What is it all about?

This post is in the 'life'section of myLot, and that's precisely what the title question refers to. The older I get, the less I know, it seems. Yes, I can claim some 'life experience', and that's good for dealing with life's situations, but it doesn't answer any fundamental questions, does it? I'm not a believer, and I'm certainly not a dogmatist. The only thing I can see is that it is about learning, maybe without any final objective, just passing it on to our children. And if there is a God (I don't say there isn't, I just don't know), he or she must be having a good time just watching us. So how do you feel about this? And please remember, this is not the 'Religion' section of myLot, so please no answers that claim to be the truth, and nothing but the truth - they aren't out there. How do you make sense of this weird-funny-tragic thing that we call life?

A good post indeed. You are right, of course, there is nothing we can be sure of, but for me,something tells me life goes on. Watching the seasons as they come and go gives me hope. Flowers return every spring, it appears everything has a purpose, why not us?

Yes, i certainly feel something about your thoughts. The older you get, somehow the more confuse you'd become especially by constants listening and reading media news and events. Somehow, sometimes life makes no sense. THere certainly has a lot of questions and only a handful of answers, and instead of waking up a wiser person, on certain days you just feel like you get tossed up and down without any direction. Some questions are: * Why does the innocent suffer and the guilty go on enjoying the fruits of their labor? * Why does the children suffers the most when they are the ones who should be enjoying life? Questions like that the buffles our mind on a daily basis. I admit I'm a believer but still there are many questions left unanswered.
