In a purely mechanical university your life is simply a chance melding of circumstances. This chance is a tiny probability. There are only so many ways you can arrange matter. It's large but finite. there is a chance at any given moment that vacume energy will produce another big bang after so many this universe will repeat itself. Lenord Susskind ( a celebrated physicists ) puts it at 10^500 years from now or light years away.
The consequences of materialism are more fantastic than other world views. Finite arrangments in infinite universes creates the certainty of you repeating this exact life for all of eternity. Of course this makes free will an illusion, but so what, it's mechanical your choices are not your own anyway. That's ok with me I like my life very much. I have three wonderful boys, a successful business working with people, and a beautiful philapina wife, I have been a professional athlete, and Id to think im decently intelligent. I'm fine living this for eternity.... My heven is already here. But I feel very sorry for those who live miserable lives over and over again.
So atheists & Materialists. Are you ready to accept that your life will play itself over and over again like a broken record? In a universe based on chance... Even small ones those chances are bound to repeat themselves. If so then why all this talk of this is your only life when in fact critical thinking shows that you live this life for an eternity and every moment is a constant.
