Atheism anyone???

Below is a list of the most commonly repeated Christian cliches. You will see these statements, or slight variations of them, in nearly every message board and newsgroup that deals with religion versus non-religion. Please feel free to use this list to point out the complete lack of originality, or the predictability of the average Christian in debating religious subjects.

The Pathos or "I pity you, Fool! " group
These statements basically say that the Christian is a superior person who must have pity on all of the poor, lowly unbelievers.
(1) "I'll pray for you."
(2) "Jesus Loves You"
(3) "God Loves You"
(4) "I feel sorry for you."
(5) "Atheists suffer from a mental illness that makes them unable to detect God/Spiritual things."
(6) "Jesus still loves you!"

The "atheism = religion/faith" group
These all boil down to saying that not believing in a religion is the same as believing in one.
(7) "You have to believe in SOMETHING!"
(8) "Everyone worships SOMETHING!"
(9) "It takes a lot more faith to believe in Evolution than it does to believe in God."
(10) "It takes a lot more faith to ignore the evidence of God than it does to believe in him."
(11) "I only wish that my faith in God was as strong as your faith in Atheism/Evolution."
(12) "You may think your happy, but you can only know TRUE HAPPINESS through Jesus Christ."

The "You're stupid, I'm smart, so stop wasting my time..." group
In these cliches, the Christian tells you that you're either blind, stupid, ignorant, or willingly deceiving yourself, despite how much better your argument is than theirs.
(13) "You have already made up your mind, and it's a waste of time to try to convince you."
(14) "You have chosen to be blind to the TRUTH!"
(15) "You have closed your heart off to the TRUTH!"
(16) "You have obviously been deceived by the devil."
(17) "I found Jesus. Why can't you?"
(18) "The fool sayeth in his heart that there is no God!"
(19) "You're obviously running away from God!"
(20) "You're obviously hiding from the truth!"
(21) "Though you say you don't believe, deep down inside, you know there is a God!"

The "God's obvious to me, What's your problem?" group
This group assumes that all unbelievers have a mental block, or cannot see what it obvious to the believer.
(22) "If there is no God, how do you explain the world we live in?"
(23) "What happened in your life that made you hate God?"
(24) "Of course the Bible sounds like foolishness! Without faith in God, you cannot understand his wisdom!"
(25) "Even though you don't believe it, Jesus/God Loves you!"
(26) "Even though you don't believe it, Jesus/God is REAL!"

The "Your life has no meaning" group
These statements tell the unbeliever that their life is worthless, pointless, meaningless, or otherwise not worth anything, unless they accept JESUS
(27) "Well, those people were not TRUE Christians..."
(28) "A universe without God is a universe without Hope!"
(29) "Without a God, life is meaningless."
(30) "Christianity is not just the best answer. It is the only answer."
(31) "You have devoted your life to something NEGATIVE (atheism), rather than something POSITIVE (christianity, of course)."

The "Just you wait..." group
These all basically say that you'll eventually be a believer, when you're old enough, smart enough, have a revelation, etc.
(32) "One day, you will know what THE TRUTH is!
(33) "Some day, God will call you."
(34) "One day you will call to God for help."
(35) "If you simply have faith in him, you will see that God is real."
(36) "I was once like you, a foolish, young, unbeliever..."
(37) "There are no atheists in foxholes..."

The "Threats of Hellfire" group
These are all empty, pointless threats that even if you can win the debate, you're going to go to hell, so f___ you.
(38) "The day will come when you realize the lord is your only salvation."
(39) "It's too bad that you're going to Hell."
(40) "One day you will have to answer to Jesus Christ Himself, and then it wont be so funny when he throws your unrepentent soul into HELL."
(41) "You had better get right with God now before it's too late."
(42) "Hope you have an asbestos suit, cause you're going to HELL."
(43) "Hope you enjoy your special place in HELL."
(44) "One day, when you're burning in Hell, you'll remember this conversation, and that I warned you!"

My personal favorite finishes off the list here. I call this the,

"I am a real Christian but you were never a real Christian!" group.
These short quips are often used to immediately shut the mind of the true believer so he or she does not have to think for a second longer. The arrogance and pride of such individuals is striking.
(45) "There is no such thing as an ex-christian, honey."
(46) "You only THOUGHT you were a Christian."
(47) "If you really had the Holy Spirit, you could never doubt GOD."
(48) "When God gave out the GIFT of faith, He left you out."
(49) "I know Jesus is real in my heart and if you ever had a real personal relationship with him like I have, you would know He is real too."

Stress Management

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g. The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it."

"If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance. In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on. As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden."

"So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can. Relax; pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy it!"

