Life's Great Questions

What is the meaning of life? How did we get here? Where did we come from? Where did our creator(s) come from? What are your guys' thoughts on these questions? Post what you think the answers are. Of course we are all just guessing here so don't be shy, I would hope there is no worry for bashing each other for our thoughts on this subject.

I think I have a lot of answers to these questions....

Sometimes I wonder, if maybe I'm just dreaming right now....in a coma....
Sometimes I think we are all just microbes on a larger being....and that larger being is just a microbe on an even larger being and so on. Not entirely impossible..
Sometimes I think we were created and put here for the reasons the Christian faith teaches, but most of the time I dismiss these ideas. One question that always pops up...where did God come from??

I'll post more later I'm too far gone right now to type anymore...

Post your thoughts if you got any...discussing is fine but I didn't make this thread for people to act like pricks either.

asking what the meaning of life is, is to assume that there is a REASON for life. it's also only a concideration when you believe that life is the result of a greater power. if life is a result of a greater, intellegent power, then life WOULD have a reason, because the power would have to have wanted to create life for whatever reason it could wish. although, if this greater power created life as an accident, never intending to create life, then life could have no reason. it would be an accident.

but, all mystical bullshit aside, the fact is, life is just life. asking "why" is just another symptom of desiring reason. i find that i have no need for any reasons because i am satisfied not knowing--or jumping to conclusions--about the origin of life.

the only neccesity of life, is to procreate, to further the speices' existance. that's it.

faithful, have no ability to look beyond their stories and accept that life simply is. they are so enamorred with the idea that we are here because a being wanted us and loves us, that they make themselves believe there is a reason for life.

simply put, the question; "what is the meaning of life" shows the arrogance of the asker as to how "special" we are.

sorry for the broken, barely legible answer, but my company is in the proccess of moving so i had to bolt this out real quick and get back to packing!

debate me, that's where my arguments have their strength. i'm never that good at simply stating what i'm trying to say... lol

honestly, i dont think there is a meaning to life, i think we are creation of science. Under the right conditions, life can spring up from bacteria and micro organisms. In no way do i think we are unique, i guarantee there are billions of other civilizations, and im sure some of them wonder the same things as us, but im sure there are older civilizations that have been around for billions of years and already know the meaning of life.
Im confident that life just sprung up from smaller organic compounds, and not from Adam and Eve, im sorry but religion is a joke. All it does is provide a security blanket to the insecure that are afraid to die.
But the one thing that puzzles me is where the universe came from, they say the big bang, but where did all that energy and that created the universe come from. Something must have created it, i dont know who or what, i guess we will never know

I'm not sure about the big bang theory but I do believe we evolved from a single cell organism billions of years ago. I do not believe that God created man in Adam and Eve. There is too much evidence that proves we evolved from primates or at least one part of the primate tree. The reason for living is to further our existence as human beings by procreating and surviving as a species. Not sure how we got here but I'm not too sure where here is either, and if I don't know how I got here, then I sure as hell don't know where we are from. Who said we weren't here to start with?


Simple Answer: Magic.

well said! 100% agree! to me, anyone who thinks otherwise, is just too fragile to accept the truth. and besides, i always say that with god, we're not unique. if we're created in his image, for his amusement, then we aren't a unique random happenstance!

science actually makes us, and explains how humanity, and life, are more fragile, more rare, and more special!!!

I like your guys' thoughts, sound a lot like mine.


Here's another thing I've always wondered....If there is life on other planets, in other parts of the universe in other galaxies and solar systems, do they have to be just like us? I mean, I've never heard anyone else make this arguement before, that if there is life on another planet, why does everyone assume that they need H2O and Oxygen and ambient temperatures to live? This never made sense to me...it's like the scientists who go out looking for life, are ALWAYS searching for a planet with water and an atmosphere......but isn't it possible that life can exist without those 2 things? I mean, just because the critters on this planet need those things to live doesn't mean a whole nother species in another galaxy can't live off of some crazy unknown chemical. Scientists are kind of wierd about this, because they are trying to disprove the existance of God by looking for life, but if God doesn't exist, then why would the life look and act anything like we do? For all we know, there is life out there, but we can't see it because of their solar systems' sun doesn't produce the same kind of light as our sun, and our eyes can't see their colors because the sun is what makes colors. If it is a different sun, isn't it possible that their are new colors somewhere in space that we just can't see.....think about that....try to think of a new color...HHAHAH...it makes your brain hurt. But yeah there are certain living creature on earth that can survive temperatures of less than 100 degrees below zero, and complete darkness, with no nutrients..I can't remember what they are called but they have the word "bear" in their name. Some kind of tiny little parasite or bug or something. So all I'm saying is if critters on Earth can survive without "essential" things, then who's to say life can't exist elsewhere, where the species consumes fire as a way of staying alive and drinks mercury and breathes in carbon monoxide, and is some crazy ass color that would make you faint if you saw it.

What about extra terrestials visiting us? Any of you guys buy into that? I for one have always thought that if things really do visit us and stuff, then they are us from the future, coming back for some reason. Maybe to change history, maybe for vacation, maybe for research... I mean, what are the chances, if there is life somewhere else in the universe, what are the chances that they look ANYTHING like humans? Every alien you hear about has characteristics of humans...but if they really were aliens, then the chances of them looking like us are so slim it's not even remotely feezable.
