I'll have some of the cardamom cake and rose ice cream, please. Congrats, Central Kadigan!
It would be a great improvement if we lived in a world where weighing arguments and considering whether they are convincing were the default approach.
In the experiences of many people, questions about religions aren't even framed as philosophical open questions, which an individual is free to weigh according to their merits. There's a lot of pressure coming both from inside some belief systems, as well as from social factors. Freedom of religion as a human right, which includes the right to being free from any religion, as well as the right to choose and practice a religion one has no prior experience with, is interfered with by all sorts of advantages and drawbacks.
Personally, in the matter of religions, I don't even consider the question of people being convinced of/believing this or that to be the most important. Okay, a person believes/doesn't believe X... And then what? What do we do? How do we live? How do we feel? Are we happy? How do we interact with others? Do we make others afraid and hurt them, or do we lessen fear and pain? Do we lie to ourselves and others in our everyday interactions, or can we tell the truth? Do we burden our lives or do we free them? Will we be sad, remorseful, afraid, or content and light of heart, once our life is over and we die?
How do you remember changing your mind about something-or-other?
Next chapter: I used to believe... nature edition.
Haha, no worries about accidents. I've on occasion managed to mess up much more efficiently: quoted from own post, got distracted by phone call or something, edited past post instead of new one, contents of old post vamoosed.
All those buttons are designed awfully close to each other. Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system.
Hello all. It has been a while since I dropped off the news from XKI.

Porflox was however soon appointed to serve as Blue Canaria North after an opening for the seat appeared following Wischland's successful bid for delegate.
~The Council of Nine repealed The House Continuity and Closure Act due to its redundancy after The House Closure Requirement Reform Act was passed.
~Porymonia was named featured nation for March thanks to their extremely prolific posting in A Taco Archipelago, our RP region. At more than 27,000 posts, they have posted many thousand times more than anyone else! More can be read here.
~Congratulations Silvedania on the well deserved Rookie of the Quarter awards! They have been an active poster on the RMB and discord, as well as joining TIBOE to improve regional security! Here is the full statement.
~Our forum has long been overdue for a makeover, and Free Las Pinas has sure stepped up for the job! In an very close voting, they narrowly beat out the competition, and their Pastel Palms theme will soon be the default look of our forum!
~10000 Islands's RP region A Taco Archipelago in its just under one year of existence has beaten out 10000 Islands's post count in the past 10 years (since the creation of RMB archives)!
~The Mad Surfer published its last issue this month (here) because of increased Real Life obligations and the increase in regional news bulletins which you can read more about in the article. Thank you Jabberwocky for the continued editorship and the entire staff for creating an amazing newspaper for three whole years!
A regional poll by Jabberwocky asked Islanders what device they'd want to have. Lightsabers from star wars overwhelmingly won, mostly due to islanders having no clue about what the other ones were.
The RMB this month was filled with many insightful conversations, and some more comical ones.
~Are we mining cheese?
~April Fools! Kind of... not really
~The Drew before Drew
~Interesting waste disposal
~My oldest memory is...
~I wisch for a pun!
~I find your lack of derrieres pleasant
~Aliens? No problem!
The All Weather Router is a division in Horse racing. And since it is pretty much a horse. It is a herbivore.
Horses! Now I'm glad I asked, I was so on the wrong (race) track.
I was imagining a router for a computer network, that for some reason needs to be robust enough to hang in a tree. All those cables and connections outside in the rain and storm, with birds building a nest on top...
I've seen a few videos of horses snacking on baby chicks. They'll take a bit of protein from time to time.
Then I suppose it's best not to build a bird nest on top of the race horse either.
