RE: What is your view of humanity and life?
I think without going into a long winded response, I would describe humanity as the sum of experiences and innovation.

“Life... is like a grapefruit. Well, it's sort of orangey-yellow and dimpled on the outside, wet and squidgy in the middle. It's got pips inside, too. Oh, and some people have half a one for breakfast.”

Life is like a cesspool; you only get out of it what you put into it.

RE: What is your view of humanity and life?
For one thing, I am not a misanthrope. I would say misanthropy is just another way of hating someone for something that they have no control over, and that is always unreasonable. Furthermore, I don't need more negativity in my life as it stands, so I'd have to stay away from that anyway. I am not a total optimist, but I am very optimistic with regards to technological advancements. We've seen more advancement in this century than any other, and it's only going to accelerate even further, which I am very excited for.

I think religion is mostly harmful, but it can help some people in some cases. At the same time, I don't think religion is necessary for anyone. I don't believe in any gods, as I have not been convinced by any of the arguments for them, and there is no evidence that any of them exist. I dislike the Abrahamic religions, especially for the desire for thought control, and the demonization of non-believers.

With regards to life, it is very fragile. Anything can happen and you're not always prepared for it. So, don't take it too seriously. That's all I can really say about that.

Are you perhaps experiencing denial? Are you afraid of the truth?

What truth?

How did this become a question of humanity? Is it the huge manatee?

I go us and them on that shit, where humanity is the scientifically literate or those willing to be, and them. Angry

That's pretty much my take on things, but I would say that while I'm not a misanthrope, life experiences have made me not much more trusting than a misanthrope. I'm past my "best used by" date, really.

This business of not taking life too seriously is spot-on; caring too much and trying too hard have been the source of most of my suffering in life. My wife has taught me to laugh at absurdity, though I doubt I'll ever be as good at it as she is.

Flexing with circumstances rather than attempting to remake circumstance to your taste, is another key. The world is a very unfriendly place for idealists. It's a curse to see what is possible and/or just; you always end up comparing it to the actual.

I think some people are good and some are bad. I don't agree with some things people believe. We all make mistakes but no one is perfect. You can choose to learn from your mistakes or repeat them. But then again I don't totally understand the question...

My view on humanity is that I don't care if it lives or dies just as long as it lives long enough for me to live a while before I die.
