Him (a chemist): Well, all chemists secretly want to be physicists. And all physicists secretly want to be astronomers. And all astronomers secretly want to be philosophers. I don't know what philosophers secretly want to be.

Me (a chemist turned physicist): God.

Since many of the philosophers seem to think that God is dead, that would mean that they want to be dead.
