In today’s (2/9/15) Garfield cartoon*, I couldn’t help but think to myself … this is probably what many Christians think about atheists … that they are “stumbling aimlessly through a meaningless existence.”
Speaking for myself as a non-believer, I can assure you my life is FULL of meaning. I have direction, I have goals, I have dreams … and more than this, I have peace in knowing my life is my own. I answer to no supernatural Big Guy in the Sky. I’m not worried about some unseen malevolent creature tempting me to “sin.” And most of all, I have no fear of a “hellish” afterlife.
I would daresay most non-believers/atheists feel similarly. But just for fun, I decided to conduct a quick study.
If you are an atheist/non-believer, how would you describe your existence?
