At first, it seems reprehensible to suggest someone’s life doesn’t matter—but this is an objective fact about atheists. They’ll be the first to tell you that life has no meaning, or some platitude about how we must find our own meaning. Sorry atheists, life does have meaning and serves as much function to God as a brain cell serves to the mind; in this analogy, atheism is cancer.
Atheists are living a meaningless life doomed to suffering.
Many atheists are non-believers because of depression. I am not trying to suggest they ought to kill themselves. Rather, I am pinpointing the source of their suffering. By misidentifying their “Self” with their conscious attention, atheists are quite literally defining themselves with their anxiety. We’ll discuss this and how it relates to original sin in a later post about identity.
As the only known self-aware beings, and this will remain true even after discovering extraterrestrial intelligences, it is clear to most people that we have a special function in the Universe. Atheists, because they misidentify themselves with an illusion, believe consciousness is something contained. Science suggests this is not the case, in fact—our bodies are deterministic machines continuous with the whole causal chain of events. Our will is likewise part of the continuum.
By acknowledging ourselves as the will of the Universe, we fulfill our purpose. Until atheists become liberated from the hallucination of being an individual, they are living a meaningless life doomed to suffering. That is why they need our help.
