There have been a lot of Christian movies released lately, and there are more to come. That got me thinking: why are there no atheist movies? With the exception of The Ledge, there are really no movies aimed at atheists. I haven’t really seen any movies about any other religious/ non-religious group either. Most media aimed at atheists are in the form of documentaries, and I enjoy watching most of them, but there have to be some atheists that are more interested in entertainment than education when it comes to films. So why aren’t there really any atheist movies?
I have heard it posited that it is because bible stories are good stories in the sense that they are entertaining. Atheists don’t have any entertaining stories ready to go. So what would an entertaining atheist story look like? What would count as an atheist movie?
