Do you have a favorite freethought 'hero'?

An atheist doesn't have to be someone who thinks he has proof that there can't be a god. He only has to be someone who believes that the evidence on the God question is at a similar level to the evidence on the werewolf question. -John McCarthy father of AI

What's the stupidest religious idea you've ever heard?

To many to single one out. Virgin birth, rise from the dead, flood the planet, stop the sun (rotation of the earth), create the universe in 6 day to name a few jewish/christian ideas. A god for every problem to pick on some of the others. Buddha came closest "Don't think about it."

When did you first admit to being an atheist?

I became an agnostic after reading "Voyage of the Beagle" followed by "Origin of Species". Then somewhere in the Army realized an agnostic was an atheist without any balls.
