Ateis Atheis atheis dalam kehidupan nyata adalah kelompok yang agak beragam. Bagaimanapun, satu-satunya yang dikonfirmasi oleh atheis label adalah orang tersebut tidak percaya pada tuhan. Its seperti mencoba untuk membuat generalisasi koheren tentang orang-orang yang tidak suka baseball. Namun, dalam fiksi, meski cukup umum melihat karakter yang tidak pernah diperlihatkan berlatih atau bahkan menyebutkan agama, karakter umumnya hanya dengan tingkat sinisme dan kepahitan yang adil yang akan menyatakan secara langsung bahwa mereka adalah seorang ateis. Beberapa karakter yang lebih umum adalah: Kovinisme Kotor atau trauma lainnya. Atau kehidupan yang menyedihkan secara umum adalah penyebab langsung pertobatan mereka terhadap ateisme. Serta Rage Against the Heavens pada Tuhan yang membiarkan hal seperti itu terjadi. Akibatnya, Ateis Hollywood dapat dengan mudah dibuat untuk membalikkan atau menguji kembali kurangnya kepercayaan mereka jika terjadi sesuatu yang baik. Bahkan jika tidak ada hubungan eksplisit antara kejadian baik dan intervensi ilahi. Sebaliknya, ketika sesuatu yang buruk terjadi (terutama kematian mereka sendiri yang mendekat) atheis tiba-tiba menjadi cukup bagi orang beriman untuk berdoa meminta pertolongan. Di sinilah Anda mendapatkan yang lama (dan dibantah) dengan mengatakan Tidak ada atheis di dalam lubang perlindungan. Lihat Nay-Theist jika mereka percaya pada kekuatan yang lebih tinggi namun dendam pada alasan ini. Ateis telah dimatikan oleh orang-orang munafik dan penjahat yang bertindak atas nama agama dan hanya perlu ditunjukkan orang yang tidak munafik atau heroik untuk melihat terangnya. Ateis menunjukkan penghinaan, ketidaksukaan, atau bahkan kebencian terhadap agama dan tuhan (yang mungkin menjadi kontradiktif sampai pada titik yang mereka tampaknya tidak disebut Theis sebagai gantinya), dan akan mengejek orang-orang percaya tanpa akhir. Ateis entah bagaimana hanya tidak sadar akan agama, dan dengan senang hati akan berkonversi saat mengetahui dasar-dasar dogma apa pun yang didukung pekerjaan tersebut. Harapkan mereka di sebuah Author Tract (terlepas dari namanya ini muncul sejak buku Hayy ibn Yaqzan. Membuat trope ini lebih tua dari feodalisme). Ateis sepertinya hanya memiliki argumen melawan budaya dominan mereka. Di dunia nyata inilah yang paling sering menjadi agama Kristen, dan pada tingkat yang lebih rendah, saudara-saudaranya Yudaisme dan Islam. Mereka tidak memiliki apa-apa untuk dikatakan tentang spiritualitas lain-mereka bahkan mungkin melihatnya secara positif sebaliknya. Namun perlu dicatat bahwa beberapa agama Timur memiliki varian atheis seperti Buddhisme, Hinduisme, dan Jainisme8212 dimana filsafat mereka dipraktekkan namun ibadah tidak dilakukan. Ateis adalah materialis dan mungkin juga ahli teknik transhumanis robotman, yang secara efektif memilikinya sebagai agama mereka. Ateis adalah hedonis dan individu egois yang hanya peduli pada diri sendiri dan kebahagiaan mereka sendiri. Ateis memiliki keyakinan pseudo-religius dalam sains dan logika. Itulah sains. Bukan ateisme Beberapa atheis mungkin memegang ini, tapi sekali lagi, itu bukan sifat yang menentukan. Ateis tertekan, kesepian, anti sosial, dan seringkali Jeruk Nihilis. Ateis benar-benar jahat. Selain kekurangan agama, mereka juga tidak memiliki empati terhadap orang lain. Poin bonus diberikan jika mereka yakin bahwa menolak agama membuat mereka bebas dari konsep kebaikan dan kejahatan (yang sepertinya hanya membuat seseorang penjahat). Bandingkan dan kontras FaithHeel Turn. Ateis dengan sombong yakin akan superioritas intelektual mereka sendiri dan biasanya buta terhadap kebenaran dengan pretensi elitis mereka sendiri. Biasanya, mereka ditunjukkan sebagai Tidak Berbeda dengan lawan agama mereka, terutama yang lebih fanatik. Ateis tidak hanya membantah melawan teisme, namun dapat secara aktif mendiskriminasi, melecehkan, dan bahkan menganiaya orang-orang percaya. Dalam karya lama mereka mungkin stereotip sebagai Anarkis Bom-Melontarkan dan atau Komentari Kotor. Mengingat prevalensi atheisme diantara para ideolog tersebut. Hubungan dengan komunisme (biasanya mengutip kejahatan Uni Soviet, dll.) Masih sering digunakan untuk meremehkan atheisme, bahkan ketika atheis tertentu sama sekali tidak komunis. Yang umum untuk semua penggambaran Atheis Hollywood adalah gagasan bahwa iman adalah keadaan alami dan sesuatu harus terjadi untuk mengusir karakter dari norma. Mengingat bahwa mayoritas manusia di seluruh dunia beragama (dengan tingkat yang bervariasi), ini sangat mewarnai media dengan baik, namun tetap saja, alasan saya selalu untuk tidak percaya adalah X. Seseorang tidak pernah mendengar saya tidak memiliki alasan untuk percaya, yang merupakan hal yang biasa. (Jika bukan yang paling umum) yang sebenarnya diberikan oleh atheis. Lihat juga Target Keagamaan yang Dapat Diterima. Pengecualian utama adalah fiksi ilmiah yang sering kali berlanjut sejauh ini, dengan cara lain untuk menyatakan bahwa Agama itu salah dan kemanusiaan telah melampaui Takhayul Konyol seperti itu. Bagi atheis yang hidup dalam setting fantasi dimana keberadaan tuhan tak terbantahkan, lihat Atheis Bumi-Flat dan Nay-Theist. Seperti halnya tokoh-tokoh strawman lainnya, Hollywood Atheism adalah karikatur dari sikap Real Life yang dibuat sesuai dengan tujuan berbagai penulis menurut definisinya, atheis sejati bukanlah contohnya. Fakta bahwa ada minoritas kecil Ateis dalam Real Life yang menunjukkan karakteristik ini tidak berarti bahwa Anda harus mengasumsikan bahwa karakteristik tersebut berlaku untuk atheis yang Anda temui. Bandingkan dengan Holier Than Thou. Dan lihat Krisis Iman. Lihat juga Catatan berguna tentang ateisme. Tidak menjadi bingung dengan beberapa gerakan konservatif Amerika lebih banyak anggota vokal melihat perang Hollywood terhadap Iman. Openclose semua folder Anime dan Manga Fullmetal Alchemist Edward Elric, seorang pemuda pahit yang kehilangan kepercayaannya pada allah baik hati ketika usaha untuk membangkitkan kembali ibunya yang telah meninggal menjadi sangat kesal dan menjadi sangat kesal dan merendahkan ketika menyangkut agama. Namun, ia sering tampak lebih dari seorang Nay-Theist. Mengingat bahwa Tuhan atau yang paling dekat dengan itu adalah Kebenaran, siapakah yang mengambil lengan dan kaki Eds bersama dengan tubuh Als. Di bab pertama manga, Ed bergumam bahwa dia agnostik saat Rose melanjutkan mukjizat para imam setempat. Di anime 2003. Edward digambarkan sebagai teist agnostik dan bukan seorang ateis. Sementara dia masih secara terbuka mempertanyakan keberadaan Tuhan, beberapa baris memperjelas bahwa dia percaya pada seseorang bahkan jika dia tidak menyembahnya. Theres juga bab selanjutnya tentang perang Ishvalan, di mana pemimpin agama negara tersebut menyerahkan dirinya untuk menyelamatkan bangsanya. Raja Bradley menyatakan bahwa hidupnya tidak layak bagi seluruh bangsa dan tertawa bahwa jika tuhan mereka ada, mengapa Dia tidak menyerangnya untuk genosida tersebut? Tak lama kemudian, Mustang dan Hughes membahas agama-agama agama dan bagaimana tuhan mereka tampaknya telah meninggalkan mereka. King Bradley melangkah lebih jauh lagi, berulang kali menyatakan bahwa tidak ada Tuhan kecuali yang dibuat manusia. Ini menambah dimensi lain dalam pertempuran terakhirnya melawan Scar. Seorang pria saleh yang hidupnya hancur karena perintah Bradley, terutama saat kilatan cahaya matahari terpancar pada pedangnya (matahari menjadi simbol tuhan di agama Alkimia dan Ishak) yang membutakannya dan membiarkan Scar mendaratkan pukulan fatal. Pada versi anime 2003. Kolonel Roy Mustang terombang-ambing ke arah atheisme, dan memiliki masa lalu yang traumatis. Dia sedikit lelah di dunia dan semacam Jerk dengan Hati Emas. Dia tetap menjadi karakter heroik sampai akhir, pada satu titik menantang meneriakkan Tidak ada Tuhan yang akan menyelamatkan penyelamat dari seorang