Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

it would be easier if you knew his job :razz: We spent a lot of questions on that. Maybe we should have started with more generic questions, but it's certainly not a job we've encountered before. Maybe he was an insurance salesman specialising in policies for lobster fishermen. Are there any famous...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

Ah, so he was a kind of Spanish Nelson who made his name in some Imperial squabble in the Americas where a bunch of Brits turned up, got sick, and left?

Not the most well known of historical figures, but he does seem to definitely qualify. The game needs a few trickier ones.

Si, Senior!

Finalising the Reconquista, financing Columbus, and establishing the Spanish Inquisition are to her account.
She established it? I never expected that

Re: Video Games

Yeah, shit can happen in a big way very quickly with Stellaris if you're unlucky. The biggest failing is the long periods of time where nothing much seems to happen at all. You just sit there thinking that making the universe as big as possible may not have been such a good idea after all as the onl...

Re: Proof Leprechauns are Real

I think they have to look Irish and wear a green jacket too? I'm dusty on Irish mythology. How does one look Irish? They have been depicted wearing various items of clothing over the years. The popularity of green is merely that currently favoured by the media. The only things generally agreed upon...

Re: Video Games

Witcher 3 is up there with FFVII on the all time greats list.

Recently I've been mostly playing Stellaris... which is one of those games that just falls short of being a classic

Let's just note for future reference that Jamie believes that a race of short sentient lifeforms is impossible. Do you have membership of the flat earth society, by any chance? ;)

Ditto, mate. So glad that you took the time to respond to Deuteronomy 29:19-20 and how it isn't relevant to this thread rather than completely ignore it and even cut out that reference from the reply quote.

For once, Octavious, I completely agree with you! Of course, the bible is loud and clear in telling us not to follow our own moral compass: Wow... you've literally listened to nothing anyone has said :razz:.

Re: Proof Leprechauns are Real

Well, clearly they exist in your mind and the minds of millions of others. The word "Leprechaun" conjures up a shared mental image in the way the word splarent doesn't. You may well meet one in a dream, and the question becomes how real is a dream? And in a universe as vast as ours, ignoring for a m...

Priests are like lawyers. There's nothing to stop you from doing the work yourself, but at the end of the day they provide a useful shortcut. And, also like lawyers, they have a tenancy to use fancy language that's hard to understand and a lot of them are crooks. Well, this seems closely related to...

Re: What makes your life worth living?

Christianity is a very catholic religion. The Catholics, ironically enough, not so much. A great many Christians don't have any belief in original sin

It seems a big part of the whole Christian thing. I know you're not a Christian but as an atheist we regularly have to put up with Christians warning us we'll go to hell. Regularly? You're going to the wrong sort of parties, mate. I don't think I've ever been warned I could go to hell, other than i...

Because an atheist who grounds their views in evidence-based reason will NEVER assert something as an absolute immovable truth without a damn good foundation of verifiable evidence. The delusion is strong in this one :razz: I'm afraid life doesn't work like that. Looking at the evidence is a good r...

Re: Proof God is real

Either he has chosen not to reveal himself to me, or he is not omnipotent, or he does not exist. In what way would it be advantageous to God for you to know He exists? There must be the possibility of doubt for faith to have any meaning. There has to be the possibility of God's non existence for hu...
