    Make mine coveting the wives of neighbors.


    In case you've forgotten, the commandments:
    "I am the LORD thy God
    Thou shalt have no other gods
    No graven images or likenesses
    Not take the LORD's name in vain
    Remember the sabbath day
    Honour thy father and thy mother
    Thou shalt not kill
    Thou shalt not commit adultery
    Thou shalt not steal
    Thou shalt not bear false witness
    Thou shalt not covet"

    I'm not sure if sticking thy wiener in cream puff pastries is actually a sin.

    Those are one version of the top ten commandments (there are several variations) but there
    are over 600 commandments in the OT.

    However the seven deadly sins are not the ten commandments.
    wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. are the typically listed mortal sins.

    However simply doing anything god doesn't approve of is a sin.

    The one I do best.

    Deny gods existence.

    In most of their senses, there is no difference between skeptic and sceptic. Skeptic is the preferred spelling in American and Canadian English, and sceptic is preferred in the main varieties of English from outside North America.

    To me, sceptic always looks, and probably should be pronounced, like septic.

    But then, here in America, we don't say "shhhhhedule", either.

    "The rest of the story", though, from the same web page as above:
    ... There is an exception, though: In reference to some 21st-century strains of scientific skepticism, writers and publications from outside North America often use the spellings with the k.

    The word comes from the French sceptique,1 which in French is pronounced sep-teek. It has taken several spellings since coming to English in the 16th century, but the modern British spelling was settled by the early 19th century. The development of the k spelling is a natural result of English speakers altering the French pronunciation with the first-syllable k sound. The c is silent in many but by no means all English words containing sc, but writers outside North America never got on board with skeptic—that is, until recently, as the sk- usage appears to be growing outside the United States, perhaps with discussion of climate “skeptics” in the media. Moreover, British and Australian skeptical societies—groups that come together to promote science and critical thinking on subjects such as the paranormal—often used the sk- spelling.

    I find Skeptic more aesthetically pleasing than Sceptic and so I use a K.

    If people don't like it... then tough.

    I will boldly go where many dyslexics have gone before me and spell words however I damn well want to.

    I admire your individualistic stance on this, but as I once told GB in the General Forum, if you do not follow convention with the commonly accepted spelling of words, then you run the risk of not being understood, or perhaps worse, being misunderstood.

    I only asked him to write out
    "prowess" and "loser"

    I realise the alternative spelling
    of sceptic used by our cousins,
    interestingly some sources say
    the original spelling was with
    a 'K' so it's just a case of the
    Americans not catching up with
    modern spelling. 😉
