How Often Do Humans Legitimately Win?
Quote: What I have a harder time understanding is the extremely...visceral...reaction some people seem to have to OA's treatment of this, particularly since we are a setting, not a specific story or plot and because there doesn't seem to be a firm reason to actually believe in human unbeatability beyond it just makes them feel good.

I'll put it as one of my professor: "There is always a good 5% of unsatisfied assholes." Tongue

Quote: Many years back now I remember reading another forum in which members were stating that OA's approach to this meant we weren't hard science (as if it is a law of physics that humans must win any conflict) and one in particular saying (in so many words and in tones of existential horror) that if humans could never win then existence is meaningless (exclamation point!).

It's just their point of view. If we get philosophical we'll never reach a satisfactory answer for everyone to the problem.
