Evolution and Purpose

(CORRESPONDENT'S COMMENTS)

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)


If there is no ultimate purpose or permanence, why does everyone behave as if there is? Animals behave without aim and purpose, by instinct. They don’t plan, they just exist. Human beings don’t. We are aware of time passing. We think about yesterday, and we think about the future. Many people think there might be something after death. Many want to be remembered after their death. We are so different to animals, to me it doesn’t make any sense unless we were created like this for a reason. I certainly could never believe that this feeling of purpose evolved.
