In my opinion life on earth isn't just it. There's a whole world out there waiting for each one of us. Life on earth is just an experience that God has given us to freely decide whether we want to spend a lifetime after death with him or not. If there's no life after death, then what's the point of living it? Everything's going to vanish away sooner or later, each one of us is gonna end up all alone. That's why I truly believe that money, houses, being popular, poor, what car you have, work, the school you attend.. nothing really matters. It's just a test that let us discover ourselves, clear our minds. Even if I'm wrong, even if there was nothing after death, at least I held belief and hope throughout life. I had something to look up for!!

I accept.

We have no basis to conclude that there is life after death. As far as we know consciousness is depended on physical brain. No brain no consciousness.

There is no inherent purpose or meaning. We give our lives meaning and purpose.

Thanks for debate and good luck.

Beliefs are our internal assumptions about the world and
they lay the foundation for everything we do and say. This particular belief will make your life very different. You will concentrate on fulfilling your duties for afterlife ( being a religious and devoting your life to God ) and this life will be less valuable to you since its only transitional phase. This is in fact very wrong belief to be had.

Not to mention that we got no rational reason to believe it is true.

If there is no point in anything that ends then why do anything. Why go see a movie if it ends. Maybe because it is fun. This life is only ride we got (as far as we know ) so lets make sure we live it full of happiness and fulfillment.

This debate was set to be 5 minutes per argument. I didn't know that when I accepted. So sorry if it wasn't as good as you expected.

Thanks Pro for interesting debate. And sorry for noob snipe. I wasnt aiming for that.

From the moment you're born your life has no purpose, and it's up to you to change that. You are not automaticly given a purpose and a reason to live. You have to make that for yourself

I wasnt aware of those 5 minutes rule. I just thought it is gonna be interesting. Wasnt going for the sniping. Also this is classic FF so who cares. At least it was quick waste of time.

Ya, which is why I was considering cheating by making my first round before accepting it (giving me a lot more time).

He put it 5 minutes per round ... this is quite exhausting considering that there is dinner on my table waiting to be eaten.
