Atheists In Kenya (AIK)

Bringing together non-believers

What do atheists do when they lose all hope in life? 

Atheists are just people. They do all the same things other people do, except for one: They don’t believe in any gods.
So, in a hopeless situation, what they won’t do is pretend that an imaginary being in the sky is going to bring hope. Other than that, all the usual options are open.

There’s an assumption in this question that pretending to know things you don’t know is a source of comfort. That’s just sad.

Personally, I’ve been that low only a few times in my life (thankfully).  In those moments, I’ve made my decisions about how to proceed in basically the same way I’ve tried to make every other decision in my life, namely by asking myself: Will the choice I’m about to make now be a net positive or negative for the world and the people I care about? 

Sometimes I simply slog on through the drudgery of my misery until something eventually changes and either things improved or at least I found a sliver of hope again.
