You know, one of the concepts of Karma is that what ever energy is sent out will be returned to you. To say “I have bad luck” will bring bad luck. To say “I love you” will encourage others to be more open to loving you.
There seem to be a few potential oddities with the above. For example, does it mean that I can escape the effects of karma entirely by saying that karma has no effect on me?

I said it affects the exchange of energy, and potential of occurrences. Negative or positive thought dose not affect major events. For example lets say in a previous life a person beat their spouse and children. This person had no retribution and died a peaceful death. In the next life they would be born into an infant that would be a beaten child. They could be a person who sends good energy to the universe and is forgiving, thus allowing the better situation in the next life. But an old debt must be paid. That is to say karma is not a punishment, it is a lesson. Though reincarnation is an issue in itself this was the easiest way of stating that.

They say that karma can be replaced if proper deeds and thoughts are done. This is difficult to explain as it is not a rigid system. Loving thoughts build no new karma, enlightenment is absence of karma.

New Abortion Laws in General

The author states,
Quote: “an unborn child can have a penis and women don't have penises. That is proof that there is a separate individual human being involved”

And in the next paragraph,
Quote: “Does the dentist become part of the woman's body when he sticks his hand in her mouth to do her teeth?”

These are ridiculous statements. A fetus is dependent on its mother for life. It could not sustain life on its own until the third trimester. To compare it to a dentist with his hands in one's mouth is hardly accurate. To claim a penis as a sign of individuality is equally amusing. Last time I heard a one-month fetus doesn't yet have a penis. That is not a brain or a sign of consciousness anyways.

Creator, that entire article is one man's personal ranting. He offers no information on the development of the fetus. He speaks about the killing of abortion doctors, and makes claims that “pro-lifers” had nothing to do with it, who else would do that? If you were going to make anti-choice claims it would help to provide credible references that offer science rather than opinion.

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide this information. These are the common arguments between those who follow evolution and those who don't, in a never-ending argument between the two.

Spetner makes a comment in most of Max's turns using fairly bright blue type. As nice a color as it is it distracts for Max's comments. This makes this slightly difficult to read as Spetner speaks out of turn almost every time, clearly attempting to dominate the debate. Also Spetner chose not to elaborate on ware he feels the species originated.

I have done little research in this field and would be unable to debate this extensively. From what I have read from varying sources including this one is that there is no sold evidence for either side. Creationists being unable to produce scientific evidence focus on disproving evolution. Though this is effective in showing science has yet to discover the origin of life it also leaves no evidence of their claims.

How dose the beta testing work exactly. Will the game be released, or will there be a call for a set number of people to try it out? Than the rest of the people get it in a couple weeks?

Over the weekend would not be good, no one could register until the next business day.

I've done things good and bad that have come back to me as similar but reversed occerrences. I've also seen things go back to others. They often don't see it and I don't point it out.

I would like to see what the creature behind the big door is. Not that it is actually a character, but still.

Only few religious people believe the story of the Creation.
Although I am not religious, I do not think that it is entirely impossible that someone, who was not omnipotent, but very cunning, helped coincidence to create us somehow.
I believe in God energy, and in higher beings. I tend more tward enlightenment and reincarnation than the image of God sitting on a cloud stroking his white beard. I agree that higher powers guided our evolution and development.

I was commenting on specifics of Creationism. I can except without science that God essence created the series of events that cause the earth to be inhabitable or the appearance of the ameba. That is very far from saying that a fully formed human was just put here one day. Read the bible, it says just that. Countless people believe this whole-heartedly.

Alec-

Eating cleaner meat is for the sake of the animal as much as my own health. Commercial cows and chickens are raised in abusive conditions. Cows are fed only grain, and never grass. The grain is often the leftover that couldn't be sold to humans, so it is often in the early stages of rotting.

They are left in tiny pens so their meat won't become tuff. Being left in a tiny dirty pen and being packed in with hundreds of other cows leads to disease. Antibiotics are given to compensate for food comptly empty of nutrients, no excersise, little sun and fresh air, and dirty water.

Steroids are given so the animals can grow much faster. I don't want to eat these things, or take on the energy of a tortured animal. The same goes for raw dairy. It's more of a treatment of animals than health, but health is an issue also.

I work to help people. I can't help anyone if I am sick.

That is a good prospective on that. Thuryl, you seem pretty open to most things.

Understandably a large enough animal would not be harmed. The animal that was mentioned was a hamster that is not an animal that could very easily survive intercourse of any sort with a human.

I don't like the treatment of commercial animals and though I do eat meat it is always organic free range. I won't comment in-depth on treatment of domesticated animals as some humans feel abuse is expectable both with their pets and children.

I played the first one that came out, and have 3 Reign of Chaos. My brother bought them, and I was kind of into it. This one has a much better storyline.

Ok perhaps my statement was unjust. I am very open to a logical explanation to creationism. Please show me some scientific references so I can do further research on this discussion. Maybe if I see the logic that supports creationism I will have an easier time understanding that a woman just popped out of a guy's rib to populate the species.

Oh good, you don't have a hamster :P

I truly do not understand the desire of bestiality, or perhaps it's to creepy to fully contemplate.

I am Taoist, I have faith in universal balance, and am able to trust what can't be seen. However I seek logic for earthly matters.

There is no logic in creationism. There is a great deal of science to support evolution.

I know what's going through your head, so be advised that even if you do manage to set two of them up with each other, they're not going to show you any pictures afterwards.

I doubt he would need pictures. He's probably already there.

I always get a laugh when people vote one star for software companies or throwaway accounts. Word to the wise check the very old posts using the search option at the top of the screen before asking certain questions. The temptation of asking about karma has always led to a one star rating.
