Both Christians and atheists are non-believers. The only difference is the number of gods they don't believe in.
Christians don't believe in hundreds of different gods, atheists don't believe in those gods either, but additionally they don't believe in just one more than the Christians. Atheism and Christianity are clearly very close brothers.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Seriously, folks, can anyone actually confirm the existence of these alleged Containers of XXX Spam?

Most people turned off containers on their overview a looooooooong time ago. You only need it on a tab specifically for looting.

It still hurts to look at other people's overviews in screenshots sometimes.


This. You viewing these cans is optional.

Either:

A. Blow it up and it's gone
B. Turn it off your overview and ignore it

I'm more curious as to what people's views are about ingame religious solicitation, namely Amarr. Does RP cross the line when dealing with religion, or is it generally acceptable as it's part of the EVE universe?

Well to be honest, I can't think of a better place than a violent internet spaceship game to spread the word about your personal magical friend.

Yet another reason why highsec is OP.

This nonsense would not last 5 minutes in lowsec and even less in null.

Anyways, I'm sure they got into this with the best intentions, really...

But they are also believers of their own convictions.

Yes indeed, they both are, well put, though it's not good English to agree with somebody starting with the word "but", some people may misconstrue your reply as trying to be cleverly argumentative.

Meh. Don't like it, ignore it. Or else don't complain when Christians criticize something you say or do.

The problem with atheists is that they don't have no songs.

The can spam should be removed!

But if others can can spam, no reason christians can't!

Do not assume anything above this line was typed by me. Nerf the Truth, it's inconvenient.

People who ask for tolerance seem to forget that it works both ways.

Why do you think an atheist has to be tolerant? I'm an atheist and I would ban and persecute all religions and try to eradicate this stupidity once and for all if I was a dictator with the power to do so :)

A preference for reason has little to do with tolerance for unreason and insane beliefs.


You don't realize that you're just as wrong here as the religions that do the same to atheists, do you?

They're opinions. I hold the opinion that pretty much every religion is a scam that grew beyond its creator, or a feel-good story to help simple minded people fall asleep at night. But you know what? I don't throw that in people's faces. Live and let live.

If you want to make the world a better place, you have to learn to get along - not try to make everyone agree with you. Getting offended by something like this is pointless and just plain stupid. It accomplishes nothing.



I don't do this that often but I am going to go ahead and give you a couple of likes. Well-put!
