Atheist Meme of the Day: A Finite Life Is Precious

Scarlet letter Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day. Pass this on; or don’t; or edit it as you see fit; or make up your own. Enjoy!

Atheism does have comfort to offer in the face of death. Among other things, it offers the idea that a finite life can be seen as more valuable, not less: that the impermanence of life can inspire us to see it as precious, and to savor it and treasure it as much as we possibly can. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    Thanks for this meme–it’s one of the most important ideas we can put out there. Of all the memes to get into circulation, if this could be one of the first to spring to people’s minds when they hear “atheist worldview” or “secular worldview” instead of nihilism and meaninglessness, then that will be a huge step forward.

    In fact, endless existence would be the most terrible thing imaginable.
    The only hope of humanity is that there is NO afterlife.
