Among other philosophical and ethical questions, the film asks: can there be justice in the absence of God? As an atheist, I have been confronted with that question on numerous occasions. I have always maintained that humans are capable of devising and adhering to a coherent moral framework without resorting to a made-up deity to lay down the law for them. The atrocities committed by many religious devotees - of all faiths - also lends little to the argument that God = justice, in my opinion.
And yet, I have been wondering of late if there is any moral purpose to human life. We are animals; our job, like that of all other organisms, is to be fruitful and multiply. But beyond that, is there a purpose? Who is to say?
