    One may chose whatever it is that one finds meaningful/purposeful in ones life; however, Homo Sapiens as a specie, because of divine intervention, via evolutionary intersection, developed the cerebral capacity to intuit, and invest a higher purpose.

    I agree with you D.Williams, it is very difficult to answer such a question with certainty considering how limited human knowledge is compared to the universe or even the planet.

    Quantum physics says that subatomic particles act randomly, something that Einstein had difficulty accepting when he said: "God does not play dice with the universe", implying that randomness is essentially the same as throwing a dice.

    There used to be a time when philosophy was all humans need to inform them of the nature of the universe. In our age, science has become dominant. Philosophy and Science should supplement and complement each other....to their mutual benefit.

    The randomness of quantum mechanics seem irreconcilabe with general relativity, leading Einstein to posit: God does not play dice with the universe.

    It is the human brain that separate us from the rest of the animate entities on earth. Whereas these other entities live and survive solely via their instinctual wits, we additionally live and survive via our intuitive and creative skills.

    Of all the created entities on earth only Man was given the cerebral complexity and capacity to be reliable and truthful witness to the universe that God has created.

    Paleontological/anthropological evidence strongly suggest that humans were created not in one clean swoop but through an evolutionary process. Does it really matter much if biblical Creation must and should be interpreted metaphorically?
