Eh, I don't really want to talk about religion (I've already been lapidated twice this week and it's only Thursday) but this needs some clarifying. It was an oversimplification and technically a joke as pretty much everything I say.

The idea behind religions is pretty nice: they generally tell people to be good, help and love "thy neighbour" and so on. Unfortunately, religious people tend to fight for their religions while not understanding them. Or claim to Believe and don't even try to be good as their god tells them to be.


I can summarise this by quoting a Polish marshal, one of our great National Heroes. Just swap "nation" with "religion" and "people" with "followers". He said this about Poland. And yes, it's a genuine quote, translated literally by me.

Atheist it is, for me.

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, I knew that this place was a home for me :3 >wwwwwwwwwwww<
Videogame developers are not gods that anyone should worship. I hereby decide that is my top existential reason to prove that horrible, horrible misconception, because that is becoming annoyingly rampant in every corner of the internet.  They can deserve critism, or thrashing even. It doesn't even need to be constructive critism. And even if you are a free game developer doesn't mean community is your personal ego farm.

Ummm. Not everyone here is an Atheist. Like, I'm a Christian.

Edit: And I also think discussing religion here has the potential for lots of trouble, so ... :S

Guitar solo of freebird is awfully repetitive. So is some of the music of freebirdgames (To The Moon and A Bird Story main themes). Mind=blown, universe implodes, illuminati confirmed.

I wouldn't say that the TTM and ABS music is awfully repetitive. Yes, much of it is the same main theme, but altered in a way that fits the story. Repetition isn't always a bad thing, and I feel like Reives is good at showing that.

And as for the topic of this thread, I identify as a Christian, but I feel like many people are bastardizing the teachings of Christ by judging others and being too self-centered, much like how ISIS and other groups are bastardizing Islam. My views are constantly evolving and changing every day, and looking back, there are times where I was agnostic, even though I didn't really acknowledge it. However, I try my best not to identify people and judge them based on their religious views.

I didn't say it was bad anyways :P Music of TTM and ABS are brilliant, that repetitiveness is something that I can tolerate, it gives them their flavor I guess. But on the other hand I don't like Freebird's solo though.
