Without God Everything Matters
A Christian on Twitter recently told me “Without God nothing matters.”
I really don’t understand how someone can come to this conclusion if they are thinking at all. To me, without a god everything matters. Our lives are so short that every last second is a page in the novella of our lives. Why on earth would you want to live your life thinking “If I’m wrong on this one issue then my entire life is for naught”?
Life is infinitely more important when it’s finite. This is my only life and I have no idea how long it’s going to be, with the advance of modern medicine I may live to be 150 if I can avoid a terrible accident, maybe even 300 years if we don’t have any more Republican presidents banning funding on research. Ultimately, I can’t know though and that is a scary thought, but that doesn’t mean I start believing in things that are completely devoid of evidence.
So what about you, fellow atheists, do you think life matters even though we don’t get to live forever?
