It's great that well known people say they are atheists. It gives me hope that the word will spread.

Wow. Gervais says he converted at eight years old in about one hour after his brother brought up the question about gods existence and his mom panicked.

It took me reading, End of faith and half of god is not great, to convert to atheism.

Reason always wins in the end. Sometimes it just takes a few thousand years or so.
Next, we will stop killing each other because "my god is better than your god."

Gervais is a funny man....but let's not get carried away....Xianity is just as funny and I could laugh at it more if it wasn't so harmful to children.

Brainwashing children and robbing them of their critical thinking ability for the rest of their lives is child abuse....and should be criminal.

What's this converting to atheism horseshit?.... you either believe the childish lies or Xianity or you don't...labels are not important.

Logical fallacy: By what form of logic does one conclude that during long night in horrible pain, trying to sleep, desiring the sun to rise...does one conclude the sun will NOT rise. "Faith" always has an object and can be demonstrated (Anti-thesis). Faith in Faith is like believing in the tooth fairy.

Converting to atheism is just an form of expressing the transition to non-belief. Labels are just our form of language.

How true, and what a condemnation of religious faith.
