The recent Texas textbook issue have brougth the issue of what should be included in the history that is passed to children to the forefront. As atheists, we do not believe in supernatural agencies, but are there historical people who deserve some special reverance? Who deserves to go down in history as a hero or enter into what could quite inappropriately be called a secular or skeptic pantheon? My first nomination would be Frederick Douglass for questioning not only the religion of the time, but the entire social order. What do you think?
