Re: Introduction Thread--What religion are you up to?

I already mentioned this a bit in the Get to know each other thread, But I'll go ahead and post here.

I'm an Episcopalian (which is basically the American branch of the Church of England, some people also call us "Diet Catholic" lol). I don't pretend to have read the entire Bible, and I don't get bent out of shape over minor details. Regardless of what other people in the Bible might have said, Jesus said to love everyone, and treat everyone equal, so I try to focus on that (But I certainly won't pretend I always succeed at that, either).

I also respect the fact that people of other faiths likely feel as strongly about their beliefs as I feel about mine, so you won't find me "beating someone over the head with a Bible" or trying to force my beliefs on them. I don't go around telling people they are "going to Hell" if they don't believe the same as me.

Since you mentioned how this relates to hacks, if you look at Pokémon Christmas, you will see people of different faiths represented in NPCs. Many make no mention of religion at all, one guy says he is Jewish (or at least celebrates Hannukah), there is a Priest (who could be Catholic, Episcopalian, or Anglican) in Vermillion city, and there is (in the upcoming update) a Shinto shrine in Ecruteak city. There is also one guy who claims he "Doesn't believe in evolution, so he makes all of his Pokemon hold everstones". And yes, that is me making a jab at Southern Baptists some people's denial of evolution and calling them stubborn. Playfully. I believe God created the world, but science indicates that Evolution is the way he did it, and that's cool with me.

Currently, you cannot. Since its already past Christmas (and therefore just getting done when it gets done) I might go in and add the building, if I can think of something useful for it to do.

Re: Introduction Thread--What religion are you up to?

@Zapdos - Let's see. If I remember:

Atheist is if you believe there is no God.
Agnostic means that you believe it is unknown or unknowable when it comes to that.
If you just don't really care one way or the other, I'm not sure if there is a name for that or not. Maybe just secular.

@Arceus - I'll answer that in another thread so this one can stay on topic.

Re: Introduction Thread--What religion are you up to?

I'm a Christian, non-denominational. I don't really see the point of the whole Catholic/Protestant divide, and especially the multiple branches of Protestantism (Baptist, Calvinist, Methodist, etc.). They all believe in Christ, so why all the nit-picky divisions? I also respect Siddhartha Guatama's (Buddha's) philosophical points.

Hahaha, that's really funny, never noticed that before. I think a lot of peoples' ideas about evolution are misconstrued by Pokemon, to be honest. Simply because we can't observe evolution by natural/artificial selection in the course of just a few generations, people seem to get the idea that it must happen over a very short span of time, or not at all (like in Pokemon!).

I held that belief when I was younger, and frankly, there's no way to prove or disprove it. Whatever "God" might be a synonym for; the physical laws of nature/the universe for example, as Einstein believed, there is no denying that the Big Bang, which is the current model, was sort of a "poof" of matter into existence. I don't really take much time to ponder these things anymore though, it seems to me that our extremely limited sensory perception and large but somewhat disorganized and easily confused brains aren't well suited to understand things of such immensity.



And I would say for those who are "nothing" are areligious. That's what I would call it. Without religion.

Re: Introduction Thread--What religion are you up to?

@Vitharix - Yeah, areligious makes sense.

Also, it would have made so much more sense if they had just called it "metamorphosis" instead of "evolution" since its more closely based on the metamorphic cycle of insects anyway - Especially since the game itself was based on the hobby of insect collecting.

Re: Introduction Thread--What religion are you up to?

Ehh.... I don't really follow religion. I'm waiting for science to prove 100% which one is the true religion to follow. Or for some proof to just come along and reveal itself to me.


You know the glitches that exist in the Pokémon games?
Only the ones named "MISSINGNO." are Missingno.
The others are not. They are their own glitches with their own names.
Sorry, it's a... thing that bugs me a little.

Re: Introduction Thread--What religion are you up to?

i may say im a christian but i may not say so since telling your belief of GOD by means only word of your mouth but not in heart is considered blashpemy i think?though i really believe in GOD and the way HE sent JESUS to us,and i think theres nothing wrong with this thread since we're sharing our thoughts and beliefs,right?
