I’m confused. You claim that I missed the point in the other thread, that life has no inherent value simply because we are not happy just existing. Happiness does not indicate value, nor does value indicate happiness.
Your argument that life has no inherent value is rather strange considering the fact that you admitted that we actively sustain life. Why would we actively sustain life it has no value to us? Why do animals actively run away from pursuing predators? Why do animals like Bee’s protect the hive? It is because, life does have inherent value. It’s value, though, is simply life itself.
If I’m misunderstanding you, please let me know why. You keep equating value with happiness; they are completely different things. Value is something that is important or has merit. There is nothing that is in the definition that implies one must be happy with it at all times. In that case, there is nothing on planet earth that has value and it thus, loses all meaning. Value would be a made-up word that has no bearing on reality.
