    The kittens and wild geese sound nice.

    Bee stings don't bother me anymore, though.
    Every moment of a life is a horrible tragedy, a slapstick comedy, dark nihilism, golden illumination, or nothing at all; depending on how we write the story we tell ourselves.

    No one is saying that there isn't some negativity in the world, but I don't think you should always see it through a cloudy lens. The world isn't a big negative place. There are a lot of good things in this world and you should remind yourself of that by looking at the positives.

    Because I knew nothing, nothing was beneath me.

    These are a few of my favorite things
    When the dog bites
    When the bee stings
    When I'm feeling sad
    I simply remember my favorite things
    And then I don't feel so bad

    There now, is that better?
    Listen here, if you want to be taken seriously, want us to think you're as learned as you present, then you need to act more mature. This is the definition of a bad faith discussion and I do not appreciate this dismissal of criticism just because I disagree with your puritanical misanthropic spiel about moral panic and fatalism. A forum is a place for discussion and sharing, it is not for you to whine and cry the moment someone responds in a way you don't like. I put in the effort to make a detailed response with my thoughts and supporting evidence, but I got this bull back, so why should anyone else listen to you? How is it a person supposedly with such a great scholarly background is entirely incapable of scholarly discussion? All I see in this thread is childish whining and conceited self-pity.

    Does the critical view of humanity’s nature and efforts so uniformly cast in the op also extend to whatever aspect of humanity created and maintains the worldview described in the op?
