I often find myself questioning my own existance, the purpose (if there’s any) of life, why i’m here, how did all of this came to be, why I am the way I am, why do certain things like behaviors, tendencies, diseases, exist but I have to admit that the more I think the more questions arise.
As an Atheist, I believe in the randomness of things. I believe that through a long period of time we evolved from simple organisms into the complex beings we are today. It is incredible how we developed as a species. How our brains grew enough to allow us to dominate the earth, the skies and the oceans.
But with a more complex brain came the ability to rationalize the world around us. To observe the death of our fellow humans and realize that we will share the same fate. How from that moment of fear of our own mortality religions were created, how we fought each other over ideologies, food, reproduction partners, land, property and for simple pleasure. Would we be less miserable if we didn’t know we will die? Can other animals perceive this reality? Are we the only ones?
Sometimes I really get tired of the constant bullshit I see my species commit, not only against other animals and the earth, but against each other. It really becomes frustrating to the point where I ask “Why do fuck was I born into this shithole?”.
But then I think “It could be worst”, and I take a look at pictures like these and realize how lucky I am for numerous reasons. Even after having experienced horrible things, there are far worst events that could have happened.
Not a lot of people know I participate and contribute to this website and community, but I take an interest in knowing other opinions. And very often I come across people who think that those who follow this website are some sort of psychopathic freaks who enjoy watching others die, being tortured, etc. I find it amusing how most of these critics fail to realize that the very reason a lot of people visit this website is to distance themselves from ignorance and lies and accept a reality most try to ignore.
Death is not the worst thing that can happen to us. Living a life like these people is. Not everything on BestGore has to be related to death, blood and guts. By far, our aim is to show reality for what it is. So I made this post as a reflection of how lucky we are, and how much we should appreciate every second of our lives.
