Apparently there is no thread too humorous for you to turn it into a rantfest. But here we are, so I may as well answer: Yes, I'm a big fan of Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett. (Christopher Hitchens not so much, though I have nothing against him, either.) I never made a secret of this. Indeed, Richard Dawkins was my avatar on A2K before Douglas Adams was.
