Life's Purpose

As an atheist, I refuse to believe that life's only purpose is to find happiness. To examine one's life and finding and knowing one's self is far more precious. And then, indeed, to make life worth living - why must be truthful and useful and compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have had a reason for having lived on this earth. Thus, to leave this world one day a better place than how we found it. In the meantime, as an atheist, for me to believe that I can find and enjoy more happiness, but only after I am dead with God in heaven I consider such thoughts as the highest form of ridiculosity, if the the lowest form of ludicrosity.

as a noboby, i agree that life's purpose is to find happiness. to examine one's life and finding one's self are just a mean to have this happeness. the simple formula to is: person+achievements=happiness
if a person wants to examine his/her life and find her/his self then he/she has succeded, we could say that, that was an achievement. and the result of such an achievement, she/he would be happy.
-and that particular person get his apparent happiness, a happiness which is limited and finite. hence human being is a finite being.

I quote for you my mentor Bertrand Russell:

"Happiness is the nonetheless true happiness because it must come to an end, nor do thought and love lose their value because they are not everlasting."
