Atheism as a Worldview redux
My basic reaction to Red Cardigan's latest atheism post (which can be loosely summarized as, “Atheism isn’t a good philosophy because it doesn’t tell us what the meaning of life is”) is that the fact that she doesn’t find the answer satisfying doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good answer. If you ask, “What is the meaning of life?” and someone answers, “As far as we can tell, there isn’t one,” well, guess what? That’s a valid answer.
