Why do atheists go on living?
The movie Blade Runner has always been, to me, one of the most incredible movies ever made. The flick, adapted from the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick, struggles to answer the question, “What does it mean to be human?.”
I’ve labored to pen my explanation and interpretation of this scene. But, alas, words fail me in that they seem extraneous and unnecessary. So I will allow you the reader to interpret why this scene does demonstrate why atheists and agnostics, despite the claims of the apostle Paul and many Christians since then, do in in fact have a basis for meaning and purpose in their lives.
I think also the scene symbolizes a reason for blogging, journaling and all forms of literary expression on the part of the “nobody” writer. We write and share so that others will know were were here and what our eyes have seen.
Please comment, whether or not you agree or disagree.
