"I'm fine with that. From a Christian perspective familiar with these discussions, I think "Worship and Glorify God" includes that, but that isn't obvious, even to Christians."

"Interestingly, the Camus quote does not exclude being happy or living if you have the answer for what happiness consists of or find the meaning of life. I think this is (perhaps unintentionally) a good commentary on the fact that almost everyone…"

James Michael DeMaio replied to Jackson McDermott's discussion The meaning of life. in the group Fighters For Philosophy
"I would say that before and after all that our teleological purpose is to be human to the greatest extent possible. Your list is obviously inclusive of some of what that entails, but far from complete."

Jeffrey Elliott replied to Jackson McDermott's discussion The meaning of life. in the group Fighters For Philosophy
"Why must life have meaning beyond what we make for it? To imply a teleological conception demands that it can be objectively determined.  It cannot, so pragmatically (Never bar the path of inquiry) it is best to live in the way that works best…"

I'm going to read the books you recommended, (thought it will probably take a while before I actually finish them), and then I'm going to come back here and comment what I thought of them, at which point you should tell me if the Lando Calrissian trilogy was any good.

Deal?

So I'm new to the ning, but I joined a SW group and you had asked (yes, over a year ago, I apologize) if anyone recommended any Star Wars books, games, ect and I had to reply just in case you hadn't played it yet. Knights of the Old Republic I and II (specifically one though, game two is glitchy because it was rushed for a Christmas deadline).

But yeah, I know that this is random and very late, but it's a brilliant story.

Ich liebe die Ärzte! Und auch die anderen deutschen Künstler in deiner Liste. Außer den Toten Hosen, aber mit denen und den Ärzten ist es wie mit Vanille und Schokolade - man kann nur eines mögen :P

Ich bin in Stuttgart aufgewachsen und lebe jetzt in Berlin :)
