Theological Discourse

Postby Platypus Enthusiast on Sun Mar 20, 2011 1:58 am

So I'm thinking for the Canon we could do a community Q and A thing, where one of us asks a boiling theological question and others answer as cryptically/uncryptically, authoritative/unauthoritative, etc/unetc as they choose. And to screw with future readers, feel free to pose new questions before others are answered, so there's no linearness. I'll get the meatball rolling:

So when you say 'RAmen', is it pronounced /rɑːˈmɪn/ like the pasta or /ˈrɑːmɛn/,/ˈreɪmɛn/ like the Semitic religions' Amen?

In the spirit of the frst post:
Should we quote the question we're answering, or simply confuse people? :evilgrin:

My answer:
I don't know. What if I never say it, but only write it? :confused:

Tigger it is preposterous to say you never say it, or write it, only ever think it. Next you'll say you don't know how to spell it when you used it in your post. :furious:

Sounds like we need an "it" department. Just don't ask the Knights who say Ni.

We have a Korean sister-in-law, and from her we've picked up saying it "RAH-myun", at least when used in a food context.

When using it to get on the nerves of a True Christian (TM) I tend to pronounce it Rah-MEN"

Burning Theological Question: To fight global warming, do Pirates have to actually commit crimes on the high seas? Or is adopting the culture (cool clothes, distinctive accents) sufficient?

Are you asking us to outline the defining characteristics of a pirate? Let's ask daftbeaker and Qwerty...

Ah but scripture tells us that the original pirates were not criminals, but instead went around giving candy to children and such. I suspect the criminal stereotype comes from ninja propaganda.

What about Pirate Captains of industry, who may not look like Pirates, speak like Pirates or in any way identify with Pirates but are Pirates none-the-less?

No, No, No Nooooooo!

Then they'll come argue in circles, and this thread will get all boring and I'll have to go play word association or something!

Silly ninjas. What if we prefer the more 'traditional' forms of piracy, you know, raping and pillaging to giving out candy. Or is that a Viking?

If we're arguing in circles, that means it's time for someone else to pop in and call us out on that, or add something new to the discussion. ;)

That said, I can probably answer that question when I have a little more time to spare. I love answering theological questions in full on Poe's law Pastafarianism. I think I answered some newcomers question about heaven/hell not too long ago, those ones are always fun.

All my life's a circle. Can you please tell me why?
The seasons are spinning round again, the years keep rollin' by.
It sure seems like I've been here before but I can't remember when.
I have this funny feeling that we'll all be together again.

There's no clear-cut beginnings and so far... no dead-ends.

Because it's a circle in a spiral in a wheel within a wheel?
