Sadly I have to agree with Nuggetz. Started reading into the first Sin War book Birthright, and it's not particularly engaging to read. It's as if I'm reading a text book. Maybe I'm expecting too much since the last book I read was The Hobbit. But it's still rather dully written, the emotional context has no detail so it makes me feel distanced from the characters.
Does anyone know if his later books are written with more detail, or not?

Posted in: General DiscussionQuote fromTRUE christianity does not physically harm anyone.
So, uh..... what about the Crusades? Holy wars which were brought upon by the word of god.
Quote fromThe concept of a worldwide flood is so implausible that I'd label it ridiculous. Not only would it require God to first create and then vanish four billion additional qubic kilometres of water, which is by the way four times the water Earth has, it would've left a myriad of evidence that would be everpresent. There would be a geographical layer with so thick of plant and animal remains that you couldn't miss it. That layer does not exist.
However, there is evidence that the Abrahamic flood story might've originated from an extraordinarily hard flooding of the rivers Tigris and Euphrates. A hypothesis taken further by what is known as Ryan-Pitman Theory.
The "worldwide flood" theory is very plausible because the people of the time thought of the world as the surrounding area... I'm not sure what the Ryan-Pitman theory consists of but I'm sure it elaborates on this idea, that the entire world wasn't flooded, but there was merely a large flood which isn't implausible at all.
Quote from"A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider to be God-fearing and pious." - Aristotle
"Religion is the opium of the masses." - Karl Marx
Quote fromWasn't Russia one of the countries that persecuted Christians until the fall of the wall? I remember that Bibles were not allowed into the country and missionaries had to go about things secretly. Much like in China today, where the only recognized church is the government run one. Where Christians are still being put into jail and beaten. Which is interesting, since the underground Church in China is the fastest growing Christian Church in the world.
Nektu, you just proved that the Christian church is addicting like opium in China.
And Russia prohibited bibles and missionaries because the intelligent people knew that the stupid people would fall victim to the addiction that is religion.
I really like where this thread has gone, except for the homosexuality bit.
I think it is necessary for people to realize that if they believe in evolution, then they must at least accept that the Bible is not entirely factual. Does anyone have an argument against this?
