These are the most famous atheist philosophers, with pictures and photos. This list of atheist philosophers, includes my favorite atheist philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. It is a philosopher's job to question the world. Small wonder then why they would question the existence of God. With that in mind, these notable atheists date back to when the belief that there is no God was much less acceptable. Enjoy this list of famous atheist philosophers!
