We’ve re-dedicated this site to nihilism because there are no credible resources for nihilism on the internet.
Most people think of nihilism as fatalism, or the belief that no beliefs, values, communications or gods can exist.
We have a simpler definition:
Nihilism is the perception that no inherent value exists.
We can create values, beliefs, even gods, if they symbolize the reality that’s Out There waiting to be discovered. What we won’t do is claim that we got these ideas from a direct line to the one holy truth, whether that truth is a dualistic God, or simply the notion that human life is sacred.
We have liberated ourselves from your outdated notion that because humans choose to believe we are special, that we are; also from the insane notion that God talks to us directly. Neither notion makes sense. There is a reality; one reality. We perceive this one reality and adapt to it like any other species. Any other idea is metaphysical voodoo and we have thrown it out.
Humans are not special. That murder, oppression, hatred, cannibalism, sodomy and eugenics are “bad” and being nice to people is good — these are hateful illusions. These are means that humans use to control one another. Whether you say “God told us this” or “all people are equal,” both are illusions of inherency. We have broken free from that illusion and instead see a reality to adapt to.
We are free. You, addicted to control, have enslaved yourself. You can cut yourself free any minute that you choose to do so, but all but a handful of you will choose to remain enslaved.
Welcome to the Center for Nihilism and Nihilist Studies. Enjoy your stay.
