* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Quote from: Juniper;89804
In a hypothetical scenario where there is an absence of human life on planet Earth, would the Gods still exist?

Why/why not?

(Just something I've been pondering and thought I'd open it up for discussion).

 
I suspect the gods would keep on existing, but they would be changed in some way. I suspect gods of more civilized enterprises (like smithing, agriculture, or trade) would take on more primal aspects instead (like wildfire, wild growth, or mineral abundance).

Second possibility, those more civilized gods would start working their magic on other intelligent creatures, developing them into the next, civilized species.

Essentially, I don't know if we imitate the gods, the gods imitate us, or a little of both. Cop-out answer, I know.

I think they would. I think they would not be quite as entertained but I think they would still be there. They are their own thing, IMO totally independent of us.
Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?

I believe so, since they put us on earth wouldn't that mean they had to be around first? So yes they would.
