Talk:Meaning of life

Should Hitchhiker's guide really be mentioned here? It's kind of strange sweeping over all of mankind's cultural output, and then specifically mentioning this one piece of pop culture.

Please don't make this article any longer. It's perfect as it is. Update 24/02/09: I'm sorry, my name is Matt. I read this article and thought it was perfect, it seems to sum up exactly what is needed for a simple explanation. As for the last paragraph, this is supposed to be simple. I think 'biological' is a simple way of describing that viewpoint. The first paragraph is also necessary as it provides some background and a context. Disclaimer: I have no idea about editing articles or the appropriate protocol for discussing them, so I apologise for any infraction.

Nothing's perfect. And sign your name ferchrissake --118.208.46.7 (talk) 07:41, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

The last paragraph should be removed, as it is complete nonsense from a biological standpoint. The theory of evolution is a theory about how life evolved, it has nothing do to with the meaning of life. This is a bit like saying that according to the theory of gravity the meaning of life is to fall down.

I think the first paragraph should be removed. It does not address the meaning of life, it addresses how people attempt to address the meaning of life. 209.174.188.73 (talk) 10:37, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

The English in this article is a bit complex... it should be changed --154.5.116.225 (talk) 18:16, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

This is article should be kept. Moved the sentences regarding "42" and mentioning Douglas Adams, which are topical, but should be placed upwards in the text. This would make the ending more neutral and consistent with the rest of the article. Apurvasukant (talk) 22:14, 26 September 2009 (UTC) Apurva
