The Devout Atheist



I'm uploading this story to Deviantart because although I like the story, I think it's unpublishable. It's basically my response to The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.

As a story I liked it. It's well written with an interesting concept I'd like to see further development on and good, believable dialogs.

As a "morality tale" it could be less obvious. While I agree with the "morals" that people need to be less stupid and as such not take their unsupported beliefs that seriously, it seems to me the reader should be the one to be getting at that conclusion not the narrator/character.

Also I would rather you had not said this story was an answer to Dawkins. While I figured you were playing a variation on Devil's Advocate, that confused me. As an atheist, I grew out of many conceptions of God while I was a kid, though I still have deistic musings. So the conciliatory bit about deeply held beliefs doesn't jell with me. As far as I know I don't have any.
