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?

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

      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.

        We needn't a reason to exist. Of all the combinations of genes, conscious and subconscious experiences we exist. That is a reason to make the most of life.

        I am not a philosophy major, but I think we create our own meaning and purpose.
