    you just cant believe in something which doesn't hold up.

    Very true, it needs physical evidence.

    For me space and time itself, the atoms, electrons, photons, waves are sign of God.

    For me God=Nature

    I rather believe, (gives power) than not. I think Pascal sensed that. I need the best physical evidence and I got Nature.

    I understand how small and simple I am.

    I understand that I am still Valuable. I have Energy, Matter and Information in Space(Time).

    but i dont think the atheist is 'betting' on anything.

    Of course they are, it's right there in pascals wager

    What atheists betting on? It is a bit unclear even I read this forum since a while.

    As far as I understand they are betting on Nothing when it comes to God.

    The crazy thing is that the only supernatural I can sense is the sense of Nothing. Space, time, energy and matter free state. 0. 

    God = 0

    The purpose of life is to choose, and the choice itself is simple. 

    Choose kindness


    Choose blindness

    Your purpose is to choose.


    The choice is rather a possibility of life than the purpose of it.

    I.e something can be alive even it has no choice, for example bacterias. 

    My purpose of life is to understand Nature as good as I can, and positively impact its presence and future.

    I have already choosen a purpose, I do not want/need to change this one. 

    I wanna know more about Nature. 

    Learning I would call one of the purposes of life.

    There's a lot of reasons why you are you, but there's no reason to be you. 


    Who else I could be? My experience and appearance is universally unique. 

    I just can be myself and I think there is a reason to be Me.

    I am aware of my biophysical values so I call myself conscious.

    Energy with consciousness.

    There is an energetic change during death, and we know from the laws of thermodynamics that energy can not disappear from the system. 

    The Energy who I am,  will exist further in some form as part of Nature, even my material appearance will be long decayed. 

    Of this I am sure of.

    I always, wanna be a positive impact on reality. 

    I think my life is a possibility to understand nature (space,time,energy,matter and information) and experience, test and sense its appearance. 

    Who else could I be if not the conscious Me?

    I am the result of a 13.8 billion years long biophysical process.

    Time and Space is a reason for me to be.

    This reason alone is enough for me, to wanna be.

    There is NO evolution if length does not exit.

    Therefore length drives evolution.

    True. Very good insight.

    Length is part of Space.

    I thought it would be enough to mention Time, because since a while, for a reason, we use space and time as one physical entity: spacetime. 

    But sure you right.

    Selection drives evolution, not time.

    Selection happens by Time.

    There is No selection if time does not pass.

    Than time is a prerequisite of Selection as well.

    For me your logic is flawed, when you try to neglect time, in a case of a time dependent biophysical process.

    Thanks. I was having a hard time coming up with a response

    No wonder as my response was on

    Evolution is a blind watchmaker. Nothing drives it.

    The difference is that my note makes sense .

    Without time there is no Evolution(iNow recognize that too), so time has impact on Evolution I.e drives it.

  7. Crazy what some potato, veggies and meet can add up to and here we are.

    The overall reason is to Be(better).

    Selective pressure influencing this urge to be better.

    Knowledge and experience influence faster and better adaption to physical changes. 

    The final Purpose is: to make Sense, what is Reality.

    Are you saying that gravity is equivalent to "drive" or "motivation"?

    In this case yes.

    Without gravity the water would not flow since there is no motivator influencing that motion of water. 

    Does the water aware of its physical properties?

    It can not behave on any other way as water if the physical circumstances do not change. A simple level of physical awareness I would say.

    "Purpose" implies a reason for being.

    There are a lot of reasons why you are and what you are. You might not have any more reasons to be (which would be very sad) but I am sure it was not true in your twenties and you had a lot of recognized reasons for your existence. I.e the studies and works you made, how you planned and developed your life...
