I've been trying to come to terms with the fact that...

    humans, and all life for that matter, are nothing but coincidences. We will die, our planet will be destroyed, our sun will go, making even life on Mars an unrealistic dream. And after all of that, we will be forgotten. There won't be anyone to remember us.

    I'm not referring to the entire population of people as "us," but just you and me. Everything we've ever done won't be remembered by anybody.


    I'm feeling pretty weird about this all. There's basically no point to life; we are nothing but a ripped condom in the smorgasbord orgy that is the Big Bang.


    Discuss. :confused:

    spooner is done.

    I've always found anonymity like that to be comforting.

    Yeah. There is no point to life.

    Might as well have the best time one can. You know?

    But it is interesting to think about how everything we all know will one day be gone.

    You never know, though. If we don't blow ourselves up, at the rate we're evolving now, we may be able to venture into deep space before our solar system ceases. So, while what you say is likely, it's not guaranteed.

    But yes, our existence is completely meaningless. :)

    Yeah, I had that realization. Nothing may matter in the grand scheme of things, and it probably doesn't, but in the meantime, we should try to make things as good of a place as we can for the people around us.

    its always possible that some of 'us' might go on and do something great (ie. murder someone(s) ) and will be remembered
    and even if that's not the case, most of 'us' will be remembered by someone even if its just a person in their future decadence
    eventually the world will end and there is a huge possibility that nothing will be remembered, but really who cares, if you want to be remembered, do something memorable other wise it just doesn't really matter
    to be alive you must die, scientifically speaking..

    It's also kind of cool to think that we're all the same in the end. Whether you're a saintly hero or a rapist killer, you're going to die the same way and become part of the Earth again. :)

    I dont see the point in thinking about this stuff. I mean, you're spending time trying to come to terms with the distant future.

    I think its best to live here in the moment, taking pleasure in the details.

    Hopefully if you're a hero you'll at least get a street named after you, and some kids will hate reasing about you in history class til the earth gets incenerated. [​IMG]

    You could also try religion I guess.

    You can at least convince yourself that your lifes important that way.

    Meh, for a while I was certain that we are not a coincidence.

    But after watching a few things on the science channel, the truth seems to be so obvious.


    She blinded me with science. :D That bitch. :D
     
  15. I agree good point. But I do feel the human race in a whole should be thinking more on our not so distant future( gobal warming, world war 3, Paris Hilton's music career, ect.) instead

    Why should we, though? Who's to say you shouldn't just do whatever YOU want, regardless if you have to kill/destroy/torture/ruin/steal/etc.? The idea that we should help eachother is just something we made up... no one told use we have to do that. I'm not saying I disagree with you, but it's something to think about. There really is no good reason, other than the fact that I don't want to, for me not to go on a killing spree right now. I would never do it, because I wouldn't get enjoyment from that (I couldn't do it, actually), but there's no real reason why I shouldn't.

    That's what I've been trying to wrap my head around lately, that there are no rules not made by man. There are no morals that we must follow; nothing. It's all a lie. The idea that murder, probably considered the worst act you can commit, is "bad," is a lie.

    I've been thinking about all that too...

    For most of my life, I've felt guilty if I'm not being a good person. But now, I feel so...weird...... because I think I know that it doesn't matter now.


    And there are so many religious people.... 95% of the world's population or somewhere's around that... who believe in a God. What a waste of time? :D

    haha.. well yes. i do think we should take precautions in making sure we take good care of the earth and each other.. but thats something i do now. i dont make plans to "take care about it later". Recycling, planting trees, walking instead of driving, etc are all .. spiritual connections with the earth in my eyes. which is a now thing. if that makes sense :p

    Well, most people but not all are born with a conscience and can determine right from wrong. I can completely see what you're saying, but most people cannot commit murder/rape/etc., without knowing their actions are wrong in some form. I believe this isn't attributed to just conditioning that society has engrained in people, but a part of how humans think and act.

    But, perhaps our conscience is really a handicap. Because our conscience is really illogical, isn't it? Perhaps rising above our conscience is the next step in human evolution.
