You're both right. It should be the study of religion but most theology teachers will be apologists of some kind. I would steer well clear and just learn by reading independently of any establishment unless, like in this case, it is mandatory.

That's a nice photograph, cmdshft. You might want to stop using such heavy editing, though. It makes you look like kind of a douche.

Further to this aim, I would lose the guy with the douche cap on. He will ruin any photo he appears in.

George Lucas "hoped" people wouldn't notice how terrible the new trilogy was. Look where that got him? Even richer.

There's only one answer. Make our own porn.

The problem here is that in the argument "Person A says X but does Y" the assumption is that the person saying X and the person doing Y are the same person. Sometimes perhaps but not always.

It would be like saying to Bill "You always say you hate Tescos but (then suddenly turning to address Ben) you always shop there"

I don't think there's a lower size limit on boob attractiveness. There is an upper size limit though as well as the fake boob limit. So in summary: I like boobs.

All I see here is an effective search function. You look up "paradoxal" and you get directed to "paradox". Or did you not bother to look at the page beyond its URL and title?
Ah, how delightful! You accuse me of not having read the page, having not read it yourself!

Related forms
par·a·dox·i·cal, par·a·dox·al, adjective

The only words defined on that page are paradox and paradoxical.
Incorrect. "Paradoxal", a non-existent word, is proposed as an alternative form of "paradoxical". You managed to notice it yourself, yet you contradict it here.

The only link to the rare spelling is "Sometimes, par·a·dox·al" in the latter definition. I don't see any claim that this is correct.
Perhaps you need to revisit your understanding of what a dictionary is. Non-existent words have no place in a reputable dictionary, based on the virtue that a dictionary is a collection of words.

Do you have anything at all to add to this discussion?
Indeed. I have already added it. Here's a reminder for you:

Please do not use dictionaries known to contain non-existent words in debates.
Of course, had you read my post in context, you would notice that I said this in support of your argument. However, you're too busy trying to attack everyone to even notice that you're attacking RE'ers' own argument.

Any self-respecting dictionary will include alternative spellings of words if they are used. A dictionary does not tell you what words exist it tells you which words are currently used (to say a word doesn't exist is verging on the pointless). It's like the way a dictionary doesn't tell you what a word means; it tells you the current use(s) of the word. This, of course, says nothing about paradoxal; I have no idea how much this word is used, but in principle any word that gets used can be put in a dictionary. If paradoxal is used, there's no problem with it being listed in a dictionary. As was pointed out, the most commonly used spelling of paradoxical is listed as the main entry for the adjectival form. Paradoxal is listed as "sometimes", which appears plausible based on Google results. There are even a few websites called Paradoxal. "Incorrect" spelling? Perhaps for now. In future it may become a perfectly acceptable alternative.

(All this is why, for example, pointing to dictionaries in definition arguments is pointless and both parties should always simply agree on a definition for the sake of argument)

My brain won't allow me to read the comments on that article. I get about one sentence in and my eyes move away on their own.

So we got more info from Parsifal, not even on the site any more, than we did the powers-that-be, who have now gone suspiciously quiet because they know they have royally fucked up? Well done you complete idiots.

And don't forget the most dangerous animal on the planet....

That is exactly what I had in mind! Also the poorly imitated sound effect I made will be recognisable if you watch Phelous on TGWTG.

itt: people completely ignoring the OP request because they don't have any answers, so just starting arguments.

Wait, that's every thread. Carry on.
I did not ignore him.  I'm even helping him.

You are making a mockery of the website, anymore of this insolence and you will be banned.

You guys are obsessed with "noobness" as if having 9000 posts is somehow better than having 200. That's really very funny.
ITT: inability to differentiate between quality and quantity or between wisdom and age.

Woah there small-count. Anyone who knows anything about anything, knows that post count is extremely important. Especially when divided by time spent online.
