​​​​Richard Dawkins is right

we are descended from worms *

worms descended from bacteria ("pond scum")

gorillas are our cousins

we the phenotype are the end result of random genetic mutations adapting to the environment better than other random genetic mutations

no intelligence was involved in our "design"

beyond survival and procreation, there is no meaning or purpose to our existence

 



we are a cosmic accident, a fluke

we are made of the same stuff as stars; but just by accident

there is no connection, no relevance, no participation... just "the knowledge",

just grasping at stardust


because there is nothing else




everything came from nothing,
for no reason

we are going nowhere,
except the grave

our thoughts and emotions are merely electrochemical processes

our character and personality are just bits of the cellular mush that is our brain

right and wrong, good and bad are relative concepts
​as is truth

they are evolving




morality is a matter of opinion

love and compassion are electrochemical signals in brain cells that evolved to further the cause of our species
 
nothing deeper, nothing higher, nothing more




there is an eternity behind us that we were not part of

there is an eternity ahead of us that we will not be part of

in a few months, years or decades we will be dust

soon after that , most of us will be forgotten

this applied to our ancestors

this will apply to our descendants

there is no life after death

just dust




death is the end of an ultimately pointless life

there is no hope beyond this dying world

we have no destiny, no destination

except decay, death, dust



the Bible is just another book



God is make-believe




this is reality




why bother

however, above the bleakness and desolation of this philosophy of despair and nothingness, true reality can be found
