@segaside What's Mount & Blade about? Looks like medieval sieges but you tell me lol
Dobby where art thou
I was recently chatting to someone called Dobby. My connection dropped right in the middle of our medieval tale. Dobby, I have not forsaken you.
Without religion would people become more, less, or be equally morally corrupt?
people have manipulated others with religion a lot in the past, E.g the church used to sell "tickets to heaven" for a hefty prize all the way back in the medieval age. I personally think people would become equally moral or more moral
@lucifer_ All things considered, in the perspective of a commoner, the got universe is nothing but a medieval kingdom with many conflicting kingdoms at war with each other. Magic and other fantasy stuff usually don't matter much in the lives of a common people. So unless you get to be born as a highborn, life would be either shitty or really dangerous.

Mount & Blade: Warband is A Medieval RPG sandbox with some strategical elements and party management. It features large scale battles with troops you command, but you also fight with them. This resulting in possibly basic slaying of a couple petty bandits here and there or tracking their hideouts for lords, vassals and kings around the map (Calradia). To all out sieges on cities after betraying your king to start your own faction/kingdom. There are many possibilities!
At first, the graphics look very crap for A 2011 game but hear me out. You will invest hundreds, if not thousand of hours playing this! (But you don't need A God tier computer to run it, so that's A bonus.)
Depending on how you play, if you just want to be A bounty hunter ? Go for it. If you want to one day rule all of Calradia? You can do so however you please.
I could go on but there is just... SO much! There are a lot of things to learn when you play, but by the time you know what you're doing. It's just plain simple fun! If you finish the main game? (Which takes forever to do, and you will probably replay it at least 3 times as well.) Don't worry... There are Also mods... Lots! OF! MODS! :D (All the way From historical era's like French civil wars and Vikings, to Game of Thrones and Star Wars. You will never get bored.)
You will know the game once you play it because it's difficult to explain all the mechanics since there is so much going on!
Hope this gives you some idea.
Science and God
@thestrangest Lol....those scientists took everything from Quraan
Bullshit you uneducated medieval religious ignoramus, there never was any science in the quran and never will be. Adam and Eve? Bullshit we evolved from apes. God created the world in 6 days? Bullshit the world was created in one billionth, billionth, billionth... of a second at the big bang and took 13.5 years to evolve into what we know today. If anything it is clearly unscientific.
.....They thought initially a year have 10 months, then they saw Islamic calender has 12, then they copied that
Bullshit. A year isn't a fucking objective unit of measurement. A year could be 4 months, 6 months, 10 months or no months it is what's practical that we use.
.......Quraan and hadith had told us billion of years ago before the birth of science to do circumcision to every born new male child, and now science is proving that Circumcision reduces the chances of causing penis cancer and Hiv.......
Where is this research? How can i know you're not making shit up? Circumcision is genital mutilation and scientific research discourages doing it since it reduces sexual pleasure and sometimes causes problems in penis growth. Does it reduce chances of penis cancer? I don't believe so but maybe but so does Masturbation according to scientific research, isn't that "Haram" and i don't know and don't think it reduces Hiv but if it does then it's because having a circumcision makes you less willing to have sex which is bad. You know what does prevent Hiv 100% of the time? Condoms and that's a sin according to the pope and Haram by SOME muslims but not necessarily Islam
Quraan & hadeeth had told us billion of years ago to eat only properly slaughtered herbivorous animal only by Islamic law
Which is bullshit
(slaughtering it by cutting their neck big nerve while alive only, and give them sufficient time so that their body can cool down, then only remove their skin from their meat), not to directly chop off and cut off their head while alive, but now lol science is proving that directly chopped head from animal leaves behind the bad blood in their body and causes cancer if eaten.........
BULLSHIT. You are making shit up. Not only is this not true but science has proved that the Islamic method is more painful for the animal than the regular method
Quraan and hadeeth told us billions of years ago before the birth of science to drink water while sitting only Lol,
Where the fuck does it say that. I call bullshit
But now science is proving that drinking water while sitting is good for health
Yeah but the quran doesn't say to only drink water whilst sitting. You found out that science says so then changed your interpretation of the quran
it allows oxygen of water to be absorbed by every parts of body unlike drinking water in standing.......
Bullshit. It is better because the water arrives to your stomach harder when you drink standing
there r many proofs u just need to open the eye
There are 0 proofs. You are closing your eyes to science since you don't believe in evolution and probably many other scientific discoveries
our books r much older than ur science......
And very wrong not to mention it being homophobic, sexist, violent...
First things, first. Congratulation on the Internship. Next, if you are indeed tired, you don't have to reply to this text. You could reply when you are capable of. Thirdly, You can't just argue against my arguments and also, say that I am not going to read any of it. It makes you look bad...
In old times monks used to protect temples like soldures or should i say AS soldures
Let me give you the definition of soldiers, "a person who serves in an army." Did they serve in an army? No, then they are not soldiers.
We can say they were. They worked under a leader and fought in war
No, we can't. Echo the definition.
