Even if we don't deserve it we are here and I intend to be here as long as I can.

Humanity has every right to exist, we are beautifully complex creatures that earn our place in  a world that does everything possible to destroy us. No one can deny our right to BE and to find our true destiny no matter how long it takes our how far we have to go.

Sorry..I mis-read that.

I thought you were asking me if I deserved to live. Still..I'd say No.

Yes I deserve to exist and deserve to live as long as any attempts to take either fail. If they succeed well then I guess I didn't deserve to exist or live anymore.

Every form of life, including humans, deserve their existence - simply because they are alive. They shouldn't have to earn it, beg for it, understand it or feel guilty about having it. Our existence should be cherished while we have it.

Everyone deserves it, but the question is, do you live like you do deserve it?

This brings to mind a conversation I had with a friend the other day about the 'sanctity of life,' by which she meant that every life is a precious gift, etc. etc.

My stance? No, it's not. Life is cheap. You can create a new life in five minutes (or less!) + however long the gestation period is. Gestation is not some mystical, magical thing that bestows some worth on the life. Life is everywhere on this planet for the most part. There's nothing special about it.

Embrace the impossible.

Depends on what you feel one must do in order to "deserve" it. 99.99% of the populace simply exists, going to work, paying taxes, going home, do some stuff, go to bed and do it all over again for the next 80 years of ones life. Does that count?

If they can find enjoyment from something in their life, if they can experience something they love, find people to do things with, then yes, it counts. It's not the ordinary things that define what you do. It's like a movie, do they show the boring parts? No, they show dinosaurs breaking loose and eating people. The mundane aspects may outweigh everything else, but it's those special parts of it that make it all worth while.

I see....
Sounds like we (collectively speaking) are in competition with everyone to see who can do the most amazing stuff.

You keep thinking of people as a collective, the collective 'we', what do 'we' find enjoyable, why do 'we' deserve to exist. Nah, I don't like all that kind of thinking, you are you and the group is just what you decide to be a part of. If it makes you happy, do it. It's like myself and cosplaying, I love it to death and I'm lucky enough to find like minded people, 'we' make it fun, but if it was just me? I'd probably still do it..
