No, they may have a purpose.
You just don't see their purpose as valid, because your highly judgmental and think you are somehow superior in your choices and pursuits.
Like an artist saying anyone whom doesn't write poetry or paint is living a hollow empty life.
Not realizing that other people are driven by other motivations.
I mean, how can you not be religious or spiritual. How can you think that life's a b*tch and then you die?
Thats being a realist overall. Its also the one thing we know for a fact...everything else is guesswork and hope. Some people need to hope things are
great when you die and we all get candy in heaven, others are happy enough simply trying to build a legacy here for the greater human race, and some

makes you want to dig more.
Anyone whom is scared of thought is shameful and weak.
