This Is What An Atheist Looks Like: Part 2

Flickr user jaynedemarco has been putting some nifty artwork up on the site. The theme is: “This is what an atheist looks like.”

The last time I posted about this, people had wonderful things to say.

Jayne has since added a few more pieces of art to the collection.

Here are my favorites:

Ronald Reagan, Jr.:

Steve “Woz” Wozniak:

Daniel Radcliffe:

There’s also Katharine Hepburn and Joaquin Phoenix.

You can see the entire collection here.

    Those are really awesome. I love the style, and the simple message (atheists are normal people, not baby-eating, horn-having criminals) is an important one.

    Those mentioned or portrayed in the artwork that have died aren’t atheists anymore.

    Reagan looks like Obama.

  • Secular Humanist

    Geeze, he sure does.

    Do we really want to claim Joaquin Phoenix?

  • Raul

    Siamang:

    I third that.

  • Gabriel

    Sweet. Harry Potter is an atheist. That will do so much to reach the 20 something and under age group.

    “Do we really want to claim Joaquin Phoenix?”

    I was thinking the same thing…

    These are wonderful, however. The simplicity alone is beautiful.

    Harry Potter is an atheist? Hell to the yeah!

  • Simon

    Daniel Radcliffe is an atheist!
    Oh my flying spaghetti monster, Becky Fisher was right all along!

  • Erp

    It is also amusing to note that Skandar Keynes who plays Edmund in the Narnia movies is also an atheist.

    “Those mentioned or portrayed in the artwork that have died aren’t atheists anymore.”

    That’s true. They’re dead. Christians that die are Christian any more, either. Just dead.

    Idiot.

    Woz, huzzah!

  • Erik

    Wasn’t there some debate over Radcliffe’s atheism, based on interpretation of something he said on Inside The Actor’s Studio? I don’t think he ever said he’s an atheist, unless something new has happened since then. In any case, I think a project like this is more powerful when the people chosen are those who stand up and say “hell yeah I’m an atheist!”

  • Brooks

    I didn’t know Daniel Radcliffe was an atheist. Suddenly that makes me love the Harry Potter more although I still think the books pwn the movies.

  • Kiera

    I suddenly <3 Daniel Radcliffe even more! *drool*

  • Jen

    I have no idea if Harry is an atheist, but I agree with Erik: let’s look for atheists who proudly proclaim it in plain English, not people who may or may not be, etc, etc.
