Question: Purpose of life/ meaning of life!?
The world is going to end 7 billion years!.!.!.!. ok, that is a horrifically long time but the clock is ticking

Surly our goal is to ensure our survival beyond the collapse of the sun, you really can't be too prepared for "the end of the world"

And as human beings we've secluded ourselves into little tribes, on little pieces of land and are fighting each other, most of the planet cant even get enough to eat and drink!.

We can't even organize ourselves with preventative measures to stop us destroying ourselves, we don't deserve to survive if we carry on like this!.

If we can get it together I think we earn the right to survive!?

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
I think cooperation is important when we plan to colonize another planet / star!. Technology is going to be the key in saving the world, but know that war has always been the single contributor in pushing development of technology - to the bleeding edge!.

Let's see, rocket, radar, radio telescope, computer, internet, atomic bomb!. All of those technologies came out of the war!. It is horrible to know that we are so serious about preserving our own hides!.

Aren't we developing the right tools by pushing technology only to use them in war, in killing each other!? The erie nature of war is survival and is in-line with what we aim to do!. However, we seem to emphasize the destructive mentality too much and forgo the intrinsic value of each human life!. The human spirit has become tainted by the cynical aspect of war!.

In retrospect, we have been willing to destroy cultures and other human beings for the greed of power!. War became a self serving activity, the survival aspect became so wrapped up with politics and ideology that greed has also been disguised and concealed!.

When war became the sake of war, then chaos and self destruction are ensured!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Lame, lol

We're servants my friend, designed to serve each other, the world, and ourselves!. It is what makes us the happiest, It's what makes us great!. People don't realize this, and when we're not serving take for instance playing dang video games all day, it makes you feel like you just wasted the day and feel bad, even though its fun as hell playing games, it doesn't feed the hunger so to speak!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Why would you want to earn something you can just take!.

Anyways, I agree!. People should stop this nonsense (war) and try to survive as a species!. Like start trying to find a way to move out of the planet or some other futuristic way to survive!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I think what you wrote sounds good in theory, but the world is a different case!. I think it would be a better place if humanity put others first!. Be more considerate, kind and had peace in their hearts!. But my friend this is the real world!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Am I the only Christian!? Come on people!

The meaning of life is to wait until you get to Heaven!. And while you are waiting to do good works here on Earth!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The world will end in 3-4 billion yrs!.

THere is no meaning or purpose to life!. There is nothing to earn!. Someday all life will be gone, the universe can't maintain life forever!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

He who has a why to live can bear almost any how!. ~Friedrich NietzscheWww@QuestionHome@Com

The Universal Father has poured out himself, as it were, to make all creation rich in personality possession and potential spiritual attainment!. God has given us himself that we may be like him, and he has reserved for himself of power and glory only that which is necessary for the maintenance of those things for the love of which he has thus divested himself of all things else!.


There is a great and glorious purpose in the march of the universes through space!. All of your mortal struggling is not in vain!. We are all part of an immense plan, a gigantic enterprise, and it is the vastness of the undertaking that renders it impossible to see very much of it at any one time and during any one life!. We are all a part of an eternal project which the Gods are supervising and outworking!. The whole marvelous and universal mechanism moves on majestically through space to the music of the meter of the infinite thought and the eternal purpose of the First Great Source and Center!.

The eternal purpose of the eternal God is a high spiritual ideal!. The events of time and the struggles of material existence are but the transient scaffolding which bridges over to the other side, to the promised land of spiritual reality and supernal existence!. Of course, we mortals find it difficult to grasp the idea of an eternal purpose; we are virtually unable to comprehend the thought of eternity, something never beginning and never ending!. Everything familiar to us has an end!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
