Lawrence Krauss - we provide our own meaning

Nice, isn't it? "We have to force our ideas to conform to the evidence of reality, rather than the other way around."

Is reality not exactly as you'd wish it? Tough! We live three or four times as long, on average, as our ancestors, and you want to whine about it?

Christians often tell me that they don't care what the truth is, because they want to believe what they want to believe. I don't get it. How can you not care about the truth of what you believe? Don't you feel like a complete coward?

And besides, does it actually feel better to think you were designed for the sole purpose of praising some ridiculously insecure deity for eternity? What kind of purpose is that? I'd pass on that kind of everlasting life, myself.

As Christopher Hitchens used to say, at least you can die to escape North Korea!
