Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Debate and Discourse: AWESOME POST in "[Skepticism Thread]", by Improvolone
He still hasn't explained why we should treat every ancient instance of someone describing something not known or understood to have existed as evidence for that thing's existence, but not any modern instance.
You... wait... you really think that people back then weren't smart? Like, they couldn't hypothesize, or invent fiction, or do anything impressive basically?
The only difference is that we know more about how the world works and we have more tools at our disposal. Ancient civilizations were brilliant.
So... is all ancient art representative of something real? When did we start inventing fiction? Just how far does your silly goose hole go?
