Why are atheists angry? Raised by Wolves

Raised by Wolves is a remarkable work of symbolic science fiction…for exactly 2 episodes. As soon as master storyteller Ridley Scott departs the show crashes harder than a nosediving colony vessel into absurdity. Let’s hope season 2 can do better. But in those early episodes Raised by Wolves sets up a symbolic narrative exploring the conflict of Faith vs. Atheism. And asks the important question…is atheism just another system of belief?

  1. I always have a difficult time when I read an article about theism vs atheism. Some people believe, and some people do not. Not believing isn’t a belief. It’s simply not believing. I know lots of atheists and christians and angry comes naturally to both. To suggest one over the other is manipulative.


    1. Huh? “Not believing” is an impossible thing to do! I am sorry Jerry, but I can’t “not” believe in something. I can dispute one belief with a contradictory set of beliefs, but saying you “don’t” believe something is angry, indeed. It is an emotional appeal to ignorance. Okay, so what DO you believe? If you cannot accurately express your dissent, maybe you have no merit in your argument?
