Rationalizing life. Does it make life worth living or not?

Debate Information

Right now, human knowledge through the medium of Science has come quite far to realize the objectivity and rationalization of our life. 
For example, the fact that we're no more important than your average amoeba and saying so is human bias, the fact that our main purpose in this life is to live, reproduce, and die, and etc.-
Reducing and making the core premises of our life into bite-sized simple things that are purely objective.
Religious people say we have a purpose, given by the ultimate creator of this world, therefore, life is God's grace and we should live in and with it.
Although this thought may be overwhelming, Science is no stranger to uncomfortable questions, and it is only that, which is able to uncover the darkest questions man has to offer.

My personal thought is, yes, life is still worth living as it doesn't change the things I subjectively like, love, dislike, or hate.
Although it may change the way I view things, rationalizing life is simply more knowledge.  :)

    Here's my take on it...Life's worth is subjective. Life (capitalized) has no intrinsic value, but we as living organisms generate value and have no choice in the matter, it's a biological imperative... We ascribe value (positive or negative) subjectively (and more often than not unconsciously), to everything we're made to be aware of, including our own life...

    I think rationalization (as a process), can both add value or devalue life. What are philosophies but different rationalizations of life? Take fatalism for example, it can be said to be a devaluing rationalization of one's life... There are many possible rationalizations of Life, some will value life, others will devalue it... 

    So, I'd say you're not wrong... ;)

    I agree with you 100000%.
