Is Christianity a retelling of pagan stories? NO. 57 Morality and Religion 2/6/15 11:44pm
anonymous attributes
Then answer this: why is "Jehovah" in the KJV six times? Because if "Yahweh" is a problem, then "Jehovah" (which is YHWH with the vowels of @DNY) is much more of one, as it incorporates an error. And don't say that "Jehovah" is more correct, as in addition to deliberately "wrong" vowels, the choice of letters leads to errors like thinking that /d3/ and /v/ phonemes were in the original word, ...

Actually, not quite. The reality is a bit more nuanced, thanks to a Hebrew reading principle called qere. 1. (yodh - he - waw - he) is the sequence of Hebrew letters according to their names. This can be rendered YHWH or YHVH, the difference is not all that important for our purposes. Gesenius suggested the transliteration Yahweh, and it is widely used in the scholarship. 2. In Hebr ...

Wutchu Think About Zero Suit Samus? 12 Super Smash Brothers 2/1/15 10:41pm
Alex Arkas
The Zero Suit is what Samus is seen wearing when she's chillaxing in something other than a military uniform or civilian clothes, and/or mentally unable to will the Power Suit into existence. Anyone who's played Zero Mission knows that while she's quite agile without the Suit's mobility features, she's actually not all that comfortable fighting in it, with the Paralyser being little more than a " ...

An ordinary Japanese Stunfisk, back on White. I've gotten some shinies and some foreign Dittos and whatnot - but the Stunfisk certainly ranks as my best, because it became useful.

Egg move...but it learns it level up. :/ 3 Pokémon 1/28/15 11:39pm
Main Page Nitemare Headba
Oddly enough, certain Pokemon have egg moves that are also in its levelling set; what it does is make it easier to put that move on a hatchling, due to the rules of moveset breeding: -If the move is an egg move, then only one parent needs to have it. (Before Gen 6, this had to be the father.) -If the move is a levelling move but not an egg move, then both parents need to have it (or els ...

Logic Game: Transgendered People 236 Extended Discussion 1/30/15 12:56am
Jeff the Kitten
...I'm pretty sure I just said something like that. But read on, because "gender and sex are not the same entity" is something for which sourced evidence exists... but not necessarily as you would. You can accept that your behavior is typically masculine without having your v****a cut up and reshaped to look like a p***s and ball sack. An arbitrary "you," perhaps, since personally that's an ...

Actually, I do find it reasonable to think that both cannot occur together. The latter (refusal of treatment) is certainly not uncommon. But "happy to have cancer" is a wild stretch of imagination, better left to the tabloids. (Note in this case the happiness comes from being vindicated in his belief that it WAS cancer - and he certainly did want it removed.) And no, I'm not considering ...

To clear up a misconception here: I'm opposing the notion put forth by OP that all gender dysphorics should be put on a regimen of anti-psychotics and conversion therapy. If I seem otherwise, it's not my intent. But yes, actually, getting "pumped full of crazy pills" is a bad thing, considering some of the things those drugs can do to a person; it's not something I'd wish on anyone. As fo ...

Logic Game: Transgendered People 236 Extended Discussion 1/30/15 12:56am

That would involve the World Health Organisation's definition of gender: the social construct by which psychological and behavioural traits are assigned into categories based on a given society's stereotypes and ideals for a given sex. Gender dysphoria is the recognition that one's own traits tend not to conform to those assigned by society for one's own sex. It is not a delusion, by definit ...

I'll voice the concern as well, but (for purposes of this thread) on different grounds: the OP's final premise is that his (I still doubt that they're yours, as much as you want to take credit of them to your own disservice) proposed alternatives promote health and happiness in transgender folks better than conventional HRT / SRS therapy. Specifically, the method of action of anti-psychotics ...

First, the broken format of your first post suggests a copy/paste, for which you give no source. Second, there is no "logic game" here, just a number of statements. The first "problem" depends largely on the quality of care involved in the SRS and the individual transsexual. As for phantom limb syndrome, that passes with time. Infertility is not at all a problem, however; as all of these " ...

Can you convert me? 31 Morality and Religion 1/28/15 5:13pm
Funnycn
Conversion is a from-to process; without identifying what you would be converted from, challenging people to convert you is fruitless. A clue might be found in your specific wording: "Probably not because it's all lies!" Your pronoun lacks an explicit antecedent; however, there is an implicit antecedent, which is whatever member of the set {x: x is a belief-system} is chosen by an arbitrary ...

Warriors 4 Gaming Discussion 1/23/15 10:46pm
The Second Choumaru
Actually, not yet. We have Pokemon with Nobunaga's Ambition, in the format of a strategy-RPG (Pokemon Conquest, or under its less subtle Japanese name Pokemon + Nobunaga no Yabou.) Samurai Warriors is Nobunaga's Ambition with the gameplay of Dynasty Warriors (but not a crossover; the crossover between these two is called Warriors Orochi.) Though Pokemon can potentially carry itself as a ...

What's the worst moment you ever had 5 Fighting Games 1/23/15 6:43pm
Ecchi Nicky
First time playing SFII' Turbo when it was the new thing in the arcade. I'd picked Ryu, and had just gone through 23 rounds all perfect, and working on the last round vs. Dictator. Guy walks up to the cabinet, pops in a couple quarters. With two pixels - TWO PIXELS - separating my Air Hurricane from the last sliver of its target's health, the guy hits his side's start button and ends the ru ...

Koei-Tecmo says they'd be open to more "Musou" cross-overs. 29 Gaming Discussion 1/25/15 9:09am
smashbrolink
So now that we know Koei is open to the idea, are there any other Nintendo franchises you'd like to see get the Hyrule Warriors treatment? Also, would you play a Mario or Pokemon Musou game, if it came to be? I know I would. Playing as Mario in a Musou game would be a novel experience.XD Koei's worked with the Pokemon franchise before (Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition / Pokemon Conques ...
