Hopkins on atheism

Uit een interview met Anthony Hopkins (hoofdrolspeler in o.m. The Silence of the Lambs, The Remains of the Day, Shadowlands, The Rite) in de Catholic Herald:
Being an atheist must be like living in a closed cell with no windows. [...] I’d hate to live like that, wouldn’t you? We see them, mind you, on television today, many brilliant people who are professional atheists who say they know for a fact that it’s insanity to have a God or to believe in religion. Well, OK, God bless them for feeling that way and I hope they’re happy. [...] But I couldn’t live with that certainty, and I wonder about some of them: why are they protesting so much? How are they so sure of what is out there? And who am I to refute the beliefs of so many great philosophers and martyrs all the way down the years?”
