The meaning of lifeSince the dawn of time, the ultimate question has been asked in a number of ways. Why do we exist? What is the meaning of life? Does God exist? What is the origin of the universe? How does the world exist, and what is its origin or source of creation? Why is there something rather than nothing?
This site offers you the possibility to discuss this fundamental metaphysical question with others. It also allows you to share your opinion and react to other people's points of view. What do you believe in? What do you think is the meaning of life?
Whether you are a believer, an atheist, an agnostic, or a clever mix of all three, you are welcome! Your point of view can be serious, absurd, even bordering on completely nuts. However, the following two things are essential to this dialogue: respect and an open mind.
Respect: you may defend your opinion and try to prove the falsity of another, but it is forbidden to attack its author directly. Fascism and generalisations are strictly verboten!
An open mind: if you can't handle having your convictions being put into question, this might not be the place for you. For this same reason, a sense of humour is highly recommended! If your beliefs forbid their being made fun of, you might not want to participate in this dialogue.

Please note that this site is neutral and does not promote any one religion or belief in particular. The opinions and texts that appear on the site are the sole responsibility of their authors.
Also note that this is not a support group for depressed people who are wondering if life is worth living. If you are depressed or suicidal, PLEASE go see a specialist.
The site reserves the right to refuse and delete any submitted content without notice.
There are no strict rules on what content will be deleted, but here are the two main guidelines :
- External links
If you post a link to another website, without adding more content than "Go check that site if you want to know what is the meaning of life!", your post will be deleted. But if you post a link and then you explain what that site is about and why you think it is interesting, then it will probably be fine.
In other words : if we feel you're only trying to get users to go to the linked site (for whatever reason : promotion, trying to convert readers to your beliefs, etc.), that's not acceptable. If you start a discussion here and the linked site is relevant to that discussion, that's fine!
- Quotes from holy books
If your post is full of quotes from an holy book (the Bible, the Koran, the Bhagavad Gita or any other) it will probably be deleted. This site is made to discuss your opinion on the meaning of life. All beliefs and religions are welcome but you have to explain why you believe this or that. Repeatedly quoting an holy book, doesn't explain anything to those who don't share your beliefs.
- "My life is miserable" kind of messages
If you are depressed with your life and need help, please go see a doctor. They can help you.
