To duplicate our species to the end of the universe and to destroy that which gets in our way. But most people will tell you that theres is none and that 'you have to make your own meaning' blah blah blah...

The meaning of life for me is to leave my mark on the world, no matter how small. If you do something significant that people learn about in other generations, then in a sense you've become immortalized.

Being a Christian, I gotta say that the meaning of life is to glorify God. Then die, and spend eternity with Him. :]

To live it and enjoy it, really.

Since I'm not religious or anything, I don't believe that I have any 'bigger duties to fulfill' or anything like that. I just do what I have to to stay alive and make it fun for myself. If I sit around worrying about why I'm here and getting myself all stressed out over what the point of it all is, I'd be wasting a lot of time I could be using to eat fried ice cream or draw pictures or plant trees. That's why I don't worry about it much. :]

Blast. So much for being able to make a Hitchhiker's Guide reference.

Seriously, it is what you make of it. I personally think that life really has no overall point until the person living it comes along and gives it a meaning. Technically, one could say that means that life has no point, but really, it just means life is a sheet of paper just waiting for someone to come along and use it. Or something like that.

So, if you want it to have no meaning, then it has no meaning. If you want it to be about making babies and dying, then it's about making babies and dying. Humanity as a whole will never agree on what exactly life means, so they'll all essentially go out and fulfill their lives differently. Some will procreate like there's no tomorrow and die feeling they've lived a fruitful (no pun intended) life. Others will never have children but climb mountains, find the cure to the common cold, and do other self-fulfilling stuff, and they'll die feeling they've lived a fruitful life. Others might spend their entire lives doing nothing but living for God, and when they die, they'll think they've lived a fruitful life. Others might do nothing at all but slack off and feel good about themselves, and when they die, they're probably not going to look back on their lives and say they wish they could've done something more. Since all of these people die feeling as if they've fulfilled their lives, then maybe all that means is, literally, there is no right answer past it's what you make it.

...In other words, the meaning of life is exactly what dribbly says is a pile of steaming bull. But it works for me. *thumbs up*

Whatever you want it to be. People will give you different answers and that's because there is no definitive answer. If you want the meaning of your life to be to someday go to Mexico or any other random thing then that's what the meaning of your life is. Only you know what the meaning of your life is. The meaning of mine and the meaning of some one else's are different. If you think too much into it you will soon find yourself asking question after question and never finding the right answer. That's because only you know the answer to your particular life and no one else can answer it for you. Again, if you think too much into it and want to know what the meaning of life is in general then you'll never find it because no one knows. The scientific meaning is to live, reproduce, and die. That's the striaght to the point answer to the meaning of life in general, if you want a deep and profound answer you won't find it because it doesn't exist, at least not generally.

the meaning of life... meaning.. life... we all have heard these word together many times, haven't we? and why? 'cuz noone can give you the reason of life. they just try. do they answer wrong? NO. do they answer right? NO. its "half correct". everything we do is the meaning of our life. if you eat some potatoes, then thats part of the meaning of your life.
however, how can i be sure? its impossible to be sure of anything. I-M-P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E.
maybe, the meaning of life is to discover the meaning of life. so, we all have discovered it...? just a theory...
altough i cant give you the exact and correct meaning of life, heres a "pearl of knowledge", that my friend has created:
"Don't waste your life. It's too short for it. Also, don't wait for something. It's too long for it. Enjoy your stay in this world. Make friends, have fun, make and reach your own goals. But, most of all, don't worry doing anything. The true is that you have to enjoy! Have a good life!"

I agree with it - personally, and many will have the right to disagree, I don't think there is a pre-determined meaning to our existence. Any meaning is purely self-made, and thus I live to fufill whatever I like regardless of why I'm here... I don't think there is a reason.

Actually, i Know what the meaning of life is...

The property or quality that distinguishes living organisms from dead organisms and inanimate matter, manifested in functions such as metabolism, growth, reproduction, and response to stimuli or adaptation to the environment originating from within the organism.
The characteristic state or condition of a living organism.
Living organisms considered as a group: plant life; marine life.
A living being, especially a person: an earthquake that claimed hundreds of lives.
The physical, mental, and spiritual experiences that constitute existence: the artistic life of a writer.

