10 Games to Play Before the World Ends on Saturday

From the PlanetXbox360.com feature list:

"Regardless of whether or not you believe in a magical sky wizard who has the power to fulfill or crush your hapless human dreams in a split second solely because you loved said mythological deity with all your heart or glanced too long at your best friend’s significant other a moment too long, there is no arguing that a significant portion of humanity unfortunately believes that this Saturday may be the end of this little planet’s journey spinning hazardously through the galactic cosmos. Well, those aside, there are tons of must-play games to experience before you die."

Bible "no one knows the day or the hour"

Quran "I have no knowledge of whether it is near or far."

Torah "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

if you have so much faith in the world ending tomorrow, sign over all your money in the bank to me today.

SuperSaiyan42613d ago

Jewdism came before Christianity so why does the Torah state 'son'. In actuallality God himself has never said to have a son.

Quran which was sent down to earth through Angel Gabriel where the words are written by God himself states a passage 'I have not taken unto me a son'.

God has no son, a bunch of Christians way back decided to make that bit up only because Mary conceived Jesus without intercourse.

Islam Is Not A Religion, It Is Foreign Law

darthv722613d ago

do religious people deny the fact of dinosaurs and cave men and evolution?

Some would go so far as to say that god was created by man. Not the other way around. Created as a focus to praise when things are good and blame when things were bad.

I believe more in the existence of life out there. It is just logically impossible for us to be the only ones. Faith has a funny way of working. Those who have faith in religion should be no different than those with faith in science.

Thousands of years of human evolution and the technology we have created brought into question by words written by people who had no other logical way of explaining what they experienced.

pain777pas2613d ago

Lil Titan you are on the right track my friend. Also Christianity is an new interpretation or testament of Judaism. They are one and the same really. The Only difference is whether or not you believe Jesus to be the son of God or not.

HolyOrangeCows2613d ago (Edited 2613d ago )

+1 Well said for Titan. He beat me to it.
It's ridiculous that this "preacher" thinks he calculated the day....that directly conflicts with Revelation.

"It is just logically impossible for us to be the only ones"
Not really....the probability of another planet being in perfect range of a star, having the necessary components for any type of life, having the right minerals, surviving long enough for the formation of carbon-based lifeforms, having a sustainable atmosphere, never being hit by a catastrophic event such as a massive meteor.....we're lucky. More and more scientists are suggesting a finite universe, too.

"do religious people deny the fact of dinosaurs and cave men and evolution?"
-
"Cave men" is a very convoluted term these days. If you're talking about people who live in a cave, then sure, anybody would believe in cavemen. If you're talking about sub-human primates, then there are some issues. First of all, there's a sever lack of evidence that the most preserved specimens of undeniably human-linkable creatures were incapable of speech. It's always implied that close ancestors couldn't engage in advanced speech and spent their day smelling their fingers after sticking it into their rear-end. Our closest ancestors may well have been just as human as you and me, but with different structure.

And most of the actual specimens that we've discovered have been warped skulls. Often not even that. They're often mostly faked/guessed out of clay to complete the skeleton/skull out of a tooth.

And why should anyone deny dinosaurs? They're creatures. Their existence doesn't negate anything.

This sort of debate sees a lot of BAAAAA!ing, but very few are capable of intelligent discussion.

EDIT:
@No Way
You're making a lot of silly assumptions about my statements.

"How can you say it's not probable?"
I never said that. I was just saying that "logically impossible" is hardly true.

"is your trying to say all planets needa be like Earth"
Again, I never said that. But I WAS including earth-like life. However, there are certain elements that we can pretty much rule out as possible basis to life, and with a lack of the ones that could be possible in ANY sort of life are largely missing from the known universe, and likely the majority of the planets in the finite universe.

"Not to mention, if I'm not mistaken, I beilieve that scientists, astronomers, whatever, have actually found other 'lifeforms' on other planets"
Dead bacteria on the moon isn't the "life" I was thinking of. We've been to the moon, SEVERAL times. Bacteria can very conceivably be contributed to life from earth, whether the collision theory or human interaction or other ways.

Cenobia2613d ago

@darthv72

I just find it funny that what most people hate most about religion is that people preach it to them.

What do they do in return? They preach right back. IRONY.

Quit your preachin' already. We're supposed to be talking about games.

frostypants2613d ago (Edited 2613d ago )

I love how you say Christianity made stuff up, thus implying that the other two religions based on an invisible sky wizard are perfectly factual.

It's ALL mythology. None are more legit than the others. Even Judaism is largely plagiarized from much older religions (e.g., the "great flood" story pre-dates it).

And there's a reason why it's all based on "faith": none of it can be backed up rationally.

And yeah, based on all three of those mythologies, the day is unpredictable anyway.

No Way2613d ago (Edited 2613d ago )

The bit about the planets. How can you say it's not probable?
What it sounds like to mean, is your trying to say all planets needa be like Earth. And, that's just not true. There are plenty of planets out there, with all kinds of different elements and structure. Different minerals and atmospheres. It sounds like to me, you are thinking that another life form needs to be a replicate of a human being. Which I don't believe to be the case. Aint you played Mass Effect or seen Transformers?! Hah. Just because we can't live on another planet, does not mean another 'species' could not. They may not need water, an atmosphere, perfect temperature, sun or a moon. Hell, they may not even breath in oxygen.. Just cause the billions of planets out there doesn't have the same makeup of Earth, doesn't mean they can't sustain life..

Not to mention, if I'm not mistaken, I beilieve that scientists, astronomers, whatever, have actually found other 'lifeforms' on other planets, already.
Albeit, they may just be little molecules of whatever. Or, tiny insects.
But, regardless, they are life, or at least, a being of life.
Anyway, we certainly aint searched every planet out there.

Who knows what's out there ..

edgeofblade2613d ago (Edited 2613d ago )

Let's get back to the good part.

Finger-Eater2613d ago (Edited 2613d ago )

See this people, stop talking about science and religion, and start talking about games. Someone brings up religion, then all of a sudden some atheist gets mad and starts a war. Happens every single time, just shut up and keep things to yourself.

n4gisatroll2613d ago

Darth:

It's said when the first humans were starting to grasp life and not live like an animal anymore he thought of a way to gain control of more food or resources. And a spiritual being was created to control the ignorant. If you look when the holy roman empire was around they were spreading the terror of
"gods wrath" if they didn't give them money and obey. So I believe fully that god was created by man.

MaxXAttaxX2613d ago

It was only one place and one dude that said it would end on Saturday. I'm not even sure if other religious sites are even part of it or care.

pr0digyZA2613d ago

Yup it is only one guy, this guy is from one of those extreme christian groups that is so far from the actual religion of christianity it could actually be called a cult.

BISHOP-BRASIL2612d ago

Would it made any difference if it was a billion people saying it?

Dependind on what you consider the world ending, it can either never happen (matter just don't disappear) or it happened many times before, even while humans where on earth (mass extinctions).

Anyway you look at it, I hardly believe such event would happen over night... The fact that the world is going just as usual today make me pretty confident to say that the world will keep basically the same for some centuries to come.

The concept of catastrophy had been proven false as a global event many times already. Even a comet hitting the earth took more than a thousand years to extinct dinossaurs.

Unless you think of world ending as a social event of course.

wsoutlaw872612d ago (Edited 2612d ago )

not to mention that that one guy said Jesus would come in 1994 also, except now he "guarantees it". People are quitting their jobs for this sh**
