Today I came across a list of the fifty greatest atheists.
Here are some of my favorite atheists, in no particular order:
Charles Darwin. For having "the single greatest idea ever to occur to a human being".
Andrew Carnegie. for his good works and generosity.
Robert Ingersoll. for his common-sense writings against Christianity and his reputation for generosity.
James Watson and Francis Crick. Yep, itwo atheists discovered that DNA was the hereditary molecule for life.
James Randi. For his skepticism and upstanding character.
Richard Dawkins, Dan Dennett, Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould, Stephen Hawking, PZ Myers and Eugenie Scott for their work in science and for bringing science to a level which everyone can understand.
