    I personally don't believe that there is a purpose. I think i'm in the state of nihilism like the one I talked about in my other thread. What do you guys think is the purpose of life? or is there one at all?

    I believe you make your own purpose, mine however lacks purpose as i have never thought about making a purpose. i suppose i could make it to struggle on and hope everything works out eventually, or at least hang about and see how messed up it will get.

    I think it is to love. Any purpose that is not loving and does not lead to love, well why pursue it?

    Guiltless pleasure. Not hedonism, but pleasure without hurting others.

    Why do my pets exist?
    Why do trees and plants exist?
    No idea. But I'm glad they do.

    I can only think of two possibilities:

    1) Your purpose in life is whatever you want. If you believe your purpose of life is to do "x", then that's your purpose.

    2) There's some purpose our creator (if there is one), set up for us. This would make #1 incorrect, and any purpose you set up for yourself, is an illusion. (Unless your purpose you decided on, happened to be the same our creator set up for us)

    Saying "there is no purpose", is incorrect, because see #1. Only time this could be correct if you only apply it to yourself.

    ROFL nice one! :laugh:

    I beliave in EVOLUTION and by that theory it goes that way:
    if you are a man your purpose is to have as much sex as possible and to have as many babys as posible.
    if you are a woman, to find a healthy strong and supportive guy so that he will rise your kids in a good and healthy envoirment.

    Its as simple as that, we must make sure human spieces servive
    and all we should care about is to make and rise kids for the sake of
    feauture genorations. If you dont think its right look around you, animals
    plants and every singel life form on earth cares only about reproduction!
    and as part of this life we are the same!

    Is there really one? I wasn't born with an instruction booklet. As far as I'm concerned there isn't one. I'm here, though, so I might as well make the best with what I've got.

    no purpose, we're here by accident, we just 'happened' but we can have purpose within our lives which is the only important purpose.
