My Favourite Atheists (40 person items)

" “We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teet"

People I Admire (33 person items)

"Why I admire this person?: Because of his critical thinking, mind opening style and his gene centered approach to evolutive biology. He taught me not to take for granted what I believed in and to not believe things because of authority."

It is a deep aesthetic passion to rank with the finest that music and poetry can deliver.

Famous Nontheists (99 person items)

"An engaging and energetic speaker, Dawkins promotes atheism as senior editor and columnist for the Council for Secular Humanism's Free Inquiry magazine, and as a member of the editorial board of Skeptic magazine since it was founded. In 2006 Dawkins founded the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, and in 2007 founded the atheist "Out" campaign, and in 2008 he supported the Atheist Bus Campaign, Britain's first atheist advertising blitz. He has been called "Darwin's Rottweiler" in "