The interval of time between birth and death: She led a good, long life.
The interval of time between one's birth and the present: has had hay fever all his life.
A particular segment of one's life: my adolescent life.
The period from an occurrence until death: elected for life; paralyzed for life.
Slang. A sentence of imprisonment lasting till death.
The time for which something exists or functions: the useful life of a car.
A spiritual state regarded as a transcending of corporeal death.
An account of a person's life; a biography.
Human existence, relationships, or activity in general: real life; everyday life.

Biologically, it's the rather depressing fact that it is to reproduce and die. However, we as a species have evolved (or, if you like, were created) to do things above the simple, primitive instinct level. As such, the broadest possible meaning is to "be happy". This extends across multiple frontiers: for those who wish to help others, or act in the will of their god, or accumulate possessions, or enrich their minds, they all derive happiness from these activities. As contradictory as it may seem, even people who live to be miserable (not people who are genuinely depressed) derive a satisfaction of sorts from doing so.

The meaning of life..

To start things off, we must believe everything happens for a reason. Yes, that sounds sooo cheesy, but think about it for a moment. The littlest things that happen to you do have some meaning behind them. You were used and lied to so that you could grow to truly understand what "unconditional love" is. You went through disease to find that the smallest things in life are often taken for granted. You saw someone suffer to realize that maybe your life isn't really as terrible as you pretend it is.

After thirteen years, I've come to this conclusion: Without pain there would be no happiness. Without hate there would be no love. People who are spoiled by everyone always adoring them and treating them like they're a god or goddess will be disappointed later in life when someone shows them what it means to be hated.

That was... the crappiest explanation of life ever, but hey, that's how I think. No one said you had to feel that way ;3

The only way complex molecules ever managed to survive and become cells is because in some way they attained the simple purpose of self-sustenance. (I can only assume self-expansion is a consequence or cause of this. One could say that surplus effort towards self-sustenance is self-expansion.) Thus the ultimate meaning of life is that which consciously sustains itself, and the purpose of life is self-conservation and furthering of the race (which is really a sub-purpose of the main meaning). Before us, things existed and ceased to exist without a care or effort.

I don't know why people threw the concept of souls into all this.

Biologically, it's the rather depressing fact that it is to reproduce and die. However, we as a species have evolved (or, if you like, were created) to do things above the simple, primitive instinct level. As such, the broadest possible meaning is to "be happy". This extends across multiple frontiers: for those who wish to help others, or act in the will of their god, or accumulate possessions, or enrich their minds, they all derive happiness from these activities. As contradictory as it may seem, even people who live to be miserable (not people who are genuinely depressed) derive a satisfaction of sorts from doing so.

But isn't it so that happiness finds its root in (as I said) self-sustenance? The basic cause of happiness is benefit to the body, the advanced cause is benefit to the psyche. It can't be seen as an elemental concept of life, since in the cases of drug addicts it's actually used to somewhat nihilistic meaninglessness.

I see your point, and what you say makes total sense. Since happiness, as you correctly point out is caused by benefits to the body and psyche, a more accurate description would be "the pursuit of happiness", I think.

Actually pain and happiness are not just emotions but physiological responses and your concept is on an impossible situation that won't ever occur.

Don't you mean Mohammed or Zeus? I guess that means the majority of mankind fails at life. lulz.

It would be flawed to say that an emotion or engaging a mental process is the meaning of life, because obviously humans are not the only living thing on this planet. Plants, fungi, microorganisms, fish and invertebrates have little or no coordination over their actions and are unable to have normal human-like cognitions.

I suppose, then, the very basic root of happiness I was talking about would do? All the creatures you referred to can fail or flourish at self-sustenance.

In my opinion, life is somewhat like a challenge, a dare. We face hurdles and obstacles which we should try and cross, instead of chickening out.

