Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Re “Seeds” of 23-3-2019 @ 16:56. I much appreciate the detail of your comments for all to see. Our view is through coloured glasses, coloured by the environment in which we find ourselves placed. As we grow-up, question, observe, learn and make decisions, we find our way through live and come gradua...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

None of us have asked to be born. We are here ‘not’ by our own choice but as the result of the natural breeding-urge of our forefathers. We have no say about our own quality. We are all born with a free will, but we are ‘not’ all born equal. We may be male or female, large or small, have different t...

Re: -1- of Mar13@2:01AM
Why do you ignore that we, as distinct from animals, know that sex is for procreation, and that we have a free will to do or not to do. Are you just here to amuse yourself?

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Re Belinda’s of Feb25, Nick_A, and seeds, and then 11011 of Mar3. Mentioning the Bible and God, shows your choice. I also was indoctrinated for years, culminating at a Jesuit Highschool. It took me many decades since then, to come and realise that beliefs are just human aids to get through life. If ...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

I know this is a basic question! But why our we here, most people go through there lives not questioning the reason why? People like us have ideas, views an urge to understand what this is all about? Do you think we are ever going to find the answer? I believe so. As our species consciously evolves...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Re seeds. I glanced through the post you attached, thank you, but will comment on only one point: I grew into a completed baby’s body in my mother’s womb was an unborn baby, alive and kicking in the womb . . . . from that I note the crucial point: the growing foetus is driven by the life of the moth...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Why those hints about a designer? My mere human brain tells me that “if” there were a designer of our Universe, such designer’s capability would be beyond our imagination, beyond our ideas of time, purpose and quality. If I had a swimming pool in my backyard, I would NOT just throw my child in it. A...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Re melancocky. Ifs and buts are useful to seek an answer. Any designer is inherently responsible for his/her creation. A possible designer, creator of the universe is beyond my comprehension. With my mere human mind I question the logic of first creating a large lump of matter and then blowing it ap...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Yes melancocky “life” is the key. Any who found themselves indoctrinated to believe that some “god’ or whatever is the creator can hold such god responsible for good and evil, not us. Live and let live, run for cover when it rains. Re Belinda : indeed dog and any creatures may have life in it, also ...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Re Belinda’s, I’m not clear what you’re driving at? Any life can stop any moment by any of various causes. The chemistry in a body relates to whatever has been fed into it, via whatever orifices. Any creature’s individuality departs from our presence at its death, regardless of its reputation.

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

In simple terms, we are here because our parents mated fruitfully. It led to our birth in our parents’ environment on planet earth. However, the 19 pages of comments show that we are somewhat like lost sheep.I may as well add mine about a possible objective for life. None of us have asked to be born...

Re: What is Life?

You are becoming a waste of time. Spitting the dummy shows anger; is your free will. History is rife with wars caused by failures of humans to discuss, listen, negotiate, live and let live, and by fanatic interpretations of religious beliefs. I’ll state again my answers to what the difference is be...
