Life is completely pointless. And that is very good actually. The fact that life is pointless, gives you the chance to create your own personal meaning of your own individual life. There is no benchmark that decides if a life is pointless or not, amirite?

This is the kind of post that sounds great until you think for 2 seconds. No objective meaning means a pointless existence. Even if you create your own meaning, you're just fooling yourself into thinking you've found meaning. If life is meaningless, then everything we do is meaningless. It makes no difference whether I kill a baby or eat a tomato. They are both morally equivalent actions. In a billion years, the universe will have reached full entropy anyways, so everything will have dissolved into a cold homogeneous mix of particles.

Well, a cosmic meaninglessness does not stop societies from creating moral codes based on what they find to be most beneficial to the happiness and survival of the community. Cosmic meaninglessness does not let you off the hook of the morality defined by society.

And if we are deceiving ourselves with meaning even though there is none, whatchya gonna do about it? If that's the truth, the truth hurts, so may as well take the silver lining of making meaning for yourself

Life is pointless, it doesn't matter whether you kill a baby or eat a tomato, just the morals of society and instincts have fooled you other wise, think about it, could you kill someone? Sure, nothing is stopping you but laws created by other humans, the only thing holding you back are these things created by other humans to regulate society so that we can work together towards a common goal which we all seem to have agreed is the progression of humanity as a species, at least, that's what it seems like we chose as our common goal looking back in history.

Just to revisit your Santa Claus analogy: When I was a young kid, I wholeheartedly believed in Santa Claus. I didn't have any explanation, but I was sure, I was absolutely sure, that Santa Claus was real. As a first-grader, I ignored the fact that there was no logical basis whatsoever, because it was more fun to believe in magic. Obviously, a year or two passed and I found out I was wrong.
The point is that we often underestimate the power of wishful thinking. Of indoctrination. But ultimately, those beliefs that have no logical basis will crumble.

Didn't read all of those comments, but I did read the first few and some in between.

Let's be a little reflective.
Atheists, if a christian came up to you and tried to force their beliefs down your throat, you'd be pretty annoyed, right? And you'd have every right to be.
So how come it's suddenly perfectly all right for you to completely bash their beliefs? Aren't you also shoving your atheistic beliefs down their throats? Because obviously you know everything, right?
You're being very childish and immature and you clearly have some serious growing up to do.
I don't know why you feel this sort of self-entitlement simply because you're atheist.
You also fail to realize that atheists have one extremely vital trait in common with their religious brethren: both of you believe in something that cannot be proven by fact. Neither of you will know anything until death.

Maybe you guys should stop being such close-minded cockmonglers. I hope you realize that close-mindedness is exactly what's wrong with this world.

The way I see it: if all life is meaningless, then Pug's allusion of meaning by serving God is just as valid as any allusion of meaning that YeahIAm comes up with. Whatever works for the individual, let them run with it.

Of course you're not bashing anyone, spareseconds, these are real dilemmas faced by people all the time, and something I've faced myself, having been raised Christian to later reject it. It'd be absurd for someone to claim that a dilemma is "bashing" or "wrong". The idea of infinite punishment for finite crimes was one that I simply couldn't reconcile in my mind and led to the beliefs I have today.

I'm not saying you implied this, but Christians can give meaning to their lives too. We don't "blindly" follow whatever our pastor or the Bible says like zombies. God has given us the gift of free will for that reason, so we can choose what to believe and whether or not to follow God's word. Even if you believe there is nothing after life, why would you waste what time you have alive by believing it's pointless? You need to cherish the time you have, no matter your faith, because you will get nowhere without motivation, and soon you will be gone from life and onto the afterlife, should there be one.

So essentially what this experiential-based spirituality hinges on is: once you experience it, you can't go back to thinking it is anything BUT God in reality. But what I'm saying is that there are many different experiences that people have, some of which that are seemingly contradictory to this particular God. There are people who have experienced Buddhist enlightenment, people who have seen the Hindu gods in their visions, and people who have had mystical union with the divine, perhaps somewhere in the Native American-populated rural areas of Mexico.

I am not saying one is right and the rest are wrong, I am not saying they are all wrong or all right. What I am saying is that for me, to take all this into account means that simply focusing on one religion as the true one is easier said than done. There's a reason why experiences tend to be culturally based.

And sorry if none of this makes sense, I'm having trouble wording it.

"tolerance" gets thrown around a lot. Just to clarify: you can tolerate something and still view it as 100% incorrect. If we all saw things the same way, we wouldn't have to tolerate them but would simply agree with each other. Therefore tolerance is an admission that you view your own ideas as correct and someone else's as mistaken, but simply making that admission in a respectful "agree to disagree" way.

