I want to start this off by stating that life does have a meaning, and that is to "bring more people" in to the world from what I will simply call the "other side" (where consciousness resides before or after death) and to die. the reason I believe these to be the meaning off life, is that these are the only things that bind us to to something externally.
now, if we assume that the only real meaning of life (unless you manage to convince me to believe otherwise) is to die, and all other distractions are meaningless to the final outcome is life worth living?

I take it you do not believe there is anything positive to life, I think that there are many things positive to life. Good luck, Con.

Human progress is one good and positive reason. Human progress in a number of areas have been relatively slow in coming to fruition. And, there are actually good reasons for that. Mainly, I discovered, that there are those whom we might term 'Anti-human Beings' (aka psychopaths). In any case, I think that I have presented a case for human progress in the following papers:
