Using Bees To Effect Vengeance

I get to be as self-indulgent as I want without wasting anyone's time. Guilt-free solipsism -- excellent!

Battleground God -- a test to determine whether your beliefs about God are internally consistent. [via Flutterby]


You have been awarded the TPM medal of honour! This is our highest award for outstanding service on the intellectual battleground. The fact that you progressed through this activity neither being hit nor biting a bullet suggests that your beliefs about God are internally consistent and very well thought out.

They bloody well better be, given the amount of thought I've put into them!

A direct hit would have occurred had you answered in a way that implied a logical contradiction. You would have bitten bullets had you responded in ways that required that you held views that most people would have found strange, incredible or unpalatable. However, you avoided both these fates - and in doing so qualify for our highest award. A fine achievement!

37469 people have completed this activity to date.
You suffered zero direct hits and bit zero bullets.
This compares with the average player of this activity to date who takes 1.29 hits and bites 1.06 bullets.
8.44% of the people who have completed this activity, like you, emerged unscathed with the TPM Medal of Honour.

I must admit, I was confident going into this test. If there's one thing I work hard at, it's being logically internally consistent. You think I'm being facetious, but I'm not.

As some of you know (Hi Georjean!), when discussing religion, I almost always end up foaming at the mouth about the need for internal consistency rather than debating whether God actually does or doesn't exist. As even more of you know (Hi everyone!), I tend to be very process-focused rather than results-focused, in a Kantian fashion, if you will, as it were, to be sure.
