Born 1913 in Algeria, Albert Camus studied philosophy, worked in political journalism and wrote fiction and essays. Also active as theatre producer and playwright, he didn't believe in God. Did he go too far? Did he find the truth? Will you?
"Si j’avais à écrire un livre de morale, il aurait cent pages et quatre-vingt-dix-neuf seraient blanches. Sur la dernière, j’écrirais « Je ne connais qu’un seul devoir et c’est celui d’aimer ». Et pour le reste, je dis non. Je dis non de toutes mes forces, car l’amour est le seul vrai sentiment." - Albert Camus
Meursaults beliefs, like his philosophy, was that he was an Atheist and did not believe in God even when the magistrate showed him the crucifix and claimed that all other criminals felt something when shown the crucifix. But Meursault felt nothing and can be classified as a rebel since he didn't believe in God like everyone else, even if the magistrate tried to convince him.
