How about you atheists folks who had religious upbringings.

Did your parents tell you they had children because God commanded it?

In answer to your question? Or as part of religious instruction?

At what age? Did it even come up?

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

My existence has the purpose I choose to give it. I'm an adult and don't need to be told what my purpose is.

I suggest you grow up and find a purpose.
Take it easy Chas. You can think you decide what you're purpose is all you want. It doesn't mean you can dictate the future of humanity. The fact that we all ponder the question is the point you are only corroborating with your own statement. If we are to be grown up, we should not be hypocritical in our reasoning.

You tell them they were an accident like many other people.

Or be like my father who grew up in a farm community and would say he had kids so they can do household chores for him.

what is god or what is religion is smthg very subjective that doesnt matter at all to any individual being

u cant get to my clear opinion and words to force urs upon

keep ur dirty will about god to urself and assume it alone by making a clear post for

u have no business with others words about such a subject that are responsable of absolute negative force on all rights, others words are only pointing their writer presence, never u nor ur god ways by using any else right to make itself more present instead of the true present

fuck u and ur god

as if it is not clear that i absolutely hate that absolute most evil shit one that exist

how dare u force to deform my free opinion right, which is very deep so true

and call urself piece of shit evil moral power of love, making benefit to all

what benefit are u making even to urself piece of shit

Try this experiment. Take ten seconds now and mediate on your own death, those you will leave behind, and what you'd want people to put on your tombstone.

If you are a normal person (atheist, Christian, no matter) you should have a heightened sense of your own mortality and also a positive resolve to blaze a trail in this world.

Therefore, death has meaning. Yet atheists have told me that an omnipotent god should have not allowed death in the universe at all. Hmmm....

RE: How will you explain to your children...
u r proving the evil u r here alone piece of shit

as if watching somebody death is ur way of getting to live

or as if killing someone value is getting a valuable life

which exhibit ur premise being a fancy piece of shit

death is nothing when true existence is the living objective always

so piece of shit it is u the one to b shown dying live while shouting nonsense in all senses when the only present is a living

u r the nothing by force piece of shit u wont witness anything but that piece of shit

when i say truth and nothing both objective it clearly mean ur end piece of shit liars

as if such shit that believe being in opposite dimension of truth as possible, could end more existing then a true living

or that u can ever isolate a freedom so nothing really from truth

monster keep enjoying thinking the death of everyone around in most criminal ways, u r not getting to see but that till it would happen through u too, the way to force u accepting else existence of the same free positive will then urs

and no shitty there is no god, only truth existence and obvious all kind of shit ones livings of others shit and shit that initially are the shit unamed that u worship since it is ur base so home u think
it is gonna fuck u more then u ever can get, so enjoy

Oh look, Deepak Chopra has visited the forums! Oh wait... Blink

Death has meaning because we give it meaning, 'meaning' is not an intrinsic property of death. We can also find meaning in our lives, and we define what is meaningful and what is not. For myself, owning and operating a motorcycle carries a lot of meaning for me, but that's not an opinion everyone else shares. How funny it is then that you posit a god who could have made us immortal, giving us infinite lives to do meaningful things in, but instead created us. With infinite lives we could literally explore the vastness of the cosmos that you believe your god created. Once again PJ, your lack of imagination is staggering. Drinking Beverage

RE: How will you explain to your children...
it is the evil who fancy on forcing a concept of positive means to nothing or less

dying is a right as nothing is but only bc positive superiority is what exist

while dying is not being killed morons

which is obvious evil ways of reversing facts existing knowledge for absolute abuse

objectively, what is killed is shown only from what its killer is positive and acting believeing being superior relatively
so nothing about the thing step on whatever it is of true value alone

and when lies are clearly objective, then expect the worse forever on u morons
