Why I am an atheist

I’m an atheist and a Hindu (better known as a nastik). I’ve been asked by more than one person about how can I live my life if I’m an atheist and there’s no afterlife or divine purpose. After a general stare of bewilderment, it hits me that the other person is actually looking for answer.

I say, nothing matters! Absolutely nothing that we do matters and there are no long term consequences to my actions, thoughts or beliefs! And the cherry on top, nobody’s looking at us and judging us! Holy shit! Absolutely nothing I do can fuck up the universe or the world. Is this the real life or is this just fantasy?

How are these not reasons enough to have fun, do exactly what you feel like or think and live a life that you’ve always wanted.

EDIT:

I realize that my actions have an impact on happiness or unhappiness of other people. So being an atheist isn’t a passport to assholecountry.
