That's why it's automatic. You don't notice it. Your conscious mind doesn't register it. But your subconscious on the other hand, registers everything.

You have beliefs (which are only thoughts you repeatedly think) and habits. Everyone has them. You can say that evolution has designed it so. Hate is a feeling, a emotion and you can supress it (supressing negative emotions is the most dangerous thing on this planet by a lightyear). That's why you don't notice it.

Do me a favor TB795, don't take me for a morron, ok ?

I understand perfectly your " little game ".

I know what you wrote, and probably that I know more than you on this subject.

So, I don't need these kinds of explanations.Thanks.

You assume too much. I ain't playing no damn game with you. I'll just explaining you a little bit of how your mind works...

You don't know me and you don't know how I think. You try to judge me with I write here.

I find you condescending , but very amusing.

Have I missed something? Why the crossed swords?

Unless I've skipped an important posting to this, it seems that Bandit has made an important point about hate. One that everyone should take to heart.
Hate kills. Even if hate doesn't manifest into actions toward the one that is hated, it certainly does in the one that is hating. God warns us quite sternly not to hold hate in our hearts. Research has shown that it will certainly degrade the quality and quantity of one's life.

We're all looking for answers and trying to solve the riddles and mysteries around us. Rather than bickering let's try and be a little less assuming toward one another and try a little luuurve! (Don't run with that, Netchicken!

Economic Left/Right is -2.5 with Authoritarian/Libritarian -1.9 here; Mildly Libritarian-Left...

The problem I saw with this particular "quiz" is that there were nearly a dozen poorly-worded concepts that don't really *clarify* what particular position I would stand in...They expressed a position that I would have put further qualifiers on to express the particular concept more accurately in line with my personal opinion.

In other words...They were pretty ambiguous with quite a few of their points. So TC, in response to your question;

, I'd have to say "Yes" because I *do* recognize the fact that "all" or "none" cannot be used to categorize every possible opinion, person or situation.

For one example, I agreed that religious schooling would be good for kids...But I don't believe that it should be the *only* type of schooling easily available & any type of religious schooling should also include the *history & poitical motivations* of those who've had major influences in religion; In other words (I've said it before...), I'm Pro-Choice.

It wasn't an affirmation, but a question. I just forgot the " ? ".

Hey, look. I did this stupid test one more time.

Here are my new results :

Economic Left/Right: 6.25
Authoritarian/Libertarian: 4.51

I'm close from Tatcher now.

I took the test and it figured exactly how I figure me...

I was four lines down into the Liberatarian and one line LEFT of center...

Let that be a lesson to those who would pidgeon hole me as a Republican/Right Wing Conservative! I answered the questions HONESTLY as to how I feel about them...

as you and I had, dare I say it, similar results... and the cubs are winning in the post-season... I know believe the world is coming to an end.

For the record, I think my spot overlaps with Jean Chretian's.

But, also for the record, I notice that religious leaders like John paul II are includeded in the political leader list. I guess, technically, he is... But this made me think about how my answers would differ on a religious survey as opposed to a political one. What I mean is this: Sometimes we believe that something is, under civil law, legal, but under the auspices of our particular religion immoral (a situation that, perhaps, only comes up in countries where religion and state are clearly separated).

Let me put it this way: Under the philosophy behind the Bill of Rights, for instance, I believe that the state has no right to regulate peoples' consensual sexual activity -- however, I believe in the reverse at the religious level (IE, I think the state should accept gay marriage but not the Church). So, though on a political scale I'm on the lower left, on a religious one I'm on the upper center... Which is why I think that any rating of Popes has to be off-target (I mean, JP2 is near stalin, yet, based on his life history, it's plainly obvious that JP2 is perhaps the most anti-communist world leader alive today ((he once opened a church in the middle of a planned communist village in cold war poland))).

Anyways, just an observation.

The acknowledgement of multi-hued shades being a component of EVERYONES make-up is what you take away, Springer.
