Tossing my hat in as an athiest who doesn't buy the concept of atheism extending to this kind of fictional universe. Even the average citizen in Goldshire or Razor Hill interacts with some form of magic if not daily, then on a fairly regular basis. Adventurers are always traipsing through their corn fields, slaughtering their livestock with the power of the Light.Even if they are agnostics (in a sense), they have to concede the first hand evidence of some sort of supernatural element. People make this mistake fairly regularly. They try to apply real world atheism and skepticism to a fictional environment where no such attitude would be reasonable. It's an interesting topic, though, and I genuinely hope it doesn't fall to the trolls. (Even atheists can be optimists, heh.)Oh, and kudos for the Butcher and Pratchett references above!
