John Brockman, who is, amongst other things, the agent of both Richard Dawkins and Dan Dennett, explains his religious views:
bq. I would never say I’m an atheist. But I mean – it’s the word. I don’t believe: I’m sure there’s no God. I’m sure there’s no afterlife. But don’t call me an atheist. It’s like a losers’ club. Well, it is: it’s like – when I hear the word atheist, I think of some crummy motel where they’re having a function and these people have nowhere else to go. That’s what it means in America.
