Hardcore Gamer: Call of Abraham, a third-person adventure game in which you travel across the middle-east as part of Abraham’s caravan, launched a Kickstarter campaign last month.
Yet again somebody uses the bible to scam people. It's a story as old as Christianity itself.
The faith people put into the bible allows for some easy manipulation, that's for sure. It's rare for people to put such little effort into their trickery, though. Did you take a look at the game in question? It looks about as old as the bible itself. The Kickstarter's quality alone was enough to scare away people with half a brain.
lol....u beat me to it!
I like what you did there, bubble up.
Amen brother amen.
Religion? Check. Other peoples' money? Check. Are people really surprised that a crowd-funded project of a religious nature is a scam?
I fear we'll never see a great Christian video game.
Contribute to the offering plate and you'll get a better seat for eternity. A bunch of fantasy stories fit in perfectly with a fantasy video game.
This is a scam? Well this just snuggles right up to the grandest scam of them all, the bible.
So much hate for the Bible and Christianity. Yet everyone goes on and on about tolerance and acceptance. but when it comes to the bible and Christianity.. OH NO THAT'S STUPID!!! MINDLESS SHEEP PEOPLE!!! KEEP CHRIST OUT OF HIS OWN BIRTHDAY!!! AND EASTER TOO!!! Really one sided isn't it? I haven't read all the Bible but I read some of and it and I gotta say its full of wisdom and dares to predict the future. But if you ask me The real mindless ones are the ones who believe theories about a bang that we came from apes when they couldn't possibly ever prove it ever... Its actually more REALISTIC to believe we came from intelligent design. but whatever... disagree with me.. I'm just saying there's a lot of hate for Christianity and the Bible. Childish...
Christmas and Easter are co-opted pagan holidays that have only been "about" Jesus for a relatively short time. Jesus was either born in September or April, depending on what sources you look at, but he almost certainly wasn't born in the middle of winter. >I haven't read all of the Bible So, let me get this straight. You wholeheartedly believe in a book that YOU HAVEN'T READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH, but we're the mindless ones for believing time-tested theories supported by substantial evidence. It's arrogant and ill-informed statements like yours that draw scorn toward your religion.
Pot meet Kettle We don't live in the Roman Empire any longer. Christianity is doing pretty well for itself, perhaps a little better than it has any right to given its sordid past. Christianity was able to halt scientific progress for quite a while, but its a bit harder to imprison and/or execute scientists these days so... Intelligent Design.
Sure, one can find some nice tidbits of "wisdom" in the bible amongst the outdated bloody ridiculousness of it all, just as one can find the same in mein kampf, but both also have a fair bit of evil in their own little way. Cant have a rational / logical discussion with a fantasy, it just isn't possible. That's why zealot christians and creationists exist, to spout off pernicious nonsense to help them feel better about themselves and to make sense of their lives and pad their weak constitutions. And as you state "when they couldn't possibly ever prove it ever..."?? applies to religion not science. In fact "they" have proven good deal of it, well, not the "big bang" but more so our ancestors etc with the amazingly magical mysteries of SCIENCE. But I suppose the Harry Potter route to the great human question makes more sense. I mean it's totally logical when one really thinks about it all, and only an utter fool would question such an obvious truth to our humble beginnings on this planet. I can see it all now..."HUMANOUS EXPECTORALOUS!!!" A mighty POOF! Some glitter flutters about, the pink smoke dissipates and Voila! Humans are born! Then again, perhaps you are referring to ET's being responsible and I would well believe ET's but never a, bahaha, wait for it, a "GOD" from one of the greatest fairy-tales ever concocted. Cmon man! You're better than this!
^Finally an Intelligent person in the internet^ I agree with you dude
