About

These are the random thoughts of a Secular Humanist who believes that the world would be a better place if we regarded the perspective of humanity as a whole instead of merely focusing on our own concerns. Each of us was randomly thrust into this chaotic circumstance known as human existence, hence we are all in this together.

My interests vary, my views are my own, my posts random, and my appreciation that you consider following “A Humanist’s Perspective” genuine.

Just hoping to do my part to help make this random situation known as life a better experience, and hopefully to leave a better world to my children and to my children’s children.

  1. All of which leads me to the conclusion that I have no idea why I exist. Nor have I any idea why anyone else exists. I have furthermore come to conclude that it simply does not matter.

    I find this agreeable. I think what is important is that we exist and the next question then is how do we live

  2. “I only know that I love life and that it hurts whenever I stump my toe. And so I embrace life and try to remember to walk carefully in the dark.” This is a great mockery of existentialism. Answering their wanna-be deep questions. Great!
    (of course I’m a bit to harsh for existentialists, but what the heck, they have bigger problems to worry about)

  3. Re “why we exist” If you can, imagine that all of the people of the world disappeared and then reappeared one hour later. What happened to meaning during that hour? I think they all disappeared with the people. It is clear that people create meanings. If having a meaning is important to you, it is important that you go out and create one. Anyone who tells you that God (or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or …) has a plan and your life has meaning (which they can never tell you you about), they are trying to rob you of your only chance to create one for yourself. I, myself, am quite happy to live without meaning, but if it is important to you, don’t get cheated out of one.