I believe we should enjoy life in the fullest, by taking it head on. Enjoying life, facing sorrows bravely. That's what it's all about.

That sounds more like a description of life to me... =|

I think the meaning of life is just an opinion.

My opinion is: to learn and then to teach, and to reduce the amount of suffering in one's own life (yeah, very jolly). Nothing good in life lasts, and that includes life itself; that leads to the deaths of loved ones, which leads to grief and suffering. All in all, the more we grow attatched to something, the more we try to hold onto it, and the more we grieve. We need to be more accepting of the way things are in life so that we are less affected when something good ends, and when that good is still existing we should enjoy it to the fullest, but at the same time realising and accepting the fact that it won't last forever (without depressing ourselves over it either :\). That, in turn, reduces suffering. In other words, the meaning of life is to enjoy it as much as we possibly can, and to teach and help others to do the same =D And IMO, birth and death are important experiences of life, not the meaning of it.

I don't know if you've noticed, but humans are the only animals who don't seem to realise that... :\

Humans are interesting in that they understand the concept of good and evil. This dates back to the times of Adam and Eve, who according to the Bible commited the original sin. Before that point, they only knew goodness, as it was all that existed. However, when Satan tempted them to sin, he offered them "the knowledge of God", which is the ability to discern between good and evil. The only way they could have that knowledge was to sin by disobeying God, which is ironic because that was the only way evil could exist in the first place.

So when Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge, two things happened: evil entered the world through their sin, and they recognized that evil with their newfound knowledge. Humanity was basically doomed from that point onward, as the very nature of sin and evil causes death and destruction and a conglomeration of...well...evil things. The only way to atone for sin at that point was to sacrifice things such as animals or crops and the like.

Jump forward a couple thousand years, and Jesus is born. He was a normal human child, except he was also the physical embodiment of God. He led a blameless life, and then was sacrificed on the cross. At that moment, he shouldered the evil in the world, taking it all upon himself. Then he came back to life three days later, after having payed the price for humanity's sin, which as I said before is death. In a way, he was the ultimate sacrifice, the final atonement for humanity's evil.

So what is the meaning of life, then? It is to recognize Jesus as our savior, as the one that payed the price for our sin, taking our place in death. If we acknowledge that he died for us, we show that we understand that his sacrifice allows us to live forever, since death is no longer a problem. Then we tell others about Jesus, because we want them to know that their sins are covered, that they do not need to fear death anymore. Finally, we follow the will of God, admitting that his knowledge is superior to our own for one simple reason: humanity failed in resisting sin (Adam and Eve), and God did not (Jesus). That and he made the universe, so he pretty much knows everything.

That's my take. Make of it what you will.

The meaning of life - IMO - is to be happy even through the hardest of times and over come any challenge. Then we will be loved and have a family and home and still live it to it's fullest. Then die but know you had a good time on earth - and probly have a better one in heaven :D -

My interperatation of the word "meaning" means that the purpose was pre-determined in an attempt to fulfill a task or complete a function. So to me, should life have a meaning, translate as that we are here to fulfill a role created by a higher purpose who created life itself- What i can only describe as, for a god or gods. However, the only scale of power we have is that which we have created ourselves. For all we know the higher powers in which we hypothesise could all be a ruse created by, for want of a better example, the creator of an elaborate computer program in which we are generated, eg the matrix. (Urgh, i hate that film and being forced to refer to it.)

In short: For life to have meaning would imply we were created for a specific pupose by something above ourselves. And be "we" i mean all life, not just humanity.

I believe the contrary. I believe that we are a random occurence void of any pre-determined purpose.

Ok......That is certainly original and the one about the meaning of life being 42 was amusing I must say.

You all have very intersting opinions but I belive that life has a predefined meaning beacuse God has a special purpose for everyone Be it a huge effect that will mark history for all time or something small such as making someone elses life happy.

By fufiling this purpose and doing the right thing we gain entrance to heaven
If you do wrong things (I think we do our predefined purpose sometimes without even realising it) but If you are evil you go to hell and well....Have a horible time until the day of judgement. If you are neither good or evil you go to purgatory.

