You're going to have to come to scotland then. Pineapple doesn't belong anywhere in this earthly realm. It came from hell and it should fucking well go back there and take kiwi fruit with it :argh!:

Pineapple is awful.  But it is good on pizza.

And kiwifruit is life and you should shut your big gob about them, before you piss God off.

Yeah cos that ship never sailed into the shitcan more or less along with my placenta :lulz:

Woo I believe in...

Okay so. I believe that lunar rabbits are linked to the assassination of JFK.

I believe cartoon characters, gods, angels, demons, and fairies are all different facets of the same "thing". I also believe cartoons were watched in ancient caves (the art was animated by firelight).

I have maybe gotten results from sigils? And definitely got results from pagan worship of the Goddess Eris. She kept my grandfather alive (maybe), and got me a girlfriend who took my virginity (definitely, said girl claimed to have been after me for years and asked me out without me being attractive at ALL). Said woman was born on the fifth day of the fifth month, and an asshole. So it all checked out.

I think "Magickal Energy" isn't energy or matter. It's some densely put together unconscious information, kinda like what you find in the webnovel Fine Structure. I am still searching for the perfect word for it.

Oz is real and I'm going there when I die. Nonestica for LIFE! All bow before the beautiful transgirl Princess Ozma!

I believe in souls and afterlives as an act of cowardice in response to my existential vertigo about existing at all and ceasing to exist.

Synchronicities happen a lot. 17 and 23 and 5 keep showing up. I'm hoping this is good Eris stuff and not bad.

I made up a myth about Eris's twin sister Aneris falling in lesbian love with her reflection Sirena and leaving reality for her, our messed up moon being a result. I'm not sure I believe this.

I struggle with traditional Tarot reading, but I do have Homestuck, giant Rider-Waite, and Wonderland decks. What works for me is Morgan's Tarot, which is actually an oracle deck. It's very chillaxed. (I also own a Pathfinder Harrow deck, but mainly for the Rabbit Prince card, and enjoyed some of its weird spread layouts in its supplement book.)

I believe Lewis Carroll's Alice books and Hunting of the Snark would make a good basis for a Gnostic religion.

I think that if anyone knows how to solve the problem of suffering, it is Jenna Moran, who wrote Nobilis, Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine, and Hitherby Dragons.

I also believe in beauty and love and truth as the highest principles to serve. And I also believe I'm trans.
Often incoherent. Tends to ramble on about various topics.
Hopes to get beyond that.

I'm quite certain (But don't necessarily believe) that the universe we know likely does have a creator of some sort. I suspect that they are just as reckless and clueless as humans, which would explain why we are the prevailing specie in the world it created. I doubt the creator is omniscient or omnipotent in any way. If some guy creates a server farm, he doesn't have complete control over what goes on in the server farm at all times, nor do they know what is even going on unless they're actively watching. And even then, their knowledge of the inner-workings is as limited as their tools for observation. I think there are limitations in the creator's world, just like there are in ours.

I suspect that at at least some point in our universe, there is a communication between our world and the creator's. Whether we're in a computer simulation and that communication would be a serial port from one component to another in a super computer, or the line of communication is accessible everywhere with the right program, I'm not sure. One thing I do know, is that if there is a hole in our universe through which we can communicate with that which is outside, I intend to find it.

My first thought when coming into contact with a new system is "How does it work, and what would it take to make it do something its creator didn't intend?" I suspect that this mindset is required to find such a universal window into the beyond.



And shit, if this is just a solid, fucked up world created by nobody, it was all worth the adventure of pushing the limits. And if this world was created by an omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient being, then that sadistic fuck can suck a fucking tailpipe. And I'll gladly tell them that when I see them.
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

Yeah. Holding such a Thing as God to modern human standards is a sort of backdoor hubris. IF there is a God as such It invented everything including suffering for whatever purposes.

We might not even be the ultimate end sought. For all we know there isn't one. I've taken my gripes and left them on God's doorstep regarding suffering and unfairness a long time ago now. I still issue the occasional complaint, but I don't HATE God because shit is rough here on Earth.

After reading the Prince of Nothing series by R. Scott Bakker, I've decided to completely endorse the metaphysics of that universe and believe in it utterly. Because I heard the guy has a PhD in psychology or some such field, which means he probably knows more about it while he's making shit up than I ever will be earnestly contemplating. Also the idea that God is the only soul that exists and human consciousness is a tiny shard of that soul's experience cut off from awareness of the whole isn't new, even to me, and it means that by some tortured convolution, I get to be Salvador Dali.

I've been saying that since this board started up.  NEVER ASK THE GODS FOR ANYTHING.  It always ends badly.  Also, if a god was misrepresenting himself, how would you know?  For all we know, God is actually a nice guy that just wasn't paying attention.  But that's not how you bet.

This is why the Vikings had it right. They knew their gods were dangerous unstable assholes, and got on to doing most things by themselves. None of this, "Jesus take the wheel" bullshit.

If they're omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, then they're knowingly subjecting innocent people to undue amounts of horror. That makes them a complete sack of shit. It's much less to do with convenience.

I would argue that "We aren't the main characters" isn't a defense for universal neglect. When applied elsewhere, that concept is immoral.

  For all we know, God is actually a nice guy that just wasn't paying attention.  But that's not how you bet.

Any being that pushes life into the world (And intends for it to live a full life) is partially responsible for that life's developmental and environmental conditions. If you control the type of environment that a life is brought up in, you are responsible for the results. In other words, if you buy a pet or have a kid, and leave either in the wilderness to die/live on its own, you're an abusive sack of shit. This is obvious to everyone here, and I would think this concept would apply to any being.

And let's say for a moment that maybe the Creator wanted or expected us to die immediately, or intended to abort us, if you will. This certainly isn't a humane way of doing it.

My point is, if there is a Creator, what they've done is irredeemable in all respects. Even if they've not been paying attention, they should've known (If they were capable of creating a universe) that life could've been generated, and that it could suffer if neglected. As careless and silly as humans are, they at least have the ability (And urge, in most cases) to care for their own.


Also, at the moment, I'm not sure I'm very adept at reading certain social queues, including tone and attitude in my own post. I removed and edited what I could find, but if anything in here seems confrontational or rude, please ignore it. I like these discussions, and am not trying to fight. The weed I had last night was fucking purple. I'm a little hazy right now.  :lulz:

Ok, here’s my woo.  It took me a while to  get it right in my head.

- I believe in an objectively real Universe that exists outside of my mind, and contains many things including myself.

- I believe that the Universe is not a shared hallucination, and is subject to laws and rules; and with enough effort, these laws and rules can be understood.

- I believe that there are laws and rules we do not know of yet.

- I believe that whatever these undiscovered rules and laws might be, they either need to fit in with the rules and laws we already know, or they rewrite all the rules and laws that have been discovered over the last 100 years (i.e. ever since Newton’s understanding was found to be too broad).

- I believe that any idea about how the Universe works that does not feel the need to adhere to the known laws and rules has a greater than 50% chance of being wrong.
