I had sort of given up on this site afte being gone for a while. Since I had been busy for a while and found myself skipping so many days playing map games seemed impossible, I didn't have much to do. In any case, I had become tired of the Map Games by that point. I decided that there was no real reason to go back to this site, despite the other things here.
However, over the past week or so I had been thinking about this place, and I decided that I didn't need to be active every single day and run a bunch of map games to be a member of the community and to contribute. So I decided to return here, and maybe work on Easternized World or something for a while.
How's everybody doing, and what's happened over the last couple months?Read more >
OK, Red VS Blue pointed out several important facts last time, which basically came down to that it is almost a 50/50 chance of people being the same as OTL, with the chance of them being born significantly more deformed or exceptional than in real life (unless it is an inherited disorder) being very low. Therefore, I am going to use this 50/50 gender chance to determine the probability of someone being born if their conception would not be affected by the POD directly
Things to remember:
- This is for people whose conception is not going to be affected by a POD right yet. For example, in a timeline whose POD is about Japan, if Japan's relations with the west have not been altered yet, then this would apply. However, if in that timeline Ja…
I was reading up on the chances of all of us existing, and I have determined that one of the most implausible features of many timelines on this wiki is the way that real-life people, born after the Point of Divergance, are still alive, in some cases hundreds or even thousands of years later.\
The chances of the sperm cell in the father that carries the DNA necessary for one person to be the one to fertilize the egg is 1 to 12,000,000,000.
The probability of any one being born after 10 generations past the POD, or 250 years, is 1 in 6000000000000000
And that is just factoring in the chances of the sperm cell of the father being the correct one, not :

Since the rise of Islam in the seventh century, no major religions have developed that have dominated large portions of the globe. My question is, would it be possible for a new religion to rise to huge numbers in the modern era? Could Sikhism grow in size until it had hundreds of millions of member throughout India and the surrounding nations, enough to break away into their own state in the partition of India? Could the Latter-Day Saints Movement, perhaps without its nasty polygamous phase, grow to become the largest denomination in North America, with many more members than it currently possesses? Could Neo-Paganism have become much more widespread, with millions and millions of members across Europe and the Americas? Could other religi…Read more >
As anyone who has been on this wiki for the past day, looked at the recent picture uploads, recent wiki activity, or fictional flags page, will see that I have uploaded a great deal of fictional flags, all dealing with the union of various Celtic nations. However, there are some which I have created multiple flags for, not knowing what the best one is. Here, you can vote and decide which ones are the best.
Comments about your choice in the polls, on any of the flags, or anything else related to this matter can be posted in the comments below. LurkerLordB (Talk) 16:20, June 1, 2012 (UTC)Read more >
