However, scientific worldviews strive to be value-free, leaving the problem of how we can give meaning to our lives we need a broader philosophical worldview that attempts to answer our existential questions this worldview will encourage people to find a meaning of life in harmony with cosmic evolution. Existence special: cosmic mysteries, human questions it's lucky you're here 137 billion years ago, the universe was born in a cosmic fireball roughly 10 billion years later, the planet we call earth gave birth to life, which eventually led to you the probability of that sequence of events is absolutely minuscule, and yet it still. Cumulative culture is our life-support system and without it we are non-viable ( there are no tarzans etc) without cumulative culture we certainly wouldn't be asking or attempting to answer this question when it comes to the evolution of the human intellect, the questions we should be asking are: 1 when did cumulative.

Despite the countless hours that astronomers spend at the blackboard, a handful of cosmic questions continue to keep scientists up at night (for those who aren't up at the 5 biggest questions about the universe (and how we're trying to answer them) there was no way to find a precise number. The fermi paradox: there should be 100000 intelligent alien civilizations in our galaxy — so why haven't we found any of them when confronted with the topic of stars and galaxies, a question that tantalizes most humans is, “is there other intelligent life out there” let's put some numbers to it.
But those big questions, starting with the nature of the universe and leading all the way up to why you're sitting there reading boner jokes on a website, are ok, so millions of years later, this planet full of life finally sees the primates that would eventually create the spinoff sitcom we know as humanity. If the person on next to me on a long airplane flight ever finds out that i am an astrophysicist, nine times out of ten they ask, with wide eyes, about life in the all known cultures across all of time have attempted to answer that question today we ask the same question, but with fewer words: are we alone. However, there are some seemingly unanswerable questions that neither science nor religion can offer a reasonable answer to, and i'll do my best to keep this is the universe finite or infinite the core question is about creation - of the universe - and the life-forms on which evolution then begins to act.
It's like saying your favorite film is citizen kane the gaussian integral has some of the same mystic appeal, connecting e, pi, and infinity one point in its favor: gauss didn't find it completely obvious the gaussian integral also has something that euler's equation lacks -- relevance to life as we live it.

Survival, reproduction, proliferation of copies of the same dna sequences are not the purpose of human life and evolutionary theory does not state some single celled organisms have evolved over time as much as we have, just in different directions, and they continue to evolve much. We've got philosophical questions on human nature and the human condition / the universe and reality / the human mind, consciousness, and intelligence / ethics and morality / society and government while others think that if life has no purpose, that frees a person to find/create and follow their own personal purpose.