That said, I should tell you that the Bible itself tells us that no works can get us into heaven. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one goes to My Father, save by me." This means that the only way into heaven is by trusting Him. What we do doesn't matter in this respect. Also, the Bible gives no evidence that purgatory exists, but gives plenty that it doesn't. I'll tell you more about that later, if you like. This thread isn't the place for it.

I'm not insulting them or their beliefs. I'm merely stating that the fact that people can be so hopeless when there's obviously hope there to be had is sickening.


Actually calling people "sickening" and "hopeless" because they don't believe the same thing is as you is quite offensive in my opinion.
Also stating your belief as factual, knowing that others will not share it for obvious reasons, is somewhat queryable.



Going back on topic...
If all life on earth stopped, such as due to a catastrophe of most epic proportions, then there would be no one remaining to care, (unless aliens found it). Would there be no 'meaning of life'?

My belief is:
To praise God's creation. To love and gloryfiy the name of the Loving Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, for the everything he's done and doing for for us.

"For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son that who ever believes in him should not perish but have ever lasting life." John 3:16 (New King James Version)

Fantastic win on levels untold.


Being pretty kinda religious, I could see this working for a lot of people, but I'm more willing to believe that every person has the an individual meaning to their own life.

I believe God the Father has a plan for every one of us.

To me the meaning of life is to live, let live and enjoy life.

Forty three, you have to add one for elitism.

As for the meaning of life, there isn't one. Why must there be a reason behind anything, hm?Everything has a reason, just because you can't figure it out that doesn't mean there is no reason. I wouldn't kick my friend for no reason, would I? (Unless I am a xD). Also that would be a reason to kick him.

but if you can't believe historical fact,

...What historical fact?

Regarding the concept of hope existing in the world, yes, there is, but it's not necessarily Jesus Christ. Hope is a state of mind, not an attainable abstract. To have hope, one must actually convince himself that there is a reason to have hope. Hope can be defined as anything, really -- the confidence of achieving one's own goals or the will to live, among other things (including, yes, faith). You can have hope and not be Christian, and possibly, having hope kept people together in historical times of tribulations. On the other hand, just having hope and never actually doing anything with it really doesn't work either. It's events that make history, not the abstract.

Regarding the idea that Christian philosophy is the meaning of life, for Christians, yes. Otherwise, well, roughly 1.8 billion Muslims and over 900 million Hindus can't be all wrong. (Really, when you look at it, Christians are outnumbered by the collection of the other religious entities in the world, and Catholics are only a percentage of Christians. To state that Christianity -- or any other faith, for that matter -- is the only religion automatically outcasts the majority of the rest of the world. That just doesn't seem right to me. It's not my place to say that many people are wrong. Especially since the pagans were here first.)

Actually, yes, they can. The only reason we Christians are outnumbered is human stupidity. *looks at Jaimes* Christianity revolves around the fact that Christ died on the cross, came back three days later, and was seen by hundreds of people. If you can disprove that, we've got nothing, and we are to be pitied above all.

But it can't be disproven. The government back then couldn't produce the body; it was being used at the time. And it certainly can't be disproven now. Jaimes is really just your stereotypical human. I can declare several insults, and all would befit him well, but I already have him blocked, so there's really no point. If he wants to poke fun at us now, fine, because I know for a fact we'll have the last laugh.

Actually, yes, they can. The only reason we Christians are outnumbered is human stupidity.

...So, basically, billions upon billions of people are automatically idiotic because they don't share your spiritual beliefs?

Personally, I believe that a lot of the Bible and Biblical accounts should be taken with a grain of salt. There's no actual evidence that disproves that it happened, yes, but there's none that proves that it did happen. Keep in mind that when it comes to religion, witness testimony back then tended to say a lot of different things. For example, one of the stories of the Greek god Dionysus claims that the god actually appeared before an entire city and, when he was denied as being a god, triggered a frenzy among the women of the city that eventually led to a mass murder. There's no actual evidence that it happened, but there's nothing to say that women weren't actually influenced by a mysterious young man into the brutal killing of at least one Greek. Likewise, the stories of the trials of Hercules is repeated numerous times throughout Greek literature and art, implying that there was actual belief and witnesses to his pursuits.

