“I’m an atheist. But I absolutely love religions and the rituals. Even though I don’t believe in God. We celebrate pretty much every religion in our family with the kids. They love it, and when they say, Are we Jewish? or Are we Catholic? I say, Well, I’m not, but you can choose when you’re 18. But isn’t this fun that we do seders and the Advent calendar?”
Ingmar Bergman, 1918-2007 director (The Seventh Seal)
“People think there’s a solution… If everything is distributed in the proper quarters, put into the right pigeonholes, everything will be fine. But I’m not so sure. … Nothing, absolutely nothing at all has emerged out of all these ideas of faith and scepticism, all these convulsions, these puffings and blowings. For many of my fellow human beings on the other hand, I’m aware that these problems still exist — and exist as a terrible reality. I hope this generation will be the last to live under the scourge of religious anxiety.”
In post-Christian America, heathens and infidels are everywhere. Here are a few of the atheists, agnostics, and anti-theists I admire. You should keep in mind as you're reading that this blog does not exclude those that believe in a God or higher power. Critics of religion will also be highlighted from time to time.
