And how are nihilist sadistic? Maybe you dont know the meaning of the word sadistic. Ted Bundy is someone I would label as sadistic. Im surely not out to hurt anyone.
Morals are natural law, bro.Your not born with morals.
Not for them to decide. Rape can not possibly be moral.What some cultures/countries find immoral other may not.

So has this thread turned into a debate on moral relativism yet? Seems like every philosophical discussion eventually ends up there.
I think Nihilism is basically just pessimistic existentialism. Whoever came up with the concept deserves the same sort of praise as the guy who came up with the "pet rock" toys.
I think the conclusion nihilists draw are just absolutely nuts, but the premises are decent an i subscribe at least partly to them.
Meaning and purpose of life, The only objective purpose is to reproduce to keep live going. Everything else is meaning we try to attribute to life, either through religion or philosophy, therefor there is no real objective purpose or meaning of live.
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.
Imagine if we only could perceive things in a 2-dimensional way, or maybe even a 4-dimensional way, would completely change reality itself.
It's possible other beings could see things this way so their reality is one entirely different from ours. Their brains could process information in a completely different way, leading to a difference in perception and therefore reality.
Just fun to think about
^kind of like how colors are perceived by the brain. What if my green isn't your green?

Nihilism? There's nothing to it.
"The idea that the market will solve such things as environmental concerns, as our racial divides, as our class distinctions, our problems with educating and incorporating one generation of workers into the economy after the other when that economy is changing; the idea that the market is going to heed all of the human concerns and still maximise profit is juvenile. . . Are we all in this together or are we all not?" - David Simon, creator of The Wire
