Thank God I'm an Atheist!

Ricky Gervais, a famous British comedian, hosted the Golden Globes this year, and delivered some too-close-to-the-bone humour to the Hollywood audience and has since taken some flack for it. He went on CNN for what seemed like a somewhat staged and not-too-confrontational discourse with host Piers Morgan. Here is what ensued.

How refreshing to see stuff like this getting in to mainstream media. I mean, how can anyone sensible disagree with what he is saying?


  1. Ricky Gervais has really impressed me lately. Since around the holidays when he got a bunch of flack for saying things about Christmas. Since then he's just really come out and started talking, which I think all atheists should do. He makes a lot of good points that, you're right, are hard to disagree with!

  2. Even a true believer would be like "hmmm... we only disagree on the existence of God. As long as he's following the golden rule, I can get along with him."

    We wish!
