AMERICA..AMERICA.....YOU ARE BEING SERIOUS steph
The only way in which being an atheist limits having purpose and meaning in your life is that you reject the "one-size" fits all purposes of religious believers. Nature is full of variety and human lives can have many different purposes.
That's true Dr. Clark. Human lives have many purposes. We just need to find out what they are ourselves.
Life has no meaning..the human race is crazy..mostly psychopathic
Yeah, Alan, I too sometimes say humans are mostly psychopathic and then feel better.
I once told a Catholic priest, who was a fellow juror on a case, I had once been a Catholic.
True to his calling, he tried to bully me and said my life is absurd.
Having just seen "absurd" defined as without meaning, I told him it's my responsibility to put meaning in my life.
Did he ever clam up!!!
For days I was telling myself, "Don't tell me revenge isn't sweet."
Thank you Jennings and I must agree with you.
Your purpose and meaning is all up to you - it's what you make of your life.
Thanks so much for your reply.
A man`s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. Albert Einstein
Steph, please tell me that women also have ethical behavior they should base effectually on s., e., and s.t.
Yeah, women can be cruel to each other, but surely....
Don't blame Einstein for ignoring women; he grew up in another time. There's no law that makes illegal your adding a couple of words to his, especially if you enclose them in square brackets.
