10. Paul Kurtz

Paul Kurtz is the octogenarian founder of numerous humanist and scientific organizations, including the Council for Secular Humanism, the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, Free Inquiry magazine, and the Center for Inquiry International. Kurtz, who still speaks and writes widely on humanist topics, argues that secular humanism is different from atheism because of its emphasis on positive ethical values. His goal is to promote "living the good life without religion," he told Beliefnet in 2002. Kurtz also founded Prometheus Books, an independent publisher of books on humanism, science, philosophy, and through its newest imprint, science fiction.
