What is the meaning of life?

I don’t (believe) life has a meaning as a human race.  We have just evolved to the stage where we have the intelligence to act as we do.

I have of course read Darwin’s Origin & more recently the writings of Richard Dawkins which have re-affirmed my views.

Religious folk of course think otherwise were in a great (fluff) when Dawkins was here recently.

I was brought up to believe in “God the father almighty maker of heaven & earth” as many of us were, but have long given up such views.

If we do have a spirit, whatever that is, I can be quite overcome by the beauty of maintains, bush, rivers & sea.
