Civilization V Divides Religion And Science

I already made a post below about the new game, Civilization V, but I think this deserves a post of its own.

After starting to play this game 2 things really intrigued me.
1. They've removed the individual religions that were a crucial part of Civ IV.
2. They've replaced Civics with Social Policies. There are 10 of them, and the 2 that I really like are Piety and Rationalism.

Piety represents your civlization's devotion to religion and Rationalism represents your civlization's devotion to science. These 2 Social Policies cannot be used at the same time. So the creators of Civilization V are basically saying that your civilization is either religious or rational. Haha, Fantastic!

Civilization V

I've been waiting for this game for so long!
Say hello to my little friend. His name is Giant Death Robot
A new hex-based gameplay grid opens up exciting new combat and build strategies.
City States become a new resource in your diplomatic battleground. An improved diplomacy system allows you to negotiate with fully interactive leaders.
Custom music scores and orchestral recordings give Civ V the level of polish and quality you expect from the series.
BELIEVABLE WORLD: Ultra realistic graphics showcase lush landscapes for you to explore, battle over and claim as your own. Art deco influences abound in the menus and icons in the most well-designed Civ ever developed.

Irrational Table Of Nonsense

Hurry for Pseudoscience!

Big Fish

This is one massive fish...

It was so large that it took 10 grown men to hold it up for the photo shoot.

“It was so thick around the middle, you couldn’t get your arms around it,” said Calderone.

Officially, it measured 11 feet, three inches, or 3.4 metres — the length of a compact car. And it likely weighed more than 700 pounds, or 320 kilograms, based on its girth.

This monster sturgeon was reeled in on the shore of Mission, British Columbia, Canada. As a native to the Fraser Valley, I can verify this thing IS real, and almost as shocking as all those damn feet that kept showing up on our shores from 2007-2009

Xbox Live

I can deal with the children screaming and breathing into the mic.

I can deal with the teamkillers fucking everything up just for the fun of it.

I can deal with the pissy hardcore gamers who think they're 1337 because they don't use autoaim.

I can deal with the lag that shifts me 5 feet to the left when I'm trying to shoot an enemy.

I can deal with the campers who want to sit in one spot and collect easy kills.

I can deal with the griefers who chase after you for no particular reason when you aren't looking fo a fight.

I can deal with the assholes who vent their frustrations out by trash talking everyone else on a mic.

What I can't deal with is the self-righteous preachers who won't shut the fuck up about God or the Bible until everyone they come in contact with is converted.
Xbox Live is for gaming, not proselytizing. Do everyone a favor and keep that shit in your church. If people feel lost in the world and are looking for answers, they will come to you. Don't go out of your way to meet people and shove religion down their throats.

If you have Xbox Live, send HOMETHEATER BOY a message and let him know he's sick offensive scum. Thank you.

Dear Pope

Rapper Dan Bull knows the Pope is visiting his hometown in the UK soon, so he wrote him a welcome letter.

Pretty funny stuff.

Happy 9/11!

Lets commemorate the day some crazy Muslims and almost 3000 Americans sacrificed their lives for some lulz.

Meet Terry Jones

Terry Jones is a simple man.
Terry Jones wears a .40-caliber pistal strapped to his hip.
Terry Jones is a Reverend.
Terry Jones owns 200 Korans
Terry Jones has admitted not having read a single one.
Terry Jones wants to burn them.
Terry Jones doesn't have a permit for such an event.
Terry Jones has received over 100 death threats.
Terry Jones will send a message to radical extremist Muslims.
Terry Jones...
...Can brush his handlebar mustache against my gooch.

PROTIP: Don't call it an "INTERNATIONAL" event if YOU are the only one doing it.
btw, I actually support this idea. I think the more religious texts we can burn, the better. It would be awesome if Atheists would show up to the event in large numbers and start tossing all sorts of religious holy books into the bonfire. But as a Christian, Terry Jones is a hypocritical douche.

Idiot of the Week

Technically, this may not count as an idiot of the week because it has apparently been happening for the past year and not simply this week. But I found out about it this week, so there you go.

The owner of a South Carolina gas station has set his pumps so that the following message appears whenever people use them:
One nation under god and if you don't like it. Leave!
What a great American! Believe like I do, or get the hell out. The video below will explain how much all the customers like this message, agree with this message, and see absolutely nothing wrong with this message.

Christian bigotry: Good for business in South Carolina.
