  1. Just played a bit. It's fun.
  2. Well that's different for Jackie Chan who usually does comedy action.
  3. Well damn.
  4. I forgot that it premiered on Sunday, but luckily I was able to catch up on the first two episodes. The Saint of Killers is a pretty scary dude. Wasn't Genesis able to affect him in the books though?
  5. So even though your gear won't carry over to Destiny 2, but your look will, and returning players will get exclusive icons, I wonder if Bungie will have something in place to do that for players switching to a different platform. Maybe by linking your Bungie account, so that way if you switch from PS4 to PC, it won't treat you like a new player to the franchise.
  6. I watched that movie for the first time the other night, so I understood that reference!
  7. Of course Muslim isn't a race, but you know full well that Islamophobia is the irrational fear and/or hatred of Islam and of Muslims. The examples are all over the world with anti-Islam protests, attacks on Mosques, people wanting a Muslim ban for the US, etc. etc. Critiquing is one thing, we are allowed to critique things, but hating on someone because of their religion is wrong. If you don't like the term "Islamophobia", and would rather it be "anti-Muslim", or "Muslimphobia", that's one thing, but Islamophobia is the term we use today, just like homophobia is the term we use to describe the irrational fear and hatred of homosexuals. I wouldn't call that mockery. It's a flippant, and disrespectful generalization of a religion, that does not describe it's followers as a whole. There are gay Muslims. There are Muslims for gay rights. Yes there are some that interpret the Quran and follow it so that they execute gays, and that's horrible, and we should absolutely unite to fight against that line of thinking, but sharing a stupid meme like the one above is not helping in the slightest. You are a self-confessed asshole, so maybe these sorts of "jokes" are no big deal to you, and you don't care, but look at it from outside your perspective, and realize how utterly rude and disrespectful it is. If we are to not only bring the jihadists/extremists/fundamentalists into the 21st century, and also eradicate bigotry and prejudice against Muslims, this sort of thing is not helping. You are a one not religion hater, so I wouldn't expect any nuanced, intelligent discussion on religion with you. There are pros and cons to religion, but you are so deep seated in your hatred, and snobbery of religion, and anyone who is religious. I believe religion is an antiquated line of thinking that the world needs to do away with as we learn more about the universe, but I respect other people's beliefs as long as they are not using their faith in a higher power to hurt anyone else. Do what exactly? Make disrespectful jokes, or call others that don't subscribe to their beliefs stupid? Yes I know, I never said they didn't, and that's a problem that should be stopped, but we as atheists should also not be looking down at them like their morons. If someone was brought up to believe that 2+2=5, you don't teach them better by calling them an idiot, you show them with reason, and understanding. And those are problems within THOSE COUNTRIES. Generalizing it as the whole religion, when there are Muslims for gay rights, is like saying that the Westboro Baptist Church represents Christianity. Maybe a bit of both. Again, when you call someone an idiot for their beliefs, they are going to get defensive, not be more willing to listen to you. When I was still religious, I heard the same tactics from a lot of atheist sources that used rather condescending tones, like "if you're a smart person...", and it made me pretty much say, "fuck you"; it was only the more reasoned, and respectful discussions on why there probably is no deity watching over us that made me rethink my religious views. I think he's incorrect as well because, again, there are Muslims that are for gay rights, so generalizing the whole religion as a whole, that Islam will execute gays, is disingenuous. You guys should read this Cracked article on how atheists argue their cause that aren't helping.
  8. Dawkins Tweeted this picture. He's a dick, and ultimately hurts the atheism cause. I know his writings helped a lot of people rethink their religious beliefs, and become atheists, perhaps some people on here even, but his caustic, and insulting manner keep a lot more from becoming atheists. If you back someone up against a wall, and call them superstitious and stupid for believing in a higher power, they're not going agree with you, they're going to stand their ground and defend their views. Insulting someone's intelligence is not going to change their minds, and I'm guilty of doing this too, but we need to do better.
  9. The point is that there are far too many asshole atheists on the Web and elsewhere that are just plain dicks to anyone that's religious. I'm an atheist in case you're confused, and misunderstanding me. I'm not saying all atheists are assholes, but that there are far too many atheists that act like assholes towards religious people, and use criticisms of religions to fuel their own bigotry. In terms of well known ones, Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins come to mind.
  10. What about asshole atheists that just want to blame a whole religion to justify their prejudices, rather than just the few that interpret the scripture in a violent way, and use their influence to amass a following of like-minded individuals, in turn allowing more prejudices like Islamophobia to spread?
  11. Let me clarify that she seems dumb because usually with fish out of water type stories, we can identify with the fish, because they are usually the main character, and they are usually experiencing something that we too would be in awe of, and learning for the first time through them, like Harry Potter for example. Diana just seemed too naive and innocent that if we met her, we'd be like, "gurl you hot, but you dumb!". Similar to Thor in his first movie, as he was pretty dumb lol. Again, I liked the movie, and thought Gadot nailed the role, but that was one issue I had.
  12. That's exactly what I am talking about though. I think a Star Wars comedy adventure film could certainly work, but it couldn't be too goofy to upset the universe of these films.
  13. If they were going for the type of comedy they did in 21/22 Jump Street, then yeah it would feel very weird, and feel like a Star Wars parody, but then again these Star Wars Stories are supposed to be different than the main Episode saga, so maybe a full comedy would be nice.
