Ok.

As an actual satanist I found that hilarious :)

Skull & Bones? What do they have against Cypress Hill?

They also explicitly mention just two types of musical genres.

I guess if you're a rap and hip-hop fan you're okay. Also if you like electronica but don't go to raves you seem to be safe.

Fornication - thats just a description of the carnal part - so I guess anyone who isn't celibate (for life) is at risk.

I'm amused that Shoju only highlighted heavy metal on that list....

Apparently being guilded with Worldie should be added as well.

Vegetarianism? What's the logic behind that being linked to satan?

...what the hell is remote viewing? >_>

In a nutshell, remote viewing is the claim that a person can remotely view a place, people, and actions happening in real time, without use of technology and using only their own ESP abilities.

An example is that if I stated I had strong ESP abilities, and I could remotely view something. One way to test would be to put me into a room that offers no external stimuli, and have me tell the audience what is going on in Nika's workplace right now, and with whom, and have it be accurate.

That's the most basic idea of it, anyway (I know this only because I've been researching ESP stuff for a story I'm working on).

As for what Shoju linked, I'm also confused by vegetarianism making that list, but no veganism?

(Though Twilight Films is pretty hilarious.)

Veganism is too niche for fundies to care about it, that list is kind of a diss. :(

The list is just batshit insane. I mean... There are so many things on this list that make so sense to me, and I grew up the son of a fundamental christian pastor. This list is even off base to my father...

I'm going to assume that Vegetarianism, will be propped up by Cain and Abel, and Cain's Jealousy at his brother's prosperity in Burnt Offerings to God, which led to him murdering his father. That's a HUGE stretch, but my bet is that would be the reasoning.

I'm not sure what they would use as a justification of Cyberpunk Culture... Unless they are considering it an "extension" of "Goth Culture", which in the minds of fundies is all about dressing in black, wearing upside down crosses, and selling your soul to Marilyn Manson, who is the "preparer" for the Anti-Christ.

I laugh hysterically at the inclusion of Vampirism and Lycanthropy.... Did I miss the memo? Do we have... "real" Vampires and Werewolves running around? Because.... depending on what mythos is "true", I might just sign up to be an immortal bloodsucker.

Video Games is an interesting inclusion on the list, since some of the most successful evangelical christian products do in fact, have their own "video games".

All in all, this list is awful, even when viewed in the light of the "Fundies". When I showed my dad the list, he just shook his head, and muttered something about scary big words and cliches.

I chuckled, since I say that a lot to him.

Setting up a new phone. Android, but different stuff on it because this one's Huawei with mostly stock Android UI, old one was Xperia skinned in a lot of places.

I really, really do not like the new one's keyboard or messaging & contacts themes. I realised this after setting up all my apps and contacts and erasing all data on the old phone.

I hate the new TSM, specially because for some reason, it failed to import all my old settings, so I gotta redo all my auctioning groups again and the new TSM is all confusing.

I've seen owners tying those bags to tree branches o_o

Funnily enough, I saw Vikki Stone's Edinburgh Fringe show last night and she sang a song about this exact thing. Apparently she collects pictures at www.shit-bags.com

In Genesis, God says that they can eat anything that moves, not just plants, and in one of the letters to the Romans, vegetarians are described as weak but should not be judged (and they should not judge others).
(Gen, 9.3; Rom, 14.2 - yes, I took the time to look it up for you :) )

Same thing is repeated quite a few times throughout both the old and new testaments. They could just be crazy nutjobs though (even if I do think that vegetarians are an unnecessary complication at mealtimes - and I refuse to cater for vegans, they can bring their own food).

And also in the New Testament, Paul specifically has a vision from God to "Eat all the Things", and not to worry about the silly kosher rules, only real restriction was don't eat meat that was sacrificed to idols, if you were told it was.

But a gateway to Wordlieism? err Satanism?

Ret paladin buffs. We were pretty decent spot in PvP balance and those buffs maybe enough to pull us in OP side. I'm fearing "TO THE GROUND!" and gentle caress of bat but hopefully for nothing.

Apparently they never read the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Daniel either. They ate only vegetables and water, were smarter and outperformed the King's wise men, and survived a fiery furnace because of an angel sent by God to intervene due to their godly devotion. Don't expect weirdos to understand much less follow their own narrative.
