The trouble with that, assuming you mean if you don't like it here gladly tell yourself is that [in my belief system anyway] once you are conceived, you exist. And once you exist, you can never stop existing [this is where the atheists have the advantage]. It's also why so many people consider abortion to be murder... even though merely a zygote, it's still a "person". Anyway, back to the subject at hand; presuming the existence of an eternal afterlife is correct, then killing yourself doesn't really solve the problem – it merely pisses off He who put you here. Or at least allowed you to be put here, however you care to look at it. BTW and interestingly [to me anyway...] this is also why Catholics say that contraception is wrong/murder, just like abortion is – that a life prevented, is the same as a life destroyed. I don't personally buy into that one. I'm keeping my daily pills, thank you very much! LOL

here are some important reasons why you are born:
* to work hard and pay Uncle Sam your taxes.
* to go to church and give $1 to the collector.
* to secretly go to the video store and rent porn movies.
* to pay high health insurance and make them rich while you stay poor.
* to be recruited to defend America's freedom and die in Iraq.
* to buy Hugh Hefner's magazine with someone's legs spread wide.
Every human being has a mind and he can decide about his life and destiny
* you can work hard and pay your family needs and help the others
* there are religions in which you can do your prayer without paying money, you
have just to search
* if you change your visions to things you will not need to watch such videos
YOUR LIFE IS WHAT YOU THINK IS LIFE, CHANGE YOUR PERCEPTION OF LIFE

We all love Jesus because he is the symbol of goodness and all good qualities.

Hi fellow earth residents :)

Hear is my opinion:

I think that the person who introduced this topic is very special. Why? Because I see too many people so obsessed with the rat race called Life that they never stop to actually ask this fundamental question.
Why is this fundamental? Well, we are all going to die one day.
How does that knowledge impact the way we live our life?

For me, I don't want to look back on my life and wish I lived differently...each individual I believe has an intuition as to what he/she needs to achieve in life (a calling...search and who will find it...look deeply within you)
For me, it is to LOVE more because I believe LOVE is what created us. The most powerful thing on earth is LOVE...there is a saying "Love can move mountains" and indeed I believe that... One example is a mother's love..Love forgives anything.....God is Love

For info, I have been always intrigued with Life (Why are we here? Who made us? Is it just in our brains? etc) and especially Life after death. I asked myself similar questions before and so far, I came to the conclusion that there are things in life we will never know the answers to and it is ok. We just need to get the best answer we can.

I suffered depression recently because I was deeply hurt from a breakup. I was so hurt that I felt I had no energy to pick myself back up. It was only through the genuine love of certain people I know that I manage to put back pieces of my life together and move up and up.

I wrote the above based on what I believe up to now...We might never know the reason why we are on earth...may be we will after we die but it will be too late...wouldn't it :p? So, my suggestion is to live life, love more and treat others like you would like to be treated. We all have a beating heart and I believe it did not just appear out of nowhere. It was all magnificently created by LOVE.

This is true, but why not be born in Heaven and just stay there? It's not an unreasonable question.

There's a reason we're here, but it's not the reason many of you think.

"To be, or not to be"

"....To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovered Country, from whose bourn
No Traveler returns, Puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have,
Than fly to others that we know not of.
Thus Conscience does make Cowards of us all...."

I guess the old "why are we here?" question. It is an age-old ponderance, to be sure! I personally think it's happenstance, luck-of-the-draw, a pure accident. Each of us is the result of that one random sperm, hitting the target before another one. I don't think there is any purpose to life, and so far as the old worn out "God never gives you more than you can handle" thing then why are there tens of thousands of suicides, worldwide, every year? And why would a supposedly loving God "give" you anything hurtful, bad negative and painful? To teach a lesson? To build character? No thank you, I would prefer to stay ignorant and have poor character! Whatever the afterlife brings, it's too bad we don't all have a choice in it. I do not believe they are, but I would prefer for the atheists to be right; that there is absolutely nothing waiting for us afterwards. Simply a cessation of existence, like turning off a lightbulb – and then someone smashing it. No more anything. That would be a truly peaceful thing to look forward to!

This realm is a form of punishment, a form of hell. We did wrong on our home planets and then were sent here to suffer until we understand that we should be better.

I think God gives everyone a chance to fully enjoy life here on Earth.

God also gives everyone a chance to contribute something to mankind.

I respectfully disagree with that. Some people are born with great physical, mental and social disadvantage, and they never fully recover to enjoy life. That's not the norm, but it does happen to those very few humans.
