English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. senseless

    That is absurd which is contrary to the first principles of reasoning; as, that a part should be greater than the whole is absurd. A paradoxical statement appears at first thought contradictory or absurd, while it may be really true. Anything is irrational when clearly contrary to sound reason, foolish when contrary to practical good sense, silly when petty and contemptible in its folly, erroneous when containing error that vitiates the result, unreasonable when there seems a perverse bias or an intent to go wrong. Monstrous and preposterous refer to what is overwhelmingly absurd; as, "O monstrous! eleven buckram men grown out of two," Shakespeare 1 King Henry IV, act ii, sc. 4. The ridiculous or the nonsensical is worthy only to be laughed at. The lunatic's claim to be a king is ridiculous; the Mother Goose rimes are nonsensical. Compare INCONGRUOUS.

How to use senseless in a sentence?

  1. Milwaukee Alderman Jose Perez:

    The acid attack last night near 13th and Cleveland was a heinous crime that will have a long-term impact on the life of the victim, this was senseless violence, it needs to stop.

  2. Angela Underwood Jacobs:

    Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, joined the ceremony to honor Underwood and to deliver an American flag to his family. Gov. Gavin Newsom sent an officer of the California Highway Patrol who presented the family with a California flag. In a separate video tribute, Wolf condemned the senseless cowardly violence that took Underwoods life. Officer Underwood gave his life protecting us and we owe him and his family and colleagues a debt of gratitude we will never be able to fully repay, said Wolf. George Phillips, childhood friend of slain Federal Protective Services Officer Dave Patrick Underwood, speaks during a memorial service for Underwood on Friday, June 19, 2020, in Pinole, Calif. Underwood was fatally shot as he was guarding the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building in Oakland, Calif., amid protests on May 29. (Associated Press) Underwood died from gunshot wounds in a drive-by shooting the night of May 29 as a protest in downtown Oakland that began peacefully sank into chaos. Underwood and a colleague were working that night as contract security officers for the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Protective Service. Federal authorities say the shooter used the protest as cover for the crime. Authorities say that Underwood was targeted because he wore a uniform. Last week, the FBI announced murder charges against Air Force Staff Sgt. Steve Carrillo. Authorities say Carrillo used the same homemade AR-15-style rifle eight days later to kill a Santa Cruz deputy in a hail of gunfire that wounded four other officers. Carrillo faces separate state charges for the June 6 fatal shooting of Santa Cruz County sheriffs Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller. Authorities allege that Carrillo, 32, had ties to the far-right, anti-government boogaloo movement and had hatched a plan to target federal law enforcement officials during the Oakland protest. Colleagues described Underwood as hard-working, highly respected and conscientious. Friends and family talked of his hearty laugh, his personal style he was a sharp dresser and his giving heart. When he stopped playing baseball as an adult, he donated to local youth organizations, so he could help kids find joy in the sport he loved. Underwood was the kind of guy you went to for advice, his older sister said. Hed always say, Angie, believe in yourself. Work hard, and ask for what you want, which is exactly what our mom and dad would have said.

  3. Vanna Bonta:

    There is direct correlation between a society lacking in artistic vision to lack of social conscience, i.e., crime, poverty, and senseless, violent atrocities, materialism.

  4. Yvette Burnett:

    It's a senseless death, a child, teenagers, walk into a store thinking it's legal, thinking it's not going to hurt them. They purchased something that shouldn't be sold. And we just don't want the pain of what we're going through to affect other families.

  5. Unknown:

    Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty.
