“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). I only ask you try and keep it civil, clean, and as interesting as possible.
According to Douglas Adams the writer of “ The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy” the answer is 42. So there is that
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.
I'm pretty sure this is the meaning of life, actually.
Aren't you just a ray of sunshine.
The opposite of free will is Determinism. The idea that all our choices have already been made aka fate. So random would not fit into it.
Free will and fate are not the only options.
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?
Waking up in the morning in my right mind and to thank the Lord for another beautiful day.
To experience ourselves apart from God, and then to make our way back to him.
"What do you think is the meaning of life?"
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.

If you could give an explanation on what you thought the meaning of life is, or if it relates to certain philosophical ideals, or abides by a nations rules and regulations, how do you answer. Is the question too vague, confusing? How does the meaning of life relate to your own?

The meaning of: “The knack of flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss?"What did Douglas Adams really mean when he wrote: “The knack of flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.” It has severe overtones of Zen Buddhism, almost koan-like.
