    Re: On the morality of evolution

    Sniping at individual processes (gradual, not spontaneous) is hardly a good-faith way to address the issue. Plausibility can only be leaned on as far as you don't look into the details, since it is...

    Re: On the morality of evolution

    A most certainly convenient answer to avoid (or at least deflect) many issues, but unsatisfying and narrow as ever especially in the scope of reason this thread seeks to address.

    Re: On the morality of evolution

    Evolution is not a moral subject, or at least not moral in the sense it can be controlled by civil or societal bodies in a meaningful way. Rather I would say it is an inevitability; as nature itself...

  27. Poll: Re: Which feature would you most like to see in Rome Total War Remastered?

    Upgraded campaign script at the moment. Can't share the sentiment for replenishment; but I've long tuned my gameplay to account for not having it and now everything later feels cheap.
