    Sorry for offending you, I know its very hard when a few "bad apples" give a religion a bad name. I'm Christian, and Christianity has gotten a bad rap from things it has done in the past ( and now ) just like Islam has due to extremist fighting a Jihad.

    I was merely joking about the short fat ugly thing, personally I don't take offence to Christ and Moses being in this game. Its not a game I will play, but to those who will find it fun, good for them, none of my business. Just like GTA and Carmageddon, both don't appeal to me so I don't play them,but to some they are fun, there just games and its none of my business what they find pleasure in.

    well, I guess the only reason SMT isn't banned in every other country is because no one knows about it. seriously, it depicts God as the main villain, sure if you dig REALLY deep into the story YHVH is a pretender, not the true God, but still. the religious community would have a field day if it ever went big.

    Well, maybe we just start invading other planets and realms and try to wipe out other aliens instead of more infighting. Either way it won't end peacefully useless the population reduce to 1%.

    But I definitely believe that. By bible feats YHVH is far less powerful than primodial deities let alone the initial void that exist in almost every religion.

    Wherever there's food. And Nintendo.
    It's okay, you didn't know what you were saying. You're lucky you hadn't said that to another person, they would have gotten seriously angry at you. Just so you know, I could care less if they put Muhammad in the game, but what offended me was when you said that he would be short, fat, and ugly and would fight with body odor. I assume you would also be offended if I said the same thing about Jesus, 'The Father', and the Holy Ghost. But I forgive you, just remember to think before you post ;)

    just a quick point, according to SMT lore, YHVH is a pretender, an infestimally small fragment of the True God, The Axiom. but since you have to dig really deep to find this, most people who play it see it as the series making God the main villain, not a pretender.

    In some form of Pantheism everything is a sub gradient of the creator (that has individuality). Like both a drop of water and the ocean are both bodies of water and both are enough to demonstrate the macroscopic properties of water. It just that YHVH trying to pretend to be the actual creator and its "love me or die" attitude make it evil. And at the same time there is also the deistic aspect of the actual creator who either has the wisdom to know none interference or actually die after creation. Also, since existence is a prerequisite of logic we cannot understand what truly lies beyond.
    Edit: I really should stop talking to myself.

    I wouldn't of got offended, I just wouldn't play the game. Throwing a fit about it, and making the developer stop is a sure way to put up a wall between you and the people your trying to reach. Its important not to "force" beliefs on others, you will never truly reach them if you do.

    But masculinity is short, fat, and ugly and would fight with body odor. That's why those who lack femininity are stupid, lustful, weak-minded and worthless.

    Buddha isn't God nor had he ever claimed to be God.

    Because islam is weird and bad, it's not a good thing to circumcise, to have all these strange meaningless rules like don't eat pigs, like pray 5 times a day, sharia, hating people who happen to be born gay, life shouldn't be lived like that.

    The sooner people can drop religion, the better.

    great work Malaysia, great to see the fight of gods was averted thanks to your swift action, shame of the rest of the world for doing nothing to prevent such a potentially world devistating event /s

    And how do you convince them to drop it?
    Actually Satan means enemy and that in a sense every other god is part of Satan. Also in that sense hell means realm that does not belong to God, but since God is evil, I consider his afterlife eternal damnation.

    I once had a vision where countless angels descended upon earth and killed everyone. Then wiping out entire religious order might become an necessity to weaken christian God, but then most Christians are not fanatics and are good people, as are Muslims.

    I won't. Do whatever you want

    I consider everything divine non-existant, because noone can show me God

    *sigh* This is so sad... What about being sensitive towards the ones that religiously & culturally believe there're no deities etc.? So, much for hypocrisy. Lol, the funny & sad thing is they don't seem to realize their own behavior is also blasemy, insensitive etc...


    "Malaysians respect all cultural and religious sensitivities, and the sale and distribution of the religiously insensitive and blasphemous games must be stopped immediately."


    No there's no respect for all cultures and religions there..., not even respect for any deity as apparently they seem to think deities are so weakminded they'd feel offended by something like this. I wouldn't want to be a deity with such "followers" I'd feel like hiding forever too. xD

    Congratulations Malaysian government for showing the world & all gamers how you don't respect all religions (believes) & cultures for making a fool of yourselves. Your actions & words don't match!I wish the Malaysian people would tell them that they shouldn't speak for all Malaysians like that. Don't they have anything better to do?

    Considering the deistic nature of the actual creator, I cannot. Also I am pretty sure everyone's concept of divinity is different cause I consider Jesus's feat legit but also not worthy of worship.
