Just for fun.

This is sort of interesting, if you know anything about philosophy. (If not, move along....) It's a series of photographs of various philosophers, some very well-known, some not so much.

Similarly, if you've ever played AD&D and know something about the academy, this is just great. If only these things really worked. (Or just Cause Participation and Render Legible. I could make do with those.)

This is also fun, containing a YouTube video of an atheist trying to calmly deal with a pair of evangelist twits. I'm with Stardust, though: I would've told them to fuck off after about a minute.

Finally, some quizzes:

Meta-ethical theories:

Intuitionist
You scored 65 Objectivism, 31 Naturalism, and 95 Cognitivism!
Many judges and much of the legal system is Intuitionist (as far as it goes, philosophically) in outlook to some degree. "Ethical intuitionism is usually understood as a meta-ethical theory that embraces the following theses: Moral realism, the view that there are objective facts about value, Ethical non-naturalism, the view that these evaluative facts cannot be reduced to natural facts, and The thesis that we sometimes have intuitive awareness of value, or intuitive knowledge of evaluative facts, which forms the foundation of our ethical knowledge."

You fear the persecution of those that are different or underprivileged so much that you are willing to fight and hurt others for your cause.
