I can see that

Your result for The which philosophy suits your personality? Test...

Proof God Exists, by Augustine

40% Nature, 58% Rationalism, 70% Religion, 48% Freedom, 43% Individuality, 38% Power and 40% Uncertainty!


You scored highest on the variable Religion. Religion was an important part of Augustine's philosophy.





Saint Augustine, 354 – 430, Algeria.





Augustine was famous for his completely theoretical proofs of God's existence, which don't make very much sense to us now.



ONTOLOGICAL ARGUMENT 1:


(1) I define God to be X.


(2) Since I can conceive of X, X must exist.


(3) Therefore, God exists.




ONTOLOGICAL ARGUMENT (II):


(1) I can conceive of a perfect God.


(2) One of the qualities of perfection is existence.


(3) Therefore, God exists.



I already said it doesn't make very much sense to us now ...



Possible results:


Nature: the Scala Naturae by Aristotle


Rationality: Cogito Ergo Sum by Descartes


Religion: Proof God Exists by Saint Augustine


Freedom: Existentialism by Sartre


Individuality: Personal Religion by Kierkegaard


Power: Will to Power by Nietzsche


Uncertainty: Agnosticism by Hume


No high variable: Synthetic Perception by Kant

Hmm, I think that that particular argument is one of those that you can grasp for a moment, and then it's off on the wind.

I greatly admire St. Augustine, though, and I'm glad that's how your test came out.

St. Augustine ontological argument is proven to be just simple gibberish, you are very deluded. Go out of your social circle, seek, read, think, try to find truth, don't take everything other says as right just because a lot of people believe so...

Um....okay Anon....it was a meme, a quiz, a bit of amusement. Not something I base my life on, or have even given any more thought too.

But thanks for the advice!
