“The best any human can do is to pick a delusion that helps him get through the day. This is why people of different religions can generally live in peace.” These are the words of Scott Adams, in his thought exercise called “God’s Debris.” This work of serious fiction by famed agnostic (and the author of the Dilbert cartoons) Scott Adams began as a simple conceit; Adams asked himself “What if?” What if I create an explanation? What if I begin with simple questions, and look for big answers? What if I examine religion from an outsider’s perspective?
God’s Debris is fiction, some of it is lies. Some of it is true. None of it is what Scott Adams believes. At least that’s what he says.
