Atheism embraces pointlessness, ethics are meaningless if the entire world is pointless. Saving the earth from "global warming" would be pointless if the world is meaningless. Staying faithful to a spouse and/or doing anything to help society as a whole is pointless, meaningless because it will all be gone anyways right? Especially if no one is going to reward you for it. What is the point of being remembered for any time at all when you will eventually be forgotten. Atheism is more harmful than religion. In fact religion is helpful to society.
You need some man made bronze age mythology to give you meaning? That's very sad.
Atheists don't waste their lives performing stupid rituals and otherwise trying to appease fictional gods out of a delusion of going to a magic theme park in the sky for eternity.
You aren't going to be rewarded after you die any more than you will be punished.
