Congrats to the Meta AI team for the achievement.

I was suspicious when playing against it. The bot always wrote complete sentences to me, including correct punctuation and capitalization.
Sheesh, I guess that I'm an AI too! :lol: Maybe something else tipped you off too?

If we're just randomly starting to guess already:

Marie Antoinette?
Marie Antoinette was not a queen regnant. She was a queen consort.

Was she ever queen/empress/princess regnant of any monarchy, or reign with a male title such as king? This question does not refer to regents of a regency.
queen/empress/princess/etc.

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 70

Did this woman ever die? In other words, is this statement true? "She's passed on! She is no more! She has ceased to be! She's expired and gone to meet 'er maker! She's a stiff! Bereft of life, she rests in peace! She's pushing up the daisies! 'Er metabolic processes are now 'istory! She's off the t...

Re: Why does god always whisper?

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:. It is almost impressive how rigidly you cling to your belief system and defend it by blocki...

Re: Why does god always whisper?

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: Why does god always whisper?

Most religions (at least Jews/Christians/Muslims/Mormons) believe in a holy book where people can get their communications from God. No priestly class needed to read those books. Somebody doesn't know their history. For most of history, the Christian priestly class absolutey did hide the bible from...

Re: Proof God is real

You've contributed literally nothing so far. At least Jamiet is arguing for... something at all... This is also a contradiction. ;-) I appreciate this answer. I asked Jamiet because I'd like to know some of his epistemology so I can maybe figure out the best way to engage with him. He's never read ...

Re: Proof God is real

Why are you all always so desperate to link God with hell lol. Are you afraid to face the idea of God on its own so you bring in hell to make it easier to argue against? 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 wit...

Re: Proof God is real

God has given you free will and doesn't want to force your belief in Him (which is a loving thing to do imo) Just the other day I was roasting people alive and felt so at peace with myself knowing that I was doing something so loving. ❤️ After all, I had given them free will at one point in the pas...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 69

Is it the 1st Viscount Melbourne? We have a new Robert the Bruce. Note that Oct probably asked this because the 1st Viscount Melbourne's name was "Penistone Lamb". This is making fun of me for the autocorrect issue last time :razz: :lol: Peniston Lamb, who was famously the only Lord of the Bedchamb...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 68

Did her husband have a knighthood? 13. No. Her husband doesn't have a knighthood and it's not Jane Austin? Then the only person it could possibly be is Hilary Mantel or the Queen Mother, and I don't think the Queen Mother's passion for writing erotic literature is widely known... Is it Hilary Mante...
