You can ask me anything or ask for an honest opinion. Even if I answered an honest opinion or a question for you last AMA / HOY, I am still willing to answer them again as my opinions on some users have changed and my opinions on some questions have changed too.

I accidentally posted this in the miscellaneous forum too. Ignore that thread and post in this one. Max is going to delete that one.

With that said, ask away!

Well I'm from the UK but the thing that comes to mind when people mention America tends to be guns.

Now onto the HOY, you're a great polls moderator and contributor to the forums. You know a lot about a large variation of different topics which means that you can contribute to all the different forums as oppose to just a few. We haven't really interacted that much (I think I might have mentioned that on my 1k posts HOY), so I can't really say much more on a personal level. From what I've seen you're a great person though.

We've only began interacting quite recently though I'm sure as time goes by you'll come when of my better friends on the site. You're a genuinely kind and friendly guy who is really easy to get along with. You're a great contributor to the forums, as well as providing good conversation and less serious topics to the forums you also provide very intellectual and clever insights. Finding both people that are friendly and great with conversation as well as being very intelligent is hard to find and that's a great attribute that you have. I hope to continue to interact with you as I think I will be spending an increasing amount of my time in the forums as oppose to debating.

I haven't interacted with you much on a personal level but you seem to be really intelligent philosophically speaking. You know a lot about more complicated philosophical topics that most people wouldn't know much about. I'd really like to see you debate a bit more. I know that you've started debating again and I really look forward to looking at your debates (especially your one with Kasmic on compatiblism). You're a great debater and a great addition to the philosophy forums. I also appreciate you telling me about those arguments for moral realism.

Just saying, you and Budda are the only two to really write something more in-depth than "you seem like a positive guy, which is good!" (not that that's bad, it's still nice to see that I'm thought of that way :3). So thanks famous :D

You seem like a really good user that would be great if they stayed on the site as a long term thing. Your contributions to the forums are great and are very intelligent as well as the debates of yours that I've read. You're mafia skills need work (though I'd probably say the same applies for me too). I haven't really had that many personal interactions with you though, I do hope that it can change and that we can have some interesting discussions.

Yeah, I don't know if it's for me either though I'm gonna play a few more games before conclusively making a decision though.

I haven't given it any thought.

Vehicle (if any):

Desired vehicle or current vehicle? I don't have a current vehicle because I'm only 13.

Your version of a "perfect society":

A society where I am the dictator and I have infinite money and power.

Yes. That is what I mean. Nothingness is nothingness.

Islam.

How come?

I don't like some of the content in the Qu'ran. There's a lot of sexism and bad policies that I don't find to be particularly good.

I accidentally posted this in the miscellaneous forum too. Ignore that thread and post in this one. Max is going to delete that one.

With that said, ask away!

Your honest opinion of me and, also in your opinion, does the word "unlockable" mean "able to be unlocked" or "unable to be locked?"

I believe that the word unlockable means "unable to be locked". This is because the word lockable means able to be locked and every adjective must have an opposite. Therefore, I believe that unlockable references to something that is unable to be locked.

Now onto the HOY. I think you're a great debater and you're very knowledgeable on topic that regard science or God's existence. You've definitely taught me a thing or two with your debates and I think that I've mentioned this in a couple of my RFDs. I do think that you should debate a larger variety of topics because this definitely helps to improve debating ability and skill. I don't know why you think I'm older than 13 though, there are plenty of people that are significantly smarter than I am that are only slightly older than me on the site. I'd like to see some more forum activity too. I can tell from your debates and some of the conversations that I've had with you that you'd be a great addition to the forums if you posted there a bit more. Overall, you're a great debater and a great addition to the site and I'm sure that you'll continue debating and teaching me and others about God, atheism and science.

What would you call something that is able to be unlocked?

What you just said there is the reason I got into DDO, so thanks for that.

Valid point. The problem is that on issues like abortion, death penalty, assisted suicide, affirmative action, etc., I could really give a crap...not that these topics don't matter!
It's just I don't feel as great a passion for things unrelated to science/pseudoscience, so if I were to debate things like that, I wouldn't be debating at 100%, and that's not an activity that I endorse.

I don't know why you think I'm older than 13 though, there are plenty of people that are significantly smarter than I am that are only slightly older than me on the site.

There are plenty of people who list in their profile that they are only slightly older than you...it could be that they are not being completely honest...

I'd like to see some more forum activity too.

You and me both man. I've got two kids under the age of 4, I'm a full time teacher, wrestling coach, and part-time curriculum writer. This basically limits me to "post when/where it matters" and to me those are the debates of challengers who may not understand some things. Forums are cool though.

I can tell from your debates and some of the conversations that I've had with you that you'd be a great addition to the forums if you posted there a bit more.

Thanks man.

I love debating and teaching, so this prediction is likely accurate.

Hmmm... I don't know but a similar question could be asked regardless of my answer to that question.

You're welcome, and yeah it's definitely the topic that you can debate the best at.

I do think that you should debate a larger variety of topics because this definitely helps to improve debating ability and skill.

I understand that but I think that's more about improving debating ability as oppose to debating topics you're interested in.

It's just I don't feel as great a passion for things unrelated to science/pseudoscience, so if I were to debate things like that, I wouldn't be debating at 100%, and that's not an activity that I endorse.

I can understand that, though if you get used to debating topics that you aren't as good at debating then it can be beneficial to your debating ability and it also gives you a larger variety of topics that you are able to debate confidently which is useful as a life skill.

I don't know why you think I'm older than 13 though, there are plenty of people that are significantly smarter than I am that are only slightly older than me on the site.

There are plenty of people who list in their profile that they are only slightly older than you...it could be that they are not being completely honest...

I know that some people are around my age because I've spoken to them in person in the google hangouts. Hayd and FortisAnimi are definitely their age (14) and they're both significantly smarter than me. I'm almost certain that Tejretics, Taj and Coletrain are also their age and they're also all smarter than me in my opinion.

I'd like to see some more forum activity too.

I guess that's understandable. What school subject(s) do you teach?

True...there are a few debates I've done outside of my wheelhouse...who knows, if the right challenger comes along, I might debate something less-desirable.

What school subject(s) do you teach?

I'm certified in biology, physics, and chemistry, but over the years, the school's needs fluctuate, so I may teach any of those at one time.

I also maintain that if you are the age you say you are, you are the smartest 13 year old I have ever come in contact with and I've been teaching high school for over 8 years.
