Atheism gives us a fleeting pedestal existence, where abundance is decadent and notwithstanding.

Atheists do not live for an afterlife. We live for today and value life for what it is. We dont worship an invisible creator who gives us meaning to our lives- we find our own meaning. This is the polar opposite of anti- life. To the contrary we aren't waiting in this life to get another.

I have hope only because I have faith. Without it, hopelessness only remains.

I feel sorry for you that you can't have hope without a belief in a god. With life comes hope, and I will never believe everything is hopeless even with all the religious warring going on every day on our planet. Notice the Atheists aren't fighting over 'my god is better than your god'. We're not fighting over anything.

I would label myself more agnostic than atheist, but atheistic views don't scare me and actually make the most sense in my opinion.

No beginning, no end, just always has been.

What I wonder is how many of these always has been instances exist.

Well... you could equally state you don't understand love. I don't either.

We are a strange species and struggle with the irrational part. Some would even try to deny it, as it provokes fear, insecurity and melancholy as well.

Nothing new under the sun. You ask where you can find the hidden proof (besides from love)?

Euklids Golden Cut, ya know? It's friggin everywhere, let's call it harmony of life then. Out on a limb here but I think you'll catch the drift.

we are also still struggling to determine precisely where sentimentality belongs in the vast realm of sentience, versus the pure pragmatism of rationality. mileage may vary.
