Hi, friends. I think we probably have some atheists here and, therefore, i would like to ask them: if, for you, god doesn't exist, why live then? This question comes from some thoughts i've been having about the topic... because... if we think about life in a crude and pure way, it's basically sitting around until death comes to pick you up, so life isn't a thing "worth living", it's filled with horrible stuff we have to face such as disease, the loss of a loved one, disappointments, wars, hunger, genocide etc. So, in some sort of way, life is suffering and, if God doesn't exist, if there isn't anything after our death, if everything simply ends and that's that (and, to be honest, it is kind of hard to even talk about some sort of "nothingness" after we die), why be good? Why go through suffering? Why do anything if everything we do will go away as we die because we won't remember a thing and we are just a simple biological occurence (that's atheist thought). In short terms, why live if life is, practically, suffering and it would end if we died? (Considering that, for atheists, God and the afterlife, doesn't exist.
