Life has whatever meaning you give it. You can devote yourself to the poor, to science, to learning, to children, to your own well being, to whatever you choose, even to a god.

You can change the meaning of your life any time you like. Or you can choose not to have a meaning at all and just go for the adventure.

Atheists owe me proof that atheism is logical.

Um. No we don't owe you proof. I live my life with purpose and meaning not because I eventually will die but because I'm alive right now.

You owe us proof of a god.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Wow, that is VERY strange logic. You are basically saying that a world with infinite air, water and food supplies is WORSE than a world with scarce resources. Are you sure you thought it through? It kinda makes atheists look like masochists.Undecided

They do? From what I can tell, they generally don't. Atheism couldn't have meaning anyway, without an ultimite base for their beliefs.

I'd say skepticism is a valid base for atheism.

You impose your (dis)beliefs on others therefore you own proof that atheism is logical to everyone.

Exactly how is atheism imposed on you?

Because non-belief in a deity is the consistent approach for anyone who calls themselves a skeptic.
