Poeple ask so many questions these days but i cant think of any question more important than why we think we are here, This is no Trick question, we all have our different reasons in which we live for, things that give our lives definition and meaning.

I dont ask this question to mock or to slander, i ask it to learn.

So if you think you can answer these five questions from your heart and not out of any sense of malice or cocky attitude please give it a go, those who answer truthfully might even give themselves a better understanding of things.

I give you my five answers from my heart to start things off:

Why am i here?

1. I dont know but i am.

2. i think, to make a difference.

3. To love back those who love me.

4. To stand up for the things i belive in.

5. Before i eventually die, to Inspire, to create and to understand.

1. I am angry at what TPTB are doing to this World.

2. I am learning that we are not as strong as we need to be and not as weak as they would have us believe.

3. I am preparing my heart, mind and soul for whatever may come.

4. I am learning from many things to learn!

5. I am glad to know that I am not the only one feeling and thinking this way.

6...A Freebie. Sometimes, I laugh so hard...I poop a little. lol

And I guess the best part is that I can steer others here so that they also know they are not alone in their thinking.

To an outsider looking in, it might be apparent that the answer to the question would be the following:
1. I have a need to be chastised for any of my beliefs.
2. I am a government agent that needs to be 'outed'.
3. I am a masochistic racist.
4. I am a nut.
5. I am ignorant and uninformed.

My actual reasons: I want to learn and grow as a person become more well-rounded.

I am here because:

I have valid and reasoned opinions and information to offer the world.

I have a good intellect and am capable of reaching solutions to problems that may not have occurred to any other.

I have a sense of play and interest in enquiry.

I am willing and interested in assisting other people (on which I also am dependent) to achieve excellence and happiness in their lifes' walk.

My contribution is pivotal in the history and destiny of the human race.

We all are all these things!

Just to make things interesting, perhaps, you might question who is that "I"! I know I'm definitely not the person I thought I was.

1. I'm here for evolutional tranformation.

2. The journey is as hard as we make it.

3. There is no journey.

Good thread, this should be easy.

1.) To prepare myself for upcoming events.

2.) Meet other people who may share my opinions.

3.) Learn more about the world and the people who reside in it.

4.) It gives me an excuse to ignore people in the real world.

5.) Its cheaper than going to the cinema, plus i can go to the toilet without disturbing anyone.

i'm not clear if you mean in the philosophical sense why are we here, or are you meaning why are we here on ATS. and looking at the posts it seems replies are from both sides of the fence.

TedHodgson would you mind clarifying? i apologize but i'm honestly confused. TY

Yea thats a good point, if its about life rather than ATS then these are my reasons.(for life).

1.) To learn.

2.) To love.

3.) To hate.

4.) To be tolerant.

5.) To live.

There we go, if it is infact about ATS, then my 5 are displayed on the first page.

1. 9/11.

2. 9/11 official conspiracy theory.

3. 9/11 cover-up.

4. The lies told by the government and the whitewash of a one-dimensional political spectrum (left-right), propped up by special interests (often foreign).

5. Entertainment.

If it wasn't for 9/11 and the subsequent official story, I probably wouldn't be here at all. The handling of the 9/11 cover-up is what opened my eyes to the realities that this country and the world as a whole faces. Sure, I didn't really trust the government before 9/11, though I believed the lies and deceit to be more or less isolated cases, with no real organization or intention behind it. Then, observing the highly organized handling of the cover-up, I started to awaken to our sad, dire reality.

Of course, I come to ATS for entertainment. Any information gleaned or spread, is just icing on the cake.

1 To gather information.

2 To piece together that information and provide a lager picture in a way others can understand.

3 To debate my findings specifically with those who would disagree with me.

4 To help me better understand some of the undercurrents of world events.

5 To challenge myself.

It was supposed to be in a philosopical sense however the answers are still relevant and enlightening, in all fairness i should have made myself more clear, but as i say learning was the reason for this thread
