Just spotted this page from a link on Greta Christina’s blog. It’s a list of “… notable individuals who have been public about their lack of belief in deities”. There’s all the usual suspects, plus many others, including Linus Torvalds (I thought he was a god!). It would be nice to see this list grow, the more people that other people admire (even though some of them are only actors or singers) the more atheism will be seen as main stream and acceptable.
Hey, if celebrities can help get people elected, perhaps they can can get atheism to be popular?
