People who call themselves atheists say, “God does not exist.” But, do atheists exist? – a matter of definition. If you define God as existence, the reality in which we live, as truth, love, justice, helpfulness, honesty, logic, as a set of general concepts, then there are probably no atheists. Not many people doubt the reality around themselves. However, if you imagine God as a picture-book god, with a white beard and long robes, parked above the clouds, you are right in rejecting such an image. It is the same as not believing in Santa Claus.

Yet, there is a meaning of atheist, that is very real. This is, in traditional terminology, the sinner , the person who objects to the truth, who opposes love, who does not want to obey his or her conscience, who would like to insist on a lie. And this type of atheist is everyone of us.

My late brother, Frank de B Wall, collected a lot of material on our mother’s first cousin, Charles de Berigny, and arranged with an artist to paint a picture of the aerial dogfight in which he was able to get a burst of bullets into the Red Baron’s plane. This operation took place on April 2, 1917. Charles was killed on April 29, 1917, aged 19 years.
