Blogging for logic // Religious assumptions

Greetings all!



I haven't posted on TA for a while but have been lurking the site and enjoying everyone's videos and blogs. Regrettably, my free time has been at a premium, and jumping in to discussions right at the deep end is what has ultimately suffered.

Having meaning without a meaning.

Recent conversation on here has caused me to write this blog. My apologies if someone has already covered this, but I haven't been on as much as I'd like lately.



Religious people often state that their religion gives their life a meaning. It is then the obvious counter claim that they say that we as Atheists must feel life is worthless since we don't have religion behind us.
