Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Christ Baiting

Christianity is the prominent religion of the world cause that murderous bastard Constantine made it so.

Jesus was Jewish too. I don't get why there's a religion founded on a man who's religion is different.

Seems silly. We should all convert to Buddhism, they seem pretty chill and relaxed all the time.

I like to lol at crazy religious people as much as anyone but karak does not fit that stereotype.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Christ Baiting

One of the most entertaining parts of message boards is working out what people are like irl. With karak i'm currently going with generally decent guy with a few lol wtf opinions/ aspects to his personality and a slight but annoying short guy complex. Probably gets over argumentative about little things.

I didn't say you were ignorant or dumb, I said you were trolling everyone. It's got nothing to do with my view on religion and everything to do with my assumption that if someone comes out with a stance they have to realize most will find silly, on April 1st, it's probably a joke.

Guess it wasn't, that's cool too.

As someone that's been exposed to both sides at close range for prolonged periods of time, aggressive atheism is much much worse than aggressive religion.

Historically and politically, in terms of damage done, it's not a contest and religion is far worse but if you're going to lock me in a room with one or the other, give me the theist ainec

Heading down for this weekend, would not hate some solid recommendations for places to go (esp for food, bars I'm sure won't be tough to find).

iirc its mostly nicer restaurants and a fair amount of stuff outside or near the perimeter which wont be good for people relying on cabs and drinking aggressively.

I wouldnt stay near the stadium. Its not a nice area. I would stay in Buckhead or Midtown depending on if you prefer to be really close to bars, steakhouses, and a few other restaurants (Buckhead) or walking distance from a ton of restaurants, brunch places, and clubs (Midtown). You can take MARTA to the games.

My sister who lives there always said "Moving Afro-Americans Rapidly Through Atlanta". Is that what you're getting at?

On an utterly different note, anyone watch The Following? Worth powering through in a month when it's all said and done?

So, figured I should check out this Game of Thrones thing everyone is talking about, took me eight episodes before I realized all the Dothraki parts should have subtitles and I didn't have them. Yep.

I imagine he calls in NARTA. And if he ever types it, he can use the excuse that the two keys are right next to each other.
