Topic:

Why have a purpose in life if you're an atheist? If you don't believe in God, or an afterlife of any kind, where there are no repercussions for your actions here on Earth, why bother to even live another day? What would be the difference between dying now, or dying at 110 years old? Once you're dead, nothing is going to matter to you anyway. What you accomplished, what made you happy, the values that you held, the rights that you respected, your family, your friends, nothing. You'll be dead and you won't even exist to care about the legacy that you leave behind or anything that you did in your lifetime. So why bother doing anything at all? What's the difference between living your life to the fullest or living it to the least?

This is a pretty huge topic, so please come prepared. Hope to see you there!
