The universe will eventually die. Everything will be gone for literal eternity unless a 2nd big bang happens. (which would be practically eternity)

If the 2nd big bang ever does happen and somehow there's more life then they'll never be able to know we ever existed. If they did they wouldn't know our names.

Tell me, anon, what's stopping you from killing yourself, shoot up a school, do anything to give you at least some attention after you're gone in this miserable world? It's the objective goal in life. Let people know you're there, that you're someone. It doesn't matter in the long run, but it's a natural human comfort knowing that you'll somewhat be kept alive in conversation after you're gone. Nothing matters. It's been said millions of times, but it really doesn't.

NOTHING

FUCKING

MATTERS

The universe will FUCKING DIE and NOBODY will remember we ever existed

When I get the chance I'll make a name for myself. Any fellow neets should follow my advice.

If nothing matters then atheism is as good as godism and it doesn't matter if I choose to believe in spirituality anyway. If nothing matters, why should I buy your second-rate nihilism "truth"? Your argument is degenerate. Your deductions are only relevant in a scientific context, but you've included no proper science in your post.

>The universe will eventually die.

Yeah, billions of years later, and even that is hotly (heh) debated. Do you know how long a billion years is? Let me put it like this: A billion seconds is longer than you've been alive. A billion minutes ago Rome was still a unified empire. A billion hours ago neanderthals ruled Europe uncontested.

 No.272680

Not OP but a few problems with your post:

At first glance you are correct; if nothing matters, atheism (by which you probably mean Nihilism) is as good as Godism. The problem is that the moment you start buying into Godism, suddenly everything matters again. It's like saying

>In the sentence "This sentence has 57 characters in it, except spaces and punctuation." you can swap "57" for "fifty seven" and the sentence would mean the same thing.

It's technically true, but it would make the sentence wrong.

So I disagree. Atheism [i]Nihilism[i] isn't as good as Godism for a Nihilist, from a Nihilists perspective.

Both perspectives are indifferent in you're an observer. It doesn't matter if someone is a Godist or an Atheist if you believe they're both going to perish eventually. But they are not indifferent when you're talking about your own faith.

And I should specify my own stand on this issue for transparency; I'm an atheist but definitely some edgy Nihilist nerd. While it is true nothing truly matters, it's also a fact that we're here in the material world breathing and salivating and thinking, and I think there's nothing wrong in enjoying these physical realities while we can.

Well, I do appreciate the well written reply reddit, although you should consult the FAQ for help on formatting. Anyways, here's my retort:

The paradox does not manifest in practice because the interlocutors in this hypothetical are discrete agents. Their thoughts are isolated from each other. Even if they attempt to communicate through words or otherwise, that merely produces an experience for the other party which may be believed or disbelieved or otherwise arbitrarily interpreted, rather than actually transferring their thoughts.

The Godist in this case is not using nihilism as justification for his faith; he does not believe in godism because nothing matters so he might as well (this is also why I think Pascal's wager is very weak, but I digress). Rather, he subscribes to godism because he accepts it as a self-evident a priori truth, or as is commonly said, "takes it on faith". From his perspective the Nihilist is misguided and/or deceived by the Devil. Thus the Godist may even feel a moral imperative to enlighten and convert the Nihilist.

The Nihilist may not use his nihilism as grounds for abandoning his nihilism in favor of godism. This would create a circular paradox as you have correctly recognized. However, observe: The Nihilist is precluded from attempting to convert the Godist because it does not matter, in his opinion, whether the Godist accepts the truth of Nihilism or not.

Therefore both nihilism and godism are not by themselves inconsistent views to hold in so far as can be reasonably expected. However, it is clearly inconsistent for OP, a self-styled Nihilist, to attempt to convert me to nihilism. It is no accident that in my post I chose the first person, not the second: I was attacking not OP's beliefs, but his evangelism. By his own admission, nothing matters, so this thread (to him) could not have been anything but a waste of time and he must be indifferent to whether anyone replies or does become convinced by him.

>>272682

Honestly nihilism in the sense of throwing your life away and not caring about anything is retarded normalfaggotry. Back when Nietzsche first came out with his thoughts a lot of dumb normalfaggots did not bother understanding what he actually said and just went by popular memes (surprise). In fact, Nietzsche was saying that God as a basis of morality and philosophy is no longer realistic post-enlightenment, and therefore one should create one's own system of beliefs and principles one cares deeply about and wants to fight for. He in fact considered Christians the most nihilistic in the popular sense, since most of them just mindlessly consume biblical dogma and never acquire a single ideal worth fighting for in their whole life.

Not an expert on Nietzsche tbh tho, sorry if I'm wrong.


 No.272717

Nothing really is stopping us from killing ourselves or conducting a school shooting, but why would I care for attention? I'm not a faggot or a roastie.

