I’m an “ic”; I’m an agnostic. I don’t care what people believe as long as they don’t kill those who don’t share the same belief. Deists and Atheists are both theists; they killed each other during the Reign of Terror. One had a mandatory belief in god and the other had a mandatory disbelief. Baroness Emmuska Orczy used the Reign of Terror as the setting for her novel, The Scarlet Pimpernel. They say this book denotes the first use of a hero with a secret identity, so we now have Batman because of the Scarlet Pimp. I don’t use this part of French history in my book, but it does represent stupid battles over god. The guillotine is a symbol of this time.
