"We don't have inherent purpose or meaning in our lives; we must make it ourselves. If a child of a deeply religious family dies at the age of five, did he/she have meaning or purpose? If a baby dies of SIDS, did it have meaning or purpose? If…"

"People don't like the responsibilities of their lives on their shoulders. If where your life goes is based on what you've done, if it's not what you want, then it's disheartening. So people need a god or gods to have that…"

"I have not found an iota of validity in the arguments of theists. Their idea that our short lives on this rock are meaningless without a "sky friend" is amusing. As a previous poster stated: purpose and meaning in life is entirely…"

"And my point stands. The value of someone's purpose in life is completely subjective. It would be absurd to try and convince someone of this basic concept when that person is a true believer in a cosmic purpose. Living your life with purpose…"
