    Morals exist but they are no natural laws, they emerged out of necessity, social creatures need something that governs social interaction and societies need a moral base to stand upon (agreeable behavior of individuals in a group context). But Morals change depending on the times and societies. It's also a learned trait no one is born with morals.

    Reality doesn't exist. Our perception distorts "reality", but since we have only our perception we have to assume that this is reality.
    Yea I dont necessarily agree with everything, but I think your post is spot on. Some may think theyve found a meaning, but imo on a grand scale its meaningless.

    To who?

    It's a totally false dichotomy to say that "meaning" (as if it were an object unto itself) is either something objectively "out there", external but perhaps accessible to humanity, or completely nonexistent.

    Why, if meaning exists to us "only in our minds" should it be considered any less "real" in terms of how we experience "meaningfulness"? EVERYTHING we understand, believe, experience, feel, relate to -- it all happens through mental processes.

    A lot of this is based on that false dichotomy, and much is also based on the false premise that if there isn't one big, grand unifying answer to the question, "What does this all mean?", that the fractional, individualized, less grandiose meanings we all feel and experience in daily life are somehow diminished to unimportance. What necessitates that?

    And besides, everyone knows that the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42.

    I meant to put this in my post, but obviously anything causing harm to others should be considered immoral.
    For you to utter the words of nothing, to be so misconstrued in a universe of substance. For you to speak is harmful to the logical.

    Fun, helping others, sex, love, perfection, friendship, exercise, 'straight dopeness,' WEED, weather patterns. Jesus Christ.

    Dude, no. This is wrong. When will a lie ever be moral? When will it ever be moral to be dumb?

    Are perception is real.

    Still the same reality we share.

    You are a German, and you are hiding a family of Jews in your attic. A group of Nazis comes to your door, and asks "Are you hiding any Jews here?"

    What do you say?

    A joke, Kant is.

    Nope. Make color products for concrete. We make a lot of different things. Acid stains, water stains, chemical stains and just straight color to add to cement. If youve seen bush stadium, we made the color for it. We almost got to make the color for new cowboys stadium, but our prices were to high. Most of our color is made from iron oxides except our blue, which is made feom titanium.

    I don't take acid.

    Get this, PSD having been, well here, makes it so nothing can never ever ever occur. Ever. No matter what something had been. My view on nihilist is they are sadistic, and go to hell. They are lies, those who ponder nothing MUST KNOW IT CAN'T POSSIBLY BE!
