this is the biggest problem we have in this world currenlty, people caring tooo much what other people believe. let them believe in religion,philosophy or other shit and do ur own thing.
Trying to understand why we're here and how our world works is the most intriguing part of our lives imo
reddit nihilism sucks even more
> "Philosophy is a bad thing"
> proceed to a philosophical reasoning about the meaning of life
we're just energy, the elite knows about this and therefor robs our energy with consumption and consume.
In order to survive, human race simplifies down this complex world into something we can actually work with - order, values and meaning.
It's not even about that. It's just there to help you to get by and find some peace of mind when there are so many things bothering you on the outside. It doesn't have to have certain purpose or answer your questions, if you find it boring or useless, then you certainly have to go to the club instead. Not for you.
what you say is also philosophy lmao
"while in reality. there freaking isn't"
first you say philosophy is pointless, then you make many philosophical statements. this is very typical and i see it a lot. for example: "metaphysics is dumb speculation, everyone knows the world is just how science sees it". etc
sorry this triggers me, its always this pattern. say a discipline is stupid then make assertions that belong to that discipline
Combatting pervasive nihilism is the most important function of philosophy. Meaninglessness is crippling and when it incites a curse of being itself it can create grest tragedy. The fricken columbine kids used nihilism to call humanity a disease that needs to be eradicated.
There are ways in which one can find meaning in this temporal and seemingly meaningless world. I'd recommend Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning or Leo Tolstoy's philosiphical writings, they're quite eye-opening on the existence of meaning.
If you don't think meaningless and nihilism is a problem you must realize that without meaning and purpose there is no reason to do or not do anything. One might look at existence itself and curse it for its lack of meaning, and wish to eradicate it as many mass killers have. Retarded nihilists sometimes quote Nietzsche on nihilism, but the man drove himself to insanity and death by trying to combat meaninglessness and derive an objective system of values without religion. He understood the problem of nihilism and sought to see its end.
Tldr nihilism is retarded and dangerous, and philosophy combats it. Anyone who is self aware enough to think can become nihilistic, and thus philosophy is beneficial.
Thank you for that philosophical outlook on why philosophy is bad.
You don't even know philosophy
ohhhhh another edgy nihilist kid, i guess its become cool to be nihilist these days
You do notice that you just stated something philosphical right?
serching for meaning is intriguing. but find the meaning is not a necessity, SEARCHING, that's the fun part of philosphy
nothing has absolute meaning - therefore you decide what has meaning for you, and that might be viewed as beauty, tragedy or comedy
im going to study some philosophy this year
wrote to me at the end of the year, and i will tell you my conclusion about it
You just stated how you view you world, which is one and the same thing as philosophy. If you say there is nothing out there, then it wont be.
I read what you typed and I think you are on the verge of becoming homeless . Ur U UR U! 1st grade education. Don't worry my friend, we might be in a sim. It's the only explanation for us right now. GODS? Nope. Evolution? hmm, fish they have headlights on their head, very odd. Why can't I grow a headlight on my head? If we survive just another 1k years we could make a sim universe and watch it evolve in maybe a year.
Says thinking about life is pointless, then tells us his opinion on life. Come on son, THINK before you start these threads.
thats just your philosophy
Nihilism is a philosophy, good job, bro!
Meaning comes from minds, they're the ones who ascribe meaning to things.
So there can be meaning to life and reality, as long as we ascribe it ourselves.
In a way, saying that there's no meaning to anything is already trying to ascribe some meaning, because in order to believe that there's no meaning, you need to be able to evaluate this situation and accept it as true.
It's even more meaningful to you if you decide to take actions as a consequence of this worldview (such as, for example, promoting the end of all life), because not only it would derive your worldview, but it would also derive a plan of action, a motivation, an alternative state of the world to reach, aka, something that you think has more value than the current world.
If you actually believed that everything was meaningless you wouldn't even try to communicate your worldview to us, in fact you wouldn't even communicate at all, it would be meaningless to you, in fact you would probably already be dead, because you would probably have ignored many things that do have meaning to humans and keep them alive.
I don't think any human is capable of actually thinking that there's absolutely no meaning whatsoever, our brains don't function that way, but even if there were some rare specimens who would, they would not live long and they would certainly be nothing like someone creating threads on HLTV trying to convince others that their worldview is the correct one.
LOL, nah. try to read tractatus logico philosophicus. ur thoughts‘ll change after that.
wow, you are right
you must be really smart
do you watch rick and morty?
Even believing that there is nothing more to life is still a philosophy
i dont think you understand what philosophy is
Philosophy doesn't have any other purpose than questionning the world we live in and that's exactly what you're doing.
yeah, and that is a philosophy too
