    I'm the model for the land-o-lakes butter company.
  1. [quote name='Korey'][FONT="Franklin Gothic Medium"][COLOR="Indigo"]I would pass it up on the fact that religious views have been argued to death on Otakuboards and I'd rather stay clear of the shrapnel, because someone always takes special measures to add their own opinion and shoot down the others and dismiss them as silly or even downright wrong. I'm all up for discussion, but arguing is rather pointless if neither side is able to concede even just an inch for their beliefs. Know what I mean?[/COLOR][/FONT][/QUOTE] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]It's not pointless if somebody learns somethi
  2. [quote name='Korey'][FONT="Franklin Gothic Medium"][COLOR="Indigo"] Exactly. I'm not about to argue over my beliefs with someone who obviously believes differently than I. I'll leave it at this. You say tomato.[/COLOR][/FONT][/QUOTE] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]Perhaps you prefer arguing with people that believe the same as you? I'm sorry but i just don't understand this. Arguing with another person who has a different view is such a great thing. You can learn so much. Why would you pass that up? Also, the questions i asked aren't merely a matter of belief. Nor do you have to believe
  3. [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I've been playing a lot of Starcraft recently on Battle.net. I was wondering if any Otakus here still play on battle.net and if they'd like to join me in battling evil. For the sake of discussion, anyone here excited about Starcraft II? My battle.net ID changes a lot. My current one is Dr.Manhattan. Feel free to hit me up on battle.net. [/FONT]
  4. [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I'm so glad you two spent the time to let me know you're not going to participate in my thread. How very thoughtful of you both. =D[/FONT]
  5. [quote name='Sabre']If we are to believe that God made this entire universe, and the heavens, then it is possible for him to be everywhere at once. [/quote] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]Did God create the entire universe?[/FONT] [quote name='Sabre']Can he create a rock so big he can't lift it? Why? I'm sure he could but what is the point?.[/quote] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]If he could then it proves that he is not omnipotent, if he cannot then that too proves he is not omnipotent. That's the point of the question. [/FONT] [quote name='Sabre']why should God remove human suffering, wasn't
  6. [quote name='Sangome'][SIZE="1"]I watched both of Bush's inaugurations, and I don't remember stuff like that being used at all. I think that's just a tad bit much, no matter who it is... Also: Why does that amuse me so much?[/SIZE][/QUOTE] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I'm not sure on this one.... so please do look it up if you're interested and don't take my word on it. But i think because of the confusion with Florida back when Bush won his first term he was unable to get sworn in all fancy like Obama and other presidents. As for the cost of Obama's inauguration.... eh, whatev. L
  7. [quote name='Darren'][SIZE="1"]Oh boy, another one of [I]these[/I] threads. I am an atheist myself, ...[/SIZE][/QUOTE] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]Dad-gurn it! I want a believer to reply. I'll give it some more time. [/FONT] [quote name='Darren'][SIZE="1"] I think that in order for God to end all of these things, he would have to constantly kill all the bad people in the world. It would certainly show his presence, and people wouldn't do bad things anymore. We wouldn't have war, murder, torture, rape, etc... However, in that sense, he would be taking away a human's right to choose. Some
  8. [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I am agnostic. Sometimes i argue with a person of faith (almost always of the Christian faith) about religion or god. And most every time that i do argue with someone else on this subject i eventually ask two questions at some point in the conversation. [B]1. The omnipotence of God. Can God (or any being) be omnipotent? [/B]Is it even, by definition of the word, possible? I think the classic question is: Can God create a rock so massive that he himself cannot lift it? This of course is impossible in that both possible solutions to the answer suggest a God that is not
  9. [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I've come up with a few candidates so far. The tentative list: Xbox 360?? Probably not. New phone? Doubtful. A chair? I could probably get this any old day, no reason to waste a christmas gift on it. Mommy and Daddy to get back together? That's so sad! And totally made up. Gee, i guess i haven't really got a good christmas list going. I've actually just realized that i'll have money this year to buy other people gifts. This is pretty exciting for me, i never have money. Now i just have to figure out what to get everybody. If anybody's got some ideas i'
  10. [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]Don't worry, pal, I'm in the same boat as you. I don't know crap about politics, and i'm damn proud of it! Well, maybe not that proud. Whenever someone asks me my opinion on politics i simply tell them that i don't like politics. I typically try to be as pretentious as possible when i say that and i may even throw in some negative political cliche. Politics is just a bunch of liars lying to one another in a broken system, etc. Of course, that doesn't mean i don't care about the subjects. Anyways, i don't have any idea how to answer your question... i think AM had a g
  11. [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]Uhm, i don't know anything about making drinks. There's this one podcast that's called "Tiki Bar" that is like a comedy show that features a new drink every episode. They give the exact specs to make the drink along with the name. So, maybe check that out if you want some more interesting ideas and a bit of comedy goodness. I do remember drinking this one drink once.... that was quite tasty. I wish i could remember what was in it. I want to say it was mountain dew, everclear, and something else.... or maybe that was it. It didn't taste like it had any alcohol in it a
  12. [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I agree, Chibi you've got a great smile. Now, being a woman, you must learn how to turn it into a weapon. ...maybe you could tie knives to it? Nevermind...[/FONT]
  13. [quote name='Raiha'][COLOR="DarkOrchid"][FONT="Times New Roman"]Speaking of silly little quotes I feel moderately compelled to point out that such a hope is vain. And his sentiment was one that could be easily interpreted to mean that all conservatives are stifling his goal of a socialist America. So in short, all dissent would disappear. That's not an admirable goal in the least, that's insanity.[/FONT][/COLOR][/QUOTE] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]If you want to consider the hope vain, that's fine. But i don't. Why don't i? Well, it's mainly because i know that hoping for those ideals is good
  14. [quote name='Raiha'][COLOR="DarkOrchid"][FONT="Times New Roman"] I think it speaks just a little too well to your mild....neuroses that you would love [LOVE] to live in a one party nation. I think I read this book once. What was the title? 198-something. Oh rats I can't remember at all now.[/FONT][/COLOR][/QUOTE] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]Forgive me for chiming in at a random point. I haven't read many of the previous posts, but for some reason have felt compelled to respond to this little silly quote. The sentiment to want to live in a world free from argument, drama, and tension
  15. [quote name='Vicky'][SIZE=1]I was a rather blunt statement, but what I mean is people often state it is unnatural in human nature above all and I was referring to humans as animals. The very fact that [i]it happens[/i] suggests that it's probably nature. To make it clear, I don't care at all whether it's nature or not. We are not nature anymore, and I see the whole 'unnatural' thing as a fallacy itself. Therefore any statement of it being against nature is downright silly.[/size][/QUOTE] [FONT="Trebuchet MS"]The speculation that because their is homosexuality in the animal world it i
