The New Horsemen

Welcome to The New Horsemen group: A place to focus on science, ...atheism and humanism. Everyone is welcome in here - atheists and theists alike. This group is for discussing science, atheism and humanism. Building on the 'Four Horsemen', but not being limited by an ancient book, the new horsemen are many and varied. We celebrate and discuss the work of skilled scientists, atheists and humanists like Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, Alice Roberts, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Lawrence Krauss, Madalyn Murray O'Hair and many others.
