The Mighty Atom review ò 3 Sewhere the Knowledge and Love of God as the True Foundation of Noble Living are Guilty of a Worse Crime Than Murd. Marie Corelli s novel from 1896 The Mighty Atom is an attempt by Corelli to show the evils of Atheism Her dedication reads To those self styled progressivists who by precept and example assist the infamous cause of education without religion and who by promoting the idea borrowed from French atheism of denying to the children in board schools and elsewhere the knowledge and love of God as the true foundation of noble living are guilty of a worse crime than murder Corelli then tells a very contrived tale of a sickly boy Lionel whose father John Valliscourt insists be taught a curriculum devoid of superstition aka religion There are two forces in the boy s life one is his father the source of the entire push of atheism His father s influence extends to the boy s mother as well as to the teachers who are responsible for his instruction The other force is that of people who believe which includes the boy s first teacher Mr Montrose who is dismissed by his father due to lack of satisfactory progress in Lionel s education Mrs Valliscourt though she lacks the ability to stand up to her husband and even the boy s second teacher Professor Cadman Gore softens in this area due to Lionel s influence However it is the grave digger Mr Reuben Dale and his daughter Jessamine that are the biggest influences in this area as it is from them that he learns the most about religionThe conversations between Mr Dale Jessamine and Lionel are among the most painful to read as the author insists on trying to convey in misspelling how Jessamine and her father pronounce their words Other parts of the book read very much like Corelli s previous works as the characters are very two dimensional and other than the slight hint at change in Professor Cadman Gore there is no character growth which has always been a problem with Corelli s writing The worst part of the story though is Corelli s attempts at conveying what atheists actually believe It is clear from the start that she has no idea how atheists think It is also clear that she has no understanding of science given the way she talks about The Mighty Atom which she seems to think is science s substitute for GodWhen I started reading Corelli s works I was a bit forgiving about her weaknesses as a writer and though her characters have rarely shown growth in the course of the books the earlier stories at least contained some interesting ideas That seemed to change with The Sorrow of Satan and I am sorry to say that this problem has continued with this novel as well The only saving grace here is that The Mighty Atom is fairly short but you will pretty much know the entire story within the first couple of chapters
