Professor Lawrence Krauss, one of the world's leading atheists...

Christ, but that gets on my nerves. I have a great deal of respect for Krauss as a scientist and educator, I could give a shit about his atheism, and he certainly isn't leading me anywhere in that vein.

Kudos to him on his stand here though. :thumbup:

That does my head in as well - "leading atheist" as in one of the most expert non-believers, as in super-duper brilliant at not believing in god. :lol:

Perhaps we should refine Dawkins's Atheist Scale and introduce a grading system, a bit like martial arts belts or music grades? So Krauss would be a 3rd dan black belt virtuoso in not believing in gods. He could not believe in 60 gods just as a warm-up. As for Big Beardy Christian God, he could not believe in him with such force that Roman Catholics who carelessly walked into Krauss's vicinity would explode. Leading atheist. Fuck yeah.
