i don't feel that it is a purposeless existence, i exist to make myself happy. i enjoy my life to fullest without having to worry about whether i am
pleasing some make believe bearded figure in the clouds, or if i am serving the purposes of some higher being.
plain and simple, im not saying you are wrong if you believe that we have some kind of purpose, im simply saying that my opinion on the matter is
that, we are the outcome of random events, and that there was no force in particular that brought us around, and we have no particular purpose, other
than to survive, like every other animal on thid planet, or universe for that matter
IMO, trying to put a purpose on your life is a bit self centered. i mean, i personally believe we are not alone in the universe, so why is it that we
absolutely HAVE to have some kind of reason for existing?
it's plain selfish to think that there is one being, or entity, or whatever you want to call it, somewhere out there that, brought us around, and us
alone. and that he loves us, and us alone. it's just silly stuff that people who can't comprehend that things are random and chaotic and we just
happen to be the product of very random events that came together, and agaisnt great odds we popped up.
i believe that our purpose if we were to have one, would to be pro-create and expand. and survive, like all species want to do. i don't buy into this
idea that someone or something created us because they had some great plan in mind. that is the stuff for people who can't grasp reality, and i
don't mean this in an offensive manner, there is A LOT out there, i mean to be intellectually honest here, there is most likely and infinite amount
of stuff, and things out there. and it is very hard to understand, because Humans do not deal well with that kind of stuff. we want to be able to put
a number, or a meaning, or some kind of formula to everyting. when there simply isn't an answer, or at least and answer that people want to hear,
i hope that kind of clears things up a bit.
