It sounds intriguing to me that an atheist would consider writing something that appears sacrilegious or sinful to others. Why would you care? I guess that I will have to read at least the first chapter.
I don’t see the problem in writing something that appears sacrilegious to others at all. I view religious stories as just that, stories. I am entitled to write from my point of of view just as much as any religious person is. And just because I am an atheist, doesn’t mean I don’t care about religion. It interests me, I am allowed to be interested. I do not intend for this book to be adopted by anyone religious, I do not intend to turn anyone away from religion with it. People of religion just wont read it and that is fine. I have read loads of books where I don’t agree with the subject matter, I actually quite like it, it makes my brain work. This book is about more than religion, it is about looking at things in a different way.

And a belated welcome from me EJ
"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government".
-Thomas Jefferson

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.
