An atheist's life has no meaning.



But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: An atheist's life has no meaning.
Actually I prefer my life to have no meaning per se... I rather give my life meaning as I see fit, as I think that giving meaning to things is the most defining thing a human can do, searching meaning for our lives outside is giving up our own humanity

I wouldn't disagree at all. I think that what he's saying in the video encompasses that view. Life itself is the meaning, whatever attributes you infuse into your life make it that much more meaningful.

yes, I wasn't disagreeing with the video, just expanding on the topic... but I clearly failed to point that out Tongue
