Section 2 TA: Laura Short Assignment 4 1. Ultimate meaning seems to mean an immortal life with God (doing God’s work)A, as in you can’t have meaning unless you’re immortal (there’s an afterlife) and God needs to exist. 2. Something can exist forever without meaning, a rock is immortal yet has no meaning. This is similar to humans, if humans were immortal, but there was no God to give us purpose and meaning we would just continue to exist and aimlessly wander about until the end of time. 3. I don’t necessarily think that the purpose God has for us is the same one that people who search for the meaning of life think we have. Descartes stated that we can’t possibly perceive God or even begin to understand all his actions and choices. I think that includes his ultimate purpose for us. Also, I don’t think every human has the same cookie cutter purpose, so if one person figures their purpose out, then they can’t just apply that to everyone else, too.
