If you can do that ... then no true atheist (or Scotsman).  On the other hand, being able to do that makes you a good slave to a political party.
Dumbass. Most people who die in novels never even lived, but Sherlock Holmes was fun to read. Get that stick out of your ass, it's banging up against your uvula.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

Don't see the connection.  Sorry.  There is a difference of opinion on what good fiction is, and whether or not something is fiction (it is a gray scale depending on fantasy vs reality (in writing).  Of course fiction is just that, however "based" it may be on real events.  Such differences of opinion are normal.  BTW - a novel, like Gore Vidal's Lincoln, isn't history .. it is the reuse of a historic character for fictional purposes.  Both a novel and a mini-series.  But all fiction writers have an ax to grind, even if it is just their opinion on what ought to be entertaining.

interesting video.

just to clarify so anyone fearful of getting offended, no, the guy doesn't hate the movie, the says at the start he loved black panther. He simply draws up some problems with the movie on a logical basis I've often brought up too.

problems like, wakanda is meant to be an advanced society, yet its governed by a dictatorship based on strength, not thought.
The fact that their entire system of advancement and growth is based on one resource, the vibranium, which as has been shows with real life nations when a country is only dependent on one resource, it doesn't advance as other nations do that grow based on many difference resources.

And the biggest plothole with wakanda, its meant to be this bubbled off society thats been hidden from the outside world for a long time. There is no logical way wakanda could have evolved to one of the most advanced places on earth by doing that, as the real world most advanced societies on earth have evolved and grown due to trade and interacting with other nations for shared resources, or even war in claiming those other resources.

And yeah, i know, comic book movie. But even comic book movies need to operate in the realm of believable scientific reasoning. Even Aquaman as a movie makes more sense that undersea cities can have grown and operated due to them being many different undersea nations.
