That is to say; atheists, by their own decrees have no inherent value, nor do their religious counterparts. To the atheist the value of a person is self-ascribed...but if the person who's ascribing the value has no value, then there's no credence to that value! It becomes an exercise in masturbatory futility. Obviously, if you have no value and no place...you have no purpose. So atheists, let me ask you...why do you keep on living at all? - Is it to simply enjoy the next physical sensation in a never ending quest for ambrosia? - Do you enjoy constructing emotions through intentionally placed ignorances? - Does the struggle of giving another shmo with no purpose an equal chance to share meaninglessness drive you through life? - Or are you just afraid to die? Those things aside, are you an animal? Or are you an animal uniquely different and elevated above other animals? If you bite me...can I put you to sleep? Why not? Just in general I'd like to hear from atheists about how they struggle to find a reason to not end their lives when they've already determined internally they have no purpose at all. Or, I would at least like to hear the delusions they use to convince themselves.
