This Time On Philosophy Weekly: Science vs. Ethics: What's Wrong With
It's the tale as old as time, "scientific progress" vs. "what's right." On the one hand, we have stem cells and other such biological and engineering works that could potentially improve life for mankind drastically, cure diseases, make man stronger, more versatile...man can literally improve his design. But then you have the other side, and the powerful question, "Who are WE to play God and alter such things?" Should we be afraid of "playing God?" Is there a line? If so, what?

Illegal immigration and drugs.
One of the main reasons why Republicans want to build a border fence is because of all the drugs illegal immigrants are bringing in, and when they do, they generally trample upon the land close to the border. (Continued)

....that I must leave the site for a still undetermined amount of time. This last week I began working long hours at a new job so now I have almost no time to log in WebDiplomacy. That being said, I need to drop from the leagues and also need someone to sit my account for the time being. It is only one game, a TMG Masters game.

I weep and weep at having to leave.... : (

Yup, I'll be next. School starts late September and I will almost certainly have to cut down my chronic live game playing. Wow it'll be like quitting smoking or something. Sorry to see you leave, Steve. Hope it works out. Come back for a live game every now and then in the weekend.

Thanks, guys.And if I can get my hands on a good laptop then problem solved. But it seems unlikely right now.

"Retirements never last as long as you think they will."

my high school teacher showed me this website a few years ago. I am not even the same person anymore. The only two things that are still the same in my life are my mother and phpdiplomacy. or "WEB"diplomacy to all the whipper snappers.
I dont talk to any of the same people or do the same things or wear the same clothes or think the same things.

I couldnt get away from it if I tried.
And honestly I think it's all you folks, I'm not even always in a game.
and I dont even actually know if I like diplomacy.
but I know I cant stop

Thoughts on Determinism.
I am a firm believer in hard determinism, and my beliefs in determinism (and cyclic universe theory) lead me to believe that god does not exist, not vice versa. I assume that there are quite a few people on this site that aren't determinists, so who is willing to argue with me?

How did you first learn about Diplomacy?
One of my History teachers in middle school had our whole class play it. I think we were making two moves a week or so, and his plan was to actually grade us on how well we did. I was Germany and was kicking ass... until someone snuck into the classroom one day after school was out and knocked over all the pieces. Our teacher hadn't written down the positions so the game just ended. It was lame, but some friends and I started playing on our own.

I need help joining games
Hello Developer: The game won't let me join games. Why would that be? I log in correctly, even changed my password, logged out then back in, but when I try to join games the system tells me I am using an incorrect password.

Is there a different password for joining games??? Obviously I am using the corrrect password to sign in, otherwise this wouldn't be happening, so I am confused.

Someone mentioned Diplomacy to me, telling me it's a fun board game. So I googled it, found this community, and in the last 10 minutes I've been looking for the newbie section. I have no clue where to start, which games to join, etc. Where's the newbie section?

Occam's Razor and God
Occam's Razor is a theory that basically says that the least complicated option is usually the correct one. Atheists have been using this theory to state that God cannot exist, because a universe without God is simpler than a universe with God. (Continued)

It would be similar to something similar to the facebook mobile notifications. A way for people without mobile internet to stay connected. Anyone with more knowlege about the plausibility of this should share their opinion.
