So you've finally gone full dick-head fundamentalist nutter. Does it feel nice to be out?

I am as concerned about your warnings as you are by the warnings Muslims give you. That complete absence of worrying as you bite into that strip of bacon . . . that's how I feel right now.

Your atheistic devotion to nihilism and meaninglessness is so admirable and inspiring. Well done, old chap!

Yet another theist who can't understand how much meaning an atheist has in their life. You can only demonize those who disagree with you.

Since atheism = meaninglessness, it doesn't matter if an atheist deludes himself that his life has meaning. Meaninglessness means there is no right or wrong way to think or to act.

Nah fam. Atheism = someone who doesn't believe in any gods.
That's the only common factor.

Your reasoning is so shallow it's embarrassing. Rare is the atheist who has the courage to face up to the obvious implication of his beliefs ... ie, that life is meaningless.

Meaninglessness meaninglessly means meaningnless meaninglessness. Look and learn ... even though it's meaningless.

Atheism is not a system of beliefs. You have just revealed that you don't understand that.

Ok. So your individual life is meaningless on the scale of the universe. So what next? There are no controls? No limits? You can descend into meaningless debauchery and proselytizing evil religions because you can't balance your meaningless evil nature?
So what does it mean for your meaningless life to be meaningless?

Of course - since the universe is utterly meaningless too.
