← A universe without purpose

Jay G's Avatar Jump to comment 21 by Jay G

I find it more comforting to live in a universe without purpose. If I believed that God directed everything that happens in the entire universe towards some pre-determined final moment in history, then I would cower in fear everyday. I would also be forced to explain to myself the "reason" for everything that happened to me, the good and the bad. If the universe has no purpose, then what happens just happens and that's the end of the story.
