Life’s a lot harder to live when you don’t believe in anything. I’m not about to try and convince you of this — it’s simply a fact. We’ll all go through a wealth of challenges in our lives, and without a suspension of our disbelief to carry us through them, I’d argue that we’d all be doomed.
We’re all searching for something, though I’d be surprised if any of us really know what it is. Truth? Purpose? Salvation? It could be any of these things or something else altogether — I won’t pretend to know what it is.
But what is life like when you don’t believe in anything? When you take all of life at face value, thinking that there’s no ultimate reward for good behaviour? Nothing that separates a good person from a bad one save a handful of genetic code? Or perhaps no reason behind the actions you take daily — that you’re simply drifting along in life, trying to make the best of each day given to you?
In some ways, I think that just might be one of the saddest ways to lead a life.
