Why such a serious topic? Less information flowing around than the Iraq thread.

                   You don't really need information to debate in this thread. Mainly, it is about your beliefs.

I say the meaning of life is simple (as it is with most creatures):

You want to have a succession. Human nature (along with every other kind of creature) wants to leave something behind. Whether it be an idea, or children, or even a momument to (their) god(s).

The meaning of life is too controversial.  How about this topic:

To quote someone, I don't remember who, "The meaning of life is death"

If life is created to die, why then is life created? Why not skip all of the "life" part and go straight to death?

Makes you wonder why we are actually here. Are we here to exist? Maybe to change something?

Maybe bring an end to something more advanced than our pathetic minds can understand?

( Is there another force beyond what we can currently understand? )

A test of what? Endurance? Survival? Intelligence? Or just a test?

Can one cheat this test?

If so, what would they be? Death?

Is our existance here really existant? Or is it all a dream?

Maybe eternal life in this world, wishing you could kill yourself, but you can't.

Would you want to life for eternity? Survive every disease, every catastrophe.. Would you want that?

I wouldn't. I would like to make a difference, and be remembered for it. That is the same for the entire human population. We wish to continue ourselves. We want to be remembered. If the choice came to live forever, what would the majority of people answer?

You think living forever would be considered a punishment?

In a way, yes. But in a way, no. You could see man grow and fall....

I saw some of that. Well, if there is no afterlife or god to live for, then the best thing to do in the interest of mankind would be to make a difference.

(200th post)

It is proven that human nature wants to be remembered. It is a given fact. Everyone knows that death is unavoidable, and as such want to be remembered, no matter how socially inept they are.

Are humans destinied for their own destruction?

Of course you can cheat on the test. You can cheat on any test. But like every other test, your only cheating yourself. If you cheat on some test in school, you cheat yourself cause you don't learn...know what I mean?

Living forever would suck, you'd get bored after a while.

I concur with the statements made by new-er-bie. Cheating, I know plenty about how it's done, never really done any cheating myself. (That is because as a smart person, some people have tried to cheat off me)

I do not cheat, nor have I. I do not let others cheat off me, either.
