This is the typical complaint of the educated American with no religious faith who thinks that if they don't chow down on every last luxury, they have missed something in life.


Of course, for thusands of years MOST people with religious faith EXPECTED this life to be a veil of tears and expected nothing better.

Personally, as an atheist I'm not interested in consuming as much in the way of luxuries as I can.

To me, luxuries are like a spice, to be used judiciously to enhance life.

I have a number of luxuries that I value, such as being RETIRED, having a house that I own and enjoy, having a car and bicycle I can use for transportation and such.

I have more food than I can eat and more money than I can to spend.

I don't need to make a pig of myself by trying out every sensation someone is promoting.
