Do you have a favorite freethought 'hero'?

Richard Dawkins needs no introduction, but there's a seven part laugh-fest here:

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

Anything that would patently qualify as a delusion if not for religious beleif would qualify. But my big three are intelligent design (psychosis vis-a-vis genetics), spiritual vegetarianism (eating disorder?), and prayer (neurosis).

When did you first admit to being an atheist?

It's been an on-off thing for me, actually. However, I finally settled on soft atheism (5.5 on the Dawkins scale) at around 19, after going from Hindu (0-6), confused (6-11), strong atheist (11-12), wannabe evangelical (12-13), to confused (13-19).


I'm an independent software developer who likes to think about the great questions of life.
