Topic: Serious Discussion / Is Atheism a belief system?

Originally posted by TheBSG:

This is a technical question. Theism isn’t a belief system, and neither is atheism. Buddhism is an atheistic belief system. Humanism is a non-/a-theistic belief system. Catholicism is a theistic belief system. Are there organizations of atheists? Absolutely. But atheism itself only relates to one aspect of belief a person has, and doesn’t imply any other beliefs at all.

Couldn’t’ve said it better.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is Atheism a belief system?

I’ll leave my input here:

I don’t honestly think Atheism itself can be a belief system in itself because it’s simply the belief that no God exists, which can be tacked onto another belief system without correlation. For example, I’m an agnostic Atheist, as well as a Buddhist.

Topic: Serious Discussion / A sign of desensitization to violence via Creepypasta?

Originally posted by mysticvortex13:

there are no “recent” murders that occured over things like this as far as i know.

there were a couple girls several years ago who thought they could summon slenderman by murdering a friend, but that’s a dated story.

then there’s just last year when a guy tried to imitate the joker, shooting up a theater during a showing of batman.

but the guy didnt even use nitrous oxide, he used tear gas instead. tear gas is batman’s weapon. joker uses laughing gas.

if you can name anything more recent than that, do tell.

There was more than just the one, there were three media-covered attacks linked to that incident.

There was actually a more recent killing near my location. A person on the internet calling himself Jeff the Killer convinced yet more young girls to commit acts of violence against their families. Though I can’t find any articles about it because 1) It was undercovered even in my area. 2) Googling anything linked to crimes linked to creepypastas just give you links to creepypastas, which I see as unintentionally covering up any real incidents.

EDIT: Found one, also, may I point out that one of my stepsisters (13) is very likely to adopt a similar mentality in the near future.

Topic: Serious Discussion / A sign of desensitization to violence via Creepypasta?

So in my travels to the various corners of the internet, I discovered something I find unsettling. Creepypasta Role-playing and people who turn creepypastas into cute loveable things. Now, I like creepypastas, some of the stories are brilliant, but where did this obsessive appeal come from? The two groups are affecting the stories as so: The roleplayers are simply roleplaying as the killers or ‘proxies’ of them. I find that in itself disturbing, of all things to make-believe as, why a homicidal psychopath with a disregard for human life? The cutepasta people are making these disturbing atrocities into love stories ad roleplaying as such with others, which I find equally disturbing. It’s like roleplaying Ted Bundy as a loving husband, or acting like Pennywise is a non-demon friendly clown, it makes no sense, and with the murders that have occurred recently over things like this being taken too seriously I think it’s a sign of a much larger issue within this community. Can someone give me some insight into this?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Deepest Fears

This is more of an interview topic of sorts. Not for anything to be published, but more for my personal gain of intellect.

What is your deepest, darkest fear? I want you to delve into the depths of your own psyche and come back up with a story of your true fear and why it’s there.

If anyone would like to hear mine, just ask, but for my concerns currently it is irrelevant.

So are the numbers you are giving me the numbers displayed, or are those the adjusted for % numbers?

First number was what is showed, the second number was what it gave per click

Make: 14 (1/17)

Car wash 30 sextrigtilliom, 3.3 (1/10)

This is with 100octoquinquagtillion Angels or so at 35% an angel

Alright, just to clarify:
You have gilded 5 businesses:
Newspapers
Car Washes
Pizzas
Donuts
Movie studios.

But only two of them underproduce:
Newspapers
Car Washes

Along with lemonade stands.

Did you use more than one ticket on any of your businesses? How many and which?

I haven’t used more than one on any, (didn’t know you could, it hasn’t prompted me to)

And yes that’s correct

Altogether I should be getting 4sexagintillion/s

I’m getting 0.9 sexagintillion/s

Just figured out that if I double tap the apple home button to view all open windows it moves at a normal speed there, but nothing else gives it full boosts.

I’ve notice of same problem since last update

Okay, so it’s not just me… Yeah I’ve hit a point where gilded investments would have me a good 200x farther than I am now, but the 777% hasn’t affected the actual gain so far, only the display.

Btw, I’m on the newest update on iOS

I’ve determined the best strategy to balance this ratio out, is to not spend angels on a an upgrade taking any more than around 60% of your angels.

Topic: Serious Discussion / A question for fellow Lovecraftians

Originally posted by ImplosionOfDoom:

It might not even be ‘cannon’ to the original cthulhu mythos, might be a ‘generic’ eldritch abomination or an idea that’s based off of some amalgamation of multiple things from the original mythos.

After all the Evil Dead wasn’t intended to be strictly follow Lovecraftian cannon, so perhaps ‘fanfic’ rules apply and it might just be ‘an original character’ created specifically for “The Evil Dead” franchise… Or something like that.

Also, wasn’t Shub-Niggurath described as having goat like hooves on at least some of it’s appendages (and leaving behind hoof prints, thus giving it the nickname “the black goat of the woods with a thousand young”)? I’d rule that one out.

I expected as much, and I know it wasn’t truly reliant on it, but there are a few aspects OTHER than The Necronomicon. Albeit loosely, but it’s there.

The dagger, though never explained, is clearly from some cult activities. The book was found somewhere in an Egyptian looking temple, so we can assume this is the same Necronomicon to be written Abdul Alhazred or a similar character. The insanity and extreme paranoia is a main feature that ties it in, whether they intended it to be Cthulian or not, Ash slowly breaks down throughout the movie in a Lovecraftian manner.

And this looks frankly quite like Cthulhu, even if very vague.

Topic: Serious Discussion / A question for fellow Lovecraftians

The movie Evil Dead, the old one from the 80’s, contained a large fleshy beast they refer to as ‘The Evil’ as the final antagonist of the films climax. The Series if VERY reliant on H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, so I’m wondering what this creature is. Any ideas?

Here’s the most-likely names I’ve seen:
God of the Red Flux
M’Nagalah
Nycrama
Shub-Niggurath

Any other speculations?

Its vile the child was taken away for some pot smoking. Very sad the girl was killed by her foster mother, CPS dropped the ball on this one. But so did the birth parents, you never admit to pot smoking to any official. They have laws they need to follow if they agree with the pot smoking personally or not.
Never admit anything.

You just made an account and are spam-posting on all the forums as rapidly as possible, slow down.

Yet, strangely, it’s okay for the parents to smoke weed in nearly half of the country. In this particular state the offense is considered SO HARMFUL that the child is removed from the environment and placed in a different environment that the authorities consider safer, but that ends up killing her.

The implication is that smoking pot is so harmful that an intervention that may result in a child’s death is reasonable… “because the parents should have known the law.”

Gross.

Was that like an “Ew” gross? because I find that to be accurate.
