How is that a secret???
speeddasher01 asked: Hey Linkara, I have another question about religion. According to your Marville review, you seem to be a Christian who believes in evolution. I was just wondering how you explain Jesus Christ The Son of God mentioning Noah, and Cain and Abel in The Bible if you believe that? Some say Jesus was speaking in a way the people of old times could understand, but I wanted to know what you thought about it?
Stuff like Noah and the flood was folklore even by the time Jesus was around, so of course he’d mention him. Same goes for Cain and Abel. The existence of evolution does not disprove God, nor would proof of God’s existence disprove evolution. We are all machines and creations to a degree - we have components and physical laws that govern us and limitations to our design. One assumes that when one is all-powerful, they would just snap their fingers and create something instantly. I would like to think that God is a better engineer than that and actually went through all the steps necessary to eventually get to us - various forms of animals from single-celled organisms to the dinosaurs and eventually to us. The process was not overnight and it’s doubtful that it was seven days, either (though as the Scopes Monkey trial once put it - how does one define a day when there isn’t a sun yet?).
The point is that God, for me, created the universe and all living beings. Evolution is just the way he did it.
Though as engineers go he was rather rubbish at it. We’re made remarkably inefficiently, with just enough functionality to live long enough to reproduce, as you’d expect from natural selection without an overseer.
Remember when Starscream did this thing with Hot Shot?
Because I sure do
ladymargo asked: Hey Abbie. Ichabod has friends who owned slaves... Is he becoming a bit more sensitive to the fact that you may not want to hear about how great these people are? Also what is the worst un-PC faux pas he has made?
Well, Crane’s never going to stop going on about how great Washington was, for instance, but I think he’s gotten the message that he really can’t defend him from the charge of owning slaves. He’s come to realize that nobody, even his idols, are perfect. And having been pro-abolition before he came to our time probably helped with that mind-set adjustment.
He’s been surprisingly unoffending about the PC stuff, considering he’s from a very un-PC era. I told him pretty early on to try not to discuss race, religion or politics, because I didn’t trust him to keep on the PC side. Clearly I failed at getting him not to talk about politics… I think the worst un-PC trouble he’s ever been in was the time he called a lady a “negress”. We had a Little Talk afterward, and I gave him a list of Words Never to be Used.
Oh my God, I’ve started picking up his capitalization habits. HALP.
As much as I love Nariko from Heavenly Sword and think she is an awesome female character, I’m not too fond of her outfit.
I like the design (apart from the panties), but I don’t think it’s suitable for someone who spends most of her time rampaging through enemy armies fighting off endless amounts of soldiers.
So I redesigned it:
Now she doesn’t have to worry as much about getting stabbed in the gut.
Another thing that bugged me was that she comes from a village that appears to be located in a mountainous area completely covered in snow, yet she still manages to run around like that:
When it makes more sense to be running around like this:
I love Heavenly Sword but that Macklemore coat is making sure I’ll never see it without laughing again. Well done!
