What is the meaning of life

<p>Lately ive been thinking about this. I have came to the logical conclusion that their is no god or afterlife. When we are dead we are dead. So hence what is the meaning of all our lives. we all die at somepoint and then thats it. I think our lives have no meaning. what do you think?</p>

<p>I think you are wrong.</p>

<p>/end thread</p>

<p>I don't understand the meaning either. I too think when we die -- that's it. We die. I just like to try and imagine death as a 180 degree turn. You start as nothing. You're born and progress; then at one point you reach a peak and start to digress; then you go back to being nothing. I don't remember my life before birth, so death is just like that. There is no recollection of memories. And I'm fine with that. I wouldn't want to live forever anyway.</p>

<p>But you can't go through life pondering the meaning. You'll miss out on so many opportunities if you keep thinking "Well, I'm going to die anyway.". If everyone thought about the fact that we will die some day, then everyone would stop being productive and just say "Screw it". Take advantage of what life has to give you. The good and the bad!</p>

<p>Yea if there's no god, we all would've been abducted by aliens by now.</p>

<p>There's no inherent meaning to life. It's what you make of it. If you have that nihilistic notion that 'our lives have no meaning cause we'll die someday' then you're missing the point, really.</p>

<p>You don't need a cosmic dictator to force upon you a 'meaning to life'. You choose.</p>

<p>The meaning of life to me? "To obtain immortality, or die trying" :D</p>

<p>The meaning of life is to maintain equilibrium. Good, bad; hot, cold; light, dark; love, hate; intelligent, dumb; conservative forces, non-conservative forces; laminar, turbulent; stars, black holes; heaven, hell; life, death... etc. Life is series of randomly occurring and/or preplanned processes with an opposite (death), just as any other stochastic process is.</p>

<p>^^ no that's not true. The experiment with Earth got F-ed up when the mentally challenged human aliens arrived and wiped out all hominids, remember?</p>

<p>I'm gone by Bone Thugs and Harmony</p>

<p>I figure meaning to our lives is what we make it to be. If it's just to die, then so be it. If it's to take over the world, then go for it.</p>

<p>And I think Lost would be a good show for you :)</p>

<p>A life of meaning</p>

<p>Someone is getting a little existential...</p>

<p>How do you think us Jews feel? </p>

<p>What's taking you so long, you damned, lazy messiah!?!</p>
