religion, etc

I was at 100% for Thervada Buddhism
Though I do highly praise the Four Noble Truths and
the Eightfold Path of the Buddha, I refuse to submit
myself to any doctrine or written work. As T.E.
Lawrence said (supposedly- from the movie), "Nothing
is written!"

Anyway my other tops at 85% were Universal
Unitarianism, Atheist/Agnostic, and Secular Humanism

I would define myself as a Romantic Agnostic. It's not
that I'm not sure, I just refuse to submit opinion to
that which is proposed unfoundedly. And as for the
romantic part, I do enter the spiritual side when I
look at my art and my life, etc, but I do make it a
point that I never stray from the objective.

But I would never limit myself to the boundaries of
definition :)

Boy am I a pain in the ass about literal language!

I agree sh, zh, and ch should be s, z, and c,
respectively. The s and z should be the ones to become
sh and zh or something like that. But Pinyin is fine
the way it is IMHO- I don't have any trouble with it.

By the way, is the pinyin graph [e] pronounced /e/,
/E/, /3/, /@/, /3`/, /@`/, or what?
