What is the purpose of life?

Secularists-Humanists-Atheists generally claim that life has no real purpose, that they were born as a product of sexual intercourse between their parents, and that the matter begins and ends there. Indeed, those who only believe in the material world only believe in sensory data. They say that this universe and everything in it came by itself. All its order is simply due to blind coincidence. They say that man is simply just like any animal or plant and that he will exist for a short period and then end like any other animal or plant. However, no sane individual would simply accept such a simplistic explanation for the origin of man. As humans are clearly distinct from any creature in the animal kingdom, the inquiring mind should rationally ask: what is the purpose of life and why do we exist?

If the purpose of life is to become wealthy, there would be no purpose after becoming wealthy. The fact is that when people approach their purpose here in this life from the aspect of only gaining wealth, after collecting the money they have dreamed of their lives loose purpose and then they live in restless tension suffering from a feeling of worthlessness. How could wealth then be considered as the aim of life? Could the acquisition of wealth guarantee happiness? Of course not. When we hear of millionaires or members of their families committing suicide, how could we consider the purpose of life would be to gain great wealth?
