Yep, this is it. Life is what you make of it. If you sit on your duff, it's gonna be boring and non-productive. Get out there and make your mark on the world, leave a legacy behind.

This conversation reminds me of one of my friends. They had a friend who was feeling suicidal, who said "why not? The world will still turn, the seasons will still come, so why not?" The first friend said "yes, that will keep happening, but think of your family. Think of your mother, who will cry every time she sees your picture. Think of how she will silently weep whenever you come up in a conversation. Think of your father, who will get a deadned look in his eyes every time he remembers you. You are loved, and that means more than life."

No. For those who believe in Creation, a glorious future awaits those who love life and who act now to save their lives. But you many ask: What will that future be like? It will be nothing like the distressing life that so many of the human family experience today. “The former things”—the sorrow, death and pain of this present system—will “have passed away.” So, what will follow? God himself declares: “Look! I am making all things new.” (Revelation 21:4, 5) In the new world to come, the heavenly king, Jesus Christ, will rule lovingly as an “Eternal Father” over the entire family of mankind. “To the abundance of [his] princely rule and to peace there will be no end.” 

Justice and righteousness will be the foundations of that kingdom. (Isaiah 9:6, 7) How satisfying and enjoyable life will be under those conditions! It will have purpose, in doing God’s will on earth with love toward our fellowman. Jesus assures us that even those in the graves “will hear his voice” and come forth to enjoy that paradise earth. (John 5:28, 29) What a wonderful and happy hope! No, this is not all there is to life. The "real life", yes everlasting life is yet to come! (1 Timothy 6:12)

Yes, this IS all there is, so why do so many waste it . . .?

Evolution is supported by facts whereas Creation is supported by the writings of Iron Age man, and "borrowed" myths.

Creation is easier to understand if one is simple minded.

Why not both? Seriously I don't get why so many supposed "Christians" think you have to have one or the other. Most Christians globally accept evolution. In the Western world only Americans and some British seem to challenge evolution. Christians in other countries just laugh at us and continue to believe in evolution without it hurting their faith. And as Ancient Hippy said above, "life is what you make of it". You define if this is all there is to life.

"Is this all there is" sounds about as ungrateful as a child who chucked a wobbly and threw his Christmas present on the floor because he didn't get what he wanted.

Of course this is all there is., Holy Dooley, how much more do you want? This is EVERYTHING and we have access to it all. If you're looking for a pie in the sky when you die, that might be another matter altogether, and I refer you to one of the great philosophers of the past, Omar Khayyam:

Oh, come with old Khayyam, and leave the Wise
To talk; one thing is certain, that Life flies;
One thing is certain, and the Rest is Lies;
The Flower that once has blown forever dies.

If you're wondering about this I would watch the movie God's not dead. It does help to kind of explain all this stuff.

I don't see why we can't have faith and evolution. Just because you or I believe in God doesn't mean we can't accept evolution MusicWolf. (:

We spend so much time arguing about if God exists or not when neither side really gains anything regardless of who wins. These kind of conversations don't ever end well

It is easier to believe in a loving, creative God who created us for a purpose in this life and in the next. He wants a people that will freely love Him and want to be a part of the future He has for us.

It is natural to believe in God. In every experience in life things are created by someone. When you have order there are laws, when you have laws there is a law maker. That is accepted in all facets of life. Why, then it comes to our creator, this natural progession of thought is ignored? What those that ignore it must do is justify their reason for doing so, It goes against the natural order of things.

Well I know this sounds silly, but I believe in God and evolution (not creation). Now there's nothing wrong with believing in creation, that's just apart of the religion. I find evolution easier to believe though because it has been scientifically proven. Science has showed us we homosapiens came from Neanderthals  who came from chimpanzees, which explains our similarities. Also life is what you make it I believe in heaven but for now you've gotta get out there and have fun. God's not gonna do everything for you

Really, this is all there is to life. This, and only this. The facts tell us that. However, that doesn't make life any less meaningless. As human beings, we've added symbolism and meanings to the human anatomy. We're capable of sexualizing the human body for hundreds of years to come. We're capable of finding meanings in even the simplest of things. What this tells me is that, yes, life is meaningless and this is all there is, but that we are more capable of enjoying our lives than any other species.
