Is there a meaning to life? First, to clear up any misunderstandings in the nextfew paragraphs you are about to read, I shall explain a few things. I am nottalking about the individual people in our lives, that mean so much to us, orindividual lives.
That is a whole other matter. What I mean by the "meaningof life", is the greater picture. There are people all over the world,doing their own thing, living their own lives, in their own areas. Is there apoint to this? The people themselves, benefit from learning and havingexperiences while they’re alive, but then they die, and all they haveaccomplished, ends.
Then the process begins all over again with the nextgeneration. So one purpose for life is established. We are here to reproduce. Ithas been genetically coded into us, and with little prompting, we continue toproduce tiny versions of ourselves. But, is there a POINT to this? Well, Isolemnly believe not. Some people say the point of life, is to have fun and makeothers happy.Order now
Righto then. Sure, that’s a good thing to do, I don’t disagreewith that. But in terms of the big picture, what does it exactly accomplish? Aperson lives their life, has fun, and perhaps has the knack of making lots ofother people happy in the process, then that person dies. And so eventually, doall the other people they brought happiness to. And through differentgenerations come people who have the same philosophy.
. . . same thing, justhappening later in time, with different people. Nothing has beenaccomplished.
. . So, this obviously cannot be the point of life, unless it’sinventor has the same intellect as that of pond scum. I would like to thinkotherwise, so I am interested in finding another answer. Other people believethat God is the point of life. God gives us a booklet of rules and regulations,for us to be eligible to receive his personal ‘attention’.
We respect his wishesand act accordingly, as to how we believe he would like us to act. Then, it isthought, he looks after us and takes care of us. I find this theory hard tograsp. . .
God, usually, is seen as this great celestial being, that is far moreadvanced and powerful than any person here on Earth. He has these ‘talents’ andpowers by simply. . . not being one of us. So, there’s God.
. . . Way up there, lookingdown upon us.
Earth must seem like a little ant farm to him. If he’s up there,looking down and watching over us, how is it so many horrible things happen inthe world? Some of you may say it’s because the people that these thingshappened to, weren’t behaving how they should have been, how God would haveliked them to. Or that God allows us to make choices, good or bad. Ok, then thatwould mean to me that God is an unforgiving and unsympathetic, celestial meanie. Why should he watch us create misery, see wars break out, while he remainsaloof, superior and more powerful than us? I say that’s unfair. Perhaps onereason for him would be, because it’s more ‘fun’ to us be so ‘handicapped’ inthe celestial scheme of things.
It provides more entertainment, more adventure,and it’s harder. And because it’s harder, he knows there will be more rewardsfor us when we succeed in being "good". Something is obviously amisswith this plan, since we continue to do the same things over and over againthrough the generations, and centuries. We just do not learn this particularphilosophy of his. Perhaps he could have let us work the controls? Do you thinkGod has been GOOD at it? Heck no.
Look at the world’s history. . . It hasn’texactly been a bed full of roses. Sure, God tried. But while the footy game wason tv, he forgot to cut some of the thorns off the roses when he was preparingEarth’s future.
You reckon we could do any worse? I don’t think so. Seems to mewe’d all have just as much luck, even more so, at running a world, than Godwould. Even if God really was this powerful, wise, kind and forgiving fellow,why is he running a world? He obviously hasn’t succeeded in achieving much. Humanity hasn’t made any real accomplishments (I’m not talking technology.
. . I’mtalking about discovering anything that would lead us to understanding why weare here at all). What’s .
