    Well since death isn't final or a real thing birth isn't your origin or a real thing. What came first the chicken or egg? To me it must be an begginingless and endless cycle since you can't have one without the other.

    You should add some evidence to your statements

    It would help

    I don't believe there to be an objective meaning to life, and that lack of objective meaning doesn't bother me in the slightest. We make of this fleeting moment what we can, a beautiful instant in an eternal memoryless void.

    Nothingness is impossible so time flows without begging nor end.

    Egg. Definitively. By at least a hundred million years.

    You heard the man. No begging!

    Nice, although just a sop

    Certainly not correct, or evidence

    You have a rigorous proof for that?

    So, the cliff notes of my thread:

    If one believes in God, life has objective meaning, but if one doesn't believe in a god, then life only has subjective meaning, if at all.

    This has never been said before. /sarcasm

    Belief in God is subjective meaning, If it weren't, nobody would find it so personally fulfilling. Meaning is ultimately always subjective and personal, regardless of whether it is objective or not. But being subjective doesn't mean it isn't real. On the contrary, it is exactly what makes it so real for us.

    Yet , in response to posts # 129 and 130 .

    It seems that a god gives meaning to our life , our existence ; yet I think we have been brainwashed into thinking that we , Humans have no meaning , without any context of a god refferrenced into our meaning of existence.

    I resent this .

    With or without any notion or form of god ; we exist .

    Therefore Our Priority is Our Existence . We have lost our own sense of our own existence , in the forest of god(s). Ancient Histories Pharohs , Abrahamic , Annunoki and the like .

    Fundamentally our meaning of life should come our ancestors and what they went through for us to be here at all .

    Life has meaning , Our own form of intelligent life , Humanity .

    Ask Michael 345, as that seems to be what he's claiming.

    Frequently the up arrow does not work so that's on the forum

    Ignoring that I suggest the problem might be this
    is directed to a poster on my Iggy list

    Hence the remark has gone into a dead end

    Concur.
    The link-to-post feature does not work.
    If anyone wishes to reference a past link, they should do so by explicitly pasting the link.
