Without God, Why Ask?

The search for certainty is at the same time a search for the meaning of human existence and the meaning of the universe in which we exist. The unbeliever may try to find momentary comfort in the theory of evolution but the hard truth is that the universe is running down toward ultimate oblivion. In the mind of the naturalist, the story will end in the tragedy of a lifeless universe with all energy expended, all suns dead and cold.

It is useless for unbelievers to gaze at the stars and ask why they have been placed on this planet because without God there is no one in the endless, black silence who will even hear the question, let alone provide an answer. Without God as the ultimate absolute (see blogs #10 and #11), there can be no why and no reason to ask for one.
