PZ wants help finding the right adjective for the title of his book…but I don’t think it can be done. I think The _______ Atheist is a boring title no matter what ________ turns out to be. I think this because I tried to think of something interesting and then I read other people’s attempts and there’s just no spark, no matter what. This tells me that the formula is a dud – at least, it’s a dud if they (the publishers) want a buyer-thrilling title, which of course they do.
The Something Atheist. I just don’t think there’s a word that can make that sound exciting.
Unless they go absurdist or something. The Ruritanian Atheist. The Pioneer Atheist.
Think of something. Something not boring.
