  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Nope. What you are describing is Arianism, condemned as heresy by the Council of Chalcedon back in 451 AD. Who are you, a Visigoth? In Catholic and Orthodox Christianity, the Son is co-eternal with the Father. The Son, the Father...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Charlie, I'm an atheist, but in most forms of Christianity Jesus is God. Like, it's in the name of the religion. Worshiping Christ is what Christians do. It would be an opposite of idolatry....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Update: found it. https://twitter.com/FrogCroakley/status/1215239312104742912...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Offtopic: Charlie, question. You once re-tweeted a series of tweets about alternative Harry Potter books that had names like "Harry Potter and the Stone", "Harry Potter and the Fire" etc and were about a troubled English teenager. It ended with...
  • Commented on Books I will not write: BIGGLES!!
    Hmm. Watership Down, but with raccoons? Blackhawk Watership Down...
  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    Ah, oops. Sorry then....
  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    "There's actually a very simple logic that more than explains the police behaviour: "No need to get killed for a bunch of brown kids." If Uvalde is typical of that part of Texas, the majority of the school and...
  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    Yes, exactly that. The single step from "Elon's estranged father once owned a share in an emerald mine" directly to "Elon is literally a Nazi". Great illustration....
  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    633 comments, and no one has mentioned the eMeRalD mIne yet? Unbelievable....
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    Look, when the population wants a nuclear war, what should a democratically elected government do? :-P...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    I see articles about drone swarms and the software to run them cropping up a lot. How many $20 drones with small munitions would it take to destroy a $500M airplane? 100,000? 1 Million? How many would it take...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    Those calling for/threatening a hot war between the USA/NATO and Russia (including many media/propaganda people in Russia and Russian government spokespeople) should be pithed without mercy, IMO. (Or muzzled and their fingers broken.) Why, do you think talking about...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    I gather there's a good chance that it won't start suddenly. There will be several escalations......
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    This is a defeatist attitude, man!...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    So, am I the only one who started buying supplies? Bottled water, canned food, etc. You know, in case of WW3?...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    >>>People should think VERY carefully about how a somewhat delusional paranoid will react when his fears are confirmed, and direct NATO involvement of any sort would assuredly do that. Well, if they opponent is a madman with nukes, a surprise...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    >>>If yes, then NATO is meaningless. If no, then WWIII for sure. I don't think so. Russian attack in the Baltic state would aim exactly at this, trying to break the alliance. So a vigorous conventional response to a conventional...
  • Commented on Quantum of Nightmares: spoiler time!
    >(that is: is dream time travel call-by-value or call-by-reference)? call-by-cthulhu...
  • Commented on Quantum of Nightmares: spoiler time!
    >>>Upshot: it knocks about 2-5 points off the global average IQ. Civilization adapts to the disruption, meanwhile magic slows down somewhat. You could arrange a global strike in academia. Or legalize weed everywhere....
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    Have anyone here read City by Clifford Simak?...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    This is what would kill the multi-location-home idea, Willing suspension of disbelief! There's no way the planet Earth in a parallel universe is in the same phase of the orbit, or indeed that anything at all in the Solar...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    (The USA obviously tolerates school shooters, since it happens all the time. TPTB don't appreciate having them get away.) Use them to allow the victims to get away. Make a wearable device that activates automatically when detecting a nearby...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Given the choice between nuclear powered submarines and nuclear armed submarines, I know what I'd take (hint: I live in Israel). However, I see how if USA provides the nuclear umbrella, the calculation changes......
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    >>>To a first approximation, a self-sufficient colony on the Moon or Mars will be so saturated in radiation, and so exposed to meteorites moving at 10x bullet speed, that the technology you'd need for the colony to survive any length...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Yes, I know. I'm not talking about these particular submarines. Though, nuclear powered submarines without nuclear weapons are rather pointless, don't you think?...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    >>>it's going to take a very long time All the more reason to start. Also, neither of us really knows how long it will take....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    All this this fucking around with nuclear weapons is another reason why we need to start colonizing space....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Since there is zero legal basis to island building on the open seas, USA (or any other country with enough power) could start building their own islands right next to the Chinese ones, and dare them to do something....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Yet the same technology that makes communication easier can lead to a greater polarization, by allowing a supporter of any ideology to find allies and reinforce themselves. Just look at USA and tell me facebook.com made that county more ideologically...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Just going by "Saturn's Children" text, at the point where biological humanity went extinct, there was not a single legally-human robot on the planet (which is why legislation is impossible - on one can be a member of any parliament)....
