Forgive me for laughing at this notion coming from one of the self-proclaimed socialists on this forum. Not everyone can live a happy, fulfilling life.
I think you misread what I said. I didn't say that everyone will have such a life, only that it is possible to have one even if life itself is meaningless, meaning that life lacking intrinsic meaning does not equate to it being pointless.In other words, I simply refuted your absolute statement that I know to be inaccurate.

Keep things in context. Your life, estimated at what 70-75 years right now (average life span for a male), is a mere grain of sand on a beach using the time-frame that common science has accepted for the life of the planet we live on.... isn't it at billions of years now? Yeah, no matter what you (or I) accomplish in this life, it is small (at best), sad and pathetic to think this is it?
Please, j_H, don't cross KYF's and MrBig's path of telling others what they (should) feel. You may find such a concept small, sad and pathetic, but most atheists (myself included) find it humbling, encouraging and satisfying. You may ask "this is it?", but I ask: isn't it enough?

We are but an ephemeral species on a tiny little rock that already has an expiration date, but we have managed to acknowledge so much about our universe and we're still learning every day and it's such a thrill to be capable of so much despite our very limited lifespan. And the universe is already so full of wonder, beauty, danger and mystery, so trading that for heaven or hell just feels... wrong. Specially when, again, many atheists including me find heaven and hell equally atrocious places to spend eternity.
