Well I don't know what to say, you seem to be more afraid of death than I am.
Can I ask why you wanted an atheist's opinion on this? It's just that it seems to be a unviersal debate, rather than a religious vs. nonreligious one...

Oh, I see. =)

Well, you're going to have to explain why you are afraid that people have no point of being, because I personally see no purpose in serving a purpose. None of us asked to be born...we were just put here, so why should we think we owe the universe something?

And while our lives will never affect the galaxies and the cosmos, it CAN affect the world we're in now, the only home we've ever known. Self worth shouldn't be measured by our impact on the universe, but by how many lives we save, hearts we touch, smiles we put on people's faces. Think of Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Martin Luther King. They're still saving lives and inspiring generations to this day. They aren't candles that have gone out, but flames that flicker on. =)

Can I ask what comment this was that upset you so much?
User avatar #9 - cartergrey (03/01/2012) [-]
I'm focused more on the individual. I see the world through my own eyes. In reality, when all the chips are down and we are near to shuffle off the mortal coil, how is it not sad... terrifying to think that it all just... stops. Just darkness. Not even darkness, no inky blackness, no floating with my thoughts while nowhere. A No-thing-ness empty, dark as holes within a memory.
True Oblivion. The conscious, all of this reality, meaningless. I mean, if there is nothing of us before, or after, then what is the effort worth? how can I ever truly justify opening my eyes and struggling against the day?

I understand that we are in Eden. The good earth is rich, and has plenty, and our lives could easily be free and beautiful as we come together as brothers and sisters, but... how bleak is the end? In the end all our pleasures and love would be as empty as the space between the atoms. I struggle with the idea. Honestly, I do.

I am not hollow. I wonder, I help my fellow men sincerely, I strive to perfect everything I can, and nourish the world that gave me this brief opportunity, but...
I can't just... fade away. But maybe that's the funny part.

As humans we believe that we are entitled to things, even these forms. This body... was never really mine. Chance, or god maybe, maybe natures, made this body, then made it aware, and sometime I'll have to give it all back. But a constant still lingers. Energy never disappears. It changes form. Logic seems to suggest that even thought and conscious identity is a form of this energy. The synapses only go so far... and whenever people get close, they say it's a far greener country and yet, the burden of fear, skepticism, yea even thought brings us to think this is untrue.
Pardon my straying. I walk loose roads when I feel as I do now.

I just want you to know that I'm not ignoring you and I intend to give you an answer ASAP. It's just that understand that whatever I say to you now will probably affect how you feel about atheists in general. Since I'm being a temporary spokesperson for the atheist community, I figured I'd take sometime to consider how to word this. It's not something I think about often, after all.
User avatar #7 - cartergrey (02/23/2012) [-]
I understand trepidation, but please understand that I'm not asking for the atheist community's answer. I'm just asking about what your thoughts on this, given your atheism.
And, if I may make this clearer, I never base any of my beliefs about any particular belief system, be it a religion, society, or community, on a singular person's actions. I'm not asking you to act as a representative of atheism or the community, but as a person who does not believe in "God", regardless of what comes tied to that.
In short, I want your answer to be unbridled by the thought that you reflect the community as a whole, or any other constraints.

Thank you again.

Hm, Great! Well... I don't really know know how to start this, so from one stranger to another with relative anonymity, I'll try to dive right on in. I have a very particular gift. I am blessed by some force, be it God, chance, or evolution, with an incredible degree of empathy. Emotion has never been too far from my mind. Emotion comes naturally to the human, like many things. I am very fond of studying the vast spectrum of capabilities that our minds have, including one of the purest forms of thought, our emotion.

So while I was clicking away with the clockwork inside, I ran across a statement that gave unto me a very, very pure emotion. As I processed it I began to feel something truly horrible. Honestly, I was in a darker place than I can ever remember being in before. As I grasped what I had found by accident, I began to feel a void opening up deep within me. I lost vision for a moment. My head was swirling with something so vastly black that I nearly feel unconscious. And, with full honesty, I wish I were exaggerating.

Please, ma'am, permit me to ask: How is the atheist not driven mad every moment at the concept of BAM! no longer existing as a sentient creature? How can anyone go on knowing that they serve no point, given the size of the cosmos, and upon their death they are as a candle going out? The idea that when you die you fade away and cease to exist opened within me a black hole and drained me of any light I had for what felt like countless years. Truly, never have I had to touch something to grim.
"Never all the evil of man so long as the finger of nothingness."
Honestly, I just don't know how one isn't terrified of it.

Upon this, a fine enough night, I declared joy to the night sky and the shifting clouds and glowing moon. Happy to be here, and be alive on this new holiday of mine. Happier still, to know that for some night, maybe even an instant, That this holiday made someone I care about also happy. That they bore a sincere smile; even for an instant.
Worthy, this night, or noting here. On this grey tablet where I stow what thoughts I can't go without. Glad to have been experiencing this night, and into the future I fight on, knowing that this isn't the furthest I can take this. I will see you soon, because VALEO PROSVM, and I'll earn that which I recieve. HPYBDAY

“There is no conflict between the ideal of religion and the ideal of science, but science is opposed to theological dogmas because science is founded on fact. To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end. The human being is no exception to the natural order. Man, like the universe, is a machine. Nothing enters our minds or determines our actions which is not directly or indirectly a response to stimuli beating upon our sense organs from without.” -Nikola Tesla

Even though people claim beauty is subjective, it can also be objective in certain aspects. Take for instance the painting. The woman, at that time, was attractive. Why? Because fat meant a good life. You couldn't get fat by being anyone in those times. Why do we see fat people generally unattractive now? Well... because we live in the present where getting fat is a sign of laziness, and gluttony, and lack of self control or respect for your own body. A lot of other things are objectively beautiful or ugly, if you look within the context of the era.

GOD ******* DAMMIT!!! WHAT THE **** !!! I just ******* want that happiness, that place that I think I belong in. I ******* bled for four goddamn years through and through and I may as well be a stranger to you. ******* HELL.

Goddammit, I just want you to linger in my airspace a while. I want YOU to look into ME for once. I ******* Die Every Night Now. This is so much worse than whiling away those empty hours when I was alone. Now I am ALIVE, and It burns like hellfire through my eyes. My skin ******* CRAWLS when I think that you may be preyed upon as you leave my protective reach. How can I be such an transparent thing, passed over as though the air barely changes currents. Or am I worse?
Am I the pariah unaware of his state? Do I encroach upon you and your life as a parasite? **** ! Why can't you see me... just... once?

A groan of tedium escapes me, startling the fearful. I have become too accustomed to being a figment in time for you. But I'm still right here, giving blood, keeping faith. And I don't really have anything to show for it... I can only pray that the answers will come as my trials grow.

The world isn't going to get any better since we have caught ourselves in a feedback loop of institutionalized dissatisfaction and rage. We have practically eradicated the only things that give human existence any meaning (compassion and empathy) and then we piss and moan about how harsh and meaningless it all is. We have an economy which is fueled by nothing more than keeping everyone as needy and unhappy as it can, we accept as a maxim that others are different and that everyone is necessarily out for themselves, we only change (by necessity) from one unsustainable mode of living to the next unsustainable mode of living, and then we wonder why we feel unfulfilled, lonely and pointless... doing everything in our power to avoid coming to the obvious conclusion that we have permitted all of our personal misery and done our best to ensure the misery of everyone else in the process.

Nothing would be easier than making the world a better place, an ACTUAL better place for everyone, but since turning self destruction around requires a collective will and, most importantly, the ability to put aside pettiness, nothing is less likely to ever happen.
