Do you think any famous atheists look like celebrities?
Prepare yourself for some great look-alikes. The last one is really magic.
3. Daniel Dennett
I think philosopher Daniel Dennett is a pretty easy call. He looks like he moonlights as Santa Claus.
Dennett isn’t the only person who looks like Santa Claus, of course.
Charles Darwin also makes a pretty good one.
It’s important to mention, though, that Darwin was not an atheist. Scholar Nick Spencer explains that Darwin was an agnostic:
Darwin was thus an atheist with regard to the Christian God, but not an atheist period. His beliefs fluctuated during the last three decades of his life. . . . Darwin was not simply agnostic in the sense of not knowing whether or not there was a God. He came to doubt whether the human mind, being evolved from that of a “lower” animal, could know such things.
While Darwin wasn’t an atheist, I still had to include him in this post after I found his Santa picture.
2. Sam Harris
Next up is Sam Harris, who bears a remarkable resemblance to actor Ben Stiller.
I’ve heard this comparison for years, but I just saw a slightly different take on Harris’s doppelgänger. Does Harris look more like a combo of Ben Stiller and actor Seth Green?
This comparison is pretty good.
1. Richard Dawkins
This last one will blow your mind. What magic is this?!
When I first saw this GIF of Dawkins and actress Emma Watson, I was a little surprised:
What do you think of these comparisons?
Do you have any other good ones to share?
