Hmm... Consider if (big if) he existed... I'd say ... Jesus.


Ok, it's just an hypothesis. Don't go all medieval heathen on me. Dodgy

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Well, I'll be fucked and fucked again. I'm not the only one entertaining that notion. Wink

A close second has to be Mark Twain for writting "Letter From the Earth" and third Bertrand Russell for writting "The Devil's Dictionary".

I think you meant to say, Ambrose Bierce wrote The Devil's Dictionary.

RE: Who is, or was your favorite Atheist?
I am surprised that no one has mentioned Seth.

I will echo Dark's mention of Douglas Adams and add Robert Green Ingersoll (imagine what he could have done if he'd had a youtube account).

The atheist who has probably had the greatest effect on me simply by showing me evidence of the alternative to theism almost every Sunday of my childhood has got to be David Attenborough.

When you are raised with evolution as 'fact' then everything that follows (Adams, Hitch, Sagan, Dawkins, Jonathan Miller, Philhellenes, etc. etc.) is confirmation bias (in a good way).

Didn't even know of the guy when I joined here. Did a google for "atheist forums;" looking for a place to run my neck. Undecided
