I think there are some holes in Pig’s argument.
Without a sentient being to assign a purpose, and use it for such, there would be none.
Well Pig, that is a reason!
Surprised Pig didn’t say cheese
The purpose of being alive is to not be dead.
Pig likes to keep it simple.
Pig is closer to the Truth.
From a purely biologic perspective, as organisms that reproduce sexually our purpose in life is to successfully shuffle the genetic deck and then step aside in order to allow for the succeeding generation that results to do likewise. In other words, our purpose is simply to give the wheel another turn. Anything beyond that is a bonus.
To drive our parents crazy.
Pig is fully mindful with donuts.
The answer is…42. I forgot to observe “Towel Day” yesterday.RIP Douglas Adams.
They’re the same thing
I’ll just write “Beer” ;-)
No surprise there, Pig!
I wonder what Rat’s answer would be.
Put me down for sleep, cats, and books.
At least spell it “doughnuts”. That’ll add some class to it!
There is no grand purpose; we’re just here. Make the best of it.
If we’re here to help others, what are others here for?
I always thought that life was like a race or something.
Ah, donuts, the circle of life.
Goat should join the Optimist club.
In our world, it’s to give glory to God, but “Donuts” is fine for you, Pig.
I’m with Goat on this one.
Works for me!
Pig’s answer of “donuts” rather wraps up Goat’s explanation. It’s all one connected part and we fully connect to it with every bite.
Some people would say “Reparations”.
According to George Carlin, it was because Nature needed some plastic.
Went right over Pigs head…don’t forget CHEESE!
It isn’t a donut, it’s a bagel. The EVERYTHING Bagel. And it is not benign.
Love the Lord your God, and love your neighbor as yourself.
I thought it was to postpone dying.
“To die, to sleep—
To sleep—perchance to dream. Ay, there’s the rub!
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause…"
Make it sour-cream donuts and I’ll co-sign.
If you accept the Big Bang theory, then we’re all just accidents with no pre-design or purpose. And, you’ll need to take a huge leap of suspending logic when you realize that we came from molten lava on a planet devoid of life, water, and oxygen after it was spun off of the Sun.
Complex questions usually have simple answers
I’m with Pig.
Does Pig ever get a passing grade in the myriad classes he takes ? If so he should have several PHDs by now.
Mine was easy, eat, s*it, repeat. Got an A+
I’d say “Beer”. I’m sure Rat would agree.
Goat sometimes represents the know-it-alls among us who are not fully aware of how the come across, heh.
I would have said pepperoni pizza, but donuts are good too.
I’m goin’ with Pig on this one…
“Donuts” That’s the most cogent thing you’ve ever said, Stephan…
I’m with goat. But as a witch, we do that anyway.
Only the Krispy Kremes.
And Sunday May 28th is National Hamburger Day
What exactly is Pig studying for again?
“Donuts … is there anything they can’t do?” — Homer Simpson
No purpose. Thought that was settled.
donuts is as good answer as any
He gouda, but he didn’t.
And don’t forget pie! Everyone loves pie!
Love is an emotion you feel, when another happiness is essential to your own.
Call me a naïve simpleton, but that’s all the reason I need.
Same planet, different worlds.
Pig’s paper may not be profound, but it will be the tastiest!
Coffee. Coffee and donuts…
Oh Pig, Wisconsinites are disappointed. What happened? Not writing cheese, our mutual reason for living? :)
Life doesn’t have purpose, but you can give it purpose.
