THE MODERN CRISIS OF MEANING

What makes life meaningful? What is meaning, and where do we find it? The French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre (1905-1980) once wrote: ‘Here we sit , all of us, eating and drinking to preserve our precious existence and really there is nothing, nothing, absolutely no reason for existing’ (Nausea). Similarly for the English scientist Richard Dawkins, ‘the universe has no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference’ (River out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life). On the other had, the Christian faith insists that life has a meaning and that everyone's life matters. So who is right?


Those are the pressing questions Brandon Vogt and Bishop Robert Barron discuss today on this episode of the “The Word on Fire Show.”
