Topic: Serious Discussion / Are there really things known as Soul & God & Ghost???

Most logical argument narrowed into a TLDR: It cannot be proven or dis-proven, so therefore chance of the possibilities of souls, deities, and ghosts cannot be calculated or argued with empirical data. Therefore, this conversation is discussed on an emotional and speculative level.

Personally, I prefer Deism because it makes the most sense out of all religions. Scientifically, though, atheism makes the most sense when considering all theories. It’s fun to talk about, but I don’t really think your personal preference matters in the long-run, just don’t kill people or be a dick.

I wonder if that has anything to do with the tongue -in-cheek death threats you make.

Well you know what? fuck you all, how many times I will have to explain that?
Wait a sec, why am I giving a fuckabout a total stranger on internet?

Because Ninja is a human.

I would discuss science, but I wouldn’t trust any sources used on an internet forum.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is Kongregate getting boring?

Originally posted by Helltank:

IMO it’s the pay to win games that are screwing everything up. If I ever hear the words “you have to wait x number of minutes to recharge your energy” one more time, I’m going to seriously quit non-indie multiplayer games.

Also some good games like ROTMG were taken over by shitty game companies and corrupted. ROTMG used to be awesome because everything except clothing and extra storage chests were free. Now everything costs money and the new coders are so shit that everyone’s hacking the game and items freefall in value.

I believe John Stewart said it best.

You get NOTHING. You LOSE. Good day, sir. Watching the republican party is like watching a child try to throw all the money from the board game of monopoly into the trash because he lost the game against his more educated father.

The best argument as to why Canadians don’t follow the United states into conflict is because they are the most educated country in the world. You don’t follow the laughing stock of first world countries down with the ship.

“Back when the Bible was written, then edited, then rewritten, then rewritten, then re-edited, then translated from dead languages, then re-translated, then edited, then rewritten, then given to kings for them to take their favorite parts, then rewritten, then re-rewritten, then translated again, then given to the pope for him to approve, then rewritten, then edited again, the re-re-re-re-rewritten again…all based on stories that were told orally 30 to 90 years AFTER they happened.. to people who didn’t know how to write… so…” -David Cross

Topic: Serious Discussion / Due to Breaking Bad

If you took the time to watch the show, you would realize that it teaches you to NOT try crystal meth. Many of the actors (such as Jessie) have had to spend time talking with real meth addicts. The people who use meth within the show are shown as crazy, and many are homeless people with many psychological problems. IF ANYTHING, the show stops many people from even trying meth out in the first place.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Gay Marriage

Speaking of language, the bible was never meant to be read in english. Homosexuality is perfectly natural, but going against your natural desires is. The bible (as in the real hebrew bible, not the makeshift King James) points out that it is immoral for gays to go for women, as lesbians should not go for men. Likewise, straight men or women shouldn’t go for their own genders. There is absolutely NO evidence supporting the claim that homosexuality is not natural. All scientific evidence points towards the fact that homosexuality is part of nature, such as the studies on the lesbian relationships of koalas and how children of homosexual relationships actually end up having a higher IQ and better social skills overall.

Education is power.

Topic: Serious Discussion / What is the current quality of this forum to you?

Nevermind. There’s a clear lack of understanding between criticizing someone’s practiced logic and the concept of logic itself.

(hahaha…. Wattro)

There used to be a time when I would post on serious discussion threads all the time, but then I realized that in the long run it wouldn’t make much difference in the world. What I have learned from this forum category is how to form an opinion and back that opinion, while still reasoning as to why one person would think against me. I used to view my opponents as idiots, but over time I have learned that they had just formed opposing opinions from their own experiences and conclusions. In the threads of religion, I could argue all I want, but nobody would let any argument get in the way of their beliefs. I could shove fact after fact at their faces, destroying their entire argument piece by piece, but that didn’t matter to them. After religion threads broke the point of respecting one another, it became a thread of personal bashing until it slowly died off with the most stubborn person keeping the last laugh. On government, I’ve seen my opinions shaped over and over again over the years ( barely four or five years, but years just the same), as new political issues arose on the forum. Great arguments were given back and forth, arguments lasting well over 3000 posts. Honestly, the majority of the posts were arguments about what the definitions of the debate were.

I don’t really see how I have moved other people on SD, but I know that it has allowed me to learn how to to see the thought process of my opponent. Even if I can’t change their view, I understand how they think, and give them empathy for the various stupid or understandable ways that they came to that opinion. I began posting because I was hot-headed and knew that my views were right, but now I’ve seemed to cool down as I have realized that nothing I say or do will change the ways people think, but only make me more tolerant of their stupid and illogical viewpoints. To prove my point of how meaningless most of this is, this post will most likely be viewed by several people, get a regular amount of response, and be forgotten like most of the posts before it as the sub-topic of the thread changes and people begin to lose interest.

