@SuperFan Fair points. The main point your getting at is that atheism and finding meaning/purpose in life are mutually exclusive? I don't think that's true, but if it is I may be in some other category. I accept the cold logic behind my existence whilst still finding solace albeit in my own mental prison. I am expressing my contentedness within the parameters of world that has no meaning. I still have intrinsic human values that would cause me to advise against suicide and in favor of love and the other positive entities mentioned, but for me the perspective is derived from the enjoyment of what life has to offer as opposed to a higher purpose. Yes it's all meaningless, yes the satisfaction stems from mental processes accounted for via science and nothing more, however value exists in my acceptance and understanding of how I see my existence. This is the meaning I have made up in my own mind to be satisfied in the world that has no meaning... Kind of paradoxical I suppose.
