  1. PC is definitely tops for shooters. For everything else, unless I had a great PC, i would say consoles are better. Just because you KNOW the games are going to work, and keyboard/mouse isn't great for every genre, while controllers are pretty versatile. I also prefer the online, because I don't like xfire all that much and steam forces you to buy a steam game before you get all of the features. My console of choice is the Ps3.
  2. These forums seem to work better everytime Ross says there is a problem. Let's keep these "problems" coming, I say.
  3. I thought people did like these. Well Battlefield, at least. I've heard no one plays Eternal Silence
  4. The series makes up a fair chunk of my favorites list, so I skip it. I'm going to say Half-Life 2.
  5. Driv3r... Everyone says the walking sucks, and it does. But it sucks in GTA, too.
  6. This is what the next Star Wars battlefront should be based on
  7. As far as I've ever heard/read, it was solely the work of Darwin, not the scientific method that devised the theory of evolution... Biology is chemistry and physics in living organisms. What proof do you have that they never said anything to refute evolution? How does it support it? Again, how? Still not saying anything about how they didn't find/report any contradicting evidence. Just because that's what you remember him for, doesn't mean he wasn't a scientist too. What does his particular field have to do with anything? I see nothing in genetics that supports evolution, and much that supports creation. Again, how does a particular field remove them from being able to refute evolution? *see last response* Messing with plants doesn't deal with diversity of life?!? What universe do you live in? *see response above the Carver response* Well... Can't see as you've defended anything in that post... So do you have any scientific evidence that supports creationism? Wait, let me guess. The answer is no. Creationism obviously shouldn't be taught as science. Only a religious nut would disagree.
  8. I like all of those options! Except for most country music. Rock is always my #1, though.
  9. Not that I know everything they've done, but from the top of my head I can tell you Pascal, Boyle, Faraday, Dalton, Maxwell, and Joule certainly aren't known for anything regarding this topic. This isn't about religious scientists.
  10. Top 5 is too hard. I love HL2 & episodes Shadow of the Colossus Legend of Zelda series Donkey Kong Country 2 LittleBigPlanet Killzone 2 (best online MP i have ever played on a console) these are just off the top of my head. Videogames are awesome
  11. I should techinically like FO3 more, because it's more my style than Oblivion, but Oblivion was great and Fallout just didn't do anything for me. I actually think it kinda sucks...
  12. This is the only picture I have.
  13. The thing about evolution is that it seems no matter how far back you go you can always ask "But where did that come from?" So if you say we are here because random particles happened to bunch together to create a being that eventually evolved into humans.... how did the particles come to be? I believe in the theory of evolution but it's impossible to trace everything back to it's very beginning. So yeah I think evolution should definitely be taught in schools. it could be useful to study religious texts as well, but all these things should be taught as theories. Whether or not you want to believe in evolution or creationism, it's good to know both sides. And you don't have to take religion literally anyway. There are good things to be learned from them even if they turn out to be totally false. Religion is more about Philosophy than Theology for me
  14. If you're a woman and you're gonna have sex with people, you know you might get pregnant. I think they have a responsibility to keep the baby. Give it up for adoption. Don't have an abortion because you "don't want it." The truth is it's YOUR fault you got pregnant and you don't have to keep the baby after it's born. This discussion is rather pointless in the end because no side is going to sway. The answer just seems plain obvious to me.Whatever. Majority wins, I guess, whether you like it or not.
  15. Then why are you for teaching evolution in schools? It isn't proven, which leaves it in the realm of a belief system. (religion) It has a lot more scientific merit than creationism. If we teach nothing, we won't get anywhere. Maybe someone will prove evolution one day. We should teach evolution in the later years of school, but we should also teach kids a bit about the various religions of the world. Religions have importance whether or not they are true. I don't have to believe in any sort of God to be influenced by the words of Jesus or Buddha or whatever.
  16. I think animals belong to the group of sentient beings. Just because we cannot communicate with them does not mean they don't have their own thoughts or feelings and are just as much sentient beings as we are. Even if we feed on them, they deserve to be treated with respect. This ^^ I mean, if you ever owned a dog or probably any kind of animal, this would be obvious.
  17. "To outlaw abortion would be contrary to the right to life. The right to life includes the right to freedom of mind, reason and action for yourself. Forbidding a woman to get an abortion would be contrary to her reason, that tells her it would be detrimental to her own life to keep the fetus." Ummm.... and to get an abortion is to prevent a child from living. I think the "right to life" includes the right to be alive. Since the child gets no choice in this (doesn't matter if you consider a fetus a child or not, the fact is that it's going to be) the same freedom you are giving to the woman is being taken away from the kid. That's just plain selfishness.
  18. mixed all the way. Anarchy is impossible, and mixed is more stable then straight capitalism
  19. Great soundtrack indeed. SotC is also the best work of art in all of gaming. At least that I know of. It's a deeper love story than much of what you'll see in movies, even though you get no background details and the girl is dead throughout the whole game.
  20. I'm not against killing animals for food. We need food to survive. I am against hurting animals, though. This might sound like a pretty radical viewpoint, but I think animal abuse is often worse than killing a grown person. What do animals do to you? Especially housepets. People can hurt people, but your dog doesn't mean to do any harm to you. They may not be "intelligent" but it's obvious that they have feelings. It breaks my heart to see an animal in pain. Obviously the same should be said for humans as well, but when you see some of the things humans do....
  21. This was an extremely rare occurence used in the most dire of circumstances. It wasn't so much done when parents couldn't take care of their children as it was when there weren't enough resources to keep everyone in a community on their feet. Perhaps I was wrong. That illustrates my point even better, anyway.
  22. well hopefully by then we will have efficient fusion reactors and alternative energy sources for powering cars. fusion power could be a huge advancement if it could only be perfected. That generates a ton of energy but unfortunately to sustain it we have to use so much energy it's not really worth it.
  23. I really don't see how anyone could support this. We have so many options now if a mother doesn't want a child. Having an abortion seems like a very selfish thing to do. Unless of course the baby will be born with serious life altering defects. then it's a bit of a grey area that I think should be looked at on a case by case basis. The rape thing is another grey area I don't really wanna get into. I understand how it could be traumatic, but I'd still lean towards "pro-life." That's a tough one for the girl. I recently learned that Eskimoes would actually kill their children. It sounds bad, but they would only do it if they could not take care of them, and even then they would give the child to another family if possible. What we are doing with abortion is just drawing the line at a different point, and sometimes for different reasons. Bottom line, if you are a slut, suck it up, give the child up for adoption, and grow a responsibility. Same goes for couples who just aren't ready to have kids (except for the responsibility part, of course.) The other situations are tough to say. If I sound insensitive, it's just that it seems so clear to me. I'm not a religious person at all, I just think the kid should have a chance. None of us know what death is like, so why not let him/her experience life while possible?
