There is more than one definition of any word.

"Nihilism is the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated. It is often associated with extreme pessimism and a radical skepticism that condemns existence. A true nihilist would believe in nothing, have no loyalties, and no purpose other than, perhaps, an impulse to destroy."

It is more than a quibble about meaning.  I am pretty pessimistic and pretty skeptical and pretty judgmental ... so semi nihilist matches me.  Like demi-god.  I didn't say my charism was positive.

Whoever wrote that definition was clearly biased. Nihilism means believing that life has no inherent meaning, apart from what you give it. That's it. Associations with pessimism or a desire to "destroy" are irrelevant to the conversation.
"Oh, wearisome condition of humanity,
Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

You think they might be able to safely plant human brain genes in creationists in a decade or so?

LOOOL Missed that before. I love you.
