During the Golden Age of Freethought in 19th century America, there lived an agnostic called Colonel Robert Green Ingersoll, who could draw in crowds that paid $1 or more (a substantial sum in those days) to hear him ridicule religious belief (a "new atheist") and point out the dangers of religion butting into politics and people's personal lives.

All but forgotten by history in a country that has been keen on sweeping figures such as Robert Ingersoll, Thomas Paine and Ernestine Rose under the rug of American consciousness, these people are now making a comeback due to the upsurge in humanism, secularism and atheism in the US.
Here's my attempt at putting Ingersoll and his ideas back into the public sphere. This man already said all there is to say about creationist humbug and the dangers of mixing religion and politics.