musuh bebuyutan. Nemesis tersebut mendapat julukan jahat, Hannibal. Meskipun, dengan mengatakan, Mungkin tidak, tapi ada Iblis, dan Anda alkemis itu. Ironisnya bagi Flame Alchemist agar terbakar. Simon dari Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann memainkan yang ini sampai tingkat tertentu selama Heroic B.S.O.D nya .. sambil masih berkabung atas kematian Kaminas. Pada satu titik dia mengatakan kepada mantan anggota First Mecha anggota Rossiu sesuatu di sepanjang garis, Mungkinkah tuhanmu mencegah kematian Bros. Oh, ya, saya lupa, hanya seorang Ganmen Dia akhirnya meminta maaf karena bersikap kasar. Gundam 00. Setsuna F. Seiei, tokoh utamanya, adalah mantan Muslim yang kehilangan kepercayaannya saat bertempur sebagai pemberontak teroris Anak Prajurit dan menyaksikan kengerian perang. Iman ini telah diganti dengan keyakinan akan konsep Gundam yaitu, apapun yang digunakan untuk pemberantasan perang apakah itu setelan mobile atau yang mengujinya, maka Setsuna menyatakan dirinya bukan hanya Gundam meister (pilot) tapi Gundam. Ini membantu Gundam pertama yang dia lihat setelah kehilangan kepercayaannya memiliki getaran malaikat yang pasti. Ini juga membantu dia dimanipulasi untuk menjadi pemberontak (dan membunuh keluarganya sendiri) oleh seseorang yang meminta kepercayaan Muslimnya untuk membenarkannya. Dan kata manipulator itu adalah salah satu karakter yang paling jahat dan mementingkan diri sendiri, metaverse Gundam pernah melahirkan, siapa yang melakukan semuanya karena dia dibayar dan mencintai kekacauan. Ditolak oleh Roronoa Zoro di One Piece. Yang diwahyukan menjadi seorang atheis selama busur Skipeia, tapi bukan karena masa lalunya yang tragis, dan sama sekali tidak memiliki masalah dengan iman. Hanya saja KARENA dia melihat begitu banyak petualangan aneh dan aneh yang dia anggap lebih mungkin bahwa apa pun yang tidak bisa dijelaskan hanyalah kekuatan super yang belum mereka dengar namun berbeda dengan sesuatu yang disebabkan oleh Tuhan yang sebenarnya. Mampu menurunkan petir pada kehendak doesnt terlihat sebagai ilahi setelah kru Anda telah menghabiskan waktu melawan badai pasir hidup dan mengendarai geyser ke langit. Selanjutnya, dia juga menyatakan bahwa jika tuhan memang ada, dia ingin bertemu dengannya karena dia akan menjadi Lawan yang Layak. Dia hanya itu badass. Foh dari Bt X adalah keengganannya. Setelah menyerah pada gagasan bahwa tuhan ada karena menyaksikan perang sejak kecil, akhirnya dia menyadari bahwa tidak berarti dia bisa menyebalkan. Kenyataannya, karena bertanggung jawab untuk membunuh satu karakter, terbunuh, sebuah masalah yang membuat dirinya terbunuh meski terlepas dari nasib dunia yang tergantung pada keseimbangan, mungkin merupakan faktor pendorong. Dia sangat percaya pada belas kasihan dan belas kasihan, dengan keras membenci pertempuran karena hanya menimbulkan tragedi bagi orang-orang, dan mengelola panti asuhan dan mengangkat anak-anak dengan benar. Dia bahkan memakai kenang-kenangan religius dari teman-temannya saudara perempuan yang telah meninggal. Ini membantu Masami Kurumada, penulis seri, adalah seorang ateis. Hampir semua orang di Black Lagoon semuanya dinyatakan ateis, kehilangan kepercayaan mereka selama masa kanak-kanak mereka. Dalam kasus Revys, diganti dengan materialisme nihilistik (dengan kata-katanya sendiri: Uang dan senjata Selama Anda memiliki mereka, dunia adalah tempat yang tepat.), Sementara Hansel dan Gretel benar-benar gila karena ketidakadilan yang dilakukan pada mereka dan Menjadi yakin satu-satunya tujuan di balik keberadaan adalah membunuh atau dibunuh. Satu-satunya pengecualian terhadap peraturan ini adalah penjahat busur Takenaka, yang adalah seorang ateis tapi tidak memiliki cerita sobek untuk melakukannya. Baran the Emperor of Light, penjahat dari bab terakhir dari Fist of the North Star manga, yang percaya pada Tuhan berasal dari fakta bahwa saudara perempuannya yang meninggal meninggal karena penyakit yang dapat disembuhkan karena dia menolak untuk minum obat yang dia curi untuknya. Kepercayaannya kemudian mendorongnya untuk memulai kultusnya sendiri. Black Butler memberi kami Ciel Phantomhive.

Mereka menculiknya. Di mana dia disimpan secara harfiah dalam kandang dengan anak-anak lain seusianya, secara tersirat telah diperkosa oleh geng pada waktu dekat setiap malam, dan akhirnya mencela imannya selama sebuah upacara di mana dia menjadi pengorbanan. Beginilah dia datang untuk mendapatkan Sebastian, yang adalah seorang pelayan biasa. Ciel, tiga tahun kemudian, masih memiliki ketidakpercayaan yang tak henti-hentinya pada Tuhan, dan kenyataannya, jika dia bukan seorang Ateis Hollywood, dia mungkin hanya menjadi pengikut Setan karena kepercayaannya sepenuhnya pada Sebastian. Gundam Wing memberi kita contoh yang agak aneh, dalam bentuk Duo Maxwell. Duo memakai kerah ulama dan Creepy Cool Crosses. Tapi dia menyatakan dalam Episode Zero bahwa dia percaya pada Grim Reaper tapi bukan Tuhan karena saya belum pernah melihat keajaiban, tapi saya yakin melihat banyak orang mati (menggelikan, pendeta Cool Old Guy mengakui bahwa sulit untuk memperdebatkan logikanya). Dalam Teardrop Beku (ditetapkan 30 tahun ke depan) dia tampak menjadi seorang pengkhotbah, namun lebih banyak lagi yang menjadi front untuk pekerjaan Bounty Hunter-nya daripada yang lain. Batman digambarkan sebagai ateis oleh beberapa penulis, mungkin sebagai efek samping karena orang tuanya dibunuh dan menghabiskan 10 sampai 15 tahun terakhir untuk melihat lapisan bawah tubuh yang berlendir. Ini adalah Batman, jika dia percaya kepada Tuhan, dia mungkin punya rencana untuk membawa Dia keluar, dan bisa melaksanakannya, diberi waktu persiapan yang cukup. Mengingat bahwa Batman telah melihat setan, menjadi rekan setim dengan malaikat, dan pada umumnya mengalami hal-hal mistis yang cukup untuk mengetahui bahwa ada sesuatu keberadaan tertinggi, posisi Batman kadang ditulis bukan karena Tidak ada Tuhan. Tetapi ketika saya akhirnya bertemu dengan Tuhan, Hed lebih baik memiliki Penjelasan yang sangat bagus untuk semua omong kosong ini. Setelah banyak penelitian, orang-orang di situs Penganut Pandang menyimpulkan bahwa Batman adalah Episcopalian yang murtad atau Katolik. Neil Gaiman memberinya kehidupan akhirat atheis yang cocok: dia bisa bereinkarnasi seperti dirinya sendiri, di Bumi yang berbeda, setiap saat. Paling tidak di Zaman Perunggu. Dia jelas bukan seorang praktisi religius. Ketika ditanya oleh Dr. Leslie Thompkins apakah dia pernah sholat, dia menjawab No Tidak sejak malam itu. Menurut Batman Beyond. Batman hanya percaya pada tuhan yang dia punya bukti. Misalnya, dia jelas tidak cukup bodoh untuk menyangkal semua malaikat, dewa, setan, zombie, dan lain-lain. Mereka terlihat nyata. Namun, dengan cepat dia menunjukkan bahwa dia tidak percaya pada sebagian besar klaim mereka, karena hes cukup berpengalaman untuk mengetahui dewa, malaikat, setan dan setan yang sebenarnya dari hal-hal yang palsu. Batman tentu tidak menyembah Tuhan atau mempraktikkan agama, setidaknya dari apa yang terlihat di pertunjukan. Secara teknis, Batman sudah membunuh SATU tuhan. Freddy Krueger -esque Mister Rictus dari buku komik miniseri Wanted. Dia adalah orang Kristen yang paling saleh sampai dia meninggal di meja operasi setelah kecelakaan. Setelah melihat apa yang ada di luar, bukan apa-apa. Dia benar-benar gila dan mulai melakukan apapun yang dia rasakan tanpa batasan atau moralitas apapun. Tentu saja fakta bahwa kecelakaan yang menimpanya sampai pada tingkat yang konyol mungkin telah memberi kontribusi. Dia pada dasarnya adalah personifikasi salah satu reaksi atheis yang paling umum terhadap orang Ateis tidak memiliki klaim kode moral - yaitu, Jika iman benar-benar satu-satunya hal yang membuat seseorang memiliki moral, maka seseorang memiliki masalah. Warren Ellis telah menggunakan pendekatan serupa beberapa kali. Di Stormwatch.

