Atheists make the best friends

We often wonder after someone has died if we should have spent more quality time with them. We worry if we said goodbye properly. Now that they are gone we sometimes even question if we were a good enough friend. All these various doubts presuppose that there is no meeting in the afterlife. Perhaps if we believe in the kind of afterlife where we will meet these people again we wouldn't worry so much because there is really no last opportunity to be a wonderful friend.

Now if you are an atheist or have a belief system that doesn't include post-terran reunions there is a last meeting. Each time you get together with a healthy friend it might be the last. They could walk outside and die in a thousand different ways. If one were living their life with this belief system and living truly aware one would make each moment special. One would truly cherish the movements; truly appreciate the time spent together.

I think it would be too depressing to treat everyone as if we would never see them again, and wow would it make me clingy. However if we could appreciate all our friends as if we are not allowed to take their presence for granted we would be much better friends.

Wow am I sappy late at night

    I should copyright my DNA. Then if I were ever sued for paternity, I could counter-sue for copyright violations for the derivative work!
