I don’t find atheists or atheism all that interesting.
Most of it is just a pose from people who demand the right to say controversial things, but have nothing controversial to say.
They are meta-rebels. These are people who talk about being rebellious and subversive, but never dare color outside the lines. Entertainers are fond of this style of edginess as it safely allows them to flatter their audience’s own egotistic need to see themselves as an avant-garde. Every modern TV comic falls into this category.
