    ...Now, if it were cheap fake chocolate, sure... that's hedonism... sorta like drinking Maddog out of a paper bag on the street.
    Hey! Some of us like the simple pleasures. *comforts and reassures collection of Reece's, Almond Joys, Hersey's with Almonds, Peanut M&Ms, and Twix bars*
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

If the answer does not lie in our impact on others, there would only be one of us here.
    I love it! excellent point!

    i dont think life has an especially deep or meaningful purpose, and i do not think it is necessarily pointless. it is human nature to cling to resolute black and white answers, regardless of their accuracy.

    i think that life is about the last thing anyone would guess... something simple. that is, the point of life is to live.

    "when life is known to be pointless" <---- I don't think anyone can come to that resolution absolutely, and I think that is what keeps people going.

    Hard to say what goes through a person's mind when they've decided to kill them self and what led to it. I would think life frustrations, feelings of hopelessness and clinical depression would be the biggest factors and they can still exist even if you don't think life is "pointless." I'm referring to pointless as meaning no God, no possibilities of things we don't understand that would be of significance to giving more meaning and explaining a purpose to human life.

    Well, I was teasing you. I wrote on what I think of it in an earlier post.
