4967RE: SHSI Re: Was Sherlock Holmes an atheist?
- Sep 28, 2015
I don't see any evidence that Holmes believed in a personal deity, certainly his life-style shows no evidence of it. The fact he used expressions such as 'God knows' wouldn't indicate anything because a lot of non-believers use the vernacular speech of their day, especially expressions of surprise.
As a Holmesian, spiritualist and astrologer, I find Holmes' line from ILLU interesting: The wages of sin, Watson--the wages of sin! Sooner or later it will always come. God knows, there was sin enough.
