Generalul… fighting :P

In another post i was telling about Cluj Battle Sessions, where i participated at the Starcraft 2 competition and was very close to winning the finals 😛 Well, there had been a few more editions after that one, where i played other games, not having that much time for Starcraft, partly cause of the games in question, Hearthstone and Dota 2. Anyway, i made it to the semi’s at the HS tournaments, that had more players than the SC ones. Everyone can play Hearthstone, it’s not that “hard” as Starcraft in some regards, even my fiance plays it, but not everyone can truly understand the game and all the decision making involved in creating a deck and then using it.

The last event was part of the “Nationl Battle Sessions” and was the first time when i competed in 2 games, Dota 2 (another newfound passion of mine) and Hearthstone. It was also the first time ESC hosted Dota 2 as a featured game, and while i did enjoy playing it from time to time with some friends, we were not a formed team, and most times only 2 or 3 of us were on. We barely managed to form a 5 man squad, including a guy who was also searching for a team in order to participate. The 5 of us managed to play together for 2-3 games max, but we hoped our competitors weren’t pro either. On location we were confrunted with some technical problems, as our pc’s lacked the appropriate video drivers, net connections hadn’t been made and so on, the delay taking hours. Don’t get me wrong, this kind of stuff happens most of the time, and the fact the members of ESC are all voluntiers makes it kind of hard to be upset by these problems. By the time we got to play, our pc’s were still not optimised, so we had to run Dota with the minimum possible specs, not like we were used to at home. Still, what happened next in our bo3 match against our opponents is something i don’t think it can be hosted on twich, as it’s policies forbid the upload of rape scenes 😛

Morala crestina vs morala moderna

morals

Daca intrebi un crestin la ce e buna religia, sau de ce este nevoie sa-i indobitocim indoctrinam pe cei mici in scoli, ti-ar raspunde, printre altele si ceva in genul: “Pai fara frica de dumnezeu lumea ar ajunge rau, ar fura, ar ucide etc”. Asa sa fie oare? Sa vedem ce spun studiile, nu doar “gura lumii”:

Socant, doar 0,2 % din detinuti sunt atei, intr-o tara unde procentul acestora din totalul populatiei fiind de aproximativ 16%. Un alt raport mai recent ne arata ca numarul celor fara de dumnezeu din puscarii este chiar mai mic!!! http://natskep.com/only-0-07-of-prisoners-are-atheists-according-to-a-2013-federal-bureau-of-prisons-report/

Alta statistica, la fel de interesanta, priveste gradul de bunastare a unei natii in raport cu nivelul de religiozitate. “Surpriza-surpriza”, cele mai sarace tarii sunt tot cele a caror populatie crede in fripturile din ceruri, in timp ce unele majoritar ateiste, ca Suedia de exemplu, au printre cel mai ridicat nivel de trai din lume…

In cartea sa “The God Delusion”, tradusa la noi ca “Himera credintei in Dumnezeu”, este descris experimentul efectuat de psihologul George Tamarin, care a folosit relatarea biblica a bataliei de la Ierihon, in care la comanda lui Iosua, israelitii au masacrat un oras intreg, arzandu-l apoi pana la temelie, intreband apoi un grup de studiu format din copii de 8-14 ani daca sunt de acord cu modul in care au procedat cei de mai sus. In mod covarsitor, raspunsul a fost afirmativ, motivandu-se faptul ca Dumnezeu a dorit acest lucru, isrealitii erau “poporul ales” si nu locuitorii acelei cetati, acestia erau de alta religie si meritau sa moara etc. Un grup similar de copii a primit acelasi text, insa numele lui Iosua a fost inlocuit cu “generalul Lin”, iar Israel cu “un regat chinez de acum 3000 ani”, iar astfel 75% au raspuns ca nu aproba acest genocid barbar. Ce a facut ca o fapta abominabila si incompatibila cu morala moderna sa devina brusc acceptabila a fost asadar religia, in numele careia poti ucide femei, copii si batrani, pentru ca nu, doar asa vrea o creatura atotputernica, plina de iubire…

O compilatie a multor acte de morala si dragoste crestineasca din Biblie se gasesc si pe logosfera.ro cu tot cu pasajul pe care il puteti cauta in “Cartea Cartilor” personala (pana si eu ca ateu am una :P).

Evident, nu cred ca mai este nevoie de nici un studiu pentru a constata realitatea din Romania, unde aproape toti marii corupti pe care i-am vazut anchetati/arestati in ultima vreme sunt credinciosi si bat cruci pe banda rulanta, pe langa clasicul: “Mi-e frica doar de Dumnezeu!” sau “Dumnezeu stie ca sunt nevinovat”. Mai nou, parlamentarii care se fofileaza in fata urmaririi penale, cersesc mila colegilor lor (multi dintre ei de asemenea cu musca pe caciula) pentru a scapa de arestarea preventiva:
