The only reason I have a desire to prevent my opponent from scoring a touchdown is because I can play or am playing football.

He talks about the illusion of purpose and meaning of life The wntinatalist is an call for human being to stop procreating in order to end the endless suffering that is life as by extinction no one will be left to suffer.

If they played one-legged antinatlaist they might construct the same analogy. Unless you finally have some evidence beyond your CDs that fell over to look like the Antinatalits
