"RESPONSES TO WAR: AN INTELLECTUAL AND CULTURAL HISTORY"
THE WARS OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE IN AFRICA: THE BOER WAR (1899-1902)
Updated: 28 March, 1999
Famous Dead Nontheists
A list of famous dead people who have rejected God and religion. These are people throughout history who have advocated living life without deference to a transcendent power. The list is in order of birth date.
The purposes of this list are to combat the pervasive myth that atheists are terrible, immoral people and to convince the undecided that it is OK to be an atheist. Just like any other large group of people, some of these people lived exemplary lives and others did not. The point is not that these people are all heroes, but simply to notice that there are more nontheists out there than most people realize.
For a list of living celebrity atheists, I highly recommend Reed Esau's excellent, Celebrity Atheist List ( www.celebatheists.com ) .
