DOES GOD EXIST? Do I exist? What, if anything, is real? These aren't questions I thought I'd be facing my first year in college. But pretty soon, they consumed my thoughts.

A couple of my friends were exploring atheistic and nihilistic beliefs, which led to some unsettling conversations about these theories of existence. The ideas terrified me, particularly the nihilistic notion that nothing really exists, everything is an illusion, and therefore nothing matters whatsoever. According to this theory, we've all been fooling ourselves into believing that there is some real purpose to life.

We'd love to hear from you!
