WTF really? Purpose of death? The purpose of death is the end of life. Here, below I will give you photographic evidence of the after life.

Well, because death is immortality in that after you die you will be immortal in the minds of the people you were important to.

It's the only immortality everyone can agree on.

RE: Can you logically explain to me how death gives meaning to life?
Not just death, but fear in general. For something to have enough meaning to propel us into action, there must be a negative consequence to inaction. If we didn't fear our own death, we would have no reason to strive to live. If we did not fear the deaths of our family and friends, we would have no incentive to provide and care for them. Fear, in that regards, is an instinct which evolved, at least in part, to provide meaning.

That would have to be on a ginormous ass or in teeny tiny letters. Love George Bernard Shaw. One of my favorite playwrights.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Can you logically explain why there must be meaning?

..sigh...Just ignore him new guy. You will find out why you shouldn't listen to him soon enough.

Death gives meaning to life because of how short it makes life.

It means that you are finite and that once you are gone, there is a very high possible chance that you will remain gone forever.

An afterlife makes life completely meaningless as nothing you did 100 trillion years ago will matter to you. So why would anypony bother doing anything worth while for humanity, scientific advancement, social advancement or anything of that sort if you wont care about it in 100 trillion years? You cannot possibly imagine 100 trillion years. We have nothing that we could compare to that would give us an idea of what that would even remotely be like, or how we would feel after all that time had passed and having 100 trillion years of uninterrupted consciousness.

Once someone realizes this, life becomes meaningless on the time scale.

Take the Infinite time scale away and you are left with a final note. Which means that every single breath and every single second that ticks away is seconds ticking away that you might be wasting. Time that you could be doing something worth while, so that maybe one day, even if it was only for the next thousand years or so, people might still remember your name for something that you did.

That extended period of time gives us a sense of immortality that we had done something to change the world, or help influence it in our lives. If we actually lived to 100 trillion years, none of that past accomplishment wouldn't mean anything to us. But it DOES mean something to us while we are alive, finite, and still very much young. It is THAT in which we find meaning in our lives. The pursuit of doing something that will make people remember us and that will change our world for something better. So that future generations can continue our work or benefit from its fruits.

I mean really where's the self respect?

Those other guys who argued with us weren't real Christians, or their faith wasn't strong enough.

I'm sure if OP prays hard enough God will grant him the right typing skillz to open our sinful hearts and convince us that we need to atone for offending the creator, who apart from building galaxies and making sure Pluto follows the Right Path™, also carefully monitors us ape-descendants stuck on a random planet in a forgotten corner of the universe for how well we adhere to his rules about sex and obedience to our moral superiors, and of course we must tell all the other ape-descendants on this ball of rock about this bloke because he can't do that himself because reasons... then tortures those who don't get it right for eternity and implants those who *do* get it right with the sole desire to sing about how fucken wonderful the aforementioned creator is, also for eternity. Sounds legit Consider
