The Meaning of Life

JDeal Avatar
banned8y, 10m agoPosted 8 years, 10 months ago
As many of you have discovered, I ask this question a lot. So an idea sprung to mind, ask ordinary people - people below the HUKD VIP barrier. The people that walk the streets we would never dare walk. The people that are the reason for the question 'Can someone not know the meaning of melancholic and be melancholic?' The people that don't have cutlery.

My tour began in a small town called Doncaster, where I met a group of teenagers whilst they were fulfilling their meaning of life - much enjoyment was had by all. I spoke to them inbetween squeals and burps. They explained in an in-depth conversation which lasted less than five minutes - when asked that profound question 'What is the meaning of life?' - they distracted me and stole my wallet. I later found a more intoxicated group who told me, in a voice similar to Gordon Brown's, "The meaning of life is quite simple, it is a matter of binge drinking and increasing the rate of teenage pregnancies. It is stressful, preparing for my GCSEs whilst thinking of my unborn child, destined to be named Aubergine. But if anything happens, today's society has made it possible to repeat either." The same question was asked to another girl, the answer was similar but referred to her SATS instead.

Which led to a wonderful conclusion to a completely random and unnecessary thread. Next up! JDeal'll fix it - A show where JDeal will fix anything that is incredibly simple, where the viewer recieves a rep* comment engraved with the words 'JDeal fixed it for me'.

*Rep begging, borrowing and stealing are all considered offences against god.

It is so sad the meanderings of disillusioned teachers. We thought that we were going to solve all the ills of the developed world but instead became part of the problem.
Doncaster - a town little visited since the team became a by-word for the northern decline in morale/employment/electricity generation. The full monty seems philosophical by comparison and Doncaster has some seriouly difficult sets of traffic lights to negotiate when you are pregnant.

A northern delicacy - I must have missed out on that sizzling spammyiness with fried tomatoes and toast.

I fear JD was lost both in body and mind when saying he started out in Doncaster.
The word "aubergine" has as far as records began never been used that far North.

I prefer to think he was in Dover, it would explain many things.

But. bizaarly( Can't remember how to spell!), the under class of Doncaster, intuitively knew that it was morally indefensible to crete an arbitrary new class barrier. Their stumbling utterances revealing an inate understanding of the sociological impact of calling a child Aubergine rather than the more acceptable 'Egg-plant - Lucy' so beloved of the upper classes; 'We called a vegetable ( or epononymous human) by its real name but we understand the consequences'.

Sounds more interesting than the jeremy kyle show where his favour things are always blaming it on the guy or saying "its because of the drugs" to a guy who smoked some about 4 years ago but yet still has a go at him lol. totally hate that show i wish someone would just do what they used to do on the jerry springer show and someone knock him out, but the bouncers on even the jermy kyle show even pull people apart if they so much as look at someone in the wrong way.

A bit of a rant,but if you are serious...the answer is LOVE.
1 Corinthians 13: 1-13 is a good place to start. Something which life has taught me personally is, "God lives within the human heart,seek him and you will find him" :-D
#11
Erm... uh huh uh huh. I guess you have guts to ask those kids. They might have happyslapped you :(. There is no real answer to the question. "The meaning of life is how one looks at it" is what I say.

Fair enough if this is what you personally believe in but many such as myself do not buy into religion of any sort.

As for the meaning of life, well I have asked this for most of my life. I am like that, I question things a lot and my existence. When it comes down it though It does not really matter, trying to find a purpose is pointless to me, in my opinion. Until I go I will live my life as best as I can and enjoy it and try and do things I really want to do, like more traveling to new destinations.

I like the text but not the conclusion. God does not live in the human heart. "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9).

Actually this statement is religious. It is like saying, "I do not do politics, but I do not agree with the Labour Party". As soon as you say you do not accept something, you are setting yourself up as an alternative to it.

The way I see it is,that we all have the ability to communicate with God. I know there are many non believers out there,but if you are honest with yourself,you will realize and accept that there are no coincidences in life. Once you do that,you will open yourself up to the fact that there is a "higher power" trying to guide you to the truth of yourself. The reason I feel that God lives within the human heart is that once you remove all the obstacles that you have built up,mentally,emotionally,physically,you will see that God does exist and you will feel him within. It is not easy,and just because you know this truth,life doesn't become simple,but it does give you a purpose and a sense of self,and makes you realize that we are all connected,all one,all here to help each other and share and experience and express God's love.

As an Atheist I find your post extremely arrogant, patronising and insulting to anyone who doesn't believe in God! At the end of the day you have belief, I have no problem with that as it's a personal belief and I respect your right to it. However you seem to have a problem with those who don't share that belief and say that if we just open ourselves up then we will realise and accept and then we'll believe the same as you. What about respecting someone's right not to believe without resorting to the old 'lost lamb' rhetoric?

Whatever you may believe, you don't have any more answers than I do, but to state that the existence of God as fact is wrong. You only have your belief and the way you interpret the world around you as 'proof' of God, as I said before I'm happy for you as it makes you happy to believe that. However, I believe that God doesn't exist and there are other factors that explain the world around me. Who are you to say that your belief is valid and mine isn't?

I don't see that believing in God is the only qualification needed to give you a purpose and sense of self, those are both easily achievable in the absence of belief.

I think you were just trying to put Doncaster and it's youth population to shame. You have always known the answer to be 42 and trying to introduce Aubergines into the debate was a truly shameful move.

If you really want to "spark friendly controversial debate" why didn't you pick intensive parrot farming in Hawaii as a subject ?
