By the way, the reason the Churches aren't to happy towards homosexualti is probably because there is a Commandment that says "Thou shall not commit adultery."
Churches' opinions do not bear any legal weight.

Replace "gay marriage" with "polygamy" in the above post and the reasoning still holds. However, for some reason I don't see opponents of polygamy being called "hate-filled fanatics".
Gay marriage is not inherently exploitative.

EDIT: As for religious definition of marriage, whether that definition includes homosexuality depends largely on how closely the movement follows the Bible.
Judaism is not the only religion.

I'm sorry, I confused you for one of the countless supporters of legalized marriages. All the same, I find your opinion correct on that particular point for all the wrong reasons.

I never did. But that was a Judao-Christian concept that was taken and as such, it falls into the hands of Judao-Christins to remove it from the hands of the government, seeing as nobody else has any religious-based reason to do so. As such, your analogy is horrendously exagerrated.

Marriage is not a concept exclusive to the Abrahamic religions.

Um, my position is base on religious opposition. Asking me to give a valid social reason other than that is pointless, because that is not why I'm arguing this.

The form of marriage traditionally viewed as proper by the 'religious' has not included unions between races or faiths either.

I can see how you can say that. However that is because I would get massively out posted. (I don't think you understand how much of a help it is in a debate to immediately answer while he has to wait 10 hours too. And of course by that time they have posted about ten-twenty times.) I can't answer that many posts. (Besides half of them being uh, well, let's just say, pointless?)

Your assessment has no merit.

You wouldn't be so quick to tear down separation of church and state if your religion wasn't sitting on top of the pile right now, and there's no guarantee it will remain there. So many people don't have a problem with a formal prayer in school now, but what if they decided to start making it to Allah? Believe it or not, separation of church and state protects your interests too.
You wouldn't say that if you knew anything about what religion I espouse or where I live. Again, "assuming facts not yet in evidence."

The station of Jews in Israel is not as disadvantaged as you imply.

A fist's base damage versus most weapons is so low that you will take significantly longer to kill high level monsters. I tried it out in A4 versus Crain and needed to buff up the fighter and continually heal him. I don't remember where in A4 I posted the exact damages.
This is not the Avernum 4 forum.

There is no way to prove the stigma against the argument from ignorance is not valid.

That new Wii thing just sounds crazy. It sounds like some kind of gateway to Nintendo crossing over to, like, virtual reality or something, from what I've heard about it (translation: my little brother quoting "Nintendo Power" magazine at me :D ).

Nintendo Power is not an objective source of information on Nintendo products.

Well, the giant squid was thought a myth for many years and it exists (rarely), so perhaps there are other deep sea creatures dating back to the time of dinos.

Originally written by Lancer:

I was just curious to know on these boards how attached you are to the fantasy genre. Let's imagine, hypothetically, that Jeff were to make a sci-fi RPG but with the same great gameplay/ story elements that the Avernum and Geneforge games are known for...

Would you be interested in such a game? Or are you unequivocally attached to fantasy games only?

For me, personally, Jeff's games have been about the wonderful gameplay, character creation and storyline irrespective of genre. I would personally love to see a new post-apocalyptic or even cyberpunk RPG.
What do you guys think?

No.
