    Poll: Re: Free Will

    I've read a little about hat and there was criticism of it for muddying the definition of free will and determinism to reach that conclusion. So, I'm not really sold on that idea. For example,...

    Re: Batman vs Superman Teaser Trailer released

    Well, the idea is that they do get to fight. There is this theme of Superman getting corrupt and Batman stepping in to stop it. That's the impression I got. I take it Batman wouldn't act on a hunch...
  3. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 5 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    I've been reading about ancient cities of Central Asia. I saw some parallels to it. Merv, Balkh, Samarkand, etc. All ancient cities with amazing structures; tens of miles long city walls, palaces,...

    Poll: Free Will

    Do you believe people generally have free will? It is generally defined as the ability to choose how to act. I don't think it is wrong to say that most, if not all, societies are based on the...

    Re: Batman vs Superman Teaser Trailer released

    So, are we gonna have to suppose that in between two films Superman just got rid of his humility that the first film tried really hard to set up?
  6. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    You base this on what exactly? This is perhaps one of the most idiotic claims that I've heard about this issue.

    In fact, in this issue, only the fact that it wasn't a genocide is scientifically...
  7. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    This was pointed out before. This is not the first time the battle is commemorated on April 24. The commemoration often happened in 24-25th of April as a two phase ceremony with the one on 25th...

    Ah, changing your post after I responded to it... On the rest of your post:

    You're trying your best to downplay one case and exaggerate an other. The simple facts remains. Both uses stereotypical...
  9. Re: Je suis Zeon? French cartoonist arrested for anti-Zionist work

    Yeah, people try to justify one wrong when such hypocrisy is called out with excuses like that. It's often quite a good test to see if people genuine about their principal. It's just disheartening to...
  10. Re: Je suis Zeon? French cartoonist arrested for anti-Zionist work

    Two wrongs making a right fallacy does not explain why it's not hypocritical to give special status to one case over others.
  11. Re: There are people who still defend CA's DLC practices and "F2P" model Discussion

    Should have been? Why?

    Barbarian Invasion didn't have all those factions if that was your only reason. Barbarian Invasion had 10 factions. Of those, eight already exists in the base Attila game....

    Poll: Re: Next Total War Title

    Why can't I dismiss Ibn al-Balkhi? Because he is a Muslim as you highlighted so nonchalantly a while ago? Or because I can't find the existence of such a historian from 14th century?

    What's...
  13. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    Except the issue is not one of white vs. black. Turkey doesn't reject a bloody past. The issue is how bloody and one-sided that past was.

    As a person who rejects the Hadith, though you didn't even come up with that as a source, it's normal of me to point out that something you refer to doesn't exist in the Quran. This is specifically...
  15. Re: There are people who still defend CA's DLC practices and "F2P" model Discussion

    None of thee points makes them necessary components of the game.




    So, I guess you couldn't come up with a sensible response. Your analogy seems to be an invalid one.
  16. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    More than 1.5 million Armenians? Oh boy. Though from her I wouldn't be surprised if I heard the 2.5 million figure. Unfortunately, that 1.5 million figure would mean that Kardashian's never existed...
  17. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    Well, this is part of the problem. People blindly rely on their own biased opinions. Right now, you're not even acknowledging a simple fact such as the existence of non-Turkish historians not...
  18. Re: Je suis Zeon? French cartoonist arrested for anti-Zionist work

    If the issue was public's reaction to it, maybe. It would still disregard the fact that the Holocaust targeted not just Jews but gays, Muslims (Bosniaks mostly), gypsies, various non-Catholic...

    If I don't want to answer his question why would I ask him to rephrase it so that we're not lost in a "you meant that, no, i meant this" circle once he doesn't like my answer?
  20. Re: Je suis Zeon? French cartoonist arrested for anti-Zionist work

    We no longer live in a vacuum. This is true for especially the Europeans. We're talking about states that are taken as modern with universal values. Plus, we're not talking about a minor difference...
  21. Re: Je suis Zeon? French cartoonist arrested for anti-Zionist work

    Is it geographical proximity that makes it a particularly important case?
  22. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    You can certainly do that and I would call it what it is, a deliberate attempt to back away from discussing the facts of the issue.
  23. Re: There are people who still defend CA's DLC practices and "F2P" model Discussion

    I don't see why it can't be ok.




    Gaming industry in general does not have fair prices. Would you say that Attila: Total War's price of $50, or GTAV's price of $60 is fair when you take into...
  24. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    What about non-Turkish scholars? Because I primarily base my views on them. They make quite a thorough case of debunking the claims of genocide.




    You seem to understand this issue backwards....
  25. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    I have a few of those books too, specifically two by Ara Sarafian. It's not really treachery to own such books even if one believes in their purpose. Is it treason to be against an official stance of...

    Are civilized world's values consist of revising history inline with forgeries, half-truths and biased opinions for the sake of Christian solidarity?

  29. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    That doesn't answer my question. Let me rephrase it. What's the relevance of what you say to the thread or to the post you replied to?
  30. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    Relevance?
  31. Re: "It is not genocide!!" - Turkey is furious again about international comments of Armenian 'Genocide'

    Truth. Facts. Undeniable. Proven. It's a shame how such words are whored around for petty, biased opinions.

  33. Re: Is Jury Service a right or a responsibility/duty?

    So, they do need a level of understanding of the law. Thanks for agreeing finally. No one said that they need to recite it by heart at moment's notice. Hopefully you're done with this straw man.
  34. Re: Is Jury Service a right or a responsibility/duty?

    What constitutes as manslaughter or murder are not matters of law?
  35. Re: Is Jury Service a right or a responsibility/duty?

    Sigh, you can't claim a charge to be proven by evidence without having an understanding of what the charge actually means, which is a legal construct.

    Re: Iran nuclear talks: 'Framework' deal agreed

    Your link support neither. It has no statement that supports Iran taking actions that threaten to start a nuclear arms race. In fact, it points out that Saudi Arabia practically already owns a bomb...
  37. Re: Is Jury Service a right or a responsibility/duty?

    They do just that. They have to decide if the charge brought by the prosecution is the appropriate one (guilty) or not (not guilty).

  39. Re: Is Jury Service a right or a responsibility/duty?
