Anyone who doubts the work of Richard Dawkins in raising the profile of atheism ought to look at this piece of research, which has found that the God Delusion author is Britain's third most prolific internet personality.
Online identity firm Garlik have recently launched "QDOS", a system which measures an individual's internet status based on four factors – popularity, impact, activity and individuality. The British top ten consisted almost entirely of musicians, the sole exception being Dawkins at number three. This means his internet profile is far greater than the likes of David Beckham, JK Rowling and Gordon Brown.
Now, come people might disagree with Dawkins' approach, but no one can deny his contribution to getting the arguments for atheism out into the mainstream.
Keep up the good work Richard.
