It's not invisible and pink. Just an ordinary, common-or-garden unicorn. Hardly worth the column-inches.

Tempted to say it's a liberal plot, but The Telegraph have reported it too:

and the North Korean News Agency have also reported on the scientific basis for acupuncture (which is much less believable than finding a unicorn's lair):

You guys have spent more time researching unicorns than the theology you oppose. Amazing.

Unicorns are a lot more interesting than any theology I've come across.

Obviously this thread is not concerned with truth..

This thread is concerned with nothing but the truth (abut unicorns).

The news report from N. Korea doesn't actually say they believe in unicorns. It says they found a unicorn lair (recognisable by the words "Unicorn Lair" carved into a rock) and goes on to say: "The discovery of the unicorn lair, associated with legend about King Tongmyong, proves that Pyongyang was a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom"

Their point is that Pyongyang in N. Korea is a historically important capital (and by implication superior to S. Korea).

Disappointingly there are no reports of the smell of fresh, invisible pink unicorn manure. This doesn't mean they didn't live there at some point in the past.

The Invisible Pink Unicorn is beyond such material things as manure.

What's wrong with acupuncture ?

In reply to an earlier post on 3 Dec 2012 22:00:50 GMT
Ian says:
It doesn't work.

OK, that's an oversimplification; for the most part it doesn't work. In the few trials that suggest it might for a very limited range of conditions it's about as effective as taking an aspirin. However, the difficulty of designing a suitable placebo for such trials makes it seem likely that it does nothing (sham acupuncture - sticking needles in randomly but not as deep as real acupuncture - is equally effective).

You guys are more concerned about "unicorns" on the net-web than actually being people and engaging with folk from the places you think unicorns exist...Amazing..

Spin says:
After all your academic research and conversational seriousness, can one of you answer the question; Do Unicorns exist?

On a religious forum, atheists and literary fantastists express views that cannot be defended?

K You feel content arguing with folks over god or morality, but you feel OK talking about unicorns?

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Dec 2012 16:08:49 GMT
K. Hoyles says:
Yes and yes.

Unicorns are more worthy of your consideration than questions about the morality and ethics of the life you apparently live...
