    The Purpose of Life

    Assuming you believe that life has any purpose, what would it be? (Check all that apply, in your opinion.)
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.

    Re: The Purpose of Life

    My purpose in life is based on the fact that I believe I have been blessed, despite myself. I give thanks to this fact by providing for my family and community in ways that I feel can have the greatest impact on those who are deserving.

    Do no harm. Spread knowledge of the impact of humans on their environment. Leave it like you found it.

    Re: The Purpose of Life

    If there is a purpose of life, we're incapable of knowing it, and don't have the free will to address it even if we did.

    There isn't a "correct God", there is only "God" and while all of us fail to serve Him "correctly" some of us serve Him "less correctly" than others.

    Unfortunately, the world is full of people who say things like "You can't serve God even close to 'correctly' unless you follow [the Baptist Church/the Catholic Church/Judaism/Islam/whatever]." I know of no solution to this age-old dilemma.
