Actor and comedian Ricky Gervais is a well known and outspoken atheist. Talk show host and social commentator Stephen Colbert is a devout Christian. When Gervais appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert recently the convo turned to the existence of God.
“So you believe in one god, I assume,” Gervais stated, “but there are 3,000 to choose from…So basically, you believe in, you deny, one less god than I do. You don’t believe in 2,999 gods. And I don’t believe in just one more.”
Like many believers, I just don’t get what people don’t get. But I need to keep in mind, they don’t get what I don’t get. I find these kind of interchanges interesting if nothing less to help me understand how I might help those that don’t get it…get it.
