Hey, I'm new here but I was wondering if anyone else had pondered on these same thoughts as me? Something that always gets me confused is when I imagine nothing, at all. It'd probably be like death…Continue
I don't think that nothing could possibly exist. I mean, if
there is no first cause, there is no valid, logical question
about how and why things exist.
Hawking was asked the old question "what was there before the "Big…"
"It's interesting, I met this hardcore christian girl the other day online my age. I've talked to her for atleast 10 hours total. I normally wouldn't care if she was christian except that she's also practicing abstadence(I…"
"Hi Dan, i understand your thoughts, but, i feel another way than you do. Instead of having a god who NEVER shows up, i mean never, i am lucky enough to have real live humans who care about me, who ALWAYS show up if i am in a jam.
Instead of having…"
"Again, wanting to have a name is egocentric. The things that scares me the most at death is that I won't be able to satisfy my curiosity and find out how the future generations will live. Many scientists died and their creations were valued…"
"It depends on how you define nothing. When you think about nothing you think about 'something' ( a black empty space ). It is hard to think about it, since it is nothing. Nothing is the negation of thing ( something ).
Not-thing. Not is…"
"I think about it too. Its amazing how we can't fathom not existing. And i think that is what makes me stop and appreciate life. Everyone will die at some point, and there is no rewind button. That's why we should take pictures, experience…"
"The nice thing about living without a religion or god is you can live in the present. You don't have to worry about your 'afterlife' or subscribe to rituals or silly rules to secure your place in it.
You can live life each moment…"
"All good points, I don't fear death but I do not want to be dead as I'm enjoying my life. Nor in my death will I care as I'm dead. This is mostly why I want children, so my name will live on in the world. My want to achieve is from…"
"Living is better than death... that's an interesting statement. Both seem to me to just be. Living is cool, it's fun and it's hard at times. But I don't know about death. Who does, and therefore what comparisons can be made? Life…"
"Living is better than death in most cases, unless you were really suffering. I personally wouldn't like the children of my children or whomever to be afraid of death. It is inevitable but still something that is not preferred.
Why do we fight…"
No free will, I never really believed in religion as a kid I didn't understand what I was learning in church. I just went and was bored. As I grew up I moved to Australia and never went to church. Eventually I had an interest for documentaries and started watching them. Was Atheist basically all my life but I don't know what would of happened if I stayed in New Zealand.
