(something you'll learn I probably do to much of)
my favorite science fiction movie
in an interview with American Atheist, Douglas Adams says:
"I am fascinated by religion. (That’s a completely different thing from believing in it!) It has had such an incalculably huge effect on human affairs. What is it? What does it represent? Why have we invented it? How does it keep going? What will become of it? I love to keep poking and prodding at it. I’ve thought about it so much over the years that that fascination is bound to spill over into my writing."
I personally think that his atheist beliefs did spill over into his writings, especially the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. For example, there is one scene in a "church." Here watch this from 3:30-4:45...
the reason I bring up this scene is because I think Adam's disdain/curiousity for religion is shown here in this made up religion. I think he is showing how silly religious institutions can be...just a thought.
and as a final note I want you to see what the Hitchhiker's Guide has to say about God...
all from the mind of Douglas Adams
