Robert Green Ingersoll (1833-1899) was an American politician and lecturer known for his adamant support of scientific and humanistic rationalism. He was a lawyer and Civil War veteran, and turned to politics in 1867 as Illinois attorney general. He was known as “The Great Agnostic” for popularization of skepticism and scientific approach to Bible. Many of Ingersoll's speeches advocated freethought and humanism, and often poked fun at religious belief. The 12-volume Dresden Editions kept interest in Ingersoll's ideas alive and preserved his speeches for future generations.