Dia adalah pria yang penuh welas asih dan heroik yang kebetulan adalah seorang ateis, dan teman baik dengan Dokter Mid-Nite, seorang Katolik yang taat. Rumit dengan kehadiran beberapa makhluk ilahi di The DCU. Beberapa di antaranya pernah bekerja dengannya, namun ada berbagai pembenaran yang diberikan untuk itu. Perkembangan dengan Tuan Terrific (terutama bertemu dengan mitranya di Bumi-2 mk II) telah cukup banyak membuktikan bahwa dia secara acuh tak acuh religius sampai istrinya meninggal, pada saat mana dia kesal pada Tuhan seandainya dia bertahan, dia akan menemukan iman yang mendalam Dari mukjizat itu, jadi sekarang giliran pacaran ini sekarang. Madcap dalam komik Ghost Rider tidak percaya pada Zadkiel (malaikat jahat yang menguasai surga) meskipun dia langsung bekerja untuknya. Dan perhatikan bahwa ini terjadi di alam semesta Marvel, di mana, beberapa dekade yang lalu, Gorgon secara matematis membuktikan keberadaan Tuhan. Konon, Madcap adalah salah satu contoh paling tragis dari piala ini, seorang pemuda religius yang saleh yang melihat seluruh jemaahnya meninggal dengan mengerikan dalam kecelakaan yang memberinya kekuatan super. Tak perlu dikatakan, insiden semacam itu sama sekali tidak membantu stabilitas mentalnya. Namun, juga patut dicatat bahwa segi atheis kepribadiannya hanya diperkenalkan di komik Ghost Rider. Dalam satu crossover Punisher Wolverine ada seorang penjahat bernama The Atheist, yang menyatakan kurangnya kepercayaannya pada sesuatu yang memberinya kebebasan untuk melakukan apa yang dia suka. Dalam Komik Marvel. Yang tidak diobati adalah ras alien yang tahu diri mereka diciptakan oleh tuhan (ini adalah Marvel Universe, tidak jelas apakah ini adalah Dewa Fisik atau Alien yang Cukup Lanjutan). Ini membuat mereka sangat rendah diri, jadi mereka membunuh makhluk ini. Mereka kemudian menjadi Scary Dogmatic Aliens dan meluncurkan kampanye silang balik genosida untuk memusnahkan semua peradaban yang menyembah segala keilahian. Starjammers mengalahkan armada mereka dengan menipu mereka agar percaya bahwa tuhan mereka telah kembali. Mereka bunuh diri. Chick Tracts menampilkan atheis Hollywood, khususnya Hollywood dari tahun 1950an. Di hari yang baik. Tidak ada alasan wimpy di ayat Chick-y, dan atheis yang tidak mendengar tentang orang Yesus ini untuk pertama kalinya dalam hidup mereka dan bertobat di tempat adalah Penjahat Pelacak Kartu. Oh, dan ini semua seharusnya menjadi penggambaran realistis dunia. Setidaknya atheis dapat yakin bahwa hampir setiap sistem kepercayaan lainnya kecuali penulis mendapat perlakuan yang sama. Terbalik dalam komik satu tembakan A Momentary Lapse of Unreason. Tokoh utama mulai mempertanyakan Tuhan karena orang tuanya meninggal dalam kecelakaan mobil, namun dengan mempertanyakan dia mulai mendasarkan atheisme pada argumen logika dan teologis daripada kesengsaraan. Gorr the God-Jagal. Seorang penjahat dari jalan cerita 2015 untuk Marvels The Mighty Thor menghitung. Dia mulai sebagai anak yang skeptis, tapi seumur hidup melihat keyakinan religius bangsanya sia-sia saja, ibunya dipukuli oleh predator di depan kuil dewa, dunianya mulai mengering dan mati, semua anak-anaknya kecuali satu Anak laki-laki meninggal karena kelaparan, istri yang sedang hamil terbunuh dalam gempa bumi, dan satu-satunya anaknya yang masih hidup meninggal karena kelaparan karena haus akan kesia-siaannya untuk menemukan tempat baru untuk tinggal 8212 meyakinkannya bahwa tidak ada tuhan. Ketika dia berbicara mengenai hal ini, sukunya membuat dia menghujat, mendorongnya ke padang gurun untuk mati dengan sendirinya. Dimana, secara ajaib, salah satu tuhannya menabrak di depannya. Terluka parah setelah menghadapi pukulan mematikan ke dewa hitam yang asing. Ketika dewa meminta Gorr untuk meminta bantuan, Gorr meledak dalam kemarahan, menuntut untuk mengetahui di mana para allah sepanjang hidupnya dan mengapa mereka tidak membantu keluarganya. Dalam kemarahannya, dia secara tidak sengaja mengambil esensi yang memotori dewa hitam, Allblack the Necrosword, dan membunuh tuhannya. Sekarang terangkat ke status Tuhan Fisik sendiri dan yakin bahwa Tuhan itu jahat. Gorr mulai tanpa tujuan mengembara di alam semesta, membunuh dan menyiksa semua tuhan yang dapat dia temukan sebelum membuat sebuah rencana untuk menghancurkan semua dewa di mana-mana sekaligus dengan sebuah mega-bom yang didukung oleh jantung Tuhan Penatua yang disembelih. Dalam adaptasi Eclipse Comics yang dibatalkan dari kartu perdagangan Topps Dinosaurs Attack (yang akhirnya dicetak ulang dan diselesaikan oleh IDW Publishing), ditetapkan bahwa ilmuwan Elias Thorne telah meninggalkan kepercayaannya kepada Tuhan karena kematian saudara laki-lakinya. Namun, dia keluar dari situ setelah bertemu dengan the Supreme Monstrosity dan bahkan bersatu kembali dengan semangat saudara laki-lakinya saat dia meninggal. Refleksi Salah. Sangat diremehkan dengan Eleya. Dia adalah seorang pemuja nabi, tapi dia menyebutkan bahwa dia menjadi lebih sekuler dan mulai melewatkan hari-hari suci setelah dia melihat salah satu Orbs para nabi dan sama sekali tidak melihat apa-apa. Bermain lurus dengan Mirror Eleya, yang keberatannya mencerminkan yang dibesarkan oleh beberapa orang Bajoran di Star Trek: Deep Space Nine mengenai pendudukan Kardassian terhadap Bajor (mereka cenderung adalah pemuja Pah-Wraith, tapi Mirror Eleya adalah seorang ateis lurus). Dia sempat mendapat pertengkaran dengan operasi Perdana Eleyas officerboyfriend Reshek Gaarra mengenai masalah ini namun Perdana Menteri Eleya mengatakan kepadanya untuk dapat melakukannya. Dal Kanril Eleya: Baiklah kalau begitu, jika para nabi itu begitu hebat, di mana mereka saat Terrans muncul satu abad yang lalu Barbara GordonOracle adalah contoh yang meremehkan di Angel of the Bat. Barbara tersirat telah berhenti mempercayai Tuhan setelah dia dinonaktifkan oleh The Joker. Meskipun demikian, dia tidak berperan aktif dalam mendukung atau melawan perjalanan Cassandras untuk menemukan agama, dan merayakan Natal bersama ayahnya. Joshua Lebowitz adalah contoh yang berbeda: Dia mengalami hal-hal mengerikan dalam hidupnya dan tidak percaya kepada Tuhan Tapi tidak pernah percaya kepada Tuhan untuk memulai. Dia hanya berperilaku dengan cara keras untuk mengusir The Seraphim. Di Hogwarts School of Doa dan Mukjizat. Orangtua asuh Harry yang tuhan Paman Vernon dan Bibi Petunia, yang percaya bahwa Tuhan sudah mati karena membaca Dawkins. Di Jalan yang Tidak Diambil Brigadir Jenderal Ro Laren agak mengejek penghinaan sesama Bajoran kepada para Nabi. (Ini dipinjam dari Star Trek Novelverse, di mana Ro didirikan sebagai ateis, dan memakai anting-antingnya di telinga yang salah untuk mencegah pendeta agar tidak merasakan paghanya.) Dalam Anak Gurun Subverted dengan Trisha, Ishvala memunggungi Jauh sebelum hidupnya berubah menjadi asam. Meskipun dia kurang percaya, dia berpartisipasi dalam banyak tradisi karena alasan sosial tapi tidak percaya pada Ishvala sebaliknya. Dia bahkan menolak untuk berdoa saat dia sekarat. Contoh yang diremehkan dalam Perbedaan Budaya. Flash Sentry memberitahu Sunset Shimmer dan Putri Twilight bahwa dia adalah seorang ateis dan tidak percaya pada tuhan manapun. Hal ini menyebabkan dia memiliki argumen kecil dengan Twilight, yang percaya sepenuhnya pada tuhannya sendiri, Ratu Faust, tentang bagaimana mungkin untuk tidak mempercayai tuhan dan bagaimana Anda dapat yakin bahwa setiap orang di dunia Anda percaya sama seperti Anda. Matahari terbenam akhirnya menenangkan mereka berdua dan menjelaskan kepada mereka bahwa naluri yang dimiliki kuda poni yang mereka percayai dalam Ratu Faust tidak dimiliki oleh manusia. Flash untuk bagiannya mengatakan bahwa dia lebih merupakan seorang Agnostik akhir-akhir ini karena semua kejadian magis yang telah disaksikannya secara langsung dan lebih bersedia untuk percaya pada hal-hal dari sebelumnya. Sebagian dicegah di Elmer Gantry. Jim Lefferts bersikap sinis dan tajam, tentu saja, tapi juga pria yang bersikap adil terhadap Gantry setelah aib dan jatuhnya dia. Di akhir hari Protagonis telah benar-benar menyerah pada Tuhan setelah keluarganya dibunuh oleh mafia. Diakui, dia mendapat alasan sedikit lebih baik untuk berkonversi dari satu hal baik yang terjadi, melihat bagaimana Setan berhenti di samping apartemennya untuk mengobrol. Cecil B. DeMilles Gadis Tak berujung. Dr. Ellie Arroway, protagonis Contact. Sebenarnya sangat eksplisit sebagai agnostik, tapi dia sesuai dengan pola perilaku yang khas dengan menjadi contoh yang layak dari jenis saudara yang meninggal.

Terbalik dengan pahlawan Dracula Telah Bangkit dari Makam. Yang kebetulan menjadi atheis, tanpa masa lalu yang tragis. Akhirnya dia akhirnya bertobat karena dia melihat Dracula ditolak oleh sebuah salib dan ini memberinya alasan untuk percaya kepada Tuhan. E.K. Hornbeck (berbasis longgar pada H.L Mencken) di Inherit the Wind. Meskipun film karikatur True Believers bahkan lebih, Hornbeck (orang yang sama sekali tidak percaya) ditampilkan sebagai orang yang benar-benar sinis dan bodoh. Hornbeck: Ah, Henry Mengapa kamu tidak terbangun Darwin salah? Mans masih seekor kera. Kekristenannya masih merupakan tiang totem. Ketika dia pertama kali mencapai posisi tegak lurus, dia melihat bintang-bintang - mengira mereka adalah sesuatu untuk dimakan. Ketika dia tidak bisa mencapainya, dia memutuskan bahwa mereka adalah belanjaan milik makhluk yang lebih besar. Dan begitulah cara Yehuwa lahir. Drummond: Saya berharap bisa melihat sejarah cacing-matamu. Nicky from Parting Glance yang hidup dengan AIDS, meskipun untuk film-film itu tidak pernah benar-benar diberitahu bahwa penyakitnya dan kurangnya agamanya terhubung. Ya, saya harap Anda tidak ada, tapi jika Anda melakukannya, Anda membuat saya kesal Dr. Matheson . Salah satu karakter utama di Red Lights. Rupanya menjadi seorang atheis (dan mulai skeptis menyelidiki dugaan fenomena paranormal) saat anaknya jatuh koma. Starship Troopers 3: Perampok punya banyak kesenangan dengan tema ini. Federasi fasis menganggap agama berpotensi subversif. Pahlawan wanita, Kapten Lola Beck, mencerminkan pandangan ini dan merubuhkan keras pada rekan prajurit Holly Littles Kristen. Dia bahkan mempertanyakan kewarasan atasannya, Sky Marshall Anoke, saat dia juga mengaku percaya pada Tuhan. Beck berubah pikiran ketika, setelah menghadapi kematian yang segera terjadi dari raksasa raksasa Vagina Dentata (God Anoke benar-benar mengacu pada), sejumlah malaikat berapi-api (sebuah tim yang dijatuhkan jarak jauh. Bantuan mereka dalam menanggapi doa mereka. Demikian juga Federasi terkesan pada bagaimana Sky Marshall Anoke mematuhi perintah dewa asing tanpa pertanyaan, dan memutuskan pasti ada sesuatu untuk hal-hal agama ini.

