Do you believe people are born with a purpose in life to fulfill? If so, what do you think yours is?

I wish I could say I do with this inspiring message on how amazing life is and how there's so much more behind it than science, but I don't think so. We're here because our parents had sex. We aren't born with a purpose in life, we create our own.

Everyone writes their own destiny. How well everything turns out depends on how you are with the pen. Just don't be stupid and pour ink over everything.

Perhaps one doesn't discover their purpose immediately, but I surely think everyone is born with one. Even if they discover that purpose late in their life.

I would really hate to think that anybody is born with a specific purpose. It would mean we're essentially will less cogs in a giant machine, just turning like German clockwork. I believe everybody is completely free to pursue whatever they wish to pursue.

Unless you Asian. Then you become doctor.

No one is born with a purpose. Purpose is built by the person themselves.

Purpose however I believe is important for a person for them to stay focused and feel fulfillment within themselves.

I think everyone have a purpose, and I think purpose are not coming by itself, everyone have to find and search it in order to find one, and will eventually find it someday.

And so far my purpose is to be more friendly, to inspire people to do better and to becoming better as well.

I don't think anybody is born with some special purpose. We set our own goals and we choose our own purpose(s). If anything I guess it is the purpose of all people to find a purpose for their lives.

If we were to believe everyone has a purpose set by some all-seeing universal power then what is the purpose of children born in third world countries, to be drafted into slave labour, starve to death and live in squalor? Assuming a god-like force like this does exist then it clearly has no interest in intervening in human created moral tragedies. Or that is the bs purpose of those people as to be inferior, justified by people wanting to commit genocide. It's all human created. I can't answer if there is a god because how do I know how the universe even came into existence? But I don't think our life is set out on rails for us, I think we have some choice as to what actions we take, since we can't predict the future it can be blind choice but it's there

Right now it looks like my purpose in life is to suffer in misery until death. Oh wait, I chose this! I can trace back the conscious choices that lead to my predicament, I haven't made any better ones so I guess I want this? But at least the option is there for other people to improve their lives. Unless you're a starving African baby, bad luck

Nah, I used to think so. Not anymore, I think that we all choose our own destinies. Even princes can choose not to be kings.

Wouldn't this topic be more suitable in the Discussions & Debates section?

Knowing whether or not you are born with a purpose depends on whether or not we prove the existence of God. If he's real, then we're all served as pawns of his little game of life, whether it's good or bad (I fear that my purpose could scale into the bad side any moment). If he's not real, then our lives are completely meaningless and have no purpose, even the idea of free will and morality is only a man-made structure, so it technically doesn't exist.

I reckon we all have a purpose in life. Like abolishing slavery, stopping mass murderers and making great breakthroughs with science.

I believe mine is to set the world record for eating about two thousand cheese toasties in under a minute. C:

Depends on what you mean by purpose. I don't really buy into the idea that we're all born with a pre prescribed purpose, because that implies that we shouldn't do anything else, or that if we don't fulfill that purpose, we're doing something wrong. For example, suppose my purpose that I was born to do is to be a doctor. But what if I want to be a cook instead? I (like everyone else, IMO) am every bit as capable of being a good cook as I am at being a good doctor. I think people are free to write their own destiny and excelling at it, depending on how hard they work.

The thing about life is we are here for a reason, but we will never understand life or our purpose in life. Nobody on this planet understands life and nobody on this planet can prove we are living and breathing on this planet. Yea you may be breathing and walking, but you can't prove your actually living a life the way you want to live it. The earth is 4.6 billion years old, so why has human life only lived on it for 2014 years? Get what I'm saying? I'm in no way saying we aren't living in a reality, I'm just saying we don't understand anything about life and never will. We just live our life. Hell for all we know aliens could control the universe. Sounds stupid? Maybe, but saying it's not possible means your oblivious and too closed minded about everything around you. I'm in no way attacking anybody's religion, tho I myself think religion practices and using religion as life answers are dumb but that's just me. A bible does not prove anything, again not attacking anybody's religion (cause I believe there is a god of some sort) I'm just stating an opinion.

As for my purpose in life (if we have one). I have no clue.

I know we were put here with the purpose of living and breathing air. Other than that, no.

Technically, everyone was born to reproduce before they pass away, as that's the use of every living organism. I think it's more of what goes on in your life that sort of molds a purpose for your life.

For example, Eminem. He was in a poor family coming from a troubled home. And he used rapping to get out of there and he broke free. Everyone sort of builds a purpose for their life based around their talents, it just takes some longer to realize it.

I think we're all born with a purpose and that is to live; we're given a life and so we live it.
