I brought this discussion over from the Atheist board:estd wrote:I agree that life is meaningless. That's what makes it fun.enilkrennad replied:Dare i go here? To you, meaningless = fun?! So if something had "meaning" would it be boring, or do you believe that "meaning" doesn't exist at all?In normal day to day life, I operate as if there was meaning, but from a grand perspective, no, meaning does not exist at all. I do not think meaning is boring, just superfluous. I do not think meaningless = fun, I think that once you realize that it is all meaningless, you can see the fun in everything. Life really is absurd. Some of the funniest stuff is when people take it really seriously. I myself get hooked into the idea that stuff matters, that things are important. That's part of being human, but from time to time I step back and look at myself and realize I am just a dancing clown. It really is meaningless and fun that we get a chance to strut our stuff on this planet for a few decades. Others may see the same meaningless as hopelessly depressing. Twist that a bit and it becomes fun too.
