    Quote from CosmicSpore »

    You say "there is no proof of something like that existing"... yet there is also no proof that it does Not exist.
    Therefore, non-belief in a religion is just as illogical as belief in one.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argument_from_ignorance

    Basically, this is fallacious.

    You're saying that because we can't know something both sides are equally possible to be valid, which is simply not true. This is the basis of all "joke religions" like Pastafarians; since you can't prove that the Flying Spaghetti Monster doesn't exist as much as you can't prove that a god doesn't exist, a god and the FSM are equally likely to be true.

    Think of it as invinsible unicorns. You can believe many things about them, e.g:
    *Invisible unicorns don't exist
    *There are invisible pink unicorns
    *There are invisible green unicorns
    *There are invisible spotted unicorns
    *There are invisible striped unicorns
    *There are invisible unicorns with only 3 legs
    *There are invisible unicorns with monocles

    If you argue that the first option is not the most likely one, I'd like to follow your train of thought.

    EDIT: in fact, the set of possible beliefs is infinite, just a clarification.

    Let's contribute.
    The world is explainable without a divine being right now. If you claim there is one, you have to prove it. There is absolutely no proof, ergo being atheist would be the most rational choice.
    Now I wonder where people find fallacies in this.

    Why are you praising this man as a genius? I've thought mines were an obvious griefing tool since pressure plates were implemented.

    Not, and I think it should have been obvious.

    Why are people so ignorant? Humanity is depressing me.

    ITT: religious retards arguing against common sense. I don't think I'll participate because I'll have to waste my time in hilarious arguments to absolutely no avail. Like, seriously, are you trying to disprove FACTS?

    posted a message on Python an appropiate language?
    I would recommend C++ with SDL and get bashed to oblivion, so I won't. Python seems to be alright for your game.

    posted a message on :P I got IP banned on ROBLOX
    ...and not a single **** was given that day.

    Roblox is one of the few games that could be compared to Big Rigs. I won't even start about the community, you'd probably have more luck playing a proper CS match in a kindergarden than a good Roblox game. Also, I had to install it on 6 computers to get it running; only one instance worked.

    Would not play again.

    posted a message on Minecraft to Sauerbraten
    How/where did you find out how to load Sauerbraten maps? The source was very badly commented and I have been googling for documentation on the map format for ages...
    I really want to port valhalla into MC.

    You cannot. I really hope someone manages to make it work with full maps.

    You need to edit most files, standard paths will not work.

    This time I'm not calling it YAOSMME or anything, I haven't found a name.
    By the way, it's 3D. Yay OpenGL.

    C/python Source: http://www.box.net/shared/u57obkca7x
    Last tested, working version (python + windows executable): http://www.box.net/shared/274xj2n6ai

    And here is the replacer in python: http://www.box.net/shared/ycrd66su9a

    You need python 2.6 for both, except if someone would be so kind and py2exe the release.

    My map editor can currently edit 1 chunk at a time and is Windows-only, but I guess someone could optimize a lot and/or add multi-chunk editing. I've stopped trying to work on it.
    The raeplacer (no typo, I was creative enough to find this name :Pig: ) is a small tool I made for fun, e.g. replacing all water with lava or all dirt with solid diamond.

    Screenie(s) and pic(s) of the map editor:


    There are some bugs with the lightning; in Minecraft it does not recalculate light values except if you use lots of torches.

    So yeah. Comments are welcome, constructive criticism is welcome too but will be ignored because I'm just giving out the source to the community so you can make something good out of it. I fail at finishing projects.
