  1. I think "we" [read: Global Community] already have the means to...if we could somhow co-operate. There are always going to be countries like North Korea that will happily starve their population and sped money on weapons...until the US decides they are a threat to US Security and forcibly makes democracies out of them. How about you all? Would you support your country going to war against any government that was butchering its own people, or pretend it didn't happen, like everybody did during the Khimer Rouge in Cambodia? (I'm not suggesting the reason behind the war on Iraq was at all

  3. Ok, if that wasn't your intention, then so be it. Call it a misunderstanding. In my opinion, pro-abortion is far more vocally popular than an anti-abortion stance, especially here in Russia. A baby is not self-sufficient. It is helpless. The court of law illustration was in slight mockery of your implied statement that babies are self-sufficient and unborn infants are not. In my mind, they are both helpless, and very much alive. I think that live is sacred, and that society should treasure it more than anything. Society should take better care of orphans, for su
  4. It's called debate. My quoting of his post and answering it is a part of debate - it is called rebuttal. I was over-emphasising the stupidity of his illustration - and its not a flawed debating technique...it correctly invalidates one of his points. No. Yes, it is. Yes, nature seems cruel to us emotive beings. No, nature is not capable of morality. Yes, your point is, like Jayque's, redundant. No, that wasn't his point. His point was "if you think abortion is murder, your a cold, uncaring, immature villian." But this isn't just a thread about abort
  5. I inquired with my better half, and yes, you can have two men/women kiss etc in the Sims, but I'd hardly herald the Sims series as a groundbreaking treatse on portraying serious relationships in videogames... :D But look on the bright side, now I can spend $50 on a video game instead of thousands on real home improvements/shopping sprees etc.
  6. You should. It really is supercoolmegawhoppingubertotallyawesome. I can't find that word in my english dictionary, and yet it seems so perfect for describing AC...
  7. So how 'bout them homosexual video game characters? Actually, maybe Jade Empire doesn't count...Sky and Lian were actually bisexual...like Buch and Atomic. What about Alexander and Hephaestion? I think that relationship was tastefully portrayed...maybe there just isn't a big enough market for such issues as homosexuality to be handled seriously in video games. Side note, it's quite humorous that some of the same people who say "homosexuality is repulsive in a video game" like the idea of being able to lead on multiple woman and sleep with them all, and disgarding/decieving them
  8. Fionavar is a dragon. A green dragon...and quite a reasonable one at that. ...for lizard. EDIT: And she hates spam... EDIT: EDIT: Big, Green, Reasonable, Female, Hates spam... Like the exact opposite of Baley...
  9. I thought you had said you were in a different topic...I may be mistaken.
  10. You mean Ellen? Was it taken off the air?
  11. I removed it...I didn't really understand Drakron's point - it seemed like a strange thing for an atheist to say (I think thats what he said he was... ), and my reply-post was just argumentative anyway...
  12. The media treats homosexuals as if they were invisible? Since when, Steve? The sixties?
  13. We all have our opinions, and I reserve the right to have mine. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Yes, you do. But hopefully my critique of his post will convince you that his argument was not valid. If not, oh well.
  14. Not being able to experience something from one perspective does not negate your ability to make a judgement on it Drakron. Bolded Text: That statement is true, but you have no right or reason to assume I am guilty of this. Besides, your point is just a straw-man argument.
  15. But thats just it...the argument was fundamentally flawed, and many of the points were redundant, as was his choice of wording.
