i can't take it how do you deal with the fact that we're all nothing but a dot in the universe?
>there are literally hundreds and hundreds of stars
>there are literally hundreds and hundreds of stars
We are just a spec in the universe but this can have positive implications as our planet is rare. The two are meaningless convulsions that reduce self awareness and universe breaking mind. At most you'd look at it as a map, not a trap.
prove our planet is rare. you literally can't. even the closest planets to us are too far away to ever realistically survey and yet you are so confident that in a universe orders of magnitude orders of magnitude bigger than we can even see there is so little life. It doesn't make any sense.
You're a literal asiatic, don't respond to me again.
Exactly, you can't.
>prove our planet is rare
It's easy to find planets, but it's hard to find one like ours. There you go, proved it.
What if it's a 50% chance of a planet being like ours and the area around us just HAPPENS to be some place that falls out of the norm? What if it's 99% chance and we were extremely unlucky? Unless we have all the information, we can't say shit.
Why would you think that? It's stupid bro

Explain why existence manifests in the first place, then, by your logic nothing should exist
this has nothing to do with what I am talking about, which is posted here
my consciousness didn't choose shit, and it's temporally separated from everybody else's consciousness anyway since there's no basis for assuming that everyone's consciousness exists at the same time and physics strongly implies otherwise. we're all alone in this vast empty universe
Everything is a dot in the Universe. In that case, you actually share something in common with everything else.
See anon, rather than being alone, you have a whole Universe of frens!
This isn't the HECKIN' EPIC GOTCHA MOMENT you think it is. The whole point of Thus Spake Zarathusra is that Nietzsche was lamenting the fall of Christianity, and pondered what sort of secular moral code would replace it. He eventually came to the conclusion that without a hard, objective moral code, society would descend into materialism and hedonism.
Read a book, retard.
Why do you care about stars at all? They have nothing to do with you, they aren't your problem.
have you tried talking about yourself on social media?
anything beyond our solar system does not exist in any meaningful way. it's just a neat little thing that is out there but which you will never interact with or be affected by. hell anything beyond Earth might aswell not exist for 99% of humanity since they will never interact with it
This is a
But in general it gives me great comfort that all of my problems are truly minuscule and unimportant in the grand scheme of things. Imagining the vastness of the universe and you in it as a tiny speck is a great Stoic meditation by the way.
Why would it matter if you're comparatively a speck of dust or half the universe? You're still you
are literally hundreds and hundreds of stars
Yet none of those dots has any importance whatsoever. A billion stars could blow up in supernovae, six gorillion space israelites could die in a supercaust, and I would not even know any of it happened. So why should they make me feel insignificant? They're the insignificant ones. They're the ones who are so insignificant and meaningless that not only would I not care about their death and destruction, but I literally would not even notice it happening.
Lol no, try thousands and thousands
Let's not get carried away.
At least 4
if you actually thought you were nothing but *insert reddit meme here*
then you wouldn't tell me what I am
stick to talking about yourself and avoid lumping me into your existential nihilism
the universe is a resource, it's a good thing it's so large

>then we showed up for no apparent reason
Atheists really believe this. The garden of Eden with a talking snake and an apple made of wisdom and sin makes about as much sense as the secular origin story.
If you ask me, just don't worry too much about it. Appreciate any beauty you can find and try to contribute more of it to the world before you die. Enjoy.

Oh yes, that's a way better explanation /s
Neither of your explanations make sense. There are infinite possiblities we may have not thought up yet. Be agnostic.
If you think that you can only choose between atheism and entry level, basic bitch Christianity...that sucks.
Agnosticism is reasonable, but it's also just giving up. Better to be some sort of deist, IMO. The idea that gods care about us is pretty recent. Older gods are pretty much just personifications of natural forces, like wind, birth, or earthquakes. Who really knows the truth, though? Not me.
>God created a giant universe
>Earth is part of God's creation
>He specifically picked Earth as our home, for some reason
>He left us an entire fuckhuge universe to explore and conquer, once we become civilised and intelligent enough to do so
Isn't creation beautiful? God is like a kind and caring father - he set us a challenge that drives us to develop ourselves as a society, and it's up to us to make use of the rest of the cosmos one day.
>>no time, no space, no matter
>>then everything showed up at a single point
No. Read about the big bang theory, that's not how it works. The theory doesn't say the universe magically appeared out of nowhere. The theory starts with the universe as an extremely dense object less than the size of an atom, no assumptions are made about why it's there or how it's there or what happened before it was there
How is that any more sensible or reasonable than any other religious creation story, that are usually little more than "god sneezed one time and we are the snot" or some shit like that. You're still saying that everything came from nothing for unknown reasons and you don't know why. Face it, that's just as much of a faith based belief as any of the other stories/explanations
Ockam's razor. It's far more likely that the universe came about through the most simple process enabling this possible, than it is that some namefag god created it exactly as told in some desert book
ok, how did god come into existence? The religious story only pushes the question back from "where did we come from" to "where did god come from". it's totally useless.

the xbox was created in 2001, with 1997 being the actual year of the term "x-box" or more specifically "spot box" or "this spot contains the ideal box"
Nigga, would your life be more meaningful if you were ten times taller? Would our planet or our actions be more important if there were only 30 stars instead of billions? Would your social actions and internal thoughts mean more if this was the only solar system in the universe?
I think not.
I just read the Last question by Isaac Asimov again
Earth is flat and stationary with a dome. Stars are a complete meme.
This is more of a philosophical question but if you would like some immediate relief
>you are the center of the mandala
We might as well be a universe of a single planet.
We're not going anywhere anytime soon.
>i can't take it how do you deal with the fact that we're all nothing but a dot in the universe?
I don't think about it, you sound like a child chimping out about hearing that the sun will explode in 10 billion years
>how do you deal with the fact...
Find a loving girl and have sex with her without a condom
Then you catch gonorrhea because she lied about being a virgin, your erections become soft and cumming hurts. You hating her and break up, become bitter, hateful and terminally online autist
Who cares? This doesn't affect your life in any way, shape, or form. As long as you can make a living and support your family here on Earth, you don't have to worry about the black abyss of space.
Did they put hundreds of little ones on my forehead?
All but one of them are just shitholes
I wouldnt worry about it.
>there are tens, if not hundreds, of bones in your body

how am i even able to fukcljing talk and think and ask fucksjdflking questions like this one. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh
As long as I am superior to lesser dots, I am happy.
our monkey brains do a pretty good job of keeping the complete and utter insanity that is existence at bay.
