The Purpose of Life:

Today I was reading a River Runs Through It, by Norman MacClean. There is a film by the same name based on it. I had read that the book was much better than the film, so I thought I would give the book a read.

Something caught my eye at the beginning of the book. A catechism:
Q. What is the chief end of man?
A. To glorify God and enjoy Him forever!
That seems to pretty much provide a direct answer to what the purpose of life is for humans. I'm not sure I agree with it.


  1. If I were God and created man to glorify me forever, I would make them so that they were always happy and with me.

    Besides, that can't be humans only purpose, we gotta eat too.

  2. Replies
    1. Humans in general must reproduce, or eventually there would be nobody to glorify god.

  3. There would be kittens, they are pretty lovable.
