I would like someone who has read a few of the things I have posted tell me what kind of an 'ist' I am.

Harv tells me that even though I claim to be a Platonist, I am really not because I agree with Kroneker and disagree with Cantor on the issue of infinity.

You have an interesting discussion going on concerning the differences between theists and atheists. I would love to join in, but I don't know what side I am on.

Does using the label 'god' to refer to consciousness (as in Dick's 'subsconscious' or Aurino's 'TOM' or my posited first cause) make me a theist? Does my contention that 'god' is finite and limited disqualify me as a theist and make me an atheist?

I have a feeling I am trying to fit my hand into a shoe. I don't think there is an 'ism' which describes my beliefs, unless one of you can tell me what it is. Please do.

Warm regards,

Paul
