Degenerate desecration of sacred symbols.

Blasphemy is easily compatible with nihilism.

Doesn't mean it should be supported.

why not?

symbols are not real life after all. I have more respect for a tree than for the representation of Jesus as a symbol.

I don't like degenerate art, regardless of whether it's serious or satirical.

I am convinced the pagan runes are far more meaningful in their anti-Christianity message than mocking Jesus pictures are.

Looks like a Soviet mockery.

Also, the sinister vibe of evil, thanks to nazis.

You consider the nazis to be evil?

To one with serenity, life without a wallet is indistinguishable with one with a wallet.

No it doesn't. How does handing your wallet over negate a robbery?

Because it wasn't taken, it was given.

Has anyone ever considered that Jesus might have been saying this:
When somebody roughs you up (by slapping your cheek), don't go running off crying, but rather be unmoved by it (by offering the other one).
i.e: What a pussy! Is that the best you got?

The full quote goes like this:

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[h] 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, spread to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."

So no, I never considered it heroic or manly. Jesus was telling people to act like doormats.

If done from a position of serenity, this approach negates "evil". It doesn't oppose it per se, it simply denies it a space to exist upon you. How many people are capable of it is another question. Nietzsche wrote "there was only ever one Christian, and he died on the cross", and I'm not sure he even got that one right...

Anyone caught with child porn should be executed.

We are speaking of nihilism from an outside perspective

Who's "we"?

Quote
and we make judgments on values and morals. To us, a nihilist will do things that we find morally objectionable, even if they do not comprehend that judgment.

I don't make judgments on morals. In fact I find morality to be meaningless because it assumes a type of "goodness" or "evilness" present within actions.

Values can be judged and I see no reason why a nihilist would not do so. He simply realizes that they are based on preference.

I don't think Marxists and humanists are "evil". I simply acknowledge that their preferences are in opposition to mine and the type of civilization I want to inhabit.

Quote
So, we can say that because a nihilist is not good, he must be evil, because as darkness is absence of light, evil is absence of good, and isn't necessarily (or rarely ever, actually) the choice of the individual for the sake of committing evil.

You could say he's beyond good and evil.

Probably the first time I've seen a reference to Futurama on this forum.

I've never been able to see why the universe needs a creator. Infinite regression and all that.

I prefer to think of it as eternal.
