Ricky Gervais

London, W1F 0LE
UK

Dear Ricky,

“JUST SOUNDS?” OR DO THESE SOUNDS CONVEY A MESSAGE? IF THE WORLD WAS MEANINGLESS AND THE WORLD WAS ABSURD THEN HOW COULD THERE BE MEANINGFUL WORDS TO BEGIN WITH?

Tony: ( sighs ) There’s no honor anymore. 

man: Have you done a big, farmyard poo? 

Tony: Oh, for [Pete’s]sake. 

man: You okay?

Tony: Yeah, why?

man: You just said, “For [Pete’s] sake,” 

Tony: so… And you assumed summat had annoyed me? Like someone making unnecessary noise? 

Lenny: Oh [shoot]. ( sighs ) 

man: He’s a baby. ( chuckles ) 

Tony: Yeah, but he’s not the one making all the noise, is he? You are. 

man: To keep him amused. ‘Cause if he was crying, that would annoy people. 

Tony: No, ’cause he’s a baby. You making all the noise is the annoying bit. 

man: They’re sounds. They shouldn’t concern you. You talk to your friend. I talk to my child.

Tony: But you can’t hear every word I’m saying, can you? 

Man: So what? There’s noise around. That’s life.

Tony Okay. Good point. Who’s a noisy prick? You are! You big annoying prick! 

Man: Well, that’s pathetic. 

Tony: Sorry, I’m talking to a friend. 

Man: Saying things others don’t want to hear.

Tony: So are you, but you don’t care,

I know that you are active in the  BRITISH HUMANIST ASSOCIATION so I thought this short quote below may interest you.

H. J. Blackham was the founder of the BRITISH HUMANIST ASSOCIATION and he asserted:

On humanist assumptions, life leads to nothing, and every pretense that it does not is a deceit. If there is a bridge over a gorge which spans only half the distance and ends in mid-air, and if the bridge is crowded with human beings pressing on, one after the other they fall into the abyss. The bridge leads nowhere, and those who are pressing forward to cross it are going nowhere….It does not matter where they think they are going, what preparations for the journey they may have made, how much they may be enjoying it all. The objection merely points out objectively that such a situation is a model of futility“( H. J. Blackham, et al., Objections to Humanism (Riverside, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1967).


Ricky, you are a humanist and you have said many times in AFTER LIFE that ultimately life doesn’t have meaning. For instance, the gentleman in season two who is mailing his letters in a dog waste bin and he comments that eventually we all will end up in a dog waste bin eventually. I can think of no greater illustration of meaninglessness and Solomon in ECCLESIASTES also notes in 9:4 Anyone who is among the living has hope —even a live dog is better off than a dead lion! And in 3:19 Solomon asserts: Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless.


Francis Schaeffer noted:

The greatest dilemma for those who hold this world-view, however, is that it is impossible to live consistently within it. We saw how this was true of David Hume. Likewise the playwright Samuel Beckett can “say” that words do not communicate anything – and that everything, including language, is absurd – yet he must use words to write his plays, even plays about meaninglessness. If the words that Beckett uses did not convey meaning to his hearers, he could not say that everything, including words, is meaningless.
The list of contradictions can be extended endlessly. The truth is that everyone who rejects the biblical world-view must live in a state of tension between ideas about reality and reality itself.
Thus, if a person believes that everything is only matter or energy and carries this through consistently, meaning dies, morality dies, love dies, hope dies. Yet! The individual does love, does hope, does act on the basis of right and wrong. This is what we mean when we say that everyone is caught, regardless of his world-view, simply by the way things are. No one can make his own universe to live in.
The reason for this, as we have said all along, is that the individual is confronted with two aspects or reality that do not basically change: the universe and its form and the mannishness of man. Humanists argue that everything is finally only matter or energy and end up with no answers to the big questions. They arrive at only meaninglessness, relative morality, relative knowledge. But humanists actually live as if there is meaning and real morality.They act, for example, as if cruelty is not the same as noncruelty, or justice the same as injustice. Also, humanists do have knowledge, knowledge of a world in which causality is real and science is possible.

King Solomon closed the Book of Ecclesiastes (Richard Dawkins’ favorite Book of the Bible) with these words, “The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with[d] every secret thing, whether good or evil.”

The answer to find meaning in life is found in putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The Bible is true from cover to cover and can be trusted.

After Life – Season 3 Episode 3 Recap & Review

14/01/2022 by Greg Wheeler

The Last Request

Episode 3 of After Life Season 3 starts with Tony honoring his dad’s last request. In a home video, we see him discussing death, and specifically how he wants his ashes to be scattered in Mid Lake after he dies. The destination in question is a pub called The Traveler’s Friend, a place where he actually proposed to Tony’s mum.

Back in the present, we return to the Tambury Gazette where two obnoxious men running a podcast – Ratty and Nonce – show up and immediately start cursing and causing a ruckus. They want to promote their show, which allows “men to be men.”

After this rather rude start to the day, Tony heads off to visit Ewen, a man who’s banned from the all-you-can-eat buffet in town. That’s a whole different situation, but the real meat and potatoes of the story is Tony heading off to scatter his dad’s ashes.

Just prior to that though, there’s a really nice moment in the office where Kath, feeling down in the dumps following her reading, is invited out for a coffee with Tony. On the way, Kath runs into a lawyer called Charles, and the two seem to hit it off immediately. It’s especially nice because Tony actually gives some solid, honest advice for her too, urging her to just act herself around him.

Unfortunately Kath does the exact opposite during her date. She lies and claims she’s a doctor. This only opens up more questions during their date, especially when someone starts choking at a table across the room.

Meanwhile, James starts to regret his choice of moving in with Brian. Seeing life from the other side, with the place a mess and boxes stacked up to the ceiling (not to mention Brian using the toilet while he’s having a bath) sees James contemplate his life choices.

In Mid Lake, Tony gets to work scattering his dad’s ashes. They find the pub and scatter his ashes, but the bar owner immediately takes offence. He’s pretty rude and Tony eventually throws the ash right in his face. “I hope that was his c*ck” He says. (There is more but I won’t write that here!)

As Matt and Tony leave, they reflect on what’s happened and laugh it off.


The Episode Review

The middle chapter of this series starts to slow things down, with the different subplots ticking by and revolving around the idea of moving on and making sense of one’s life. This actually works pretty well across the chapter and seeing James realize that life isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence is a great way of reinforcing that.

Meanwhile, Kath’s lies go against Tony’s advice, and that’s likely to be her downfall. She’s almost certainly going to get called out for that and I wouldn’t be surprised if this trend continues until she hits a breakthrough.

With the character relationships continuing to develop, it’ll be interesting to see what direction the second half of this season takes.

Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,

Everette Hatcher, everettehatcher@gmail.comhttp://www.thedailyhatch.org, cell ph 501-920-5733, 13900 Cottontail Lane, Alexander, AR 72002
