[Serious] When God isn't the answer to the question, then what is?
#1
When God isn't the answer to the question, then what is?
Questions people who believe answer with God.

- Howcome we are here?

- Who should we serve?

- Who cares for us?



My question is; how do you, as an atheist, answer these questions?

What makes you think that answering these questions has any real significance?

I figure it would give meaning to our existence.

We are here because our parents had sexual intercourse.
I serve a community of elderly people.
I think my family and friends care for me.
God thinks it's fun to confuse primates. Larsen's God!

Sometimes there are no answers. That's when religion chimes in with platitudes.

Sometimes, when a mommy and a daddy love each other very much..........

Quote:- Who should we serve?
Whomever or whatever we choose.  

Quote:- Who cares for us?
Ideally, we care for ourselves, but in the case that a person can't or doesn't..there are always those mommies and daddies from up above.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Because we were born.

Quote:- Who should we serve?

Ultimately, I choose to serve my own notion of that which I consider Good.
Other folks' choices can and do vary.

Quote:- Who cares for us?

Family, friends...Those who love us. 
To a lesser and often tenuous extent, those who also subscribe to a basic notion of Good.

How so?  What did you expect to find and how does that line up with what you have?