Okay, for starters, before the Sengoku era (~15th century), Ninjas, as we call it now, were a group of peasants who took to the arms, usually after being fed up with their Shogun. Hence, they were nothing but an angry peasant who did not make much of the impact. This is evident due to lack of documents of them since they were consisted of low-class people and did not have much impact in the feudal Japan. Hence, the High-class Aristocrats and Historians did not even bother enough to write about them.
It is only during the Sengoku period that people started to record their fighting style. We vaguely and collectively call it "Ninjutsu". It is also during this period that Mercenaries who were taught in this started to emerge. Since the way they fought was covert but at the same time dishonorable, many Shogunates hired them to do their dirty work.
Since they were hired and not served, they could not be considered as a Soldier. They also did not give two shits about the emperor. Actually, when I think about it, nobody gave two shits about the emperor. He was just a figurehead for the most part of the history. Also, they were dishonorable. Hence, no shogun would have the guts to openly admit that they hired Ninjas.
Now coming back to the point, they didn't care about their emperor. They just killed for the money and since they did not have a code of honor, most just killed anybody, including women and Children. There are documents depicting the ninja's killing numerous innocents, just because they were paid for. Now if this is not savage. I don't what is.
You said nation.
Sure but groups of people that can vaguemy be called nations live there from time to time.
Okay, I used the term "Nation" at the start of the Chain. So, let's go with it. The defenition of Nation is, "Nations are culturally homogeneous groups of people, larger than a single tribe or community, which share a common language, institution, religion and historical experience." Notice that they says, "larger than a single tribe"
live there from time to time
I literally said that they were nomadic. Hence they didn't "live there from time to time"
know it's hard as fuck to disprove a negative like this one.
then why the fuck did you argue against it by saying "but then again, there probably were"? You brought this question upon yourself.
No. In christian mythology god, yahweh is repeatidly described as all-wise, omnipotent...
I was just throwing a bunch of What if questions.
This is exactly why I said that you are not able to read between the lines and understand the context. I had to even change up the order of the statements so that the reply would go like a flowchart and thus, making it easy for you. This also shows that you did not argue as a whole but against each breakdown of a statement, which is a bad way to argue.
The point is we don't know. There's no evidence for that either way.
I see that you have conveniently ignored this statement. I wrote this statement for an important reason. It just basically states the purpose of me writing those what if question. By ignoring this statement, you were able to argue against those individuals what if questions.
JIGGA. CIRCOMSISION IS GENITAL MUTILATION
Oh, okay. I was initially thinking something entirely different.
Now getting back to this, The Bible never said that Circumcision was an absolute necessity. What it did says it that God told Abraham to circumcise himself, his household and all his animals. But the tricky part, here is that it is said to come from Moses himself and there are records showing that his son was not circumcised. And every single Christian was freed from these laws in the Book of Acts and that is why, Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant churches never adopted circumcision.
Here's a site that compiles all of those, http://www.cirp.org/pages/cultural/glass2/.
Although it is bit religious, you would get the point in the first few paragraph.
I'm tited of this conversation. Ok man let's say the bible does not comment on the shape of the earth
sigh If you are going to say this, why oppose it twice before. It just seems unnecessary. Why are so predisposed to argue against each breakdown of my argument? And no, I didn't decide that they were meant to be taken metaphorically. Historians Did.
Btw, did you even go to that wiki page? It's a common wiki page available to edit by anyone. It says right there that medieval flat earth theory was nothing but a modern-day misconception with quite a few citations. If you did and still said that it said that Earth is flat, facepalm Sad...sad indeed.
we know that people and the apostels back then did not know where the sun went at night.
I don't know what you are talking about. Citation needed.
u just admitted there were truces. I rest my case. The lenght of the truces do not matter for the argument
I admit that there was a truce and the length of the truce do matter for the argument. If it does not last for a significant amount of time, it has no purpose. What is usually the ideal situation for a truce? Most of the time, truces were after significant losses on both sides in a war. That means that it was already a violent situation.
Of course, I would wholeheartedly support that truces were indeed extremely useful in BCE, if you a give a small list of times where truces held in BCE were indeed effective.
Nice try, ignoring the last sentence. (The reason why truces weren't effective, as I mentioned earlier would be the lack of any governing forces (like the UN) watching over those countries and maintain the peace.)
First sex ed classes are normally at 12 y.o.
No, no, no, no. You can't do that. I specifically said, "again". That means that I was repeating the previous request, where I asked you to provide some evidence, that 7-12 year children all around the world, knew about "The Meaning of Life". I repeat "The Meaning of Life" not how to create life. There's a difference.
You previously said that we have all figured about the meaning of life. But I see that there are philosophers discussing it in the modern era. I think, you were thinking about "What is Life?" and not about "The Meaning of Life". There's a subtle difference between them.
Dude. Please im tired ok
Why? Just Why? If you are indeed tired, why are you replying now? You could have taken rest and had more time to collect your thoughts. Why argue now and say that you are tired? It's not like I'm forcing you to reply within a time limit. You usually take about ~2 days to reply anyway.
