We are no-thing experiencing some-thing - prove it.
If you found this out by looking in a mirror, I would suggest looking again because I am without a doubt responding to something that thinks, and that
something is you.
"life appears in peace" If you knew the processes which had to happen in order for life to start you would understand it was anything but peaceful, to
have life you have to have a universe, to have that we needed a cataclysmic event which is still in motion today.
We evolved though natural selection a rather nasty process when you look at it, the weak die, the strong continue. We are what we are because we rose
to the top of the food chain and chowed down on our 'cooked' prize kills in the process.
In fact cooking the food is arguably why we evolved to have the brain we have, the heating process allowed the food to be more quickly broken down
creating excess energy which theoretically allowed the brain to develop further. As we evolved we killed our competition by becoming smarter than
them, including other hominids.
Our brains - the thing allowing you come up with your 'no-thing' pseudo science - are anything but structured and harmonious.
Imagine (if you can) a tent, that represents the lower brain - Our foundations.
Now in this point in our evolution that tent is a mansion, only... the tent is still there, we have built our mansion over the tent and connected to
the tent bit by bit with no real structure, nothing has been destroyed only added on to.
I hope we are at a state now where can can exist without destruction, it is a choice... A thinking choice made by you.
Everything you said has no scientific merit.
What has your new found understanding done for you really, you will not be sad when your parents die? How will you provide for your family and
continue the species with this understanding? How will your so called understanding do anything?
Lets say I discover the same, what do I do now? let the world rot while i exist in my bubble of 'knowing' myself?
I would rather suffer with the rest and try and make a difference.
I post an awful lot more than you answer by the way, and not addressing the things I have raised is actually a bit ignorant.

A LOT of what Itisnowagain says makes sense...

Something making sense doesn't make it true...
It makes sense to me which is why I can dispute it, perfect sense, but it is not correct. Don't misunderstand sense and truth, it use to make sense to
people we were the center of the universe, but that wasn't true.
Tell me do you see sense in what I am saying?
Also you can't post a poem as evidence, poems deal with inner feelings and emotions, I am not saying that he can't feel that way, you can feel a lot
of ways rightly or wrongly. You might get angry over something trivial, it does not make the emotion correct.

Just want to add, it is easier to understand a belief than it is to work out the truth using science, anyone can believe anything, they can convince
themselves of it, but it takes more effort to actually learn stuff with our brains, be inventive and scientifically exam ourselves and the world
objectively (or as objectively as possible)
