Hokay guys, you are confusing me. What is the difference between science fiction and fantasy? I am not at all sure there is a difference. Fantasy in novels, games and movies usually includes either or both magic and supernatural influences and is frequently set in a medieval atmosphere. Sometimes an effort is made to give a scientific basis to the magic.

I believe in ESP because of personal experiences and although I do not believe in a god in the standard religious sense of the word I believe there is more to this world than can be put in a laboratory and studied scientifically. I cannot prove any of this to you or anyone else so it falls into the realm of fantasy yet it is very real to me.

FTL travel is considered impossible at this time so it falls into the realm of fantasy or speculation. Not that long ago in the history of mankind it was believed that the sun rotated the earth. Twenty-five years ago the ophthalmologists couldn't even properly diagnose muscular degeneration. Now they can. Science is not static but in constant motion

I don't see that much difference between science fiction and gantasy. I think they overlap but the I disagree with both the Big Bang theorists and the hardcore creationists. It was only 600 hundred years ago that many people still considered the world to be flat. That is a moment in time for humankind. Who knows what discoveries will be made in the next 600 years?.

No flame wars allowed here, keep it on a polite basis, please.

I've never read Eragon but I've been arguing that we know very little indeed. The major point on which we disagree is Einstein's theory (I don't take it for granted as it's not been proven).

You've mentioned that you've been posting at very late hours and that is probably not such a good idea if you end up being tired.

Anyway let's agree to disagree and leave it at that.

Nakia, somehow you managed to say everything I have tried to say, and in one post! And don't worry, Carabas and I will leave this conversation at this.

Agreed. In the future avoid comments like "suck on that" in bold letters if you don't want to flame. -Cara

I don't flame, I'm straight. (forgive the pun I couldn't resist). Very Happy

FYI FTL doesn't necessarily fall within the realm of fantasy, I believe it's quite the opposite actually as it can be considered as a hallmark of science fiction; other than that I agree with you Nakia.

Good we three agree to agree and disagree. I know you don't flame, Cara, but Loran mentioned it and I couldn't resist either. Very Happy

I do enjoy serious subjects but they are so hard to handle even when people are friendly.
