Why are we here? (maximum of 10 points for answering this question)

If you were an existential nihilist, you would believe there is no reason for us being here. Is there anything problematic about that? Do humans have an innate need to believe there is a reason for our existence? If so, how do existential nihilists reconcile this need with their philosophical conclusion about their own existence? If life itself has no purpose, how can existential nihilism be purposeful? How does one live without purpose? (maximum of 10 points for discussion of this paragraph)
