RE: The Meaning
I voted "yes". The meaning of life is "yes".

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: The Meaning
My idea is the meaning of life for an atheist is freedom.

Now you can do something beautiful and wonderful, choose something for your self.

For example

Carl Sagan's idea was that were were star dust. Here as a way for the universe to know it's self.

Member of the Cult of Reason

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

The year I was born aurora? Are you saying the world revolves around me? =p

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

So I have been thinking for along time on this issue (and others) So my question to you is what is the meaning of life? is there a meaning to life? and one that has come to me after a bit of thought what is meaning?


The meaning of life is to give life meaning. - Ken Hudgins



A personal favorite of mine. Now if you mean a universal meaning, as in as set reason, I will have to say there is none. But to live to its fullest and to make others happy "yourself included" Is life's greatest gift Smile

RE: The Meaning
There is no meaning to life.
Life only exists because it exists.
We invented gods to support the illusion of meaning so that we could have meaning.
The gods are false; therefore meaning is false.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

RE: The Meaning
I do not think there is any. We can impact the people around us but it will fade as people die. We can impact history but as humanity disappears so will the meaning of that impact. We might, if we really try hard enough, impact the earth permanently but it will disappear when the earth dies. I would like to borrow from the movie "the bucket list". The two questions you should ask yourself when you search for purpose is: Will your life bring you joy with this purpose? Will it bring joy to others? If the answer to both questions is yes, then you have found a great purpose in life. But an inherent purpose or a universal meaning to life? no, we are as the animals and our lives are just a fraction of a moment when you look at the total sum of the universe. So if you're looking for meaning, find something that is meaningful to you and you are set.

RE: The Meaning
I will go out and argue that there is a meaning to life. It may not be predetermined in anyway, but in a rather simplistic sense, do we not all forge our own meanings and purposes for life? If not, why are any of you who say otherwise even here?
