March 11 in freethought history…

douglasadamsMarch 11, 1952 – English humorist Douglas Adams, best known for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (which was both a radio and novel series), is born in Cambridge, England. He described himself as a “radical atheist” so as to leave no doubt that he was adamant in his disbelief. Adams introduced mutual friends Richard Dawkins (the evolutionary biologist and fellow atheist firebrand) and Lalla Ward (an actress on the popular Doctor Who television series), who married in 1992. Adams died unexpectedly in 2001, aged 49.
