While many people around the world are religious and believe that gods are responsible for happiness and prosperity, some are of the opinion that a man writes his own destiny. You will be surprised to know that many great achievers of today are agnostic. Academy Award winner Jack Nicholson, known for his iconic ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’, ‘The Shining’ and ‘The Departed’ once said ‘I don’t believe in god now but can still work up an envy for someone who has a faith. I can see how that could be a deeply soothing experience.’ Interviews with ‘Apple’ co-founder Steve Wozniak have revealed that the famous entrepreneur is neither an atheist nor agnostic. Legendary musician and ‘Beatles’ member John Lennon was agnostic too. The lyrics of the hit single ‘Imagine’ spoke volumes about his agnostic side. Actor Bruce Lee, known for his films like ‘Enter The Dragon’ and acclaimed stand-up comedian George Carlin are two other famous celebrities who question the existence of god. The quotes of these famous people prove that not everybody believes that god is a supreme power who drives this world. We have compiled a list of famous personalities who are agnostic. This list also includes some of your favorite celebrities. While some ardent believers may criticize these celebrities for not being thankful to almighty, these individuals have their own reasons for being atheist/agnostic.
