Ricky Gervais Answers Questions On Being a Godless Heathen

By

As a followup to his WSJ op-ed about atheism, Ricky Gervais answered some readers’ questions about it. For example, when asked how a comedian could be an expert on God: “Since there is nothing to know about god, a comedian knows as much about god as any one else. An atheist however is alone in knowing that there is nothing to know so probably has the edge. An Atheist comedian can make people laugh about belief or lack of it. A good atheist comedian can make people laugh AND think about belief or lack of it.” [via]
