    Well, I will agree that life has no inherent purpose - but that doesn't mean it has NO purpose. You are here for perhaps 80 years or so, regardless of how many childish threads you make, so just grow up and make the most of it like everyone else.

    Just do whatever makes you happy.

    If the average life-route of mortgage, kids and a dead-end job doesn't suit you - go out and do something else :holmes:

    A handy bonus in life is freedom - you're free to go have an adventure, fall in love and sleep under the stars. I'd recommend it
    An adventure which always ends this same, pathetic way. And in the end, no one will remember you or give a **** about you. No one cares, everyone forgets. After all, we're just the same decaying material as everyone else. No one is special. No one is unique. No one is loved. It's just chemicals. And we all die some day, why bother wasting pointless years trying to find an 'inner self' or a sense well being when it's all in vain?

    Says who? I haven't enjoyed my life at all. Why should I try to continue?

    Erm ... no.

    You sound like a disillusioned, depressed and demotivated pleb.

    Other people are motivated, ambitious and have goals that they wish to achieve. Others do not remain confined. Some of these others are even high-earners, wealthy entrepreneurs, wealthy, ambitious and comfortable higher persons in society.

    There is no point - you create your own point.

    If you are still struggling, then by all means do the Race a favour and perform your evolutionary obligations (in your case.... :rip:)

    Death isn't pathetic, it's necessary - we age, we shut down, we make space for future generations, freeing up resources for them. And those chemicals are just elements, which are just sub atomic particles, which are just quarks. Deconstructing something isn't an argument for it not existing. Quite happy to say I love my family, my friends and my girlfriend - take it from a biologist, just because they're signals and chemicals doesn't make them mean any less :rolleyes:

    I'd rather spend years with a sense of well being and happiness than decide it's not worth it and do something more drastic. Death isn't dark, or cold, or a gateway to another world - it's just nothing. I'll take life over nothingness.

    Life isn't about how it ends. It about what do before you get there.

    Well so what? You're going to be dead for a very long time, which doesn't mean you should just look on life as a pointless intermission before nothingness. Make the most of the time you have. You will have people who love and care about you, especially if you adopt a more positive attitude, and who will continue to do so after you die. If your parents died tomorrow, would you forget about them next week? It's a stupid argument. And people are special to those who care about them. So what if it's not the world at large? Sure it would be nice to be a great name remembered a few generations later etc. but not being one is not something to be scoffed at. I think you'll find most people when they die will be happy that they have lived a long fulfilled life and are surrounded by loved ones. Not to twist this into anything emotional but I had a very good friend who died last year. She was the life and soul of everything and got so much out of life. She was teaching English in South Asia having the time of her life and died from food poisoning. She was only 21. She would have given everything to have lived a lot longer. It angers me when i think of her and how much she just went for things and hear about people bemoaning life. I absolutely understand that is a symptom of depression though, it's moreso the idea of it rather than the people themselves.

    Depressingly looking to the future gains you nothing you wouldn't have it you cheered up.

    Life is amazing - if you're beautiful.

    If you're ugly, then you yeah, what is the point of living?
    Ffs. Why do you seek so much attention? Every post you always talk about your looks. Accept and embrace who you are, because if you can't no one else will. Just generally grow up.

    I do accept the fact that I'm ugly. FFS, I've been saying it all the time - of course I know I am.

    No, I don't care. Because I'm not beautiful, damn right I have the right to speak my mind.

    So what - only beautiful people can speak their mind?

    Maybe there is some crazy point in life but nobody knows it until you do die? Or maybe there isn't. Who cares, you're here now so you might as well have some fun. There's no point over thinking things like this.

    You missed the point of my post maybe I worded it wrong, I was trying to say why do you always feel the need to put yourself down in nearly all your posts? Your probably exaggerating about your looks, as most of us tend to criticise ourselves harder than others do. Where in my post did I say beautiful people are the only one's who can speak their mind?

    You're right, everything is pointless, but that doesn't mean you can't be happy. I think it's best just to indulge your animalistic pleasures at every opportunity, trip on every chemical that comes by, see as much of the world as you can and just generally fit as much enjoyment in as you can before you're too old and knackered to bother anymore. What else are you gonna do? Watch the telly? Go to ****ing work?

    So suicide is the right option then?

    Probably.
    No they aren't. That can be easily explained by simple biological/psychological processes. At the end of the day human beings are nothing more than pathetic beings who managed to crawl to the top of the food chain. No one will be remembered. No one is ever loved truly. It's just a useless postulate that is explained by science. No one if special or unique. We all die anyway so why bother living any longer in a world of pointlessness?

    No, but life sure is. Living is always going to be a problem because we die. We all end, no matter how often we try to prolong it. Freeing up resources doesn't stop the inevitable end for any one human being or the likely end to humanity. Love is merely a chemical, unpoetic, pathetic feeling which arises out of a desire of attachment. That diminishes any understanding of what 'love' is - take it from a scientist, love can be reduced to explanation in a labaratory, it be subjected to tests, it can be disected like the miserable thing it is. Love is nothing unique about humans - it's just an uneccesary amount of attachment.

    I'd rather die now than live another worthless day on this miserable and doomed planet. There's nothing worth living for when you reduce everything down to that basis.

    my answer would be no, mainly because you could potentially ruin the lives of others and i do think people who seriously consider/attempt suicide are in need of a lot of help, whether psycological, physical or just support.

    there are options you can take, you need to confront what you don't like about living and make a change where possible. don't like living in this country? pack up and move. there is an entire world out there... you aren't just confined to one place. i'm not really sure what you mean by confined lives because imo you can break out of that it really just depends on what you want out of life and what you are willing to do in order to change.
