Your point of living?

What's your point of living? You're all eventually going to die. When you die, there will be no afterlife. It's almost as if you never existed in the first place because you'll forget you'll ever existed,

So what? If something won't have value in the future it doesn't mean that it hasn't value now. When you go to the store and look at fruit do you use the same logic and think "ah what's the point of buying this fruit when it will spoil in a week or two"? Or "what's the point of buying this cat when it will die in few years?"

Hmm, I think it's time I got back in character.

Listen. Fuckpig!

You're a cunt. You're a cunt now and you've probably always been a cunt. And the only thing that's gonna change is that you're gonna become an even bigger cunt.
And no doubt your kids will be cunts.

Even famous luminaries like Michael Jackson or Elvis Presley will be forgotten sooner than later. Your contributions to humanity won't matter either because humanity will end, and life on Earth will be wiped out by a meteor in a few centuries from now or even sooner. If that doesn't happen, humans will go extinct anyway by robots.

These points are true for everyone.  Why are you directing them at atheists?  After all, we are not the people with a problem with life as it is.  

Relative purposes make life worth living, not imaginary absolute purposes.

And I for one welcome our new robot overlords.   Geek

Me too. But our overlords are ants, not robots. The Simpsons predicted it.

Same old trite god-botherers delusion.

It's very simple. You, in your delusion, think you have a get out of jail card from jebus. Thus you have no reason to even try in this life, because you get a do over (or so you think).

Atheists have just one chance to do this life thingy right and no do-overs. Atheists have far more motivation than you god-cranks.

But, you're eventually going to be wormfood and your legacy will be forgotten as well.
The only difference is that I can accept that inevitability, and you can't. 

The fact that life ends doesn't negate it's value, in my view. I can find happiness in life and strive to make existence better for the people I care about without being comforted by greedy fantasies of life going on forever and ever and ever and ever....

That's just the way my brain works, I guess. It is what it is.

So we will all completely disappear. So what? As we grow, we lose a lot of years and stages forever. Abrahamic religions pretty much claim there are no life stages after death and reincarnation claims you won't have all of your memories from your past lives and you might never meet certain persons you love ever again, or as different people. If you eat a good meal you it will eventually be finished or rot, so it will be lost forever. Granted, people usually eat a type of food on multiple occasions, but what you ate is lost forever. 
If after I die I will no longer think or have feelings, why worry about others remembering me? It certainly will not be a problem for me then, so why should it be now? 
And just because humanity will end, it doesn't mean it doesn't matter. If you read a story that you like, finish it, then end up forgetting about it, would you say that the story was pointless?

That is an excellent point. Not just books, but even movies and music.

I used to be a huge Pat Benatar fan, and if anyone thinks I am obsessed with ABBA now, forget it. I do not know every single word of every single ABBA song as much as I like them. But back in the 80s there was a time when I could recite every single word of every single Pat Benatar song, and even tell you what side of each album a particular song was on. I cant do that now. I have to listen to an old Pat Benatar song now, to remember the words. 

I loved the original 3 Star Wars, but I was never one of those that could recite every line from the original 3. 

And with either, if I eventually get Alzheimers and cant even remember my own name, it still would not take away the time I did remember all those Pat Benatar lyrics. 

It is just like that famous line from Dirty Harry most get wrong. He does not say, "Do you feel lucky punk", but said " You have to ask yourself, do I feel lucky, well do you punk?" 

Back in the early 1900s most people would know who W C Fields and Mae West were. Doubt many youngsters know the lines "My little chickadee" or "Come Up and see me sometime." My late mother knew but she died, but that will not take away my current lucid state of my mom, or knowledge of that actor and actress whom existed long before my birth. Just like I love Key Largo, and "A Patch Of Blue" and will, as long as my brain is healthy and lucid.
