    Existentialists are the only sane people.

    What's the point in reproducing? To birth more people battling the same questions? Exist just to exist?

    I want answers. I need answers. I feel am nearly sure there are none and thus I see no peace for me.

    What/where are your answers?

    Give up this search for answers if at all possible, it will only leave you feeling empty.

    Existence for its own sake. Some people can't deal with that concept, but the people who can are the most at peace with life.

    You, as in individual, have the responsibility of giving your life meaning. That's what existentialism is, but many can't humble themselves to this realization. They have to attach special meaning, God ordained destiny.

    For someone who says that others aren't able to be humble enough to think the same way as you, what you said sounds very arrogant. Or do I misunderstand?

    I wouldn't give up looking for answers. When someone says they're working on finding the formula to explain the universe or something like that, so-called "intelligent" people don't say they're foolish, they say they're visionary and wish them well. So if it's ok to have faith enough that there are answers to the hugest physical questions that you look for those answers, why isn't it ok to have faith that there are answers to the the hugest existential questions? Especially when the answers to those are probably even more important to positive human development as a species than are the answers to the physical questions.

    If you need a god to find happiness, go for it. Some people need A/C while others can handle the weather just fine by themselves.
