    "You don't see too many atheists on the deathbed. They all start cramming then."

    ~ Dolly Rebecca Parton [ American singer-songwriter, instrumentalist, actress, author, and philanthropist]

    On your '90th birthday' ~ would you really feel that your life was nothing more than an accident caused by an unconscious evolutionary process? Or will there be meaning and purpose, and ~spirit~

    . . .Love for your children and grandchildren, good wish for everyone, and an understanding compassion for the entire sentient family on a lonely blue planet...

    If I am fortunate enough to reach 90 I expect to look back on a life spent striving to be a force for good in the world and feel satisfied with that. I think it is mean spirited of you to assume atheists cannot be happy on their own terms at any age. No religion has a monopoly on being a good and happy person.

      I never said that an atheist cannot be happy at 90.

        Doesn't really sound like a state of happiness to me...

        You just pointedly suggested it. Same thing, really.

          That was YOUR perception.
