Do you atheists ever feel empty? Watch
no you do not... do not let stubbornness impact your argument, i am an agnostic and an atheist whether you acknowledge it or not... google the damn thing...
where did the bold come from and prove it... do not confuse your opinions with fact...
i find it to be a piss take that you say "reduced"... there is nothing wrong with agnosticism...it is the most appropriate view given there is not real evidence that directly proves/disproves god...
My personal theory is that our consciousness is just reborn again into a new being, but I have no idea how that'd work in the perspective of time and space.
Do you ever think that if you are going to accept life and death for face value and come to terms with the harsh realities of life without seeking further meaning, as an atheist does, that you have to numb your emotions slightly?
For me I'm a really emotional person but smart enough to know that God probably doesn't exist. Being emotional I find it hard to come to terms with the harsh realities of life; realities which the religious have ready made answers for.
I have a zest for life and lots of dreams. I hate the thought of death putting an end to that and I hate the thought of it putting an end to my loved ones... the only comforting solution in the face of death seems to be to look for God. Otherwise it's hard to deal with.
Am I alone in feeling this way? How do you atheists deal with this stuff?
EDIT: Perhaps I didn't make this initially clear but what I was particularly wondering about today is how atheists cope with death. Yes, it is a long way off for most of us on here, but could you offer any perspectives about how you deal with the death of a loved one or the fact you will die having not done things you could have?
I can imagine many atheists denying it for the simple fact they'd never like to give theists any satisfaction but the idea of dying and your conscious living on in a place of peace is my more comforting than believing that you're whole being and conscious just disappears...
I cope by not thinking about it.
Of course, the common understanding of the word "agnostic" is different to its usage amongst those who have the slightest acquaintance with epistemology, so I'm sure you'll be able to come up with definitions of your own that state agnosticism is all about being a 50/50 fence sitter.
they are just afraid to admit it!
if you are trolling then gtfo of tsr... if youre actually being serious, then still gtfo but come back after googling what it means...
its not the same thing as believing a unicorn exists... what part of that other guys post dont you understand?
