    This life isn’t meant to be cherished. It is meant to be destroyed. If anything or anyone messes with me and gives me problems, then they will be destroyed. Since this life has given me the greatest problem of all which is eternal death rather than what I absolutely need and solely value in life which is an eternal blissful life, then this life is more than worthy of being destroyed. Eternal death is the ultimate abomination and the ultimate sin against me. It is the ultimate insult, mockery, and demeaning of my personal value and worth as a human being since it is no different than saying to me:

    “Here, you have this beautiful life to live for a while. But too bad, it is only here for a short time and I am going to put you forever in the grave. You are nothing more than a biological organism that will live and just forever be waste and decayed in the end. You are not an immortal soul. You are just here to live and forever die. You are nothing more than a mere biological process of life. Sure, you can do good deeds in this life and other important things. But you are still nothing more than a mere biological process of life that will just live and forever die one day.”

    Anything or anyone that demeans my personal value and worth like this needs to be destroyed. Therefore, this life was better off having been destroyed to begin with. Me living in eternal bliss is the #1 thing to me in life. NEVER take this away from me. Anyone who does will be in serious trouble.

    This is all I have and I cannot be happy and find meaning in my life without this. The idea of me forever dying is the worst thing to me that not only makes my life miserable and meaningless, but also induces a psychotic destructive rage since my importance as a human being is being demeaned by this very fact of life.

    I absolutely cannot stand it when not only my feelings of happiness are taken away, but also me living forever happy. Me living forever happy is all that matters to me and anything or anyone that goes against this will be destroyed. I will become violent to show you just how serious I am when I say that a life that I can have all to myself to enjoy and be happy in for all eternity (an eternal blissful life) is all that matters to me and is all that brings my life joy and meaning.

    I'm not sure I'm completely following here. Do you feel like you are living an eternal blissful life and are ready to protect the notion with some psychotic rage, or due to the title of your thread, someone already told you that and you're about to pull out the ninja swords and make headlines?

    I have lost my belief in the eternal blissful afterlife. So I no longer think that I will live that life which is the only life to me that brings me joy and meaning. This is what has driven me to a rage.

    I too lost my faith but at no point did I feel like hurting someone. To me life became even more precious knowing that I wasn't going to be able to live an eternal life. Cherish the life you have left and the life of those around you. Pity those that take it for granted. If you feel like hurting people or yourself, talk to someone that can help. Call a doctor, something, anything!

    There are many people who do not believe in any afterlife at all. Many of whom lead perfectly happy lives and feel productive and fulfilled. Have you not spoken to any? Obviously it is possible to feel content with life while not believing in an afterlife. Speak to others.

    To me, the very fact that all we are is some biological process of life that will live and just forever die one day makes us all inferior and makes this life inferior as well and worthy of being destroyed. It doesn't matter who you are as a person and what deeds you have done for the world, the very fact that you are just going to forever die one day makes you inferior.

    Inferior to what? What is your basis for comparison? What do you know exists that, by comparison, we are automatically inferior to because we die?

    I could easily just say one is inferior as a means of looking down upon them. But as for a comparison, you would all be inferior compared to if you were not just mere biology and were eternal souls that could live on forever.

    No. This life is meant to be LIVED. You are still alive, right? Your life has value to yourself and others. Stop worrying about crap you can't do anything about, and follow your dreams.

    Forever die? Then how does life even start if you determined it's impossible to live ? ?

    That would nullify your birth outright but it certainly happened.

    Forever is definitely out of the equation.

    If you say one is inferior to look down upon them then you take yourself as superior. Now, if you don't believe we are eternal souls, you don't believe eternal souls exist, then how are we inferior? Inferior to what exactly? You claim us inferior but for us to be inferior there must be something superior. What is there that is superior that exists above us if eternal souls do not exist? You compare us to something which you do not even believe exists? Might as well compare us to anything you don't believe in. Are we inferior to unicorns? Hobbits? The Loch Ness monster? Just what is so bad about biological life that makes it inferior and inferior to what?

    The inevitable reaction to birth is death. But if you can actually do something to benefit other living beings without expectations, that's real bliss.
    If you simply continue to engage in materialism, gradually your greed and the anger related to it will rise.

    Life is a ride, so enjoy it, when its time to go then let it go, there's nothing more to it than that, also realize that everyone else is trying to enjoy their life just as much as you..

    It doesn't matter that the concept of eternal souls does not exist. You are still inferior to this concept anyway. It doesn't matter to me that you are not as strong as, for example, Superman who is a fictional character and it doesn't matter that you can't fly around like magical fairies. Not being these things is not in any way demeaning. But what does matter to me is a person. No human being should just forever be wasted away like they are nothing more than a biological process. That is the worst demeaning thing to me.

    Why do you think we have religious beliefs out there which believe in the eternal soul? It is because they see human beings as eternal souls. Something more than mere biological processes. To them (and me as well) it would be utterly demeaning for us to just simply be biological processes that just live and forever die. For example, go and ask any religious believer what they would think if we were truly nothing more than biological processes that just live and forever die. They will tell you that this would be the worst thing and that it would be utterly demeaning of a human being's value and worth.

    If that were true life would have never popped up in the first place if it wasn't meant to be.
    Thats LHP sentiment, makes sense but I don't agree with it.
    Thats a bit of a conundrum. I am sure nobody will disagree suffering exists but not without life and awareness existing first.
    You know I find it odd but your sentiment hear sounds like that of the biblical god. How odd, your saying you've lost faith but agree with the god of the bible.

    Thats one of the cornerstones of the christain faith that we are worthless worthy of being destroyed and undeserving of salvation via crhist.
    This is why people have faith because we need it. How do you know reincarnation isnt real or Nirvana isn't real? The bible version of pearly gates not existing still leaves a lot open to possibilities after death. And I am pretty sure nobody has been able to prove what happens after we die.
    Then why destroy your faith. They call that throwing the baby out with the bath water.

    You call this greed. No, it is a completely different situation. This is not like a situation where I want some fancy car or mansion. This is me as a human being we're talking here. This is my own existence as a human being we are talking here. So for that to be tossed and forever thrown away as though I am just some biological process here to live and just remain dead in the end is the most demeaning thing. It is utterly demeaning of my personal value and worth as a human being.

    Some would argue that a lack of eternal life makes a short mortal life that much more precious and important. That an immortal soul, a life that goes on forever, cheapens the life we live now. For how important is what we do in this blink of time we are alive if we go on forever anyway?

    I understand what you are saying, but this does not work for me. It does not make my life happy or more meaningful at all. To me, an eternal blissful life would be the greatest meaningful and joyful life since I get to be happy forever, enjoy the beauty of life forever, and have it all to myself forever without worrying about death or any form of suffering in my life anymore.
