    Now I remember why I majored in Chemistry.

    So where does a classical liberal on the Locke side of the fence go (i.e., not a proto-pinko Benthamite or Rousseau apologist)?

    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    I put none of the above since there's no box for "Post-Left Anarchist Raised in a Fundamentalist Christian household-formed in the crucible of WAY too much LSD and 'Ministry'-with secular Buddhist tendencies".

    I had a great post, then right in the middle of typing it, I realized that 3 or 4 paragraphs were missing due to hitting the size limits of the post window

    Someday I might repost it if I could even remember what I was typing.

    For me a non-snarky answer is that I am a lapsed Catholic but still have a lot of that healthy Jesuit skepticism/argumentativeness with a dash of classical stoicism.

    I like a bit of all and all of none. Where is that box?

    Here is a rather interesting take on philisophical foundations. Not long, maybe a page and a half if printed.

    A sense of kindness
    A sense of humor
    A sense of wonder

    I guess it sounds sappy, but if I can keep those in balance, l feel that I'm living the good life.

    Where's the option for irrational hatred of all organized religions but acceptance of personal beliefs, no matter how kooky the individual? (just don't come whining to me when your 'god' doesn't save you from whatever jam you've gotten yourself into this time). That's the option i want, so i guess i'll vote for 'None of the above'

    Kudos, brokenrobot!

    Conformity makes straight, straight roads. But the narrow, climbing paths of foolishness are roads of genius. Or something to that effect.
