"just replace the word with another group you disapprove of" is an argument that you really don't want to start making because there's always a group who you would want to exclude. Frankly, I don't see why convicted fraudsters, paedophiles, murderers, etc. who've served their sentences should be de...

How about: I do not want to provide my services to paedophiles. I can't see many people in modern society disagreeing with the sentiment behind that statement, yet it's exactly the same as the other two. No, it isn't the same as saying "I will not provide services to black people" or "I will not pr...

I have a neat little trick to help me sort out situations like this. When one group wants to be allowed to exclude people from another based on religion, sexual orientation, etc, you simply take their sentiment: I do not want to provide my services to homosexuals. Then replace the group they choose...

Rather than saying "Because I believe it patently is not true in any literal sense whatsoever", which (along with believing homosexuals do have equal rights) I think are his actual views, he comes out with some fudged marshmallowyness about how it would 'lessen Creationism to teach it as just a the...

Careful now, EmmVee. Those that get into politics are not always smart or skilled, but they always share one trait: The HUNGER for power. They want to make the laws that we all abide by. Some do go into politics because they want to make a difference on a political issue - so the power thing is a m...

Interesting point of view. I guess you consider the collapse of Communism in the Eastern Bloc to be a backwards move for society - after all, it led to a massive resurgence in religion. Politics and religon. Ah yes, when the two get combined, the politics tends to take over from the religion. Doesn...

Okay, so Asia is massively diverse from an ethnically cultural point of view, but still, in the literal sense of the term, there's absolutely nothing inaccurate about calling them Asian. Nope.

Not sure about the fate of Cyclonus and Scourge if T2006 doesn't happen. I've got this idea that two timelines get anchored together by the normal timejump process (hence why the same amount of time passes for Rodimus as it does for Galvatron). So maybe they only arrive in the past of the Target 20...

My personal theory is that it's an divergent timeline which diverges at the point Unicron snatches the Rhythms of Darkness Galvatron. In the post-Time Wars future stories, we see that Rodimus and co ended up in a future not unlike the Rhythms of Darkness one. And the Galvatron we see in Perchance to...
