Whatever you choose to make it...for yourself. As far as a purpose for humanity, the closest thing to that would be to survive. Just as the "purpose" of any species is.
I would say "procreate", rather than survival.
Keeping in mind that it is survival of species, not individual, I'll stick with survival. Not only does "procreate" lose meaning when applied to an entire species, but procreation does not guarantee survival or even reproduction.
Still mostly semantics, though.
Does it lose meanin, Because species turn to other species... rarely does a species remain static. Species either die out or becomes new species.
Think so.... It appears both words mean the same, one in species level and another individual.
It's complex question fallacy, like "do you still beat your wife?".
The question should be "is there a purpose for humanity?"
And the obvious answer is "No".
I make a pen or house for a purpose, but the hill beside my house has no purpose, it, simply, is.
The purpose of humanity/humans is for each one to enjoy being alive.
Horatio Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford probably gave you that notion, much bounced around.
Certainly, 'Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness' seems to owe more to Horace than anyone else.
If you want to understand the ideas that underpin the foundations of the US, the English Civil War, and how the differences were resolved is the place to look.
The French made a study, of course. And that is in the US psyche, too.
Looks as if we have 'survive' and 'be happy'. I think the purpose is to find a way to do this collectively.
There is none, humans or humanity act and behave like a virus, destructive where ever it goes devours all natural resources and does more damage the longer it stays, The human race started life as a combination of two amino acids which was pure chance and grow and developed into what it is today self destructive animals who destroy its own kind for no good reason and in the process the planet it lives on.it serves no purpose what so ever. And i count myself in that.

When we look at nature in order to see what type of species man closest resembles in the animal kingdom we will see quickly what we do not resemble as a species. We do not act as mammals, we do not even resemble the reptiles. In all reality, we truly resemble those creepy little bugs who fly blind...

For the believer in supernatural deities, a god created existence and all that is contained within it. As, it would seem to date, the most advanced form of life is the human animal. This is an animal that, for all intent, is biologically identical to a chimpanzee or bonabobo monkey."This item...

Is procreation necessary for a marriage to be valid/legal?Well, is it? Many of the opponents to same sex marriage state the obvious in saying - 'you cannot procreate' - as the basis of the reason that they feel SS marriage shouldn't be legal. Yet plenty of heterosexual marriages are formed by...
