I have studied a bit of philosophy in my time. This type of nihilism seemed to me to be a "look how cool-cynical I am" position. It seemed lazy to me too; proponents don't have to prove anything, just demand that others prove competing theories correct.
That's how I feel about the subject in philosophical banter anyway. Moral nihilism as a guiding principle in real life is degenerate.
I suspect those who claim to believe such crap only believe it when they aren't on the receiving end of what they would consider degenerate behavior.
As a society if you can't protect your elderly , women , and children the what does that say ?
Other things I've gathered from this ........
Have we become so enamored with sports that we put that in front of all things ?
It's funny that some folks talk about Sandusky being gay . He wasn't gay he was a pedophile , a child rapist . It doesn't make a guy who rapes a 10 year old girl straight either .
I've read where Sandusky is the most dangerous type of pedophile . The nice guy who goes in and gains confidence in the family or child and then abuses them . It makes me start thinking about my kids and was someone trying to get his foot in the door . That's what stuff like this does it makes you wonder . Having said that , any grown man coming around my house showering my kids with gifts and such would have set off alarms . I've always thought that women are the more pateral ones and have been leery of males who want to get close to other peoples kids .
