William Lane Craig On Whether We Can Have Meaning Without God



In Ecclesiastes, the Teacher calls it "striving after wind." Craig calls it "rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic." They're both right on. Oh, and here's the highest rated skeptical take from the comments section:
I don't think you theists look at "meaning" the right way when you judge atheism for having no meaning. We are here. We are part of this whole thing. We have just as much meaning as the biggest star or black hole. Craig's grim description of the eventual fate of the universe as we know it is just the way it is. Running to theism because you don't like it proves nothing except your "subjective" need for a god.
So, according to ptango101, even if there is no God, we have as much meanings as the biggest star or black hole...both of which also have no meaning. Sleep tight.
