Screw your edgelord nihilism. Some of us prefer to live in a world where we don't watch millions of people suffer from crop failure and ecological collapse. And I bet if you believed you'd be one of the first to be impacted you wouldn't have such a blase attitude to it all. At least we now know rea...

Yes, nothing has value. Goals and desires have value to me as an individual for selfish, hedonistic purposes. It is not that ''deep''. We are all hypocritical. I am, you are, anyone reading this. So yeah, we create contradictions, what is your point? My point is that your philosophy makes no sense....

Killing myself would be just as pointless as just continuing to live, so I have opted not to do it (not to mention I do not suffer from severe suicidal depression). I have my own dreams, goals and aspirations. I also do enjoy the things life has to offer. You seem to have a very unnuanced perceptio...

Almost as hilarious as your ''Ok, boomer'' sense of humour (or lack thereof).

And that is your subjective opinion. I am 20 and I don't care if we all collectively die tomorrow or in the next 100/1000/whatever years. I did clarify in my OP that I think we should combat climate change and at least attempt to solve the issue, if that satisfies you (not that I am looking for you...

Don't have any and don't want any, why are you dragging the generic 'think of the children!' argument into this? It is going to be horrible for some future generation at some point, because nothing lasts forever, humanity will die out at some point. Someone will suffer regardless, when extinction s...

I agreed, because I indeed have such a sentiment. Serious question, why are you still alive if life is so pointless to you? Your life will eventually end, and going by your philosophy, that means that it has no value, and therefore ending it changes nothing. Why do you try to stay alive if you thin...

Possibly a late jump on the bandwagon, but felt like throwing in my own two cents: No, it is not disrespectful, as it is purely subjective. The fact that kids are forced to pledge the allegiance in some schools in the first place seems far more disrespectful to me, as it goes against basic freedom o...

I don't really care if the human race survives for the next 100 or 1000000 years, as I see no objective meaning in existence.

Then you should have been more clear in your previous comment, that your opinion on nihilism is a subjective one. It came across as a snarky 'know-it-all this is a fact' statement. Especially with the, dare I say cringeworthy and outdated, usage of the word ''edgy''. Ok boomer. https://media0.giphy...

Translation: I am unable to prove my arguments, therefore I shall resort to a ''witty'' comeback. They're by nature subjective. Obviously I can't prove them because they're based not on data, but on emotions. Much like nihilism itself. Then you should have been more clear in your previous comment, ...

Perhaps I worded myself too hastily and too poorly.

I simply wanted to elaborate that I find overpopulation to be an issue as well and ...

...Rant aside, besides the obvious idea that most people aren’t okay with being fucked over by the environment, my take on nihilism is why I think we should be doing more to confront it: there’s nothing but humans who can stop this from ruining our planet for generations to come.

That does not (in my eyes at east) really refute my statement, they are still, somehow, contributing. Whether in copious or small amounts, they still add collectively something into the overall causation.

OP certainly has an odd interpretation of what nihilism means. That's just closer to misanthropy IMO. To be fair I have seen many interpretations of the word 'nihilism' and it has been given different definitions.

As a rather radical nihilist, who doesn't care for the longevity of our planet nor for its living organisms, I was wondering if anyone else had a similar sentiment in regards to climate change?

Sure, the universe has no objective meaning, but as a personal preference, I prefer surviving over not surviving, and I (generally) don't like to see people suffer. Moreover, I want to have children one day, and I would hate for them to live in a world with widespread crop failure, increased risk o...
