  1. I reckon your profile neds a random post from me :D

  2. That's the thing though. One of the main points of most religions is conversion. If you don't believe what they believe, in their eyes you're an infidel or a blasphemer and you're going to whatever version of Hell their religion created. no... not most religions. just the loudest ones. Which usually happen to be the most powerful and influential ones as well. I guess "most" was too broad a generalization.
  3. That's the thing though. One of the main points of most religions is conversion. If you don't believe what they believe, in their eyes you're an infidel or a blasphemer and you're going to whatever version of Hell their religion created. actually this is more of a recent phenominon, starting after the conversion of the Roman Empire to Christianity. Before that the multi god system allowed more religious tolerance, due to if there are this many, why can't there be more, and this god can have different names Been going on long enough for me to not be able to take seriously someone who thinks that I am going to eternally burn in hellfire because I don't accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Or insert other Religion's idea of it. Either way.
  4. Well ELO has reset, so time to enrage myself by trying to get higher than Silver II this season lol.
  5. Just started it. Seems pretty cool so far. Quite a bit more...Fluid(?) than the others it feels like to me.

  7. That's simply false. You may not consider the evidence conclusive, or persuasive, but there's certainly evidence - evidence I find not merely persuasive, but conclusive. I think you know enough about me by now to know I don't reach such conclusions lightly or thoughtlessly, or relying on bad logic. So while I'm happy to have a calm, civil discussion of the issue with you if you'd like, it would be nice if you'd can the arrogant attitude and useless posturing. Choose wisely. I guess I should have said that there is zero evidence for the Christian God. Or the Hindu Gods, or any Roman, Greek, Chinese or Norse Gods. The other things you said postulate that a driving, creating force beyond the physical laws we as humans understand exists. I don't disagree with that. In fact, I basically agree there has to be something. But it's so far beyond what we can comprehend, the bible, the koran, any religious text, is just humanity's lame attempt at simplifying something beyond comprehension. Neither your nor my feeble mind will understand what comes after until or if we get there. Sorry if you see that viewpoint as arrogant and useless posturing. But that's the way it is. That was an Indiana Jones joke...The "Choose wisely" thing. Just in case you or anyone else didn't get that. : ]
  8. You hit that one right out of the ball park. Can't trust a single damn Quaker. And those Jainists? They'll rip you from limb to limb. I can't tell if you're mocking me or not. Hard to translate that over text. : ]
  9. Sorry, but there is literally zero evidence at all that god exists. ZERO. A book written thousands of years ago by MEN proves absolutely NOTHING. Like I said, if someone wrote Harry Potter back then, we'd have religious zealots trying to fly broomsticks off of buildings looking for the Golden Snitch that grants absolution and possibly immortality. If you choose....Wisely.
  10. Oh, wait, nvm. I thought this was the thread I created. My bad Leyrann.
  11. Just beat Dishonored. Very anti climactic ending, and the gameplay got quite repetitive. It was fun, but it could have been so much better. I played it on PC by the way. I beat the main questline on Skyrim. I just have a bunch of sidequests to do and I haven't finished up the DLC...Dawnguard? I went with the vampires. Also beat the main story of Borderlands 2, but haven't finished...Uhhh..Captain Scarletts Booty? lol Also, played a bit of the beta for Planetside 2. If anyone is in it let me and we can add each other. I've barely played at all and it would be a lot more fun if I had some people I'm acquainted with to try and learn the ropes. Not sure if I have any beta keys to give out. I'll check it out and see.
  12. Just went on a show binge and watched the first 4 seasons of Sons of Anarchy. Consistently brutal and dark, dark humor abounds, but it's the best show I've seen in awhile.
  13. Sam gives a whole new meaning to the expression "Pot calling the kettle black". He's pretty much the epitome of a hypocrite and probably the most intolerant, bigoted person on this entire site. I'm done reading his posts. Blocking him and saving myself from ever having to see a post of his again. It's truly disturbing and honestly I can't take it anymore. It's going to give me another seizure. You must really have some special kind of shit going on in your brain that enables you to reconcile the beliefs you hold. And don't insult both our intelligence's by playing the misunderstood card and giving me some bs speech. P.S. Organized religions are one of THE single most destructive and atrocious establishments in the entire world and should be done away with completely. I'm not saying people shouldn't believe in God, or go to church, or pray. But do it on your own, and stop trying to shove your beliefs down other people's throats and then accusing them of being anarchist atheists hell bent on destroying your way of life when they don't bow down and conform to what you demand they believe. If there is a God, and if he/she/it does give half a shit about what goes on in this world, I imagine he/she/it would very, very disappointed with the way established, corporate religion has been twisted into something so far away from what it was originally intended for. Tolerance, love, acceptance, peace. It's a real shame that something with the potential to unite and help people has been distorted into an intolerant, elitist club that persecutes and alienates anyone who doesn't believe exactly what you believe. I wish I could travel back in time and take the Harry Potter books with me so you would all be worshiping The Boy Who Lived and praying to Dumbledore to protect you from He Who Must Not Be Named. Fin.
