Philosopher Edward Carnell summed it up this way: “Modern man appears to be but a grown-up germ, sitting on a gear of a vast cosmic machine which is some day destined to cease functioning because of lack of power.” This is not an optimistic view of the sanctity of human life. Modern man contemplates the horror that he may live between two poles: meaninglessness and insignificance. If our origin is accidental and insignificant, and if our destiny is annihilation, is it not absurd to believe that we have some significance in between?
