I'm the sole creator and proprietor of the Mass Effect Fan Group here on Mod DB, blood of the Dragon and Trollborn.
- That is all
We went from criticizing belief systems to having to defend ourselves against racist, sexist and islamophobic accusations. Hitchens is rolling in his grave.
As Archduke said, no one is preventing you from posting what you want. I think the problem here is that you think the 'group' as a whole has some sort of obligation to balance the opinions of it's members, this is not at all the case. The group members post what they want individually as long as it pertains to the theme of the group. The moderators and admins are not here to balance everything, only to get rid of spam and troll comments for example, the balance comes from the group members themselves.
So I would say if you are unsatisfied with the one sided nature of the content, then post dissenting opinions. Or voice your displeasure in the comments section (as you and several other people have done on this video).
And by the way, I can't help but notice the fact that TheUnbeholden is probably the only anti-muslim in the group, on almost all of the anti-muslim videos, the comments are all people arguing with him. So when you say the group has been taken over by anti-muslims you are being disingenuous, intentionally or not.
It is up to you and all the other commenters I see on all of these videos to voice your opinion, as of now it has been in the comment section only but if this isn't enough for you then feel free to post a video or a picture debunking TheUnbeholdens opinion instead of arguing with the admin that it's one sided, as this will accomplish nothing.
EDIT: Puu.sh Here is the issue here. It is not our responsibility as admins to censor TheUnbeholden, nor is it our responsibility to make sure all possible views are given the same exposure, that is the responsibility of the members.
yeah that does kind of suck, I kind of cheated the system by doing Ruler Designer. You can give yorself pretty much every trait you want (ie Genius, Strong, Master Mage). And then just slap on lunatic, wounded, stressed etc. until you have yourself down to whatever age you want. Then when you start the game just use the magic system to remove lunatic, wounded etc. so you don't immediately die. Then wait until you get your 60 magicka and cast the immortality spell.
I guess this kind of breaks the whole idea of roleplaying, as this method is probably equivalent to just playing Skyrim and cheating all your skills to 100 immediately. But if you really wanted to you could limit yourself with just master mage and genius and go from there.
Yeah RTS seems to be a dead genre. I mean there's basically Starcraft and that's it. I haven't played it but there was also that game, 'Grey Goo' that came out recently, as Feillyne said.
Seems to me that 4x strategy games are much more popular, as well as TBS. Endless Space, Endless Legend, the Civilization games seem to be at the forefront. As well as Grand strategy like Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, etc. And i'm really looking forward to Stellaris.
Just look at the AGOT mod, they can't release a new version until Paradox fixes their event triggers (which were broken in the horse lords update). I haven't looked at CK2 modding at all but i would hazard a guess as to say it's the same situation with Elder Kings, in which case there is no way around it, Paradox just needs to fix their own code.
Good to see you're still doing stuff. Sometimes I like to go on nostalgia trips around here just to see what everyones been up to, who's inactive, etc.
multiple lines are one sentence, for example the last two lines are one sentence, which is what Commander said. You're taking each line to be individual which it is not (that's not the way these types of poems are written).
Woah i'm Canadian.
Yeah, i forgot to mention that if killing a lot of the animals would seriously damage the ecosystem then i dont agree. Like obviously killing endangered animals is a not a good thing to do. usually they have quotas for this reason i think.
As long as you use the corpse (ie for food, the pelt etc.) and its a clean kill, then i don't see a problem. Stuff like killing an elephant for the tusks and not using anything else i have a problem with, or wounding the animal and letting it die slowly.
Dark Souls for sure have a much richer lore. You can spend hours reading about all the stuff in game, and just experiencing Lordran. However if we're talking about Gameplay, Dark Souls (especially PC but not exclusively) has bad multiplayer to say the least. With all the hackers and such it kind of ruins it. Although it still can be very fun. Also the PC port of Dark Souls is very poor as well (with the super sensitive camera and such, but there are mods to fix it). I can definately see why you prefer Dragon's Dogma in terms of gameplay.
Pretty much word for word what everyone decides on.
Sorry, i can't hear you guys over my free healthcare and higher standard of living. lel. Also coloured money is cool
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.
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.
