If there is no God, then what is our purpose?
Whatever we want it to be? To Love and be loved in return? To be excellent to one another?
There is no purpose without God.
Yes there is. See? I can just make broad sweeping assertions too.
You might say to reproduce,
Or I might say to watch TV all day, what do you care?
but what purpose does that serve other than to make more purposeless children?
Maybe one of those children will cure cancer? Maybe one of them will find a way to teach all men the perfect cunnilingus routine? Maybe one of them will make one single other person happy? Why isn’t that enough?
Without God we are nothing and nothing matters.
Really? Because I don’t believe in god and I think a whole lot of things matter. POINT DISPROVEN, FARTFACE!
Why should we continue on our lives if there is no God?
Because all the best things happen to living people.
So we see that God is the only way to have purpose.
No, restating your point like nine different ways doesn’t help me to see your point any better. I know you think it works because the religious scam center you attend uses this technique on you, but here in the real world, we use supporting evidence for our claims.
He is our purpose and gave us a purpose. To glorify him is our purpose.
So, if a god did exist, which I have no reason to think one does, why would you think that he would have a purpose for people and why do you think that purpose would be something as egotistical and mundane as ‘to glorify him?’ You know how fucked up that sounds? That’s like saying ‘I had children so that they would glorify me.’ or ‘I planted this fucking garden so the tomatoes would sing my fucking praises.’ What kind of asshole would do something like that? I’ll tell you what, if there is a god and all he wants is endless praise from everybody he can suck my left one.
