Who is your favorite famous atheist? No picking Neil DeGrasse Tyson, that is too easy. I'll go first. Sean Carroll. Has anybody seen his youtube video, moving Naturalism forward? I absolutely love watching youtubes of the atheist theoretical physicists
I choose great humor of Ricky Gervais. ..we both won bibles for being smart ass Atheists who actually read the filthy genocidal book but easily looked up verses on command from our churches and read words perfectly ALOUD before we were teenagers
Hard to pick a favorite; so many to choose from, as evidenced below. Instead, allow me to nominate my most recent favorite: Amber Scorah. Stories like hers always inspire me because it was such an emotional nightmare for me to tear myself away from a fundamentalist religious upbringing (even though it all sounded like nonsense from an early age). Scorah had it worse than me. At least I was not trained to go door to door peddling fairy tales. Scorah was a Jehovah's witness who made the turn. She wrote a book called “Leaving the Witness”.
If you get the newsletter, see Science Salon #97 from the Skeptic Society. You can also get it on YouTube by just Googling Science Salon #97 from the Skeptic Society.
But I am picking Tyson even though he rejects the label "atheist". At pseudo skeptic conventions Neil would deliver one falsehood after another. And the self proclaimed skeptics in attendance would accept his false claims without question.
We witness Shermer, Harris, Krausse et all swallowing bullshit that seems to support their personal prejudices. These hypocrites are just as credulous as Trump's birthers.
