D&D is good for your brain!

I found an interesting article about how Dungeons and Dragons has helped students perform better at school - both socially and academically. Some of the teachers have called it a "multidisciplinary study." You can read the article here, if you'd like.

Game on!

Re: Since it came up recently...

You probably already know my thoughts in general. ;) But I thought it was interesting that one of the deciding factors of the CCC was their interpretation of the Trinity. I'm sure the LDS church isn't unique in its interpretation that Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are three separ...

The dangers of renouncing your faith

I just read an article about John L. Cooper, lead singer of the Christian rock band Skillet, and his reaction to a couple of Christian pastors who have recently renounced their faith. You can read the article here , if you'd like. A couple of quotes really stood out to me. We now have a church cultu...

Re: Religions I Personally Cannot Believe In and Why (And Why I Do Believe In Christ)

It's not a problem to me if you have issues with the LDS doctrine. What I had a problem with was you determining (based upon your own conclusions, rather than any prompting from the Holy Spirit) that the LDS church is not a Christian church. Trust me that it is very much a Christian organization, ba...

Re: Religions I Personally Cannot Believe In and Why (And Why I Do Believe In Christ)

Your criticism of the LDS church seems to be based on what others have (mistakenly) said about the church, rather than researching the faith yourself. So a question for you - did you read the Book of Mormon or talk to any LDS missionaries before drawing your conclusions? Or is it based primarily upo...

Re: Religions I Personally Cannot Believe In and Why (And Why I Do Believe In Christ)

Yeah, I'm disappointed you decided to target another Christian faith with your initial post as well. I certainly could find logical fallacies with many other Christian faiths as well, but I don't do that. Why not? Because regardless of our different denominations, we're all brothers and sisters in C...

Re: What is your opinion on videogame piracy?

In my opinion, it is a matter of copyright law. The laws may be different in Brazil, but here in the U.S. published material is protected by law. Here's an example. Let's say that I publish a book (yay!) I decide to give a copy of that book to my buddy here, ArcticFox. Now let's say that AF decides ...

Re: Scrambling the Reactor: The Death of an almost 2 decade old D&D club.

I'm not sure how I missed this thread when you first posted it. That's great to hear, man! I've come to a similar conclusion after the last campaign I ran. If I fire up another one (outside my family, that is), it'll be just with people with a similar political mindset. That way we don't end up disr...

Re: Is "Theo" as a name blasphemous?

I wouldn't think so. After all, many non-Christians name their children "Chris," probably without thinking about the origins of that name. And of course, "Jesus" (pronounced HAY-soos) is a pretty common name in many Hispanic countries. If it was an intentional snub at God it would be one thing. But ...

Baldur's Gate 3

Has anyone else seen the trailer for this one yet? I won't post it here because it is pretty... well, freaky is putting it mildly. It is on Steam, for those who are brave enough to risk it. Now the body horror that the priest of Tempus suffers is pretty horrific... but I nearly jumped out of my chai...

When will the game be finished?

I've been thinking about this off and on, and I think one of the reasons why I don't play Minecraft as often as many other players is because of the constant updates. There have been many times when I've constructed a home or explored an elaborate world... and then they announce a new update. So for...
