1. Purpose of Life
Every human being is continuously engaged in fulfilling a purpose. From the breath of air that wetake, to the sophisticated sky scrapers that we build, we can intelligently attribute a purpose toevery single one of our actions with ease. For instance, we eat food in order to gain nourishment, wework to make a living, we sleep to recover from exhaustion, so on and so forth. However, despitepossessing such intellect, many people are dumbfounded when asked about the purpose of life.While some honestly acknowledge their lack of knowledge on the matter, there are many who mayprovide an answer deeply tainted with cultural influences, without any logical effort of their own.Some may argue if it even matters to know what the purpose of life is. A rational individual wouldrecognise the glorious civilizations that human beings have built. The marvellous architecturesthroughout the globe and sophisticated machineries are a testament to what the human being iscapable of. However, the data storage and processing capability of the brain, multiple chemicalanalyses that take place in the kidney, the heart that constantly pumps throughout life and thecomplex auto focus, colouring and light adjustments of the eye are much more perplexing. A rationalperson would quickly acknowledge that the human body is even more sophisticated than anythingman has ever created. The human body is beyond the design capability of human beings. Since weattribute a purpose to every single one of our actions and creations, it is only logical to seek thepurpose in the creation of human body. More importantly, who created it? Furthermore, the earth,the solar system, the billions of stars forming a hundred million galaxies, all arranged in perfectconstellations and flowing in precise orbits are many orders of magnitude higher in complexity andmagnitude. Who created all of that?A popular idea that human beings are constantly bombarded with in contemporary times is that noone created the universe, the earth, the human beings and everything else. It is all just a result of chance. From human experience we know that the process of creation is an arduous one. Forinstance, it took hundreds of thousands man months effort to design a mobile phone. It would befutile to argue that sand (silicon), oil (for plastic), copper (wires), gold and glass, which are theelements that are used to build a phone, if bombarded in various combinations would eventuallyproduce a mobile phone some day. This is a logical impossibility because explosion is a destructiveprocess which cannot create. If an explosion cannot even produce a simple gadget, then what is thepossibility of me and you being created by chance? When we see a sleek iPad with it responsivetouch screen and flashy graphics, it immediately brings to mind how much technology and designApple has put in it. When we see an airplane, a rocket or a sky scrapper, we automatically thinkabout the person or company that manufactured it. It is only logical then, that human beings reflectwhen they see a newborn baby or gaze up to the desert night sky, and ask “Who created me and thiswonderful universe, and why?”. Such a magnificent Creator, who created everything in perfectproportion and continuously maintains it, is indeed worthy of thanks, praise, worship andobedience.
