We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
the god of the test's author(s)
is embodied by reason and logical consistency.
i had several objections to the method of questioning
(T/F) and the extreme interpretations and literal extrapolations of the answers....(despite some of these very same objections being addressed in the author's FAQ.)
..in other words...literal adherence to "principle" with little or no allowance for judgement or intelligence to enter in..
one Hit i received,conflating "inner convictions"
and a rapist/murderer's "inner convictions",
was one of the more egregious.
as usual,you cannot exhange ideas on
the reality of an interior world
with people who have convinced themselves
such a thing does not,cannot,
and should not exist.
if religion is a growth of conciousness,
one cannot obtain truth of its reality
without the growth of one's own conciousness.
to deny religious conciouness from the outset
by demanding proof of its claims,
cuts off the process before it begins...
much like having an hypothesis and no expermental data.
and the extreme rationalists count that as beneficial to themselves and insist it would be best if all others
similarly submitted themselves.
