DENVER, CO – At a local chapter meeting of anti-religion group Atheist Friends United on Friday, skeptic and freethinker Michelle Newberry reportedly delivered a powerful, inspiring testimony, recounting her journey from hoping in God to finally realizing that she is nothing but a carbon-based cosmic accident whose existence is of utterly zero consequence.

“At one time, I foolishly believed I was here for a reason, that there was a higher purpose and plan for me in the midst of joy and even suffering,” Newberry told her fellow atheist and agnostic brothers and sisters in the entirely non-religious meeting. “I am humbled and so grateful that I finally came to believe the soul-crushing idea that my existence is a complete accident with absolutely no ultimate meaning.”

Witnesses say there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Newberry thoughtfully told the touching story of how she finally “saw the light,” when she realized at long last that her existence is the result of an impossibly complex series of inexplicable, incalculable errors, and that she is nothing but a carbon robot devoid of any hope or meaning, barreling toward the absolute nothingness whence she originated.

“I’m here as a witness to the power of atheism—the only reasonable worldview,” she declared. “Things like right and wrong, love and beauty, passion and empathy, ecstasy and heartbreak—these are but leftover, superfluous, physiological baggage from our completely naturalistic journey to being. They don’t mean anything.”

“We should not even exist. Nothing matters. Literally nothing matters at all,” she added with a smile, to the crowd’s enthusiastic applause.

After Newberry finished telling the moving tale of her lack of faith, she reportedly invited anyone who felt called to commit their lives to the void of nothingness to raise their hand, “with every eye closed and every head bowed.” According to Newberry, the group was ecstatic to learn that four new converts were won over to the idea that life is meaningless.

  1. This is a very sad situation and why would an atheist set up anythingbwhy become a Doctor if we are only a carbon based life form accident. This is the rub they want set up Colleges and Universities, Food Kitchens, or Hospitals, They would be no different then the Hindu with the caste system., or Buddhist. Atheist throughout History have accomplished nothing they leave in fact only a chaotic hopelessness. Christianity on the other hand have left a legacy in literature, art, music, education, medicine, and freedom.

  4. I know I tend to over use it, but this article (even though it is satire) is the reason I keep bringing up Psalm 14:1 🙂
