I'm here because I'm not Canadian. If I was Canadian I'd be there. Other than that I'm clueless. I do know life is not a contest or game. Who ever dies with the most toys does not win. My goal is to LIVE (in caps) and when my time comes I want to be totally used up and be able to say, "Man, that was a good life. A life well spent." We're here for each other. For better or worse whatever the case may be.

The "why we are here" question is moot and one that never needs to be answered on a collective level, but should be answered on an individual level.
There is no reason why you are here, or why I am here.
However you can make life better for yourself and others.
Life is for living, live it. There is no rhyme, reason, nor is there a lofty goal. You are the same as a piece of dirt, a mouse, or a horse. You exist. YOu can find a purpose in your life, but that doesn't mean we are here for a reason.
I would beg to differ.
Yes, but "how" you do it provides "why".
Agreed, but empty if stated in that manner.
This would be untrue.
This would be untrue also and very limited in thinking.
A purpose isn't found, it's created. And I'll agree with the latter portion of your statement as I've already stated there's no collective "why" we are here.

Why do most people, whilst they acknowledge God's existence fail to live for him?The devil has done everything he can to make people think that he doesn’t exist and yet most people live for him. Most people, though they believe in God don’t live for him. Why is that?

Why are people hateful for no reason?I've noticed now on Hubpages, instead of just straight up answering a question, people will attack other people in their answer. For example, they start criticizing religious people when the question has nothing to do with religion. It's like their answer is...
