    One of the great questions of all time..... What is the Point of Life? Why are We Here? What is Our Purpose?

    Well, what say you?

    I don't know the answers, but based upon the treasures that surround me which keep me in gratitude for life, I DO know that I would feel very guilty if I were unhappy....

    Be true to yourself and everyone around you.
    Do this...and good things will happen on their own.

    I'm not going to claim to have all the answers either Athena, but I don't really think that happiness has a whole lot to do with it.

    Honestly, I feel that we're here to be Tested on whether we can and/or will live a good and decent life, regardless of what is thrown at us during that life. I think that is what we're Judged on at the end of this life, and based on that Judgement our soul goes on in one of a couple of ways from there..... Either off to "Heaven", Banished to "Hell", or to be purified and re-educated through punishment and then sent back here to try again.

    My purpose in life is to piss off people who worship flags.

    It's pointless. We're free to make up any kind of myths about it that we would like and try to live them out.
