IMDb (Internet Movie Database) is an internet based database of information related to films, television programs, home videos, video games, and streaming content and these works rated in terms of their quality.

The IMDb list of atheist/agnostic themed movies indicates in terms of its ratings that there were many that were poorly done and there were many that were certainly not cinematic masterpieces.[1]

Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia founded by an atheist and agnostic, does not have "Atheist films" or "List of atheist films" articles, but it does have a "List of Christian films" article.[2]

Many films involve storytelling. The history of atheism is unexciting and a common complaint about atheism is that it is boring/dull (see: Atheism and inspiration). Furthermore, various atheists have pointed out that the ultimate future that atheists envision is bleak where the universe reaches maximum entropy and suns in the universe burn out (see: Hopelessness of atheism and Atheism, agnosticism and pessimism).

Atheist films and Christianity[edit]

The Bible has been translated into 518 languages and 2,798 languages have at least some portion of the Bible.[3]

Atheistic films frequently disparage Christianity. The Bible is a masterpiece of storytelling where the story is true/historical (see: Bible history and Biblical archaeology and Christian historical apologetics). The Bible teaches the sovereignty of God and indicates that God is a planner. The Bible teaches history is the unfolding plan of God. Five important elements of a good story are: the characters, the setting, the plot, the conflict, and the resolution. The biblical account of the fall of man introduced the classic conflict of good vs. evil. The Book of Revelation is the capstone book of the Bible where good triumphs over evil.

Even the new atheist Richard Dawkins admits the Bible has had an impact on great works of Western literature and has great literature within it (see: Bible as literature).

The Bible has been translated into 518 languages and 2,798 languages have at least some portion of the Bible.[4] And the Bible continues to be the world's bestselling book.
