: Some of these positions are absolutely amazing. The mind's desire to live forever is powerful indeed. Religions rise and fall, creatures rise and fall, and we try to make sense of it all. Study history, study science, destroy all barriers, and let the teachings throughout your young childhood (derived from your specific culture) exit your mind. Talk with Professors of History, Philosophy, Chemistry, and Biology. Confusion, fear, "the unkown". We want to know, we must know, but can we. Do we. Perhaps those who claim to have the answers are the most dangerous among us. Find, question, ask how not why.

Yanniru It must be H for HOW as in 'Ask how not why'. I applaud!! ..and I think it may be possible to answer to the HOW using the methods of science. However, it's fun to speculate on the why. It's anybody's guess. There is not one piece of scripture that I know of that answers the question of why we exist. There's lots on WHAT as in what is or what to do, and even on HOW to do it. But that's a different HOW outside the scope of science for now, but not forever, however.
