The Empty Afterlife

In this evening’s debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham, Ham essentially asked, “What’s the point, if there’s no afterlife.” I find that statement to be so sad. It’s really quite pitiful. Think about it, if the only thing that gives your life meaning and purpose is the idea that you’ll die and go somewhere else, something massively wonderful is missing from your life.
