" 'Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.' "
--Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

Finding The Point

I suppose one risk of over-rationalizing death is failing to appreciate life. When you manage to stop fearing the idea of dying, you had better make damn sure you appreciate why you're living- doubly so if you're a skeptic without a Deity telling you taking your own life is wrong.

I can't tell you why life is worth living, or what the point of life is, though I suspect part of the point is to figure out what the point is. I do think life is better than death because it's interesting; that alone is a start of a reason to keep dancing.
