[livejournal.com profile] susannah_banana prompted me into trying this online test. Made me think (a lot), and it's rather good.

You have been awarded the TPM medal of distinction! This is our second highest award for outstanding service on the intellectual battleground.

Try it. After you have, feel free to look at my results, here, I took one hit and bit one bullet, and the hit was a 50/50 undecided answer anyway.

[livejournal.com profile] nadriel tells me he did less well. Advantages of committed atheism ;-)

I don't know what this biting bullet stuff / hits are all about, but I emerged unscathed. I guess being an android does have advantages.

Thats a very cool test. Though im convinced that it cant be properly done with just true/false answers. (and their justification for it in the FAQ wasent exactly logical in itself...)

I bit 3 bullets, but only the second time through. I needed to go back and change some earlier answers such that the stupid thing interpreted me right.

I feel justified in doing that as in hte explanation of what I did wrong, it claimed that I thought things that i didnt...

Question 17 caught me out - which s the one in the FAQ they basically hold their hands up to and say 'fair cop'. I'm not entirely sure that their definition of rationality is the same as mine either - they seem to be holding rational as 'with concrete proof' which of course the world doesn't have. I think it's rational to believe in things which I can't actually prove - whereas they seem to see this as contradictory when I then say I don't beleive in God.

Still, it was kinda interesting, and I only slipped up in a couple of places.
