Why do you exist? Well. you can trace the mechanics of it back to your mother and father, but if you mean for what purpose are we here, "why" is probably the wrong question.

"Why are we here?" only has some logic to it if we were put here by something for a purpose - a god or some supreme being. I don't think we were. I think quite often **** just happens.

There are, of course, many people who believe "everything happens for a reason". These people, sadly, waste an awful lot of time pondering the wrong questions when they could be doing something useful such as baking, or gardening, or trolling the Daily Mail comments section.

We are a by-product of Evolution. Nothing more, nothing less.

We are simply here to enhance the human genome - the successful reproduce passing on their genes, the unsuccessful (i.e. most on TSR) do not.

I would say we aren't even here to advance the genome. Who allocated us that responsibility? And which neutral authority outwith ourselves actually gives a **** if we advance the human genome or just kill ourselves by gorging on butter?

None, the Earth didn't care that the dinosaurs went extinct, and it certain as hell wouldn't care if all humans went extinct tomorrow.

But the reason why we (humans) exist is because of Evolution... The OP didn't ask for purpose of life (that's another discussion in itself).

Well I've always wondered why humans are above other animals? How did we evolve so much more than other animals? Were humans made to rule over other creatures? It's kind of strange don't you think?

Well it was ambiguously phrased.

As a Muslm I would say we exist to worship Allah, (which is the name of our God), but we're also here to enjoy ourselves and have fun

To find peace within ourselves and attempt to live a fulfilled life. To find even an ounce of happiness in this world.

This is what I personally believe and I strive towards. There's no point wondering why we exist, it's a futile question...one which we will never know the answer to. Perhaps after death. It's normal to question this though (heck I think more about it more often than I should. Especially because there are so many cruel people out there. Abu Ghraib level type of cruelty).

This is my take and I’ve always stood by this answer.

We exist, so we are able to reach out to the hearts of all the people that affect us, in some way.

You’ll understand if you think about it🙂

If Allah came down to Earth and spent a while living on a council estate and running odd jobs to support his family, do you think he would be for BLM, against, or relatively ambivalent?
