there is no purpose of life. the reason that there IS life is because at the beginning of the universe, conditions were right to cause something to happen. that gave conditions for something else to happen, and so on. we are alive because of a chance at the beginning. everything happens because conditions are perfect for them. there fore, there is no free will, though we think there is. we only think that because the conditions are right. therefore, there is no chance. only what is meant to happen.

Regardless of the discussion on the existence of a purpose, human being seems to always have asked this question. From the prospect of evolution, it shows that there has been some advantage in looking for a reason and purpose in life. People without a purpose tend to be wishing to end their lives.
I find the most comprehensive answer to this question is happiness. The ultimate purpose of life is happiness. Everyone is looking for that, in their own ways. Some looking for short-term happiness, some other striving for eternal happiness. So the more important question is how to achieve happiness.

The purpose of life is to reproduce life. Too discover what we are to become, too find the answers to who Is GOD, is there a God, are we alone in this universe, too be all we can be and excell at it. We have to learn all we can too make the best of it, too take care of each other so we can be cared for in like manner. The purpose in life is, after all, what we make it.

@ImMachiavellian,
To contribute something while you are on this earth - talent, written words, shared wisdom to name a few. To leave this world without leaving behind something for others to remember you by would seem like a life lived meaninglessly.

@mpetrangelo,
The purpose of life is also to give hope to the hopeless. Hope of much more.

@kavir1698,
Sometimes to acquire happiness we must go through pain. I try to remember that happiness does not always begin with pleasure.

In the final analysis, the purpose of life is no different from that of other living beings, i.e. to procreate and to ensure the survival of the homo sapiens species. But because man has a mind that thinks and can easily gets bored, he complicates things by making life really complex.

Sharonpustejovsky, you are right. The capacity for feeling happy comes from past experiences of unhappiness. Without ever experiencing unhappiness, one cannot experience happiness. Happiness and unhappiness are two sides of the same coin. Take for example a mundane thing such as a glass of water. We drink it without feeling even the slightest tinge of happiness nor gratitude. But give it to a man lost in the desert who hadn't had a drink for the last three days and he would willing exchange his gold for your glass of water.

Many ask and answer the question's "what is the meaning of life", and "what is the purpose of life"....Yet what is meaning, and what is purpose? For those whom take meaning and purpose and apply it to anything other than meaning and purpose themselves shall certainly have ones head in the clouds, missing the view..

in my opinion, it is impossible to specify a goal for each person,even for all the mankind when one has no belief in God.when we restrict our world to this life only, is when the problem emerges .and it's reason is that we all will die in the end and in general , it doesn't matter what you do in life because the end will be the same for all.so... i think the extension of this life to another may be beneficial for some ,since that is where fantasies can be dreamed of , besides, thinking of a life beyond this one can be productive for it is supposed to be made by what you do now , either good or evil .

Traits which survive evolution have purpose. The desire to continue your own survival is so deeply rooted it is called instinctive and has several protective layers built around it (fight or flight, etc). Damned it I know why, though. Perhaps the purpose of life if to question your existence as an individual until a worthy goal is found to sustain your will to survive.

@ImMachiavellian,
Me too, The purpose of my life is just thinking about this question and other philosophical questions. I could not found any thing else to satisfy me. I am waiting to see what happen at the end of this life...it is so interesting.

@harlequin phil,
This is the complicated. If we have good environment around us then we can do anything but you first need to get confidence at yourself .Do just one thing which you want to do in your life.You will get your target.Actually we are confused what we have to do? This is our problem.You should be doing your job perfectly.Don`t lose your heart.
