A.H.2k+ series has been an attempt to distill religious sentiment from a catholic church dogma and the society still loosely defined by it on the turning point towards a post religious scientific world. Biblical stories presented to the letter or otherwise put in question and doubt serve to lay bare the archetype of human need of a metaphysical comfort. Religion therefore emerges as a cushion when dealing with mortality, not to address other imaginable applications. Having realized that, one might further conclude that now life becomes even more sacred than it was in times of whimsical gods, which is perfectly in line with what is coveted of man in the dawn of the 3rd millennium.
To conclude in a positive manner – even if godlessness as a philosophy proves wrong, I don’t suppose any god would hold it against anyone for being a true man.
