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:
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.
- 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.
