As An Atheist Can Your Life Have Purpose and Meaning?

I was wondering what other people thought about this.

I realize we weren't born with a purpose. No creator or "higher calling".

But as a non believer can your life have meaning and purpose without god?

Gee, I hope I don't turn you off. 

No way!  If everyone were identical, imagine how boring life would be.  I just need humor more than most. 

One of my biggest thrills in the past year was finally meeting Elayne Boosler at a fundraiser for her animal rescue organization. Her intelligent comedy has been making me laugh for years. http://www.tailsofjoy.net/

Phuck no it can't, as an Atheist or any other part of the universe.

But as a non believer can your life have meaning and purpose without god?

Hmm, not in the absolute divine command sense, but yes. As a matter of fact, I would say I did not find any REAL meaning or value in life UNTIL I accepted that there was NO god. It frees one, and allows them to find actual purpose. Theists have no valuable meaning, because it is a cookie cutter kind of thing. While we are free to shape our lives however we see fit.
