Quote of the Day: Alpha Centuri Quotes [I] - Citat dana: Citati iz Alphe Centauri [I]

 Among the geeky population, Alpha Centauri has a cult status. The game is basically a sci fi Civilization, but the Datalinks (Civilopedia) of that game is an unbelievable source of quotations and smarty goodness. For example, the Academician Prokhor Zakharov speaks about the difference between methodical scientific progress and genius breakthroughs (will quote that one sometime in the future). Sister Miriam, on the other hand, dabbles in one of the deepest questions of Intelligent Design - the existance of evil. In a computer game. Why don't they make such smart computer games anymore?

Some would ask, how could a perfect God create a universe filled with so much that is evil. They have missed a greater conundrum: why would a perfect God create a universe at all?
Sister Miriam Godwinson, "But for the Grace of God"

What do you think? Is Sister Miriam onto something?


Među populacijom geekova, Alpha Centauri ima kultan status. Najjednostavnije rečeno, igra je SF Civilization, ali Datalinks (Civilopedia) te igre je nevjerojatan izvor citat i pametnjakovićastih gluposti. Na primjer, Akademik Prokhor Zakharov govori o razlici između znanstvenog napretka i genijalnih skokova u znanosti (dat ću vam taj citat u nekoj od sljedećih inkarnacija Quote of the Day postova). Sestra Miriam se, s druge strane, miješa u neka od najdubljih pitanja inteligentnog dizajna - postojanje zla. U kompjuterskoj igrici. Zašto više ne rade tako pametne igrice?

Neki bi mogli reći, kako to da je savršen Bog stvorio svemir pun zlih opačina. Ali oni koji to pitaju su propustili veću zagonetku: zašto bi savršen Bog uopće stvarao svemir?
Sestra Miriam Godwinson, "But for the Grace of God"

Što mislite? Je li sestra Miriam na tragu nečega?
