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?

    My god is music. I cherish it just like any Theist would cherish a crusifix. I fully believe your life is what you make it. Just because there isn't a god above looking down on you doesn't mean you life is worthless. Every one of us is stacked, completely chalk full of reasons to live. Don't let people tell you that you have no purpose. Those people are blinded by their so called god. I swear sometimes the most judgemental people are the ones sitting front row at their churches Sunday Mass. They pray to a god for guidance and peace, but yet they lash out on others because your ideals colide.

      Yes, of course! Actually atheists have to woman up or man up as the case may be and flote their own boat with no god to lean on as a buffer against the political, legal and financial circusES which elites have foisted on working folks by evolving our currencies into unsound money and fiduciary policies in the USA.

        Good question Steph......My life makes more sense now that I no longer believe in the myths that were indoctrinated  into me as a child.......As a person trained  in science, a pharmacist,  I learned  how important it was to  verify before believing....My religious beliefs  seemed  to be in conflict with that.....How could I be asked  to believe in a god no one has seen and knew very little of.? How could I believe the world is only   6 to 10,000 years old, when science has proven otherwise., and in just 6 days?  Once I realized  that I and others  were being asked  to believe in this nonsense, it made everything so much clearer for me.......Some traditions are hard to let go of and I still struggle  with some but as time goes on ,it gets  easier....All in all. I can definitely say my life has more meaning now and purpose, without believing in a super natural god....
