Thank God I’m An Atheist is the title of a little book by Rudolph Brasch. He
said he got the title from a reported exchange between a disbeliever and a
heckler at the famous Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park in London. The
contradiction of the statement is obvious. It is as obvious as the true story
of the atheist father who was arrested for striking his son in the face with
his fist. He said, “I was trying to put the fear of God in him.” Of
course, atheism is always beset by contradictions.
