The title of your book and film contain the phrase “ in a world without God.”
This seems to be presumptuous, seems like you assume, due to your beliefs, that God does not exist in your world. How can this possibly be? It appears to be a situation of a lesser assessing a greater using only the understanding of the lesser, so a significant limitation may exist.
