What is the point in life?

Beed1984

What is the point in anything? I ask myself this as I suffer from depression but even on good days I wonder this, as I have never wanted a "normal" life, to have children or get married etc. I just don't know why... No religious answers please....

What Good Are Humans?

The_Scapegoat_bleats

(I am con/against - human existance) We, being humans, have no real point to be on Earth. We've done nothing but destroy since we began evolving into the modern-day humans we are. Polluting, hunting animals into extinction and cutting down their natural habitats, reshaping land for only our selfish benifit. Many of those who are aware of these things happening do nothing to try and slow or reverse their effects, resulting in deaths of animals andhumans, as well as plant life.All first-worlders c...

Victimless crimes are not crimes at all.

Hello all. My premise is that victimless crimes are not crimes at all. A victimless crime is an action that is currently criminal, but one that harms no one other than the individual(s) willingly participating in said activity. Examples of such crimes are drug use, prostitution, and suicide. Individuals are still held accountable for subsequent actions that interfere with the autonomy of others, similar to current laws that apply to persons under the influence of alcohol. I look forward to...

Are any of us real?

apaches
Objective_Being

We have lived life asuming we are real, asuming we exsist in this state. But can you prove that we do? How do you know that this, any of this is real at all. Perhaps it does perhaps it does not. The fact of the matter is that you can't just jump into some one else's body and see what they see. And you can't just know. Have you ever stopped to wonder about that? Really taken the time to think about it? The question should be are we alone? It should be am I alone. Becuse I have no proof that you a...

Trolling is pointless.

First of all, what is the point of trying to cause a fight online? Also, purposefully hurting someone's feelings is a bad thing to do. Trolling is also, by definition, a form of cyberbullying....

There isn't really any moral difference between taking and not giving.

Mantizah

Let's start off with a brief example of what I'm talking about. A man with a handful of spare change walks by a donation box, but decides not to donate. Now imagine instead a man walking by empty-handed, and stealing a handful of change. Has either done more wrong than the other? Going off only what can be inferred directly from the story, I don't think so. Either way, the box has a few dollars less than it could have. What do you think?...

There are NO absolutes ethically.

aburk903
Benshapiro

My premise is simple and my introductory statement will be short. There are NO absolutes ethically. The entire world of ethics revolves around a principle that I call "Utilitarian Situational Rights". This proposed theory of "right and wrong" takes the useful elements of the three prominent ethical theories in the following manner. 1.) Utilitarian- Doing the greatest good for the greatest number. 2.) Situational- What is the moral/ethical course of action is determined entirely based upon the gi...
