Your life has no intrinsic meaning. The universe doesn't give a shit about you.

I actually find this world quite entertaining. I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm happy with it. But amused perhaps?

I am no fan of loaded phrases. Everything is a point of view issue. I like to take everything as case by case and "it depends".

Ultimately this is the only home 7 billion humans have, so I take Dawkins view condemning Plato's idea of "essence" which has lead humans since to chase impossible utopias. I take Sagan's view in his Pale Blue dot, just with more blunt language. This is the only home all 7 billion of us have and both friend and foe alike all take the same ride that begins and ends the same way.

The meaning of life is to die well. The End is the end.

What an idiotic notion.
The journey is the destination.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Precisely how does one die well?

No, that's stupid on so many many levels.

That's nice, your ignorance is not an argument.

Those are, in no fucking way, even tangentially related. One does not follow from the other.
