BBC Blogger’s Person of the Year

As if there were any question…?

It’s Richard Dawkins.

Why is he the Person of the Year? Some of William Crawley’s many reasons follow:

  • For thinking clearly in a world that doesn’t much value clear thinking anymore.
  • For defending the delusion that science and religious faith are incompatible.
  • For lobbying atheism and humanism into the headlines more than anyone else has done before.
  • For marrying the actress who played Romana in Doctor Who.
  • For being rude and getting away with it.

Love him or hate him, it is true he’s done more to get atheism in the public forum than anyone else (including Sam Harris) this past year.
