Sure, and making you way to the next generation is analogous to live forever (on the gene level). Well, if one can "make his way" to his offspring in a greater spam of life, I can´t see how that is negative. Our ancestors lived for 30, 40 years at most, now we live 80. What if we could live 160? 500? Better, huh?

Purpose in life... I´ll tell you the purpose of an atheist life, Shmuley. It is the same for all human beings. We all want to be immortal, living the best way possible and having enough time to get the most out of our minds. But that wont happen if we die within a century. It will only happen if we conquer nature, with knowledge, science and live for millenia. Scientists not pastors or rabbis will give us that. Aubrey de Gray, not Jesus, is working on that for us. We should support people like him to revolutionize the way we live and the purpose we seek for our lifes.

Speak for yourself! I have no desire to live forever - I know death is the way of all life, a necessity for evolution. I consider it my moral duty to make way for the next generation.
