Honesty

Reading the definition of nihilism on Wikipedia recently it really struck me that it is just the logical outcome of modern western belief.

I would be horrified at the suggestion that one should believe in God because everything would be better that way.  My personal journey was via nihilism, I guess.

I really do prefer to believe that which is true / real,  if possible.

My feeling is that any honest person who does not believe in God has to become a nihilist. When they get around to thinking about it.

What else?
