  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    Of course having said that, you might like to enquire as to why King Arthur is such a legend and it was necessary to portray the anglo saxons as invading hordes......
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    Uh huh, lets generalise one small area to the entirety of the UK. The stuff about thofsands of bodies only 2% having damage from weapons is more persuasive, except of course that the key point about archaeology is that you...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    You've personally magically searched the entirety of south England in order to prove such graves don't exist? I mean come on man, given how limited archaeological coverage is it's nust to expect to be able to find them. not to...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    Ah well you see the issue there is in tying the various gnostic forms of alchemy together with the different forms, ideas and practises throughout the next 2k years. Suffice to say, it varied, and there's no evidence that most...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    You'll need to bring up the real goal of alchemy, if Charlie doesn't mind the diversion....
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    At the time, Science was theology and some other subjects. Not what we think of as science. Magic was not science. As for sailors and priests, one is dealing with a natural personification or supernatural manifestation, the other isn't, generally,...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Now you're falling for the conspiracy nonsense. Obviously we don't know how many brexiters and nutters are just foreigners pretending to be nutters in order to stir up trouble.... Several people I know went on the march, most of them...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    And yet the angry people who are scared the government will ignore the referendum seem to consist mostly of xenophobic racists who have meetings outside parliament and chant nasty things and threaten MP's and get arrested. Compared to maybe a...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    You do understand that I have two categories there? Maybe they even overlap? Quite a few people who have regretted voting leave have been on various forms of media saying how they misunderstood the EU, or merely protest voted and...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    The % that used it as a protest vote, did it mostly because of austerity. A large % of brexit voters are xenophobes and racists though, thanks to their own inclinations and decades of grooming by the media....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    So there seems a chance of some more rational outcomes now. So I have held off from buying the last food and fuel for the stockpile....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    In case you are wondering, this is the BBC breakdown of how the voting went: Customs union - For: 264 Against: 272 Confirmatory referendum - For: 268 Against: 295 No-deal exit on 12 April - For: 160 Against: 400 Common...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    You're going to have to explain that; last I knew they have just as bad a claim to the Scottish throne as to the English, since the coup in the late 17th century that installed the William of Orange and...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Your post has prompted me to think more about the closure thing. I too don't mind new plot directions, the issue is how well the author segues from one direction into another. In the case of some trilogies, they don't...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    I read an interesting book a few years ago, "The great and Holy War" by Philip Jenkins, which explored how all sides used religion to whip up the appropriate fervour for the fighting and in some ways it became a...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    I got a copy of the Nag Hammadi scriptures recently, translated of course. They are a bit odd and repetitive to modern eyes, but the gnostic stuff that was around 2k years ago is rather different from the Christian theology;...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    You seem to be setting yourself up as the only arbiter of the one true measure of being Christian. That's not how it works....
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Yup, that is quite right. It would also be a good idea to put the conquest of the USA into some sort of context. There were definitely missionaries, but the massacres and murders and so on of the native people...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    There is of course the glaring big fact that many of the rank and file Nazi's who carried out the massacres considered themselves good Christians doing the right thing. "The Nazi's" is rather a big class of people and you...
  • Commented on Deaths and Deadlines
    Ah thanks. That makes more sense....
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    I'm surprised nobody has done a film version of at least part of the Lensman series, since it could be sold as such a tie in with various of the Manly white men saving the worlds and women tropes that...
  • Commented on Deaths and Deadlines
    I admit I have lost track of what HSS means, apart from High Speed Steel. I also have major difficulty trying to comprehend playing with language and obfuscations....
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    The German people were aware of losing the war; increasing starvation and disease across the country led to a loss of morale in both civilians and army men home from the front. There was an attempted revolution after the war,...
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    You're going to have to explain what your gnomic comment has to do with anything on this page, including my post....
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    I recall one chapter in a book discussing the complete failure of German military intelligence, because before they reached Moscow they were fighting divisions they hadn't known existed. Over confidence due to lack of accurate information is a common problem....
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    That would only slightly ameliorate things. Power attracts corruptible personalities and crazed lunatics, so they'd find ways around it. Our lawmakers already get paid reasonably well and get decent pensions....
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    Certainly you don't need to look at Venus to say anything about CO2; we have lab experiments and measurements on earth looking up and in space looking down, which enable us to say almost everything we need to know about...
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    You presume that the people who are anti-Eu and the propaganda outlets are all operating in good faith. Even if the government had bothered to try and deal with the EU immigrants that it was allowed to do so, the...
  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    Slight slip of the keyboard there, you mean the last coal fired power station in Scotland. There are still 9 of them in England, amounting to 14GW output according to the internet....
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Given that 13.8 million people voted for labour at the last election, your comment re. the British public being small c conservatives is clearly nonsense....
