Nihilists Unite!!!!
As a moderate nihilist, i believe we should all unite under a common banner for anarchy.

Enough said. Laughat


Well, anyways I have recently found that my belief system of the world slightly relates with nihilism. I believe that what you have not experienced does not exist, because if you have not experienced it, then how do you know there is other things in the world. Example: You see a dog, you pet the dog. Therefore dog is real. If you had not had that encounter, how would you know it existed, because you have not experienced it. Thoughts on this?

Existential nihilist, over here.

Life has no inherent meaning. Doesn't mean it's pointless. We each choose the meaning of our own lives.

RE: Nihilists Unite!!!!
I would consider myself a nihilist.

I have no belief in any of the following:
- Gods
- Morality
- Absolute right/wrong
- Absolute purpose

Although I do believe in the existence of things that I haven't touched.

RE: Nihilists Unite!!!!
Well you're taking things purely on empirical evidence. The optimal methodology.

I think your full stance on the topic is indeterminable from that example though. Clearly you believe in taking things in physically but what about through other forms of information.

If you a non-fiction book about Japan, does just the book exist and not the Islands that compose Japan?

I would consider myself Existential but not Nihilist. I do see people giving meaning to their lives even though it has no true absolute.

Well i may not have been entirely clear. Another example: I read a book about Japan. I wonder if it true or not. I find another source that states Japan is real. I believe Japan is real.

Yea, you basically debunked what I thought. Now time to find another obscure belief in the world!

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
