Reading thru the Codex pages written by Altair that are found by Ezio in Assassin's Creed 2 it's quite obvious that Altair is an atheist based on his writings in Codex XX and Codex XXX.
I long for the day when men turn away from invisible monsters and once more embrace a more rational view of the world. But these new religions are so convenient - and promise such terrible punishment should one reject them - I worry that fear shall keep us stuck to what is surely the greatest lie ever told.
Soon I shall pass from this world. It is my time. All the hours of the day are now colored by the thoughts and fears borne of this realization. I know that the elements of my body will return to the Earth. But what of my consciousness? My identity? That is to say - what of ME? I suspect it will end. That there is no next world. Nor a return to this one. It will simply be done. Forever.
Our lives are so brief and unimportant. The cosmos cares nothing for us. For what we've done; Had we wrought evil instead of good. Had I chosen to abuse the Apple instead of seal it away. None of it would have mattered. There is no counting. No reckoning. No final judgement. There is simply silence. And darkness. Utter and absolute.
Are there any other video game characters that are obviously atheists based on their dialog, behavior, or personal writings?
Anyone here looking forward to the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood? If anyone on the 360 is getting it and wants to hook up for multiplayer feel free to add me: DeafAtheist
