First off, we have Saucy...


and then the Flying Spaghetti Monster...


Any relation?

Maybe two seperate individual gods?

Maybe just images from a diseased mind?

Discuss....

I don't know, but he IM's me from time to time... last time I talked to "Lard Man", (that IS Steve, right?) we had a chat about Half-life and it's various mods...

Is it just me or does it seem like the Spaghetti Monster wants to do some tentacle-esque lovin'?

Steve decided he hates me so he stopped coming here. It's my fault, blame me!

I'd blame Yevon too, but I already blamed Rahul and it's far too late to turn back now...

GO SAUCY!

Awwwwwww. Either its true love or she just happens to hate Yevon more than you. :wub: :wub: :wub:

That's right, I DO hate underwhelming final bosses that look like ticks and are just as agressive.

A little zombie always makes the battle that much easier. Who would have thought such a boss would be so bloody easy to kill. I also blame Yevon, for being too shit.
staff

Well that was the whole point, that he was easy to kill (and looked like something wholly undangerous). What are you complaining about?
pixel
He's more like "Yu Suck" if you ask me. . . :mellow:
pixel
Wait...Rahul's fleas are a final boss? And Rachel's in love with them? This makes about as much sense as that time that...wait, never mind, there's minor's on the board...

Scott Weinger apparently does still sound like that, since he did the voice of Aladdin in Kingdom Hearts....

Alright! Time for religious debate. Earlier tonight I had a 20-something-year-old tell me in utter seriousness that a homosexual lifestyle is definitely a state of sin and they would go to hell despite any redeeming qualities because they so ardently degrade the sanctity of marriage. I, for one, think he was a flaming pile of shit. Discuss.

Discuss whether he was a flaming pile of shit?

Well, let's narrow things down. First of all, was he on fire? Or did you set him on fire?
Secondly, did he consist entirely of excrement? How does a human being achieve that kind of state anyway? Is it even possible?

Thirdly, I guess we could debate whether what you "think" is at all relevant and whether it has any effect on another person's state of being whatsoever. If you think he's a flaming pile of shit and he's just, you know, not, then I guess the whole debate is just a waste of time.

I would set him on fire. so yeah he could be a flaming pile of shit. because people who think that way are obviouslly composed entirely of excrement, you can tell by the way it spews from their mouth.

UGH... yeah... sure, all gays are going to burn in hell... uh huh... yup... whatever...

I don't have time for that kind of crap... I can't help but look at morons like that and go "WTF?". Really, someone who bases all of thier life decisions off of a book, based off spoken legend, which conflict themselves, to which a "New" half of the story was added to, which dealt with the story of a guy, who was believed to be the son of this invisible creator of EVERYTHING, who lived this life of pacifism, who ticked off a bunch of Romans so bad they stuck him up on a big "t"-shaped piece of wood, after which his body mysteriously disapeared from a cave they'd stuck it it... WTF? Why a CAVE? Why not bury/burn/dispose of his body in the first place???

Heck, as far as I'm concerned, the whole reason the "Gays are bad" is because of the commonplace of homosexuality in ancient Rome, and how big a part Rome had in the New Testament... "Rome does it, we don't like Rome, so it's bad"...

Anyways, as part of that is probably incorrect, any "That's not how it went" comments will be ignored... I've read the bible a few times, but found it to be a neat, although wordy, work of fiction... (My AP Psychology teacher used to refer to the bible as the "Greatest Work of Fiction man ever created"). And as such, like any other book you've read, parts are forgotten/misremembered, and if the stories in teh damned book were based of SPOKEN retellings of it... *sigh*

OK then... where was I? Oh yeah... What gets to me is the fact that people, the world over, base their entire life, thier decisions, etc on this single bound book of stories (ok, there are different versions of the book, but the story's basically the same in most of them)...
pixel
Methusalen, you're a good man/chocobo.

As to the cross and not being taken care of further? It's because the cross we see normally is incorrect. The horizontal plank was much lower, also with a foothold for the hangers to barely touch with their feet. The reason it hung so low was so the wolves could come and eat them as the people slowly died of infection, dehydration, loss of blood, etc.

And the Bible being fiction? I agree on most of that. After all, it's people who wrote, people always put in what they think is right (either by culture or stupidity).

As to the flaming pile of shit - he obviously had shit for brains, and in my mind's eye, I was already setting him afire for his indecency.

I believe Christianity is very much a plagiarized religion, if I'm not mistaken. I've heard from multiple sources that it takes a lot of influence from religions like Mithraism and ancient pagan beliefs. I find it religion amusing, especially how people are readily willing to believe the absolutely insane. When I had gone to Catholic School, my teachers would always go ape over stories about a talking fish in a market, or people freaking out because a face that looks like Jesus was burned into their toast. People will always chalk up these things to a message from a higher order rather than what they really are: pure coincidence.

As for flaming piles of shit, I've only come across one person determined in lecturing me about how I'm "mentally ill" and that I should "go see a psychiatrist for a cure". Of course, the said person was immediately ignored and never spoken to again. I'm not even sure if he was motivated by religion, but it matters not, as he was a complete fucktard. Everyone else I've come across has been really cool about it, family included. Granted, I don't go around saying "I'm gay! Love me!", but the reactions to it when I'm asked about it are pretty funny, mostly because people can't tell. The thing is, you can't let people like those under your skin. Henry Rollins once said (and I paraphrase at best) "If someone hands you a plate of shit, do you take it?" - of course not. If anything, I let those said people become subjects of amusement. I find it hilarious how utterly ridiculous they are. Thats about as much of myself I will ever give them.

To me, the problem with Christianity isn't neccesarily the beliefs but how some people try and interpret them to support their own agendas/prejudices, and/or force those beliefs onto people that may not want to follow them. Also, the Bible is clearly not meant to be taken completly literally, if you did everything exactly as it is said there your actions will most likely end up contracticting each other. I guess those are problems with religious fundamentalism in general, rthough.
