'The ethical theory that there can be no true morality as there can not logically be any absolute scale within the fundamental laws of the universe with which to measure them'
Average person: it is morally good to save a child's life
Nihilist: it is neither good nor bad to save the child's life according to nihilism
Average person II: It is morally good to stick a baby in a blender according to nihilism
Nihilist: it is neither good nor bad to blend a baby

A theory that life is without purpose, many things deconstruct to this after continuous questioning of why. From this, we realise value does not exist (without purpose it can't have extrinsic value)
Ethics and Morals become non existent and are merely thought to be invented by man for man to control man even though he has no reason to be controlled.

Also, Nihilists don't believe in anything. (Thoughts and ideas are not beliefs)
Prole1 "Don't do that, it's evil and wrong."
Nihilist "why is it? men have created morals and ethics not realising they are useless, we are without purpose. Nihilism makes you're ideas invalid"

Prole2 "We need to care for our planet."
Nihilist "Why? it has no value."

The philosophy that life, the universe, and existence are essentially pointless. all nihilists are atheists, but not all atheists are nihilists.

In comparison to atheism which is to not believe in God or religion, nihilism is to believe in nothing. Not even pizza!
Person: Hey want to go get some pizza at the local dinner?
Nihilism person: What is the point of pizza when there is no point to existence, past, present, or future?
Person: Dude you really need to get laid.
Nihilism person: That's just it I have been laid but what's the point in that when no one can find true meaning to ANYTHING!

An extension of existentialism. It is the belief that that life is pain and suffering and hold no point. There are few Nihilists around, as they tend to find no reason to be anymore.
Person 1: I think I'm just going to crawl in a corner and die....
Person 2: Man! please don't say you been reading up on nihilism. It's bad for your brain.

The absolute name invented to cover up one's inability to find meaning or self-worth. It's absolute character offers a pseudo-certainty in so far as it can never change. Thus by declaring myself to believe in nothing I have at last found an absolute to believe in and thus confer upon myself a permanent identity in the face of death. Nihlists like atheists are really somebody, unaware of the fact that he who believes in nothing actually believes in something.
A Hollywood film producer who makes money out of selling death and destruction to the gullible. In their marble-clad mansions they discuss nihilism between drinks and dream of Oscars and similar votive offerings to their superior 'insight.' Their passing gifts to the world are suffering, delusions and fear of what men can become when they cease to believe in Something Bigger than their own greed and stupidity.
