If there is no god, what is the point in living? If there's no afterlife, the only rational choice is to kill yourself as soon as possible, you won't feel remorse or anything at all anyway.

Feeling nothing > feeling pleasure+pain

>At the start of all things the Gods shaped the earths and seas, scattered the stars across the heavens and filled the land with life. There was trees and bird and fish and all was ordered, each creature it's place and for a time the Gods ruled over their creation like a child might a doll house, revelling over it's beauty.

But like children in time the Gods grew bored. For all the order there was no life. No change, no evolution or surprise. The wonder faded, the novelty faded and all that was once beautiful became tired and grey.

So the Gods made one more creature. They fashioned him in a strange image, they took away the strengths of his peers. No fur or claws for him. No place in the natural order of things did they make for him. They threw him into the wild alone and unloved. But they gave him one gift. No God's hands could touch him. No God could control his fate. He would make his own destiny, and thus would provide endless entertainment for the watching eyes above.

And so they made Man. And cast him out upon the world.

And in that moment they realised their mistake.

For now there was no need of Gods...

>> No.10342685

Such an outlook is only held by those who, up until recently, DID define their life's purpose in the context of God(s) and an afterlife (or still does, and is just trolling). Those who have "moved beyond such silly supersticions" dont hang all our purpose on cloudy-playland-skycity and Ah-Jeyh-usuhs! The mere reality of existence is a wonderful experience compared to none at all, and there are things like the search for knowledge, helping others, enjoying and expanding your pereception of reality, and the satisfaction of realizing that, despite your eventual death, you have made a chance in the world around you.

Just because something is transient doesnt mean it has no worth. It's like asking what the value of a cake is, if it will eventually rot or be eaten, thus ending, without an eternal cake-repository it goes to after it's eaten, where a magic beared man judges how good a cake it was and assigns it a suitable reward based upon it's flavor.

Find a reason, Make a reason, Meet a reason.

Everyone always says "afterlife" but tell me, what the fuck's so great about an afterlife? What's the point in being there? You'd either get numbed to the pain from always the same damn torture all the time (the lack of perma-death would take a whooole lot of the fear and feeling of that away) or, what, get to "bask in glory" for eternity? How long before you get suicidally BORED of that? Have you ever thought of that? That's not a fucking reward, and those that think it are fucking deranged.

So that leaves what, reincarnation and 'nothing'? Well, in both those cases (not that ANY afterlife or reincarnation has had evidence: nothing but "this guy tells me that this book told him that this guy said that...") you either want to make the world a nicer place for you to come back to next time, or you want to make the most of your ONLY FUCKING LIFE.

And bloody fucking hell you devout monstrosities: what about your friends, family, and children? and grandchildren? Are you so fucking selfish and concieted that you don't even find meaning in making their future brighter?

Which is it really, the few times I've watched Dawkins debate with religious people trying to get them to defend Intelligent Design (a pretty fucking retarded theory at best) he'll basically just troll the fuck out of them, misrepresenting their argument, not give them the full chance to explain their belief and basically hang themselves as though the viewer is too fucking stupid to know bullshit when he hears it.

He sounds like a fucking reporter asking leading questions, putting words in peoples mouths and purposefully misinterpreting their position to make his agenda look better... but it belittles his argument so much.

It's like he's a representation of all those smug teenage atheists who endlessly attack people for hanging on to superstition as if to smear it in their face they are fucking stupid for wanting to beleive in something higher then a empty universe.

God would be a feeble creature indeed if his world stopped spinning as soon as he withdrew his hand. The life is worth living by itself. That the life is obviously superior spent in prayer does not qualify your statement.

Belief in an afterlife/reincarnation is far from not caring about this one.

As for the rest I don't know if it is something you can get bored of /numbed to since I am not there and neither are you, also stop trying to re-rail.
