Reno 911 clip. ;)

No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.

I'm not sure it's fair to say that people who don't believe in a specific "meaning of life" are pessimistic. Most of those people live life as if each day could be their last without anything holding them back. I don't think that religion or philosophy has much to do with optimism/pessimism at all.

Some of those people have done some cool things. Regardless, it'd be silly to argue the semantics of optimism/pessimism and end up with too many definitions to reach any conclusion. I see your points though.

My main point is that pessimists have a lot to offer in some cases.
