Favorite Atheist Celebrity?
Personally, I'm a big Ricky Gervais fan. People give him grief about being so persistent with the message of atheism, animal welfare, science education, etc. But, in my life, it was that steady drumbeat that sort of lead me out of the dark.

Reading Ricky's tweets, reading about science and astronomy, and taking a good, objective look at religion in the world, all conspired to cut me loose from the bullshit. And, the fact that it's all so persistent (Ricky never lets up, Lawrence Krauss, and Neil deGrasse Tyson never let up) really helped drive the point home.

So, who are some of your favorite atheism celebs? And why?

A man blames his bad childhood on leprechauns. He claims they don't exist, but yet still says without a doubt that they stole all his money and then killed his parents. That's why he became Leprechaun-Man

Tim Minchen. Yes

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Penn & Teller. Met them after a show once, and they were exceedingly nice guys. Very gracious to the fans.

Ray comfort, every 2nd word he utters creates a new atheist.

Jokes aside, Morgan Freeman, for this quote:

"Well, here's a scientific question: Has anybody ever seen hard evidence? What we get is theories from our earlier prophets. Now, people who think that God invented us think that the Earth can't be more than 6,000 years old. So I guess it's a question of belief. My belief system doesn't support a creator as such, as we can call God, who created us in His/Her/Its image.

Freeman said answering whether he was an atheist or agnostic was "hard" because the actor thinks "we invented God."

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
