...from James R's "Sciforums site rules" : "H10. Attack the argument, not the person. Avoid phrases such as ‘Only an idiot would say that’, which is equivalent to the personal insult ‘You are an idiot’. If you disagree with a position, explain why clearly and politely, and don’t forget to provide suitable evidence in support of your own position." - from : http://www.sciforums.com/threads/sciforums-site-rules.142880/ Any "suitable evidence", paddoboy? Regardless, when it comes to the question : What is the purpose of life? The only possible True, Honest, Considered and Sincere Scientific answer is : It is not known! A minor addendum might be that it may never be known! Indeed, it just may be that it cannot ever and will not ever be known!