Meski menjadi seorang Katolik sendiri, memberikan keengganan dalam film terakhirnya, 7 Women. Tempat Anne Bancroft, seorang dokter atheis yang bekerja dalam misi religius, akhirnya melakukan Pengorbanan Heroik. Film ini membuat karakter religius sangat tidak simpatik sementara Anne Bancroft dipresentasikan sebagai John Waynes Distaff Counterpart. Dalam film tersebut, sementara karakter atheismenya tersirat dan dinyatakan, dia cukup baik hati (jika beralkohol) tentang hal itu dan sepertinya tidak mengalami trauma. John Ford menjelaskannya dengan sederhana: John Ford. Dia adalah seorang dokter yang menjadi objek dalam hidup adalah menyelamatkan orang. Dia adalah seorang wanita yang tidak beragama, tapi dia masuk dengan sekumpulan kook ini dan mulai bertingkah seperti manusia. Pencari memiliki ini dengan Ethan Edwards, yang mungkin seorang pria religius sekali tapi sekarang memburuk, membuat referensi merendahkan merenungkan agama dan mengolok-olok para imam dengan menggambarkan kekristenan seperti yang Anda khotbahkan menunjukkan bahwa dia sendiri bukan orang Kristen lagi. Alasan Edwards untuk atheisme-nya mungkin adalah kehilangan orang-orang yang dicintainya, waktunya sebagai tentara Konfederasi dan Jenderal Jerk Ass. Tokoh utama The Reaping adalah seorang profesor perguruan tinggi yang melakukan perjalanan dunia untuk menghancurkan mukjizat. Namun, akhirnya terungkap dia adalah mantan menteri yang kehilangan kepercayaannya saat, saat melakukan pekerjaan misionaris di Sudan, penduduk setempat menyalahkan dia berkhotbah untuk kekeringan selama setahun dan mengorbankan suami dan anak perempuannya untuk dewa mereka. Di akhir film, hari itu ternyata berhasil diselamatkan dan dia mendapatkan kembali keyakinannya hanya untuk menyadari bahwa sebelumnya dalam film tersebut dia dibius dan diperkosa oleh BigBad dan sekarang hamil dengan Antikristus. Slade Craven, karakter utama turbulensi 3: Heavy Metal dan Marilyn Manson expy. Tidak pernah dinyatakan sebagai satanis, tapi telah menyiratkan ateisme. Di akhir film, setelah menempuh jarak yang luar biasa hanya dengan kemampuannya sendiri, dia harus beralih ke agama Kristen, di sebuah Atheis No di Foxholes beberapa saat sebelum dia bisa menyelesaikan plot tersebut. John Koestler, protagonis dari Knowing. Telah kehilangan kepercayaannya setelah istrinya meninggal dalam kebakaran hotel. Dia membuat orang percaya lagi oleh kiamat, meskipun ia melihat malaikat itu pergi tanpa dia. Leacuteon Morin, precirctre 8212 Kisah pertobatan seorang militan komunis. Orang Suci dan Prajurit. Petugas medis, seorang atheis, digambarkan pahit, egois, dan sangat ingin membunuh Nazi dalam situasi apapun. Sebaliknya, penembak jitu, seorang Kristen dari sekte yang tidak ditentukan (tapi mungkin seorang Mormon) adalah penyayang, bahkan untuk Sasaran yang Dapat Diterima seperti tentara Jerman di Reich Ketiga. Wajar saja, ateis yang pahit bertobat dalam rentang waktu satu setengah jam, dan orang Kristen yang kudus menyerahkan hidupnya untuk rekan-rekannya. Di Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter. Seorang mesias berburu vampir datang ke dalam kontak dengan sekelompok ateis yang segera mencoba untuk membunuhnya. Contohnya cukup stereotip dengan karakter Jack Nicholson dalam The Bucket List. Dia pahit, sinis, sangat tidak menyenangkan bagi kebanyakan orang yang berinteraksi dengannya, dan mengklaim iri pada orang-orang yang beriman bahkan jika dia tidak mengerti apa masalahnya. Di Bergmans Fanny dan Alexander. Judul anak-anak bertahan banyak: ayah mereka meninggal, dan ibu mereka menikahi Uskup Vergerus yang kaku. Meninggalkan kehidupan nyaman yang mereka kenal dengan keluarga makmur mereka, mereka pindah ke rumah Uskup yang keras (seperti penjara bawah tanah, dengan jeruji di jendelanya), dan menyerahkan semua harta milik mereka. Pembela Alexanders menakut-nakuti Vergerus, yang mengganggunya secara brutal (mungkin penjelasan imajinatif anak laki-laki untuk kematian istri pertama Uskup bukanlah sebuah fiksi yang keterlaluan). Setelah pelarian ajaib, tapi keamanan anak-anak tidak pasti, tidak secara permanen82Alexander merenung, Jika ada tuhan, maka dia sial, dan Id ingin menendangnya di pantat. Sementara yang tidak dibuat secara eksplisit dalam Quills bahwa Marquis de Sade adalah seorang ateis daripada seorang kafir yang menentang garis lurus seperti yang diyakini oleh sebagian besar karakter, dia memang membuat beberapa komentar Hollywood Atheist. Ini termasuk dia menyebutkan kepada Abbe bahwa dia telah berada di neraka, selama pertempurannya di Perang Napoleon, sedangkan Abbe hanya membacanya. Juga: Mengapa saya harus mencintai Tuhan Dia mengikat anaknya seperti sisi sapi. Aku bergidik memikirkan apa yang dilakukan rencanaku. Ini sangat lucu jika Anda tahu sesuatu tentang De Sade, karena tokoh utama novelnya seringkali adalah pembunuh berantai pemerkosa, di antaranya adalah korbannya sendiri yang menjadi anak-anak mereka sendiri. Pikiran bahwa Tuhan akan menyiksa anaknya dengan demikian kemungkinan akan memperoleh pertanggungjawaban, ada beberapa tanggapan yang baik dalam setiap orang. Di film The Rite. Tokoh utamanya adalah pendeta yang sebenarnya tidak percaya pada Tuhan (dia bergabung dengan seminari untuk mendapatkan gelar sarjana gratis). Bahkan setelah dia melihat seorang gadis yang dimiliki oleh setan yang berbicara dalam bahasa lidah, membuat tubuhnya menjadi tidak mungkin berada, dan suaranya berubah total, bersamaan dengan muntahnya kuku yang biasa menyalibkan Yesus. Dia masih mengklaim itu hanya tipuan untuk menutupi dia dianiaya. Bethany, dalam film Dogma cukup banyak jenis pertama karena tidak subur dan perceraian yang dihasilkan. Pada akhirnya, dia mendapatkan bukti yang lebih konkret daripada kebanyakan atheis Hollywood. Ichabod Crane in Sleepy Hollow adalah contoh jenis pertama, karena ayahnya membunuh ibu Cranes dengan menutupnya menjadi gadis besi karena tampaknya mempraktikkan beberapa cara paganisme. Dalam pandangan kedua Seorang remaja Kristen tidak puas dengan hidupnya dan berharap dia bukan seorang mukmin. Kemudian seorang malaikat menampakkan diri untuk mengantarnya melewati satu hari dalam hidupnya jika dia tidak menjadi seorang mukmin. From the ensuing day, we learn that atheists would never bother to stop classmates from beating each other in the hospital, dont mind if their classmates kill themselves, are sloppy housekeepers, cheat on their dream girl, and dont pray for their parents marriage, causing them to divorce (though frankly, the parents didnt look particularly happy when they were still together). The Christian film The Atheist is about an atheist man taken on a trip by Jesus to examine the issue of faith. Apparently all atheists are rampant sinners who do just about everything a Christian would think of as wrong. Subverted in Pitch Black . The imam thinks that Riddick is one of these. Riddick is in fact a Nay-Theist misotheist - one who believes in God, and hates Him.Riddick: Think someone could spend half their life in a slam with a horse bit in their mouth and not believe Think he could start out in some liquor store trash bin with an umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and not believe Got it all wrong, holy man. I absolutely believe in God. and I absolutely hate the fucker. Averted in The Ides of March . George Clooneys character is openly non-religious and states he cannot know if God or an afterlife exist, but also acts non-bitter, is entirely respectful of others belief and states in the film that even if he doesnt share your religion, hed fight to the death for your right to hold it. In Cargo 200 . Artyom, professor of scientific atheism, is both this and a straw Marxist philosopher. When he has a discussion with a believing peasant, who himself is a self-taught philosopher, he doesnt have anything to say except stupid cliches of Marxist-Leninist philosophy. As a human being, he is a despicable coward, who knows the truth of the murder and kidnapping the plot revolves around, but doesnt say anything, even knowing that an innocent man is going to be framed and executed for these crimes, because he doesnt want to be involved with the police. He doesnt change his mind even when the mother of said man begs him to testify. In the end, he has a Heel Realization and undergoes a HeelFaith Turn. In 7th Heaven . Chico says that hes an atheist because he donated at the church and prayed to get promoted, and donated at the church and prayed for a girlfriend, and neither happened, so God owes me ten dollars. He later gets religion after finding love with Diane. The filmmakers of The Ledge deliberately wanted to avert this trope for the protagonist, who is an openly atheist man that didnt come to his lack of belief due to trauma, leads a fairly happy life and doesnt convert in the end. Unfortunately, the hero becomes unsympathetic for other reasons. In The Matrix Reloaded . Captain Morpheus is being dressed down for convincing one of the ship captains to remain and wait for word from the Oracle. When Commander Locke tells him that he (Locke) doesnt believe in Morpheuss faith, Morpheus states that his belief doesnt require that you do. Gestapo investigator Robert Mohr from the German film Sophie Scholl is a spineless legalist who toes the party line, in contrast to his prisoner Sophie, an idealistic. devout Lutheran who believes in the equality and value of every human life, and who claims that the German people really want peace, compassion, and God, a position Mohr finds incomprehensible. An odd example of version 9 and 11 appear in The Day After Tomorrow when a minor character is asked why hes clutching a Gutenberg Bible, smugly protesting that he doesnt believe in God. Odd because hes given this treatment in spite of protecting the book for its historical value, religious or not. Gods Not Dead has a devout Christian, Josh, clashing with his aggressively atheist philosophy professor Radisson. The professor declares all his students must sign a statement that God Is Dead, or fail his class. Josh wont do this, so Radisson informs him he must therefore argue the statements antithesis. It becomes apparent the professor is more interested in proving himself superior than actual debate, and Joshs main arguments center around the fact Radisson actually hates God (due to his mother dying of cancer ). Interestingly enough, the film seems to be trying for a reconstruction of this trope: Raddison himself tries to use the story of his mother to justify himself to Josh when the two of them are alone, by noting that many of the greatest atheists were once Christians. The left-wing blogger, Amy, who is snarky regarding religion until she gets cancer and at the end asks to know God. Amys boyfriend is an atheist who admits he has no morals and gloats about his perfect life. A rather strange aversion occurs in Ben amp Arthur . As the films shows, protagonist Arthur Sailes fits most of the usual criteria for a Hollywood Atheist, except that his positions are obviously those the filmmaker himself, Sam Mraovich (who converted to Mormonism several years after the films release) had at the time. In Calvary . it becomes clear that the local townsfolk do not live virtuous lives and see Father James, their community priest, as a rather unnecessary relic of a bygone age. The only self-admitted atheist is the Dr. Jerk. Harte, who constantly brings up his atheism and has an extremely cynical outlook on life. 6 Souls has an improbably high number of characters as this, including a little girl. Justified when it is revealed that the villain is cursed to eternally hunt exactly this kind of person and absorb their souls into his body. Averted in Hot Fuzz with protagonist Nicholas Angel, who says hes open to religion, though not entirely convinced in a brief conversation with the town vicar (leading the vicar to label him agnostic instead), and is the most morally upright person shown, to the point of following every rule to the letter. The Soloist . Steve seems to have this view of them. Early on in the film, he attempts interviewing an atheist charity group, and one of his lines is So do you non-gather in your non-worship The film itself doesnt agree with him on that issue however. Black Death . Hob, (and possibly the other villagers) who declares there is no God, heaven or hell. His work is performing human sacrifices of Christians that refuse to give up their faith (though those who do are still killed out of view ). Langiva may be one