I can assure you, I do not mean to be adversarial. My questions come from a place of complete confusion about how the atheist works through these heady philosophical questions. As I've said before, it makes no sense to me. So, I am looking for an answer that can end my confusion, or even ease it a bit.
I do not mean to disparage any person by asking the question. Atheists, please take this question at face value. If you feel the urge to question my motives, you might want to wait for the next post. Skip this one.
I hope that caveat suffices, and that some nice atheist will come to the Bubble and answer in good faith, giving me the benefit of the doubt. :)
Here is the question:
You love your friends, your family, your spouse, your children. I'm sure you would even die for your loved ones if necessary. What, ultimately, is the meaning of love?
If I were an atheist, I know what I would answer. But I want to know from you. I chose my words very carefully. Thanks for being as specific as possible.
