Just wondering if anyone had any art to share done by Atheists, as in a group on FB it is being claimed that Atheists don't contribute to art like religious followers do, which must indicate some sort of lack in Atheism (they call it a "negative philosophy," gag)
Do you have any to share?
Wiki has quite a list, including Matisse, Monet, Picasso, Van Gough, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Just tell them that religious followers don't contribute enough to the sciences. It works both ways. I like artists by what their art is. I have no clue if the art work that I like was done by an atheists or not.

Alot of the above listed artist painted religious art because they were commissioned to by the church or whatever king was in rule but they them selves were not religious. They were free thinkers. Maybe you can take some art history classes somewhere so you can learn about it.
