Viridiana: A woman who wants to become a nun, gives up and does something useful with her life, after almost being raped twice. There's a mock Last Summer with homeless people that's really funny. The movie got Bunuel kicked out of Spain, because the Catholics were mad and Franco supported the church. I haven't watched Bunuel's other films (sans Belle Du Jour). Exterminating Angel sounds like it could be an "atheist" movie. He's famous for the quote, "Thank god I am an atheist."
The Wicker Man: Howie's a jerk Christian. He travels to an island in search of a little girl. He pisses on the local pagan customs. They burn him in a wicker man, while doing a Scottish jig.
Thirst- A priest becomes a vampire. There's lots of sex.
Quest for Fire= It's about cave people. Their lives sucked. They go after fire. There is cannibalism.
Crimes and Misdemeanors= A dentist kills his mistress, gets away with it. He contemplates turning himself in. Woody Allen loses Mia Farrow to a jerky Alan Alda. Woody also stuck to his principles, and he got screwed. The universe is random is basically the point of the movie, and Woody Allen thinks that sucks.
Inherit the Wind of course. We had to read and watch that one in high school.
Aguirre seems like it could be classified as an atheist movie. The conquistadors float off in to the jungle, and die.
There's a movie called Don't Torture a Duckling. It's about a priest that kills little boys so that they won't be corrupted. Not a very good movie.
Elmer Gantry is a good "atheist" book, don't know about the movie though.
I'd say Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Day of the Dead, and Night of the Living Dead were all kind of godless.
I work in healthcare in a long term care facility and I deal with death on a regular basis. About a year ago the opportunity arose for me to take a palliative care course through my work. I enjoyed it for the most part. It dealt with topics such as end of life care, pain relief and addressing the spiritual needs of different individuals based on their religious beliefs.There was one instance however that was decidedly unpleasant, and unfortunately really overshadowed the rest of my time in the…See More
"They mistake logic with internal consistency.
If you show a theist that his views are internally inconsistent, you will have some measure of success. He will make a good faith (ha!) effort at modifying his views to make them more internally…"
