Introduce yourself here <-----

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

I don't really post here anymore. I've been swinging by the last couple of weeks to read a thing or two, but otherwise I'm not around. Feel free to spew bile, the boards are overrun!


Did you see that post where I spoke about that purty mouth of yours? \:D/

Hey this is Backspace_losophy. That's my username because I was insanely pressing the backspace key trying to decide on a username for here #-o . And it'll hopefully remind me to double check my posts, and ask myself, is this really something I want to be posting? Anyways, nice to be here.

Mornin!

My name's Usarian and I love to ponder things! I've been discussing the deep things of the world with people on Facebook for years - and been defriended many times as a result :) - so I thought it was high time I sought out a group of like-minded people, very glad to have found you!

As I'm sure is true of all of you, I have a basic background with many departures from the status quo as I find gaps and flaws with the systems I subscribe to.

Generally, I am mostly conservative with newly minted libertarian leanings. I am a part of the Christian religion, but my beliefs in and about God are separate from my participation in and beliefs about the practices of Christianity. I was originally going to become a pastor or missionary and attended school to that end, but realized along the way that it was not for me.

Autism is a big deal for me, I have Asperger's myself, and that has dramatically impacted my analysis of the world around me.

I'm a creationist, but in a way that is completely my own personal flavor.

Economics is something I'm beginning to pick up about now by talking to people like yourselves. I had a job at a bank for a while and that was quite a baptism into that particular world.

Welp, that's an introduction, plenty of stuff for anybody who's interested to pick on! :D Looking forward to joining in!

Welcome Backspace and Usarian... hope you enjoy the boards and stick around for a while...

Well hi there!!

Right, so I've been on the search for a philosophical/intellectual kind of forum for a long time and worse, I'm a little bit picky when it comes to joining a forum/site and the like. I wish to be able to find some interesting dialogue and be able to create interesting dialogue, make new acquaintances, challenge my mindset, beliefs and oh well have a good time in the end, because that is why I am here after all.

I have decided to join such forums mainly because I'm bored, and annoyed that I cannot seem to find people who are intelligible enough to make up constructive arguments and criticism and thought that by joining a few forums I would at least figure out for myself that such people do exist although I wonder why, they are rare.

All right enough bragging about my motives, now for my introductions.
I am twenty-three, I've studied Philosophy and Religion at an advanced level and lived to tell the tale, well I was a few of the lucky one's that had a freaky class and freaky teachers. Cannot say the same for some classes though...we did have a teacher that was so obsessed with Freudian Psychoanalysis that most of the lesson used to be on these little perversions rather than what we should have been learning about. Really used to dull out my mind fuse although we at least used to have a good laugh.
Religion. Well I have a long long history of many many beliefs theories, experiences....I can honestly say nowadays that I've broadened my mind enough to say that I am not fully atheist but agnostic, only because I do believe there is some sort of higher entity that goes beyond our understanding and comprehension though doubtful it is god. My aunt is also a Theologian so more often than not, we do end up having very interesting and fun dialogues about religion and philosophy.
I now work for the technological field whilst picked up extra studies in English and Psychology and expect to graduate in them soon enough. Well I cannot really summarize my life it's too long. All I can say is that I am a very negative person, and tend to over-analyze things. I'm a nightmare regular, and I have very strong opinions and do not conform easily unless I find myself having a good reason to, and sometimes I will conform and still not give you my real motives for it :P I'm mysterious, challenging and love conveying my thoughts and ideas through writing.
I've a major interest in psychology, politics and strategy. I love music of course ( just not the thrash most groups present nowadays no offence), I'm a writer in my free time, am a bookworm and like making new friends even though I am choosy even in this regard....

Feel free to bash me now :D
See you all around I hope

It's been awhile since I've routinely been active here so I may as well reintroduce myself. My name's Jason if you prefer to call me by my name and I live in the suburbs of Chicago. I plan on starting to actively post again so hello all. There are still some names I remember from way back in the day. I'm not sure it matters, but I think I can come off as very direct. That doesn't mean I'm trying to be rude it just means I'm considering the idea presented more than I'm paying attention to the niceties of social interaction. I look forward to having good conversations with some of you.

I guess that's it.

Also, I hate Descartes.

Good day! I am Clint and currently I am taking up my degree in philosophy and working with a research paper. I hope I will be able to earn insightful reviews, comments and suggestions coming from the forumers in here as well meet new philosophically-inclined virtual friends. Thank you in advance and I am excited to take part in here. :D

My name is Jimmy. I had thought message boards dead, and maybe this one will be soon, but will try to post until it is. I live in South Dakota. If I am going to have decent conversation it must be in places like this. None of the IRL neighbors are interested. Thanks for having me.

:lol:
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Goord morning.

My name is Ed and I am a dreamer, sound engineer and currently a short term insurance broker. As of the 6th of October I will be a student again studying programming. (Have to learn more in life)
I love my wife, writing, dancing, good music and nature. The occasional psychedelic is seen as an escape from reality, but purely for recreational fun.

We live in Cape Town, South Africa, but exploring the options of moving abroad to a (hopefully) more majestic piece of earth. I love my town and surroundings, but there is just to much to see in the world than to sit in one place and think it is the best place on earth.

I am a religious man, but wont force that upon anyone as it is on the small list of impossible things one can achieve. Freedom of will is HUGE!

Anyways, I am here to have a good conversation, learn and teach. :-"

A lot of different people here with different ideas, some are open minded, others tend to stick to one idea. Depends on your definition of open minded and what's being talked about.
