If you believe there is no god, then presumably you believe there is no heaven... what then is the point of life? If there is no moral reason to do or not do anything, and most desires are instincts to perpetuate this seemingly pointless phenomenon, why then do we bother?
To reproduce, to continue the species, to provide the next steps for gradual evolution, to help the advancement of humanity, and most of all to make the most of it and to make your existance mean something. Thats what I'd say.
To reproduce seems to be the point of life at a basic basic level.
To live life. To enjoy it to the fullest. To experience the highs and lows, to love and to have fun. Make the most of the time here as this is it. Try new things and experience all that the world has to offer in the years that we are able to.
Logic makes my head spin. As a species, we're not logical at all, so I tend to disregard that arguement in principle, rather than as a practical approach (as I can see where you're coming from.)
As I said though, I do disagree in principle... just because you can say your life has no meaning to you that everyone's else life means nothing. Life is what we make it, I see it as a pound of clay. We mould it to how we want, to what we want, we give it purpose, clarity, definition.
Its too late to be having this sort of arguement, my brain has frazzled, so i'll check back in the morning!
I sometimes see life as a set of puzzles that we are here to solve, generation by generation. I guess its really about reproduction and success, that or to become a rep god on tsr.
you dont have to have a reason to exist for you to exist but you can put as many as you want there to be.
Does there have to be a point? We're all here whether theres a point or not - lets make the best of it.. enjoy life, and make the world a nice place for others to enjoy aswell.. as for morals, i don't see what on earth they even have to do with religion or there being a point to life, you can be an atheist AND a good person aswell! shock horror! so i don't believe in God or heaven or hell, i still want to enjoy my life, still love my friends & family and appreciate the natural beauty and how amazingly and cleverly evolved the world is and do what i can to help other people on the planet.. i don't see why anyone would need the incentive of a nice cushy cloud to sit on after they die to do any of that..
lazzarus, are you going to answer my question?
