There was a time when atheists were nicer and had some class. Atheists of old drastically differered from those of today. High profile philosophers David HumeDavid Hume, Bertrand Russell and even VoltaireVoltaire (among others) were not in the closet about their non-belief.

They published anti-religion essays and in the case of Hume, rejected belief in miracles while questioning God, like Voltaire who could not understand how a loving God could have allowed the devastating earthquake in Lisbon that killed thousands of people in 1755.


Yet, these were atheists that this writer would have enjoyed conversations with over coffee and in fact, would have liked them, even though we would have had wide differences of opinion.
