Report Purpose Of Existence in Philosophy & Theory Posted September 10, 2012 1. Why are we actually here and what is it exactly apart from the biochemical and other components that we are?Why does there have to be a why? I don't except that there's anything to us apart from the biochemical.2. What is the point and purpose of existence? --this is for all believers, and non believers inclusive?Why must there be a point and purpose?3. If we presume --as some, that there is no afterlife, then why are we (most) clinging to life? If we go with that theory is it not easier and better to end it sooner or later?This question strikes me as ridiculous. This is the only life that I know I have - of course I'm going to cling to it - when it's over, then that's IT! If I believed that my life was going to go on forever, then I wouldn'i mind ending it in the least.4. Why have children--simply to perpetuate the cycle of suffering??--if we presume that is no God, no spirituality, no faith as Hyper surmises--which maybe correct, non of us can prove the `pro or contra` for it is simply personal experience of experiencing the divine.I don't have any children. I never desired any. I can't speak for anyone else. But, I will say that life is much, much more than a cycle of suffering.I don't understand the rest of your question.5. Why are we killing each other, the planet and all of creation deliberately?I have not killed anyone, I'm not killing the planet, and I'm unsure that the word 'creation' fits.
