    I'd agree with you, but it just wouldn't matter.

    It doesnt have to be depressing, it only is if you make it be.

    its pretty easy to make arguments to disprove this philosophy. everything serves a purpose in the ecosystem, whether its positive or negative. this is from a scientific perspective, not necessarily a religious one.

    You argue that life has no basic meaning implies that you are an essentialist, and of course, going down a road of discourse.

    I wish we could get into this, but I fear we'd be approaching violating the no-religion rule! I've been sitting here for about 30 minutes now responding to this, deleting my response, re-writing my response, and so on...but I figured neither of us are going to convince us that we're right, and I also was talking about religion way too much. So I'll spare it.

    I find PLENTY of meaning in life, and I have a strong definition of what "the meaning of life" means. I'm also very happy/proud/content that I find this meaning from where I find it.

    That's that.

    I do get why you feel that way coming from the realm of belief you come from, and I respect that. I just disagree, and actually find it preposterous

    Plus, Den has been doing a good job explaining things probably more articulately and concisely than I can.
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    i was quoting angry norwegian. alot of ppl have the philosophy "whats the point of living if we're going to die anyway". my response was a counter to that mentality.

    I mean Den's just appealing to analytic philosophy that has been stepping around huge existential issues for centuries.

    Give me that continental ****, fool. Sartre's ontology makes secular morality look weak, son. If we're Godless creatures abandoned in this gigantic void of meaningless, it doesn't make sense to talk about systems of morality like they're carved in stone. And I'd argue-- even if there is a God, how does morality follow from that either? Are things good because God prefers them or does God prefer them because they're good? That's some basic Euthyphro dilemma ****, my *****.

    i think sometimes people waste their time trying to figure out "why" we're here or "why" we exist. just accept the fact we are here, we're only here for a portion of time compared to the Earth's history as a whole, and all we can do is make the best of it. if you're spending your time asking for the reason for our existence, you will not find one. what do people want to hear? "your here to save the world", "you are here to do great things"?? the only person who can CREATE a reason for being on this planet is YOU

    Absolutely. Unless your some sort of Taoist who thinks that you can't follow or pursue meaning, you can only come to know it through reflection or something like that. But I'm with you here.

    Those people are sadistic. My view on nihilist, won't even view upon them.

    They claim nothing. Woah, they made a claim. There it goes again, that damn something. Hey, 1+1=2, *****. AKNOW!

    How does nothing, wait, those letter things. BUNK!

    Dude, this is fun, to understand why we are here. What if you found out how to live forever, knowing why?

    if you're spending your time asking for the reason for our existence, you will not find one.
    EXPLETIVE! Reason is all about in this universe. Reason to be here, to post on PSD! Thats enough for this poster.

    what do people want to hear? "your here to save the world", "you are here to do great things"?? the only person who can CREATE a reason for being on this planet is YOU
    Reason is a natural construct of the universe. You don't have the ability to "create" reason, it certainly is.

    The idea of being safe at night. How mighty to put food on the table for everyone! The moral man is king.
