If you are wrong, you may or may not have lived a virtuous life, because life is complete absurdity and it doesn't really matter anyway. You may or may not have practiced healthy character traits for no other reason than to better yourself, but it doesn't matter anyway, because after you die you believe its to the worms anyway! Quoting: Salt
The quote above is very sad indeed. How anyone can support a religion where "life after death" (a misnomer if there ever was one) is more important than life itself is beyond me. Such a terrible crime.
Life is not an "absurdity." Life is precious, fantastic, incredible, amazing.
Life most definitely matters. In fact, nothing matters more than life. Something can only "matter" to the living.
I "practice healthy character traits" because they further my life. They are the path to happiness.
Yes, after I die, my body goes to the worms (or some such). All things that have a beginning have and end. Life ends.
So I would re-phrase what was said above: if I'm wrong, at least I have lived a happy, fulfilling life. If you're wrong, you've wasted your one-and-only life because you think it's an absurdity and doesn't matter.
