It is obvious that man is not in a position to appoint the purpose of his own life, for he does not come into the world of his own accord, nor will he depart therefrom of his own will. He is a creature and the One Who created him and invested him with better and higher faculties than those of all other animals, has also appointed a purpose for his life.
I don't follow your logic (possibly because I couldn't locate it). Where is the rule stating that one cannot determine the purpose of their own life unless they come into the world of their own accord?
There is no dictation; the purpose is already defined by the creator and it is as good as a purpose could be; if one fulfills it; it is appreciated; if one doesn't fulfill it one's deeds get wasted, obviously.
I am glad you have a religion that you know and love. But where do you get off? Why can't you just let us be? I don't doubt your religion at all, in fact I support it, as long as you stop telling me what to do. Because I obviously don't tell you what to do.
The brain is a very powerful tool. You only have a set amount of time on this earth. With that being said if time is limited, very limited, it is clear that people should occupy their brains with things they love. This means that the things I spend my time on are and should be up to me! Not Paarsurrey. Whether you want to believe it or not, you have burned your religion in to your brain. And the way you feel about religion is the same way I feel about learning about the universe and biology. It is much more intriguing and fits me much better.
