A few questions . . . posted 10 August 2005 in Author Q &amp; AA few questions . . . by Lucimay, Subdidact

Quote:
Was The God Emperor of Dune an inspiration in any way Scott?


ah! i've been waiting for the answer to that question too!

AND i feel the same way about the Dune series! my Pop turned me on to Dune, or tried to, when I was about 15 or 16. i blew it off (thinking my old dad a geezer!) as i wanted to read what i considered more "contemporary" sci-fi!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

took me 3 or 4 more years to finally pick it up and realize my old dad was right, classics are classics for a reason!! so i loved the first trilogy of Dune but i thought the books got weaker and weaker. finally gave up on it and read Herbert's White Plague instead! view post

Battleground God posted 10 August 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionBattleground God by Lucimay, Subdidact

well i DO have a few years on you!!! <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->
meaning more time to get it straight in my head.

also i think language becomes a problem in, for instance, tests like the one we're referring to, or even in conversation with one another. i once had a discussion with a friend regarding God and the Universe and what we both thought about it all. he was (and still is) a truly devout catholic (to the point he nearly became a priest and i mean VERY nearly, but decided he'd rather have a wife instead) and what we got to at the end of the discussion which was several hours long and very heated in spots, was that we both believed the same thing, we just had different ways of talking about it or verbalizing it.

if you're not christian and have never had any christian indoctrination, you don't use that language to speak about life after death, even if you believe in it,...my point being that when you take a test like this one, language is an issue in the way the questions are asked. dig?
or am i once more displaying my insanity? view post


Battleground God posted 10 August 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionBattleground God by Lucimay, Subdidact

I dont think you having the years on me is much of a factor really because i do not want to get things straightened in my head.


well perhaps i'm having a problem understanding your english, but,

a) tell me time and life experience are not a factor when you are 26 years older than you are now (trying very hard NOT to be pedantic <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> )

and b)

i cannot reconcile my religious upbringing ith my own perceptions and interpretations of God and the world


in other words (my point exactly), get it straight in your head.

sooner or later you will decide what you think, or believe and then you will have "gotten it straight" in your head (and probably your heart as well)

see how language and how we use language gets in the way of how we understand each other?

of course, once again, i'm not what anyone would consider "normal" by any stretch of the imagination, and can only state my opinion, based on my own experience. i think that language IS a factor in how anyone actually scores on this little quiz. view post


Battleground God posted 10 August 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionBattleground God by Lucimay, Subdidact

what is the whatnot part of god?

my conception of God does not reconcile with my conception of reality

so, (and here again, language is the difficulty, further proving my point)
you believe in something (your conception of god) that you cannot reconcile (is not compatable with) YOUR conception of REALITY (a truly overused word and misunderstood concept). have i got it?

i'm not attempting a debate point here, i'm trying to clarify exactly what it is you're trying to tell me. what do you believe? what is your conception of reality. is my conception of reality the same as yours? is one of us right and one of us wrong? see where i'm going here.
language.
my point still holds.
i had no hits and no bullets bitten because i am older and have had more time to figure out how to answer the questions so as not to contradict myself!!!!! i've taken more of these kind of tests that you have!!!! hahahahahahahaaha!!!! it's not really a test of anything but your language skills, targ!!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> right? view post

i'm trying to think of something witty to say to that but i think you just out thought the lot of us, Echoex!!!!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> view post


Battleground God posted 11 August 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionBattleground God by Lucimay, Subdidact

Well i didn't expect to get through the quiz unscathed because i know my beliefs are riddled with inconsistencies.


okay...here's the deal with me...I didn't expect to get through the quiz unscathed either. the fact that I DID, even tho' my own beliefs are ALSO riddled with inconsistencies and contradictions, makes me think it's NOT a very good test of the things it's trying to measure! (either that or i'm underestimating the strength of my own convictions, which is what my mate thinks, he would say that i'm more ontologically secure than i think i am!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> )

so i figured if there IS something wrong with the test, it would be the language of the test, knowing, from my own experience that two people can be saying the same thing in the same (english) language but use different words to do so.

i therefore assumed that if I could take the test and have no hits and no bullets bitten, there MUST be something wrong with the test!!
i looked at it, not as an actual test of my belief system but as an obstacle course that could be negotiated, and i didn't take the results seriously!
further, you RANKED me for resurrecting the dead thread anyway and so i thought i'd give YOU a little ranking back! just razz you a bit. not serious debate or argument or anything.

(plus...now that i've passed a certain chronological AGE, i feel entitled to pull out "the age and life experience" card in ANY argument with anyone who is 20 years younger than me!!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> , hell, my dad has been using this on me all my life so i figured it was MY turn!!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> )

having said all that, i now wish i HADN'T razzed you into getting into this serious conversation about your beliefs and concept of reality because this (posting on a forum) is a difficult place to try to explain such things. altho' this forum is a better place than most for attempting because the people here are so very kind and tolerant!!
so...in closing...i would just say that i still think the test is not really a true measure of your belief system, just a good way to generate interesting conversation. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post

piss taking, exactly.

rank. hmmmm. i don't know where i got it. sounds kind of world war twoish doesn't it. i don't think its a regional thing but it could be. i sometimes lapse into what my san francisco friends call southernisms.

What is your favorite sport? posted 15 August 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is your favorite sport? by Lucimay, Subdidact

baseball. very spiritual game. all that physics with the ball!

(my favorite camera angle in a televised game is catcher!! love to see that thing come whirlin' toward home plate and shimmy right at the end of the bat!!)

AND if no one gets a hit a game could potentially go on forever.
plus, baseball players. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post

he says figure skating is for 14 year old girls or those with the heart of a 14 year old girl (as if this were some kind of an insult!! i quite enjoyed being a 14 year old girl the year i was a 14 year old girl) he thinks he's being insulting. that's only because he's never been a 14 year old girl and doesn't know what he's missing!!! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> view post
