    In my opinion, the meaning of life varies from person to person. Much like fate and destiny. The meaning of life as a whole, well, I don't think there is one particular meaning. I've always thought that we're just an experiment (think of us as bacteria and the earth as a petri dish) for some sort of God and they just sit back and see what happens. If there is a meaning, then we'll likely never find out. If we were truly meant to know, then it would be an instinctual thing, implanted on you from birth.

    Personally I think the meaning of life is seeking out things you enjoy and exploring them thoroughly, absorbing knowledge about things that are important or interesting or just downright strange and fascinating. Building strong bonds with fellow humans and doing your part to maintain the world for future generations, helping your fellow man, and creating and exploring yourself. Learning, growing, contributing, feeling, moving forward. Finding things that you're not only good at, but you love, and practicing consistently. The world is filled with things that are fascinating and wonderful, even if it's just trying new foods or meeting new people, or learning a simple but interesting fact. That's just my take on it though. I suppose everyone has their own personal meaning or purpose.

    There is no meaning of life! We're just one hell of a bad joke!

    That's it for my philosophy.

    I've always felt that the meaning of life is to be happy. To feel confident and comfortable and have a good life.

    That said, I don't think that there's one right answer. My perception is to be happy. Others might be different, so technically speaking, this is an opinion based topic.

    In my opinion, the meaning of life is to simply live it.

    I do not think there is a meaning. We as humans cannot change the outcome of the universe - or even our home planet. We live to make ourselves happy and then we die.

    Whoops.

    The meaning of life is to create your own meaning, because there isn't an objective one.

    I think the meaning of life is that after all our experience and learning new perspectives, we individually build our own take on what it means to be alive, and whether we chose to be satisfied with ourselves or not. And at the end of everything, everyone is just simply trying to figure out their own way to happiness through their own views to create their path, thus creating the meaning of existence.

    I hope that wasn't too confusing

    For me, the meaning of life is what you make it out to be. I am crucial on my view as an atheist, and dealing with religious family all the time. However this also allowed me to ponder the notion of death. So because of this, I want to learn as much of the world and the universe and more as I can. This is why I am working on becoming a physics (Degree in Physics) so I can work as a cosmologist or in another sense, a physicist working to unlock the wonders of the universe around us. Since life is short and you get one life, even if it is a hard view to grasp, I want to spend it by gaining knowledge. So my meaning is the Pursuit of Knowledge.
