I always viewed existential nihilism as not giving yourself a purpose but accepting that there is no purpose, nothing matters, and there is no use in getting a purpose. it's a very sad outlook on life if that is its true meaning.

no opinion on moral theories, they all seem lacking and I feel following your gut/conscience is the best theory, although not a fun one to discuss lol.

I do agree with existential nihilism, where every person must give himself his own purpose, but I'm talking more about morality that reason for existing

it is both true and false. even if there is no greater underlying purpose... you can give yourself a purpose. on the grand scale nihilism maybe true, but on the personal scale it is nonsense.

proof: a person without purpose is very rare.
