    What is the purpose of life?

    To look after the planet so that all forms of life big and small can survive.  Unfortunately we've been doing the opposite.  We are the only ones capable, we are Gods.  Our ideas manifest themselves in reality, we create, how many other species on Earth do so?

    It depends on what you believe in.

    I'm a Christian. So I believe the purpose of my life is to do what God wants me to. I don't know what that is though, so I spend a lot of time wondering if maybe I'm wrong.

    The purpose of life is to spend it in a purposeful way, and if you believe in a Higher Power, to honor your Higher Power with your life by living it in a benevolent and generous way, grateful for every blessing.

    To give back in some way, to leave this place knowing you did something to make the world a little better and brighter, and hopefully touched someone's life in the process.

    To eat and breed.

    Anything beyond that is your choice on whether or not you make it significant to your life.

    Looking at some of these "answers" is depressing. Eat and breed? Really? Well if you want to live like an animal, then go ahead. To take care of the whole planet and be responsible for all it's creatures, who are trying to kill each other, seems a bit out of our hands.

    If we serve God, and honor him by doing what he wishes us to do, would not only serve your spirit, but mankind's as well. Don't waste your time on looking at other Christians, because they are flawed like everyone else. Look to Jesus and your life will be full of purpose.

    The Christians would say that the purpose of life is to serve God and suffer for one decade after the next, attempting to survive until such time as you are no longer able and God, in his unknowable wisdom, kills your ass dead in order to reward you in Heaven.

    The athiests would say that you must eat, fight, and breed in order to propogate your genetics.

    The spiritualists would say it is to find internal peace and happiness.

    The humanitarians would say it is to serve man in order to better the quality of life.

    I believe it is to leave the world a better place than how you found it.

    According to "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," the meaning of life is '42.'  I believe the purpose must be related.  Yes, this answer is completely facetious, but it always gives me a laugh.