And then he shared some ways of dealing with the burdens of life:

-_- Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
-_- Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
-_- Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
-_- Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
-_- If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
-_- If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
-_- It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
-_- Never buy a car you can't push.
-_- Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.
-_- Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
-_- The second mouse gets the cheese.
-_- When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
-_- Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
-_- You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
-_- Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
-_- We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
-_- A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour

Power Brawler Leveling Guide


lvl 1-15 little hooligans

lvl 15-20+ hooligans and bandits(while pursuing the nurse quest[cigarette butts])

lvl 20-30+ street junkies(while pursuing the nurse quest[stolen bandages])

lvl 40+ by this lvl u have invested lot of gold(kya pwede ka na makabili ng maraming pots) palvl na u sa mga brawler sa sports field or sa SC2(dito ako nag pa lvl 54 sa SC2)

lvl 54 labas ka na po(pero lvl 30 ata pwede ka na lumabas)-nasabi ko lng po ito dahil nga sa kalambutan ng pow brawler, mahirap pa po mag lure sa labas ng lvl 40+ pa lng po. Unless full set armored na ang brawler mo po.

lvl 54 onward sa mga swordee ardie and blood drinker ka muna... Kaya mo na mag lure jan kahit 3-4 lng dala mo sa spot nyo.

lvl 58-68 go for the Construction Fatty. A good spot is at C4 construction site (SG) or if at other campuses just head outside the perimeter of the school zone

lvl 69-74 go for the freezing halogen (assuming you have a party because their ice attack really bites.. ouch! hehehe!) OR clowns/SGDs

lvl 75-80 Leonair would be a good spot, outside Leonair is good enough

lvl 81-89 Leonair's 1st floor and 2nd floor

Wow atlast POW TYPE Brawler Guide...Hi Blaq, husband to ni brean..hehe

For me da best ang Pow Type build pag higher level na kasi doon mo na ma eenjoy yung mga da best na skilss like Tornado Kick, Makaze, Ankle crush at upper Jab..

My best combination during PK and duels since 100+ pa lng ako;

1.) Apply Buffs - Concentration or Evasion
2.) Powerkick - dapat master (+45% added sa damage ng skills mo)
3.) Inuuna ko Tornado kick (wala pa ko Makaze pero malapit na) usually pag less than 100 level ng kalaban isang tira lng pag master ang power kick
4.) Pag di pa deds sa Tornado dahil 100+ pala ang level may rider ako na Agility boost
5.) Then kung di ka pa tumba at malakas pala kalaban pwede mo ding isunod ung Elevated Kick

Pero sa experience ko Power Kick + Tornado Kick + Agility Boost kahit 117 ung kalaban di umuubra..90% ng mga nakalaban ko taob sa combination na yan ^^ wag lang dex archer ahihihi

I'm really eager to get Makaze kick 2 levels na lng ako yipee..Pag na ka power kick ka plus makaze da best na pang PK talaga at pang duel..One hit lagi kalaban...hehehe

Nad one more thing kung gusto ninyo cgurado ang panalo use the EP gaunts ung Heavy Tough +7 pag yun gamit ko 99% panalo sa duel..hehehe

Just my 2 cents....

One more advise pag nasa party wag mag lulure pag walang buff like TQ, EC, at CS dahil sa sobrang lambot natin isang hit ka lng ng fisherman deds ka hehehe...

Always carry MP ung pinaka maliit lng kasi maliit lng MP natin...SP is optional kung mag sosolo ka tska mo lng kailangan kasi may buff naman ang shaman na SP..Bring a lot of HP...Wag umasa sa shaman dahil cgurado dafa kayo...hehehe

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? is a Latin phrase that translates to "Who will guard the guards?" or "Who shall watch the watchers themselves?"

The question was first asked by Plato in the Republic, his great work on government and morality. The perfect society as described by Socrates, the main character of the work, relies on laborers, slaves, and tradesmen. The guardian class is to protect the city. The question is put to Socrates, who will guard the guardians? or, who will protect us against the protectors? Plato's answer to this is: they will guard themselves against themselves. We must tell the guardians a noble lie. The noble lie will inform them that they are better than those they serve and it is, therefore, their responsibility to guard and protect those lesser than themselves. We will instill in them a distaste for power or privilege, they will rule because they believe it right, not because they desire it.

The saying has since been used by many people to ponder the insoluble question of where ultimate power should reside. The answer for the United States was found in the separation of powers. Never give ultimate power to any one group; the executive, legislative, or judicial; have the interests of each compete and conflict. Each group will then find it in its best interest to impede the functioning of the rest and this will keep ultimate power under constant struggle and, thereby, out of any one group's hands.
