"The meaning of life?If death is the end of everything, then living is everything.That, to me, means depth of experience.  You're not going to get much depth from religious dogma.  But you can from your relationships and work and…"

"I haven't read through any of the replies yet, so I may be repeating some things. Everyone seems to want to know the meaning of life, and are discouraged if they find it doesn't have a specific purpose built in. But why? My feeling is that…"

"Welcome to the site. Meaning of life - I guess it's what you make of it.  For me, and I would imagine most, if not all of those here, it is much better without a religion and a god to complicate it (and make it more painful than it really…"

"I agree with Nate - the "selfish gene" theories of Richard Dawkins, and other science, have informed my view of what it means to be alive and of the meaning of life.  I.e. there is no innate meaning of life apart from to reproduce,…"

"Hello April.  I live in MS and trust me I know how hard it is to be anything other than Xian down here.  Of course the meaning of life will be different for everyone, but understanding where we come from and how life evolves and flourishes…"

"LotusGreek!  It had not hit me before that because the religious do not see this as the only life, they do not cherish life (any life), the way we (who do not have the imaginary safety net) do. Thank you, Sir!  Epiphany!"

"Assuming it works, I have absolutely no idea how.  I assume that you don't need God for it because you don't need God for the living world to exist."

"The same way I can believe in Life Before Death.  There's no need for God in either case. "

"Hi Simon, You believe in "Life After Death"? Am I reading you right? Not sure how you can square that with an Atheist viewpoint!"

About Me:
Married mother to 1, stepmother to 2. I love things that aren't believed in! I love the occasional debate with my christian mother and how she fears for my soul. I just want answers, thats all!
Age
25-30
Relationship Status
Married
Why are you here?
I grew up a Christian, being forced as a teenager to go to church. No I am married to a catholic. Not sure what the meaning of life is. I just want some answers and hopefully this is where to start. I have a daughter that I want to teach good values too but I don't want to lie about a place that may not exist in this world.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I just simply do not believe in GOD or Jesus. I do believe in Hope and having Faith in the people around me. We are ultimatly responsible for our fates and waiting on a GOD to do something is not what I believe it. I do hope this is the first step into understanding!

Good luck, April
