Am I the only one on here thinking of things that are so beyond me that I have no business to think about them? Maybe, after all, it is just a thought experiment of insanity. As a species, what is the purpose of humanity?
For religion, it would be to reproduce… Well, in the grand scheme of things, it’s mission accomplished. Over-population will no doubt be the death of humanity if disease x or nuclear war doesn’t do it first.
For science, it is to advance mankind. Notice the keyword there is mankind. The planet we call home and the animals we rule over are screwed. In the case of technology, Skynet, Matrix or Planet of the Apes caused by humanity’s hubris will be the end.
For me, as a nihilist, our purpose is just to be the butt end of one big cosmic joke! That everything we do and live for is just a bunch of selfish, individualistic hubris! For the people on here outside of the religious who have their hypothetical “heavens” to go to, what is the point in our suffering!? To be remembered!? Will being remembered make up for the fact I have a screwed-up brain that constantly thinks nothingness will be better than this something!? No, it won’t… I hate this world of winners and losers. If I could wish it different, I would but I can’t because no one can change human nature… Isn’t that one of the saddest things of all when one of its own sons concludes that the best cure for humanity is a collective bullet to the head?
