Fact about the Religious Beliefs of David Cronenberg

In an interview with The Guardian
It was apparent to me that religion was an invented thing, a wish-fulfilment thing, a fantasy thing. It was much more real, dangerous, to accept that mortality was the end for you as an individual. As an atheist, I don’t believe in an afterlife, so if you’re thinking of murder, if your subject is murder, then that’s a physical act of absolute destruction because you’re ending something, a body, that is unique. That person never existed before, will never exist again, will not be karmically recycled, will not go to heaven, therefore I take it seriously.
