(As continuation of posts >>39806, >>39811, >>39814, >>39816, >>39823, >>39826, >>39832 and >>39833 from the 'short thoughts' thread.)

>Waging war against another country is a violation of national sovereignty
No, INVASION (and other 'acts of war') against a country you are not at war with is a violation of national sovereignty. Declaring war on a country is never a crime, and from that moment on acts of war are fair game. International relations may be damaged, and you may face retaliation from alliances and/or organizations as well as sanctions from alliances/organizations you are affiliated with if you have no proper casus belli, but it is not a crime. You will not be prosecuted as war criminal for declaring war even without casus belli, at least not without some string-pulling behind the scenes (being declared a terrorist, extrajudicial execution, etc).

Some modern leaders could be tried for war crimes for torturing and unnecessarily killing PoWs, and perhaps for fabricated casus belli (not sure if that's considered a war crime), but not for waging war itself.

Where would you rather politics be discussed? Telephone conferences? Where should they be organized? Would you rather that political discussion be entirely analog? What kind of political world are you hoping would result from only being able to discuss it with people you could meet physically?

Ask yourself this, chosen amongst who? The idea is that God is at work starting before conception and conception is already within the process of your development in his image. I'm not going to get into a meticulously cited debate with someone that isn't doing the same.

Which is why it's really stupid to rail against the beliefs of a religion or denomination instead of just disavowing it. They don't reach these beliefs randomly and I'm not sure why a bunch of feminists or internet armchair critics think they're more qualified bible scholars than the Catholic clergy.

I'm sorry, but has Mary even engaged in sexual intercourse? Oh, that’s right. She hasn't even made contact with a man outside of dive therapy. In fact, it’s only therapy involving fields for soothing. Does not having a cliche tsundere personality make you a slut? Is that what you’re saying? Because if you’re saying that I can assure you that you’re wrong. Why would you make this topic when the game is already finished and we know for certain she is pure? Mary is a holy maiden now and she was been the purest maiden in Bethlehem? Mary has to go up against one of the sluttiest reyvateils in Judea who just happened to have a lead because she was praying on God's innocence. But you know what? Satan is still a whore. Mary is the best heroine in all three games, she has the best songs. Mary has already won God over, she would have done it sooner if it wasn't for her tragedy with her sister throwing her for a mental loop. Maybe you should shut the fuck up before you make retarded topics like this. You know why? Because you're going to be embarrassed when Mary is proven a better waifu than any other in the Bible. Satan tries to latch on to anyone who would have shown her a different and free life. Are you retarded? Are you autistic? You are a fucking idiot and you should never make a topic on this board again and I’m fucking serious. I almost have a feeling you’re the only guy making all these anti-Mary topics because you’re a faggot hater who doesn’t like a heroine because they’re canonically pure. Fuck you, be good at something in YOUR life and then maybe try to troll these fucking idiots on the board, like I give a fuck. It’s so easy to spot out your threads now, you’re a retard. Always doing stupid shit like this. Why don’t you try to be a good poster? Just for once? For once in your fucking life try not to make a topic like this. That’s just you, you’re always right at getting it wrong. Fuck you. You are nothing.

Ar Tonelico is a Christian game?
>> No.39594  
You don't remember the bit in Ar Bible where Man in his scientific arrogance tried playing God and the surface of the Earth was covered by a sea of death, limiting life to the arktowers of Babelnoah?

I think these analogies fit better to Evangelion than to the actual Bible. That was clearly First Impact.

>One of the reasons I have concern for the future of our world is a little something known as the echo chamber effect. Briefly, this is the tendency of people to gravitate towards sources of information that will reinforce their own beliefs regarding events or topics of interest to them.

>Troll. It's an interesting concept. The textbook definition of a troll is someone who shows up uninvited at your site to argue for the sake of arguing, a disruptor, an agitator. What a troll is in practice is someone who shows up at an echo chamber with a different viewpoint than that of the denizens of the site. You can tell a lot about a site and its proprietor by the tolerance shown to alternative viewpoints; at Caput Penitus Culus, FLDS Texas, and other like sites, you're likely to have your comments deleted and your access to enter comments blocked.

>The point is this: our nation used to have a tradition of tolerance for opposing viewpoints. Now, with the echo chamber effect, we're not inclined to hear, let alone respect, differing viewpoints.

Why would you ever play something that long without backing up your save?
>> No.39150  
Because the game won't accept the save even if you place it back to prevent cheating (for example, you would be able to revert to an earlier point after making a dumb mistake). I could have played the newest version of the game that does allow permasaving, but the game was originally intended with permadeath so that's the way I play it.
>> No.39159  
It just seems silly to not be able to backup your save since something like a crash is not your fault.
>> No.39184  
You could back up the whole game instead then. Can't be that large.
