Welcome on my profile. I am RTS fan, especially Generals ZH. I am looking for other players, so if you like Contra, TEOD, or any other mod and want to try with me, just PM me.

@B7Biscuit - That's why I mentioned theory of relativity. You couldn't see any effect until we came with world network and satellites. When Einstein came with it, it turned every mechanics we knew wrong. Yes, Newton's mechanics are still valid enough for our needs in small scale, but mathematical model and basis were ruined with this new theory. Yet this model is better and closer to truth than previous and that's why we are using it.
It is not same with question of our origin. While experiments and simulations behaved according to scientific theories of Big Bang and Evolution, there are still people refusing these. Or worse, mixing them together with God to get things like scientology and creationism.
Instead of accepting new, better fitting model, proved by many experiments, some people can't bear absence of God in this - trying to smuggle him in, or debunk these for all cost. Dwelling on easy answers that are as old as humankind itself won't push us forward.
To Tom Drake!
But why is it different to accept scientific explanation of our origin and other things and technologies? Do you doubt theory of relativity? I suppose you don't and if you do, well, your smartphone works because it counts with it. Why is it different with evolution and big bang?
Looks nice. What else are you planning to make?
If he created everything, natural laws must also be his creations. Gravity is attribute of matter, so he must have added that attribute, right?
But my previous point is that saying 'that's God's will' slowed development a lot. Just because people wanted to believe they are superspecial. Middle of all universe, kings of Earth. As we advance, our previous understanding proved or disproved and new knowledge can be almost unbelievable at first - Galileo, Darwin, Einstein,...
I don't think anyone doubts Earth position in space. At least I haven't seen anyone thinking that Earth is flat and middle of everything. Yet still I am seeing comments about Earth being 6000 years old and creation of humans. Why is it different to accept scientific explanation of solar system and our origin?
There were more people than just Galileo (Darwin for example). And while the church preserved literacy, they only preserved books that were pro-church and burned the other.
The problem is, the God is answer to any question. Without him, more people would study and try to explain phenomenons around. And those who did anyway wouldn't be afraid to show the results if those could be considered as heresy.
Well, for what I know, Hitler and those close around were interested in old Germanic mythology and also Asian mythology. For creating new pure race, of course.
This is so ridiculous as to debate which pope was actually devout. Dictators and manipulators used, use and will use religion for their needs as long as there are religious people (and then they will find something else). Whatever he said for Christianity or against is irrelevant (especially because he said both things). Everything he did was to strengthen his position, even propaganda of German supremacy. This also applies to all those nice uncles on next image.
Communism never existed. That's just a small correction, I don't deny the crimes that were done in it's name. There is even some analogy, isn't it? 'Big Stalin, father of nation, will crush his enemies (probably with mustache). What he does, he does for us and we have to work for him...' Only that heaven (the actual state of communism) was offered before death. Sounds appealing, having heaven in this life, right?
And to actual abortions - I think that being unwanted child is much worse than not being at all. No matter if born from rape, or from other reasons the parents wouldn't like the child, such child can hardly have a happy life. Abortion in this case can be understood as mercy for both the child and parents. Also I am not sure if this can be called murdering a human - since it's done long before gaining self-consciousness.
If I predicted that, I would be much more than just a prophet :)
Call me a prophet...
That guy reminds me of someone.
Perhaps because USA never came...
There is the valid point of argument that you asked: of course if you attack one group, members get offended. Striking back feels good and righteous, doesn't it?
Now why did you asked this (here?)? Isn't this obvious?
What did you expect? Of course it wasn't 'Ow, sorry, we are using even triple standards and we are very ashamed of it.' No, you wanted a flame war, so here we go. And yes I feel like on high ground now. You can disagree from your point of view, but that's all you can do about it. You can only bring me more (and you will) in your next post. And it will go from revenge to revenge until someone delete it - then it will be quiet for a while, until you (and I mean you personally) toss this here again.
It's not "my group". It's group I joined. I don't have to agree with every pic they post, but I agree with the general idea.
They post it on our group anyway, not to debate group directly under your nose. Feel the difference. You don't have to visit group you don't like.
My personal intolerance of your religion is that deep that I even forgot you exist. I can't really care less than that. It's the things you wrote that I can't tolerate. Every single comment from you I had seen was an attack. Not neutral, not defensive, but always an attack.
I think it is more likely that we connect directly with computer units, than enhancing our body. But it is tempting to get better immune system, or metabolism. Also unlocking full brain potential, or any other way to increase intelligence sounds good.
'With the time I've spent in this group, I have learnt that it's okay to debate anything so long as it's not atheism.'
And yet you are here again. There was some quote about doing something more times and expecting different result... Speaking about quotes, those should always be complete, or it's not quote at all (Sagan's part).
Whatever you, or anybody write here now was (on 99%) discussed before. You can only get same answers, or same answers with more emotions. Considering that you are doing this on purpose, doesn't that make you the aggressive and intolerant one?
Smart enough, or smooth enough? 'Well, it could possibly been that'
In the end, he said (surprisingly) nothing valuable. Smile and **** coming from it's mouth. One would say it's occupational disease...
'New York on turret' - my friend once used these words to describe his disgust with all those modern antenas and mounts. Pretty accurate to the last one.
Looks funny, but interesting.
At least you couldn't balk. The direction was sure and no other option than to fight was left.
Oww, please don't destroy it...
Even after reinstall, my old computer was ready to play after 15 minutes. But I guess notebooks have that quickstart ability.
I heard good things about Rafale.
I guess they meant that A10 is ground-attack plane, while F15 is capable of Air-to-Air fight and can use ground missiles and bombs as well.
Bombing is common in war... especially industry zones like Dresden. I thought you meant something different.
Yep, pornstars would know...
Who are they?
What happened in Dresden?
MB 339? That hint doesn't leave much space to think.
