What is your opinion of the "goal" of all earthly life? Why is that your opinion?
To contribute towards making the world a better place and being remembered for it years, decades, and centuries after your death.
Why should there be a 'goal' ?
I don't see any goal. I enjoy life and that's it. I don't care for any 'goal'
It's a waste of time !
An honest response, selfish, but honest...much appreciated
I'm a very selfish person and I love to be that way.
I love myself, I take care of myself, I respect myself.
We have, only, one life to live and enjoy.
I respect your response.
Ayn Rand, in her philosophy "Objectivism," promotes "selfishness" and I agree with her.
ALL earthly life? even animals and plants? to keep the stream of life going, i guess.
So, you and your brother Rom didn't do too well with the Bar on Deep Space 9 I take it?
You have made the same mistake many do....you refer to Quark...:-)
I believe it is 'Seasoning'... Flavoring, Developing, Learning, Strengthening our soul, for whatever is next.
Because I believe -WE ARE NOT HUMAN BEINGS HAVING A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE... WE ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS , HAVING A HUMAN EXPERIENCE.
I believe that the human body is just a cocoon for our true being, the soul. I believe that everything we experience during our human existence is 'seasoning' (flavoring) our souls. The time spent in the human form is necessary to allow the 'seasoning' (strengthening) of our new and weak souls, once our soul is strong enough the cocoon is shed and the soul moves on to whatever is next.
I believe that God decided to use the human body and human lifecycle to 'season' (strengthen and flavor) newly created/born souls (us).
You take a religious posture.
I am not involved with religion but I respect your honest response.
All we can do, you and I, is to agree to disagree..:-)
Lets see what others think.
Happy New Year..."may you live long and prosper." :-)
Yes, I agree. If we can do that, nothing better. If we strengthen our soul we need not to worry about next. It will surely be better.
What is your reason for that reply?
To fulfill a purpose. From a sheerly biological standpoint, that purpose is reproduction.
Beyond that, it is difficult to say. Our minds long for knowledge of how things work and why - perhaps the "goal" there is knowledge of truth in as pure a form as possible.
without this basic goal life as we know it will end. then the question would become mute
hmmm ? i think you know. which ever ones spelled right . you tell me

Can you see the lines being drawn? One can only be for God or against. Gathering or scattering. Even if it is through unbelievers or Believers- The choice is coming to the forefront. I see believers in Jesus -even me trying to get you to accept Jesus and to be forgiven of your sins against God....

The national debate around abortion centers around two peaks of moral high ground. There is the woman's right to have ultimate control over her own body versus the right to life of a fetus. I will admit upfront to being a pro-choice advocate. I am not saying I approve abortion...

Why don't facts change a person's opinion?More than 30 years or research show that attempts to refute false information often backfire and lead people to hold on to their misperceptions even more strongly. Source: Christopher Graves, the Harvard Business Review (February 2015), Why do...

What do you think about him? I think there is something somewhat off about him, but I really can't pinpoint it. Maybe it's the way he always tries to weasil his way out of direct questions about his beliefs in God etc.
