    It would be insane if it hadn't been shown to work on one occasion.

    Let us make that occasion a fluke, so this can go back to being insane.

    The roll of the craps dice is random, but you will never roll a 14.

    Just because something has constraints, doesn't mean it isn't random.

    Doesn't sac without the k derive from the french?

    I might be wrong, but I always thought that it was a foreign borrowing, even when used for anatomy.

    You really have to use the P because that's the only way you make a word with "SA_"

    Unless you play a relaxed rule with foreign borrowings and abbreviations.

    That's a thambly gesnuggins.

    The only ones I can think of are 'grok and 'quark.'

    Yeah, I'm ambivalent about putting solar panel farms in places where you could put actual farms or forests. However, putting them in deserts is probably less impactful, as well as more efficient. ...

    Not just Greece, but also China and India.

    In all places where it arose, it was more or less dismissed or overwhelmed by dominant social forces, which were more conservative. Perhaps rational...

    I saw Duel to the Death a classic B Kung-fu movie. 10/10

    The plot summary does not do justice to this gem. A martial arts competition between China and Japan is complicated by the presence of...

    My opinion on this manner is that Agnosticism is lumped together with Atheism because religious leaders regard both as threats to their power.

    They might call you a 'Heretic' for the same reason.
  12. Tell me, do you believe Jesus was literally...

    Tell me, do you believe Jesus was literally crucified, died, and resurrected? Or were those story elements simply borrowed from another source, as you seem to have no problem with the flood being...

    I believe I did read that in college. It is a fine scholarly work for what it is. There's a bit of a difference between catalogueing something (which is fine, useful and good) and fully exploring...

    So, two galaxies colliding doesn't qualify as a glitch? I suppose to define what a 'glitch' would look like, one would have to first define what the 'purpose' of the universe is.

    Seriously: Why can't Trump be a stupid person who's gotten very good at one thing?

    The world is full of them. It couldn't function without them. A stupid person who works hard and masters a...

    I was using it as an illustrative example not an implication that this is what all christians believe. It was an example of the SORT of "new" christian idea that commonly comes up: merely a retread...

    I've seen a few new things on here recently.

    Excreationist drew our attention to a "new" chronology for Noah's flood. Unfortunately, there's nothing new about christians changing the timeline...

    Holy Fucking Shit.

    Just look at everyone he's connected to. This is the scandal of the century.

    Well, you could start by convincing other christians to believe as you do, before you expect non-christians to take you seriously.

    As an architect, I have to wonder what the significance of a lack of architectural evidence for someone is? Are we to doubt the existence of anyone who didn't build a building?

    And I myself have...

    I never refused to engage with a point of view that was a majority perspective in a different country. Which country are we talking about?

    Also, I have to draw a distinction between an argument...

    By refusing to back Darroch, Johnson effectively sided with Trump. All the British press and even some cabinet ministers are saying so.

    Because you are claiming that one person's bodily autonomy is less important than another's life. Even if I yield to your argument that a fetus is a person (I do not), I have every doubt that you...
