Why was Adam exempt from the transgression when the transgre 39 Morality and Religion 9/12/14 5:34pm
Gnostic Christian Bishop
That's also somewhat of a myth. Education was less generally available, sure; but it was by no means absent. Also, what's described for the "medieval peasant woman" may well describe farmer families in the 18th, 19th, and even early 20th centuries - and some societies, whether incidentally or intentionally, even today.

Why Are Gamer Girls so rude? 175 Gaming Discussion 9/16/14 3:49pm
Mister Fedorable
Why are you generalising that based on one experience? A fair chunk of my Steam friendslist coincidentally happens to be "girls playing a game like L4D2" - and several other games that you'd likely stereotype as being MANLY MAN games; and I don't know any of them to be antisocial. Most of them would respond just as coldly to your overtures, however. I've never heard of a custom in which ...

Why was Adam exempt from the transgression when the transgre 39 Morality and Religion 9/12/14 5:34pm
Gnostic Christian Bishop
Because Paul says so. It's pretty consistent with Paul's view about women when contrasted with men; these are different from some of his better-known "exclude ALL the distinctions!" statements. But it does boil down to that, in the end: Paul was unlucky in love, and wound up blaming women for it - so naturally in HIS churches and HIS gospel, women are to be equal with respect to Christ, but ...

Theology 63 Morality and Religion 9/17/14 5:06pm
Nika Vladilen
One of the most amusing "sticking points" for me when someone says that the Bible and science match up is this. Gregor Mendel, a late 19th century Catholic monk, discovered some of the rules by which genetic inheritance occurs. In Genesis 30, Jacob is seen being able to intentionally manipulate allele distributions with a set of rune-carved quarterstaffs, consistently propagating double- ...

Crazy Bible Verses 65 Morality and Religion 9/18/14 3:20pm
X MagicalYuriToa... X
This one takes a bit to set up. Genesis 6:5-8 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The Lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and he was grieved in his heart. The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping ...

Favorite Opening Cinematics? 22 Gaming Discussion 9/8/14 6:59pm
Mitsuki the ninja
My thunder's mostly stolen - because I'd absolutely have put Wild Arms 1+3, PSU, and Soul Edge (though Sophitia's nudity was gratuitous even though it wasn't showy...) but I can still offer a couple. 1. Choukousenki KIKAIOH / Tech Romancer. This is the "anime" version of the OP. One of my favourite games EVER, for the record. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2-UpK0r2hY By the way: before ...

Suicide prevention, has no value. 20 Morality and Religion 9/9/14 8:45am
Culdra
Part of it is making sure that suicide is really what the other person wants, rather than being a knee-jerk reaction to s**t Happens. Maybe they don't realise that there are alternatives, or are afraid (or ashamed) to pursue them. Or maybe their "reason" is absurdly petty, and they just need an extra moment to chill out. Sometimes it's a matter of a chemical imbalance (as some forms of de ...

Do you think Krystal should be in SSB4? 10 Fighting Games 9/18/14 8:12pm
MangaFreak325
I wouldn't want her in. Personally, I'd go for Gandrayda (from Metroid Prime 3,) with her Shang Tsung-like polymorphing ability handled through a special attack kinda like how Kirby gets his hats; or Dark Samus, as a different "version" of Samus similar to how Toon Link is different from Link, or Luigi from Mario. --- As for how many female characters we have, I can confirm 8 ladies and 4 t ...

Situational Music 4 Table-Top Gaming 9/8/14 1:32am

One DM that I had would boot up Castlevania 4 - the actual game - and pull music off the sound test for Ravenloft mood music. It was rather effective.

D&D DMing playable characters - Questions 12 Table-Top Gaming 9/13/14 7:18pm
Zeddicuus
Perhaps terminology is more useful. Generally, when people hear "DMPC," they understand that to be a regular member of the party, controlled by the DM acting as a player. It's a fine line between temporary ally (eg, someone who's hired you for escort duty,) henchman (NPC companion that serves as a sort of extension of one of the PCs,) and DMPC (an NPC that finds regular use as a party memb ...

Favorite Song Related to Games? 39 Gaming Discussion 9/5/14 7:07pm
General Isaac Jackson
If you're asking about OSTs, then in general, Soul Blade (PSX conversion of Soul Edge, featuring Khan Super Session) tops my list. If you're talking about songs ABOUT games... I could muster up quite a few, and may visit this thread occasionally to drop some. Here are two. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2z29Rk8814w Could apply to any manly fire-using mage, really.

My DM as a sick since of humor 15 Table-Top Gaming 9/12/14 11:29pm
Crazy Judit
I don't find that amusing in the least. Amusing is polymorphing the 6'0" half-elf that has (and can fully wield) the Hammer of Thunderbolts... into a gnome. Or, for that matter, into a 5'10" half-elf. (In second edition, you had to be 6'0" or taller to even attempt to use the Hammer.) Amusing is rolling the dragon's magical loot before the encounter, and including the items in your strategy ...

Dead topic. 51 Chatterbox 9/3/14 4:23pm
_Leon Camero_
You can certainly quote Bible verses to try to support a fulfillment of prophecy; just be prepared for a tangent discussion concerning that support. (And if it's Matthew with one of his "so that the scripture might be fulfilled, which says," be VERY prepared.) (Edit for fix: saying "prophecies were fulfilled" WITHOUT being specific is a lack of discussable content = spam = a trip to Chatte ...

Prophesying and Evangelism doesn't equal discussion? 60 Morality and Religion 9/13/14 9:51pm
_Leon Camero_
Well, we can certainly discuss the deontological implications of being faced with a duty to follow seemingly arbitrary rules, such as this forum's rules. Debating the rules themselves is a bit more "out of bounds," but I can offer some insight into this one specifically. We tend to exclude proselytism because it often takes on the character of "pamphlet" style posting: the preacher's inten ...

Oh Jesus ******** Christ. 140 Extended Discussion 9/1/14 2:38am
Times Of War
My use of the copyright sign should be a clue. As I mentioned to Cu, though, it's not far from how I perceive the extreme position. In short, it's offencive because they conflate "protect yourself" with "you didn't protect yourself." And to be fair to them at least, it's a line that needs to be emphasised much more than it is. My main concern, however, is that even after we install all the ...
