    New Forums!

    People should be appreciative.. they could be much worse. I for one think they're fine. It will take time to get used to them, but we will. *Remembers moving from the original CN Forums
  2. is liking the new forums

  3. Though, my reporting didn't go so well, I appreciate your time in the matter. Have a nice day!

  4. I cannot find where it is linked to any of his works.. I have a feeling it wasn't in any of his published works. I agree with what you're saying and I wasn't stating that it says that Truth doesn't exist, but more of a lot of things we see as the truth may not actually be the truth or are often an opinion. If I have my way and you have your way.. we both see it as the way, but it doesn't necessarily mean it is The Way. You could basically exchange truth with way and see what I am saying. There may not be a way or a person alive who can officially say that there is an official way or truth.. but like my next point.. I said that often the majority chooses one way and choose to see it as their truth. As for his quote "God is dead, for we have killed him" I have always thought that he meant our concept of God. The way we made God in a sense made it like he doesn't exist. Not that he doesn't exist, but our many representations have diluted his image or falsified him. Though going back to interpretations.. that is just how I myself have chosen to see it.. It wouldn't be a surprise if he was definitely an Atheist. There is definitely enough of his words to support that belief. I apologize if none of this makes sense to you.. like I said I think differently and often am the only person who can decipher what I am trying to say.
  5. Where did I say I was a philosopher? As pointed out in the first post.. you can't threaten people to read the blog.. so posting the link to this blog in random places is the only way to get people to read it.. so hush
  6. “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” -Friedrich Nietzsche- About the Author I am a fan of Philosophy, Poetry and most literature. It was once pointed out that all of my favorite authors exhibited either a mental problem or addiction of some kind. Nietzsche is not excluded from this interesting point. We all have our addictions, some are worse than others and I will admit to having a few (All legal mind you). Whether I am mental or not, I will leave that to you. I will not argue the fact I think differently or admire those that also think differently. Let us get back to the main topic.. (I am great at going off topic) I would love to hear some of your (anyone who happens to be reading this) representations of this quote. What do you think it means? Do you agree? I believe most things can be taken in several ways. What the author was originally trying to say may not be what you get from it. I personally think it exhibits many truths and I will list a few. We will most likely never agree on everything You have your beliefs, I have mine.. I can attempt to prove mine and so can you, but we could argue our individual cases forever. If we can't truly prove each other wrong, why not say the truth doesn't exist? The Truth is an opinion Following my previous point, it isn't hard for me to say that the truth in many cases could always be seen as an opinion. In many cases the popular opinion acts as the truth. Majority Rules If we all said the sky was pink and everything we thought was blue was instantly pink because we all believe it to be so.. who will argue? Everything we believe could probably be a direct effect of the influences upon ours lives. Maybe Nietzsche was just pointing out that we will never agree or that we should just maintain our own opinions without trying to make them facts. I could probably agree with almost any representation of this quote, as it could be referring to nothing and everything, and I am quite open minded. Please give me your outlook on it... I've already admitted to thinking differently so if you see it as something totally different or don't agree with me SAY SO!
  7. Is it just me or does the world seem to be going in the wrong direction ? Everyone pretends to be something they're not, natural resources are low , gas prices are high , jails are overpopulated. Believe it or not I can link all of the above to "Wanting More." If you think about it this country was formed on "Wanting More." We wanted to have freedom of religion and once we had it we made so many denominations even I can't keep track. I won't blame this on religion , but our American way is to want more and get more. We work longer and harder to keep up with the "Jones." We drive big SUVs and the need to get more makes us do a lot of things we shouldn't. If we originally came here for freedom , why are we all trying to get the same things. We came here because we wanted different things and we now all want the same things. To say we are all like this is a bit much, I suppose there are a few out there , who are happy with what they have and enjoy life. God knows not enough people are this way, but again would we be anywhere without this "Want for More? " I think not. Yes it has its downsides, but if it wasn't for wanting more we wouldn't have a lot of the simple things we need. Though Need can be taken differently today. We don't necessarily need electricity, but we are used to it and would highly prefer to not live without it. So all this actually has a point.. Hard to believe, but I am getting there. I will not say it is bad to want more or the same things as everyone else, but don't do it because everyone else does. If you personally want that new Ipod go get it. If you want it because all your friends have it ... might want to work on your priorities. I think we need to keep up the "Wanting More," but feel we need to make sure it is what we want and if there is something you want and don't have ... Work For IT. This whole lot of words came to me, as I was thinking of today's youth. There was a day when inventions were made that changed the world, there were people who stood up to change the world, and there were people who sacrificed it all to get it all. I do not want to live a life like everyone elses. I want to make a difference and be someone who changes what needs to be changed in someway or another. So I am calling all you Ben Franklins, George Washingtons , Martin Luther Kings, writers, inventors , artists, builders, and revolutionaries to stand up do what YOU WANT and make a difference. I want to see more differences made and opinions voiced. I can't say I or everyone/anyone will agree, but why should that stop you. I doubt everyone agrees with me, but here I am voicing things that pop in my head. I just want everyone to make sure they're all they can be. (Sorry for using the Slogan) If we really want to survive the next ice age, natural disaster, energy crisis, we need people with ideas to stand up and not only Want More, Expect More ! Comments are welcome even if you disagree.. please continue reading my blog and once again give me your opinion!

  10. Would that be against the rules? <3 Everyone for commenting.. next post will be a bit more interesting/insulting so make sure you keep a look out for it
  11. Firstly, you know me as Craven.. I didn't really intend to use this as my name it was actually part of a noob mistake involving multiple nations.. but lets continue.. this is a part of the rules we had to agree to >_> There went my plan I was really looking forward to threatening every single one of you.. I mean how else will I get you to read this? I guess I could harass you with vulgar, hateful, and maybe profane language... oh wait I can't Moving on... Firefox spell checker doesn't recognize "violative" as posted in this lovely set of rules.. So I figured I'd look it up and make sure it exists.. here is what www.thefreedictionary.com has As you can see it doesn't have its own definition.. It insists on being part of the "Violate" definition as does every other word that stems from "Violate" I will now try to get to my point.. I'll try not to do any of that though.. 4 is pretty hard for me though.. I can be quite disturbing.. Okay, that concludes my intro.. I will be posting similar, but non-related nonsense in a few seconds.. Why not just post it here you ask? I shall select a word from above non-related I am ridiculous, but I am not going to post a bunch of non-related items just to save space!
