Any books/novels where the main character is atheistic?

Not for religious promotion, but for the positivity of atheism. Any really juicy, nice ones out there?

    Check the non-fiction sections.

    For fiction, I know of only one author - Arthur C. Clark.

    "Positivity of atheism?"

    There is no such thing.

    Atheists have nothing to look forward to. Life is POINTLESS without God.

    I think the Darth Vader character might be an atheist. But that character was from a movie, not a novel.

    Read "Cosmos" by Carl Sagan..

    Far more awesome than the Holy Bibles that you have never read.

    I say you never read them because if you did, you would be an atheist..

      Raised in the church, studies the bible. Don't talk on things you don't know, bud. It's just the Internet. Assumptions aren't good. Thanks for your answer to my question, but no thank you to your further unneeded commentary.

    Not any good ones.

    Atheist authors are typically nihilists.

    Unless you're into Marxist ideology, I don't think you'll like any book ever written by an atheist.

      No **** it's English.

      But what is the subject matter contained in said books?

      Nihilistic themes I bet.
