    I don't question it, just trying to find out what it is :-).

    I'm still in the process of discovering my true purpose on earth, but when I do, i won't question it. I'll just try to fulfill it.

    Sometimes I do...but then sometimes I think I'm hear for a special purpose, just don't know what it is yet.

    I had nothing to do with my arrival but I'm here and just get on with it and try to enjoy the now.  And soon enough I'll be gone so I would like to think my life was one which contributed to humanity.

    Shine while you're here.  The clock is ticking down not up.  Then it's over.  I don't believe in religions and I'm more than certain that the universe is working just fine.  So, if there is anything else going on it will happen in spite of me.  After all, I didn't choose to come to this barbaric planet in the first place.  I just do my best to make the most of the life I've been given.

    Nah. I used to... but I realised that purpose is something you will never be told.. maybe shown.. if you keep your eyes open and are that self aware..
    However, I'm having more fun now than I used to just because its more fun for me to create my own purpose.. by living.. loving.. laughing.. and doing.

    Find your own purpose in life and - as long as it doesn't impinge on the wellbeing of others - good luck to you.

    If you find making such a choice difficult try following Ashantina's methodology.

    Absolutely.  I see part of my purpose as questioning my purpose.

    Not anymore, I am now secure with the unkown and my place in things.  I figure if I can do more good than harm then my time here was worth it.

    No, because I know that I am here to do something valuable. The size of my input does not matter but the fact that I made an effort definitely does.

    I questioned it long back and realized there is none. We keep on making purposes for ourselves, fulfill them and then make a new one, just like Sisyphus rolled the rock up to the peak and did it repeatedly. Hence don't question the ends but the means. In a journey the destination is not the only important part, journey too is.

    So don't question the purpose instead question intentions, actions and consequences.

    Yes I do and I know the "answer" too. It is to give useless answers in the Answers section of Hubpages!

    Some of these answers are quite amusing. Reminds me of this:

    Nope.  I know that my reason for being here is to grow and work to perfect my thoughts and actions, so that one day I'll be allowed to join God in the spiritual realm.

    Of course I do not. I was brought on this Earth by my mother, and I plan to shape it into a peace-filled haven, or at least do my part in helping it. I have so far done very well in life, and I plan to have much more accomplishments as I grow older. Good day!

    No, but to make my life worth-while I want to give back (via my art as a vehicle) to people who deserve it...So to say have created my own purpose.

    This is a question we all ask ourselves at some point, and no one can pretend knowing it all. If you don't know where you are going, at least remember where you come from.

    I think for there to be a purpose there would have to be a plan or design and that is something that cannot be proven. In the absence of knowing there is only faith and I don't know what I believe. I don't think my mind is capable, at present, of grasping the abstractions of the concept of purpose.

    I think everyone does...  humans always ask those kind of questions.

    No, God has put me on this earth for a reason. I am here to serve!
