Post by Alkhasy » Sat May 04, 2013 10:02 am

Many people may doubt that finding God is the purpose of life; but everyone can accept the idea that the purpose of life is to find happiness. I say that God is Happiness. He is Bliss. He is Love. He is Joy that will never go away from your soul. So why shouldn’t you try to acquire that Happiness? No one else can give it to you. You must continuously cultivate it yourself.

To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women?

Life is a process, a propagation of self similar patterns. It has no more purpose than ocean waves.

I think your missing the point a little........

The Bible, and all the non-sense that comes with it is as real as the tooth fairly and the easter bunny. Why not spend your life looking for them instead???

In this day and age, with the knowledge we posses as a race, why is it people are still believing in fairy tales and living their life by them. It's madness!!

The purpose of life is to ask the question "What is the purpose of life?".

Whatever you decide it to be, unless you want to propose a technical definition of "purpose" (e.g. a task it performs exceptionally well).

To evolution, the purpose is to survive and reproduce. :shock:

To reproduce and pass your genetics on to the next generation

To be happy

To exist

It is really just an anthropogenic and teleological question. Why does life need a purpose?

I think life is easy but always difficult. Cause we will grow up, and want to get something. Maybe enter a good high school, to get high score at class, or to find a better job. But life is so short, and we don;t know what will happen tomorrow. So, I sugget we'd better enjoy to live, to feel, and to love.

If life has a purpose is up to debate, after all, life itself was just a happy accident, what more is there to say?

Life does have a GOAL though, and that is to grow, survive, and reproduce. Not exactly a romantic endeavor (except for the reproducing part).
