How would atheists defend the fact that someone like Christopher Hitchens would have lived longer if he were a believer?

Answer by Jim Ashby:

Longevity is not the point of life. It's quality, not quantity, that matters.

The point of life is experience. Why? Because it's impossible to experience unless you're alive.

Depth of experience is what drives us, pleases us and defines us. Depth is a measurement of diving . . . not of treading water.

Will you live your life on the surface? Or will you explore every dimension available to you?

Will you be guided by curiosity or authority?
