Hobbes has his priorities right.
Man, Hobbes likes his food. How about rigatoni noodles?
Chocolate ice cream.
Fitzzy, you show-off
The first two panels express my thoughts exactly.
Maybe you should try it and see (the living part)
We’re not really living, we’re a figment of some ones imagination
That was what I thought and was about Calvin’s age when I found out. even then I felt very bitter about it.Starting the1. "why isn’t this bird moving?2. Will you die Mama?3. Will I die?and all the normal rejecting and tears.May even Said out loud, What’s the point of that.Later I got what I consider “proof” of an afterlife in the form of a very realistic vision.
Would you prefer the alternative, Calvin?
So, what’s this? The religionists and the atheists all think they have to preach to us in the comments?
The point of living is procreation.
We’re all going to die, so just make the most of it
…and Spam, and pizza, and ice cream. Lots of reasons to live.
Nobody of any TRUE Chrisatian faith tries to impose anything on anybody. We TELL people about Christ (what we refer to as “witnessing”) but we totally respect another’s free will that God so graciously gave us.
The point of leaving is what you make of it. If we’re all going to die sooner or later, might as well do whatever you can to make the world less miserable.
Death. Working at a call center. Hard to say which one would be worse.
In the words of Shepard Book…“The destination doesn’t matter. How you get there is the worthier journey”…Shepard Book, Firefly ep. 1…“Serenity”
(That’s from memory after just one cup of coffee, so it might not be exactly right, but it’s close…)
If we’re all just going to die, what’s the point of arguing about life?
♫Why am I dying to live, if I’m just living yo die.♫
He should have said “tiger food”
To be a party pooper:1) Our biological purpose is to leave a successful genetic legacy that will in turn leave a successful genetic legacy.2) Our spiritual purpose is to create a personal relationship with God that will last for all eternity.ORPineapple cheesecake
This isn’t all there is. Seek it out, do some searching. you’ll be surprised.
Well said. Thank you.

Great Googly Moogly! This comments section makes me not want to talk to anybody before dinner.
“I went skydiving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Fumanchu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I’d been denying”
And he said
“Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying”
c/o Tim McGraw – Live Like You Were Dying
Back on New Year’s Eve of 1963, I was 8 years old. I remember crying silently in bed that night because the year was changing from 1962 to 1963. I was very sad because to me time was passing and nothing was ever going to be the same. My life was not changing, just time was moving along with or without me. I also had seen lots of meanness in my little world and I decided that no matter what I would be nice. As I grew older, being kind has always been my thing. I think being kind everyday, doing kind things and making people smile is one of the best feelings. It has nothing to with whether you are atheist or religious, but who you are inside. Just being a kind person and helping others along the way.
the opposite could also be said, an eternal life would also lose all meaning eventually.
Even if there is an afterlife, it doesn’t give this life on Earth any meaning. Food, sleep and sex make my time here bearable.
I agree with Calvin. I’m depressed and see very little point. Also I feel I must add that I’m annoyed by people who think an afterlife gives them a free pass to treat this world poorly. Whatever you believe, leave this Earth in the same, or better condition than you found it.
Some people wish to live to be 100. Some people wish to live forever.
They are idiots.
Who wants to live forever in this screwed up world?
“Happily ever after” exists in fairy tales only.
You need to be educated on how to talk to believers and name calling isn’t on the roster of how to handle it. Don’t be mean unless you want mean in return. Just either make the correction and say nothing or just delete that part and the rest is okay. From one Atheist to another. Be sure to capitalize it!
It perplexes me often. My mom says to go to heaven. OK, then what?!? What’’s the point of that? You just sit and chill in Heaven forever? What’s the point of that?Reincarnation? Again what’s the point?And so on and so on…
You know, Watterson’s purpose was not to create duh-raaaammmma with his strips.
