Part II Directions: For one of the statements below, respond by writing a Deep Thoughts response of 100 words or more as to why you have the belief you do. Then comment on at least two other postings.
Existence is absurd and true meaning in life is impossible.
Day to day existence is filled with anxiety and fear.
I can only obtain true meaning in life after I have reached a state of nothingness.
Whether or not God exists is irrelevant because of free will.
Political philosophies, religious dogma, societal beliefs are irrelevant to me and do not define me.
The idea that I am born into a particular time, place, family, and economic environment is absurd.
When I am born, I am undefined without any prior essence or preconceived personality or soul.
Ultimately, I am alone in this world, alienated from everything that attempts to define me.
In life, I must make choices regardless of what’s best for others. I can only choose what’s best for me.
