People to invite

Postby Kazim » Thu Jun 15, 2006 12:20 pm

When we are ready to open this site up to the public, here is a wish list of people I would like to formally invite to help out:

* Richard Dawkins
* Daniel Dennett
* Robert Carroll (skeptic's dictionary)
* PZ Myers (Pharyngula)
* DJ Groethe (CFI)
* Paul Kurtz
* Eugenie Scott (NCSE)
* Penn Jillette
* Teller
* Reginald Finley (Infidel Guy)
* Julia Sweeney
* Janeane Garofalo
* Dan Barker
* George Carlin
* Markos Moulitsas (Daily Kos; he would probably have other people to recommend as well)
* Selected individuals from alt.atheism and talk.origins

I made this list out of people whom I believe to be most of the following:
- alive
- atheistic
- smart
- good writers
- active on the internet

Feel free to add more.

There are a number of articulate posters who congregate (in a digital sense) at http://www.atheistblogs.co.uk/

*Robert Price
*Hellbound Alleee

Hmm, that was a pretty good list. I don't really know if people like Richard Dawkins are ever online though really.

Yeah, it's a bit of a wishlist. I'll e-mail Bob Price though I'm not sure if this sort of thing is really the sort of thing he'd enjoy.

Many of the folks on the list are probably far too busy with other things to really dig in - but I'd sure like to get them all signed up, even if they only drop by on rare occasions and offer corrections.

That'd be so cool if we got at least some of those guys on.

Paul Tobin has an excellent resource (not just about Pascal's wager, despite the title) at http://www.geocities.com/paulntobin/

He doesn't appear to update on a frequent basis (although regularly - every couple of months or so) but his arguments are very well written, and he provides detailed references.
But honest men do not pretend to know; they are candid and sincere; they love the truth; they admit their ignorance, and they say, "We do not know." - Robert Green Ingersoll, "Superstition" (1898)

It's a little ambitious, but how about (from The Atheism Tapes TV series):

  • Jonathan Miller
  • Colin McGinn
  • Steven Weinburg


Other atheist types from the series have already been mentioned above, or in the case of Arthur Miller, are deceased.

I thought he might have been previously mentioned (seemingly not) but Dennis McKinsey might also be worth inviting.
