If no God then what? Nothing? Is this it?

10 July 2012, 12:16
I was raised and trained to believe that there is a God and that every action has a consequence, in this lifetime and the next.

It is inconceivable to me, blame it on indoctrination, brainwashing or whatever, that there is no higher power or further existence for the soul beyond this one.

I simply cannot accept that this single drop in the ocean of time is the only part I will play in eternity. The sheer futility of existence in that possibility is terrifying to me.

Thus this question is for those who do not have the same programming as I do.

Let's say there is no God.

Is this it? We live for 80 or so years and that's that?

This post is not sarcastic (or trolltastic) in anyway, I genuinely would like to hear the philosophies of Atheists on what or why they consider life to be.

Are we nothing more than sentient animals or insects?

Do we just live to die?

Remember, we are pretending that I believe what you believe - ie. there is no God. (No argument required).

The floor is yours.

Music is magic, music is life.

Music speaks when words no longer can. When you’re down music is your gigantic crane that lifts you right back up. Music gives you a feeling that words cannot describe. Music is magic, music is life. Read more...
