The fields of their degrees don't really matter, it's more about what they've done since getting those degrees. Sagan is equally at home with astrophysics, religion, biology, astronomy... Pertinent to this discussion are his Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, and The Varieties of Scientific Experience, Notes on the Personal Search for God.

Wrong. I consider myself a good - enough skeptic that I question Dawkins. If you don't question him you're a cult follower, not a skeptic. I prefer Sagan, while recognizing his biases and hobby horses, as well as disagreeing on salient points.

Name the points you question each of the above on, and why.
Something is not a "must read" just because you agree with them.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

I don't think I've read any explicitly atheist literature. (I mean other than the existentialists and nihilists, but they more implicitly atheist.) Why would I bother?

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