Understandable. ok so let me ask you this, is there any thing in your life that drives you forward? What makes you want to get out of the bed in the morning? (or whenever, if u sleep during the day lol)

A purpose implies a plan. A plan made by an agent outside of me. I'm belive in soft determonism, but not a fatalism or hard determinism. In order for there to be a purpose there must be an agent that interacts with the world in such a way as implement it's plan. I don't see any evidence for such an agent, therefore I cannot say there is a purpose to life.

True, so let me ask it this way. Do you think that there is a purpose in life? and if so what is it? However if you believe life has no purpose what drew you to stand on those conclusions?

The question presupposes that there is a purpose. There may very well be no purpose to life.
