Meaning was created by man, thus the meaning of life is whatever man interprets it as.

But what is life?

And the Voice of the Maker shook the Fade
Saying: In My image I have wrought
My firstborn. You have been given dominion
Over all that exists. By your will
All things are done.
Yet you do nothing.
The realm I have given you
Is formless, ever-changing.

And He knew he had wrought amiss.
So the Maker turned from his firstborn
And took from the Fade
A measure of its living flesh
And placed it apart from the Spirits, and spoke to it, saying:
Here, I decree
Opposition in all things:
For earth, sky
For winter, summer
For darkness, Light.
By My Will alone is Balance sundered
And the world given new life.

And no longer was it formless, ever-changing,
But held fast, immutable,
With Words for heaven and for earth, sea and sky.
At last did the Maker
From the living world
Make men. Immutable, as the substance of the earth,
With souls made of dream and idea, hope and fear,
Endless possibilities.

Life is inherently meaningless. The only thing life guarantees is an untimely death.

Pretty deep to take that into consideration and ponder it as a whole. It doesn't quite answer the question, but it does make you wonder. Nice job. :)

As for me, I'm not a biblical kind of person. Admittedly, the very first thing that came to mind was...42.

Wrong, meaning was created by man, to say that life is meaningless would be false.

Anyway to live is to will.

Life is a composed material sandbox where you simply shape your future. You can fuck it up, and end up causing the death of humans, or anything else on the world. Humans had the choice to ruin the world, of course they just got right up and were too much of lazy bums to throw trash away. It is pretty simple, but why would criminals kill someone, you may ask. They only kill for a certain adrenaline pumping or they have there own personal reasons.

Riddle me this, what is the cleverest way to keep a slave?

"Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
"-Poe

The belief in nothing is still a belief in something. I ma saying that is impossible for life not to have meaning.

My point is, there is no objective meaning or purpose for existence. Humanity as a whole has no specific goals except for the continuation of itself, that's the nature of life.

Many are those who wander in sin,
Despairing that they are lost forever,
But the one who repents, who has faith
Unshaken by the darkness of the world,
And boasts not, nor gloats
Over the misfortunes of the weak, but takes delight
In the Maker's law and creations, she shall know
The peace of the Maker's benediction.
The Light shall lead her safely
Through the paths of this world, and into the next.
For she who trusts in the Maker, fire is her water.
As the moth sees light and goes toward flame,
She should see fire and go towards Light.
The Veil holds no uncertainty for her,
And she will know no fear of death, for the Maker
Shall be her beacon and her shield, her foundation and her sword.

There is no objective MEANING for life through man's eyes. We are too confined by by such words as meaning, purpose, reason and such. Also the nature of man is to discharge one's power, with the self preservation and continuation a close second.

This is a question in which has been a deep thought thunk by man since the beginning of time. I prefer not to contemplate it because I know in this plain of existence I will never have an answer. There may be people who believe they know, but in reality there guess is as good as mine. It's better to sit back and enjoy the beauty that you can find in life.

There is no 'meaning of life'.

We're just here, thats about it. Doesn't matter how you live your life because ultimately when you die that's it really.

On a biological level, it's to procreate to ensure the continuation of your genes. However, it's not a bad idea to enjoy yourself throughout the whole journey.
