I disagree Svend. For believers in God and an afterlife, the hope that keeps you going is to spend eternity with God. Most believers think that life is a trial to get through until death. So by reason, the believer is one who should want to end his life to get to God faster. Non-believers realize our finite life is all we have, so why not make the most of it. It doesn't make sense to me to end it now since God doesn't exist. I have no desire to. I want to see what happens everyday.

Dawkins does not say there is no purpose in life. He just doesn't believe a God needs to exist to give us purpose.
