Everyone keeps saying, "oh, he's so humble" and "he cares about social justice" and "he's such a great pope." Whatever. He's just another kiddie-diddler enabler with an invisible friend.

Farking Canuck: UsikFark: I'm not sure why, but for whatever reason, I imagine the sound coming out of that guy's mouth to be the same thing you hear when a TIE fighter flies by.

Is this the appropriate time to start arguing about how you can't hear them fly by in space?

The pilots are making motor and laser noises over the radio. "Zeeeerooooom pew pew pew BROOOOSH."

I was thinking their on-board computers were making the noises to give them some audio feedback as to their surroundings. But the pilots doing it themselves works too.


One of the little details I liked in the Mass Effect universe is that they openly talked about how they had audio emulators for space travel for people watching, because people just instinctively expect sound. They just had computers produce the same sounds for space flight that they would have for atmospheric flights so that people would be more comfortable with it, i.e. for exactly the reason that space flight in computer games and movies so often has sound effects. There's a few scenes where one character or the other talks about turning off the audio emulators to watch ships glide by silently.

I enjoyed that little bit of lampshading.

Hey, now, Star Wars takes place a long time ago...the universe hadn't expanded so much, so space was denser back then, so sound waves can propagate.

It's radio interference from the ion engines coming through your headset.
I took an X-wing out and had a buddy fly by in a TIE fighter to test this out.

Cargo cults shouldn't even place. Yes, they're an extremely strange justification, but at least the phenomenon they're trying to justify actually exists and is observable. That alone puts them above most other groups.

It's just, like, my opinion, man.... but I feel like some religious nonsense is more objectionable than other nonsense.

For example.... "be a good person, God is watching you" is a relatively benign statement compared to "The devil has your child and you you should be afraid and obey us"

I guess I just hate playing on people's fears (that you help create) seems more evil than simply believing an invisible wizard cries when you jack off.

They are the hipsters of made up religions. They made up a religion, state clearly that it is made up, and then follow it  ironically. At least that makes them the most honest religion. To be fair it is more-or-less an excuse to get together and talk about old monster movies, underground comix, and 80's New Wave bands while unleashing nerd rage against society.

There was a Discovery Channel show about two years ago that had people on it who were atheists or agnostics who had stigmata. The show was about what doctors could find out about the cause. They never showed any type of a conclusion of what was going on, though they did determine that it was the patients blood and nothing in their blood looked out of the ordinary. Yes, it was a pretty boring show.

Magorn: ikanreed: All you can say about Francis is that he's less openly evil than the last guy.  The 2000s seemed to be a magnet for evil monsters running large international organizations.

I gotta say I kinda liked his speech that sounded like it came form an Occupy Wall Street Spokesman that he gave to a gathering of vatican bankers.  Extra ballsy because tangling with those folks is rumored to be why John Paul I was only pope for a month. and FWIW his spokespeople are denying that was an exocrcism or any such thing, it's other people claiming that


For now.   When it comes time to Canonize him, some decades down the road, he'll be the Exorcist Pope.

Which is fine.  I mean, who gives a shiat?  If you're catholic then believing the pope's a wizard and that man was demon-possessed isn't much weirder than believing everything else in the Vatican's domain.  The question is are you doing bad things to people who haven't made the choice to take those bad things.

The answer isn't always yes, but it isn't always no, either.

Lets see, RCC has pretty much integrated every native religion it possibly could as it spread... hence it has many sects of made up shiat, and the every present cult of Mary (which was based on Artimis that was granted perpetual virginity after she gave birth.. sound familiar?)  Then you have all the praying to the saints and such (which is just a continuation of the Roman Pantheon of Gods.. just the names of changed).. then you have the fact that they seem to think that when you go to heaven you aren't human anymore and you become part of the devine.. (I guess its how Mary does her multitasking at the speed of the fastest computer in the world now).. etc.  Then you have the black, brown, white, arian, etc Mary's and baby Jesus (I guess it depends on whereever you are born).. then you have transubstiation in which they crucify Jesus again and cannibalize him...etc.   The RCC is WAY out there.

It's as historical as Catholicism.  Just because the RCC's made-up stuff is OLD and was written-down for longer doesn't make it any less made up or any more historical than the made-up stuff now or any better than the stuff that had to be pieced back together from what the RCC hadn't burned and purged.
