Ricky Gervais: "There shouldn't be a word for atheism'
Spending time in the US has only made Ricky Gervais a more outspoken atheist. He tells Robin Ince why thats important
My atheism might be higher-profile than other peoples atheism, but its not high on my agenda.
Lets get this out in the open as well there shouldnt be a word for atheism: it shouldnt exist, its ridiculous. If people didnt keep making up supernatural deities, I wouldnt have to deny they exist. Thats the other ridiculous, moronic tweet I get: Doesnt denying God prove his existence? I dont know where to start with that.
Ive swapped the word God with luck/nature and it works perfectly. Everything works perfectly. God created the universe, God is good to me, sometimes hes bad to me. And I was thinking about this the other day the other thing I think you can swap the word God with is the phrase I dont know. If you swap God with I dont know, it explains an awful lot, in terms of epistemology, not in terms of morals or upshots.What created the universe? I dont know. Why did I get cancer? I dont know. Why are some people born into countries of starvation? I dont know, I dont know. It works.
