Hollywood's irrational atheist characters
Ever noticed that most movies that come from Hollywood always portray atheists and hopeless souls traumatized by tragedy and coping with depression?
Knowing: Nicholas Cage is a professor who lost his wife and is now an atheist and sees no purpose in life. Then he starts to see the future and regains his faith.
Signs: Mel Gibson's character loses his wife and his faith, and gains it at the end, after fighting aliens who seem to think landing on crops is the key to invading a planet.
The Reaping: agnostic woman starts to believe in God after an encounter with a Satanic cult.
The Prophecy: priest loses his faith after a traumatizing experience, but soon has to battle demons.
Do Hollywood writers believe atheism is caused by traumas or anger against God so and so? That seems to be the case.
