No to all.
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.

I feel that some of these terms can be defined in a way to where I could possibly say, "Yeah sure, why not".... But I mean.. In the traditional understandings of just about all of these... No.

Also, I don't believe in anything supernatural. To me, supernatural by definition is an impossibility and an absurdity. If something seems supernatural, it is due to an ignorance of the natural elements involved.

Entities of Sin are beings that a purely evil, they exist to bring ruin for no gain. - eg. whore of Babylon, Anti Christ. Allegedly - George Bush, Hitler.

Oh ok. Well, I don't believe in entities of sin even though George W. Bush was pretty darn close.
There are no bad people, only people that do bad things.

Sorry about the double post. I just thought I'd say that I always thought that demons were the original fallen angels that fell with Lucifer. But I guess it's open to interpretation.

I don't understand how someone could check 'yes' in the god box, but no to the 'magic' box. How?

Magic has rules.

God can do whatever he wants, and "has done" whatever the theist wants to explain.

I think it depends on what your definition of magic is. Most of the Christian community does not believe in wizards and witches and what not doing weird magic stuff. I believe in magic as in miracles, but nothing like the magic that most associate wizards and what not with.

In Africa they wholeheartedly believe in magic, including the Christians.

That's because when Christian missionaries came into Africa, the African and Christian beliefs were mixed. I said MOST of the Christian community doesn't believe in wizards with magic spells or spell books or anything.

Wut?
Pick a paradigm, religious or fictional. It will have rules, though not everyone will know all of them, and in fiction in recognition of this those rules may not be fully described. Xanth? Puns and one-innate-talent-per-person, the strength but not nature of which is in significant part hereditary. some examples from modern Wicca: three-fold-law, spells in purified circles while skyclad...

I'd say Chaos magic, in RL not fiction anyway, is notable for its lack of rules; but I'm certainly no expert.
