Here is a question for you. Do you think if you had all of the answers to life's mysteries that you would be a happier person? LIke knowing the exact date and time of your death and what happens after that. Would you really want to know that? Maybe that is what life really is supposed to be. A big mystery. It is what defines our character after all. We just don't know because we are not supposed to know. And, letting you in on the secret would just spoil the game. What do you think of that as an explanation for life?
is that what the "answer to life" is? to know the exact time of one's death? what about people who are told they are terminally ill? they have a better understanding when they are going to die. does this mean they have the "answers"?
the question of life isn't the end of it, but the beginning. and, for some, it's the mere existance....as if they need to know why they are alive.
we're simply an advanced form of animal life on earth. but for a few events in evolution, it could have very well been apes who ended up thinking as we do and we could have been hanging out in trees. however, evolution designed us not to swing from a branch. in another billion years, who knows what animal will take our place?
i believe our existance was one of mere chance and that no god or gods put it all together, especially in 7 days or less. when man didn't understand science thousands of years ago, and they wondered the same thing as we do now, their only explanation was that some god did it, or that some god was causing it. they thought heaven was above the clouds, even tho today we now know that to be non-sense. a volcano was an angry god punishing people, or a violent storm was the wrath of a god, or a locust swarm was sent to punish, etc etc . even tho some people prefer to still believe that today, we all know, in reality, why those things happen because we have evolved more.
