Stephen Rapp sent in this question:
I am interested in atheism as a cultural movement. Every time I think about adopting atheism, I come up with road blocks. Here’s one: How do atheists face despair?
I rarely feel a complete loss of hope, and when I do, it usually passes with the help of a good book, good food, friends & family, and a change of perspective. But I know some face massive amounts of despair on a regular basis, and I can’t speak for what they do to cope.
So, what do you do when you face despair?
