Because life is so short, we should cherish it and live EVERYday to the full. I'm sure everyone else on this forum would want to enjoy life as much as they can and would rather NOT die.
why would you want to do that when you know you're gonna die?

this is why suicidial people are heroes, they realise life is not worth it, because everyone is gonna die

can't believe enthunasia/suicide is illegal is most countries - one knife and you're dead - how are you gonna stop that?

and anyway, the good thing about this is that the police aren't gonna put you to prison! :rolleyes:

yeah, live life to the full - everyone commit crime, if you don't want to get caught, jump off a bridge, simple as

I'm living because I want to see if you're actually gonna get into oxbridge. If you do, i'll die, if you don't, i'll live and then create another goal.

Cos we don't have much choice unless we want to die so much we actually kill ourselves. Life is supposed to be fun - on average more good than bad anyway. If it isn't, there really doesn't seem to be much point, does there?

Someone might as well create a superbomb that destroys the whole planet - speeds up death quicker. Because, well, what's the point, we're all gonna die soon enough - might as well speed up the process.

Your views?
What's the point in living if you're going to spend your life making stupid, pointless threads like this?

The point of living is reproduction because evolution has made us want to live, want to have sex, and natural selection has given us the urge to reproduce. No one ever said there was a purpose.

really?

recession, debt, war, violence, crime, global warming, taxes, rules, laws... etc

life isn't fun - have you ever watch BBC News 24? seriously, it's all about gaza and war - not fun, unless you are Bin Laden

Well done. If you didn't just google that then I'm impressed.

Schopenhauer?
:nope: beaten by im so academic :p:

It should be said that Hobbes thought this was the life of man in the state of nature, not the civilised state.

There's so much to life. Imagine never experiencing lifes small pleasure. Freshly cut grass on a summers day, the sound of a child's laughter etc. let alone love, travel...life is for exploring, take the chance while you've got it.

I was joking! Jeez. Lighten up.

There is no generally definition of life.
(Original post by Carl Jung)
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existance is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being
No there is no universal point. Life is what we make it, be it for love, fame, fortune or anything the heart desires.

There is no point to life... so how can you argue that we should kill ourselves now? There is no reason for it. We will die one day anyway... so if you like the idea of dying then thats always there for you... in the mean time we can have FUN and be happy without there being a point to it all.

I knew someone would try to be clever and say this.

So the people who don't want children are leading purposeless lives I guess? They are genetically subpar, right? :rolleyes:

Reproduction is not the purpose of life.

Sex, drugs and Rock & Roll. Im going to go clubbing tonight and enjoy it like its my last night out ever.

Live life while u can and then you can spend the rest of eternity dead, if you want to think like that. Very morbid and pessimistic.