too, as Hob is her follower, although her speech is more ambiguous between this and denouncing God as evil. Invoked in The Contender with Vice Presidential nominee Laine Hanson during her confirmation hearing, as shes openly atheist. One of the House committee members snarkily says she sworn to tell the truth so help me God, invoking a deity that she doesnt believe in and mentions that she said religion was a fairy tale in the past. The chairman, whos out to get her, surprisingly lets it go after confirming shell tell the truth under penalty of perjury, shifting the focus to an alleged sex tape of her during a college orgy instead. Being an open atheist, let alone one who had also insulted religion, would almost certainly be a death sentence for any nominees Real Life chances, however, as many Americans (and especially Republican politicians like those she faces) believe this trope to be true, so its somewhat zigzagged by them appearing to not care about it. Do You Believe . Dr. Farell and his wife, Andrea. He is a jerkass doctor with little concern for human life and is hostile towards religious people, she is a lawyer with a strong dislike for religion. Gods Not Dead 2 . Atheists are portrayed as just God-hating monsters who want to destroy Christianity For the Evulz. In this movie, they are an organization with the government backing them in their evil plot. One of the first lines in the movie claims that Atheists have no hope, and shows atheist parents getting rid of items that belonged to their now deceased son without any emotion to it, the film outright stating that atheists dont care about anything and just hate Christians. Martins father hits his son and disowns him for being a Christian. Seems like they couldnt use that same scenario with Muslims again as in the last film. The film indirectly states that the end goal for atheism is to essentially lead an all-out genocide against Christians, and Grace being found guilty is the start of that goal. Rampage. Capital Punishment . Bill, a sociopathic mass murderer, declares there is no God and views religions as just one among many scams, with death being the end. White in The Sunset Limited is a depressed, suicidal atheist who thinks life is meaningless due to it ending in death. He hates people generally and religion in particular. Spartacus . Gracchus states that privately he believes in none of the gods, but realistically when in public of course he believes in all of them. He is not portrayed as worse for this, and in fact comes off better than most of the politicians by the end. If Footmen Tire You What Will Horses Do . The communists, naturally. Torturing and killing Christians seems to be their sole activity. Deconstructing Harry . Mostly played for laughs, of the smug variety. Doctor Strange . Strange dips into this trope during his conversation with The Ancient One by describing humanity as a series of chemical processes on a floating globe in a cold, uncaring universe while shes trying to convince him magic exists. The Big Bad later echoes this view of the world later just to rub it in. The Rapture . Zigzagged. Randy is initially an atheist who defends his hedonistic swinger lifestyle by saying its a biological imperative for humans to have sex. Then he converts to evangelical Christianity almost effortlessly when Sharon tells him about the idea. Later, we meet Foster, who says hes been an atheist all of his life but is a normal, morally upright man who converts after seeing really good evidence. In this article and a few others, (religious) columnist Damon Linker calls this type of atheism honest atheism, and is of the opinion that atheism is incompatible with happiness and optimism, and that atheists who exhibit said qualities (i.e. are not Hollywood Atheists) do so inconsistently with their worldview. As one could imagine, many were quick to disagree. Fyodor Dostoevsky s magnum opus The Brothers Karamazov has two of these: Ivan Karamazov, the middle brother, and Pavel Smyerdyakov, the lackey of the family. Ivan gave us the famous line If God does not exist, then everything is permitted and spends most of his page time attempting to break his devout brother Alyosa. However, Ivan also makes some very poignant arguments against Christianity based on the Problem of Evil (i. e. how can an all-good, all-powerful God exist with so much evil in the world), which the author attempts to counter with the story of an exemplary monk. Of the two major atheist characters in Dan Brown s Angels and Demons (a book exploring the concept of conflict between science and religion), one is a bitter, resentful scientist who became crippled as a result of his religious fanatic parents denying him treatment that could have prevented it, who has no sense of wonder regarding nature. the other is a brutal assassin. The former is a borderline case of research failure because a sense of wonder regarding nature is one reason many (if not most) scientists choose the career. However, to balance things out the real Big Bad is the apparently progressive camerlengo who turns out to be a crazed Knight Templar who murdered the Pope when he discovered the Pope had fathered a child. He orchestrated the entire plot with the objective of discrediting science, restoring the worlds faith in religion and setting himself up as the new PopeMessiah. It partially works, too. The Da Vinci Code inverts the above in that the Big Bad is really an atheist who is manipulating a Knight Templar. although The Movie removes the sympathetic aspect and makes the religious antagonists part of an Ancient Conspiracy. Sophie herself is an atheist as well. The Stormlight Archive . Quickly subverted in the first book of the series ( The Way of Kings ): POV character Shallan expects Jasnah, a famous atheist scholar shes seeking out an apprenticeship under, will be this, but while Jasnahs a bit of an Insufferable Genius. she turns out to be overall a likable, charismatic person and one of the smartest people in the novel. Jasnah is always respectful of Shallans religious beliefs, though she will occasionally roll her eyes at the more ridiculous things. Jasnahs uncle Dalinar (who is himself devoutly religious) respects her greatly, partly because she chose to be honest and explain her lack of belief rather than pretending for the sake of appearances. One of Jasnahs most precious possessions is a book that a religious scholar used to almost successfully convert her. One of her biggest Pet the Dog moments is when she gives it to Shallan following an apparent suicide attempt. When Shallan tells an ardent that Jasnah is researching the Voidbringers (ancient demons assumed to be myths at best), he assumes Jasnah is trying to disprove their existence, and thus disprove religion as a whole. Jasnah scoffs at this, saying that trying to prove a negative is a fools errand, and destroying religion wouldnt really improve the world at all even if she could do it. Jasnah: Let the Vorin believe as they wish8212the wise among them will find goodness and solace in their faith the fools would be fools no matter what they believed. At the end of the book, its revealed that the setting does . in fact, have a god, but hes dead. In Dean Koontz s Frankenstein series, we are regularly informed that since Victor Frankenstein doesnt believe in any god, this means he has no reason to follow any moral code. Victors lack of morals are also based after his own arrogance and belief that he is the pinnacle of human potential. Interestingly Koontz himself was at one point in his life an atheist and wrote a few sci-fi stories dealing with characters attempting to find and kill a God, who is evil. Koontz also wrote a short story called Twilight of the Dawn . told in the first person perspective of a staunch atheist who has a Freudian Excuse stemming from his abusive fundamentalist parents. The man becomes a Fantasy-Forbidding Father determined to raise his son, Benny, with secular and rational views, but ends up taking it a bit too far, which his wife Ellen (an agnostic) calls him out on as being no better than his own parents treatment of him. When Ellen dies, Benny starts praying as a way to cope, much to the fathers frustration. Then Benny gets cancer but still never gives up on his own beliefs. The father afterwards has to come to terms with and ultimately understand where Benny came from. Flannery OConnor. The Misfit, from short story A Good Man is Hard to Find, is practically the archetypal dangerous, nihilistic atheist. He decided at an early age that if Jesus never died on the cross, then theres no reason to do anything at all but enjoy himself the only way he knew how: killing. The story may have been a reaction to the rise of existentialism in literature. Good Country People features the protagonist as a grumpy atheist, who mainly does it solely to annoy people. attempting to convert (read: seduce, then crush his beliefs) a seemingly wholesome Southern boy whos got the fire of Jesus in him, selling Bibles for a living. It turns out the Southern boy is much, much more atheistic than her, and is a nihilist who steals disabled peoples prosthetics For the Evulz. Like the protagonists fake leg. Another one of her stories, The Lame Shall Enter First features a more positive, humanistic atheist faced with a cloven-footed character who claims to be a Satanist. The Satanist comes across as the wiser of the two: at least he knows how the battle lines are drawn. Another (kind of) positive portrayal of an atheist (sort of) is the title character from Parkers Back . although hes more agnostic - being vaguely spiritual but not believing in gods and basically treating tattoos as his religion. Hes married to a shrewish hateful Christian woman who hates things that arent Christian and if she hates something it isnt Christian. Also, she falls into heresy. It isnt clear if its Arianism-denying that Jesus is fully God-or Docetism-denying that He is fully human, but one or the other. The novel The Last Templar features a character who vowed to destroy Christianity after taking the advice of a priest to not abort his wifes high risk pregnancy, resulting in his wife and unborn childs death. Just to really show he means business, he sets fire to the church with the priest still inside shortly afterwards. The one-act play Deus X plays around with this trope. It concerns a neuroscientist who wonders why he grew up to be an atheist while his brother grew up to be a televangelist. He eventually discovers that religious faith is caused by a gland in peoples brains, and develops a drug that eliminates said gland. Although this turns the devout into wanton sex maniacs and the kind of conscienceless people that atheists are often stereotyped as, it is portrayed as unequivocally a good thing, and the play ends with the doctor character encouraging the audience to take a handful of the pills when they leave. Charles and Emma: The Darwins Leap of Faith exists partly to explore this trope. Adam Hauptman of the Mercy Thompson series became an atheist after witnessing the horrors of the Vietnam War and simultaneously surviving a werewolf attack. Hes bitter about his memories of dying in the jungle, waiting for God to save him and his comrades. Though it seems his bitterness is more towards his own naivete, he also mocks Mercy for her belief. Mercy herself is shocked that anyone could remain an atheist after witnessing the power of Christian symbols to repel vampires and other evil beings. In the Endworld novels, the Doktor is a prominent example. His devout atheism is due entirely to his parents being killed in a car crash before the war. The dwarfs in The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis stand in for atheists (and possibly Communists). Trumpkin, one of the good red dwarfs, helps the good guys in Prince Caspian but denies the existence of Aslan, even when Aslan is standing in front of him (which is how some Christians view atheists as behaving) until Aslan roars in his face. The bad black dwarfs in The Last Battle . meanwhile, reject Aslan and are doomed to wallow in their own mortality. Lewiss fiction for adults is actually a bit more subtle than that there are quite a few examples of this type, but then theres at least one of the True Companions who remains a defiant atheist to the end. Mackenzie Calhoun from Star Trek: New Frontier . who lost his faith in the Xenexian gods after a woman he loved was particularly brutally murdered. In