    Sorry bout that,


    1. A question for the ages.
    2. Is what you do make who you end up being?
    3. Does what you believe in religion effect who you are?
    4. Is it possible to be something better than what your doing/believing, even when it is trying to make you become something different than you wanted it too?
    5. Am I likely to be a better person in certain fields of work, or a worse person in other fields?
    6. If I am a pig farmer, what does that make me as a person?
    7. If I perform abortions, what does that make me?
    8. If I provide the lethal injections to criminals what does that make me?
    9. If I clean up dead animals from the road ways, what does that make me?
    10. If I am a banker who's job it is to foreclose on people, what does that make me?

    2. You do what you do because of who you are.
    3. No, but it greatly affects who I am.
    4. I absolutely hope so.
    5. Most of the time, no. But if the choices are murderous dictator versus hospice nurse, then yes.
    6. Not kosher.
    7. A doctor, ideally.
    8. A doctor, ideally.
    9. Likely someone with good forearms.
    10. A banker.

    How could it not?

    What you think and do IS who you are.

    That is one messed up opening post.

    In short you pretty much are what you do, and that is not always the same as what you believe.

    This gets really complicated very fast. Does your existence in itself exist? Sadly we are limited by language ,the very thing that allows us to think, as to how deeply we can think and because of this none of this can be answered.

    If a tree falls in .... wait ... If a guy says something while alone in the forest, and no women are around, is he still wrong?

    Sorry bout that,







    1. Sure this is the question most can't even fathom, even after reading it.
    2. Its way over their heads.
    3. Do all choices in life come with certain proven ramifications?
    4. If I were a embalmer, would I be presupposed to having no pity to death, or the dieing?
    5. Embalming would be my gig, and the more I embalm the better my pay, so after awhile I would be numb to death, and suffering, wouldn't that make me into something I may have not planned on?
    6. This is in-fact a very deep subject, and not for the weak minded.
    7. Take caution folks.

    1. Run along, this could be painful for you.
    2. Don't blow a fuse.
    3. You might hurt yourself.
