Atheism UK speaks on Voice of Islam radio today

Sometimes Atheism UK Council Members get requests to speak on radio and in University debates (I've spoken twice at Cambridge Union and will probably speak at Bath University this November). We also speak to schools about atheism  - we will be speaking to an independent school in central London in September. This time we've been invited to talk to <a href="">Voice of Islam radio</a> about the 'Meaning of Life'.

The four questions I will be asked today (Thursday 18th August 2016) between 4-6pm on their <a href="">Drive Time programme</a> will be:

1. What is purpose of life according to atheist’s perspective and how can one achieve it?
2. Suppose there is no God or immortality and our existence does not have a purpose, how is mankind different to other creatures, for example animals?
3. If there is no divine purpose to our existence and we will not be judged in the afterlife, shouldn’t all things be permitted?
4. What is your reply as an atheist to what Rick Warren has said about atheists? Should atheists become self-centred and stop being ethical?

If <strong><em>you</em></strong> had to answer these questions how would you respond? Leave a comment by 4pm today and I might just quote you!
