Chuck Boyer replied to Steph S.'s discussion As An Atheist Can Your Life Have Purpose and Meaning?
"Good point, Pandora ... To "live" lives free from religious tyranny allows for their fullest expression and (potentially) garners greatest meaning. So my response is yes, life can be the meaning, and living our lives, truly…"

"@ Teach @ Goscicki   Thanx for replies to my post. If I may add, for me the Fundamentalist saturation was tantamount to child abuse. Screwed up my life royally up to about age 30, when I experienced the first serious yearnings/cravings for…"

"Well put, Loren. I especially like "... as growing and learning in the directions which ... interests lead me, and in enjoying this life so long as I have it." Wiser words have not been invented. As far as I know."
