Does the Universe Have a Purpose?
Neil deGrasse Tyson responds to the thought provoking question of "Does the Universe Have a Purpose?" He was asked this by the Templeton Foundation. Minute Physics provides the visuals.
I like his answer. I think it was the wrong question to ask him. A better question is, "Do humans have a purpose?" It would be rather a big let down if we just stank up the planet for a few million years and then vanished. Well, even if that's all there is to it, onwards to Mars! We've got a whole universe to exploit.