What I'm saying is that just because the New Testament said something happened doesn't mean it literally happened. After all, we're talking about the Bible here. Its predecessor and basis stated that the world was created in six days and that we're all the result of massive in-breeding and holy incest. (If it didn't happen with Adam and Eve's children, it happened with Noah and his family.)

Not to mention the government back then couldn't provide much of anything anyway. Do you really think that Jesus Christ was the only body an ancient government ever lost? Heck, even contemporary governments sucked at keeping track of bodies. (To this day, European and American governments can't figure out what happened to Thomas Paine.)

However, I'd like to say that I respect you that you follow those beliefs with the conviction that you do and that I'm not out to convince you to change them. The reason why I'm bothering to reply now is because, frankly, you're basically calling me an idiot (and attempting to use information based on religious speculation to back it up), which I honestly don't feel comfortable with and would like an apology for. To put it simply, I was raised a Jew and am currently a Deist. Therefore, I have not, nor have I ever, believed in the Christian doctrine. But that's fine, and I won't say that you're absolutely wrong for believing what you do. What I am saying is that it's insulting that you are right now attempting to press your beliefs onto others -- even if you're not entirely conscious of it -- by essentially stating that everything else is simply the result of human stupidity. Judaism, Deism, and every other religious or philosophical mindset are all perfectly valid forms of faith (with their own bases in historical fact, if we follow the same brand of logic as you've just applied). If you wish to declare them otherwise, please do so on a board for Christianity, where you're less likely to insult a number of its members. Otherwise, if you do it here, while you think you're aiming your comments at one person, another person could feel hurt because you're essentially stating that the beliefs that they've built their entire lives on are completely moronic. It's like telling you that Jesus Christ never existed and backing it up with quotations from another holy book. You're not going to feel that wonderful after that, and neither do the people who believe in X religion.

I'm not sure I like this side to you unlimited. As it has already been said, the disbelief of something you feel strongly about does not account to stupidity. I admire people like you who can uphold and adhere to a way of life, i wish I had that discipline myself. But that quote was ignorant to say the least.

Also, I fail to see how the inability to disprove something also makes it reasonable fact. For want of a better example, it cannot be disproven that I wore red socks today, yet the lack of evidence against it does not constitute to it being an acceptable theory. Out of interest, which branch of Christianity would you catergorise yourself into?

Speaking as a fellow Christian, I think that you are making the rest of us look awfully arrogant. While it is quite Christian to believe that we are correct, it is quite unchristian to state that everyone else is wrong because of stupidity. Have you ever heard the story of the good Samaritan? We should be accepting of and kind to all other peoples and creeds. Do you think that Jesus really wants you to insult those who do not believe that he is the son of God? If you wish to convince others to be Christian, do it by following Christ's words and actions.

I'm going to have to agree with this. It usually takes someone their whole life to discover why they're here, what their purposes are, and what goals they have to fulfill in order to live a successful life and then discover why they are who they are because everything in life has a purpose.

Actually, the major reason a lot of people decide not to follow Christianity is because they are often attacked by people claiming to be of that religion, like you just did. We as Christians need to turn ourselves into living examples of what values our faith holds dear. That means not attacking other beliefs, not being prejudiced, and not trying to force others to see our way. God gave people free will...who are we to try to take it from others or degrade them for using it?

The very extent to which we should go is to share the good news of Christ. We do not tell people that they must believe it, because ultimately, that's their decision.

Simple. In my opinion the meaning of life is for you to find your reason to live, and live on.
Life doesn't really have a meaning of its own, you need to create your own "meaning of life" and your reason to live.
You need to say for yourself stuff like "I was born to be a rock star" or "I was born to live with the person I love". You can choose anything you want and live for it. You may succeed or not, but the meaning of the battle you lost, still remains.

