How many times have I heard that question? What is the meaning of life?. As if anyone could possibly know. The religious person like the gurus that use to hang out at the city parks in the late sixties and early seventies, wearing their white gowns and having that long hair and beard. Hell they'd have to know lookin like that wouldn't they? Or how about those TV preachers telling you about your " Purpose Driven Life". That was a fine book it tells you all about the meaning of life. If you have the bucks to be able to buy the book then you can know too. The atheist or agnostic may believe there is meaning but not necessarily "A " meaning. Or purpose. Everything came about at random and any meaning to life is what we give it. I wonder how many of the old beatnicks back in the day wrote poems and stood up in the coffee house layin out there profound ideas. I'm a geezer now. Seen and heard most of the shyt all the gurus and philosophizers had to say about it. Only thing that comes to my noggin that makes any sense at all, is that the meaning of this life, is to love, and be loved back in return. Anything short of that seems to be pretty meaningless to me.
The Next Life is better than the life of the World:
No diseases, no dirts, no toiling, no suffering.
More knowledge, more happiness.
No death anymore.
Praising and hymning the praises of God and living in prosperity.
friendliness, loving each others as brothers chatting and talking and drinking wines delicious.
Everything that they desire they will have in the neighborhood of God Most Merciful in the kingdom of heavens under the Throne of God.
The body is just a vehicle. Vehicles deteriorate and stop functioning but the conscious energy that animated the vehicles is an infinite part of the Universe. In physics, no energy is lost or created, eternal.
You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.

The number 42 is, in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, "The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything", calculated by an enormous supercomputer named Deep Thought over a period of 7.5 million years. Unfortunately, no one knows what the question is.
perfect, I am proud to contribute to new beautiful vegitation growing on this earth, and yes, that
is eternity, the earth is our mother, we will be with her till she decides to 'not' live
any more, we might end our own possibility to exist, but she will decide her fate.
and "God" is a figment. Riiiiiiight....ok...... but the planet, basically a big rock floating in space, get's human qualities such as sexuality, and the ability to decide it's own fate. gotcha
all living things have sexuality, the human race is just so arrogant they put themselves above
every other living thing, then add more nonsense as to how and why they are here, its comical.
ROFLMAO... nice try. You are giving a big rock, floating in space, a female gender and the ability to decide when it will or will not "die".
The question what is the meaning of life is a trick question.
Once you subscribe to the question you have to think about
it and that takes precedence over all else. While you are
thinking about it and wondering you forget to do the natural
thing "Live Life"
The question is a distraction put in your way by those who
want to direct or guide you. Wouldn't want you to go round
thinking foryouself now would you
I watched an episode of "The Simpsons" where Homer was laying in a hospital bed in a coma. In his mind he was talking to God. He asked God what the meaning of life was. God said "You find out when you die."
