‘Refute’, ‘rebut’ and ‘rebuke’ all look similar on the page. In addition, they’re all verbs that describe things you might want to do to someone you disagree with.

It’s no surprise, then, that these words are sometimes used interchangeably, even though this is incorrect . In practice, they all have different meanings, as we will show below.

The word ‘refute’ means ‘disprove’. As such, we might say something like this:

The creationist argument is refuted by the fossil record.

Importantly, ‘refuting’ something involves more than just disagreeing with it or arguing against it. You have to actually prove that something is false to refute it.

A ‘rebuttal’, on the other hand, is an argument against something . For example:

Reverend Green rebutted the scientist’s point by shouting about the Bible.

The key here is that you don’t have to be correct to ‘rebut’ something. This term applies to any counterargument, whether right or wrong. If a ‘rebuttal’ is successful, it may refute the point the rebutter is arguing against. But these are still distinct terms.

‘Rebuke’ is very distinct from the other words here, as it means ‘tell off’ or ‘reprimand’ . Usually, it implies speaking angrily to someone because you disapprove of something they’ve done:

The chairperson rebuked Reverend Green for his angry outburst.

As above, you might ‘rebuke’ someone for making an unpleasant or silly argument (e.g. that fossils were simply planted to test our faith). However, this isn’t the same as arguing against them or disproving their point, so this word is not directly relevant to arguments.

All of these words have specialised meanings, so it’s important not to mix them up .

The trickiest two are ‘refute’ and ‘rebut’, since both can be used in relation to arguments. The key here is that ‘refute’ is stronger, meaning ‘disprove’. If you are simply arguing against something but haven’t disproved it, ‘rebut’ will be the correct term.

‘Rebuke’, meanwhile, means ‘reprimand’ or ‘tell off’. Remember:

Refute = Disprove something

Rebut = Deny or argue against something

Rebuke = Reprimand someone

PC Games news and reviews

Before last year’s series reboot Prey, a follow-up to the 2006 original had been in the works by Human Head. Now you can watch almost a minute of footage from Prey 2, thanks to a New York-based games historian.

Check out our story on how nike air max 90 current huarache x dqmj2 NH1VKT8
.

Andrew Borman , the digital games curator at the Museum of Play in Rochester, N.Y., shared a clip from Prey 2 sent to him by Human Head Games last week.

Seems like a good day to post a short video I was sent from @humanheadgames cancelled Prey 2. Still look forward to the day that I have more to share. #prototypes #prey2 pic.twitter.com/3Fl0lB4puN

It has a look and feel very different from last year’s Prey, which was a quieter, tenser game set in a space station ravaged by an alien menace. But it’s also a big departure from the first game. Here, we see a story sequel to the original, set in a neon-drenched city and characterized by a lot of run-and-gun FPS action.

Prey 2 was announced by 3DRealms shortly after the launch of the original Prey, but work didn’t begin until quite a bit later, after Betheda’s parent company ZeniMax bought the rights to the IP. Bethesda eventually cancelled the game, and rumors at the time claimed that Human Head had been hamstrung deliberately - claims that Bethesda’s Pete Hines has strongly denied .

But by the time it was cancelled, an ex-Human Head developer says, it was well beyond the point of being a demo and was a “full game.” It just turns out, it was a game Bethesda didn’t want any more.

We wound up pretty well off with 2017’s spiffy reboot of the series, but it’s interesting to see what might have been.
