re: GoT "Middle Ground" Thread - Sn 4 Ep 3 starts on p. 26 ***Spoilers Possible*** - Bayou Sam
Not sure if this question is OK, but: Does anyone know what the constitution of Westeros says about the line of succession in this situation--i.e., where the king dies with a queen and no heir? If people think an answer would be too spoilery, my apologies in advance. ...

re: So Cosmos is more atheistic rant than actual cosmos? - Bayou Sam
It's understandable why so many Christians starting treating the bible as a science textbook. Inerrancy and literalism are contemporary ways of controlling interpretation. The Reformation was all about who had the authority to interpret scripture. Eventually those who fought for freedom of consc...

Just because the threads were dominated by the mystery doesn't mean that's the main reason people were drawn to the show. They were drawn to the mystery because of the characterization of Rust, his dialogue, and how it played into the mythological-metafictional story TD was telling. I mean, I was...
