firstly, this isnt a suicide note or anything lol and im no emo AND i havnt just been dumped or have any pathetic reason to just be thinking this (you know like when people get dumped and are like "oh i hate life i want to die" its pathetic, over some girl pfft.) anyways im at that stage where i've been wondering

what is the point in life? - to make a living? to experience love? to populate the earth?

this all seems to mediocre, surely there is more to it?

at the moment im bored with college, i have plenty of friends but the lessons im just not interrested in anymore. i dont want to be learning about ict and business and media and all this stupid stuff that really means nothing, i mean sure it will get me into uni? although what will i choose at uni? none of these interrest me anymore, i dont want to be some nerd in an office for my day job, i dont want to start a business or anythign because i find it boring and there are so many numbers, and media im not liking either...and im not good at anything specific.

And so if i do get a half decent job, what am i working for then? more money? yea and it will alow me to have a decent living but i dont want to be another average joe working at his average job working toward nothing, working my ass off to climb this ladder of employment but where is the top? can i ever be content with myself? i dont think so because if i do make alot of money ill be grey and old before i can enjoy it, ill die and that will be it.

I wont be remembered, none of us will. I want to be one to make a difference and be remembered, i have a passion for music but i feel like i have no talent (and know lol) so the only thing i want to do are these way out of reach pipe dreams of playing music. Its not about the money anything like that, i want to be content with myself and be remembered for something. Not just another statistic.

there is so much more i want to say but i fear no one is going to read this, i expect no one will care anyways, so ill add more as the conversation goes on.

what are your views on life? what are we working toward? what are your ambitions? what will you be satisfied with?

The meaning of life? Procrastination, so I'll tell you later.

And I thought only emos could ponder the point of life.

It's your decision to decide the point in life.

Travel around the world with friends after college to find yourself? The others above me already said life is what you make it.

Although this isn't a subject I thrive in, I was reading a book about philosophy, and it talked about this particular question. If one is having trouble answering it, perhaps ask it to yourself in a differnet way, such as "How can I make my life worthwhile", or meaningful, so to speak.

Nonetheless theological views can also influence an opinion on this question. If I had to answer, with attempt to lack any bias, I would say that there is no one point to life. I suppose you could say it's relative, but it just really depends on who you are.

as moronic as you sounds your right, it's to live as a race i.e. pro-create.

my view on life is that people aren't wearing enough hats.

An easy way to be remembered is to move to a random island, learn there language and tell them your a god. Many people will remember you then

I'm here cos I want to take my business to the top. I want to kick Steve Jobs in the face. I want to hang around with beautiful girls and get rich and be able to help other people with my money. That kind of thing. I don't care if I'm remembered particularly, as long as I have the most awesome time while I'm here.

Why does a topic on the meaning of life have to be in the religion thread? I think this is mroe philosophical then religious...

And yeah, Nihilism FTW!

Nihilism (from the Latin nihil, nothing) is a philosophical position which argues that the world, especially past and current human existence, is without objective meaning, purpose, comprehensible truth, or essential value. Nihilists generally assert some or all of the following: there is no reasonable proof of the existence of a higher ruler or creator, a "true morality" does not exist, and secular ethics are impossible; therefore, life has no truth, and no action can be preferable to any other.

Why pretend this i anytihng more than existance? why dont you just have fun play out your hand and go out with what you came in with, nothing

Well alot is distorted by politics and school and all that stupid **** which is all really irrelevant in life. The meaning of life is, simply put, to love everyone and love God. From there just enjoy life and try to help others get to the point you're at.

There isn't a point. We're just random organisms that popped up and our minds grew so advanced to the point where we're questioning the obvious!

So living life without a care or regard for anything else? That sounds very selfish.
