In his essay, “The Glamour of Atheism”, Christian apologist Cameron McAllister lays out the undeniable and inescapable end game of atheism and the atheistic worldview:
“What is the chief appeal of atheism? In a word, death. This story begins and ends with nothingness. Carbon-based life is a brief reprieve between two absolute abysses. We have our minute sliver of time on this minute patch of existence, both of which will be swallowed by oblivion in the long run. Seen in this light, suicide…..is the most potent and naked expression of human free will on display, a great cosmic revolt against the material upheavals that accidentally produced us in the first place.
“This is why atheism is a zero-sum game, a philosophy of death that can offer nothing but death. This is why the rising tide of secularism in the Western world is fostering an indefatigable culture of death. Forged in a crucible of nothingness, we wander as cosmic orphans back to the yawning void from which we were so tragically ejected. In such a stark context, anything more than death, or on the side of life, or even minimally optimistic must be regarded with either pity or callous derision because it is obviously deluded, naïve, or dishonest.”

There’s No Warmth Around This Campfire
Abyss “A” is in the past now…
Abyss “B” is just ahead.
Son, oblivion is coming…
(Otherwise that’s known as “Dead”.)
There’s no light, boy, in this Dark.
There’s no warmth around this campfire.
No not even, son, a spark.
There’s no meaning here about us,
There’s no purpose or design.
There’s no “god” out there to save us,
And that’s just the bottom line.
We’ve got “Nothing” here to offer.
And we’re really quite sincere….
It’s the Common Core we’re preaching,
And The End is drawing near.
There is Nothing….Nothing REALLY.
And there’s no place left to hide.
That’s the gospel truth we’re pushing….
HA!...So, why not suicide?
If you’ve not done so already,
There’s a Good Book you should read.
There’s a Now called Life Eternal,
And His Word you ought to heed.
