Hey Peter. I know you're a busy man (we all appreciate it), but I was wondering if you knew of a way to make a kick-ass Captain America costume (preferably the one you don't like too much, from the titular movie).
How do we figure out if our beliefs are true or false?
Answer: credible, objective and repeatable EVIDENCE!
Since no evidence on this issue is forthcoming, which position (Theism or Athiesm) is more truthful?
1)Theism: believing something exists until evidence is presented that it does not exist.
2)Atheism: not believing something exists until evidence is presented that it does exist.
The second way is more truthful. In the courtroom example, the claim is that Person G is guilty. Yet, Person G is assumed innocent until proven guilty. The burden of proof falls on the one making the claim. It is the Theist's job to provide evidence of God's existence. Since no evidence is forthcoming, Atheism is the more honest position.
Athiesm and Agnosticism answer different questions. Athiesm answers a question of belief. Agnosticism answers a question of knowledge. Belief and knowledge are not the same thing; you, arguably, can not know everything but you can believe anything. Most people are agnostics, they claim no personal knowledge of God but this not stop them from believing. In belief, you either believe something or you do not. Do you believe a God exists? If you say anything other than "yes", you are rejecting the claim. If you reply "I don't know", you are unconvinced; you don't believe.
I completely agree with you on The Amazing Spiderman, it's a flawed, enjoyable movie. Hopefully you'll talk about it on LEOG with the guys, and maybe talk some sense into Leon and Cyrus in the process.
Alright, I am a little behind on my LEOGs, so I unfortunately just listened to the Nostalgia Episode 2. There was one point where you have to fight a whole room of old men about the merits of Transformers the original cartoon. Let me just say that I am completely on your side. I too have recently watched a few old episodes, and must say that they were quite good. The movie was pretty epic, though if they didn't kill off so many characters, I don't know how it would have held up after all this time. The killing of the characters was of course not a writing decision, but a marketing one (Since Hasbro wanted to introduce a whole new line of toys).
I unfortunately must also add that upon watching the original GI Joe cartoon, I am not as fond of it as I once was. The racial stereotypes are blatant and the animation is pretty shotty. The cartoon movie of course was an awesome ball of cheesy fun (greatest intro ever).
Hey Peter since your known for inventing replicas of geeky items, while I was watch iron man I was wondering if you've ever tried to make a replica of Tony's arc reactor (the circular one) and if so if you could post a photo of it as that would be pretty cool
Thanks for your time
Hey, if you could comment back since the character limit on status cut you off would be much appreciated. Thanks a ton on the input, wasn't expecting anyone to come through. The mic would be camera mounted, shooting a doc trying to keep as bare bones as I can, bit of an experiment on the cheap and fast side; guerrilla as possible with the Rode being the necessary expense. Was mainly asking what level of quality I could achieve without anything external from the camera (why I mentioned Magic Lantern for manual audio control and disabling the AGC). Thanks again man.
