    "Random people" ??  you mean complete strangers who for no reason whatsoever take the trouble to IM you out of the blue and tell you they know you have alts ?

     

    There's something not quite right about this complaint...

    That is quite blatantly and deliberately untrue - so, par for the course...

    Arkady your sig line has given me a heck of an idea for the name of a mesh clothing business.

    I don't know anyone who has bandwith limits on their internet, I guess that has to do with where you live in the world.

    Quite common in the UK. My limit is 50Gb/month - not normally a problem, but with this bug I could use that in a week, and end up having to pay for all the extra Gb I've used at the end of the month (without knowing I'd used them until the bill arrived).

    Assertion: there is a god.

    Assertion: there are many gods.

    Assertion, we live on a flat disc disc on the back of four elephants, who are in turn on the back of a giant turtle.

    Assertion: the tooth fairy exists.

    ...

    Anyone can play that game, it is meaningless.

    try the Oxford dictionary

    noun

    a statement or proposition which is regarded as being established, accepted, or self-evidently true:

     - the axiom that sport builds character

     - chiefly Mathematics a statement or proposition on which an abstractly defined structure is based.

    +

    you mixing up your axioms and your assertions

    You pick your dictionary, I'll pick mine...

     

    If I don't believe your axiom to be true, then to me it isn't an axiom,  merely an assertion.

     the nature of religious truths


     What is a 'religious truth' ?  How does it differ from any other 'truth' ? Truth is simply a hypothesis supported by evidence. Anything else is mere supposition - how can there be a serious field of study of such a nebulous thing ?

     

    religious truths

    the word truths is used as a polite form by scholars and academics and scientists in all kinds of fields. has to do with the search for truth. in the search for truth any untruths discovered are a by-product of the search. some people like to concentrate solely on discovering untruths. is way more tho who prefer not to limit themselves in this way  

    axiom/rule 1: there is a God

    axiom/rule 2: the Bible is the Word of God
    axiom/rule 1: there is a God

    axiom/rule 2: the Bible is not the Word of God (so is irrelevant to what we do know about what God knows. we know nothing)
    axiom/rule 1: there is a God

    axiom/rule 2: i have a direct phone to God that no one else can see or listen in on


    Axiom: A proposition assumed to be true {my bold} ref: (http://thesaurus.yourdictionary.com)

    And that's where the whole religion thing fails - there is no logical reason to assume any of these axioms is correct, it's all a matter of opinion (and indoctrination).

    why is it on the interwebz that whenever there is a debate about theology someone comes along and wants scientific evidence of a theological statement

    Because without real provable evidence it's just your opinion - no more or less valid than anyone else's baseless assumptions.

    i take it that you do know the difference between theology and science.

    Yes - theology is a set of fables designed to enslave otherwise free minds, whereas science is an attempt to describe the world as it is, not as whoever indoctrinated the 'believer'  wishes it to be.

    Genesis 3:22 : "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil."

    this the fundamental tenet of 3 of the greatest religions ever. don't know why when people who are followers of these seems to wants to make other reasons for why we might do the things we do. God didnt. he put the question to Man and Man choose to accept

    I take it you can prove that claim, with scientific evidence ?  otherwise it's just another hypothesis...

    why is this "Game" so boring? theres litterally nothing to do in it. no goals, nothing. its completely pointless. 

    It's not the game's fault that you don't have the imagination to set your own goals and challenges...
