As An Atheist Can Your Life Have Purpose and Meaning?

I was wondering what other people thought about this.

I realize we weren't born with a purpose. No creator or "higher calling".

But as a non believer can your life have meaning and purpose without god?

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

AMERICA..AMERICA.....YOU ARE BEING SERIOUS steph

The only way in which being an atheist limits having purpose and meaning in your life is that you reject the "one-size" fits all purposes of religious believers. Nature is full of variety and human lives can have many different purposes.

That's true Dr. Clark. Human lives have many purposes. We just need to find out what they are ourselves.

Life has no meaning..the human race is crazy..mostly psychopathic
