Aren't our lives contradictory?
All humans have a purpose in life, we all want to make the Earth a better place to live in by taking part in humanitarian projects and searching for suitable jobs, contributing to the economy as a result.
Everyone has a clear and distinct purpose for their lives and these special and unique abilities are honed by them so that they can do well. We all live by our occupations.
However, the Earth and, perhaps, even the entire universe has no specific meaning and they are just here because of some fluke of nature, some coincidence (no offend intended to Christians).
How would you explain this?
I feel as though I have a purpose to be here, I have been beaten down so many times and gotten back up. Had many excuses to just quit but didn't. I knew from a very young age what my general occupation was going to be. I was going to counsel those in need. I have always been the one to give back. The Earth does have meaning to me, it renews it self every year the same as each of us should renew ourselves. It is a place of growth and discovery. Life is amazing if you truly live it.
Revelation 4:11 of the New Testament portion of the Bible declares that the Lord Jesus Christ is worthy to receive glory and honor and power for He had created all things, and for His pleasure or desire, all things were created by Him.
Therefore, it is not true that the whole universe has no meaning or significance (i.e., purpose). The "Good" Lord Jesus Christ single- handedly created everything, as purposed by God the Father, and confirmed by God the Holy Spirit to give Him (i.e., Christ Jesus- our Lord) pleasure and delight, considering the fact that if we live for Jesus in this world, since His Manhood died for us (II Corinthians 5:14-15), He will share us into the full satisfaction and enjoyment of His very Person as our Eternal Life (I John 5:20) and our All in all (Colossians 3:11), not only in this world, but also on that which is to come, since all createdkinds can only be complete "in" Christ (Colossians 2:10; Ephesians 1:23; Psalm 23:1; Genesis 22:14).
In Genesis 1:1, it is clearly stated that in the beginning, God (i.e., the Lord Jesus Christ- John 1:3, 10; Acts 17:24-25; Colossians 1:16) created the heavens and the earth.
Had Jesus not created the planet earth first before the humankind, where would He place Adam and Eve afterwards.
Where would He place the plants or vegetations as well (which He created prior to Adam & Eve) to nurture or nourish Adam & Eve.
Clearly, Jesus made some order in the creation of everything!
The whole chapter 1 of Genesis has these accounts: After creating the spacekind or the placekind during the timekind, the "Good" Lord Jesus Christ created the elementalkind (which constitute the planet earth), then the plantkind, then the animalkind, then the humankind. The angelkind which is the highest in rank among the createdkinds were created earlier than the planet earth and all its inhabitants, since they were dwelling in the 3rd heaven or Paradise.

Try re-reading your Bible--Man is above the angels.
Regarding Mr. Gusser's statement above rendered: "Try re- reading your Bible--Man is above the angels." His claim is definitely not Biblical and an uninformed one (Psalm 8:4-5; Hebrews 2:6-7)! Jesus made or created men lower than angels!!!
Life has a sens to me, I was meant to be here. I feel that I have a role to play, a goal to take, a purpose to realize. Nothing can be meaning less. So to me, life isn't contradictory. Maybe I would feel the same if I lived with the idea of hazardous existence.
I'm not acutally religious and not Christian, but I do think there is a purpose to everything. There is nothing in nature that I have found as yet, to be a waste of time. Each organism fits within the big picture. But I do also believe that there is a form of consciousness behind it all as well. I realise this is not accepted scientific fact but its what I think and what I sense.
I think that purpose arises from within us from the interplay of our biology and our (more-or-less) rational minds.
Everything in life has its purpose.
Without the earth and its natural resources, we will not be where we are now. Just like the Sun is our source of living things in the universe.
I do believe that we need to understand why we are being born and our objective to attain enlightenment in spiritual sense.

If, as is suggested by astro-physicist, the universe had its beginning after the Big Bang,( with the exact nature of what initiated it still up for a lot of conjecture), the question needs to be asked: Did the the cascading events that emanated from the Big...

The Bible states that God created the Waters, but when did He do this?If you notice in the book of Genesis Chapter 1 it does not state the day in which God created the waters within the 6 days of creation. Between verses 2 and 6 it implies that water already existed. However, throughout the bible...

Do you consider the devastation from the tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, etc., 'Acts of God' ?If the Bible teaches that God is love, how do you reconcile causing death and destruction with being a loving God? What about Satan? He is called the ruler of this earth? What part does he play in the...

What are your thoughts on Divine Justice?There are a group of people who want to blame or praise God for certain natural events that have happened. Many people blamed Katrina on the morality of New Orleans. I am not arguing this particular theology (although I disagree with it) I am now wondering...
