Is William Lane Craig right? Should atheists be nihilists?

After all:

* Ethics are all subjective and relative, and anything can be right or wrong depending upon what society believes.

* Life has no objective meaning, since we're just an evolved chemical reaction that exists for a brief time and dissolves.

* Free will is an illusion, so we can't be ultimately responsible for our actions.

* There is no justice after death, so if you suffer injustice in this life, tough luck.

Update:

@ HC Try being a little open-minded.

    And yet I do not believe those things.

    The claim that I "should" believe them it is just so much blather from people who don't care what any atheist really thinks.

    "Is William Lane Craig right?"

    The answer is always no. Doesn't matter what subject he's talking about. William Lane Craig is wrong the second he opens his mouth. This is an indisputable fact of reality.

    <edit> Ok. From some of his debates that I've watched, he looks like a sharp dresser. He might have some valid fashion tips. But he's wrong about everything else.

    That's about as open-minded as I can get about that guy.

    Source(s): I can't believe anyone takes that clown seriously.

    Thank you for this video. As a Christian, my life is simple, clear

    and 'easy' compared to so much out there...what does this mean,

    that mean? What debate was this and that?

    Lane is an amazing apologist, and I will want to hear a lot more.

    Sadly it becomes necessary to learn so much more because

    people prod and provoke, challenge and condemn so much.

    Either we allow all that to go by (and that seems to suggest

    agreement by default) or we learn about it.

    Without standards, there are no standards, and it will

    just be ...survival of the fittest which actually fits the

    belief system of atheists anyway.

    So likely for them, it does tie together. Millions have died

    under atheism, though, and it is a very cruel system,

    regardless of some individuals in it that are not that way.

    Jesus Christ man what is wrong with you.

    When I was a conformation biased child looking for something to validate my beliefs, I STILL thought William Lane Craig was full of sh*t...

    WLC is dishonest. He starts every debate with the premise gawd does exist without having proved it. He says a-theist as if he's never heard the word. He still hasn't met Christopher Hitchens' challenge to name a right action or good deed that requires religion to be accomplished...all he could come up with was going to church and/or tithing...hahaha, he's a joke B-)
