This actually really got my brain turning…
I come across so much atheistic or skeptical themes in modern artforms that it’s easy to forget the religious think we’re hollow soulless sad automatons incapable of producing anything beautiful or artistic. That’s simply not true. (Albeit that beauty may be in the eye of the beer holder)
In this thread let’s reference art we’ve seen/found/experienced that is of a more non-religious outlook.
I still clearly remember my first encounter with openly non-religious thought, and the discomfort my religious juvenile mind felt when I first heard Imagine by John Lennon. What if I get caught listening to this?! Turns out my parents seemed oblivious, or in denial, of the songs’ content… as people of the 60s themselves maybe they’d just gotten used to it being there.
I frequently quote “A perfect circle” in my sig, mostly because of their non-religious themes. In fact they’ve done their own version of Imagine as a tribute. But in addition there’s the vocal lead’s very public open letter (song) to his mother about her terminal cancer and her faith in a god that has clearly failed her.
I’m sure I can go on for days… but I’m keen to see other examples that haven’t crossed my consciousness quite yet.
ps. I don’t just listen to heavy metal, or even mostly, but that does seem to be where the skeptical themes mostly reside. Or does it?
