Why Bother???

Created on Feb 16 2013
Dear Dr. Dawkins
I've been a fan of yours for quite sometime and i thank you for your work. It's done wonders in former-morons like and my friends.
Now, the question i have for you is the following:
We all know that this is it. We were nothing before and we'll become nothing again as we die. 100 years from today nothing of this will matter. So, why do YOU keep on working so hard to teach, to spread the words of science if nothing of it will be relevant before long? See my point?
For the record...i've not given up. Still upbeat at 44, working and studying a lot. Concerned about my future health and financial conditions....
Thank you for reading this.