That's just it, in my opinion.
It's pretty simple.

Life has many meanings, to define one is to limit. We make our own meanings individually, as you can see from the countless amounts of different answers in this thread made by different people. The question is, what are YOU meaning to do with life?

iRaw-x, many people consider it a goal in their life to leave a mark in what they do to be remembered by. Like musicians make music hopeful that their songs will live on as long as themselves. It doesnt have to be this though. It can be something like being remembered for the type of person you were as well as your achievements.

We have been given a life, no matter what source we think it has come from or how it has happened, and it is only natural to question this. But while we do, the life we have is ticking by, so might as well make the most of it and get out there and do stuff! It's good to have some sort of plan that you want to do. Many magnetize to those with goals. People find this quite attractive, you know... ;)

It is impossible to tell what the meaning of life is due to the Chaos Theory. The Butterfly theory too. The fact is, a single atom hitting another can change almost anything, if that happened but something went back and stopped it, things could happen many years from then just upon that impact. Therefore, almost any tiny outside interference could also change something's meaning and purpose, such as life. Everything as we know it could be different if a small breeze didn't occur 50,000 years ago, blowing seeds from a tree towards someplace.

Life, like Pokemon, is a great sandbox game. It's up to you, man...

I'll lay the meaning of life out, plain and simple:

"Look both ways before crossing the street and then pay your local staff admin a dollar."

I think it's well... love. IMO it's about doing the things, being with the people, that you love. Of course there are things you must do to for this to happen.

No, no. The meaning of life is to CREATE memories for yourself and others. Have you seen the movie Final Fantasy? Mwehehe... anyway, they believe every person collects memories and experiences for the earth soul, Gaia. Well..... I'm not saying I belive in Gaia, heh. But I think we're supposed to enjoy ourselves as much as we can, no matter if we're born in Africa or Sweden. Nobody's life is the same as another's. We should give ourselves a great time, find somebody to love, make children, and die happy.

Of course, I'm never going to die. I'm immortal. Mwah.

The meaning of life is to live the best life you can (not religiously: I mean making money, getting power, and having fun), then die, hopefully leaving your mark on the world, and if not... there's always more people...

I feel life has a different 'meaning' for everyone. Some may see it as a chance to have fun and live for the moment, while others may feel that they should try and live a long, clean life. I mostly try to mix the two; have fun, but don't overdue it.

I know what you mean, I want to have fun in life and be successful etc... but I don't want to be a drug addict or bad person. And I'm an atheist so there's no religious factors forcing me to this decision.

the meaning of life for me is to do as well as you can in this life, to follow your heart and search your happiness and the happiness of those around you, both in balance, in my opinion, what religions dictate about what we're here to do is not correct since religions were created by people, people with opinions, however, several religions contain a lot of knowlegde that can be used to achieve your goal^^

The meaning of life is to find happieness and make new friends. Just to enjoy your life.There is always the ''Life is too short'' part. So a happieness life leads to ''Happieness 4ever''

The meaning of life? We'll duplicate and have some great experiences and adventures in our life. After we die, we will reincarnate and it will be the same. It is called "Cycle of Time".

Anybody say "42" yet?

Personally, I believe this quote sums 'the meaning of life' (although I don't believe in life having a set point, or meaning) well: "The purpose of life is a life of purpose."

In my opnion....Everyone has their own meaning of life, we are all here for a reason and eventually it must be fulfilled! It could be helping someone, saving someone, saving the world (Copyright from PMD2 and PMD1 haha!) or something else!

the bitter end.

The meaning of life. . .well, I have three theories

1. to make everything and everyone equal, yet us humans have been dumber than we think we are and decided to kill all the random animals on this planet
2. we're in a video game, something like the sims
3. we were created for all the gods(God, the Greek gods, Egyptian gods, etc.)amusement

There was no such report! :(

Anyway, this topic pretty much died again after being revived once before, so there's no point leaving it open again.
