The Atheist Community, part 2 with Penn Jillette
The question was intriguing from an "outsiders" point of view, to be quite honest.
The answer, however, was heart-breaking. Penn enthusiastically replied, "We have rock and roll!" The audience cheered and laughed. He continued, "But seriously, we have art..."
I'm not a big fan of art. I'm not artsy-fartsy, but I can appreciate neat works of art when I see them.
But if that's all the hope I have in this life....
My heart was broken for Penn, for my friend, and for all the people around me who are without greater hope than "rock and roll" and "art", with what this temporal life has to offer. It has some great things to offer, but they are merely temporal.
