Just a thought:

When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade; not shoot up a bunch of people and destroy any & all hope of the rest of your life!!!

Whatever the average human lifespan, 100 years or more, it is a modicum of eternity. Hence, despite the belief and pride that mankind is created in the image of God, human beings are no different from other living things such as bacteria that come and go in this world, seemingly without any purpose. Most of us are busy toiling for the food of survival that we have no time for this food for thought:

Is there any purpose for us mortals to come to this world? In other words, is there any meaning in life? Just to toil and rest for a modicum of eternity on this earth until we toil no more and rest forever and ever?

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Yup! We have no more "right" to life than pond scum! :redface:

'
If one compares the size of the observable universe with the size of a human being, the difference is about 30-odd orders of magnitude.

If one studies mathematics deeply, one is forced to the conclusion that there is a profoundly subtle and spiritual foundation to all existence.

Philosophy vibrates between these two extreme outlooks, and has never been able to co-ordinate these two truths into a coherent philosophical system.
