These laws automatically and without the need of a creator explain the existence of Nature and thus explain ours as well.
You could say, "Well, where did these laws come from?" I could then in turn ask you, "Where did your God come from?" If you answer that your God is infinite, then I could very well attribute the same to Nature. "But wait" I hear some shout from the peanut gallery, "What about the second law of thermodynamics?" Good question, once again refer to the above laws. Forget the infinite regression argument on both accounts. So, if I may, what is YOUR definition of existence?
and remember that by the protocols of science the easiest answer is the right answer.
The existence of a Creator is what would make the answer to you question very simple
The purpose of man's existence my fellow member is to make God smile and increase his family.

Wrong again randy, it's not your day is it?
And trolling threads? Is that what you call it when somebody disagrees with you?
Let me enlighten you on my beliefs to stop you repeatedly jumping to the wrong conclusion.
I don't consider death to be entering the unknown, I consider death to be the end. When my brain dies I will cease to exist, my body and my mind will no longer function. I don't live in fear like you do wondering if I will go to heaven or hell when I die. There is no heaven and hell, death is the end.
This is where atheism has an advantage over theism, we know that this life is our only chance so we don't waste time worshipping non existent gods, we live our lives instead. When your outlook on life is so clear it gives you a better focus on making the most of what you have.
This might be a sombre thought for you but that's life, pardon the pun.
