The existentialist view--so popular with so many younger people today--that we begin with oblivion and end with annihilation, that what comes between is either meaningless or mysterious, with no solutions to problems, no answers to questions, is a view which the tragedy and evil and catastrophe of our times tempt us to accept. But religion and philosophy release us from this despair.
