Olivia Character Sheet by RickGriffin Olivia Character Sheet by RickGriffin
If you hadn't caught this character when I was doing prework on A&H club, here's her character sheet now. There's a few things that are incorrect--I think the proper way of writing the surname is with a lowercase "van der", and I'm not actually certain she's a landlord per se (more of a building manager? Or something) but in any case, here she is

How can she be an objectivist and a religion-hopper? Objectivists are atheists.

Objectivism and Atheism are two completely different schools of though (philosophy and religion).
Just figured I might mention that.
You familiar with Ayn Rand's thoughts on it all?

I've read all of Ayn Rand's novels. Ayn Rand was an atheist and considered it as essential part of her philosophy.

Philosophy and religion are not schools of thought; they are subjects. Schools of thought refers to the ideas of a group with a common methodology or academic agenda. Furthermore, religion is included in philosophy, so that means philosophy can have plenty to say on it. Also, atheism is not a religion, it's a lack of belief in god. Atheism can be a tenant or conclusion of a philosophy, and that is what it is in objectivism.

Ah cool I've been thinking about reading those.

:B

I just wanted to interrupt your tangent for a moment. More to the point, I'm just curious as to why the large effort to make the point about a character that's still in its early stages. Not in any derogatory way. Just curiosity. Are these concepts of atheism and objectivism so intertwined that there is no leeway? Also, how deep of a self identifying aspect are these concepts to certain individuals--or is it all or nothing?

If you think objectivists are atheists, you don't know many objectivists

Objectivism is very anti-religion. Is there some school of objectivism I don't know about that thinks religion is ok?

Basically half of the arguments I've seen for objectivism are various reasons why it is not incompatible with religion. It's not the purist perspective but it is the one that tends to have more political sway so they don't alienate other right-wing perspectives.

I think you have a biased sample, because you also just called objectivists right-wing. They're libertarian, not right-wing. If you've only met objectivists who are trying to get in bed with republicans, then that would explain why they would be soft on religion. Normally objectivists are strongly anti-religion.

Okay, you think about it too hard...
Are Objectivists BORN that way? No they aren´t. If she is a religion hopper, how can you be so sure she didn´t try all of these religions BEFORE settleing for Objectivism...I mean, one of the last ones is Agnosticism, basically the "meh, who cares?" answer, it´s only a small step to atheism anyway. And with no listed religion, other then the habbit of having tried alot, I could see it as a past experience before settleing down with what is stated.

It's usually possible to come up with some circumstance to reconcile apparently contradictory information. For example, people sometimes go around saying that the Bible is 100% true even given that the different gospels give very different accounts of major events in Jesus's life. It's possible to invent stories that resolve the contradiction. Or for another example, people have come up with circumstances to explain the reason that Han Solo could have been said to have done the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs, which on the face of it appears to be merely an error on the part of the writers. starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kessel…

My point is that there is something here that requires an explanation and is probably an example of bad research on the part of the author, not that it is an absolutely irreconcilable contradiction.
