Added DiffLines:

* ''Belle's'', a black family sitcom, has the main characters view an atheist this way. Daughter Jil brings a date home to have dinner with her family, who says he's an atheist during conversation. This is treated like the worst possible thing, explicitly more so even than being a criminal. Jack, her date, defends himself well but to no avail. He's actually portrayed in a positive way himself-denying any of the stereotypical reasons for disbelief, and making some good points against their bias. It's Jil and her family who buy into the trope.

** King Bradley goes even further, repeatedly stating that there is no God but the ones that humans make. This adds yet another dimension to his final battle against [[spoiler:[[ReligiousBruiser Scar]], a devout man whose life was destroyed on Bradley's orders, especially when it's a gleam from the sun reflected against his sword (the sun being the symbol for god in both Alchemy and Ishval's religion) blinds him and allows Scar to land a fatal blow]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', Materialists sounds like this when condescending Spiritualists, and Erudite Explorers talk this way to anyone they dislike, ''especially'' if they're Spiritualist.

* Simon from ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' plays this one to some degree during his HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:while still mourning Kamina's death]], at one point he tells former FirstChurchOfMecha member Rossiu something along the lines of, "Could your God prevent [[spoiler:Bro's death]]? Oh, yeah, I forgot, it's just a [[HumongousMecha Ganmen]]!" He eventually apologizes for being rude.

* ''Theatre/InheritTheWind'': Hornbeck. His views aren't all that different from his real life counterpart, Creator/HLMencken.
-->'''Hornbeck:''' Ah, Henry! Why don't you wake up? Darwin was wrong. Man's still an ape. His creed's still a totem pole. When he first achieved the upright position, he took a look at the stars -- thought they were something to eat. When he couldn't reach them, he decided they were groceries belonging to a bigger creature. And that's how Jehovah was born.
-->'''Drummond:''' I wish I had your worm's-eye view of history...
