While reading the magazines the other day it occurred to me that JWs never really had a very good answer to that question. Because it was aimed at young people and it said something along the lines, "if you believe in God you have a purpose, but if you don't believe in God your life has no purpose or meaning". I think that is a faulty analysis of the situation. Belief in God does not in itself give life meaning. Plus it assumes that life should or can have meaning. I won't dispute that or confirm it in this box.
I was going to write a longer post to explain what the meaning of life really is. But I got one of these nuisance commercial calls from India and I foolishly answered their survey questions which included whether I read the Times newspaper. At the same time I caught a Cubone that was running around. Anyway I have to leave in twenty minutes and I have to get ready, so I haven't got time to write the post I imagined writing around the meaning of life.
So if I could just put the question out there and see what there is. I'll maybe come back later with the correct answer. I resist passing judgement.
