MARK ALL BEFORE SUBMITTING VOTE

well i really just wanted to make a poll that took advantage of the multiple options ability. so here it goes. what are you, you may mark extras, poll will be up shortly. please look things up in www.wikipedia.org if you do not know what they are. poll is public and multi options enjoy (if you see this before there is a poll, cool off come back in 20 min)
Determinists:view that all events are the necessary results of previous causes, that everything that happens has a cause.
Incompatabilists:view that there is no way to reconcile a belief in a deterministic universe with actual free will.
Transhumanists: Use of technology (in almost all forms) to remove weaknesses from the human form.
Libertarianist:hold that individuals do have metaphysical freedom and which therefore rejects determinism.
Indeterminism:a form of libertarianism that holds the view that people do have free will, and that free will actions are an effect without a cause.
Compatibilistsview that free will still emerges out of a deterministic universe even in the absence of metaphysical uncertainty. Compatibilists may define free will as arising from an inner cause, such as thoughts, beliefs, and desires. (Note one can be determinist and compatibilist at the same time)
Humanists: generally believe in upholding values and morals in the expansion of technology.
Atheists: Believe there is no god or superior being
Theists: Believe in a god or superior being of some kind.

*looks back to see definitions* you actually can be both, its called "soft determinism" if you are both deterministic and incompatibalistic it is called "hard determinism"

personally i am a hard determinist. I, like God, do not play dice. (e-cookie 2 ne1 who gets either of the references)

but although i am a hard determinist, i do not resent the illusion that i believe to exist, rather i live it in a fuller understanding. sometimes i find myself lost in "free will" but i remeber and its easier to find a solution.

Bah - why label everything? Just live your life and who cares what "category" you fall in?

And comparing yourself to God? Shame, Claus! :p

I'm kinda determinist, I think everything happens because of previous actions, but it doesn't have to have a real purpose.

the quote was V from the movie, V for Vendetta. V was reffering to the resoning of Albert Einstein's search for something more than quantum mechanics when he said "God does not play dice" (but (s)he does play skiball - another e-cookie up for grabs)
