Ricky Gervais on his atheism

First, from his stand-up routine Animals, he discusses the “alternative” to evolution that he found one day. “Oh, by the way, if a snake comes and talks to you, he’s a lying little shit…”

Later, in an interview, he asks a killer question: “if there IS a god, why did he make me an atheist? That was his first mistake. Well, the talking snake was his first mistake, but…”

Genius.

    Ricky was not made to be an atheist; rather, as a finite and changing being he is saying that he does not want God to be a part of his life.

    In his heart, Ricky knows that God exists; however, he just doesn’t want the love of God because he is a very selfish person who mocks other’s beliefs

    You were not made to be a Christian, but rather you were brought up to believe in God by your parents. In your heart, you know God probably doesn’t exist, however you just don’t want to risk pissing off some vastly powerful being in the event that he actually does, and you are a very selfish person who mocks other people’s beliefs.