I would much rather live a life of progress and pleasure than care to be remembered or leave a legacy I will never get to witness. All that matters is what you derive from life itself because, as you said, the universe will die and nothing fucking matters.

Whether shooting up a school will add to your enjoyment of life is debatable, but that's a discussion for another time.

To get this shit show back on track.

>The universe will eventually die. Everything will be gone for literal eternity unless a 2nd big bang happens. (which would be practically eternity)

>If the 2nd big bang ever does happen and somehow there's more life then they'll never be able to know we ever existed. If they did they wouldn't know our names.

Indeed. After reading Asimovs "The last question" this became evident to me and put in perspective a lot of things. Whether or not this universe is finite or a small part of a cycle of big bangs endlessly creating new universes, doesn't really matter in the grand scale of things because eventually the world will reach maximum entropy and go dark forever. On the off chance that humanity gets its shit together and escapes earth in search of new resources it still won't solve the problem that all of the energy available in the world is still running down. A good analogy being that if all the stars and suns are candles, some may be longer than others but they will all eventually burn out and we will eventually draw as much energy from chemical reactions and so forth as we can. It's sort of like a cosmic peak oil problem.

As an aside; Another great read that is tangentially related but explores what motivates people (and partly answers the question part of this topic) is "Emotional Amoral Egoism: A Neurophilosophical Theory of Human Nature and its Universal Security Implications". Why don't I kill myself or go on a rampage? Because aside from not accomplishing much I am still held back by fear, a desire to experience more pleasure before death and a lack of sufficient motivators to push me over the edge into willing self termination. Besides no matter what I do I will eventually be forced to die anyway so there is no reason to get bent out of shape over it. I think if it ever came down to it I would just get drunk and take a shotgun blast to the head. I read that that is one of the fastest and most surefire ways to end it.

Lastly I see the terms nihilism and atheism getting thrown around a lot but a more grounded outlook is that of philosophical pessimism. If you haven't already I would encourage you to read "the conspiracy against the human race" to explore this topic in more depth. The problem with a nihilistic outlook is that you have both seen too much, and not enough.

I really do pity you atheistic nihilists. You left behind everything that made your civilization powerful, and now it's a decrepit wreck. Instead of rebuilding, or making some monument to your people, like the pagans and people of the book did, you cope by retreating into senseless hedonism and telling yourself the death of your people doesn't even matter.

 No.272750

>>272733

I appreciate the thought behind your attempt but you are barking up the wrong tree. Aside from that you are also mistaken. Atheistic nihilism in general doesn't coincide with hedonism and what I'm guessing is your dig at globalism. The state of the west in general is mostly due to an overeager hunger for life and "experiencing things" aka interacting with as many people as possible. As for you or anyone's ambitions for world conquest go, good luck with that. Better than you have tried and failed, because humans by nature will always be disunified and at war against themselves. Religious schisms occur all the time, like it or not there is no way to ever permanently corral everyone into your way of thinking.

And yes I realize that this is bait but I am bored and it provides a good platform for further discussion. Nice use of arabic text in the picture by the way. Adds to the act quite well. Could use a bit more subtlety overall though, it does come off a bit ham-fisted.

I realize that /r9k/ is a board for people that have given up hope, but anyone can revert at any time. We were made by Allah as his servants, and it is in that capacity that we find our purpose - as individuals and a people.

Tell me, what defines the west more than hedonism, empty beliefs and a void where Isa al-Masih used to be? I'm not commenting on "globalism" - Islam is a global religion, and a global caliphate is inevitable. Yes, the west seeks nothing higher than ephemeral pleasure as the highest ideal of life, because there is nothing left. This is the end state of men who've abandoned higher callings. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) told us a time will come when all is Dar al-Islam, and so it shall be. Europe has always stood against the faith, and now it doesn't, so maybe that foretold time is now, and maybe not. Either way, it is inevitable because Islam makes man revert to his true and blessed nature, unlike godless ideologies and false religions.

Allah is eternal, and the providence he gives us is as well, but you would rather turn to nothing.

To what end? Your fake god has no love, unlike that of the Christian God.

All this shows that God is Love, and not the impersonal monstrosity that is the Muslim fake god.

Kind of ignoring the larger point I was trying to make but sure I'll reiterate it for you. How many different sects of Islam are there besides the big 2? How many regional variations and conflicting interpretations are there? You could conquer the world tommorow and all it would take is half a generation before internecine disagreements brought the world back to square one. But even disregarding that what grand plan does Islam have after converting everyone? Islam won't stop the universes resources or energy supply from dwindling down to nothing. It won't stop the inevitable heat death of the universe. I have a feeling that you are rather limited in your appreciation and understanding of exactly the situation that yourself and the world in general is in. All your postering, fighting and struggling is in vain. One day you and your beliefs will die along with everything else and all will be forgotten, having made no difference in the final outcome.

