From ‘The Philosopher’s Magazine on the Internet’, it’s Battleground God! Give it a whirl. Just don’t do it after a few beers, like your humble host. That was a bad, bad idea.
The instructions – “the aim of the activity is not to judge whether these answers are correct or not. Our battleground is that of rational consistency” – threw me off a bit, dammit. I think this may be why after a couple of years of university philosophy, I deemed it all a big wank, and henceforth focussed with laser-like intensity on holding forth from barstools. More fun than parsing out logic, ’twas, by golly.
Regardless, an amusing diversion. Enjoy.

  1. When I did it a few days ago, I took three hits, but no bullets. I am inconsistent but realistic, apparently. Although I still disagree that belief in God and the Loch Ness monster require different forms of analysis and/or proof.
    Oh, and a Plaster Cast of Bigfoot’s Ass.

  2. A Plaster Cast of Bigfoot’s Ass! A Plaster Cast of Bigfoot’s Ass! A Plaster Cast of Bigfoot’s Ass!
    (Sorry. Damn nervous tic!)

  3. I ran into that link a few months back and I was trying to find it again, thanks. The first time I took it, I came out unscathed.
