Probably the most well-known atheist in the world, Richard Dawkins is also a very competent science educator. He has also spoken often of “an appetite for wonder” and for the beauties of the world.

Dawkins’ words on the wonder of the world are poetic, his scientific explanations are clear and accessible to the layperson, and his arguments regarding reason, science, religion, and irrationality are passionate.
