QotD: Atheism

The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.
― Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Both the atheist and the fundamentalist claim to know things that i do not know, things that i don't think i will ever know, things that i think are probably unknowable.

I hear you. There is. There is not. Either one is a belief. I don't know is the truth.

I don't know - is my truth, for sure. I have no frickin' idea and don't spend a lot of time dwelling on it. I have a life to live.

Yep. And you're doing your best to live it well even not knowing what will happen next.