the 1632 series, there are several characters who are non-practicing or casual or inattentive when it comes to religion, but even then they all have some sense of religion about them and theyre generally all nice people. The only character to be flat-out labeled an atheist so far in the series is an actively rude, cynical Jerkass who thinks religious people are all ignorant cretins and doesnt ever hesitate to let them know his opinions about them. Bernie Zeppi is a typical Nay-Theist. He claims to be certain God exists (I was transported half-way across the world and 350 years into the past, and what other than God could do that) but less certain that God is good or deserving of worship (The same God that brought me here took my mother here, away from the medicines she needed, and my sanity away, after The Battle of the Crapper). Either way, Bernie is a good, if directionless, man, and becomes a champion for Russias poor, sick and downtrodden when confronted with their suffering. Averted in the Eragon series. The Elves do not believe in or worship gods. Their reason is simply that there is no evidence for them existing and have fun arguing with Dwarves on the matter (who devoutly believe in their god-and might also be right that he exists). In Neal Stephenson s Cryptonomicon . Doug Shaftoe says on finding a sunken submarine, If anyone was still alive in the bubble, they died a long, slow death. May God have mercy on their souls. Randy Waterhouse surmises that an atheist, confronted with the same situation, would have nothing to say but Yes, the organisms inhabiting that submarine must have lost their higher neural functions over a prolonged period of time and eventually turned into pieces of rotten meat. So what In R.U.R. . Rossum created artificial humans because he was a materialist, and wanted to prove that God is not needed for the creation of man. Stannis Baratheon of A Song of Ice and Fire says that he gave up belief in the Seven ever since his parents drowned. Although he takes part in the religion of Rhllor, its stated that he only does so for the power that Melisandre promises him. In In the Realms of the Unreal by Henry Darger. the militantly atheist Glandelinians are motivated to wage war against Angelinia due to a seething hatred of Christianity (and little girls ). In the Discworld novel Small Gods . Sergeant Simony despises and disbelieves in Om with a fury that is rather impressive, unlike the rest of the Omnians, who have quietly ceased to believe while still claiming they do. Om himself actually likes Simony, whose passion is almost as good as belief. By the end of the novel Simony has actually met Om and becomes more of a Naytheist. Dont think you can fool me by existing. Pulvis et umbra sumus. For those who dont read Horace, that means we are dust and shadows, pretty much said by Will Herondale in The Infernal Devices to be what he believes in. Babylon Rising . Methuselah. He mocks Michaels faith every chance he gets, yet he leads Michael to evidence of the Bibles truth. Revival . Reverend Charles Jacobs who, after losing his wife and son in a horrific accident, gives one final sermon lambasting the belief in a higher power before being shunned from town. All atheist characters in the Marquis de Sade s novels despise religion (some while being clergy members themselves ), are uniformly sexual sadistsserial killers, and feel that individuals should be allowed to do whatever they desire, murder and rape included, because its natural for them. This reflects De Sades own view of things. and he himself was imprisoned and committed to an insane asylum for the sexual abuse of prostitutes and his own servants, along with writing the aforementioned books. Hellborn had Batik, who describes his stance on religion as no, but still manages to be the sanest, happiest and most emotionally stable character in the book. Not bad for an author who has never been shy about his own Christian beliefs. Discussed in Triggers . where the US President is a closet atheist. Following numerous terrorist attacks in the US, culminating with his own near-assassination, he decides to destroy Pakistan with nuclear missiles for harboring terrorists. An old woman finds out about his nonbelief and this plan, trying to convince him that doing so will not only cause him to be viewed as a monster, but later people would say only an atheist could have done such a terrible thing (he had planned to admit his atheism after leaving the White House). Also averted by Caitlin and her dad in his earlier WWWTrilogy . Both are simply nice, ordinary people. Author Robert J. Sawyer is himself an atheist, and thus averts this in his works. Knowledge Of Angels . Discussed. Palinor does not fit the stereotypes, surprising the Christian characters, who believe an atheist has no reason to be moral. Arc Of Fire . Averted. Myrrens doubts about Vraxor finally culminate in her disbelief that he exists, along with the other gods. The series itself has revealed shes wrong, as Vraxor and Nimrod appeared at the start of Dark Heart . while Shial personally has encountered Shayna, though Myrren doesnt know this. Vraxors holy book however may well be wrong, as she argues. Vraxor and Nimrod having both been gone for a very long time doesnt help to show that they exist of course. The author is himself an atheist activist, and thus explores this with more nuance than most, rather than just the usual negative stereotypes. All in the Family . Mike Stivic is agnostic, and is frequently belittled for his beliefs by his father-in-law, Archie Bunker, who-though rarely going to church himself, despite claiming he is a devout Christian-confuses Mikes beliefs for outright atheism. Indeed, in the pilot episode Mike declares there is no scientific proof of Gods existence, although his actual beliefs in several episodes later in the series reveal he is more agnostic (this view would also be compatible with agnostic atheism). The perfect case in point was Ediths Crisis of Faith, where Edith renounces her deep Christian faith after witnessing a deadly robbery Mike helps her reaffirm her faith by saying God would not want such a horrible thing to happen. Interestingly, Mike also loved Christmas, since the time celebrated the birth of Jesus, to him a kind, wise and benevolent philosopher, while viewing the idea he was the son of God as ridiculous. Good Times . Toward the end of the series fourth season (1976-1977), Michael becomes friends with a strong atheist named Carl Dixon (Moses Gunn), something that irritates Florida. Ironically, by the season finale, Florida and Carl are wed and move to Arizona as a way to explain Esther Rolles departure from the series (due to her extreme dissatisfaction with the series turn). Rolle also criticized the way she was being axed off-a devout Christian (Florida) marrying a hardcore atheist (Carl)-and when she returned to the show a year later, the producers agreed to her wish that Carl be retconned from the show. Blossom . Although no episode focused on religion, the Russo familys lack of religion does make it into several scripts. In one episode, where Nick is dating Sharon Lemure, he remarks that-after noting all the historical conflicts based on religion-only atheists seem to be truly happy and at peace. Lindsay Weir from Freaks and Geeks is an atheist simply because in her view there is no rational reason to believe in god(s), though her atheism is also explained in the first episode as a reaction to seeing her grandmother die and hearing her say how there was no light and she was alone. Jane Christie from the Britcom Coupling . In one episode she goes to a Christian group and says, Andrew, lovely Well, Andrew, theres something I probably better explain. God is just a made up person. You cant expect Him to be answering your prayers if Hes not real, can you Thats a bit like writing to the characters of a soap opera and expecting a reply, Mr. Silly Sausage. After being told that the group believes in one true god, she then goes on to state that they should have checked that they have different Gods in different countries. She then wonders if the various Gods are like MPs note for American readers this refers to a member of parliament, similar to Congressman that they have a different God for each area, commenting that Thor would be the best head God, due to being a muscular blond who can control the weather. The 2000s Battlestar Galactica features prominent atheist characters, all different. Admiral Adama, a humanist who views mankind as flawed but inherently good, and ultimately accountable to nobody but themselves for their mistakes in life. While Adama explicitly states a few times that hes an atheist, he sees no problem with using humanitys faith as a rallying cry (such as in the infamous So say we all scene) and accepting some of Roslins more irrational endeavors (though hes opposed to them early on and nearly topples her government over it). He comes off as more of a pragmatist - seeming to accept that faith is necessary for people to have even though he doesnt share it himself. Gaius Baltar, an egocentrist who ultimately comes to consider himself a god (or at least, a prophet). Baltar thinks of himself as an instrument of God (incidentally, the Big G hates it when you call Him that)-he was an atheist, but begins to believe there is something in Hand of God- with the apt final shot of the episode. The Cylon Brother CavilNumber One Model, the only model to reject both the Cylon god and the Lords of Kobol, and the most sadistic and genocidal Cylon model to boot. While Cavil doesnt believe in God, he has no problem with using Gods will and the divine plan to justify a grand agenda which turns out to be based on little more than petty vengeance. In a deleted scene we find out that Billy Keikeya was also an atheist, despite being Laura Roslins aide and most devoted supporter. By then Roslin was having prophetic visions and some people thought she was the messiah Billy didnt believe in the gods, but he believed in Roslin. Though both scenes which were shot featuring Billy explicitly confessing his atheism to Roslin were deleted, you can still pick it up by observing his actions through the show (its easier to see it once youve been told Billy is an atheist). Its mostly non-verbal-you see him sort of staring down and looking a little ashamed whenever Roslin rambles about Pythia, and in a couple of his scenes with Dualla, she implies her faith and he awkwardly changes the subject, his facial expression stuck somewhere between tolerance and pity. Gaetas atheism is presented matter-of-factly, if mostly by implication: he has trouble taking Roslins visions seriously, and acknowledges to Adama at one point that he is not a man to look for religious explanations of natural events, however convenient those events might be. His lack of faith in any gods is not considered a problem by other characters at any point. Bones has Temperance Brennan, who argues with Seeley Booth (a strong Catholic) all the time about his faith and her lack of it. This is strong because they both make good points, and neither is instantly converted to the others viewpoint. She is probably one of the most well-treated atheists on television. She frequently states her rationale for why she doesnt believe in a God in a calm manner - unsurprising, considering shes an anthropologist above all else - and nothing has ever been made of her being wrong. She and her Catholic FBI partner get into frequent arguments over her atheism, but over the seasons, hes come to tease her affectionately over it. The arguments usually arent over Brennans atheism, though. Theyre usually started because shell occasionally come close to picking a fight with him over some aspect of his belief. This stands in contrast to how shes shown to not only be knowledgeable but openly respectful of pretty much every religion but the Jesus-as-savior ones. She tones it down later as she seems to realize shes antagonizing Booth for no particular reason, and its entirely possible theres a Freudian Excuse for why she has issues with Catholicism. In early episodes, it is clear that Brennan chafes at the idea of faith as being in opposition to reason. Over the years she herself starts demonstrating faith, specifically in her partnership with Booth. This character development came to a head in the 8th season finale The Secret in the Siege. After Brennan proposed to Booth, and he subsequently