Help me give my freind a title!
    #2347764 - 02/17/04 11:50 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

My freind is a very non-commital person, and doesn't know if he falls into the believer/non-believer/agnostic catergory. He seems to have several conflicting ideas which make him hard to place into anyone place, he says that he just "is" and I remarked he should think of himself as a human being.
He believes the world will end as we know it in 2012.
He believes God can be disproved through asking a God to intervene in the path of a penny tossed to the ground, then tossing it to see if it hits the ground.
He believes in karma (the bastardized version of "what goes around comes around, not as a part of the reincarnation cycle)

After hundreds of years of philisophical debate, I'm sure there is a word to describe my freind. Can you help him?

I think one word could never paint a descriptive enough picture as reading your whole post did.

Why does he want a label? Labels are made for sorting out items (division). Tell your friend to stay simple the " is" that he is :smile:

thats what I say as well, why try to label everything. Wanting a label or category for every thing shows you have an inate sense to know what is real, and what is not. Why cant things just BE

> He believes God can be disproved through asking a God to intervene in the path of a penny tossed to the ground, then tossing it to see if it hits the ground.

Hmmm... so if he tosses a penny to the ground and asks me to intervene, and I do not, then I also do not exist?  Clever that...  :grin:

yes, I think the example of the penny was one that scientists can "prove" god doesent exist by those means...if he doesent intervine when we ask, OH NO, he's not there... right? wroong. But you make a good point Seuss, just because you dont stop the penny doesent mean you dont exist... OR DOES IT!?!?

and by the way ShroomHermit




"He believes the world will end as we know it in 2012.

He believes God can be disproved through asking a God to intervene in the path of a penny tossed to the ground, then tossing it to see if it hits the ground.

He believes in karma (the bastardized version of "what goes around comes around, not as a part of the reincarnation cycle)"



those 3 things either I dident say, or you misinterpreted what I meant.

New Age agnostic?

Dogmatic mystic?

Paranoid determinist?

There's some labels for ya. Take heed, no label ever covers the content perfectly.
