Tim Minchin In New Scientist

Are you on a mission for science?
I’m a gateway drug into philosophy and scepticism, because I’m the moron version of it. But I use terms like causation or confirmation bias that kids can go and look up if they’re interested. I refuse to hold a banner up too much, though. It’s incredibly obvious that I’m an atheist and a rationalist and a sceptic, but you won’t often hear me calling myself one. The longer I can just be quirky, wacky and arty in the public eye the better. I play piano and I make people cry, and people don’t walk out calling me an atheist. And that’s incredibly valuable, because I get to sneak in the message. It’s naughty really.
