    Do you believe in giving thanks?

    Why not read aloud "I Pencil" every thanksgiving? It seems just as fitting. But yeah, I acknowledge that a lot of people work hard, and that through mere chance I was born into a comfortable position in life. There is no rhyme or reason to it, no gods, no providence, but I certainly appreciate...

    Confess all your sins here.

    For sake of discussion, can we stipulate that a "sin" is "A socially disagreeable act that one would not ordinarily admit or confess to, without the benefit on online anonymity"? If that is the case, drinking one's piss might be considered a sin, unless in the company of Bear Grills ;)

    That is actually the version my friend loaned me. And I do love Criterion, although not every movie they publish is necessarily great. But I am thankful that they keep cult classics alive

    Mentally Traumatizing Movies

    You and I have either the same taste in movies or in friends. As for the ones that straddle the line between schlock and art, I have no clue where to place Tusk. The Serbian film on the other hand...it is a class unto its own. Salo, if/when you get around to it, is remarkably and surprisingly...

    Would God Suffer from Existential Dread?

    I agree with the first bit of what you said. But i would go further and say that the idea of "God" is the same; a petty attempt to rationalize our own mortality, and hence a projection of all our vanities and insecurities (that is why i made the argument). But it seems like "just is" is the...

    Would God Suffer from Existential Dread?

    Now, I do not believe in any gods whatsoever, but for the purposes of this thread, let's assume God exists--discussions of God's existence are not germane to the topic. Also, as the question is really about existentialism, I have placed this in the philosophy rather than faith section...

    A God Awakens--What did I miss?

    Ha! In truth I hate the beach. But for the sake of argument, you may find a stranger's watch or wallet. Possibly a neat shell. And public drunkenness (or in some places, nudity) is entirely acceptable. The above makes said walks "fun"

    A God Awakens--What did I miss?

    Yes. There were a lot of those (that seems to be a favorite topic on INTPf). Depending on which one you speak of, my opinions have probably changed. I grew steadily toward atheism as time progressed, and if I remember correctly that likely reflected itself in my comments. My earlier, more...

    Driving a Car

    I remember when I learned to drive. It sucked, and I hated it. But once you get used to the feeling it's actually quite nice. You can get from A-b without having to rely on anyone, but it's all about getting past that initial awkwardness.

    The Importance of Deception

    It is a lesson about implicit trust in an authority. They said something was true, and it wasn't. A was lied to by person B. A learned he couldn't trust B, and quite possibly became more doubtful about the claims of C,D,F and G too, or at least felt the need to explore their claims.

    Uneven expansion

    Or did you mean just being subject to a stable change in gravity? Lighter or heavier? If on Jupiter, you'd be crushed to death. If on the moon, you'd be footloose and fancy free.

    Uneven expansion

    i imagine it would feel like you were a trampoline being jumped on. Heavily varying gravitational fields would warp matter by pulling and releasing, wave by wave.

    Antiquated Language

    Personally, I have read more older texts than I have new ones. This of course being a consequence not wanting to spend money. As a result, I tend to use older terms, and the older connotations of said terms, more often. This occurs both in spoken and written language, and people do comment on it.

    A & B theories of Time

    I tend to like B theory more. The expanding block concept seems to make some sense too. But if you say that the past no longer exists, then you can't make certain logical concepts valid.
