I actually use this website to keep track of what books I have already read but this article is a special feature and well worth a browse..
“”In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in His cosmic loneliness.
God said, “Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see
what We have done.” And God created every living creature that now
moveth, and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close
to mud as man sat up, looked around, and spoke. Man blinked. “What is
the purpose of all this?” he asked politely.
“Everything must have a purpose?” asked God.
“Certainly,” said man.
“Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this,” said God.
And He went away.””
Kurt Vonnegut, Cat’s Cradle
