You forgot that first in the morning piss after you've slept for 11 hours after a night out on the turps LOL.
I'm a creationist;   I believe that man created God.

I can assure you that God or gods do not exist. So you can exclude the god factor from the purpose equation.
Gods are nothing more than fanciful, so-called supernatural entities created in the fertile minds of primitive men.

Since we are already alive, might as well make the most of this experience.

That's debatable.

Working at the nursing home, I've seen them just give up. One guy would not eat anything at all, and he was DNR as well as "do not hospitalize".  We simply had to let him do his thing, even though it was hard on us.

Because they got their animalistic heads together and now we even have stingrays going to underwater church to thank God for allowing them to float and kill almost nobody ever apart from that one Australian bloke that no one really talks about much anymore?  Consider

Being a subspecies of shark, stingrays can't float; they lack a swim bladder.
