Why are we here on Earth ?

Updated on March 13, 2013

Meaning of life

Another HubPage Question

This is becoming habit forming as well as a great way to get content. I always go to the questions Hubbers ask. Once in awhile I discover a question that makes an excellent topic. This question was asked by abhishek.genius. The question was "Why are we here on Earth? What am I supposed to do here? Here is the link.

I have a few ideas on this topic. Let's start with God.

If there is a God, then Earth is a training camp. Whatever your faith, you must follow the rules to move to a higher place.Earth is that camp. You are given a set of rules to follow. Follow them and you get to meet your God. Don't follow them, and you get a ticket to The Bad Place (Hell). There are special people that can help guide you to Heaven. However, there are also evil people looking to recruit you for the other side. So, if you view your time on Earth as a test, I wish you the best of luck.

Suggestion #2 Correction Facility

The universe is a big place. Could be thousands of planets, some with life forms. Earth could be the Universe's prison. Out in space if a crime is committed the guilty need a place to go, and are transported here. That could explain the UFO sightings. They are either dropping off new residents or releasing those who have served their time.

I'm sure there are those of us that don't believe in aliens. I challenge you to look around and deny that some people you know don't look strange. I'm talking outta space strange. Maybe that is why Earthlings speak so many different languages. We all have segregated like gangs in the Earth prisons. Just something to ponder over.

Suggestion #3 Entertainment

Maybe we are nothing more the entertainment for someone or something more powerful the us. Maybe Earth is someone's doll house and we are just toys.Kinda makes you fear getting undressed knowing someone is watching. Of course who or whatever is watching us must be laughing hysterically. Most likely enjoying the fact that we fight among ourselves and destroy where we live.

Maybe we are pawns in some highly advanced game of chess. We have Kings and Bishops on Earth. Just like the chess pieces. I'm assuming that if that is the case, Earth will fade away once someone yells checkmate!

Choose any game you know of and I'm sure it will apply to this suggestion.

Suggestion #4 Experimentation

Again this deals with higher beings then ourselves. Earth could be a giant test tube or petri dish. Exactly what the experiment is about is anyone's guess. Whatever it involves I hope it is for something good as opposed to something bad. Who knows, maybe we will save the Universe someday.

What do You Think?

I'm sure that if you think about it you can come up with your own opinions of why we are on Earth. Please feel free to list then in the comments section. Or go to the question link and give abhishek.genius the answer.

      It's good to hear other writers' opinions on here too. I wrote an article called ' The Meaning of Life is...' It's on HubPages if you'd like to read it.
