Why was I born?
This is a very interesting question for every person. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to grow up to it. He comes only to those who have already achieved something in life, who are able to search for what is happening in meaning, to analyze the surrounding reality. Agree that in his youth this does not arise, his own purpose does not excite at all. But by 30-40 years, when certain heights are already reached and mistakes are made, a person begins to wonder why a person is born, what he should do on this earth. Different sciences answer this question differently, that's why we suggest you choose the most suitable for you from different opinions.
A glance of philosophy
Philosophers of different times, including antiquity,thought about the question of man, why I was born and what the purpose of this birth. The most popular doctrine of matter and spirit forced them to make one of two decisions. Man is born to do something for all mankind, to advance scientific and technological progress, to write beautiful pictures, music, to make other people happier by their kindness and help. This is the first opinion, it belongs to the materialists. The second, expressed by the idealists, is that a person carries a very high destiny in himself, he must "give birth" to many ideas and thoughts that will pour into the general substance of the "spiritual idea" that moves the world. It is very difficult for ordinary people to understand, that's why it's not popular.
Here everything is very simple. Man, - argue biologists - is the same kind of living beings as the rest: animals, insects, plants, etc. And the main task of an individual of any kind is to survive and ensure the survival of the whole race. Therefore, the answer to the question of man, why I was born and grew on Earth, they consider the continuation of the genus. That is, a person must leave after himself a posterity, and preferably in such quantity to ensure the profit of the population. Simply put - in a family there must be at least two children, and it is better, if there are more. From the point of view of biology, a person fulfills his destiny for the rest of his life, because it is important for people not only to give birth to a child, but also to ensure his safety until he becomes an adult and a strong individual. On the one hand, the point of view is banal, and on the other - who needs spiritual values if the world's population dies out?
View of religion
Religion refers to the birth of a person to one of thesacraments, she welcomes the birth of a legitimate marriage. But at the same time he considers the conception to be sinful. According to the priests, the baby is born with a pure soul, and the present cleansing from the sin of conception, he gets rid of at the time of his baptism. Of course, in this teaching, the spiritual component is more important, and not its bodily shell. All the suffering of the body is given to man as a test of his faith. Sociologists believe that this opinion was born to keep people in the so-called slavery to manage them. And the church itself inspires faith in a person, that his birth on Earth is pleasing to God, and the calling of man in his service to him and his commandments, that is, the rules of behavior in society. Many decades in Russia it was believed that faith enslaves a person. On the other hand, a person in many ways is powerless before natural phenomena, in front of complex life circumstances, therefore, to survive, one must believe that someone or something helps him. Everyone decides for himself, it will be God, or society, or friends and family.
In secondary schools of our country, children are given an assignmentwrite an essay, why I was born or why I was born. Composing such a plan is absolutely impossible to write deliberately at this age, because one's opinion must be based on one's life experience, and such at a young age there. Therefore, it is better to give the children versatile knowledge, and not to force to rewrite other people's opinions.
