Waiting to Die

One of the most common statements religious believers make toward atheists is that without the promise of everlasting life, our lives must be meaningless. Quite frankly, I think it is reversed. It seems to me that most religious believers are so focused on their afterlife that they go around this life just waiting to die.

Now I have talked about the purpose of life before, but I really am curious as to what religious believers think their purpose in life is. It seems like their only purpose in life is to die quickly before they sin too much. The faster they get through this life the better. This life is evil, sinful, and full of temptation to them. The next life on the other hand is an endless paradise of bliss kissing God’s ass for all eternity without free will and without caring about those former loved ones now being tortured for all eternity in Hell.

Of course you would be hard pressed to find a Christian who is so eager to die quickly and just move beyond this evil, sinful world. But they should want that, right? Instead, they come up with this copout that they have to do God’s will here on Earth before they die. In reality, these believers cling to life much more than the most vocal atheists do and yet they are still living life waiting to die.

It really doesn’t make much sense, but neither does religion. You have people claiming that this world is evil and bad and that they are waiting for the next life and yet they cling to this life as if it were the only one that truly matters. For me, this is the only world that truly matters because it is the only world I believe actual exists. So I don’t want to waste a minute of my life.

    My wife and I have been life-long atheists. On November 17 of this year she died of cancer. This cancer was first detected in early July and we were told that it was terminal before the end of July. Neither my wife nor I have any fear of death, but we were both afraid of dying. The process of slowly getting both weaker and experiencing more and more pain was appealing to neither of us. I was most fortunate in that I was able to care for my wife right up until the day before she died. She was in her own bed and she didn’t need to take the morphine we had on hand. She did go in the hospital that last day on the recommendation of her doctor and the nurse in attendance. We were together when she died and we shared life’s second miracle. She died without pain and the transition from life to death was both heart rending and beautiful.

    Fantastic article, Staks.

    Capt’n John, I am also very sorry for the loss of your wife, and having shared my father’s last months and been present at the moment of his death, I completely understand your use of the word beautiful – heart breaking, grief-filled, but beautiful.

    The cycle of life is an incredible thing in itself, and can only be cheapened and wasted by false promises of a post-mortem paradise.

    Carpe diem, people. This is the only life you get, like it or not.
