Before I start, I want to make it clear, this isnt a rant. Ats likes to think all rebuttles to comments are rants, but this is philosophy. I get ats, you hate certain people more than others, but get over it. Now, my first question is; doesnt everyone pass away? If this is fact, like the majority of the ever existing world has thought, the answer is yes! Now we live in a time of great technology and more travel than any other time in history, so we have this belief we are special, but we arent any different from those who lived many many centuries ago, so we are not special. I dont get why people believe such a thing. So what is it exactly, that one could accomplish before they die that actually makes them worth anything? I mean, when you pass, you pass, and majority of people, and what they did before hand, makes no difference. Some believe in heaven and hell, so they "hope" that their "good" deeds on earth get them to a better place, but we have no proof of such a place, and what is "good" and what is "bad", certainly eludes us, as for instance, the majority of suicide bombers "believe" they are doing "good". So you see my point there? So what make my life, or your life, or anyones worth anything right before, or after passing? Nothing. I dont get what is wrong about acknowledging that we are worthless. Now we enjoy ourselves, and create new life, and prolong the existence of man, but to what avail? They will bring more wars and new methods of hate. So why is it, majority cannot accept this fact until during their process of dying? To me it is something obvious, and to others, their ego fills them with nonesense, and deludes their thought process to reject that there is no point. Its not like 1 person will live the right life and bring everyone else into eternal bliss, that doesnt happen. We are all worthless. Why is it wrong to say that? And why dont people accept it long before the end? It is fact! Prove me wrong!

When you have a government you work for them and be part of the society and contribute. When someone commits a crime, he gets sentenced. And you believe that they have the right to do it. Think of God as THE government. May be this is how God works. May be he just sent us here for us to claim the rights and get back where we actually belong? Now does he have the right to punish us? Of course. If puny humans can punish others, then how do you expect God to not to do so except that the punishment is more of a stay in a material planet for just a 100 years?
I dont know why it doesn't make any sense. It absolutely makes sense. So life as he says could be worthless because we haven't found our path. Its worthless because we are not living it the right way.edit on 26-12-2011 by radkrish because: (no reason given)edit on 26-12-2011 by radkrish because: (no reason given)

Please dont get me wrong. I enjoy life! I love my wife, my son, my family, and pets. I think life is beautiful. But these are only worth something to me. Nothing that I can do will be worth something, after my mind ceases to acknowledge what it was I enjoyed and cherished.
