Bad Religion’s Greg Graffin: The True Face Of Atheism

Mar 26th, 2008 // 12 Comments

graffin.jpgWhether barking “What should I celebrate, given finite means and a penchant to depreciate?” or teaching Life Sciences for UCLA’s biology department, Bad Religion frontperson Dr. Greg Graffin has always promoted atheism with the utmost didacticity. So it’s great to see that the Humanist Chaplaincy, “Harvard University’s prominent community of atheists and agnostics,” is giving him the Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism. Says Humanist Chaplain Greg Epstein, “So much attention gets heaped onto polemicists like Richard Dawkins or Christopher Hitchens, but Graffin is a truly deserving candidate for the face of atheism,” Two years ago, Greg Gaffin helped me realize that there there truly is no God, so this feels overdue.

    How come most of these Ph.D. rocker guys have such pedestrian lyrics?

    Think Liz Phair ever does the webcam thing? Because that would be awesome.

    @Lucas Jensen: because most people who get degrees in writing are awful awful writers. Academics tend to teach because they can’t do very well. Or because they feel safer surrounded by others who do badly in exactly the same way.

    @drjimmy11: … but he got his PhD in Biology, not writing.

    @queensissy: So maybe it’s cause he’s a biologist and not a writer.

    Greg Graffin writes amazing lyrics. You should really read the lyrics before you go off making dumbass assumptions.
