The meaning of life is hard to figure. It all depends on who you are and what you want out of life, you know?

We are our own purposes and goals.Our purposes, human love and this life suffice; divine purpose and love and a future state are nothing.We ought not be"mustabatory"[ Dr. Albert Ellis] in wanting the latter three.It is a non sequitur to argue that ,because the cosmos has no purpose and no god has a purpose for us, that there are no purposes for us.Read Robert C. Price's "The Reason Driven Life."

Fr. Griggs rests in his Socratic ignorance and humble naturalism. He might be wrong!

Cool Chowy, indeed. My motto is :life is its own validation and reward and ultimate purpose. We rationalists find that reason saves us : thereby we avoid the scams of Paul Kurtz's 'The Transcendent Temptation"- those of the supernatural and paranormal superstitions. We naturalists find that science is our glory, contrary to fellow skeptic John L.Schellenberg in "The Wisdom to Doubt." We humanists find that the covenant morality for humanity binds us globally as Paul Kurtz, our distinguished leader ever admonishes. Very Happy

I did a lil search on your question and came up with this...

The meaning of life is deeply mixed with the philosophical and religious conceptions of existence, consciousness, and happiness, and touches on many other issues, such as symbolic meaning, ontology, value, purpose, ethics, good and evil, free will, conceptions of God, the existence of God, the soul and the afterlife. Scientific contributions are more indirect; by describing the empirical facts about the universe, science provides some context and sets parameters for conversations on related topics. An alternative, human-centric, and not a cosmic/religious approach is the question "What is the meaning of my life?" The value of the question pertaining to the purpose of life may be considered to be coincidal with the achievement of ultimate reality, if that is believed by one to exist.

...As you can see there is not really an answer to your question, I mean that's what humanity has been trying to figure out since over 2000 years...

The meaning of life is to reproduce. It gets much more complicated when you factor in humans, though.

Actually it is different for different people. For some people it is simple, fir some there is a higher purpose, it depends on how many lives you've lived before. But if you suffer without definite answer about meaning of life - you are in the beginning of a wonderfull path to the light. I've found my path throught site about what is the meaning of life. But it is only for less than 10% of all people on Earth.