broke off their engagement (in response to serial killer Pelants Sadistic Choice ), Booth and Brennans relationship seemed to be in serious trouble. At the end of the 9th season premiere The Secret In the Proposal, Brennan assured Booth that she still had absolute faith in him and believed that he would make things right between them. Dexter Morgan from the Showtime series Dexter . a vigilante serial killer traumatized as a child by witnessing the murder of his mother. In Darkly Dreaming Dexter . the novel on which the show is based, his brother Brian is also an atheist for the same reason, though it is also implied (at least in the Showtime series) that, rather than actively disbelieving in a god, Dexter simply has no use for religionthe concept of a god (this is sometimes called apatheism). In a later season he starts to explore the idea more after pursuing a serial killer whose inspiration is the Book of Revelation, becoming impressed by a reformed murderer-turned-minister called Brother Sam, but still never fully becomes religious that we see. Patrick Jane from The Mentalist fits the description to a tee. His wife and daughter were murdered and he will mock religious beliefs or any belief in the supernatural, although he may have been an atheist before since he was a secretly fake psychic before the murders. In fact, this is what got his family killed after he did a fake reading of a serial killer, so it explains his hostility to such beliefs. And when another psychic successfully guesses a few things and tells him about the murders, he breaks down defeated and crying. One of the few times he openly wavers on the issue is the episode that ends with Jane and his brother visiting Janes wifes grave. His brother asks if he thinks she can see them. After a long moment, Jane whispers very softly, Maybe. His own mind calls him out on this in Devils Cherry . in the shape of his daughter, Charlotte Anne Jane. Jane . Im doing this for you . Charlotte : Were dead. We dont care. Inverted in Moonlighting . The snarky, somewhat dark, cynic David is a devout believer in God, while his life-affirming, successful partner from a good, loving family, Maddie, is an atheist. House . The title character is an utterly cynical curmudgeon, Straw Nihilist atheist as well as a bitter drug addict. Dr. House is actually a more benevolent example than most. In a few more reflective moments. he explains that in the absence of definitive proof one way or another, a belief for or against God is ultimately a choice between what gives more comfort. He simply finds it more comforting to think that existence isnt a test. His subordinate Doctor Cameron, however, is very idealistic despite being at least nominally an agnostic (she thinks God might or might not exist, but either way she doesnt believe He takes an interest in humanity). More accurately, she believes that whether theres actually a God or not is immaterial, since humanity could never hope to understand him in any case. I think penguins may as well speculate about quantum physics, as she puts it. One episode featured a priest who called himself an atheist but really had a textbook example of God did me wrong Hollywood atheism. Seeing Jesus floating in front of him does nothing but make him check himself into the hospital for hallucinations. By the end of the episode, he had found faith again because the wrong was made right and he made peace with the person who had hurt him. Houses ex-girlfriend Stacy is also an atheist, although she wears a cross she inherited from her mother (atheists can do things for sentimental reasons, after all). Its subtly implied that her husband Mark is religious to some degree at least, while House is trying to anger Mark, he inquires about their wedding day and gets in a jab about the atheistical bride. Firefly . Mal Reynolds lost his faith in God after the events of Serenity Valley convinced him that God disagreed with him politically. He will allow a preacher on board his ship, but he prefers that he keep his religion to himself: Youre welcome aboard my ship. God aint. This is called back in The Movie. While Book never tries to get Mal to believe in God, he tries try to get him to believe in something . I dont care what you believe in, just believe . And he does eventually believe in something: his crew, and that he has to fight for whats right. There is an Alternate Character Interpretation that has Mal believing in God, and just really not liking God at all. This interpretation is shared by Nathan Fillion. the actor who played Mal. Law Order . Jack McCoy is an admitted lapsed Catholic. His disdain for religion (or for what he sees as religious hypocrisies) puts him squarely in the exists to belittle the religious category, often to the point where hes jeopardized a case just to get his shots in. In the shows defense, hes almost always called out on it. It should be noted that in one episode, McCoy fully considered himself a Catholic and suffered from religious conflict when trying to get a confession to a priest (albeit not a Catholic one) by a criminal while the criminal was in jail admitted in court. Which means McCoy may have been just given a FaithHeel Turn just for the sake of repeated anvil droppings. Detective Mike Logan falls into the same category as McCoy, plus hes given the Freudian Excuse of an abusive childhood during which he was beaten by his Bible-thumping mother and molested by a Catholic priest note Unsuccessfully, due to his having been a pretty savvy kid, but some of his friends werent so lucky. Before McCoy was brought onboard, if the show was about a religious issue, Logan would be the one to make disdainful and mocking comments about religion and spirituality in general. Law Order: Special Victims Unit . The villain of an episode, a European psychologist who tried to instill gender roles in a young sex-reassignment surgery patient through questionable techniques, claimed the religious backwardness of the protagonists American culture was why they were disgusted by his scientific progress. Its worth noting that this is based on something that actually happened (save for the doctor being a Straw European or Straw Atheist). Benson is an atheist, in marked contrast to Stabler, who is Catholic. Benson questions Stablers belief, arguing that no one could believe in God after all they see in their line of work. Subverted, however, with Nichols in Law Order: Criminal Intent . If anything, he was brought up somewhat spoiled (at one point, he attributes some of his ego issues to being praised too often as a child). He was simply raised atheist by atheist parents. Sam Tyler, the lead character of the US version of Life On Mars . is a lapsed Catholic of the Cynicism Catalyst variety: he left the church after his prayers failed to stop his father from walking out on his family (the original UK version only briefly mentioned Sams religious beliefs he described himself as, not what youd call a religious man). Although he does seem to take the faith back up for at least one episode after meetinghaving a vision of someone that might be an angelGod who lets him see the funeral of his surrogate father and takes a dead little girl to heaven. Its that kind of show. Perry Cox from Scrubs . In one episode it is revealed that his lack of religion has driven a wedge between him and his fundamentalist Christian sister. It is also revealed in that episode the reason for his atheism is that they were both abused by his father. This was contrasted to his sisters way of dealing, converting to Christianity. It was however later revealed that it was not religion that drove a wedge between him and his sister, but the fact that Cox didnt want to deal with anything from his childhood, and religion was just an excuse. He still does not particularly like religion, stating that prayer gives patients false hope. A talk with J.D. does reveal that he doesnt genuinely begrudge people for their religious beliefs. Matt Albie from Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip . As one character puts it, No one delights in tweaking the religious community nearly as much as Matt does. Fox Mulder of The X-Files is perhaps the very embodiment of this trope, which is funny as David Duchovny has stated that unless told otherwise he saw Mulder as Jewish (though this can be an ethnic rather than religious identity too). When Scully finally calls him on the hypocrisy of his believing in all sorts of supernatural phenomena while dismissing religion out of hand. he angrily tells her that he refuses to believe in a God who wouldnt save his sister. But then it turns out his sister was actually saved at the last moment by angels, or something like that. In the last scene of the shows finale, Mulder and Scully have the following exchange:Scully: Youve always said that you want to believe. But believe in what Mulder If this is the truth that youve been looking for then what is left to believe in Mulder: I want to believe that the dead are not lost to us. That they speak to us as part of something greater than us - greater than any alien force. And if you and I are powerless now, I want to believe that if we listen to whats speaking, it can give us the power to save ourselves. Scully: Then we believe the same thing. An episode of Red Dwarf features the eponymous Inquisitor, a droid which, after concluding there was no God, appointed himself judge over mortals, killing people to free up lives he feels could be better allocated to those who werent born. Interestingly, the Inquisitors duty is based on the notion that life is extremely precious, a common belief in many real atheists. This would make him a Well-Intentioned Hollywood Atheist. In Father Ted . Father Dougal McGuire is shown in a number of episodes to have no belief in God or any other aspect of the Catholic faith. At one point he discusses the matter with a bishop having a crisis of faith, who ends up resigning his post and becoming a hippie. Of course, he wasnt trying to encourage him to leave the clergy. But this is Dougal were talking about.Ted . Dougal, how exactly did you become a priest Was it a collect 10 crisp packets and become a priest promotion An episode of the Alien Nation TV series had alien George and human Matt investigating a series of murders among the binnaum . who are loosely the clergy of the Tenctonese aliens (they also play a role in Tenctonese reproduction ). Matt remarks hes a lapsed Catholic who left the church because of its hypocrisy. After the events of the episode. the final scene has him walking into a Catholic Church to attend Mass. Glee . In Grilled Cheesus with Sue and Kurt: while Kurt expresses dislike of religious institutions because of what he considers their sexist, homophobic and anti-science attitudes, the arguments he uses in his conversations with the other Gleeks about god and faith are mostly the same as those used by intellectual atheists, including Russells teapot and a brief reference to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Its also implied that his atheism is of long standing - his speech about his mothers funeral makes it clear that even as an eight-year-old he had no belief in any sort of after life. On the other hand, he does try to stop people from praying for his father when hes in the hospital. despite the fact that his father is religious and would most likely want people to pray for him. Sue, on the other hand comes off as mostly angry at God for giving her sister Down syndrome and tries to stop the students from singing about their religious beliefs - though to be fair, this is also at least partly because their insistence on doing so is causing Kurt, whose father is in a coma after a serious heart attack at this point, considerable stress. Even better, while they both make their peace with the religious (or bow to religious privilege), neither is converted by the end of the episode. Meanwhile, Finn sings a song about losing faith and the episode treated it in a very cool manner. Its still rare to find a show thats not afraid of sending the message some people lose their faith thats ok. Finns emotional distress at losing his faith in his Grilled Cheesus is not in itself made light of. Its just presented as the logical consequence of a certain rather shallow and opportunistic sort of faith being challenged. The editing of the song sequence does, however, imply that Finn thinks Kurt, as an atheist, feels the same confusion and