(I promise I won't turn this into a debate if you don't want to)

There is a couple of possible reasons why people believe in god.
They could be deluded, indoctrinated, or just in need of some kind of psychological crutch.
You personally, I don't know. Didn't read many of your posts.

Average scores are higher in ten pin than in candle pin.

if ten pin means there are ten pins then that is what I played. 10 pins standing in a triangular shape. Didn't know there was another kind.

From Wikipedia:

Five main variations are found in North America, varying especially in New England and parts of Canada:

Ten-pin bowling: largest and heaviest pins, bowled with a large ball with finger holes, and the most popular size in North America

Candlepin: tallest pins, thin with matching ends, and bowled with the smallest and lightest (at 1.1 kg) handheld ball of any bowling sport

Duckpin: short, squat, and bowled with a handheld ball

Five-pin bowling: tall, between duckpins and candlepins in diameter with a rubber girdle, bowled with a handheld ball, mostly found in Canada

Nine-pin bowling: pins usually attached to strings at the tops, uses a ball without finger holes


I've bowled all of them except Nine-pin.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

A man after my own heart. Glad to have you here! Big Grin

If I could choose one, probably it would have to be some kind of psychological crutch. I call it faith, of course, lol.

Yup , that's it. I remember liking more heavy balls, but I can't remember which ones exactly. 12? 16?

Bowling not really popular here tho.

Not twice, 3 or 4 times.
If 200 is that good I might be remembering it wrong. I remember I was doing good but not like I was an undiscovered talent of bowling. I can't even put a curve on my shots , I fire it straight down the middle.

Some people can consistently bowl 200+, but those people usually bowl on a regular basis. It is possible to get a 200 your first time out if you're a natural. A perfect game is 300, but most people will never get a 300, or even a 250. I doubt I will ever get 200. I suck at bowling, but I do think it's fun.

I have topped 200 1 time ever. My Average is around 140-150 back when I was regularly playing. That's 10 pin, have also played duck pin but it's been so long ago that I can't remember what I scored.

Yeah, it is fun, but I prefer other sports.

I used to be a handball goalie, and a left wing if necessary.

And I don't know where you are from but I know that people outside Europe rarely know what handball is , so...
