Everything I do
By disclaiming the idea of a next life we can take more excitement in this one. The here and now is not something to be endured before eternal bliss or damnation; the here and now is all we have-an inspiration to make the most of it. So Atheism is life affirming in a way religion can never be. Look around you, nature demands our attention, begs us to explore, to question. Religion can provide only facile, ultimately unsatisfying answers. Science, in constantly seeking real explanations, reveals the true majesty of our world in all its complexity. People sometimes say “There must be more than just this world, than just this life” But how much more do you want? Richard Dawkins
