nicolaou, I find it highly disrespectful that you refer to me as a dude. I am a man, a dignified young man. And I have too much conviction to be refered to in that manner. Please speak to me like a man. Thank you.
What is the purpose of life?
You're a dick.
Considering the scenario that God does not exist:
IF God does not exist then Justice is on the same scale as fecal matter; love and other human virtues mean nothing, they don't matter. Their attempt to modify human conduct is a mere ploy used by the mechanics that drive the universe to achieve its means.The purpose of life then is to find a way to be god
Exactly, Fisherman, if God was not here then that means that nothing really matters to the entire world and that we are just here for nothing. Why would we be here for nothing when we clearly have a purpose as we are the wisest animals on the Earth. You're right that it is just a ploy to change people and make them in a way more likely to be controlled and that is just cruel but the worst of it is that we don't even acknowledge it because it is so instilled into the society as a whole now. But, true Lord-fearing people can make this better and I do believe it will get better but first we have to get people to stop disrespecting God as if he is the cause for all bad. It will be a hard battle but we can do it as we have faith he will give us the power to achieve what needs to be achieve through all of us.
your attitude needs some sparkling up..

What I really meant to say is:The purpose of life then is to find the means to be god.

Without going into much philosophical detail, one problem immediately jumps out. When we talk about whether something matters, we're talking about whether it matters to someone. So if God does not exist then justice, love, and virtue can't matter to God, obviously, but they can still matter to humans.
And Viviane, you insisting he is impotent isn't true at all.
Your God has yet to do anything besides be impotent. Your God is exactly as impotent as you, neither can stop me from saying it.
Also, if you want to be treated like a man, then you need to act like one first.
Fisherman: "The purpose of life then is to find a way to be god
Interesting Freudian slip: Life has very low entropy, like the young universe, which was as close to the creator as you can get (if there is one), So, yes, Life is as close to the creator as matter can get, and getting closer, creating inorganic life perhaps?
The purpose of life is Freude.
