Carl Sagan

This quote was added by polyphonyex
The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.

What does any of this make the world exquisite? What is love? What is the origin of this "moral depth"? Why is life a magnificent opportunity?

This is the irrationality of the atheist. They cannot defend their position without using tools that, by their own premises, are irrational.
