How to argue with an atheist... 11 guidelines...
  1. Don’t pretend to be an authority or representative for your god…and don’t purport to speak for your god… Atheists don’t believe god exists, so you will appear as a liar and deceiver…
  2. Don’t quote from the bible, or it’s apologetic “experts”… Atheists don’t believe the bible is anything more than man made fables and lies, so you will appear as a liar and deceiver…
  3. Don’t use emotions or feelings or impressions or “encounters” or “miracles” as proofs for your god… Atheists don’t believe they originate from anything more that your hysteria fueled imagination…so you will appear as mentally unstable and delusional…
  4. Don’t point to nature as proof for your god… Atheists don’t believe nature proves any god…in fact the exact opposite…they see nature as disproving that any god was ever involved in it…
  5. Don’t pretend to be godly, or born again, a new creature, god infused, more moral or in any way better than a person who does not pretend to be religious or follow the bible…for atheists will simply expose your blatant hypocrisy…
  6. Don’t regurgitate religious propaganda, or pretend it depicts actual events or history… Atheists don’t believe god exists, or did any of the things religion claims god did…so you will appear as a liar and deceiver…
  7. Don’t make excuses, or try to conceal all the immorality, self-aggrandizement and financial defrauding religion and religious leaders have done… Atheists see that as immoral behavior…
  8. Don’t try to force your subjective religious rules on others, through legislation… Atheists see that as immoral behavior…
  9. Don’t try to force your religious fantasy on children, or on others within public facilities… Atheists see that as immoral behavior…
  10. Don’t preach to an atheist…directly…or through prayer… Atheists see that as deceptive and immoral behavior…

Bonus:

11. Simply present any verifiable “evidence” that you have, for your god…or honestly admit that you have none…and then let your god appear and speak for itself…(if it exists at all…!)

Knight Takes Queen (Lokane) -- Coming soon!

Knight Takes Queen

Forced to marry Thor, King of Asgard, for protection, Jane finds herself thrown headfirst into the fray of “virtuous” knights and needy courtiers of her husband’s court.  Chief among them and nearly equal in power is Loki, the king’s bastard brother who may have been raised by a witch near a lake, but no one ever talks about that lest they find themselves at the wrong end of one of Loki’s weapons. 

Jane hates Loki and his acerbic wit almost instantly.  Though she finds him alluringly attractive, she knows he is also conceited, domineering, and very, very, very dangerous.  None of the other men of the court seem to trust Loki, save for Thor who loves his brother unconditionally despite all evidence to the contrary.  Knowing that a goodhearted, though brutish, man like Thor would not accept someone into his inner circle who was unworthy, Jane attempts to give Loki the benefit of the doubt. 

She realizes too late her mistake in giving him an inch and allowing him to take a mile—and that she has lost her hatred along with her heart—placing herself in a precarious, potentially deadly situation between two exceedingly powerful men.

Notes: This is based on the Arthur/Guinevere/Lancelot legend, with a Marvel twist.  I’ve borrowed pieces of various retellings and iterations of the legend, including Chrétien de Troyes, Geoffrey of Monmouth, the musical Camelot and others.  Instead of setting it in England or another actual country or over an actual event in history, I’ve chosen to create Asgard as a fictional kingdom, much like Camelot was in the original legend.  The knights of Thor’s “Round Table” will be recognizable Marvel characters that have gone medieval.  Mostly it is all medieval fantasy, based in medieval fact, set in a medieval land.  I hope you enjoy it!

Alright so I was playing through Mink’s GE in Re:Connect and I noticed something on the wall.

Now 3 separate things occurred to me:

1.That could be a prayer fan. Prayer fans come in all sorts of styles since the artists often handcraft them and choices in decoration vary from tribe to tribe. This would probably be the most sense since Mink is often depicted as praying throughout both games.

2. That could a dance fan. Women and man dancers use these so it’s a possibility that Mink himself was a dancer.

3. And for the more morose possibility, a member of his family could have been a dancer and he know keeps it as a reminder. In my opinion this would be the least likely option as there were graves made for this family that whoever owned the fan would have more than likely been buried with it. 

I really love that Mink is an indigenous character because of some the cultural aspects N+C brought into the game. Myself being an American Indian I’m glad that there’s a native character that more than the “all-knowing and magical native” trope who also had a back story that could reflect from actual events in history. To sum it up just finding little things like this from Mink’s route and even from the extra bits is always great.
