view's on purpose of life & god
    #2796759 - 06/15/04 11:42 PM (13 years, 13 days ago)

My Feeling on my purpose on life is to teach others. To expand there mind and there world as they know it, and also expand yours while your at it. You can effect there life in more ways you may think.

With time this can have an impact on our world as we know it hopefully for the better.

I realize your children are the most effected by your teachings and lifestyle but even before children you cas still effect the world.

do i believ in god? NO and yes im not sure. Having a scientific mind i done believe in that but i beleives there is a superior being in all of us, and when we truely connect with it we find out god. "When you find yourself, you find god".

Fell free to give your view's

The purpose of life is to multiply and advance the human race so that it flourishes. God is irrelevant to this in my view, and does not intervene in our affairs or even care (or have the capacity to care) if we destroy ourselves. I see God as a force not personalized as a being in the sense that we understand it. We are but a spoke on the wheel.

When I ask myself about the purpose of life I wonder about all life, not just humans. And it seems the purpose of life is to just try and survive and multiply. But for what reason?

My Feeling on my purpose on life

No, no, no! You are wrong!

The purpose of life is to get what you can for yourself, and screw everyone else! Don't tell anyone anything you have figured out. Keep it a secret and keep everyone else guessing.

Pay bottom dollar to the most needy of people and they will probably do anything for it. Don't give them raises, to keep them needy and dependent on you.

Rip people off whenever you can. If they allowed it to happen in the first place, they probably deserved it.

If anyone comes up with a good idea for your business, tell them you already thought of it and scoff at them for coming up with a weak idea. Then, use it. Make lots of money off it and don't tell them.

If I missed anything, someone clue me in. I'm learning to be a good rat.

Yes! You are a good rat!

And stealing candy from children, and popping bubbles blown by a child, and kicking small animals as you walk by....

Furthering knowledge is a noble cause. I personally think that we've been given the chance to create our own purpose to life.

Well we all have our ouwn niche in the comunity. I was blesed with a dam nice and usefull brian unlike many people ive met. I figgued i might as well help stuff some good stuff in there. I never really realized this until 2 weeks ago at a party when i was chating with some guys about drugs and one of the guys i met that night said this guys allabout expanding minds.. i was thinking, wow i am! It not like im starting a new trend or though process im just realizing im with that crew.

The purpopse of life is much simper then surviving physicaly, its surviving the world today not fucking the shit out of every hot shcik so you can pass on good genetics. By teaching you can pass on more then genetics, thoughts. And you can benifit greatly mentaly and economicly if you choose the right path. Because afterall thats all it is, choosing what path to take and what decisions to take allong the road.

Purpose? To die eventually. And yes, death might be the end in a very perminent sense. God? Not anything that actively looks out for us or is even really intrinsicly 'better' than us. Blue-green algae doesn't need a purpose in life, yet it's a key part in the reason you're here today, in that it's part of what's allowed you to exist today because without photosynthesyzing algaes there wouldn't really be a heckuva lot of oxygen in the air, and that'd limit any forms of animal life to pretty simple stuff, really. There are things I'm hopelessly dependent on, such as the sun. In many respects the sun is much much much more impressive than I am, truly a greater being by countless orders of magnitude. It doesn't make the sun better than my pet inchworm, Jacob.

Don't worry, I'm wrong.

Yes teh agle makes oxygen, the sun poweres our world, But the question is, while your here on this wonder of nature what is your purpose? To die is what we'll alldo when its all over, but while your heer whats your veiew on our individual purposes.

#1--love yourself
#2--find something or someone (not a human, we're talking "higher") to believe in
#3--The Golden Rule (no shit, it works!)
#4--spiritual alchemy

Then your purpose should be revealed to you, and will be applicable to yourself only. No need to proclaim it, but you are required to demonstrate it! (Demonstration clause also applies to #1 and #3, others are considered private just as the knowledge of purpose is)

:goodluck:

#3--The Golden Rule (no shit, it works!)

WTF does that mean, it works? You mean like the guy who tried to stop a robbery and was knifed to death? Like the three times that I stopped to help fellow motorists and each incident cost me from hundreds to thousands of dollars? Like the guy that jumped into the river to save another and got himself drowned? Is that "working"? (Here comes the part about good karma in your next life.)  :rolleyes:

More feel-good nonsense...

I always heard the golden rule was reading, writing, and arithmatic. Which I guess is good in an educational type fashion. Though I will assert that you recieve good or bad karma now. John Lennon wrote a song I like
"Instant karma is gonna get you, it's gonna knock you right in the head"
