Why did they have to say G-D so many times? Why couldn't they have just found another way to say it without making fun of God?

    Yeah, it would be nice to have some rules posted as a sticky. You only know that you have violated some term when you get a message in your inbox about it :D

    Sorry, I did not know that, I will stop. Just trying to say it doesnt matter what you believe, everyone has their own belief and its out of respect,maturity and courtesy to not make fun of someone for posting their opinions.

    You mean like this: http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6356

    (It's stickied in the general chat forum)

    As guidelines they are fairly simple. Generally it always comes down to not being a dick.

    Yes, but we are not in the general chat forum. I am guessing similar rules apply here, but they are probably more strict (though not much more, from what I've seen).

  • Im saying it that kinda of thing offends you. Maybe you shouldnt play games that are Rated M. Ex: If you do not like gore then why are you watching a Saw movie. Maybe not exposing yourself to it. Common sense I thought. Go play E for everyone and you would not have this problem.

  • First of all, if atheism is a religion than 'off' is a television channel, so no.

    Second of all, this discussion wasn't about religion, it was about the fact that someone gets offended by using the word 'god'. Whether you believe in those stories or not, using the word 'god' does NOT automatically mean you're disrespecting someone's religion. It's just a word, that's all. It's almost impossible putting opinion in just one word.
    The fact that they 'swear' in The Walking Dead with goddamn and other words like that, doesn't mean that Telltale hates religious people. It's the language used in those situations, it's the way people vent their emotions in highly stressed situations. There's NO opinion or hateful reason behind those words AT ALL, so don't worry about it. This is the part where people raise their eyebrows, not because the OP is religious.

  • @J_Scheff said: Atheism is a religion because it is what atheist choose to put their faith in. Christianity is a religion because we put our faith in the idea of our God and scripture. Atheism is a religion because they choose to put their faith in science and evolution and the non belief in God. Most definitions of religion emphasize the belief in a God or Gods, but not All religions worship a god. So why would atheism be any different?


    Did you hit your head, sir? Atheism has nothing to do with faith at all. It's more of a choice or accepting the fact that the idea of some old bearded fellow in the sky watching over you is just silly.

    Look I said I was done with this argument. But since people keep bringing it back up, I will say this:

    I have been known to engage in religious debates on both sides of the spectrum. I personally am Christian and I offended one of my atheist friends by saying it was not a religion, they told me it was, that Atheism is a religion because it is what he puts his faith in, just as I put faith in an old bearded fellow in the sky. So I was trying to avoid being offensive to atheists as I assumed they believed their belief was religious.

    Personally I put no stock in religion, By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of all denominations call their actions to the will of God. I have seen religion in the eyes of too many murderers. So my faith is much more than a religious one, yet I still play and enjoy this game. So can we please get back to the point of the post that I was trying to get at before this religious or non religious debate started?

    Like I said at the beginning, and like I mentioned in my last post I will say it again. Everyone has their own beliefs, im simply asking for others to respect that.

    "Accepting the fact"? Since when the existence or non-existence of one (or multiple) God(s) is a certain fact? It's a choice, I choice I respect and understand, but that I don't share.

    Returning in topic, saying God damnit is totally normal, even in situations way less dire.

    How can you make fun of something that doesn't exist?

    BBUUURRRNN!!!!
