on the subject of Israel, I don't think it's our place to protect them. If they want their holy land, they can defend it like the Ottomans did for hundreds of years. You don't see Christians running in, even though it's our holy land as well. It seems to me that a lot of people aren't very good at sharing in Israel.

Alot of my opinion about Israel is based on my religion. After all, Jesus was a Jew and even as a Christian I believe the Jews were the chosen people of God. However religion aside, its in the United States best interest that the Israelies and Muslims get along. If the entire Middle East is in a gigantic war, what happens to oil prices? And as the leading super power of our time, it should be our duty to be peace keepers of world. Spiderman said it best "With great power comes great responsibility". We can't just burrow into our country and let the world be damned.

Well as long as Jesus is the kicker, I'll take two and thank him for saving me.

  Although at times it seems we have our thumbs up our asses, we have launched large attacks since after the war was over. Falujah and the Operation Matador that just ended seem to have made some progress. I notice that there isn't nearly as much bad news coming from Iraq of late, but unfortunatly news stations can't report "There was no bombs today", so no good news gets reported. I honestly believe the only reason this war seemed so bad is because the amount of media attention it got.

  As far as us being buddy buddy with Israel, if we wern't they would be at war right now. The Jews are surrounded by enemies right now and we have to act as the balancing force to make sure that they realize we won't let them invade Israel (although last time they tried they Israel whooped up on em).

  My problem with the scientific explanation is that it doesn't come to a begining. The Big Bang theory states that everything moved away from a densely packed point and is gradually moving away. Where did the mass come from? Even my science teacher couldn't explain that. To say that it was "already there" is just illogical. We've proven that spontaneuos generation doesn't occur, so it didn't just come from nothingness.

Man, this is the first political thread I've ever seen where people aren't screaming at each other half way down the first page. Too bad. I was really looking forward to screaming.

Abortion: ONLY if the mother or child will die from giving birth.

Gay Marriage: Personally gays just sicken me, it just seems unnatural. Give'm unions if you must.

Gun Control: Without it, criminals will have guns. With it, criminals will have guns. Without it, I will have a gun.

Stem Cell Research: We don't need human embryos for it. I've heard that pig fat works just as well.

Middle East: EVERYONE thought they had WMDs, including anti-war countries. Not only this but Iraq has served as a vacuum for terrorism. Many extremists who could have pulled off another 9/11 are dead or captured because of our presence of there. I would much rather that they blow themselves up in Iraq than over here.

Education: I'm in the 8th grade and....man are some of these kids dumb. I mean I'm tutoring a 16 year old who failed this grade twice. Something has got to be done. Lego's and Solid's ideas sound good to me.

Environment/Fuel: Well since oil isn't going to be around for much longer, then we will probably soon find another (cleaner) source of energy. Nuclear energy is probably the future although how thats going to power cars isn't apparent to me.

Death Penalty: If they deserve it, go for it.

Taxes: Booooooooooooooooooooooooooo *ahem* ooooooooooooooooooooooooo. Tax system is much too complicated. Lets just put a consumption and flat tax up there and do away with the current web.a

 Well, to believe in any religion *requires* that you think your right and anybody who doesn't believe as you do is wrong. Thats the definition and theres just no avoiding it. The problem is that people keep steorotyping the sterotypes (confuzzled yet?). I'm a conservative Prodestant and I'm not out there writing Sand N*gger on doors or passing out hate pamphlets. Certainly we can all agree we have ignorant people in every religion. Muslim extremism comes in the form of Osama and his ilk. Christian extremism is the kind of cases that we've heard so far, threats of hell and so forth. The problem with these people is that they are really just pushing people away from Christianity. Rather than telling people what will happen if they don't join, we as Christians have a responsibility to show them the joys of Christianity, that we have the love of our God. Unfortunatly some are hell bent (pardon the pun) on pushing forward the steriotype of the Baptist minister. But let it be known that not all of us are that way.

edit: Ironic isn't it that a Creationist like myself is so looking forward to Spore, huh?  :)

Think mine will be kinda organic looking, like Will's village was but with a darker twist (think zerg base).

We don't know much about tech buildings, whether each vehc has its own building or all land on one, all water on another, ect Theres also the question of whether we have town centers/houses and other structures.

On a related note, looking at some of the screenshots we can see that the roads all have arrows pointing in a certain direction. Any clue or guesses as to what they mean?

All and all, MMORPGs blow. Until they have combat like an FPS or action game with no levels and no dependency on items, then count me out.


You might wana check out Planetside then. Pretty much what your looking for. www.planetside.com
