    posted a message on Angels exist, yes? no? maybe?
    Lucifer wanted to make it so we had no choice, so we would all choose right and go back to heaven, he wanted this plan so he could get all the glory of saving mankind. But God's plan was to give us agency and trials. If we had no trials in life we would not become as strong as we could. I am not talking about war, that is lucifer and mans own creation, due to intolerance and pride. Jesus volunteered to be sacrificed and to be our savior, but not for glory, he did what he did out of love and said the glory be thine(god's). And what some may see as "superstitions" others may call Faith.

    I know this is only a bitter argument where the atheist type people will only disagree and try to discredit religious beliefs, but oh well, it still will never change what I believe.

    Because everyone follows your religion? Everyone believes it should be one man and one woman? Everyone believes in marriage?


    I for one will never be married. There are other ways to be legally and religiously bonded then some dumbfuck marriage that some pope sanctions is only proper for some people but not others.

    Only reason you should have intercourse is love. Nothing else matters, if you are truely and honestly in love, nothing else matters.



    Oh, and the idea of religion in schools keeping the peace is bullshit. Back before the religous movement began, things were peaceful and there was no religion in schools and there was no mass killings like columbine and the postal incident.

    Pope? I didn't say anything about a pope, and I never said religion should keep peace in schools. What does marriage have to do with a pope? I thought it was a legal thing, where you have to get a marriage license and all that.(won't post my other points on what marriage can potentially be)

    And I never said everyone has to go by my beliefs, I simply stated what I believe.

    I knew my posts would piss someone off, but I thought about the whole religion in schools thing and wanted to post my view.

    If you want I can edit my posts so they don't say anything.

    Quote from "Obalobex" »
    The morals and outlook of today's youth have become more worrisome. While I was blessed to be raised in a well off community and never had serious family problems (other than an extremely bitchy mom), this is not the case for most of the youth in America. Most Americans are brought up in broken homes, and with more than a 50% divorce rate (as well as illegitimate pregnancies), young boys are brought up without a positive role model and support from a father figure.

    The whole 'sexy' movement is a fad and imo, should not be viewed as such an evil. Yes a line has to be drawn and parents must tell their little girls that by dressing in a scantily clad way, that they are sending out signals that they are sexually assertive (which is generally a bad idea for those<14). It is Christianity in the first place that has chastised sex and the human body in our society (think about all those naked sculptures the Vatican castrated). Sex should be considered a beautiful and great thing, and not kept hidden and ignored by the parents, leading their kids to experiment to figure it out for themselves. And because of social things like the parental neglect, kids WILL have unprotected sex at a young age and possibly ruin their lives. The abstinence only policy given by the church is not going to stop this and so protection must be handed out if needed. I'm tired of people scapegoating things like Britney Spears or rap music or Marilyn Manson for things that are deeper, social problems that need to be adressed as a household, and nation.

    Don't say that... You are hurting your cause by labeling yourself a fanatical.

    I'm not fanatical, I just have strong beliefs. I don't go out on the streets shouting to beware temptation or anything like that. And sex can be a beautiful thing if between a man and woman and within the bonds of marriage. And the things about Britney Spears and stuff, I don't follow that crap, its worthless how people worship and obsess over hollywood. (not saying that you do, just how others do)

    If the religion in schools argument is still going on heres my take.

    There are no morals in society or in schools today. Every other word is a curse word, females wear clothes so small or revealing they might as well not wear pants or shorts. (skirts/tiny shorts) Children's minds are tainted (any word or phrase can be twisted so it pertains to sex). Middle schools give out free condoms, I mean come on middle school!

    If religion was in schools these things would be less prevalent, (at least if the one I belonged to was)

    BUT, I do not believe religion should be in schools, I believe parents should be teaching their kids BETTER MORALS.

    Society in general could be taught a few things also. PG-13s are now as bad or worse than rated R movies.

    All these things have now been deemed acceptable in society.

    Basically, Satan is doing his job quite well.

    I played maplestory 132 Night Lord biggest waist of time AND money. I'd rather spend 100$ on WoW instead of that or i could of bought diablo at the time.

    I never spent a dime on MapleStory, but I did play it, (level 43 mage) Even that took forever, the leveling was sooooooo slow in that game. Yeah I agree that game was a waste of time. And I also hated how everyone sold stuff for really expensive, so the only way to buy something good was to rip other people off or to spend actual money to get game money.

    Most MMO's suck, the only really good one I have played so far was Mythos Beta, but since flagship studios has only a skeleton crew left it may not be finished or may take a long time. I hope they land on their feet.

    EDIT: Almost all MMO's are very similar. Same setups, same gameplay, the only reason I played so many is because they were free. I think I am more of a hacknslash guy, thats why I have played Diablo for so long.

    posted a message on Shrines?
    Gem shrines were so rare that they did not really make it "easier" And sometimes you didn't even have a good gem to use with the shrine. So I think gem shrines are fine. Always liked getting them.

    Shrines in general are cool.

    They should keep difficulties but there should also be longer acts, and the game should be longer than D2 was.

    Quote from name="Murderface Cody" »
    i think in diablo 3 they should make it harder to level, i mean, in diablo 2, i got to level 88 in a weekend.

    I only play singleplayer and it took me forever to get a level 78 barbarian, my highest level character. I think you are talking about in multiplayer. I don't want them to make it harder, it was already very slow for me towards higher levels.

    I didn't like how some skills became very expensive to use as you added to them.

    If you are mastering a spell or attack shouldn't the cost to use it go down not up?

    I could guess. In my barb I still haven't gotten Immortal Kings Armor. I did so many runs over and over trying to get it too. Oh well, I haven't played that character for a long time anyways. I put a lot of time just into that one character.

    posted a message on Diablo 3: really short in length?
    Even though it is all about replayability, I would like Diablo 3 to be longer than Diablo 2. If it is longer there is even more to replay, all the better. I think it will probably be longer, they are trying to flesh out the world and make us feel more immersed in it and we are going to be visiting more areas in Sanctuary. I hope it is longer, but it is too early to know or worry about. And yes, I have spent many many hours on Diablo 2 haven't we all? That is why it is such a great game, even though it wans't very long we have been playing it for years. (the many mods out there also helped) I know when D3 comes out I'll be spending many many hours on it, but I still hope it is longer than D2.
