A Holiday Message from Ricky Gervais: Why I’m An Atheist
I still give my logical answer because I feel that not being honest would be patronizing and impolite. It is ironic therefore that “I don’t believe in God because there is absolutely no scientific evidence for his existence and from what I’ve heard the very definition is a logical impossibility in this known universe”, comes across as both patronizing and impolite.
This is Gervais’s answer to the question, “why are you an atheist?”. I think the whole article hits quite a few nails on the head.
