Mathilda May clones would be acceptable.

sat1va: What you're calling baseless speculation is what "science" calls logic.


Science is about what is repeatable and testable, not what is logical. Often times, logic can be useful to scientists. However, testable predictions and repeatable results are science. Arguments constructed logically are philosophy, not science. There is nothing wrong with either logic or philosophy, of course. They are just separate from science. "Science", at its root, means "knowledge". Not guesses. Not even good guesses. Not even logical guesses. Is it "logical" that water, at sea level, boils at 212 degrees F? It's certainly testable and repeatable. Is it "logical" that a bowling ball and a feather will, in vacuum, fall at the same rate? It's testable and repeatable. That's why science and logic are not synonymous. Appealing to Logos is a rhetorical device, not a scientific one. Ah, who am I kidding? Nobody cares what words mean any more.

Right, it's a "new" species, it's never been observed out of the water, but they "know" it evolved to live out of the water, then re-evolved to live back in it? Yeah, that's a lot more likely than it just stayed living in the water in the caves. Why is there so much baseless speculation in "science" these days?

So - has anyone been playing the new XCom? I kinda like it, I guess. They took out a lot of the repetition in the missions, but also took out a lot of the complexity in between-mission planning. The campaign seems a lot shorter.
