    "God is dead." :)lol:)

    Anyways, what are your thoughts on it?

    I consider myself a passive nihilist with roots in existential and moral nihilism (although I'm not entirely sure yet... I still need to explore a little further).

    Here's a general idea of what it is:

    It destroys all the fun in creative living!:tongue:

    Nihilism is such a drag. I prefer Hedonist alot more.

    you'll grow out of it by your junior year.

    you'll probably stop wearing all black and affecting an ineffable air of ennui around the same time.

    you're unique, just like everybody else.

    Count me in. I wonder why we get so much time to think about it. I'm running out of filler.

    I don't really feel you understand what nihilism is...

    Here's my attitude about it: Since life is meaningless, make what you can out of it.

    Seems like a lot of effort to invest in making something that's meaningless.

    The reason why I choose to live and make what I can out of life is purely subjective and fueled by the desire to do so (which is an innate/biological occurrence that happens with all organisms). If this desire were to end, then I would certainly end my life.
