Help PZ Pick a Title for His Book

PZ Myers is asking for help in naming his book.

I’ve got this book off at my publisher, and we’re still arguing over the title. Everything else looks good, but we can’t agree on this one rather big thing: my editor definitely wants it to be something personal and about me, of all people. So I have an exercise for everyone. Imagine an infidel like me with a book that skewers religion and triumphantly praises the godless way of life. Imagine the cover. There, in big bold print it says…

The __________ Atheist

Fill in the blank.

My suggestions are:

The Rumpled Atheist  —  The Beloved Atheist

The Gnu Atheist  —  The Insidious Atheist

The Laughing Atheist  — The Happy Atheist

The Digital Atheist  —  The High-Tech Atheist

The Scandalous Atheist  —  The Courageous Atheist

The Unabashed Atheist  —  The Kick-Ass Atheist

The Small-Town Atheist

I think my best, though, and the title I really think PZ should give his book — considering how many people he’s helped become unbelievers —  is:

The INFECTIOUS Atheist

Yeah!
