What a sad and depressing way to look at Life. How miserable must one be to see all around us as meaningless, drab, oppressive even. That we can only have meaning in fairy tales, myths, fantastic comic book tales of super beings with unimaginable powers. 


To look in the mirror every morning and see only abject failure, impending death, waste, loss, depravity.


How UNhappy must these believers be to NEED to create and believe in these fantasies.


Sad.




Well said, Paladinsf!
