...reading through a couple times. :) Lots there to mull over.
The yawning gulf, the void of nihilism, lurking behind atheism frightens me, as it sucks the meaning out of everything. All that sounds so noble about love and liberty and seems so purposeful in this life is ultimately reduced to ruin and rubble that means nothing.
I'll take shelter in the opposite -- a transcendent Love from which everything else is infused with meaning and eternity. If I'm wrong, I'll be none the poorer for having held Love in highest esteem, even if it was an illusion.
