seals,

I don't believe nihilism is the only logical outcome of atheism, you are providing ammos for religious people by what you wrote. I have a feeling that even you don't believe in what you wrote. You are like those Goths who try to be cool by wearing black, writing about the pointlessness of their lives and pretending they are all going to kill themselves.

Life may have no preordained meanings, it doesn't follow that we cannot and should not create meanings for it. Atheism is liberating in opening up new possibilities, nihilism is binding and points to only the dead end.
