Again, I don't think the lifestyle is ancient because all aspects of the lifestyle can be applied to today. Also, teaching Christinan beliefs is not forcing anyone to be Christian just like teaching Biology is not forcing anyone to be a biologist.

So, are you a new guy? You talk like you're pretty familiar with us, but I obviously don't recognize the screen name.

Can you tell I'm a hockey fan?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 8:30:04 AM PST
Same here. Go Blackhawks!

Although, baseball is my favorite sport.

New-ish, let's put it that way.

A few days ago I was derided and dismissed as a "troll".

Of Course!

I'm from the planet Blarg, I enjoy your earth dish "swordfish" and I'm actively looking forward to the end of the world on your earth day "December 21st."

Oh that's just your initiation.
Everyone new is called a troll it seems.

Well, you've been very untrollish in this particular thread. Just give it some time. We've been burned pretty bad by trolls so I think everyone's very... wary of new people.

Also, I am afraid that as you are a Blackhawks fan we can no longer be friends. GO BLUES!

Awesome! I think we both gained XP

It was Bulletstorm.

FOGE says:
Yeah, possibly. I think I insult people everyday and I just have to live with that and do my best to not lose sleep over it.

Also, Im not offended by you, but you have a very narrow mindset, meaning you are likely insulting people here as well. I know, not everyone here is Christian. And I can respect everyones beliefs. I even agree with a lot of them.

That troll thing happens a lot. I think we are so burnt out on trolls, that whenever a new person acts different that what we are used to, we jump the gun. Dont get discouraged. it takes time, but youll find acceptance here.

Just because I think Christanity should be taught in schools and the Bible is not a joke does not mean I have a narrow mindset. You just disrespected my belief by calling the Bible outdated and a joke.

Are you serious with all this nonsense? Would you like my home address and blood type as well?

Doom was attacked for its violence and Satanic imagery, though..

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 8:39:49 AM PST
Well, it was mostly Oskar2525 and even then it was unfounded. I started a thread asking for advice because although I still play video games, I've taken up other hobbies and have begun to play video games less and less.

Oskar tore me a new one.

While Doom and other violent video games have been blamed for nationally covered school shootings, 2008 research featured by Greater Good Science Center[33] shows that the two are not closely related. Harvard medical school researchers Cheryl Olson and Lawrence Kutner found that violent video games did not correlate to school shootings. The U.S. Secret Service and Department of Education analyzed 37 incidents of school violence and sought to develop a profile of school shooters, they discovered that the most common traits among shooters were that they were male and had histories of depression and attempted suicide. While many of the killers-like the vast majority of young teenage boys-did play video games, this study did not find a relationship between game play and school shootings. In fact, only one eighth of the shooters showed any special interest in violent video games; far less than the number of shooters who seemed attracted to books and movies with violent content.[34]
