RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Nihilism? What the fuck?

Ok, I think a lot. Mostly because my preference of being solitary. Well not so much since I've discovered the internet..... but what ever.
Ever since I was in 3ed grade, and my friend Rachel introduced me to Christianity. I've questioned if god does or does not exist. (I always had very terrible faith Rolleyes BAD CHRISTIAN!) Laugh Oh well, then I finally came to the conclusion that god does not exist (My belief) around 6th/7th grade.
Well, religion as an example of my thinking, I came up with this around 4th grade:
What came first, the chicken or the egg? Theory... kinda
Ok, it takes on thing to create another.

From a religious point of view:
God created us, who created god?
Who created god's creator?
Who created god's creator's creator?
so on, so forth.
It would go on for an eternity.
Except there's no such thing as an eternity.
There is no forever.
(Which also goes for space, space is not eternal, the black abyss must end somewhere. But what fills the space after that? Nothing? Impossible. There's no such thing as nothing. (In this case) ...maybe. I dunno
Well back to said subject.

A non-religious perspective:
evolution.
It had to start somewhere, before we evolved from apes.
Before the Earth
Before the shit that led to the construction of Earth.
Before that.
And that.
And that.
For eternity.
Except there's no such thing as eternity.
So there lies the problem.
It had to start somewhere.... and yet again it couldn't of.

My conclusion:
It is impossible that we are here.

....except for the fact that we ARE here. I'm sitting here right now at 2:57 a.m. typing this.... whatever.
You're sitting where ever you are, reading this.
Somewhere there's someone starving, there's some one in great emotional pain
...and everywhere there's someone, or something dieing

So, new conclusion:
It's impossible that we exist, except we have some how defied logic, and we exist.

Well you could say we were created by [insert deity, reason... whatever] but that interferes with the whole
"It takes one thing to create another" ....thing.

Ok, my ultimate conclusion:
We do not exist.
Wtf



What ever, I'm rambling, sorry....

Hey, I actually understood that, and usually I'm a complete dumbass...
Hm, what if we're just someone elses dream? Or what if this is my dream and none of actually exist, but I do? What if we're just characters in someone's book, who live on in the author's mind after the book ends?

Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

... hang on, you're telling me i'm not real? ... i'm not ... real? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I WANNA BE REAL!!!

Quote:Normally I'd scream and say that it hurt my brain....

Normally I would too, except for some odd reason it wasn't all that painful. Maybe because the whole concept of me not actually existing is somewhat amusing. But then, how can it be funny, if I don't exist, I can't have a sense of humour either, right? But if we don't exist, and nobody made anything, then nothing exists, and then... like... ok now this IS starting to hurt my brain. I'M TYPING!!! ... I think? I have a keyboard? yes, i do... but... there is no spoon, i mean, keyboard... errr...

My personal Ultimate Conclusion:
I can't explain everything. And I don't care! :biggrin: I'll just work on what I CAN explain, and leave the other stuff to ... beings with bigger brains? Or whatever. Giggle

Yes there is. Space is infinite but has finite dimensions.

Quote:It had to start somewhere, before we evolved from apes.
It started on earth, billions of years ago. Evolution started when the first lifeform on earth was randomly created in a sea of protein.

From my point of view:
The universe has not existed forever and it will end. But Brahman has existed forever and will never end. The universe will be reborn and die an infinite amount of times but the spirit world never will.

That there is no such thing as eternity/forever
Wouldn't it be that it's scientifically impossible?

Explain to me why eternity is impossible. There is no scientific reason why eternity is impossible.

Explain your logic. Just saying "it's impossible" without explaining why doesn't mean anything. Give me a reason!

Feelings don't have reasons.
Ok some of them do, but this one down't.
Think of it as defining 'the' or 'a' (Or any word that you can use, but not really define...on your own, dictionary answers don't count)
But is just IS, there doesn't HAVE to be a reason.
Think outside the box for a minute....
