the obscurantist version

I keep getting all these personality profile forwards on MySpace, with questions like: "bacon bits or croutons?" or "7th Heaven or The OC?" or whatever.

So I am making up one with questions about stuff that actually interests me. It's not really obscurantist if you share a lot of my interests, I just thought that was an amusing name. So here we go (with my answers):

THE OBSCURANTIST PERSONALITY QUIZ

Section One: Theology

Calvin or Luther? Calvin
N.T. Wright or John Piper? N.T. Wright
Wayne Grudem or Catherine Clark-Kroeger? Kroeger!!!
Rick Warren or Brian MacLaren? Ugh, neither.

Section Two: Food

Bacon or sausage? Bacon. Mmmm. Bacon.
Satay or sushi? Satay.
Cilantro or parsley? Parsley. Cilantro is an infernal weed, the very vegetation of hell.

Section Three: Philosophy and Literature

Plato or Aristotle? Aristotle, if I must choose.
Sartre or Camus? Camus
Hemingway or Faulkner? Faulkner
Dostoevsky or Tolstoy? Dostoevsky
Austen or Dickens? Austen

Section Four: The Civil War

Section Five: Other

Stout or lager? Stout
Red or white? Red
Lyle Lovett or Robert Earl Keene? Oooh, that's tough. Lyle Lovett, for today.
Mac or PC? Mac, of course.

Feel free to copy and forward this with your own answers. It will be more fun if you append some questions of your own at the end. :)

WHAT. Cilantro is the best. And last time I checked, it doesn't bleed and cry when you break it as proper hell-vegetation should.
