I think there is a lot of meaning to life, the people who say there is no meaning have not found it. As Tina said, the media portrays life in a very materialistic, self-centered, shallow way, focusing on outward appearance more than inner strength/beauty. But, the meaning of living in the world is pretty obvious...'the bottom line', sex sells, good-looking things, materialistic things, although none of these things bring true fulfillment or happiness. The true meaning could be found by recognizing those traps that the media puts out, and not getting caught up in such wastes of time, do the total opposite. Not keeping up with the Jones's...etc.
Finding beauty in nature, learn the meaning of life by watching animals, their natural instincts are a wonder to behold. The meaning of life.....to me is, being a happy, good person despite the negativity around me....be good to people--all people.
