I just reviewed my beliefs while debating @lol101 on the topic "light is not matter" [http://www.debate.org...] wherein I brought a K of the topic via. epistemological nihilism. After seeing through Munchhausen trilemma, I re-read what CorieMike wrote on adequate philosophical justification [http://www.debate.org...] and arguments for/against the concept of intuition itself. I just went through my own beliefs and then read Envisage's debate with Ajabi on epistemological nihilism [http://www.debate.org...], and it seems I'm an epistemic nihilist.

Then, after an interesting conversation on the philosophical structure of Mencian Confucianism that emerged from a discussion on civil unions with Diqiucun_Cunmin [http://www.debate.org...], it seems I'm a part-moral nihilist, part-moral objectivist, the latter merely because of Dawkins' descriptions of intrinsic "morality" within the *human* gene, but utilitarianism and the relativeness of morality (seemingly) has convinced me that that's not *objective* "right and wrong" principles, thus I'm a moral nihilist.

I've always been an existential nihilist because that seems the most sound philosophical position to me.

Thus, it seems I'm a nihilist in almost every philosophical issue.

I'd be carefull to take Dawkins' stance on any semi-philosophical issue.
Moreover evolution might explain dispositions to act in a certain way, but not objective value. Genes are in the end not the ultimate determinator of personality.

but utilitarianism and the relativeness of morality (seemingly) has convinced me that that's not *objective* "right and wrong" principles, thus I'm a moral nihilist.
Utilitarianism is not relativism. On the contrary it is as objective as it gets.

That's why I'm a moral nihilist.

First, utilitarianism maybe subjective. Secondly, fix'd.

How so?

Secondly, fix'd.
