Where Do You Stand ?
    #1632010 - 06/13/03 08:27 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Hello everyone !!!


In the near future, I plan on posting a thought provoking thread.


Before I do,  I would like to know where each of you stands in terms of:

[ Edit*  What I am refering to is how this Forum is divided into the two general categories ]


1- The standpoint of a Believer
2- The perspective of a Skeptic


Note:  If you are currently unsure and are "leaning towards",  then choose where you are leaning...  Just be honest;  don't be afraid of your position... Stand your ground !!!! ...  This is NOT going to be a set-up to flame anyone.


If I see that there is interest  [ sample size will dictate ], then it will signal me to begin.


The ONLY replies that I am looking for in this particular thread are [I'll use myself as an example]:

1-  I, Deiymiyan, am a Believer,  or,
2-  I, Deiymiyan, am a Skeptic.


Thank-you for everyone that participates...  This is going to be interesting.

:grin:

For the record:


I, Deiymiyan, am a Believer.

I can't really say my position until I know what I am saying that I do or do not believe in.

My appologies, I added the edit later... I hope this clarifies...

I'm speaking in loose, general terms: "[ Edit* What I am refering to is how this Forum is divided into the two general categories ]"

If it's still unclear, allow me to re-state...

What position do you play on this forum?

For example... And if I am mistaking, please correct me.. I'll illustrate with my opinion of a few of our fellow members...

[ and this is really i think until specified..]

1- Swami seems to be a Skeptic as much as Schlorch does.
2- Fiend, Enter and Shroomism seem as Believers.

I hope that helps in clarifying the question.

Ok, I see...

Let me clarify my position: I am a skeptic insofar as I know that reality itself could be an illusion, but I live my life as if to assume that it is not an illusion, even though it very well could be.

I, Rhizoid, used to be a Skeptic who wondered about what made the Believers believe, but now I think of myself more as a Knower and a Lover :wink:

I, nubious, am a skeptical believer who's witnessed things some deny exist. After time I question myself as to if these things were real, yet remember things first hand as a reminder that theres more than meets the eye to reality.

No one knows the worth of innocence till he knows it is gone forever, and that money can't buy it back. Not the saint, but the sinner that repenteth, is he to whom the full length and breadth, and height and depth, of life's meaning is revealed. Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.

2- The perspective of a Skeptic


Your post makes no sense. One is neither skeptic nor believer except as it relates to a subject which you did not specify.

Go back to square one.

why is this going to be interesting?

why are you trying to box us in?

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
