Re: Keep the Merry, Dump the Myth billboard

That's a bit vague. I'd be interested in knowing the details. Either way, what I'm talking about is the result if they put up a billboard like that in this country. I think public (and Government) reaction would be rather different. The State Department doesn't like it when Americans openly critici...

Re: Keep the Merry, Dump the Myth billboard

Insulting, maybe... But the simple fact that it's there isn't what bugs me. What bugs me is how differently people would be reacting to it if it were questioning Mohammed instead of Jesus. I wonder if these self-appointed missionaries for Atheism would have had the courage to try that. I suspect no...

Re: Half-Life 2 awarded Game of the Decade

It's not a bad choice for Game of the Decade. I certainly can't think of a game from that decade that's obviously better. There might be some games from that decade that are arguably better, or better depending on taste, or are not easily compared (is Half-Life 2 "better" than Guitar Hero? On what b...

Re: Agnosticism and Me

Where we differ is that I don't accept the premise that the status quo must always be that our perceptions must distort input. It would be like saying humans in centuries past could never imagine the Earth being a sphere because they always perceived it as flat. The farthest I've ever been from the...

Re: Agnosticism and Me

As humans, we can never, ever access that reality. I disagree utterly. A statement like that strikes me as being very limited, especially because by now while we acknowledge a limited understanding of reality, that's hardly binding on the future. I don't see where there is room for disagreement. Ou...

Re: Agnosticism and Me

Agnostic: Someone who only uses one tool in the figuring-things-out toolbox, but at least uses it correctly. :mrgreen: I think what you're comparing to a single tool is actually more like an entire toolbox. Logic, the scientific method, mathematics, these are different tools in a tool box full of t...

Re: Agnosticism and Me

Agnosticism has less to do with the level of certainty, and more to do with definition. In other words, an agnostic believes in Deity, but not according to any particular religion or definition. The only way I've ever heard the word "agnosticism" used in common parlance is a professed lack of knowl...

Re: Agnosticism and Me

Here's a thought this thread has spurred in me: What is the line between atheism and agnosticism? Which of these people are atheist, which are agnostic, and which are theist, and where do you fall on the spectrum, Archangel? 1. A person who is absolutely certain there is no God. 2. A person who is p...

Re: Everyone has a question thread so why not me!

1: What is your name derived from? I feel like it could be a clever twist on the fact that Lawyers somehow "Seek Truth", but I figure they may not be all. There's nothing clever about it, sorry. I registered this name years before I went to law school. I just liked the way the name sounded given th...

Re: Everyone has a question thread so why not me!

Yes.

Yes, I got some comic books at my local store that was doing 40-60% of everything. I'm finally going to read Infinity Gauntlet, something I've been looking to do for a long time.

Re: Metroid for Wii

In Metroid Prime 3 you actually are able to mark your map, but there is also a place where you can have the location of every hidden item marked on your map. :? I like that, actually. It reminds me of the item in Ratchet and Clank that highlights the hidden portions of the map in green so you can g...

Re: Metroid for Wii

Here's a way to improve the Metroid games immensely: once you scan a feature of the environment that requires a special item like the Spider Ball or the Power Bomb, the game should mark it in your map automatically and it should stay there until you've accomplished whatever objective requires the us...

Re: Metroid for Wii

I'm not above using Gamefaqs for a Metroid game. I did it a couple times for Super Metroid. When it gets to the point where it stops being about exploration and starts being about backtracking until you've found the one rock that you can bomb in a room you've already been in, that's when I stop havi...

Re: Metroid for Wii

Beat the Spider Guardian. Another one I've been hearing is one of the hardest ones. I died once, and won with about 1/4 my health left on the second try. So I'd call that moderately difficult but nothing like Boost Guardian who took about five tries. Did I miss something, or is there no way to save ...
