>>571718 I skipped the first part and just jumped randomly. But yea putting Nietzsche as the face of nihilism is as retarded as putting Marx as the face of capitalism. In fact, it's more retarded. It's like putting Rand as the face of communism.
>>571628 Atheist Materialism necessarily leads to Stark Nihilism and the abject belief in uncertainty of all things.
Thus the "Nothingness" is their true form, thus when faced with themselves, they collapse all rationale and emotion fills the void that is left.
Materialism is always atheistic in nature, though not all atheists are materialists, most are though because atheism has ceased to be the quiet topic in the higher echelons of intellectual circles and has become some what of a social movement.
Idiots ascribe themselves to atheism in order to seem "enlightened" or "open-minded".
Some demographics show us how most atheism is just a stage in most people, this isn't a commentary on atheism itself but rather those who participate in the belief err lack thereof.
I would recommend you examine WLC's work on Atheism, sure he's a bit biased but he is accurate for the most part in his diagnosis of the current situation.

Maybe you are afraid of yourself, or see yourself as nothing. I am pretty comfortable with myself, gods or no gods.
One day you talk about faith and how leaps in rationale must be made, the next you discredit atheists has the ones without it. Do you truly believe that adult atheists have an emotional or social stake in being atheists?
I'm not in high school, and nobody in my office knows or cares about what I believe in or don't believe in. I could be a fucking Wiccan for all they care. Believe me friend, my reasons for being atheist have very little do with emotion. Indeed, emotionally I would like to believe, like to give in, so that I could hope for an afterlife.
But it's futile. The logical and rational chains linking what we can see in corporeality to your or anyone's God just aren't there. This is of course, where the concept of faith comes in. Would you call faith rational?
Sad thing is, I type all this and all I am gonna get is fedora reaction images and le reddit memes.
