    Could we all be wrong?   What if there is no religion that is even close to "why we are here"?

    Maybe they are all wrong. Maybe it's all random chance. Either way I'm glad to be here smile

    Maybe but I don't think we will ever find out. And even if their wasn't we still need something to give us hope and guide us. But who knows?

    We don't know and we won't know until and only then, if.....and there's nothing we can do about the mysteries and finality of life.  It's a gift and the moment we are in is the only guarantee.  Great question that reminds those of us lucky to be alive to make the best of each moment. 

    I believe that the miracle of life is not chance, that each of us has a purpose and there is meaning in all life.  I believe in a higher power with a plan. The complexity of every cell of every living thing takes a lifetime to understand a small fraction of what the world holds;  if humanity reveres the value in a work of art, it follows that our creator values the masterpiece of each being.   

    Spirituality is a personal component, as individualized as each person.  I do not believe any manmade concepts relegating organized religion as the "be all, end all", knows the answers regarding the final journey.  Organized religions have been the instigator of too many wars to proclaim "holier than thou". I just read about a study in progress at University of Missouri that associates the right parietal lobe of the brain as being connected to feelings of selflessness and spiritual transcendence.  Scientists are studing the hypothesis that spirituality is the result of brain function, which means that spriritual experiences aren't just limited to believers.  In fact, the studies show that patients with the most damage to their right parietal lobe were the ones who reported the most spiritual feeling. (Riverfront Times, May 10-16, 2012).

    Ultimately, we are products of our genetics, upbringing and experiences. Throughout our lifetime, we are in a state of flux, changing, evolving and discovering. The final questions, however, we will only know, if that is the plan and when the time comes.

    there is no long lasting answer, idea or concept. Change is the only thing that does not change. So better to avoid such questions

      Then why are the most debated topics about religion?
      Do you debate in other forums about religion?

    DO-Do-do-do-do-do. And ze plot? She thickens. Prepare for more weirdness. The wars, they come and go, people and religions do the same. We will follow what or whom we want and be weeded out accordingly.

    I don't really believe religion has anything to do with why we are here...and boy will we be surprised when the time comes to reveal the real reason and who or what made this all possible..perhaps it was an experiment gone awry ? perhaps we will go full circle and return from whence we came..we'll really never know and when we do it will be too late to do anything anyway....just my thoughts

      Yes, why stress when we already know we will have our answer sooner than later.

    There is always be doubts in the air.

    But I sincerely believe in God and therefore we may go through hell but eventually, we shall emerged victory through tests in life.

    It is an ever going journey for me to seek the purpose of life where God is leading me. It will be my enlightenment where everyone is seeking for.

      But aren't we all seeking enlightenment no matter what road we started our travels on?  Isn't that hope endured for the end?
