What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

I Agree!

One of these days I will be able to get rid of the double posting of comments.

The only good thing I can say about cell phones is that we are finally seeing how poorly trained, paranoid, racist our police forces really are.

They ALL ought to remove "To Protect and to Serve" from their cars, and replace it with "Just Covering My Ass." 

Or disarm most of them.

Bertold, your comment sent me on a hunt. This is what I found:

"Benjamin Franklin experimenting with electricity in a lightning storm is an iconic image. But Franklin was not alone. Many of the nation's founding fathers were citizen scientists. Like Franklin, Thomas JeffersonJohn AdamsJames Madison, and George Washington were all avid students of the natural and physical world."

We can proudly promote placing mottos on our currency in support of natural, physical and the scientific world.
