Ricky Gervais on God. On Twitter. On Point.

Ricky Gervais is trying to set the record straight regarding religion and god.

The comedic actor and animal rights campaigner claimed believing that a god could be responsible for good things that happen even as tragedies continue to take place across the world is the ultimate form of arrogance during a Q&A session with the journalist Nicky Clark.

Listing some of the biggest misconceptions about atheism, he said: “From equating it with Satanism to subtle confusions like ‘atheism is the belief there is no God’ as opposed to ‘atheism is the lack of belief in a God.’

A clear description of Ricky’s point.

And the reality is that people do believe. A lot of crazy stuff. Humans believe. That’s what we do. And because we believe, we also feel that we are right, correct, just.

And finally, a key point. No matter what we believe or don’t believe, I agree with Ricky – let’s at least not destroy everything. Life is short. Let’s protect what we can.
