It's almost Oscar season, and we all know what that means: a parade of well-dressed, trophy-clutching men and women thanking their friends, family, spouses, and above all, God.

I was going to make a snide comment about celebs, but meh, read through the list anyway. There was one that shocked me, Brad Pitt is an atheist? Not sure I like that notion.

I assume US celebs? There are plenty (perhaps a majority?) outside of that secular country.

I don't know much about celebs but there are surely far more than ten. Vincent D'Onofrio has no religion, I believe. It would be a brave celeb who made religion any sort of issue as it wouldn't help their brand.

I think if Jesus and Mo were born in our age they would probably be atheist..

Like wow dooooode!
If youre on TV, then your non belief must be absolutely true and applicable to everyone without exception.

PS. 95% of those 'celebrities' are non entities.

Calm down dear. It's just a news story. It was posted to Topix automatically by a 'robot'. AFAIAA no one is claiming their being atheists proves the atheist position.

He is one of the most openly pro-choice, pro-gay, atheist celebs ever.

Thank you for the flattery. However, it is misplaced. I am perfectly capable of making a point without having to fall back on an alter ego and am not either of the posters you refer to.

There are Atheists who pretend to be Christian, for the connections it brings them. Many are ministers and Bible scholars as well, making a living as a teacher of God's word is very lucrative, being an actor is just another job, even if you do not believe in God or the Bible, but you teach what people want to hear.

Do you have evidence? A link or two would be nice. Not from an apologetic site though.

Siro never has evidence, he's one of the liars for religion, all he likes to do is make assertions based on what he wants to be real.

US hosts Oscars; it means United States which is primarily
Christian with about 1% atheists....if talking of "Bollywood" event; means India & would have mainly Hinduism & fewer Muslims; then, Middle East would be primarily Muslim..atheism (no faith in God)..is low percentage in world.

Justifiable fears of the repercussions from religious nut-bags towards the non-believers that live amongst them is the number one thing that keeps the overall number of atheists worldwide from skyrocketing
