I think this is a better idea than "Gender Bender Day".

On August 14th, our entire philosophies change. Have opposite religious, philosophical, and political beliefs from what you currently hold. I think it'd be a fun way to satirize other members or ideologies.

Your thoughts?

By page 5, this thread will be about Jesus.

Freedo would probably have gone the entire day without changing his beliefs.

Yea, pretty much.

Can we have it on a different day though? I won't really be online from the 13th to the 15th.

Ok, awesome. Yea, I really want to participate in this.

Any objections to moving this to tomorrow (August 8th)?

So, basically, I'm going to a conservative atheist who is a physicalist, hard determinist, and moral relativist. Sounds fun.

How does it feel to know that God is just a projection of your mind? And that all talk of an afterlife and immaterial "substances"/"essences" (i.e. soul) is nonsense?

"To talk of immaterial existences is to talk of nothings. To say that the human soul, angels, god, are immaterial, is to say they are nothings, or that there is no god, no angels, no soul. I cannot reason otherwise: but I believe I am supported in my creed of materialism by Locke, Tracy, and Stewart."

-- Thomas Jefferson

My options are

anarcho-capitalist
stalinist
fundementalist

or a mixture...
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

An anarcho-fundamentalist. All you need is God, without any state interfering in your faith.

Done.

You'll do great work for our spiritual collective. But I mean, who am I to judge? Of course you'll be great. I hope. You don't need me to tell you, I apologize. Our fellow men ought to be the true judge of your abilities. After all, man is a social animal, and ought to be weighed according to his social utility!
