re: #129 Absalom, Absalom, Obdicut

I’ve shown a number of places where you haven’t understood my arguments. Can you do the same with yours? At this point, I don’t think you’ve really got much of a coherent argument left standing, but feel free to give it an attempt.

Really, I get your arguments. They’re not that advanced - they’re basically the same load of bull Intelligent Design proponents used, just abstracted to the Marvel Universe. You seem to fail to understand that I’m arguing that even in a world with more mysteries in our own, it doesn’t mean there isn’t a potential logical explanation, and that making a specific claim as to the answer is hence an inherently inferior argument.

You said that believing, not based on any evidence whatsoever, that all the supernatural beings in the Marvel universe were actually engineered robots made sense as a more scientific assumption.

I thought it was pretty obvious I was inferring that to be one of an infinite number of hypothetical possibilities, not a probable explanation. Do you have a similar lack of understanding of this basic concept when applied to the real world, as well?

Since there would be no evidence to believe that contention, there’s no way that this is any more than a random belief, not actually scientific or atheistic— especially if you define it as you do.

Yes, that was the whole point. That Jinn were robots from another dimension or benevolent creations of “Allah” are equally possible in a universe where anything goes. Kind of takes away any reason to claim a specific faith in such a weird world. In that regard, it’s not much different than the real universe.
