the meaning of life

Postby Larem » Thu Jan 26, 2006 7:23 am

so the other day i was watching a walk to remember, cute little flim with the super hawt mandy moore, and it got me thinking, and i do believe i may have stumbled onto the meaning of life.

in the beginning, god created adam and eve, 2 souls. then they sinned and were banished from the garden of eden. they pissed god off. somehow, he messed up in creation. but he was determined to solve this problem in soul creation by weeding out the traits that are evil, those that caused adam and eve to sin.

when they were cast out, they got together, had sex, and reproduced. upon doing so, they each gave up a part of their souls and the new life that was created had traits from each of the parents. over time, this goes on and on, with the 2 original souls spliting with each new life brought into existence.

i believe that the reason we are all here, and the reason god won't acknowlege any of us personally, is because our souls are not free of evil yet. much like how a horse or dog breeder weeds out the traits they find undesirable, god is doing the same with us. he is awaiting the day when there comes to be 2 perfect souls in this world once again. 2 souls free from evil and sin.

we are all here just to breed. nothing else matters in the eyes of god, for we are all damned because in the portion of the original souls we have inside us, there is evil.

the bible is a very good clue as to what god expects from the 2 perfect souls. and he predicts his return to earth, but doesn't say when, because he doesn't know when this science experiment called life will yeild the 2 perfect souls he wants.

to those of you that say "w/o suffering, there'd be no compassion".......eat poop, because god doesn't care about us, as long as we breed, he'll get what he wants in the end, and the rest of us will be cast off into nothingness for all eternity.

now maybe i've gone and smoked myself stupid, or maybe i'm smarter than everyone gives me credit for, either way, i'm sure this will lay good ground for a new teflor rant.

Does humanity need a purpose? Does moss need a reason to grow on a boulder? If the earth were a boulder, we could very well just be some moss.

Does the bible really have the merit that everyone places in it? J.R.R. Tolkien wrote in an inspired manner and of an entire world, which to some degree we all live in as mudders. Does his message, which we know to be direct and pure, have to be ranked below that of the bible, which has had centuries of kings and popes with agendas influencing it?

Yes, it's true that elves and dwarves don't exist on earth these days, but since the bible talks in metaphors, couldn't the ships that carried the elves away be metaphors for space travel?

I didn't need to read to the end to see that you had been smoking when you wrote that. Do you realize that you just proclaimed to the world that Mandy Moore flick holds the answer to the greatest question in the universe?

I guess then there are two options...

We could all have lots of sex until two perfect souls are born. The quantity method.

Or maybe we need someone to be in charge of breeding humans. You know, to make sure none of our bad traits are given to the next generation. Someone to keep stupid and ugly people from breeding. The quality method.

Having said all that, the situation has been handled, so this thread is pretty much at an end. -Kossuth

Yes! Lets start human selective breeding! Also! Let us begin the use of soylent green! I say we begin the soylent green recipe off with Corth! Then we can grok him in fullness.

So, which nation on earth will god choose to bear these two perfect souls? America? Israel? India?

And do you believe that as time progresses, humanity is approaching perfection without sin? It seems to me, as a joyful sinner and enthusiastic nonchristian, that traditional religious morals are slowly losing ground as the centuries slip by. When breeding dogs, you get purebreeds from purebreeds, you don't mix breeds for ten generations and then suddenly come out with a prizewinner. If god is breeding us for perfection, then it would quite literally take divine intervention to produce it.

if you are going to use the bible as a means to explain the "meaning of life" please use the whole bible, not just the adam and eve parts.

As scarey as it may sound, I think Larem's argument actually has some merit -- although he relys too much on ad hoc assumptions. Keep workin on it buddy, you may just figure it out.

to quote the insane clown posse, "i think the world is too crowded, and maybe i'm gonna do something the mutha fuk about it"

the more people die, the fewer remaining people there are alive to be burdened with the cumulative transgressions you have imposed on us. when only two people are left alive, we can start all over again.

this time though, temptation will be overcome. adam v2.0 will have lots of porn to use when eve v2.0 holds out!

Larim, you just shot your whole argument all to hell. If mudder guys get laid, then God must have SOME kind of pity on them!

Either that, or they met a mudder chick... a REAL one, because Satan, as you know, wears many disguises. In the mud, he wears falsies and plucks his eyebrows and calls himself... ummm....

Hey Mike... what was the name of that little elven chick you used to play?
