If our only reason for being is to strive for everlasting life in heaven, how can we derive meaning and purpose out of this life?
My purpose in life is to take it one day at a time and do the best I can, for myself and others. I don't think ahead, but do practice the Golden Rule. I know the difference between right and wrong, and hold myself to very high standards.

I believe their are one or more purposes for each life and once you are no longer needed you are called back home. So, as long as I am here, I do give thoughts to what reasons I am here. I help with the children's home work give freely of my time and money and help especially strangers as Jesus did. Not only does it make me think I might be hitting some of my reasons for being here, it just gives me a smile in my heart.

religion is a poor mans philosophy
religion needs no education
religion only supports a theory that if you believe you will be saved
hopefully from a tyranny of evil
that religion also provides
it also provides hopefully a glimpse into the fourth dimension
the way I look at it
religion 1pt.
