What happens when an Atheist goes to heaven?
Following his closing joke on the Golden Globes, where he thanked God he was an atheist, Ricky Gervais is teaming up with Clyde Phillips, of Dexter fame, to develop a new comedy provisionally called Afterlife. It deals with a situation where an atheist dies and goes to heaven. Like the movie Ricky directed, The Invention of Lying, the idea really appeals to me. I think Atheists and Apathists alike would have a far greater chance of entering heaven than many proclaimed religious people. Sounds promising, but we will have to wait to find out how good it is. It is at a very early stage and will most likely air next year. Congratulations also to Ricky for being nominated for an Emmy for hosting the Golden Globes. Read more on his blog.
