“How do atheists find meaning in their lives without God?” It may be the second most common “gotcha” question asked of atheists, after “Where do atheists get their morality from if not God?” It’s just as annoying too, because the answer is “In every way possible!” If you need proof, just turn to the new book by journalist and historian Peter Watson.
In The Age of Atheists: How We Have Sought to Live Since the Death of God, Watson chronicles the Western scientists, philosophers, and artists who have worked to draw meaning from our lives since Friedrich Nietzsche so infamously signed God’s death certificate. It is a book remarkable for its scope.
Join us this Sunday as we speak with Watson and dip our toes into this complex and fascinating subject.
