Re: Is the Bible still relevant -Richard Dawkins BBC1 8May 10:00

Richard is of the camp that says the Bible - well, to be fair - the Kind James version only - is a great work of literature and therefore ought to be studied. I don't completely disagree, some parts of that version of the Bible are prettily written, and I'm all for preserving books if for no other r...

Re: Videogames

I sometimes wonder how we accepted those earlier attempts as being top notch I don't know if we ever really did. Graphics have never made a game good, and very few people have ever hailed a game as excellent because the graphics were the best tech available. Games have in many ways been responsible...

Re: Videogames

Luckily we can't blame FNV on Bethesda. :)

Although FNV wasn't all bad. It just wasn't anywhere close to being as good as F3.

Re: Videogames

I'm mostly an RPGer. Other non RPG games I liked are the Sid Meier Civilization series, as well as a few of the more imaginative Nintendo Gameboy addictions: Harvest Moon, Pokémon (hides in shame), Golden Sun. I have also played games like Dragon Age & Assassin's Creed, but they are not my favourite...

Re: Genetically Modified Food Yes No?

We are suppose to be rational thinkers, just because the green-left movement would oppose GMO, doesn't give an argument to vote the other way. Who said it did? :D If anything I've heard what GM crops are suppose to do/be (Superfood) but as God I want proof. Well yes, but the main thrust of the talk...

Re: Genetically Modified Food Yes No?

I wouldn't consider this a problem with the technology - this is a policy issue. Yes, but you could be wrong all the same. Of course, this decision is 100% to the GM company's commercial advantage. Nobody misses that point. This does not however nullify the fact that there is a real science reason ...

Re: Best Star Trek Series

Kate Mulgrew is very Catholic - as in, she frequently talks about it more so than most actors talk about their faith, but I have to say she's the kind of Catholic I wish all Catholics grew up to be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w397yC3ZKks I think that in general where a Star Trek cultural norm go...

Re: Genetically Modified Food Yes No?

The consensus at the Cork Skeptics talk was that GM is not evil Frankenstein's Monster, but it isn't perfect yet either. It's complex, but the truth about the anti-GM lobby is that by & large they don't have a clue what they are talking about - obvious from comments like "I don't want genes in my fo...
