An Occasional Post- Meaning & Ethics
Saw this meme with a picture of the cosmos saying "No Life Matters" on an atheist page. The funny thing was the comments, where people stretch to try to still justify being moral. They were not impressive attempts. Look, if life doesn't matter, it doesn't matter. Emotions are judgments of VALUE. In a valueless universe, they mean nothing. Reason is SUPPOSED to keep us from acting crazy. To say on the one hand that persons are no more valuable than rocks and yet we should treat them as if they are of inestimable value is hypocrisy and counseling schizophrenia. You can't have it both ways. A consistent reason in a meaningless universe includes a practical reason based on meaninglessness. Anything else is cowardice and contradiction.
