    “Why are we here, what's life all about? Is God really real, or is there some doubt? Well tonight we're going to sort it all out For tonight it's the meaning of life.“ What do you think is the meaning of life (besides a funny movie).

      We're all just a random collection of atoms and chemicals, with random, uncontrollable synapses firing and causing us to do things of no free will. Free will is an illusion, and death is the end.

      The meaning of life is hopelessness.

        Aren't you just a ray of sunshine.  cool

            Yes, but for most people these are the popular ones. With Terminator 2 as free will and Terminator 3 as fate. We tend to look at everything as extremes like with politics (right or left) when in reality most people fall in between. What are the other options? And Do we get to choose?

    To experience ourselves apart from God, and then to make our way back to him.

    I actually know the answer. Thought about posting it in a hub. But Google would just ignore it. So I wont.

    There is no universal meaning of life.  Each of us chooses our own meaning for our own life.  Most are afraid to create their own meaning, so they let themselves be guided by other people, most often under the guise of religion, and fool themselves into believing they are better for it.
