we are here because we are born here. the earth resources help us grow and survive. when we die, we all become a fertilizer and help others to grow and survive.

Something or nothing: that was the choice.A world filled with robots or a world filled with INDIVIDUALS who have the power to make choices -all kinds of choices!Good-bad love-hate up-down left-right and so on...I believe that our Creator CHOSE to make us and He loves us enough to know what is best for us.Death seems ghastly and horrible but we ALL must experience it-everyone one that lives. I believe that this life is but the first step in our cosmic Heavenly supernatural journey towards an undreampt of ultra-fabulous eternity.

We are because we are. When we die we will cease to be. The time between birth and death is ours to do with as we please. Have fun with it, there is nothing afterward.

Multiplying is good, I enjoy the process.
But along with breeding we should also realize that we have the duty, if not purpose, of helping one another.
To serve God and our fellow man is why we are here.

Can't you just serve your fellow man without the myths?

We are here because the Earth revolves around the sun in just the right spot as to become a planet that can sustain our type of beings (Mankind,plants animals ect...)How do you suppose this happened?Oh and while the earth was being formed another planet crashed into it and they merged. Thats when the moon was formed as well.Is this all happening by chance? or luck? read the Bible for yourselves and see what it has to say about what God says.

Religion = superstition
We have only been here for three million years,(depending on how one defines 'human') and the industrial revolution was only a century or two ago. Far too soon to know yet if there's something that could be called 'a reason why' we're here. No reason to assume there has to be a reason 'why'.

look up on a starry night. All the stars you see are suns, just like ours, some bigger some smaller. That is just in our galaxy. Add to that, that there are millions more galaxies just like ours and you begin to realize just how small we are and how insignificant we really are to the whole skeem of things. All we are are tiny little microbes to a much larger being.(?)

I don't think God needs anything.

But I do know that when God walked on the earth he gave us two commandments;

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’

The second is this:‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these."
Mark 12:30,31

How do you love someoene you dont know? As a christian I'm sure you'll say you have developed a relationship with God, and I 'm sure you believe that, but a Muslim might say the same thing, as might a Deist.

For myself its impossible to find the good in bible God. Or maybe a better way to put it would be: impossible to overlook the bad. Therefore impossible to love him. Does that make me bad? Shrug, I'm really not a bad person. Far better then alot of christians I've known. Better in a sense that I am morally superior to them in certain areas (fidelity, giving, honesty to name a few). I certainly dont deserve to be sentenced to eternal, unimaginable punishment.
