Purpose of life?


Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll, although

The sex is infrequent
The drugs are prescription,
and the rock and roll is now played on the oldies station!


Party Hardy!!!

to provide my boss; a scapegoat

my wife; a handyman

my children; a source of income that they do not appear to be able to replace


Other than that, I don't know why I'm here.

To pass on your genes; once you have children old enough to survive, your job is done.

Purpose of life?


I don't know why I am here. Sometimes I think it's just pure chance, and there is no purpose.
I think that there is no purpose to the universe. It just is because it can be.
If you were to fly away from Earth and try to find it again from a million light years out, you couldn't even find it, let alone know whether there is life here.
It makes me feel so small and insignificant.

I get depressed when I try too long searching for purpose.

One purpose is to help others.

Another is to come up with your personal solution to the

Purpose of life?


+1 for Faith...

Also:

-Learn as much as you can, pass on everything you can.
-Meet as many people as you can, and listen... lots of interesting perspectives out there, each one could give you a new perspective as well. (but, always make up your own mind)
-Find a mate, just one, and stick with them. Its a lot of work, but it opens your eyes up to an entire new world.
-Always give a 100%, you'll sleep better.
-Be thankful for life, it passes by way to fast.

Just my two cents....

Well if your not here then who fills your spot.
Someone loses if your not here. A void is created and the balance of life, nature and God is thrown out of whack. Good thing it can't happen because everything has a reason. We just can't see it all.
Quit worrying about and start living it.

Purpose of life?


The OP asked, several people are answering. . .
http://www.followyourdreams.com/purpose.html
and
"Thereís a Far Side cartoon Iíve always liked wherein a guy named Edgar finds his purpose while rooting through the couch cushions; itís a device that looks like a marine mine with springs extending from it, on the ends of which are a small shoe, a watch, a cigar, and other sundry objects."

or maybe the purpose of life is to do this while you still can and while you still want to

and not to get too metaphorical, I thought the end of this clip was symbolic of the fact that women live longer than men.

To simply reproduce. The passing on of genes. Nothing more, nothing less.
