Philosophy Humor

A horse walks into a bar. The bartender asks the horse if it’s an alcoholic considering all the bars it frequents, to which the horse replies “I don’t think I am”. POOF! The horse disappears.

This is the point in time when the philosophy students in the classroom begin to giggle as they are familiar with the philosophical proposition of cogito ergo sum “I think therefore I am”.

But to explain that concept beforehand would be putting the Descartes before the horse.

Galileo: “The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.”

The Catholic Church:

Animals live from day to day doing what their instincts tell them to do, enjoying whatever pleasures they can, giving no thought to the future, totally unaware of the pain, suffering and death that await them. But man is acutely aware of the potential suffering he faces and of the inevitability of death, except to the extent that he can distract or deceive himself. Moreover, this endless game of birth, growth, reproduction, suffering and death goes on and on, and as is true for all life on earth, the game is totally meaningless. It’s not really going anywhere, and there are no real winners. In the long run you’re dead. Life is absurd. It’s a cruel joke of nature, a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Man is the only creature that can appreciate the joke and realize that he has been thrown into a situation that is absurd, without meaning or purpose. This is the human predicament.
