    I love Yoko Shimomura's music, it's so beautiful. I think she did a great job capturing the feel of the Disney Worlds in her music, and her original pieces are just as good.

    EDIT: Oops... I meant original as in pieces composed for a non-Disney world. Should've been clearer, my bad.

    You know, I've actually thought about this quite a bit myself. What if it there was one god, but different cultures interpreted that one god differently, thus creating a whole slew of varying religions? That would certainly throw a wrench into the works...

    I always said "Tee-dus" in my head since I'd never heard it pronounced before... then in KH2 when Selphie said "Tai-dus" I was like dang... but now that I've played Dissidia it shall forever remain Tee-dus =P

    You know, I really can't help but think about FF7 when I read this. Spoilers for anyone who hasn't played...
    When Meteor comes, everyone is saying it will be the end of the world. Some people are completely panicking, buying everything they can, spending all their money in order to enjoy themselves in their last moments, etc. and really look quite stupid. Others are just going about their daily lives like normal because if Meteor does fall, then there's nothing they can do about it and if it doesn't, then they won't have wasted their life's savings or anything like that.
    My point is just that personally, I don't believe anything will happen in 2012. This is just another "OMG the world is ending" moment in history, and like all the others, it will amount to nothing. But on the extremely unlikely event something does happen, is it really worth worrying about? Not really.

    I have recently discovered Final Fantasy too. Got Crisis Core back in June, then AC Complete, then FFVII via PSN (somehow I managed to follow everything lol), then FFVIII via PSN, and I got Dissidia and Dirge of Cerberus for Christmas. I am loving FF and am seriously considering trying the other games due to Dissidia (for some reason Zidane pissed me off for a while but now I like him fine, so what the hey)

    Anyhoo... as far as I can tell, you don't have to play in "order" i.e. FF, FFII, FFIII, etc. The games aren't really related to each other except for a few names, the Summons, Chocobos, Moogles and some weapons/items. I may be missing some things though, like I said I am new to this.

    I can't really recommend any games, since I've only played two (three if you count Dissidia, and I'm not counting DoC/CC), but... I loved VII, and I really like VIII so far. I suppose VII would be the safest to start with since it is probably the most popular FF game and most everyone seems to like it.

    I think something would've been thought of to make it work. Like... a Keysaw or something XD

    Seriously though, I'm glad he ended up changing it. I don't think I would've liked Sora with a chainsaw.

    From what Riku was saying, I think they weren't sure whether there were actually other worlds or not, they were just wanting to go out and look for them. How they got the idea there are other worlds in the first place, I'm not 100% sure. I also don't think they would've gotten anywhere on a raft. That bit seemed pretty impulsive to me :P

    XD That is so true!

    I chose Vexen too, he scares me and annoys me at the same time...

    I think people are overreacting to this in the extreme. I truly do not care either way. I do not feel that Christianity is more potent or is better than other religions because of what is written on our money and I certainly wouldn't be offended if it was removed. I think it would be a waste of time, but I wouldn't be bothered by it in the slightest. Quit worrying about trivial, borderline unnoticeable details and get on with your life. Seriously.

    Of course an atheist should be allowed to run for president. A candidate's beliefs should have nothing to do with whether they they deserve to be president. I will admit there would be problems, like if one person was atheist and one was Christian, people would vote based solely on the beliefs of whoever they voted for. And I would be a little worried if they were especially hardcore, that they would completely get rid of religion, particularly Christianity (I have seen people who feel Christians have no right to their beliefs). But if I agreed with most of the principles of an atheist candidate, I would certainly vote for him.

    I see what you're saying, but I think you can believe something as long as you're open to other possibilities being true. Having an opinion doesn't necessarily make you close-minded unless you're unwilling to consider other ideas.

    Personally I respect other people's beliefs/opinions, and other people in general unless there is good reason not to, but that's just how I do things.

    I do honestly try to keep as open a mind as possible, but it is exceedingly difficult sometimes. And I admit my mind may not be open all the time or as open as I wish I could have it, but I do try.

    Ah. Well then. Never mind :/

    Hmmm :/ That's odd. Unless his family is deliberately standing in the way of him becoming a priest, there's really no reason for him to take it that far...

    Ah, I get it now. I would have posted earlier but I didn't quite understand your question XD

    I think it truly depends on the situation. If someone is the only believer in a family of atheists and the family is threatening to cut off all connections to that person because of their beliefs, or vice versa, then you shouldn't give up your beliefs in that sort of situation. However, in normal circumstances, I think (if you are a believer) you should keep your family and God at about the same importance. I don't think God would want you to disregard your family or anything because of your belief in him.

    I was under the impression the evidence was something used to support an argument but wasn't certain, and proof was something that was undeniable. Arguments, then. Whatever.

    I think I see what you're saying, and you do have a bit of a point. I'm trying to figure out exactly what you mean, though. If you're talking about general facts, that's taking it to a bit of an extreme. I mean, does knowing that the sky is blue limit our free will? Extremely technically, I suppose it could, but nobody is going to be bothered enough by the color of the sky to be upset by the fact that it's blue and there's nothing they can do about it.

    If you're talking about major, potentially life-changing stuff like evolution or the existence of God... There are still many theories out there that haven't been proven, but are thought to be true (or not). Not everything that's true can necessarily be proven (I'm NOT saying "God can't be disproven, so he must exist" because that's nonsense).

    How so? And it's not just the close-mindedness that bugs me, it's also the way people express it. I'm a lot more patient with close-mindedness, and in some cases arrogance when it's not flat-out rude and disrespectful. And I will say you've seemed to improve quite a bit in that department since our last debate. Notice how I'm not flaring up and getting all defensive because of some rude, offensive, or antagonistic comment you made on my beliefs.

    And that's fine. I don't have a problem with you believing that. I don't necessarily think you're wrong, I just disagree with you. (If that makes sense... I know it seems really contradictory but hopefully you'll know what I mean.)

    You're right, there is no proof showing God exists. There is also no proof that he does not exist. There is only evidence, and quite a lot of it, both for and against. I don't really think the truth is knowable. If God did exist and he showed himself, then that would nullify the idea of free will, since people would have to believe in him whether they wanted to or not. And besides God showing himself to us, I don't think there's any possible way to find out, unless you were raised an atheist in which case you're either smarter or more emotionally stable, and in either case you're able to understand concepts like this that we Christians just can't wrap our tiny brains around
    -_- I'm fairly certain God exists, but I don't know. He may exist, he may not. I believe he does.

    Disclaimer: People who claim to know the absolute truth about God, whether they're overly religious or hardcore atheist, drive me crazy. The reason I targeted atheists is because, for the most part, the atheists here are showing arrogance/close-mindedness in ways that are a lot more smart-ass/nasty than the Christians. And that really ticks me off :/

    Be careful. That statement makes you sound very close-minded, like if there was some discovery that proved beyond a doubt God did not exist, you would still believe in him.
