I so rarely do online quizzes, but this one caught my eye.  It has questions like: “Morals are socially constructed” and “Man is condemned to be free.” Agree or disagree? How much?

So I took it, and it told me I was an existentialist.  Which is fairly true, though there’s strong Taoist tendencies in me.  Perhaps I swayed a bit because I just finished reading Ayn Rand’s “The Fountainhead.”

You scored as Existentialist. Existentialism emphasizes human capability. There is no greater power interfering with life and thus it is up to us to make things happen. Sometimes considered a negative and depressing world view, your optimism towards human accomplishment is immense. Man is condemned to be free and must accept the responsibility.

Overheard

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?

Travis just took a quiz on World View which determined him to be an Existentialist. Curious, as always, I took it myself. Apparently I am a Postmodernist. The quiz basically summed up to your view on science, religion, progress and...

What's my worldview?



I'm glad you asked.



The world needs a new religion that balances the ideals of matriarchy and patriarchy with science.



Simple.
