Atheism Is Philosophical Nihilism

Belief in nothing is easier than belief in a creator of what exists; that is, belief in nothing requires no thought at all. Belief in anything such as a Multiverse, for instance, requires work and creative thought. I stipulate that artists of graphic novels and “smurfs” requires some work, more than nothing certainly, yet smurfs are inadequate straw men for supporting an atheist belief in nothing. The multiverse and or Universe require work to understand very well, so far as human knowledge may understand. God is superior to the impossible set of all sets including itself such as Kurt Godel considered, and prior to all forms such as one may regard quantum physics and the energy thereof to fall into, before all Universes that would ever be, though a great paradox is that God is eternal and knows all things that would every be, including Universes- so one may wonder of Plotinus’ ideas about the One issuing the Intelligence and therefrom forms (in his Enneads), and if all that is like Godel’s set of all sets including itself. If it is, as analogous to Tegmark’s level 4 or 5 Multiverse that is pre-existent in all possible ways of being (with each thought moving mind to the appropriate place in another with that branch), one has something to think about. One has a Multiverse as a thought of God that has eternally existed with God- that is something rather than nothing. Philosophical work in great depth afforded advanced through contemplation of God rather than ‘smurfs or nothing.

Phenomenology and Time-Consciousness

 I like Matthew 22:33-46 about the absentee owner (God) and His Son. “Matthew 21:33-46 King James Version (KJV)
33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?”
