UPDATE: Okay, alert readers have determined that this website is apparently a scam site run by ID creationists, at least as evidenced by posts like this or this. Very strange that these folks would go to all the trouble to make a list of atheists. So, ignore everything, especially my photo!
This is from a site called “The Best Schools,” which apparently deals with helping people find good places to get an education in various fields. They’ve put together a list of the “50 top atheists in the world today,” with #1 at the top, using criteria that include:
- Certainty (self assurance)
- Celebrity (a “public identification with atheism” and have made a “public impact”
- Energy (you have to be an “activist”)
- Seriousness (“depth and seriousness of the man or woman’s case for atheism.” They asked the question, “How many rounds could this person go in the ring (so to speak) with a top-notch defender of religious belief?”)
