You will be "well liked in the morning" by someone that values neither intelligence nor knowledge. Congratulations.

Satre wrote an article defending the concept of it being a humanism. There has been existentialism and existential vs nihilism threads here before, but few and far apart in time.

I don't think conscious awareness of existentialist living is a product of atheism through. Mainly since it's not overally topical to draw much attention these days. The philosophy does fill in a solution or at least ideas to what some religious folks frequently feel God gives them.

Sorry, but 'Raliens' are an example of what?

That atheism doesn't naturally lead to humanisms like existentialism.

Kkk23 seems to have a good fashioned meaning issue. But it's nice to see someone promote their philosophical view while downplaying philosophy.

Then how is it that you are able to communicate using words?

The proposition "Words have no meaning" is self-referentially inconsistent and consequently self-refuting.

What is it that I'm talking through? A computer? Is it? Is it a cup? Is it a column? Is it an airplane? Words are thoroughly meaningless and cannot be called upon as evidence, though can be used as tools. They still have no meaning whatsoever.
