Daniel Dennett

This author of the 1991 bestseller Consciousness Explained establishes his atheism in his book Darwin's Dangerous Idea: "The kindly God who lovingly fashioned each and every one of us and sprinkled the sky with shining stars for our delight -- that God is, like Santa Claus, a myth of childhood, not anything a sane, undeluded adult could literally believe in. That God must either be turned into a symbol for something less concrete or abandoned altogether" (p.18).