Topic: General Gaming / N64

Yea, many of the games are going for a high price if you manage to get them new. A new mario cart is going for around 400$ new. Super smash bros is around 350$ new. Super mario is going for 350$. It sucks that the only games I own are used, because the prices of each game goes down to about 30$ each. I’d say that the experience of playing the games as a child was worth much more than not opening the package, though.

Topic: Serious Discussion / How Far Should We Be Pushing Our Ideals?

Originally posted by Trickymist98:

Nah, taxes go towards things, that’s true, but they’re a huge waste of resources and the free market is consistently more efficient.

Or are you saying we have a good public school system?
Or are you saying we have a good police system?
Or are you saying welfare programs and social security aren’t 2 of the biggest things wrong with our economy?

I’ll agree with you we do have a powerful security, ie. military, but that really only shows how interventionist and violent we are towards other countries.

The Ron Paul approach. I completely agree that too much of our money is spent on the military. The military is swimming in equipment and warehouses full of tanks that they don’t need. It’s quite obvious that the tax money is going to the wrong places instead of bolstering our horrible public school system that is ranked near dead last within first world countries. If you hate taxes, you should be thankful that you live in a country like America. People complain about it, but it’s barely anything when compared to other countries. Texas doesn’t even have a state income tax.

My only fear is that if we put the education system in the hands of private groups, they would end up neglecting teaching the students. Louisiana already has the problem with teaching creationism and ignoring things like tectonic forces and biology within public schools. It scares me for the future 0.0

Topic: Serious Discussion / Gene Patents

What about being able to patent your exact genetic code? Such as being able to clone yourself, and only yourself. On one side, I feel that it is un-ethical to own the genetic properties of certain things, but on the other hand I feel like I should be able to legally own my own DNA sequence.

and what can ‘we’ do about it?

We, as in us, here in this forum.

Absolutely nothing

I agree, the general public can’t change anything without an intellectual revolution for sciences within the entire population, not just a select few people…something that is definitely not going to happen. Anyways, the CO2 increase is mainly due to the drastic decrease in photosynthetic algae, along with excessive deforestation. It is human caused, that isn’t even an argument within the scientific community anymore, but it is nothing that a regular citizen can solve. Scientists, under-payed and living as underdogs within this society, even with the massive amount of data and documentation they have to support the idea, don’t have enough power to change anything within the corporate world or government. They are simply ignored.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Does God exists? and why?

Theist or atheist, what is up with all of this talk of violence? Just be a good person and nothing else really matters, as a God who requires you to follow a moral code isn’t a worthy God. The subject of religion isn’t a subject to become a warmonger over, or even something worthy of being passionate about. A wise person would stick to being a good person through only a secular view of the world, not acting upon his or her own religious beliefs, but to benefit the good human nature.

These threads are becoming tiring and un-productive. Everything has already been argued before, and it is just becoming a series of personal attacks.

I have evidence. You want me to link up the ****ing evidence then just ask me, goddamn. You know you should be a bit more kinder in forums, you starting to act like a **** now.

Guys, this thread isn’t for personal attacks. Sorry if you felt offended, we end up chasing away so many of the god-believers that it’s a rare occasion that credible ones actually come along. I don’t believe that a god can be dis-proven, but I also do not believe that god can be proven either. I’ve seen and learned too much to believe that Jesus could be any type of deity, or has been connected to any deity. I can believe in a God that cannot interact within humanity. I don’t want to be a downer on everything, but your main evidence is a preacher using a pathos argument to instill awe of god without using revealing any scientific data that would go against his word. I respect that, but I could explain everything he talked about.


I’m not a preacher…i’m just trying to explain it. I don’t want to be a preacher and you can’t prove that God exists, so i do hope that people look for other reasons that aren’t apart of science. Science is too much of a materialistic view of things.

If science could collect data on immaterial things, we would. It’s not that we prefer the material view of the world, it is just that material appears to be the only plane of existence. If immaterial things existed, they would happen to become material, because we would eventually be able to identify it and its functions. Believe me, I would love to include God and religion into the scientific community, but there is no evidence to support it. The bible was written by humans, it did not fall from the sky. Your prophet is a human. There isn’t a consistently appearing deity from the past, or now, within all of the available religions to choose from. I would love for there to be a scientifically proven god, believe me. I would love for a God to come down and teach us how hating each-other is wrong, how these ignorant wars between radical religions are only creating more problems, how it is stupid to hate gays for following their natural psychology, and how it is stupid to use old teachings like slavery and sexism to bend society. I would Love for a God to finally come down and correct this all, but, sadly, if a deity does exists he obviously hasn’t shown him/her/itself to humanity.
