@AzH and Nemmerle

By this point (If you've paid attention) You know that I put my trust it in God.

I don't fear Death only becase I know what it is Only through taking in knowledge can we hope to define our purpose on the Earth.

There is no desire, devising, no searching, breathing, or any other ability defined by our five senses in death. I know this. Death is what it is. The opposite of Life and an end of it and there is no afterwards that comes from some natural immortal soul.

But Living is all those things. It is a purpose onto itself. From my Bible perspective...It is not only our purpose to live but to strive to continue living. That is my purpose.

AzH;3264041I sometimes wonder at the futility of life. At the ultimate destination of living. Death. Why do we work and struggle and suffer to live when in the end we simply die? What is the point in life when all life is to end?

Because you only got one life and there is no point in dying even faster. I'm really not in that big of a rush to cut open and stuffed full of sawdust and then put in the ground for worm chow. I'd rather just keep on living untill someone goes crazy and nukes the whole world. That is how I want to go out.

Life is only futile and death is only the final destination if you're an atheist. Christians and most religions really see life as a sort of game where the objective is to claim cool points with God (Just like the Happy Day's boardgame with the fonz) and get a reward. So... no... looking at it from a Christian or religious point of view, it is not pointless.

Alot of people live until they are old and want to die so enjoy life while you are young and able to see the world.

Life is worth it because there's sex and narcotics, and other fun stuff.

Aeroflotte;3264668There is no purpose.

I live to someday be well known & respected, so that I may be remembered. Not that I'd be able to bask in my glory, but maybe I could change the world significantly. To change the world so that people who find value in life can live a better one.

You are speaking to my values. I work hard in school not to impress people, but so that I can change things for the better some day. I want to help stop global warming, make discoveries in astronomy, and I don't think I will ever stop working. If I stopped working, what would be the purpose to life?

Why? Why would we want to give a meaning to life? why why why why why? Did I say "why"? Anywhy nobody can say what' s the meaning of life, everyone has his own meaning. There' s the one that wants to work, there' s the one that wants to change the world, the one who wants to be remembered, the one who wants to have as much fun as he can (me), et c. About death, well, personally I don' t belive in the afterlife because my religion (and I am the only member of my religion) says that I am God, not that God, but a God meaning that I can do whatever I want, I choose my own path, my own choices and so on. To those who says life is short: short related to? History? Well, tell me, would you really want to be 6 billions years old? Ok, the first two billions would be fun, but then you' ll get bored and watch "Murder she wrote" replicas all day. 80 years is a reseanoble time (if I recall correctly that' s the life expectation now, right?), it' s almost a century. Consider that a mosquito lives for 7 days, do you hear them complain? No but they are mosquitoes afterall... In short, live your life, do your best, don' t mess up and be happy.

Because we believe in the future. Its a statistical fact that groups with a future will think ahead more than others. For example, a man with 3 children is more likely to be more long term thinking than a homosexual man, who has no children, and probably never will. Of course, that's just one example. It can apply to just about any demographic group in one shape or form. The belief in the afterlife is the ultimate expression for hope in the future.

Machiavelli's Apprentice;3265253The belief in the afterlife is the ultimate expression for hope in the future.

I don't know why so many people have false hopes for after death. If life sucks so much, how could anyone belive that some magical guy is floating around trying to make life better for you? Join the 20% of us who have come to accept that we will all cease exisitance one day and stop acting like a fool. Would you really want to exisit forever? How long could you hope to go for before getting bored out of your FREAKING MIND? I work for the future in the hope that it can be better for those who come after me. I might die, but that doesn't mean that I should just sit on my ass and do nothing to help others. If there is no afterlife (Which is true) than we should stop being assholes to each other and make the world a better place for all (Because if your one shot was in North Korea you would be PISSED OFF). Likewise, if there actually is an afterlife (Like that would ever happen) than you should stop being such an asshole and be nice to make your God or Gods happy (Not like they exisit). I don't know why religious people think some world goverment would be a bad thing (Like so evil as to be a sign of the end of the world), because unity is the only way the world will ever stop killing each other and discriminating.
