Re: The New Convert Thread - MAKE YOUR FIRST POST HERE

Welcome to the forums! Here there be all kinds of true believers, doubters of everything, rationalists, irrationalists, pirates, myths, jokes, games, a cabin boy with a Jyant Hat, a dog named Milo, and even a guest shaman who sometimes writes long-winded apologetics of natural philosophy. Have fun a...

Re: Vengeance

"Revenge" also being the name of the Dread Pirate Roberts' ship... a noble lineage of vessels!

"The Night Chicago Died" by Paper Lace... wacky '70's!

I like to keep a few "gems" like that just to break up the sensee of higher art in my itunes:)

Re: The Your Banned Game

You're banned for reminding me of how I used to get to see Monty Python, Dave Allen at Large, a full episode of Dr Who, and then 2 Ronnies all on the same night. I loved sunday nights in those days, but I didn't get much sleep :)

Re: Vengeance

From the Online Etymological Dictionary: “vengeance (n.) c.1300, from Anglo-Fr. vengeaunce, O.Fr. vengeance "revenge," from vengier "take revenge," from L. vindicare "to set free, claim, avenge" (see vindicate).” This is a post I decided not to make last year, but now I...

Re: Validity of Pastafarianism

Welcome to the forum, Minister Roni! I think you have made a valid perception there. Most people have come to dread their gods and essential worship their devils as equals (dualism). In traditional/ancient times, religious festivals and services in many cultures were a time of joy and fun (ok, maybe...

Re: Validity of Pastafarianism

Anyone who wants to generally monologue can find their way to the "World of Other Stuff" or "Rant, Rave, & Misbehave" section. There are several ongoing threads which are ideal for such themes. As far as validifying/apologetics of Pastafarianism to others, I can think of a fe...

Re: Idols

Most orthodox religious people pray "towards" something, whether it be an altar, a particular city, the four directions, some prayer beads, up or down to the sky or earth, etc. It's only idolotry if you pray "to" it as if it really was your god itself. Since the true Noodly Appen...

Re: Indoctrinating children

Proper gods have no nemesis. They need no nemesis. They are self-sufficient and harmonized within themselves. That said, some proper goods exist as a form of balance between various aspects. The zen-taoists have the yin-yang (which is not a personal god but a direct pantheistic balance/transformatio...

Re: What's The Last Movie You Saw?

Hmm... looks like I get Alien Resurrection Sigourney, then. (as Dr. Smith said: "A monster knows its own"). I watched Kymatica (2009) yesterday. It wasn't sure what it wanted to be, something about the future and enlightenment and sloppy pseudoscience correlations and harmonic waves and le...

Re: What's The Last Movie You Saw?

Today I watched "War, Inc" (2008), a sort of sequal or re-set of "Grosse Point Blank" (an awesome A+ character movie I rate up there with "January Man") starring John Cusack and many of the same actors, including his sister Joan as a mercurial co-agent. There are also s...

Re: Watcha listenin' to?

A latin proverb on the arm of a proud Scot, one of the few peoples who stopped the Roman Empire, is quite surprising, although I certainly find the sentiment appropriate. (From my readings, only the frisians and suebi so frightened off the romans.) It's like "sisu" among the finns. In the ...
