They could get away with it, no problem, on Doctor Who.

Sure.

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

I think Disney should do a remake with a black Snow White. I'm all for this sort of thing.

So I'm not "trying to make" anything, except "making sense" of what you were aiming to say.
Don't you like stories with an air of mystery?

But you said not. You were suggesting it didn't mean that. And I'm fine with believing you.

I just couldn't figure out what it did mean, then.
You seem to be trying to make something that makes sense look like nonsense. Have you ever been a churchwarden, by any chance?

Re: An act of God

But wouldn't you think that an analogy has to actually "work," Well I'm getting the impression that it works rather too well for your liking. If it was as ineffective as you are suggesting, I doubt you would be putting any effort into discrediting it. While it is a caricature, it isn't too far away...

I'm glad he's back. He was one of the most intelligent posters--except when he gets all PC :wink:
Yes, and it used to be more fun on the forum when he was here before. Although I sometimes got the impression that he didn't altogether approve of the fun.

Re: An act of God

I'm certainly not anti-fenestration. No need to deprive workers of beer and good times. Besides, blaming the football, the gun, and cars may be silly but effective, but at what threat to continuing the Age of Enlightenment, as judged by the reduction of real suffering for huge swaths of folks? I do...

Re: An act of God

Well, H., me old mucker, there are quite a few problems with the analogy, I'm afraid. Yes, the main one being that it doesn't comply with your views on the matter. Besides, I think you are assuming that I am trying to say more than I am. It was only an illustration of two different ways of thinking...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

But if you have any better (read: pragmatic) ideas about equating the strength differential between men and women, I am all ears. Or, maybe you prefer women remaining co-dependent on men, police and society for their safety? *shrug* It's the language you use that makes you sound like a bonehead, no...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

Personally, I'd love to see more women become independent and self-reliant in terms of their personal safety. It's not like men can play protectors 24/7. That's why I taught my fiancé to be violent and self-reliant for her bodily integrity. One wannabe rapist already regrets it. If God created us, ...

When guns kill folks and autos cause accidents, then we can say that footballs break windows.
If a football hits a window with significant force, it will probably break it. Are you arguing otherwise, Walker?

Re: Effect of human activity on climate change is insignificant

And one published paper repudiating 'man made' climate change is also insignificant against all the ones supporting it.
