RE: what is lifes purpose without god?
I have lots of purposes. Next up is planting the rest of the summer veggies in the garden. Then I am going to wash my bedding. After that, I will set out to get some work on the computer done. But the best purpose today is that I will grill some salmon for dinner.

These are my purposes today.

Life has whatever purpose you give it. Mine are little piddly things these days, but they are fun to pursue. You could make yourself some big purpose, like supporting a charity with money or action, feeding the poor, researching something that humanity hasn't figured out yet, inventing something you wish was available, rescuing abandoned animals, there is an infinite pool of purposes to choose from.

The purpose of life is whatever you make it.

And the one thing to take away from this is there ain't no purpose unless you make it. Wink

It's not much better if God exists. If God exists the only purpose a human being can have is to bring glory to God. Glory to God, when it comes to us, is had when we use our free will to return to God, which means rejecting our individual will and taking on the will of God instead. In other words, we use our free will to give up our free will. The trade off, of course, is that deep down that is the only thing that ever fulfills us or makes us happy.



Well, since Magnetic Resonance has proven the decision is made before we are aware of it, that one's in the crapper.





As for the rest, ...... "spoken like a true Depressive".

The purpose of life is to go surfing today, and be filled with unspeakable joy, slamming down the wave, knowing I'm alive.

As for the ridiculous notion that an ant of a creature, on a backwater planet, in a boring star system, in the boondocks of the galaxy, which is one of billions, (the star being 1 of 600 sextillion), is totally, utterly preposterous. It also raises the question of why that needy god would want "glory", from the likes of us, (whatever the hell "glory" is exactly...I know, it's one of those Southern preachy thingys...halleluia, amen). Is the god lacking in something ? If something can be "added" to the god, it's NOT infinite. Oops. And just exactly who's "watching" the glory being given. OMG. Don't these people think about ANYTHING before they drool shit ? Makes my head explode. Tongue BTW, that belongs on the "heavy depressive episopdes thread".

Surfs up.

Simply to have as much sex, drugs, and overall fun as possible, before you become worm food.

No that's not it. ... But go for it if you can't see nothing else. Wink

There is something else? The future of the human species or something? That seems rather grim if you ask me. Satan tells us to have fun, and that's all that matters.

Yes, there is a different way. That way realizes you ain't nothing but flyshit but somehow still manages to not be an asshole or a prick. That is Girly's way.

Stark likes Girly's way.

Stark also feels very odd speaking in the third person.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Girly, if you keep talking in the third person I have the perfect present for you (maybe for your 50th!).
