Did I just hear someone say:

"That's it! That's Life! I'm just a feeder? The meaning of Life is to be a feeder?"

Hasbeen,

And just when you were about to bring your fighter into land on the deck of the aircraft carrier you suddenly woke up and realised it wasn't a joy stick you had in your hand (well not the sort of joy stick one finds on a plane anyway.)

Misopinionated,

Do you mean either/or or do you perceive that some viewpoints may be somewhere in between ? As I understand it, Newton - as well as devising the Laws of Thermodynamics which apply more or less throughout the universe (or did until Einstein invented relativity) - was not just very religious but also believed in aspects of the occult. And alchemy too. Yes, I know, people are weird.

And many of us atheists and agnostics can have empathy with believers, to the extent that we can try (and maybe succeed) to see the world as believers may see it, to at least see where they are coming from, to try to get on the same (or a similar) page.

As you get older and move up from TAFE, and towards actual higher study, you may realise that there is more than either-or in the way people (perhaps most of us) think.

Joe

PS. Just kidding about Einstein inventing relativity, before anybody explodes with indignation and deep knowledge.

"I don't believe there is any meaning to life, other than what you give it. I have always believed that you could do & be anything you wanted, if you wanted it enough, with the proviso that only those who have some ability will want to exceed, rather than enjoy an activity".

I like that a lot. Well said.

All I remember, when young, was having life choice and picking bad ones.
Chris Lewis,
Well, I never chose to get robbed on several occasions & never chose to to be laid off work because of some idealists ruining the economy !
I never chose to gallivant around the Globe & bring back a decease either ! I never chose for an army of bureaucrats to put up hurdles around people !
