    Deicide

    Quite so.

    The Jews were blamed for the death of Jesus and designated for 2,000 years as deicides, that is, murderers of God.

    This led to discrimination and constant pograms particulary every Easter. And leading naturally into the Shoah, or Holocaust.

    And it is only quite recently the Church in its ineffable wisdom has declared the Jews are no longer deicides.

    Speak for yourself. I celebrate the Solstice, another event shanghaied by institutional Christianity to co-opt existing popular sentiment.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I could then argue that we couldn't type characters either because they are not real life human beings and don't have "real cognitive functions".

    What type is office jesus?
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    The deeper problem is that typing is not based on evidence and reason. For instance, mbti has not been subject to even one random double blind experiment in 70 years.

    Typing is simply fantasy with a scientific patina. Typing is pseudo science.

    Typing has precisely the same truth value as astrology.

    In fact typing and star signs are ways to induce a light trance, so that our critical faculites are befuddled, and we are susceptible to suggestion. And the military like their recruits to be susceptible to suggestion, just as employers like their employees susceptible to suggestion, and just as predators like their victims to be susceptible to sexual suggestion.

    To tell the truth, people can't really type other people. They can just map out a person's cognitive functions. There are way too variables in a person's life in order to put them into a concrete type and there are so many different ways that people can develop other functions. The best we can do is attempt to map out a person's cognitive functions in order to determine which type they would fit in better than any other.

    Psychometricians measure personality. So if we are sincere in wanting to know our own personality, we would pay a qualified psychometrician to measure our personality and interpret the results for us.
