Purpose, to enjoy myslef, all else is futile.
That does not mean enjoying myself at the expense of others, as some theists conclude.
I help those i choose, and it makes me feel better about myself and the world around me.
Being remebered, as someone else already pointed out, is pure ego.
And pointless,
think how big the multiverse is, and how long it's existed, being remebered does'nt seem to matter now huh?

basically; *enjoy yourself, it's later than you think...*

To enjoy myself, get laid as often as possible, eat good food, enjoy the sunshine and the snow, drink a good beer after a hard day's work. All along those lines.


What message are you trying to send to others?


No message


What would you like to be remembered as?


I don't expect to be remembered, certainly not long term.

Now, here's the kicker for you. I suspect THIS is not all there is and I suspect we survive death. Theists have a very simplistic view of atheism. They usually "stop at the shock of it all," deride the issue, and never explore or investigate. On the other hand, atheists can be just as simplistic and throw the baby out with the bathwater.

You can believe in life after death and still believe there is no god. That's the point.

OP, i'm pleased to see your mature aproach and desire to learn what drives atheists.
I'm kind of curious and would like you to answer the questions yourself.
Hope you dont feel im trying to derail your thread.

To crush my enemies.

To see them driven before me.

To hear the lamentation of their women.

That they must learn the discipline of steel. For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts. Only steel can you trust.

When I am dead, what does it matter that I am remebered? For I will be beside crom, strong on the mountain.

Atheist's have no purpose, they can only see things in black and white, kinda like a person who's color blind.


Yes. I'm color blind. I don't judge people because they are either black or white, or yellow or blue or red.

And no, I don't have a purpose as you see it. I want to live my life, I don't have purposes like, let's say, telling others how to live theirs.

As a Theist, what is your purpose in life if you are incorrect in your beliefs?
