Seems as though this conversation has gone to the wossnames...
What I'd like to know is not as much why we are here, as where we were before we came here.
(Perhaps we were all pigeons? Or possibly red herrings.)

I've looked around very carefully.

Zathras is here. You are not here. If you where here Zathras would see you. Zathras does not see you. You must be there.

I reckon we came from a far off planet that had to do a Superman thing and send a couple of kids off to Earth. Once there we completely forgot who we really were and proceeded to wreck the place. We don't fit in here: isn't that obvious? Therefore we mustn't have evolved here. *We* might the the aliens...

Ah, this ties in well with the recent Oxford University research that shows pigeons are no longer using their inbuilt navigation systems, but are actually following the main roads, even to the extent of going around roundabouts.

see:

It's causing hell amongst the homing Pigeon breeders, 'cos their pigeons are no longer doing as the crow does, but are being diverted by the M1 traffic cones. It is putting miles on their journeys and they keep losing races. The M6 toll road around Birmingham is proving expensive, especially at beak hours. And the GPS system that Oxford Uni has tied to their legs doesn't seem to help much either. GPS? Complete waste of the air miles system.

I reckon having a GPS system tied to your leg would be a handicap. No wonder they're having trouble smiley - biggrin

And we are here to create God. We've done that, like, ages ago yah so now we just get on with it. Living, that is.

I think I go lie down now.

Because all the buses to other, more interesting places, have already left and noone told us about the timetable change. On top of that there hasn't been a train for weeks and my knees hurt!