The universe is expanding and the rate of expansion is accelerating.

The big crunch theory was just an attempt to avoid the beginning of time, and a shitty one at that.

Why the fuck would you assume that it's "the objective goal in life" to receive attention from other people? If there is some objective goal in life (which I'm not assuming), it would be something transcendental, which human animals certainly are not.

There is a bit of an issue in that some people seem to believe that thermodynamic heat death won't occur, or that they need not be rationally compelled to accept it given our current evidence. Thermodynamics is practically a closed science. This is so certain that the intellectual price tag for simply denying it is higher than the cost for saying that "God will intervene in nature" or that "this is a computer simulation that will end", or that "the end has already happened and we're boltzmann brains". At least some evidence could be produced for those ideas, but shit like Brownian ratchets or infinite entropy black holes have been thoroughly debunked.

It's much father in the future than a billion years. It's actually closer to like a googolplex years from now, which is an insane amount. By that time I imagine humanity will have had long enough to perceive and travel(?) to/exist on higher dimensions. Or we could say fuck it and just a new universe via simulation by leeching power off of a supermassive black hole by building a giant mirror around it, launching shit into it, and then bouncing the radiation around in the mirror until it turns into near infinite energy.

In either case, big crunch or heat death, Humanity will have changed so drastically or have been dead for so long that it wouldn't possibly matter. There's no way to live long enough for either outcome to matter to us, so unless we get personal space ships, unlimited free energy, and perfect medicine that negates the slow and steady genetic degradation taking place in humanity all in the next few years, none of it matters. Humanity may live on for a long time and still be die out before our sun dies, or just fizzle out in the next century or two after poorly conceived social engineering schemes leaves us with a genetic slurry that results in a species of extremely low IQ, disease-ridden, subhumans.

We're still a long way from even investigating the possibility of researching the technology necessary to approach a black hole so we can begin seeing if that's even possible. Even if we knew for sure that we could build an unlimited energy device, we still can't travel through space with ease or even begin constructing large scale facilities in the void of space. It would still be thousands and thousands of years at this rate before we even find a black hole we can get to.

It's already too late for the simple big crunch scenarios, and the convoluted ones don't have evidence. There is no escaping this shitty conclusion without some kind of metaphysic.

Read Camus. If you lived forever you'd find life to just as absurd. Just because something lasts as longer doesnt mean its more important. As nothing has intrinsic value. You are as important as the entire multiverse because youre both just as meaningless. People feel that they are worthless because they are a speck in a cold and infinite void. Im here to tell you that youre not. Every thing is made of the same shit you are and is just as absurd as you. Being really big, or living a really long time, doesnt make you more important. Importance is an illusion. The realization that life is meaningless should be liberating. The ratio of living things to non-living things shows that the probability of your existence being close to nothing. You have a unique opportunity in this world. To explore, create, love, lose, and win. No glob of matter will ever get this opportunity. No one should follow your advice. Fame decays and as infinity stretches out it reduces it to nothing. You'll have wasted this tiny break from the void to be remembered by a universe that will forget you in the blink of an eye.

Listen to me anons. OP find his life meaningless because he creates no meaning. He feels fear because if he were to die right now his life would be shameful and uneventful.

So dont be him.

Your mind will tell you not too. It will tell you thats normalfag shit. Your mind wishes only to remain in the comfy warm pool of inaction. Doing new shit is painful. Life is painful. But the feeling of triumph. Of gettting better. Of living a life thats yours and no one elses is one of the greatest pleasures you can experience.

We already knew that. Also these terms have different meanings, they're not the same.

If the good feels of an immortal mind aren't sufficient to have meaning value or purpose then the good feels of us animals, who have to deal with our fucking universe dying in addition to our own lives and work, definitely don't have those things

“Time as you know had a beginning and time has an end and then time begins again. As we shall each live our lives again exactly as before, I have been gifted to see into the old cycles of time. Not very clearly mind you, but I have learned that in the future-past the Brunnen-G, the great victor in the war against the insect civilisation, shall be destroyed at the hand of His Shadow. But after His Shadow leaves the Cluster they will be destroyed at the hands of the Brunnen-G. This has happened before and it will happen again.” — The Time Prophet

If our civilization survives to and through the Singularity, it's actually not impossible that our civilization could last literally forever. Given billions of years to advance technologically, combined with having superintelligence billions of times smarter than a human alive today, it's not impossible that we might find some way around the heat death of the universe. For instance, we could potentially find a way to colonize other universes, create new universes and colonize them, or use some other unknown technology.
