Why should I care? I will die anyway. It is indeed noble to care for other humans for some people, but I dnot choose this path. I choose the path of enjoying life to the fullest, these people I meet will die anyway, so why should I care about the others? Once I am dead, something which I can't avoud, these people can't do me anything anyway. Ultimate pleasure is better than caring for other human beings. Just because I am human doesn't mean that I have to take care of other hyman beings, it is I who is the most important, everyone else comes in second.Who's ignoring what, now?
You make a lot of claims about what people who don't believe in god believe.
Just because some atheists are nihilists doesn't make all atheists nihilists.
I gave you a reason for living. And it's a simple one.
We are humans. We are born humans. We die humans.
As humans, our biological imperative is ensuring the continuation of our bloodline.
And the best way to assure the continuance of that bloodline is to work to provide a better world, a better future for our descendants.
That involves helping other people. And not being a jerk. Cooperation provides the best chances of survival for the young. "Do unto others", as Confucius said, long before Christ.
Sounds like a reason to choose existence, doesn't it? And it doesn't involve materialistic joy at all.
There is no need to make a better world for my descendants if I choose to not have descendants in the first place,nor should there be a reason for me to care about the world once I am dead. No reason at all. It's a waste of time in fact,I could spend my time enjoying my life instead.
