Thread: Wondering what NT's....

1. So it appears it does. This is going to drive me insane. I need to take some more math classes and try to understand. Because how can 0.9etc be 1?

Does this mean that almost is good enough? Because apparently, almost IS the quantity of 'enough' with 0.99999etc.

2. To calculate infinity always seemed odd to me.

Because 0.09 is 1/10 of 0.9 and 0.009 is 1/10 of 0.09 etc. and 0.999... just has an infinite number of fractions of fractions, so the fraction left over is infinitely small. It is 1/infinity, and anything divided by infinity is 0.

Of course.

6. gnostic atheist here

7. Agnostic Atheist. Emphasis on Agnostic in that my opinion in the matter means nothing. What I'm after is the truth...not what I believe the truth to be.

8. Agnostic Theist. I do believe something exists, but it cannot be defined by any definition that we, as humans, could create. This is only because we do not know if it exists.

9. NTs are such interesting creatures.

10. Lol okay I understand I'm not an NT. Don't worry, I didn't vote. I was just wondering how someone would classify my "beliefs".

I was baptised as both a Christian and a Buddhist when I was a baby, without my consent. I suppose I acknowledge these religions and I can understand the spirituality involved in them. But I don't consider this religion a part of who I am, and I don't consider it something that dictates my actions - in short it isn't something I think about. If I was forced or it was beneficial for me to live in a way in which religious involvement was a significant part of my lifestyle, it wouldn't bother me. I often thank/take time to appreciate life itself and things I am fortunate to have in my life when it crosses my mind, but I wouldn't say it is directed at any diety in particular. I just like to be conscious of my appreciation so that I don't take these things for granted. I guess I think of religion as more like peoples' culture/lifestyle. I guess in my mind, God and/or Buddha and/or other dieties do exist in the way that war generals in ancient history existed. The reality is that 99% of my "knowledge" is from outside sources, mostly the compiled experiences of other humans. There is plenty of this that I have yet to prove or disprove, so as far as the knowledge that I use in my day to day life, I focus on using the knowledge that I have been able to solidify through my own experience. Does that make sense? I mean if someone were to ask me if I was religious, I would say "not really" or "kind of" depending on who I am talking to - obviously to me my religious status/consistency is less important to me than getting along with other people. I think I would consider myself as a total agnostic. I wouldn't be an implicit atheist because I have *some* religious influence. I don't think I'd be an agnostic atheist because that would imply that at base I can't believe in anything I can't be sure about yet and insist on endlessly questioning everything I have no concrete proof of. Again, I don't think I'd be an agnostic theist because, well, religion/theistic thinking just isn't really a part of my life.
