Philosophy, culture, logic and history.
Thousands of years of trial and error between competing mores and the necessary continual refinement that comes from such exchanges offers us insight. It is...
Nah, remember the guy she married had a missing leg and all that.
Have you never seen that movie step-brothers? Same thing.
A brother in law is when your sister gets married, her husband becomes your brother in law. Or if you marry a girl, her brother becomes your...

Only if you're willing to admit that God is not timeless.
If God is timeless then predestination is essential.
No different from every religion that ever existed, currently exists or will...
She was a constitutional monarch with very little money or actual power for a planet with a small population. The reason the trade federation chose Naboo (other than the Palpatine connection) was the...

From God's perspective sin already existed, ipads already existed: everything always existed. God being timeless.
Ok, go on. Where else does God reveal himself?
To burn in a lake of fire for...

Sin/evil-acts are still phenomena, they exist in what God created.
....and how does he show it? In one book? What about the thousands of other religions/books, making different claims?

Being a threat and being reality are not mutually exclusive.
God being the ultimate source of all things he is also the source of all evil. Whether he is the direct source or the vicarious...

When the offer of "love" is accompanied with a threat of infinite torment that is cruel, regardless of one's definitions.
It's even worse than being threatened with a gun, because a gun is merely...

So America has so many shootings because Obamacare sucks proverbial balls?
That's probably true.

They claim their religion to be the original and yours is the copy, with the same credibility. Or rather, because we have their writings that predate yours: they have more credibility than your...
Thankfully it wasn't a drawn out reunion, they may have cut it a bit short I agree, but the alternatives weren't great, they kinda wrote themselves into a corner and did their best, but on the whole...
Christianity was USED to promote and excuse slavery.
A superficial distinction I agree, but a distinction nonetheless.
Oh my God, wow, wow, that's a great idea. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes.
I wish I knew how to mod.

What'chya gonna do?
He can do what he wants, nobody can stop him, or his cronies.

Of course anecdotes make no difference. If anecdotes, of the type you cite, were valid then we'd all have to be Hindus, Muslims, Catholics, Evangelicals, Raelians, Buddhists, Druids, Scientologists...

American gun culture is weird. But there's no way to change it: Changing laws concerning gun ownership is monumentally stupid, on par with prohibition, guns are already dangerous, to drive them...
I have said that I'm and agnostic-atheist like a billion times.
The vast majority of agnostics are atheists, technically, but won't admit it usually due to the stigma associated with the atheist...
I do not: I am an atheist.
You may not care all you want, but that doesn't make me any less or more of an agnostic.
Religion is a complicated thing in Japan, having been so muddled with...

While I did study calligraphy in school and college, which included old Irish and Latin (from the dark ages, which we ironically call Ireland's golden age), I never actually learned its meaning. As...
No it doesn't, plenty of Buddhists are atheists and plenty of them have anti-scientific/supernatural beliefs, same for people who believe in UFOs, ancestor worship, certain forms of animism, Big-foot...

Well limitations are obviously required, like using the Old Testament/Iliad as a source, except the Lebor Gabala Erenn is further de-legitimized due to the additional thousand...
Even with the supernatural nonsense it's a fantastic story. The divine beings are like sprinkles, they're not key to the whole thing.
Capitalism with a degree of social security/welfare is a good compromise.

Re: Freedom of Movement between the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand should be a given - but it's not.
It's funny that South Africa was left out because the most English person I know is from South Africa. He's so English he can use "spiffing" in a sentence without needing to be sarcastic or ironic,...

Can two factions be programmed into the one settlement? Maybe the Tuatha De Dannan could be like rebels and then if unrest gets too high for them the Fomoire rise up and so on? The eternal war...

Natural immunity is a great defense against polio, sure.
If self determinism in the pursuit of self destruction is so important: perhaps a compromise might be reached by quarantining such people...

After playing Atilla over the last few days: It's perfect for Warhammer, just a few skins, a new map, a few new skeletons and some animations and hey presto a perfect Warhammer total war game. ...

Would you like an example?
"What I have done is to show that it is possible for the way the universe began to be determined by the laws of science. In that case, it would not be necessary to appeal...

I have never asserted that the Universe was made out of nothing, that is what you claim. You claim that God made everything out of nothing, that is the precise position that I am arguing against.
In the Killing Joke he admits that he has made up his back story so many times he can't remember which one is true anymore. It's likely he will forget this storyline too, his actual back story is...
The atmosphere rotates with the Earth. And we are flung along with it.
Think of a swimming pool on a cruise ship, the ship moves at 50 km per hr. You don't have to swim over 50km to reach the other...

Yes, a claim needs to be supported. All claims.
That is a baseless and arrogant assertion. Not only about the nature of reality, but also to claim to know the minds of strangers: It's the...

The default position (on all things) are ignorance and unbelief. Having a position and taking a position are two different things, the latter is an action, the former is not necessarily an action....
February 18, 2015, 02:51 PM
That is an atheistic philosophy of sorts, but it is still not shared by all atheists. Atheism is not a philosophy, just as theism is not a philosophy. They are single positions on a single topic,...

Isn't mixing up English and French people a bit racist?
February 18, 2015, 07:28 AM
Well if you consider Warhammer as an experiment, it offers the ideal playground for testing flying units (think blimps, bi-planes etc.) and there are steam-tanks in warhammer too. It's quite clear...
Yup, they're one of the hardest factions...... and rightly so, especially at the start of the campaign, they're technically supposed to exist only in hiding, spending a hundred years planning their...
Yup: scripts are essential. Besides AI (by definition) is a series of complex scripts anyway: duh. This is just a few cut corners, in a way. With every update, however, there is a great improvement...
Surely it'd make more sense if it were more of a Necromunda style game, with all of the same mechanisms you've listed.
Another space marine game is far from ideal. It's almost impossible for a game...
