Tom Chivers [http://www.buzzfeed.com/tomchivers] asked 19 atheists how they find meaning in a purposeless universe. He asked them
“If there’s no afterlife or reason for the universe, how do you make your life matter?
As an atheist, I identify with much of what was said in reply to this question. I also think the various replies are essential reading for any theist wanting to understand where real atheists are coming from, as opposed to all those intellectually challenged, brain dead “atheists” currently found marauding the internet.
