Nah fam. Reproducing is the only logical purpose to life. What else is there? What other purpose is there? Helping other people? Well, why would you help other people? So they can survive, right? And ultimately so that their children survive. If people surviving is what you value then you should value reproduction as well, because without reproduction there won't be any more people.
Anyway. It's the biological imperative we all have that's telling us to procreate. It's the most important thing to each of us. I would argue that even staying alive is not as important, because parents of many species often die for their children. In the case of humans most parents would probably be prepared to die for their kids too. Before any of us have children, then yes our own lives are probably the most important thing to us - because we want to make sure we're around long enough to have children.
Procreation is the ultimate purpose of life. Sorry fam. It is. You could also call it "propagation", or "proliferation". That's what every organism on this planet does, as much as it can - it proliferates itself. It will do so as much it can, until it is stopped by another force - but even then it will do everything in its power to keep propagating. It will keep consuming resources, and keep trying to build power for itself, and keep propagating itself as much as it can.
Nietzsche talks about the "will to power", which I guess sort of describes what I'm talking about. But in my view we don't just seek power for the sake of power - we seek power so that we have a greater chance at reproducing, and also so that our children will have a greater chance of survival. Of course there are some people who seek power but vow that they do not want children, and will never have children, but those people are a complete anomaly. They are rare. They are deviations from the norm. In humans, as in all other animals, power is sought because power improves one's reproductive chances, and the chances of survival of one's offspring.
You could say "we're rational humans! We don't have to procreate as much as possible! What a pointless endeavour! What's the point in procreating!"
You already know the point of procreating - we all do. All of us feel a drive to procreate. We are all competing to procreate, just like every other animal. Why do you think humans are so driven to copulate? Why do humans protect their young so much? Because the desire to reproduce is ingrained so deeply within us - of course, a species that doesn't have a desire to procreate will die out.
The people who say "what is the point of procreating" have no argument. The point is to produce more of you, and ultimately conquer the planet - that's what all other organisms are trying to do. So that they can enjoy the highest quality of life.
People who say "what's the point in procreating" are defeatist - they have given up. They have decided to abandon their pursuit of procreation, probably because they feel there are no opportunities for them. That's sad. They should try harder - but then again, I guess we can't all procreate. Only the alpha males will be desirable by females, and for good reason. Females only have so many eggs, and so much energy that they can invest in birthing and raising children. They don't want to waste those resources on Joe Schmoe.
I guess if you are such a Joe Schmoe then yeah, you're going to have to give yourself a different purpose in life besides procreation, because your chances of doing that are slim. Well, knock yourself out. Play video games or something. I don't really give a fuck.
