The idea that there is no point to anything is destructive for human psychology. it leads to depression, self harm, and gross cruelty.
even if all other alternatives are completely false, better for people to believe a lie than to believe there is no point to their lives.
on the other hand, better to believe there is no point at all than to believe the meaning of our existence is tied to the will of an intolerant or vengeful god.
the human world has no place for those sorts of gods. all that they can create is endless war, hatred, fear , and suspicion.
it is the worst of all beliefs.
