Is that the purpose of life?

Are we really created just so we can be thankful?

We've gone to the moon. We've understood how it all began. We've done (as a species, personally I've been a dead weight) brilliant things.

Is our goal just to be a lap dog?

I sometimes jokingly refer to myself as a "Saganist"

Fair enough.

We have a plausible idea of how it began that matches up with the observable universe.

To me the purpose of life is to learn about and make use of and enjoy a universe created for me. Why did I get a universe?
Because I am loved.

That's not my goal. I don't care about some carpenter's son who lived 2000 years ago. I care about my life and what I can accomplish.

Yes, I think at least that is where we need to start to get to where we want to go, which is...we do not know.

Just be thankful

Life is continuum. In continuum things can be greater or lesser, as they can vary. But continuum is an elaborate illusion, a hologram, reality is unmovable, static. Therefore we can observe the paradox that life, as continuum has a purpose, yet existence as a static value, has not. The major question is how each being precept itself. The égrégore of humankind wants you to live. It seeds and orchestrates all agendas in that direction. Yet, Chuck Norris wants you to exist(pun intended).

I love the idea, but it's a hypothesis (Gotta be careful saying theory round here) without evidence.

Would it be possible to prove it?

It's better than some things people "magically accept as truth".

Interesting. That brings up multiple questions but I think the most important one is...
Do you deserve to be loved?

I'm not saying you don't deserve it, I'm curious to why you think think you do deserve it.

Have you earned it I guess is the question.

in an infinite or expanding universe anything is plausible, even the thing you speak against

If you haven't watched Carl Sagans Cosmos I can't recommend it enough.

This is part one, it's a long series, but it's a very poetic and spiritually moving explanation of our current understanding of the cosmos and our place within it.

In an infinite universe a finite universe is not plausible.

Within that infinite universe there could be many finite universes.

Sagan rocks, but I'm 34 so missed most of him. He's Bill Russell to me.

I did watch until I realised I already watched tho. Cheers for the link.

This is just going semantics but isn't the universe by definition, everything?
Finite universes within an infinite universe would require changing definitions of universe.

The scientific method is my bible. If I can not measure and quantify it, it is BS until proven otherwise.

But there is so much that science has not figured out yet, aren't you cutting yourself a little short there?

Science is great and wonderful, however, so is creativity and imagination.
