I received this questions by text last week.
I’ve just been told that the purpose to life is to procreate. That all our actions boil to one meaning alone and that is ensure the succession of our lineage. I’ve brought to the table the topic of meaning and have been countered with the belief that meaning is only chemicals and that we merely assign meaning and have discovered good and bad merely because if affects our survival. How would you respond to this worldview?
Listen to my response here and comment below on how you would respond!
Here are the videos/podcast that I mentioned in the podcast.
- Understanding Objections From The Correct Worldview
- Sam Harris on free will being an illusion
- Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss on free will
