Atheists, what is your point?

08 January 2013, 13:06

For Atheists whom don't have an agenda, why do you seem to care so much about the world so much. Its not like you will be there to see or feel the fruits of your "good deeds". In fact humanity can vanish off the map right now in this universe and no one will be impacted because no one will remember anything. We will all be dead and not know or feel that we existed at one point. It will be the end of it all, the end of time as we know it. Its not like you believe in humanity's purpose. Infact its not like we are here for a purpose. If you think we are on earth for a purpose and you're also Atheist then you are a disgrace to your belief as that would mean you believe we were PUT here for a purpose. A mutation or mistake (evolution) cannot have a purpose.

Lets take the arguments you will obviously throw at me into perpective before you throw them. Some of you will argue that you care about life so much because it is precious and that you're a caring person and care for the advancement of the human race etc. But how precious is a gift you will not remember the next day. You might as well not have recieved it right? So why should this thing we call life continue if NO ONE will remember any of it. It is useless. If you are atheistic then you agree that once you die it is all over. In fact we would have been all at more peace if we never had life. Actually according to your belief it can be concluded that life is a bad place for people because they have to go through all this suffering, and for what? for nothing because after that you will die and remember nothing, learnt nothing, and would have suffered for nothing, in fact it would have been better for you had you not existed at all. Its not like a better life is promised afterwards. Charles Darwin is gone, he remembers nothing about what he's done on earth, not his achievements, nothing, he's a gonna forever. Even he's legacy on earth is useless as its not like he can feel the respect you all give him, its not like you will remember the respect you give the man, nor will your son's and sons' son's.

In conclusion, why does it matter if Christians believe what they do. If they are wrong then its not like they'll feel bad that they wasted their time on earth right? its not like they'll say "dammit i wasted my time down there only to find out there is no God" no they will remember nothing according to you. Why should we all convert to Atheism if we won't have a clue we once were Atheists (this is what i mean by having an agenda) why is it so important to you and Richards Dawkins who blatantly makes that importance so obvious. MOST IMPORTANTLY: Why should humanity last for millions of years to come, advance in knowledge etc if no one will remember it all. If there is one thing science agrees on its that nothing is eternal, so evetually humanity will be no more at some point, whether its billions of years from now, we will all die, it is enivitable, and you won't know you ever lived, no one will. Even if humans find the fountain of youth and live for thousands of years and enjoy their lives with all the money in the world, when you eventually die, its not like you'll remember those things you did for all those thousands of years. We should rather stop having babies and exterminate ourselves and not bring children in this world as that would be selfish and would bring no purpose at all, as that would bring less pain, that would be the logical thing to do, right?. Please endulge me on this Atheists, what is your point?
To find God, you need to find out what humanity's purpose is. The purpose of life anywhere. The plants the animals, the soil, air, the flies, bees, your eyes etc all have a purpose. Purpose is all around you. You just have to open your eyes and see it.

P.S: It's easier to attack than actually respond logically. Please answer me, "what is your point?"