isolation Finn is experiencing all the time - while making it clear that actually, Kurt doesnt, and that his sympathy for Finns situation is, for various reasons, not great. Community . In the Christmas episode Comparative Religion we learn that Britta is an atheist and Jeffs agnostic, but neither is particularly bitter or obnoxious about it. Both go out of their way to politely accommodate Shirleys overtly Christian holiday plans, and Shirleys actually the more obnoxious when it comes to other peoples beliefs here. As the series has progressed, however, Britta has gotten a bit more in-your-face about her atheism, especially when mixing it up with Shirley. The clash between this trope and The Fundamentalist was played with in Studies in Modern Movement. After Shirley insinuates that Britta doesnt have a moral code because of her lack of religion, Britta picks up a hitchhiker specifically to show the opposite. This backfires on Britta when the hitchhiker is himself a staunch Christian. It then backfires on Shirley when hes also a big supporter of legalizing weed, and believes himself to be Jesus. They finally come together with the reveal that hes incredibly racist and doesnt think blacks and white should mix. Oh, and he drinks human blood. On Supernatural . Dean used to be an atheist, at least until he met Castiel and other angels. And later God himself. Now his believing in God is rather pragmatic, not really motivated by faith. Supernatural is interesting in the regard that his atheism seemed only to apply to the Christian god. A couple of Monsters of the Week were, in fact, pagan gods. Granted, given how many of those pagan gods theyve killed its not hard to imagine they were just more powerful-than-usual monsters that some people used to worshipplacate. Criminal Minds Played pretty straight with Morgan8212he has a lot of pent up rage at religion due to God not rescuing him from his childhood trauma despite his prayers. However, while the character arc does end with him in church, this seems to be more a matter of making his peace with religion than actually becoming religious, as he still doesnt seem to believe in God. In terms of other characters, Rossi is Catholic, Hotch is an agnostic, Gideon has described himself as a man of (unspecified) faith, and Reid describes himself as a man of science8212though he did have a near-death-experience, and has been rather confused on the matter since then. The show itself seems to be actively agnostic 8212 not in the sense of ignoring the question, but in the sense of very deliberately bringing it up and very deliberately refusing to answer it. The Popular Kids presents the killer as a Nietzsche-quoting teenager who murdered jocks in fake Satanic rituals, blaming the deeply religious town. In particular, he framed a local Satanic (read, atheistic, heavy-metal-listening, and bitter, but not really Satanic or a killer) youth. Reid tells him that, like a lot of people, hes misinterpreted Nietzsche. CSI . Gil Grissom, apparently. When he talks with a Catholic priest he claims that all the suffering caused by religious wars and extremists turned him off religion. Meeting kind and faithful religious people doesnt seem to alter his opinion. Grissom still shows respect toward religion through the series, however he just doesnt believe in them. In the Young Hercules episode The Skeptic, Pythagoras refuses to believe in the gods, saying everything can be explained by science and logic. An annoyed Strife appears and demonstrates his powers, but Pythagoras dismisses them as magic tricks. He explains to Hercules that the reason he doesnt believe is that his father devoted his life to the gods, to the point that he spent more time at the temples instead of with his family. None of his fathers prayers were answered and Pythagoras never saw any evidence of the divine beings his father constantly preached about. At the end of the episode, Pythagoras reluctantly admits that there may be beings that seem to be gods. The Good Wife . The shows got a pretty good track record for averting this and portraying atheists as no more or less sympathetic than theists. Alicia is an open atheist but isnt shown to be a worse person for it. In fact, although her daughter Grace is a born-again Christian, these different beliefs never affect their relationship. Dear God has Alicia needing help dealing with a venue change to a Christian arbitrator rather than a courtroom, and she goes to Grace for advice on how to use the Bible as a legal document. Overall its refreshing to see it treated in this manner instead of being a damaging character flaw. This was first revealed when Eli planned to use a video of Maddie Hayward refusing to take part in a public prayer against her gubernatorial campaign (shes one of Peters opponents and Elis just doing his job as campaign manager), but she short-circuits him by telling a reporter who catches all four of them at a dinner that she felt it would be hypocritical of her to go through the motions as an atheist. Peter tells the reporter he respects that, though he doesnt agree with her. The reporter then queries Alicia, who states shes an atheist as well. Alicia herself invokes this when shes involved with a custody case against a philosophy professor. She uses the fact that he doesnt believe in an afterlife, free will or anything immaterial as evidence that he would be a worse parent to his son than the childs mother. However, the professor defends himself against her accusations ably (which seem to partly stem from the recent loss of her friend-the professors opinion that existence ends at death upsets her). It comes back to bite Alicia when shes running for States Attorney, as many people in the US believe this trope to be true. Shes advised that open atheists are unelectable. Thus, shes forced to backtrack on her admission of being one into calling herself questioning after Wills death and her daughters influence. Shes obviously very uncomfortable with this, as is Grace when her prayer group leader gives thanks for her supposedly getting through to Alicia, highlighting the very real prejudice many American atheists encounter (especially in doing things such as running for public office). Played with in Veronica Mars . After a bus driver apparently kills himself by driving his bus (full of kids) off a cliff, his last acts come under scrutiny. Specifically, when he stopped at a convenience store shortly before his end, he bought a number of things, including a cheap little Christian keychain, which he then shrugged and tossed in the trash. Everyone assumed that this was a sign he was turning his back on God, and thus planned to kill himself. When Veronica investigates, she finds that the store has a large sign proclaiming NO CHANGE (dont even ask). So he was just buying the cheapest thing he could to make change, and threw it away because it was a cheap little keychain that wasnt worth keeping. It is eventually discovered that he didnt actually kill himself there was a bomb on the bus. Though in fairness, the fact that he left a note saying he was leaving his wife for another woman, but which was vague enough to be mistaken for a suicide note, really didnt help. The Americans . Elizabeth. She reacts to Paiges joining a church youth group as if her daughter takes to drugs or prostitution. As a rule, while the average Soviets did frown upon religion, they wouldnt exactly freak out like Elizabeth either. Even Philip has to tell her to cool it a bit-shed been shown to take stereotypical Soviet values far more seriously than him already. Becker . Beckers an atheist, though it only comes up once, and naturally he fits many of the stereotypes. In The Twilight Zone episode The Obsolete Man. the Chancellor (and by extension the State) are pretty extreme examples, given that they not only declare God does not exist, but run a murderous totalitarian dictatorship which outlaws religion entirely, along with killing anyone whom they deem obsolete (people who believe in God presumably are included) especially in contrast with the saintly Christian character Wordsworth. Given this was in the Cold War era, it may have been a Take That regarding the officially atheist communist states, who persecuted religious people. and everyone else who didnt obey them. In the Masters of Horror episode Haeckels tale, the titular Haeckel, a medical student, doesnt believe in God, the soul, or the supernatural, and tries to reproduce Dr. Frankensteins experiments. This is clearly linked to his materialist view of things, which is proven entirely, horribly wrong by the end. Oh, and he shares a name with the real biologist Ernst Haeckel, the 19th century German scientist who proposed racist scientific theories and was a materialist (though not an atheist, but a pantheist-hes often mistaken for the former). In True Blood . Tara is established to be an atheist, and its heavily implied to be caused by her unstable upbringing. Sense8 . Rajans father isnt content to personally disbelieve in gods and miracles, but backed a bill to outlaw harmless religious rituals like offering fruit to Ganesha. This enrages some Hindus to the point they attempt to assassinate him. Pramface . Beth, in keeping with her overall haranguing manner, mocks her friend and his (though admittedly ill-informed ) beliefs after he becomes Christian, even replacing all of the hymnals in a church with copies of The God Delusion . Belles . a black family sitcom, has the main characters view an atheist this way. Daughter Jil brings a date home to have dinner with her family, who says hes an atheist during conversation. This is treated like the worst possible thing, explicitly more so even than being a criminal. Jack, her date, defends himself well, but to no avail. Hes actually portrayed in a positive way himself-denying any of the stereotypical reasons for disbelief, and making some good points against their bias. Its Jil and her family who buy into the trope. While her dad later says he accepts it if Jil wants to still see Jack, hes overjoyed when she says they broke up. Malibu Country . Nicely averted when June admits shes an atheist. Reba respects this, along with her desire to not attend church anymore. Orange Is the New Black . Averted. Piper is an atheist, but this isnt shown to affect her character. Lucifer (2016) . Quite un-ironically discussed when Chloe, during a conversation with Lucifer, admits to not being a Christian but insists she isnt an atheist, as she stills believes there is good and evil. Note that Chloe herself actually counts as a Flat-Earth Atheist. as she lives in a world where God is real and shes actually talking to Lucifer himself. Its implied her sheer strength of disbelief actively counters divine attributes. as shes repeatedly displayed as being immune to Lucifers inherent Charm Person properties. And at one point actually manages to wound him by shooting him, when he had previously been established as Immune to Bullets. Sleeper Cell . Bob, Fariks interrogator in Season 2, is a mild example (assuming his story is true and not an interrogation tactic to shake Farik). Raised a devout Christian as a child, Bob died for twenty minutes after a drowning accident and saw no afterlife. After that experience, he became an atheist. Farik is not swayed in the least by hearing this. Space: Above and Beyond . Wang, who stopped believing in religion after seeing the horrors of war, although he still has a tendency to cross himself before battle and when he thinks hes going to die. When Damphousse (a devout Christian) calls him on it, he claims its just superstition and habit. Game of Thrones . Averted. Ser Davos Seaworth and Thoros of Myr both believed the gods were just something made up to scare children into being good. Thoros came to believe again after his prayer raised a man from the dead. while Davos is more reluctant, though Stannis argues it would make no sense to disbelieve after what hes seen Melisandre do. Were not shown what he thinks after this. Ben Harper of My Family . judging by the worms and rot speech he gets in one Halloween episode. Hes a cynical, bitter, sarcastic man, and happens to be the viewpoint character and Only Sane Man a lot of the time. Unusually, he doesnt seem to have had a single moment that embittered him, so much as years of dealing with his unhinged wife and children - one episode has flashbacks to Ben before Nicks birth, and hes almost unnervingly chipper and upbeat.
