Your point of living?

What's your point of living? You're all eventually going to die. When you die, there will be no afterlife. It's almost as if you never existed in the first place because you'll forget you'll ever existed, thus you'll forget about anything that made you happy in life and any good moments in life. You can "make the best of it" while you're "here on Earth" for these "rare 80 [only if you're lucky] years", but in the end it won't matter. Most people won't leave behind a legacy, and even if you left one behind, it won't last long. Even famous luminaries like Michael Jackson or Elvis Presley will be forgotten sooner than later. Your contributions to humanity won't matter either because humanity will end, and life on Earth will be wiped out by a meteor in a few centuries from now or even sooner. If that doesn't happen, humans will go extinct anyway by robots.
1. Why would I want an after life ?

2. I have those memories now so why would I care about having them after death ?

3. Matter to whom ?

4.Life isn't about legacy only egotists care about something like that 

5.The things I do for humanity will still impact some people at some time 

6 . Yup life will end but life will be living at some point 

So your whole argument is predicated on the absurd theist presumption things only matter if they are eternal . When the opposite is true . If things are eternal then how could they matter ?

Death is the same for the devout as it is for the atheist.


The devout simply delude themselves otherwise and waste their lives arguing which of their invisible friends has the biggest pecker.

I am too damn busy to think about narrowing my life to a single point.

Originally, my point in life was to become Prince's most talented protege. 
Since his untimely death, I've been forced to find meaning in more mundane things.

This is for you, amerikka.

Yes, and...?

From my perspective, that happens to believers as well.  No one escapes death, regardless of what they do or do not believe.

Living is the point of it all.  Meaning and purpose, and the experience of pain and pleasure, can only be found in the current moment.  As long as I'm here, I'm going to feel what I can feel, know what I can know, experience what I can experience, and try to conduct myself in a manner that helps other people have positive experiences in their own lives.  Perhaps something I create will outlive me and continue to provide benefit to someone, but if not, that's okay too.

In certain ways the Indians may have been smarter than we are, by treading the earth lightly. Time will tell.

Anyway, what do you mean what’s the point? None of us decided to be born. We’re living because our parents gave birth to us. Now that we’re already here we might as well enjoy it while it lasts

You obviously didn't read the details I provided. I already addressed your last sentence and explained why it's illogical. And it pisses me off when people assume I'm a troll.

If humanity were to be eternal. Otherwise it doesn't matter.

So what? If something won't have value in the future it doesn't mean that it hasn't value now. When you go to the store and look at fruit do you use the same logic and think "ah what's the point of buying this fruit when it will spoil in a week or two"? Or "what's the point of buying this cat when it will die in few years?"

Did I say there is a point of buying a cat? No...I didn't. Quit putting words into my keyboard.

I read your entire pointless post, and I couldn’t care less if I piss you off or not. I predict you won’t last long here.

That's just a meaningless evolutionary trait that happened by accident and by infinitely small chance.

And why do you think I won't last long here?
