Re: Question on PNT from brennakimi

... maybe we can discuss opening a humor forum.
I would suggest that all of EvC is already a humour forum. The only thing about creationism that isn't funny is the fact that they want their jokes taught in school as an alternaive to science.
Who among us should determine what is funny? (without insulting anyone?)
If somebody is offended by the abbreviation "Xian", we won't be able to say anything at all that wouldn't insult anybody.
I actually like brennakimmi's idea, but if we have to do reverse cartwheels in the name of political corretness, I don't think it's worth it. Let's just stick with people saying what they want and the admins slapping those who cross the line.

People who think they have all the answers usually don't understand the questions.

If the topic was promoted, I might take a shot or two (and I've been known to keep shooting as long as anything moves. )
But I barely keep to the Forum Guidelines. I'm not interested in any external rules like, "You can't say this or that." If it's mythical, I'm gonna say it's mythical.
If that's not allowed, I'll be part of the deafening silence.

Understood. Just expressing a (limited) interest.

Re: Simple's Cold Earth Core thread
Wasn't there a topic a couple of years ago where somebody claimed the earth's core was a gigantic diamond? Maybe simple's topic would fit there.

Re: Should Moderators promote their own topics ?
Personally, I have no problem with moderators promoting their own topics. There are probably a lot of members who could produce good topics without moderator input.
However, like the peer review system in science, it's good to have a second opinion about whether or not there's a beam in your eye.

"I'm Rory Bellows, I tell you! And I got a lot of corroborating evidence... over here... by the throttle!"
