The problem with Venerable Nishijima's comment is that no-one believes the above. It is a construct developed by fundamentalist Christians, designed to suggest what atheists believe in (or don't believe in). I have never read such a nihilistic viewpoint, except in debates between Christians and atheists. It is part of the "atheists are immoral, because there can be no morality without God" meme. In fact, Nishijima's assuming that such a viewpoint is the belief of anyone means he has been taken in by the fundamentalists.
On the other hand, I would say that the other popular philosophical viewpoint these days (what my teacher, Nishijima, calls the religion of meaningless "materialism) is also likely wrong: namely, that we live by random chance in a cold, dark, dire & ultimately dead universe on a pointless piece of rock in a dusty corner of a deaf and dumb galaxy ... nothing but matter going no where driven by blind mathematical equations. That kind of thing. We are just something that universe happened to spit up like a bit of phlegm, or maybe a cosmic fart.
