What is the meaning of life for an atheist?
Hello, dear Ladies and Gentlemen!Many people do not think about the meaning of life. Others attach great importance to this issue. It happens that a person who has not found an answer to this question, gets drunk or takes his own life.But in what does everyone find the meaning of existence for themselves? Some try to build a paradise on earth and devote their lives to it. Others try to solve some specific tasks (to earn money, put their children on their feet, pass on their inheritance, and, as they say, live as long as you live).Believers associate the meaning of life with God, with the attainment of Truth and eternal bliss. And how do atheists solve the problem for themselves? What do they live for? From the point of view of believers, life without God is meaningless. Death is the end of everything, and what are all the efforts on this earth worth if, as Archpriest Dmitry Smirnov said, then only a burdock grows on the grave? Better, my father went on, to go straight to the coffin. But atheists live! So, they are afraid of something, Father Dmitry concluded.I understand that an atheist has nothing to do with the priest's words. But still, how can you say for yourself why you live, if there is only one life, then death-and that's it, the end?Thank you all for participating in the discussion.