"Exclusive" beliefs are thus no more intolerant than "inclusive" beliefs. We all make exclusive claims to truth but can choose to do so respectfully or not. Consider: if you call someone intolerant because they has an exclusive faith (for example, Christians who believe that the only road to salvation is through Jesus) , aren't you being equally exclusive in your beliefs by saying that inclusive beliefs are the only acceptable ones?

The key is to form beliefs based on our best reasons available to us, but understand and respect that others will disagree. Someone is only "intolerant" if they fail to respect others' views in their disagreement

I also think it's funny that people are downvoting Len. There are people all over the world who have experienced their gods/goddesses and claim that it is 100% real and 100% true. If the conditions of YOUR God are that your God exists where no other gods exist, then SOMEONE is wrong. And people would rather just downvote and offer no argument than discuss that.

Saying that is NOT the same as saying "you're religion is stupid hurr durr". People write off any kind of criticism or questioning as "shoving down people's throats" or "bashing". Yes, some of these posts WERE bashing and were worded rudely, but other people were just trying to get at the truth and it's sad that people would rather they don't.

I don't think you (and many many other people) are wise. "Doubt is the origin of true wisdom". Well, I really don't see you doubting about the existence of God. And hallucination, imagination, indoctrination,... are not depending on your age and experience. You are falling in a trap, a trap of your own human wishes. That is not a good reason. That is a bas reason.

I will never understand why people get so pissed off at AppAwesome over the ratings.

Because they're absolutely pointless.

Reviews are posted for movies and books so consumers can decide whether or not they should see/read the product. We've already read the post, and it's therefore useless in that aspect.

Furthermore, there's already a set system for expressing agreement or disagreement with the post. If someone wants to view how others perceive the post, they can view the post score and/or the number of favorites. No one gives a **** what AppAwesome thinks.

I think they don't know about the Block feature amirite? has. Probably because he secretly wants to know what I rate his future POTD. IF HE GETS ONE.

Also, the point of POTD is to bring in users, since the POTD is the first thing they see. If they see something terrible there, they won't like it, most likely. That's why I give ratings. To say what I think of it.

AppAwesome, if I block you, you'll be unable to send me messages but I'll still be able to see your comments in anonymous form.

Anyway, I've already had a POTD: http://amirite.net/725692 . Just please don't rate it.

YeahIAm, if AppAwesome wasn't just taking you for a ride his comments would still be perfectly fine because he's giving his opinion on the post and telling us how he feels about it.
Do I care or find his 'reviews' constructive most of the time? Not really, but the site is based completely on what he does. You just don't like him (d).

I have an idea. Ignore the ratings. Could be easier said than done...

Furthermore, we also already have a set system for expressing agreement or disagreement with the comments
If you wish to show your approval, disagreement, or love for a comment simply proceed the the end of said comment. There you will find, located in the bottom right hand corner, three buttons.

You started off saying life is completely pointless; then you said there is no benchmark to say if it is pointless or not. That means it's not always pointless and is subjective.

Sure life has a meaning! There are clues hidden in nature.
The most number of spheres that can be in simultaneous contact? 3! A B C
The number of suns in our solar system? 1! A
The number of proteinogenic amino acids that are encoded by the standard genetic code? 20! A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T
The first number with more than one digit that can be written from base 2 to base 19 using only the digits 0 to 9? 19! A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S

In the grand flow of time our lives are inconsequential. But we're also the 'God' of our own existence.

My purpose in life is to serve my God. I know it's been posted by Pug before. Although I know it'll get me thumbs downs and people trying to prove me wrong, I don't care. It is called faith for a reason. :)

My purpose in life is to serve my God too :) He told me to kill my daughter and I almost did, but then he was like "lol, just playing, bro! It means a lot to me that you would do though." She doesn't talk to me very much anymore.

My purpose in life is self-defined. I think we all ultimately want to accomplish certain goals with minimal negative affect on other life. I don't believe that in order to self-define meaning, ultimate meaning has to exist. They are independent of each other. Likewise, if you DO believe that life has an ultimate cosmic meaning, you can still have self-defined personal meaning.

Furthermore, not all atheists believe life doesn't have ultimate meaning. Many Buddhists don't believe in a god, yet they still believe that enlightenment, a mystical and metaphysical experience, is their ultimate goal.

This is the same logic people use to justify their claims that Skyrim is the best game ever.
