I heard someone put it like this. Before we are born we gestate in the womb and are aware of our surroundings, right? Then we are "born" to this "world" ( or whatever we call that today).
After gestating in this "womb" of self we will be born into the next world as well. This whole life that we think we know oh so much about? Is really just another womb from which we kick and turn, trying to figure out what is outside mommie's tummy.

Well, personally, i think the mystery of existence, or purpose of life, is to do the will of God, directly or indirectly, willingly or unwillingly. I think everything has been planned out. I think that predestination and free-will TECHNICALLY exist.
I believe the perception of free-will is merely an illusion; sure you can choose to do whatever you want, but, God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. He knows everything from beginning to end, we are just experiencing from x to y. According to that logic, God KNOWS whatever choice that we take of the infinite possibilities there are, and knows what the outcome will be, therefore stringing another set of choices and consequences. So technically, everything in life has been planned, each and every second, because He just knows. I think that's why Christ puts so much emphasis on loving your neighbors and your enemies. Ever watched the movie Paying It Forward?

instead i choose to taunt you all for your limited understanding of life's mysteries. you all suck. are eternal stupid, ignorant hypocritical a-holes who think because u cant see something it isnt there, yet never took the time to search. good on you. envy those who accomplish understanding. but who laughs last laughs best. doubt me if you will.. only adds more to show that you dont know jack!edit on 5-6-2012 by 0mage because: (no reason given)
