Its not nihilism; its not hedonism, its pragmatism.
Hey Stephen - says who on all of the above? I appreciate that that's your view and so be it. I disagree.
Have a look at my Philosophy and Personal Development
where I quote William Ralph Inge who said: "The object of studying philosophy is to know one’s own mind, not other people's".
The beauty of it is that we can each think and believe what we want and we can decide what has meaning for us.
Humans are arrogant. Eating sentient animals unnecessarily...
As for your point on our eating animals (I happen to be a vegetarian anyway), they are just as conscious and alive as vegetables and fruit. In the animal kingdom there are animals that do prey on and eat other animals. It's the natural order of things.
Just because you don't know what the purpose of life is, it doesn't meant there isn't one. It's possible that our human minds are limited in their capability to grasp existence beyond our self-centered arrogance.
