Life has no meaning, it is up to you to give it some. All the above are personal reasons we find to give life meaning, not any actual reason why life exsists. Life is an ongoing chemical reaction and just is.

So wouldn't you pick the "to die" option?
Kreakin says2014-12-19T20:58:40.1866716-06:00
No, thats not the meaning i give life even if it think it intrisically has none.
Kreakin says2014-12-19T20:59:14.6932080-06:00
I live to live not to die.
Kreakin says2014-12-19T21:00:52.0197363-06:00
The question should be IMHO "What do you do to give life meaning?"
Mister_Man says2014-12-19T21:21:44.6214121-06:00
Alright you make that poll then, I'll vote on it to make it worthwhile

That's not funny ಠ_ಠ
Kreakin says2014-12-20T07:30:14.5933434-06:00
OK, did it, lets see how it goes.

The question for the meaning of life is a silly question. There are plenty of things that do not have meaning. For example, what meaning does a rock have? What actual color does language have? There are some questions that deserve no answer. If you want your life to have meaning, you have to give it some meaning. A natural, all true meaning does not exist for life.

The meaning of life is happiness. Everything in the universe--and I do mean EVERYTHING!--pursues personal happiness. It's what makes things tick, it's what regulates the laws of physics at the most fundamental level. The problem, however, is that the persistent aim to be constantly happy isn't always a good thing for intelligent life. This driving factor is what contributes to many of the world's human ills. And so humans must learn in the variety of ways that they can that seeking constant gratification is not always a good thing!

There really isn't a definitive answer - if there was, I wouldn't have made this poll. I wanted to see what people thought the meaning of life was, and that's really about it.

Without God, happiness is empty, and always striving to be earned by an external source. Without God, the purpose of life is completely based on a choice you make about your circumstances. Why make that choice when you're constantly battling existentialism? Happiness without God is like getting a beautifully wrapped gift box with nothing inside of it.

@thegreatdebate - I don't believe in God and I'm happy. I can accept that I'm nothing more than a bag of bones with an amazingly complex set of neurons in my brain to form a consciousness. I can accept that when I die, I won't know what exists any more, and after I'm dead, I won't care. It's possible to be happy while alive and then die. And if God does exist, I can hang out with my friends in Hell, which will also make me happy, lol.
