Do you hold back ideas or beliefs on this forum?
    #2219239 - 01/04/04 11:10 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I was just kind of curious if you guys felt comfortable posting whatever on the internet. Are you scared to have certain beliefs or ideas of yours come under fire because they're a little too personal or not based on anything you can express in words.

If so, do you take this too seriously?

Thats funny, Mix.

No they couldn't find me.. I don't want to post something and spend hours trying to defend it when I truthfully don't wish to convert anyone to my belief system...Converters suck...

I'm much more forthcoming on these boards than I am in real life.

Though I don't post regularly here anymore, I've posted some very uh... unconventional beliefs on S&P in the past. But now I tend to keep my beliefs to myself, not for fear of ridicule but simply because people have a built-in mechanism to reject ideas that are too far from social norms. I've sinced learned that the answers come only to those seeking them, ie. when the student is ready the teacher will appear.

I don't really post that often, basically because alot of the time, in threads I could relate to, someone will usually end up posting thoughts that are similar to my own.  In these cases I guess I usually just choose keep my 'mouth' shut and keep reading.  :grin: 

I'm not sure if this would be considered holding back ideas or not, but in any case, nice topic  :smile:

Even I hold back stuff. Mostly because I don't enjoy having intimate and lifechanging experiences chopped up, analyzed, and criticized.

"Nobody argues that the sun goes up and down"

In other words, those who know...don't say.

Those who know much say little....those who know very little, say very much.

Wise men speak because they have something to say...Fools; because they have to say something.

Not to call everybody who argues and debates on this forum a fool. But this is to point out some of the MAIN reasons why I don't bother too much with discussing or debating my own personal philisophical beliefs that *I* know to be true to myself.

But sometimes I enjoy a lil mental masturbation here and there. :wink:

scorp: "my own personal philisophical beliefs that *I* know to be true to myself"

thats pretty protectionist, one would think that if someone truly believed in their own ideas, they would be able to defend them in the face of scrutiny.

I know that fish are happy.

why?

Because I know.

-shrugs-

one would think that if someone truly believed in their own ideas, they would be able to defend them in the face of scrutiny.
I do, and I have, many many times in the past...I USED to debate them alot when I was younger, but now I've discussed most if not all general philisophical discussions on life and its beautiful little intricacies, and like most if not all people, have came to our own conclusions and beliefs, thus I dont feel any special inclination to debate or argue fanatically about my beliefs. If I see a debate occuring where I feel like participating in, whether for the sake of killing boredom or asserting my beliefs or just plain ol mental masturbation, or whatever else, I'll do it.
If I find new, interesting topics or subjects I've rarely discussed or learned about, I'll naturally feel more inclined to gain insights in the matter and so forth.
The whole point I was making, wasn't about protecting beliefs merely in fear of scrutinization; what I'm saying is that when one has achieved satisfaction in a great question that they seek an answer to, and gained the answer whether through self-soul searching, or countless debates, or otherwise, finally finds the answer within themselves that they know to be true, they wont necessarilly feel so much inclined to assert their knowledge FOR that purpose--finding the answer. And this is the case with ME. I feel that no one has the right to impose his or her beliefs on another person. I will not propose to you that my way is best. The decision is up to you. If you find some point which may be suitable for you, then you can carry out experiments yourself. If you find that it is of no use, then you can discard it.

skorpivo, I've found you're really good about trying to defend your stupid ideas. When you jump into a post, the fun begins

My answer would be a compilation from what most of the others said.

I have posted some things in an effort to have others help me understand abstruse concepts by discussing them. But that isn't very often.

And it wasn't in this forum.

I like intelligent debate. I hate arguing.
