    Actually these three suggest to me that you have no objectivist view of morality whatsoever, which coupled with divine command makes sense.

    45% nihilist is not average. I think most people would not get over 30% nihilism with those questions. Anybody who gets over 40% is a nutter. Welcome to the club.

    Here's my rather bizarre results :

    (Scored as Kantianism)

    Kantianism 85%
    Nihilism 70%
    Existentialism 70%
    Utilitarianism 65%
    Justice (Fairness) 60%
    Hedonism 50%
    Apathy 20%
    Strong Egoism 0%
    Divine Command 0%

    Look not above, there is no answer there; Pray not, for no one listens to your prayer; Near is as near to God as any Far, And Here is just the same deceit as There.

    And do you think that unto such as you; A maggot-minded, starved, fanatic crew: God gave the secret, and denied it me?-- Well, well, what matters it! Believe that, too.

    "Did God set grapes a-growing, do you think, And at the same time make it sin to drink? Give thanks to Him who foreordained it thus-- Surely He loves to hear the glasses clink!" Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

    Mostly hedonist with a lot of existentialism and utilitarianism. Which is pretty much how I'd describe my philosophy, honestly. Epicureanism, with a whole lot of existential ideas about the meaning or value of things around us, and utilitarian ethics.
    Or as my religion advises (but not demands): "An it harm none, do as ye will."

    I don't really "Follow" any philosophy, which sounds like following a religion (the notion of "following" a philosophy is absurd IMO), as every philosophy has its pros and cons. Of course there are philosophies you tend to agree more with than others ( I guess I like skepticism, but it wasn't in the quiz ) Also I don't really like the quiz, many questions have multiple premises. For example: I always try to follow the laws of my religionís holy scriptures.
    I would do this.... IF I had a religion. But since I have no religion, there are no holy scriptures for me to follow!
    And: Pleasure should play a central role in our lives.
    I agree with this, but I don't think of pleasure in the purely hedonistic way but in the epicurean way...

    O well, here we go!

    That was pretty fun if a bit unsurprising, lol.

    Hmmm on my extensive knowledge over philosophy aquired throughout the means of Wikipedia (LOL), I always thought myself more of an utilarian. Wonder what Wiki has to say about that ...

    Atheist 4 life it seems hehe.
    You have a certain mentality, a "you vs them" and i know it is hard to see, but it is only your imagination which makes up enemies everywhere. I haven't professed anything but being neutral so why Do you feel the need to defend yourself from me?. Truly What are you defending? when there is nobody attacking?
