god was such a buddhist
Previous | Next by pyrex 26 February, 2004 - 9:31 AM

Whilst browsing the FARK comments thread (read: now flame war) on the old woman who died during a viewing of Mel Gibson's latest, I came across this. A quick (17 questions) test, not so much of your views on god, but more how consistent your views are.

I took this test a long time ago. I had to bite one bullet because I required a higher burdens of proof for the existence of god than I did for evolution. I think the reason why it came out like that is becasue I have evidence proving evolution but I do not have evidence for god, therefore I would of course have to demand higher burdens of proof on the hypothesis of god for it to to even get to the same level of where I see the law of evolution. The test said that this made me unusual because most people feel that the weight of evidence for god and evolution are equal supposedly. That's crap.

Battleground Analysis
Congratulations!
You have been awarded the TPM medal of distinction! This is our second highest award for outstanding service on the intellectual battleground.

The fact that you progressed through this activity without being hit and biting only one bullet suggests that your beliefs about God are internally consistent and well thought out.


A direct hit would have occurred had you answered in a way that implied a logical contradiction. The bitten bullet occurred because you responded in a way that required that you held a view that most people would have found strange, incredible or unpalatable. However, because you bit only one bullet and avoided direct hits completely you still qualify for our second highest award. A good achievement!


3/1/2004 >> Casey

Ya, what view did you have that was so strange, incredible, or unpalatable?


3/2/2004 >> pyrex

I bit a bullet too, with the same reasoning given at the end. The whole "... required that you held a view that most people would have found strange, incredible or unpalatable." stuff is such BS. I hold a view that people find strange?? Who are these people, and so what if it's strange?? I don't get it. Bah. Enough HTML tags.

As I said before, my strange view was that I required more evidence for god than evolution. I have to say that if that view is considered strange, then I am afriad for the world.

I was watching the Christian Broadcasting Network breifly last night and it had a short peice on how one of the main cultural differences between the US and europe is one of spirituality. When europeans are asked to pick people they find inspirational, Nelson Mandela wins and Jesus gets 1%, below Britney Spears who gets 5%. Of course the same question int eh US nets Jesus a significantly higher mark. It went on to say that Europeans are totoallly baffled by our heavy religiousness. Something like 30% of European politicians are publically atheist. Anyway, I wonder if I my view would be so strange anymore if the test was writtenin Europe.
