I'd say there was one; survive long enough to reproduce.

Ha ha... I also thought there was only one, but I went the other way:

I thought that reproduction wasn't so much a goal, but a tool used by life/species to achieve the goal of survival!

No purpose. No goal. Just the mindless propensity of chemicals to obey the one true god of the Universe – Physics.

I don't really see a "goal" to life any more than I see a "purpose."

And even if one did exist, I wouldn't give 2 shits about following it... since I'm perfectly capable of thinking up a better one anyway.
I imagine 7 better goals before breakfast!
