Kohelet

A number of people who I respect are of the opinion that the last few sentences of Kohelet were tacked on at a later time. I am not sure of the proof. For me, I don't believe it, and even if true, doesn't matter. The message of Kohelet, that the world doesn't make sense unless Hashem is involved, resonates with me. I find Kohelet uplifting, while others find it depressing. To paraphrase, Go, eat your bread in happiness, and drink with a good heart your wine(enjoy Sukkot), because Hashem has accepted your service(teshuvah). what could be better than that?
