We are nothing but a complex conglomerate of electrochemical reactions that give us the common illusion of consciousness.
1. An erroneous perception of reality.
2. An erroneous concept or belief.
# The condition of being deceived by a false perception or belief.
# Something, such as a fantastic plan or desire, that causes an erroneous belief or perception.

As an evolutionist (need not go into this)
I believe that the blunt purpose of life, is to mate. Simple mate and enhance the human race, by pro-creating more and more humans.
As BT (bible thumpers) have told me, and what I use to believe, as a leader for four years for the youth group at church, is that the meaning of life, is solely, to bring more people the "Good News'', to show everyone that Jesus died for your sins, and to blah blah blah, live a happy life, while your at it?
The meaning of life, I can see some come up and say, "Oh well the meaning of life is to be good to your neighbor, and be honest and live a happy life". THAT IS NOT A MEANING! That is a way of life.
If the Meaning of life is to spread "The Gospel", is that really that great of a meaning.
All in all, i'm proposing a debatable thread. I wonder, if your God, Yahweh, Allah, Vishna, Whatever, has made us, why do you think he has made us.
Please leave out:
He/She/It needed company. I highly doubt, that a divine celestial all powerful being needed company, that by the way, was willing to banish it's company to eternal hell or whatever, is a honest answer, nor logical.
Does the way the bible, or quran (although I've never read it honestly) explain logically, and reasonably, a good reason for the meaning of life.
(I apologize for the jumping around in the OP, I have had numerous phone calls, and have tried to stay in one place, will edit if needed)
