Get a load of this guy
January 09, 2017
A friend sent me this guy. We were talking about how our understanding of meaning had changed since leaving Christianity. In my earlier years as an atheist I always wondered how atheists like Dawkins could be so apparently happy and loving the wonder of the universe etc. I thought the Christians were right who said the honest atheists were the miserable ones in despair at the lack of meaning.
But now I'm feeling more like this guy. Life is too big to have meaning - meaning would diminish life. The experience of living is where the joy is, not some external goal that makes it all worthwhile. This dude would not normally be my dude but for tonight only he is my dude. (For the first 1:14 anyways, after that he's too fluffy even for my tonight-only enlightened state.)
