@THUMPTABLE: but religion has an ethical component through the supernatural but I see where your coming from :).

Life is a human reflection of existence. It's all a mirror and sometimes we forget we are looking at ourselves in much of it, because it's existence is dependent on us. There is no mirror if there isn't a human standing there.

From what I noticed in life is that some people are born lucky and some are born unlucky. Then, it just matters what you do after that. It either goes uphill or downhill.

I think this is pretty accurate sentiment. There's an incredible aspect of luck in life. Everything else after that is idealisms constructed by people who so desperately want to believe they hold some semblance of control over their lives, as well meaning as they are. It's what they have to believe. People don't choose to be born into African villages where they starve and watch their family starve to death in the midst of a civil war. People don't choose to be diagnosed with cancer at a young age. Sure, they deal with it and "make out of life what it gives them", but that doesn't mean they're Bill Gates because they show such initiative and determination. Oftentimes the greatest of determination appears as the lowest of achievements.

You're unlucky, and you try to make the best of it and often still end up with a shit hand. Or you're born lucky and lay all the credit at your feet while disregarding those as unlucky as lazy and scum.

@gettingonwithgaminglife: Yes but that was already around long before any religion was thought up.

@THUMPTABLE: I see your point but the difference is I belive religion was never thought up but something from God. I guess we have to wait until the end of time to see what happens.

@gettingonwithgaminglife: You speak as if there is only 1 claim for a god when there have been hundreds.
It is never a good thing when being told what to think, especially from the primitive books.

I'm agnostic. I'm not sure if there is a god either way. I do believe in ghost. I've experienced enough not to believe.

@MirkoS77: A lot. Everything from shadow figures that everyone see's, to someone running up and down stairs at 2am (that was annoying and why I avoid 2 story houses). Even cups moving in front of people. The worst was the whispers in the kitchen after I just moved in with her to our own house, she heard them too. It follow's me where every I go. Friends don't like staying at my house overnight. Nothing has ever happened to me physically and others see it, so I've never worried about it

Part of me believes in God. I feel like life is extremely meaningful to us, if you see how most of us cling to it. But I feel like we're lost. Nobody seems to have the definite answers. You could also call that a freedom. I would call it lost. I don't think most people know what to do in life aside from trying to secure their own. They can believe in things, but if you ask about it it's a belief, it's not a knowing. And I think that if we were to find some likely answers, they could give us a sense of direction and purpose that is very much desired.

And I think that will happen. But can this be achieved with our minds alone, when it seems like there are more questions raised with every answer we find? Can we ever truly believe in our ideas enough to create a clearer overview of truly likely paths for us to take? I don't know. Maybe through the assistance of AI and tools we may be able to help machines understand the world better than we can as human beings, and follow their lead.

Whether life is wonderful or another way around all depends on our views of point. As a student, i enjoyed life with pink-tinted glass. i have a good family with my caring parents. I didn't do well at school, but they didn't stress me out. as long as i'm a nice child, they're happy with it. When i start working, things start to be different. Work pressure and sometimes 'evil' coworkers. At first, i'm shocked. But now it's okay. As i don't care much about what others think like before, things are easier for me. I just try to finish my work's daily work KPI, save money to go traveling, enjoy my interests - current ones are digging into mantigames' online games and learning to master at cooking. And I treasure those I love, especially my beloved family
