Re: The Christianity topic

While I don't agree with your views, I find your take on salvation pretty interesting. Personally I lean more towards the "salvation through grace" end of the spectrum. That, as John 3:16 states, all who believe in Jesus Christ will be saved, not just those who happen to have been picked by God. Als...

Re: Where are you heading?

I've been doing some more Programming lately. I've been working on a groovy little platformer that I hope to get done in not too long. It's also a bit of a self study into the effects of short-term-reward strategy on my motivation and ultimately my ability to finish something functional. In essence,...

Re: The concept of good

Well, you don't really do you? there's a great book called " The year of living Biblically " that details the trouble of following all the rules. I bet you wear mixed fiber clothes for instance. And even so, there are a great many denominations in your faith that all interpret things like female pr...

In this context, I'd define Evil as more or less "The opposite of what God wills" which sounds simple enough, assuming we ...

Re: Games other than Star Control

Y'know... I'm that guy... the one with all the questions... and the tons of posting. Gee, that really isn't specific anymore. I hate growing old :/ On an unrelated note, it appears that Gearbox Software disclosed a Release Date and Trailer for Duke Nukem Forever !!!! You need to see it. It's awesome.

Re: This is a picture topic

Ah that makes sense. That theme I mentioned is also based on Pascal. And I agree, black text on a white background burns the eyes. Especially at night :-X-smf
