A true <insert religious belief> is poor, for all claim to aid those in need and seeing as there are more people in need then not it really contradicts that religious people still have anything left to give.

Seriously though - religion is just one huge scam to begin with so where is the harm in extending this idea into the virtual world?

Isn't religion all about deceiving and scamming people? I fail to see the issue.

Originally by: Verrenici
haha! The entire Christian faith is based on lies and deception.

Religion is a scam, so why not use it to scam people?

Hundreds of millions of people have been scammed by religion since human history began, if the most you're going to lose is a few isk... I think you're getting off lightly!

These!!

It probably shouldn't be allowed. I could then spam: I'm a jew/chinese/afro therefore I'm giving away ISK. Send me... some lie.

If you can pull religious cards then why not call racial ones as well?

No, it shouldn't be allowed IMHO.

I've always wondered about people that believe in a God.

Do you still believe in Santa Clause?

The Easter Bunny?

Tooth Fairy?

Leprechauns?

Honest Politicians?

All these things have three things in common.

1)They are Superstitious myths from our ignorant ancestors that thought lightning was a God.
2)They don't exist.
3)Only fools believe in them.

Comments like these prove that there are spiteful and hateful stupid-spouting idiots on both sides of the fence. It's not the "ignorant vs the edumacated", as they'd like us to believe. There are radical fanatics on BOTH sides of the fence. In fact, in these forums I can safely say the so-called atheists tend to be more radical and hateful. Take this thread as an example.

I agree with OP that this is wrong. Taking action against it would be a different matter altogether, not to mention there are no legal implications. In Roman-Dutch law, ignorant people are always at a loss...

Do you believe in the "Big Bang" theory?

This is science/scientists theory that there is a devine power/God.

I fail to see how this should be banned. I think someone is getting all butthurt for one of two reasons...1)They fell for the scam, in which case you are an idiot. 2)You are a christian who takes offense at God being used as a tool for wealth in a game, in which case you are an idiot. Of course, there is the third option, that you are offended by the faith of others, in which case, you are an idiot. So I guess the solution is simple.

1) Chalk it up as a learning experience and move on.
2) Get a sense of humor or accept that some people are going to use God as a tool, in games and in real life.
3) Accept that not everyone believes the same as you do and get over it.

Failure to utilize these solutions will guarantee future episodes of idiocy and continued butthurt for years to come.

On a more intellectually honest note, I have to say that theism and athiesm are one and the same. Both require devotion to an ideal or symbol, both require preaching of said ideal or symbols to win over converts, and both are equally intolerant of any who do not or will not agree with their point of view.

Hoping that the Mod Lock will rain fire and brimstone...or just lock, whichever is easier.

Err, no. Perhaps you are being honest, but certainly not intellectual. I liked the rest of your post though.

Explain how I am not being intellectually honest...in my experience, both are equally intolerant, both spend hours, if not more, in indoctrination with the aim to recruit believers in their ideology (they are both ideologies), and both whine and moan when the other side does something they don't like. If either side stepped off their soapboxes for any length of time, they might, and I stress might, be able to discern the fact that they are practically two branches of the same tree.

Erm, I don't know about that. Obviously the most outspoken people are the most radical, but I'm yet to have atheists come to my door and give my books and pamphlets on their ideology to "spread their word". I can't think of any atheist "hot spots" in the world right now where atheist-driven violence runs rampant. I highly doubt there's any atheist organization with anywhere near the wealth and political reach of, say, the evangelicals in the States. The religion section at any bookstore I've ever been to is usually pretty huge; personally never seen an "atheist" section. I laugh every time some convicted felon in prison claims to "have found Jesus" during their parole hearing. I'm yet to hear about a case where a guy up for parole says he "lost God" lol.

I'm an atheist, but I'm not anti-religion per se, as I don't see it as an ideology so much as a conclusion to deductive reasoning. I have many religious friends and we don't try to convert each other though we do express our views openly. As far as my experiences go, religion (the "big 3" in particular) seem to market their ideologies and are far more intolerant than most atheists.

This too. You cannot acuse religion in this way, it is potentially offensive for those who are religious.

Human beings are free. Free to believe what they want, and this freedom includes freedom to err, too. Yesterdays bigot priests are todays bigot priests, only that yeterday religion was science, today scince is religion.

Anyway, I am not expecting anyone to agree, too familiar with the venting effects of this media called internet.
