What is the religious purpose of life?

I'm writing something and I have to state what religion says about WHY were here.  How does God answer that? Why am I here?

So far I've put down: 1 to worship god. 2 to exert your free will and be judged by it.

It's been so long, I can't remember what the religious purpose of life is.  But I do remember all those stupid "Got Purpose?" signs everywhere.  Can someone enlighten me.

Why is There Even a Question About God?

This struck me funny this morning as I was contemplating -lost in thought.  Even the question itself, "Does God exist?", is bizarre.



My girls will watch a questionably scary movie and immediately be wary of the dark rooms in our house.  I have several rational arguments to belay, to ease their worries.  Arguments that allow me to run through creepy old houses in the dark no-problem.  Here's 2 examples...



Me stating rationally: There were no…

My Official Statement

Everyone in the U.S. Military at some point learns this official statement which helps them answer questions of a classified nature: "I can neither confirm or deny blah blah blah...". It's simple and automatic.



You know, it would be very useful to have my own official statement to practice for when someone asks "what religion are you?".  ...and here it is:



I choose to conduct my life NOT following FAIRY-TALES. I feel it is fine for…

Fun Link Than YouTube Gave Me: Jim Jefferies - God is For Idiots

Ya know, YouTube does a good job of suggesting videos you might like.
This "God is For Idiots" made me LOL -but is a tad raunchy.

And I Thought "I" Was Crazy...

What follows is a question I asked honestly, in the discussion section of a story on ABCNews.com.  That is an EXCELLENT place to battle a theist.  But "honestly", I would follow "the truth" whatever it would be -if it was the truth.  Still it seems, I will remain safely on this site for a very long time :).  



Me: Really, everyone, I'm ready to believe the truth and join your group. Please, someone answer my question with something plausible? I am not…

The Poem From the Movie The Grey

There's a great little poem that's read in the movie The Grey with actor Liam Neeson.  

It was written by director/writer Joe Carnahan.

Once more into the fray

Into the last good fight I'll ever know

A Better View of the Feud Between Science & Religion

My brother brought me this link from reddit.
http://www.reddit.com/r/HistoricalWhatIf/comments/11oyew/what_if_the_prophet_mohammed_was_never_born/c6odycc

The title is unrelated because this short essay gives facts about the history of conflict between science & religion. A nice vantage to view our current state.
