from _Godless: How an Evangelical Preacher Became One of America's Leading Atheists_ (2008) - Dan Barker

This quote was added by coffee.shop.girl
"If there is no hope of eternal life, then what is the purpose of life?" is a question we atheists often hear. My response is that there is indeed no purpose of life. ... Life is its own reward. But as long as there are problems to solve, there will be purpose IN life. When there is hunger to lessen, illness to cure, pain to minimize, inequality to eradicate, oppression to resist, knowledge to gain and beauty to create, there is meaning in life.
