Purpose:

Well if evolution is true, you're here because you evolved out of single cell organisms and you're not worth a thing.

Now if God created Heaven and the Earth, then you're here for a reason and your purpose is to glorify God and help your fellow humans.



1. You can't assume what the "Truth" is because you feel the purpose from the latter setting is more appropriate. That's like saying the world should be flat because if it was round, all paper maps would be inaccurate (and is)

2. You're a fucking Bulgarian and no Bulgarian did anything to contribute to anything. Go kill yourself, and your family, and set your house on fire, so it can quite potentially kill more Bulgarians living in slums next to you.

of course ^ not from this post but your posts in phil/pol in general.

1. You're a fucking ignoramus
2. John Atanasov (a Bulgarian immigrant) created the first computer in the beginning of the 20th century.
3. Bulgarians created the first bomber plane.
4. Bulgarians didn't give a single Jewish person for Hitler to kill.
and 5. You're a stupid Atheist.

You still only believe in God because he gives you purpose, it's ridiculous.
That means that Johnny boy wasn't living in Bulgaria ; D

Yes God gives me the only purpose. So STFU.


And "Johnny boy" was STILL Bulgarian!

Okay, just because you like having a purpose and believing in God gives you that purpose doesn't mean that it's true.

I like the idea that I'm going to win the lottery tomorrow, but does that mean it's going to happen?

so er

I think its liek this.

We strive to make ourselves happy and/or satisfied. Right?

But that brings up, "why do we strive for this?"

Either a: that's just a random result of the cosmic accident

or b: cause thats how god made man

c:(whatever reason other religions or beliefs or people give)

right? we keep on cauz we want anuthur shot o' happy chemicals rite?
i have no ability to give a nice intelligient opinion, but for some reason, i felt like i got this one...sorry if this sounds stupid

My personal belief is that we all have purpose, whether we know what it is or not. I also believe there is life after death, so death doesn't scare me. But it all depends on what you believe, no one else. But whatever your belief, try to make the best of life, and do something spontaneous before you go Very Happy

"Life is real, life is earnest
And the grave is not its goal
Dust thou art, to dust returnest
Was not spoken of the soul"
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We all have a purpose, because we can all contribute something. To humanity, to the planet, or something else you can think of. Giving up on life deprives both you and the world of something important.

Disregard last post.

Read Camus's The Stranger and study existentialism, which states that no one has a purpose.

I don't see why you wouldn't have one.

And if one must think that nothing proves anyone has a purpose, would they rather believe they don't have one?
