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.

The end result of progressive philosophizing through nihilism for a means to enrich mind and existence - a conduit through which human society becomes harmonious with nature, disposing of excess life and current values and morals and replacing them with ones better fit to improve the quality of life for higher quality humans, and opposing racial integration through the realization that each race has specific unique qualities which better allow them to thrive in their respective parts of the Earth.
Nihilism allows the realization that modern life is flooded by useless social constructs, which don't really "exist".

a self-diferentially absurd way to live ones life. Followers of this philosophy believe in nothing, not even nihilism.
"there are absolutely no absolutes"

hmm.. that sounds about as stupid as nihilism..

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.

Very close related to anarchy but with a slight difference. Anarchy is the belief of no government, that the people can govern themselves. Nihilism is the same belief, except with anarchy people support eachother. In nihilism it is every man for himself.
Anarchy:
Mandy- So I heard Bob got shot.
Anthony- I know, Chris saved his life.

Nihilism:
Mandy- So I heard Chris got shot.
Anthony- I know, sucks to be him. He better watch himself. Chris left as soon as he saw it, he didnt want to get shot.

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!
