A stunning clarification of the atheist view point that was both profound and concise.
This bit had me thinking well beyond the normal haunts of my brain.

The problem with ultimate purpose seems to lurk right there, so we build this great new future with god. That was our final and ultimate purpose. So what now? Do we no longer have any purpose? Do we just hang around for the rest of eternity with no more goals? I don't see why this is a point on which the atheists should be derided. Having an ultimate purpose and reaching that in the blink of an eye (in eternity terms) doesn't seem worse than having a finite number of purposes until such a time as there are no more purpose havers.
Great post!
