Please give a one sentence description of your terminal values

For the greater glory of God

Oh, in that case you have definitely made an error. I mean... seriously. Have you read your Bible? I hear even Catholics let the commonfolk read those now. There is all this stuff about "being a light to the world" and even more about spreading your seed and reaping tenfold (convertin' folks). Instead what you are doing is making yourself look like a jackass and reflecting negative glory to God. That and giving people the distinct impression that temptation to convert to a religion may be a sign of mental illness.


This post is for sacrificing my credibility!

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Don't worry, there won't be future posts like this, so you don't have to delete my LessWrong account, and anyway I could make another, and another.

But since you've dared to read this far:

Credibility. Should you maximize it, or minimize it? Have I made an error?


Don't be shallow, don't just consider the obvious points. Consider that I've thought about this for many, many hours, and that you don't have any privileged information. Whence our disagreement, if one exists?
