    1. Regardless of the existence of god or gods, there is objective ethics. Ethics is the study and promotion of the well being of sentient creatures.

      Although, it is nice to see existentialism portrayed correctly, instead of some moppey emo philosophy.

    2. I didn’t know existentialism was this, but this is exactly how I try to live. “Make your own and make it well?” I think I’ve said that before.

      I like this philosophy

      • More like:
        “make your own meaning. But some meanings are still pretty stupid.” and God is definitely one of them.

        I personally agree with a lot of what’s up there, except he forgot one part: empathy. Objective observation of the world should reveal that other people are prety much like yourself, and you are not intrinsically more important than them. So hurting them is exactly the same as if someone hurt you, and it sucks.

    4. Causation, the one certain and constant law of the universe.

      Determinism, free will is an illusion.

    5. It stops being simple/witty/apt/profound the minute I can point out 500 fucking flaws with it.

      If life is a blank canvas howcome my freedom/life/creativity is rudely interupted by society when my pallet of paint consists of rape murder and racism.

      • Facticity, and because those things are unethical

        • I don’t understand facticity having just googled it, I could use examples, but to use the term unethical immediatley defeats the term blank canvas IMO, it becomes a somewhat-blank canvas – this is where I get irritated by such terms, like freedom of speech (“but”..) and freedom…

          • Just because things have no inherent meaning, it does not mean you can ignore reality, in this specific case the reality of social interaction.

            Facts remain facts, no matter what meaning you ascribe to them.

            • I just have a personal problem with “profound” comments that just aren’t viable. My issue is specifically with absolute terms. Freedom is the ability to act/say etc without externally imposed restrictions. We are not free, life is not a blank canvas, the above statement is trying to be profound or at the least, insightful, but with a second of thought it is defeated.

              But I’ll drop it, it’s an endless argument, I’d essentially just be ranting about semantics – I just die inside when people think its clever or observational, as if its the obvious way to look at things.

              … but yea… I’ll go argue with/rant at the mirror, it’s just one of my odd brain buttons 🙂

            • Yeah. We are clearly not born tabula rasa. The idea is ridiculous. That said, I do think our attempts at philosophy rests in the way our brains develop/evolved. We’re born to learn; in the process we think some very silly things.
