If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Some advice I wrote for somebody who figured out life is meaningless.

"How do you put up with all the suffering and bullshit of daily life and make anything worth it?"
I'm not suffering. I eat good stuff, I swim, read fantastic books, and play chess on the internet.
Of course it helps to be retired and have a nice income without having to earn it.
One more thing: This makes life interesting. The best game ever invented - chess. And the best place to learn and play the game is Lichess.org which is totally free.
Some day you will be a stinking pile of garbage, aka worm food. So don't waste your precious life complaining.
“The mind is its own place and of itself can make a heaven of Hell or a hell of Heaven”
-- John Milton
"There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so."
-- Shakespeare
