It was suggested to me to make this list into a blog, or a group. Well I've submitted for a group to be created and I'm blogging this.
Thanks to the "net" we're finding that as "atheists" we're not alone.
No long is it a chance meeting to find one like us.
So when those say that the number of atheists are growing, I tend to take a step and try to see the whole picture.
While the number may be growing I think that with such mediums as the internet that people are being more open about their non-beliefs. I think those whose religious beliefs are frail and then to cry "Christianity is under attack!" or "Islam is under attack!" or what ever their religious is tend to do this.
But here is the list of celebrities and well knowns.

"THEIR HERE!!!!!"

Yup....nothing like having a "Sons of Confederate Veterans" bumper sticker on one side of your car's bumper and an "Obama08" sticker on the other.....
Or wearing a "Veterans for Obama" t-shirt in Congressmen Ron Paul's district.... some heads did turn...

A lot of that happened when I was a few years younger in my early twenties. Its a life lesson we can't trust the people we would like to when their brains are scrambled by christian "ethics". My politics are crazy too I go from pro-choice to NRA member I'm nuttsy for individual freedom whatever the question.
Comment by Rick on November 2, 2009 at 9:32pm
Well, Emma Goldman I believe is dead.... that may or may not have something to do with not being on the list. But don't hold me to that...
I knew Adam Savage was but didn't know Jamie Hyneman is also.
Sorry Lillith to hear about the job situation. If you could prove it then you'd have an EO case against them. However, I find in some cases it is just better to not talk about stuff like that.
Religion and politics are some things I try to avoid at work. My politics are not for everyone. I have reason for my political beliefs. Same as for my not believing in God, Budda, Mohammad and so on.

You're forgetting Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman!

I am closeted myself. I live in South Carolina and have been let go from a few jobs under mysterious circumstances after I told people I was atheist. I don't do that anymore I have my pride but I also have bills to pay *sigh*
Comment by Mihai on November 2, 2009 at 7:31am
No, not at all! And I guess there are many, many more afraid to come out of the closet.
