    Yes

    There's no right or wrong answer. Life is whatever we perceive it to be. We make our own meaning to live, no one can tell you what to believe or how to live. I agree that life in this physical world has no meaning at all. But I believe that our sprit has a purpose and a destiny...

    I THINK this is what the meaning of life is.

    The meaning of life is to make your dreams come true. Your lifetime is devoted to making yourself happy. If you aren't happy in your life you are depressed in your after life/ death. In other words, LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, YOU ONLY HAVE ONE. MIGHT AS WELL HAVE FUN WITH IT...

    The meaning of life is simple.

    It is to survive and procreate into the future just like any animal does. It is nothing more or less that that. In our struggle to survive, thrive and project our genes into the future, nature had given us many tools. These include love, hate, compassion, cruelty, greed...
