- That is all
Very nice. There's no way im gonna have time to read this with my actual school stuff going on, but very nice upload.
I actually didn't read the books. I thought it was fine though (if very predictable, oh he was really fighting the aliens for realz? WOAH didn't see that coming). TBH there wasn't enough character stuff for me to care. There the main guy, the girl, the douchebag who becomes a friend, etc.
I liked it because i love sci-fi in general, i can watch the cheesiest sci-fi **** and still like it (I watched all of Stargate SG1 in like 2 and a half weeks)... Not saying SG1 is cheesy, but lets be honest, the first couple seasons were pretty high on the cheese factor...
There are no good or bad choices in Witcher 2. There are some which are less bad than others lol. I personally always go with the elf guy (forgot his name, its been awhile), but he still kills innocents too. That's why i like the game, because it forces moral decisions upon you where its not just 'do you want to be good or evil' its 'if you choose the good choice more people will die, if you choose bad less people die'. Witcher is the perfect example of how video games make us think, and weigh moral choices.
lol yes Insanity is exactly right. "random ordinary religious folk", if by that you mean the Clergy that supported Hitler and Franco then... Yeah.
The socialists attacked clergy because they supported Franco, and by extension, Hitler.
Again, you don't care what Hitler says unless its about how he hates Christianity. You pick and choose what you listen to.
yes i did, that's why i asked you about a quote that was in the link lol. I'm not sure what you think i meant when i said "That link also claims..."
Yes i am aware that Hitler was anti-religious, and I also know that many Christians supported him. However those can be found in history books instead of the sketchy websites you linked.
I never said Hitler was Christian, it's very obvious he couldn't care either way. When he started persecuting Jews the Christians were happy to support him though.
As for what i was talking about (since you didn't understand me the first time ill link pictures now)
Check your sources, half of those don't cite anything.
1. Talking about religious schools being shut down alright.
2. The Soviets disliked the church for the same reason most catholics or others would dislike the vatican, they extorted the people. China disliked Christianity far before Mao came to power, it has to do with the fact that a bunch of foreigners came into their country, kept them down, and pushed their religion on them, its not different then the Natives in North America.
3. Pol Pot would kill people with glasses because he though they were intellectuals. We aren't talking about someone who thinks, we're talking about someone who acts. Claiming he was influenced by Atheism is laughable as he basically killed everyone he didn't like (not just religious people)
4. LMG was shut down after 1940 and churches reopened after the German invasion.
5. Yeah North Korea is bad to anything Western, this includes much more than Christianity. However, as your link says, this has to do more with the fact that they revere kim il sung, and not do with Atheism. Theyre persecuting christians because they are from the west, and that contradicts the teaching of kim il sung.
Finally, please read the article you linked last, I have a feeling that what theyre saying is the opposite of them essage you wanted to get across, but you didn't read what you linked.
Hitler's words which are 100% true when talking against Christianity but not true when he's in direct contradiction to what you say. Alright that seems fair.
That link also claims that Bolshevism is the creation of the christians and jews, which is of course nonsense since, as youve previously stated, communism is atheist.
I find it really sad that you actually deleted me from the group, considering the first post ive made here in the last couple months is the one above.
What Comrade does in another group does not allow you to censor him in this group. As clearly stated in the rules of this group you may take your personal debate with him to the forums, or you may PM him directly to resolve this.
His final thought i found very interesting, that anyone who is curious about the world around them is a scientist/investigator, and that this is more important that science. Now, i half agree with him here, as someone who has been burned for this, yeah i agree the idea you're getting accross is infintely more important than the terminology you use. But at the same time, the terminology (for the most part) is there for a reason, in order to distinguish one thing from another. If you were writing up a lab report for example, you're gonna want to be specific in the procedure otherwise your report is useless to anyone who wishes to reproduce your findings (which is important for verification reasons). However, he never gives any examples as to what he's talking about so I can't really know for sure (he says laws and rules which you can't question, but this can mean anything, such as the proper way to name bacteria all the way up to the scientific method itself).
Finally, him saying Science is like a belief system like religion with respect to the fact its run by people. Does this mean anything run by people which involves them believing in something is similar to religion (with respect to the fact that theyre both run by people)? As i said before it's not much of a point to make as Science and religion are different entities. Although they share the similarities of both run by people and both explain the unknown, i cannot then claim that they are then both the same effective belief system as im ignoring all the differences (which is ironic given that his first point was talking against how scientists supposedly ignore facts).
In a lab report you always have sources of error, as well as error calculations on your data. For most instruments its half of the smallest unit you can measure with the tool. On a ruler this would be 0.5 mm since the smallest unit on a ruler is 1 mm. This factors into your conclusion, same with the sources of error you encountered in the lab (human error, measurement error etc). So him suggesting that you can't be sure of what you see, well yes i can't be 100% sure, but that's what the error calculations are for. Him suggesting that scientists just measure things and just state that it is absolutely correct is not true, thats not the way it's done by proper scientists.
His point is that science is run by people, which is a fairly useless thing to say just because of that fact that i can make that point about anything else. He is right that some people are arrogant, and if they are in charge of something then it will turn out bad. but again this isn't a argument against science. My main issue here is not so much that he is incorrect (since he very well might be, As I don't personally know any people in the cutting edge of science i cant say either way), but just that this issue exists in every institution run by man, eliminating it is difficult.
It's a jab at r/atheism, if you go there you'll cringe.
This picture represents everyone on r/atheism lol, it's sad what passes for atheism on the internet.
I dressed up like Patrick Bateman to my friends Iranian halloween party on saturday. I was the only white guy there but they can party lol.
I think they qualify the volunteer work by saying that it has to benefit your local community, which would mean modding wouldn't count.
That's pretty much what I do too, i've boughten many games i've pirated because they're good. I've also boughten many games without pirating them, and sometimes they're very bad... So in a way i see TPB as a full game demo site of sorts, i figure between the games ive paid for which are bad, and the good games ive pirated and later boughten, im pretty much even.
Movies are the same for me, if they're good i'll buy them. TV shows I just pirate since i figure if you can watch them on TV for free, I can pirate them for free as well. That being said I did buy season 1 and 2 of Game of Thrones after pirating them so...
coolio, thanks. I'm fairly busy now with school and my midterms coming up though
Obviously because he has some paper and a phone... = science.
srsly this pic should be deleted
This really is too bad...
The linked article is from the Onion, this pic is meant to troll you.
ur back, blaze it fagit 420.
In Canada we have a bunch, but only 4 main ones: Conservative, Liberal, NDP and Green party. Thats the same pretty much for all of Canada except for Quebec which have a French Nationalist party. We have a bunch of other parties as well, but none of them really get votes. Also we have two communist parties, the Communist Party of Canada, and the Marxist-Leninist Party... Splitting the hopeless vote in two lol.
lol this is the third friend request i've gotten from you. Do you delete and re add people or something? This is weird.
I don't know why i laughed at this picture since it's actual pretty stupid lol.
Before anyone flames me, what i mean is that there are multiple psychological explanations for why he identifies himself as a female, some may be legitimate and some may just be from stress or something, that's the reason i have trouble just accepting these 'wrong body' stories. Like i said though my opinion is irrelevant to whether they should have freedom or not.
