...this planet is punishment for something you did somewhere else?

I don't usually believe in metaphysical things like this, but sometimes it makes me wonder.
I don't believe what I believe because it's what I desire to believe. I believe what I believe because it's what logic and reason cause me to believe. All I want is to live with the truth -- nothing more, nothing less.

Why do you think "no" though?

Even though (you know) I don't like you, I'd still like to know...why do you think "no?"

No.

First, the answer is no, secondly do you think you are being punished EH? Punished by who?

I don't actually believe this. It's just hypothetical question. I'm curious to see what others may think about it.

Same question back at you EH, elaborate your hypothetical thinking. Why would you "wonder" at all, if you didn't believe in metaphysics or God, and who would be punishing anyone if that was the case?

Well, the reason I "wonder" is because life on this planet can be so screwed up a lot of the time, and I feel like I don't deserve it. But...you can pretty much chalk that up to "that's life"..."trials and tribulations" and all that. But...

Sometimes I feel like an alien...like I'm on a-whole-nother level than this place. And perhaps that's just the natural arrogance in me saying that, but this life just seems to be too petty. The whole daily grind of the endless pursuit of money to survive...spending most of your waking hours trying to earn it, and not enough time to enjoy it, then you die and can't take any of it with you. It's just stupid. We should all be naked on a beach.
