And it's true some of the actors had unnerving stories to tell during the shoot. My unfaith remains unshaken however. I need big miracles to make me believe.

* [[Jane Asher]] (1946&ndash;): English actress, who is well known in the United Kingdom for her numerous appearances in film and television dramas.<ref>"I don't believe in God. My sense of awe, wonder and utter insignificance comes from reading the New Scientist, rather than the Bible."

* [[Kevin Bacon]] (1958&ndash;): American film and theatre actor whose notable roles include ''[[National Lampoon's Animal House|Animal House]]'', ''[[A Few Good Men (film)|A Few Good Men]]'', ''[[Stir of Echoes]]'', ''[[JFK (film)|JFK]]'', ''[[Apollo 13 (film)|Apollo 13]]'', ''[[Mystic River (film)|Mystic River]]'',  and ''[[Footloose (1984 film)|Footloose]]''.<ref>"The rating furore that surrounded the film is symptomatic, Bacon says, of a particularly repressive period for the arts in America. The film would not, he thinks, have been slammed with such a punitive rating ten years ago. "I think there is a puritanical wind that is blowing. I have never seen such a lack of separation between church and state in America," he says. "I don't believe in God, but if I did I would say that sex is a Godgiven right. Otherwise it's the end of our species." Bacon sounds weary, as if he's been fighting a lot of losing battles over the past couple of years. It can't have escaped his notice that this puritanism will have ramifications for the kind of films that are financed in future."

None of this is rational, or particularly logical. It is how religion happens: a heap of childhood influence, a questing mind as the search begins, a failure to find new or surprising answers, a sound respect for the minds that once shaped doctrine and then the settling for a quiet and untroubled agnosticism. It is merely a timid temperament that inhibits me from declaring a bold, defiant atheism.<br />

Mine has been an outlook evolved from its time, growing from a particular period of history of absolutes and certainties. Everything shifted for devoutly held faith when schools began teaching comparative religion. From then on, the game was up. If each religion, it was now taught, has its own legitimacy, its own beliefs and concept of the divine, what is to say whether one is any better than another?" Joan Bakewell, 'Portrait: Just 70', ''The Guardian'' (London), February 20, 2004, G2: Guardian Features Pages, Pg. 7.</ref>

If further proof of his big head was needed, Brand tells us he doesn't believe in God but is fairly convinced that he actually is God.

* [[Christopher Eccleston]] (1964&ndash;): English stage, film, and television actor, known for his roles in ''[[Shallow Grave]]'', ''[[28 Days Later]]'', and as the ninth incarnation of the Doctor in ''[[Doctor Who]]''.<ref>"I'm an atheist. My mother is very religious, a churchgoer. She would often encourage me to go to church as well, but never forced it upon me, which I thought was quite decent of her. [...] There was no defining moment in which I decided there was no god for me, it was more of a growing process. I do feel that whatever religious beliefs I had as a child were foisted upon me. It's like when you ask where Grandma went when she died, and you'd be told that she went to heaven. I wouldn't necessarily view that as a bad thing, but it was stuff like that which I think hindered my intellectual development. Now that I've grown, I prefer a different interpretation."

Richter replied: "I don't think so. I don't know. I don't think about it much, because I figure, what's the point? I don't know if it's agnosticism. There are things that are beyond our comprehension, so why bother? That's sort of my spiritual feelings. I feel like there might be some design. You can't think, like, "Well, how did everything get here?" I don't know. That's how it is. "I don't know, next, now what's for lunch?" When you pray, I don't think anyone's listening. Besides other people, I don't think anyone cares if you murder people or masturbate or shove things up your butt. I don't think there's anybody sitting in the sky watching you. You're on your own. All you have is other people around you, and how you treat them. I actually think that not having a focus on God would make life better, because there would be more of an imperative to be nice to each other. There would be no more brand-name wars over stuff, and pointless arguments over east side/west side, go-fight-win. But I don't know. People have got to worry about something, and there's obviously some kind of anthropological, almost zoological need. This particular animal does this particular thing.

As an atheist, I'm not going to spend a huge amount of time with it, unless there is a point about the way religion interacts with our humanity that I think needs to be made. You can't stop the Garden of Eden stuff. It keeps coming up because that is the mythos that I was brought up with, and it's very powerful in this place. But, I would say that I'm more interested in the philosophy than the theology of the thing."

But I have the intellectual arrogance that makes it very hard to believe in him. I don't have the gift of faith. I remember at school I used to make up sins at confession - what we were told were sins by priests were not sins at all."

Iron Chariots Wiki:Requested pages/Lists of nontheists

The content below was copied to this wiki from Wikipedia:List of nontheists (film, radio, television and theatre), February 2, 2010.

Do not try to maintain this list, as it may be periodically overwritten by a new version. It exists here only to indicate what names do and do not have articles here at Iron Chariots.

In particular, please:

  • Do not add or remove any names. (Of course, you may attempt these kinds of edits on the original Wikipedia article, if you wish. You may also add names to Iron Chariots Wiki:Requested pages#People.)
  • Do not correct any information. (You can edit the Wikipedia article if you find any mistakes.)
  • Do not fix any broken wiki code. (Many articles, images, categories and templates that exist on Wikipedia do not exist here. Don't try to fix these kinds of problems. Especially don't bother fixing problems caused by the <ref> syntax not working on this wiki.)
  • Do not fix any spelling, grammar or punctuation errors. (This is not an article in the main namespace — it need not be treated as such.)

But:

  • Please do follow any broken link ("redlink") you think deserves an article here on Iron Chariots, if you wish to create the article yourself. (Note that not every person listed below will be sufficiently relevant to our purposes on this wiki to warrant an article here.)
