John asks…

Some questions about Mass Effect 3 Ending – SPOILERS?

So here i have some questions about Mass Effect 3 Ending. I hope someone could answer :

1 – WHY the hell the Mass Relays are destroied in any endings you choose?
2 – By choosing to control the reapers, does Shepard still get alive? Because to control them, he needs to… Doesnt he?
3 – Why Miranda died even if i got full paragon by trainer?
4 – What happened to Earth in the Paragon Ending? Because i didnt see it burning… It seemed to be ok.
5 – Is it true that BioWare will launch new ME3 endings?
6 – Will BioWare launch new Mass Effect games? Like a Mass Effect 4 for example? How much time should we wait ’till then?

Ken asks…

Mass Effect 3 Gameplay and Storyline awesomeness?

I believe Mass Effect is either the best or one of the best games i’ve ever played.

The story from the first one to the last was full of surprises and thing’s I wouldn’t have guessed, Oh yeah before I say anything bad this will contain spoilers.

I couldn’t believe how much time I wasted not playing the game when I first got it, simply because I didn’t think it was very good, but when I was really bored I decided to play it again and got hooked.

I loved the characters, well the ones from the first one, without them it wouldn’t have been the same game, my favorite characters being Garrus, Liara and Tali. I didn’t really connect with the characters from the second one but I thought the second one wasn’t as good as the first.

I knew that Shepard would die in the end as it IS the last one, and I had a feeling ever since I found out about the crucible? Is that the name of the weapon? Whatever, after I found out about the crucible I thought it would wipe out all life in the galaxy, which in the end it was a choice which was something I didn’t want but thought would happen. I’ve never played a game that made me feel something I didn’t really care much, I played them and that was it, but with this, when I found out that I wouldn’t see Liara, Garrus, Tali or even Ashly I did feel a bit upset, and also because they were stuck on some planet disconnected from other life.

Don’t get me wrong this does contain a question, which I shall ask now.

If you destroy all Machines and AI’s and VI’s and the Mass Relays, does it stop all species from using that technology again or does it just destroy the ones that were working at the time? Because then the Geth could be created again ships could then be made again and from the remains of the Mass Relays and Reaper ships could advance technology further, right? But which was the most morally good? and which one was the most evil? Because as I watched Shepard limp towards one of the choices I was weighing out the pros and cons for each and I thought that;

If I chose too kill all life in the galaxy to create a new DNA of all life and machine then obviously everyone would die which is bad, but then you start a new race without the threat of the reapers which is good.

And if I chose to control the reapers then it would stop people from dying and all the technology would be saved, but then I thought that the people would use the reapers as a weapon to attack each other for resources and stuff.

So from the choices I decided that it would be best to destroy the reapers as you were trying to do for the past 3 games, and then I killed EDI and thought I killed my crew but apparently they were fine.

Also one last thing… Why do people continue making bad games like COD but put a limit on how many games will be made when they are good or awesome? I mean God of War which was pretty awesome ended at the third one too? As has ME? And do you think they will ever make a new mass effect? I mean Halo ended at the third game and was terrible but now, there’s gunna be a halo 4? It’s a trilogy right?

So for this extremally long question, what is the best and worst ending? And what would you rate the series?

Why does shepard have to die

Richard asks…

Mass Effect 3 question (BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!!)?

So as my title of my question suggests there will be spoilers. So for those of you reading this then I take it you had beaten through Mass Effect 3 and saw the ending as I did?

Well does anyone else hate the ending in that you had to choose to either destroy yourself and the Reapers, or control them and let them live on, or the worst ending of all (the one where Shepard had synthesis with them, which I refer to as the Hippy Ending.

Like it seems like no matter what you do, your Shepard dies either way or lets the asshole Reapers live and ends up being like the Illusive man.

Like what is up with the endings having to be so depressing, like aren’t videogames about escapism from lack of happy endings in real life? We play for hundreds of hours of Mass Effect 1 & 2 and we get the shittiest ending in all of bioware history.

Like if Mass Effect is a videogame with multiple choices why can’t we as players choose the ending we want like being able to have the Reapers destroyed, the Galaxy saved and having Shepard be on a tropical planet somewhere making out with his/her love interest instead of dying either a gruesome death, a hippy death or a being a dick like the Illusive man by controlling the Reapers?

Like don’t we have enough videogames with downer endings as it is like with Halo Reach and many other videogames with sad endings.

What happened to videogames making us feel happy?

Your Questions About If You Choose To Accept This Mission Quote

July 21, 2012
By

Sharon asks…

Ramadan: Does it mean that who does not accept Imam Ali (as) his or her MOLA is NOT a MOMIN?

QURAN 5:67] O Messenger! proclaim the (message) which hath been sent to thee from thy Lord. If thou didst not, thou wouldst not have fulfilled and proclaimed His mission. And Allah will defend thee from men (who mean mischief). For Allah guideth not those who reject Faith.

The followers of “Muhammad and ali Muhammad” are quite certain that this verse descended about the wilayah (regency) of Ali on the day of Ghadir Khum, and the traditions in our records on the subject are numerous and consecutively transmitted through the Imams of the holy posterity of the Holy Prophet, whose reporting is enough for us, and should also be so for the Muslims, because they alone are the truthful (sadiqin) as per verse 119 of al Tawbah (refer to Hafiz Abu Nu-aym; Muwaffaq ibn Ahmad; and Ibn Hajar in his Sawa-iq al Muhriqah, chap. 11, p. 90).

Ibn abi Hatim quotes Abu Sa-id Khudri and Antara; Ibn Marduwayh quotes Abdullah bin Masud and Abu Sa-id Khudri; Ibn Asakir quotes Abu Said Khudri; Abu Bakr Shirazi, Muhammad bin Talha Qarshi and Sayyid Ali al Hamdani quote Abdullah bin Abbas; Nizamuddin Nayshapuri quotes Abdullah bin Abbas, Abu Sa-id Khudri and Bara bin Azib, to say that this verse was revealed about the wilayah of Ali ibn abi Talib; and Sabbagh Maliki in Fusul al Muhimma; Badruddin Ayni in Umdatul Qari, Muhaddith Shirazi in Kitab al Arba-in; Shahabuddin Ahmad in Tawdih al Dala-il; and Mu-tamad Khan Badakhshani in Miftah al Nijat also confirm it.

Hafiz Abu Bakr bin Marduwayh in Manaqib quotes Abdullah bin Masud that during the life time of the Holy Prophet they used to recite this verse with Inna Aliyyan Mawla al mu-minin (Ali is the master of the faithful).

The shortest narration of the event of Ghadir is given below:

While returning from his last hajj, in 10 Hijra, the Holy Prophet, alongwith the huge caravan of nearly one hundred thousand Muslims, made a halt at Ghadir Khum, a midway stop between Makka and Madina.

He had received the following verse from Allah:

O Our Messenger! Deliver what has been sent down unto you from your Lord; and if you do not, then you have not delivered His Message; and surely Allah will protect you from men.”

(MA-IDAH: 67)

The Holy Prophet mounted a tall pulpit and delivered a long sermon, recounting his services towards the fulfilment of his mission as the messenger of Allah. He asked the audience whether he had conveyed to them the commands of Allah, enumerating them one after another.

The huge gathering, in one voice, said “yes”. “Do I wield authority over your souls more than you do?” He asked.

“Certainly it is so, O Messenger of Allah” . They replied.

Then he asked Ali to come up. He held him in both his hands, raised him high, so much that the whole assembly of men and women saw him clearly.

He again addressed them:

“O men and women! Allah is my Mawla (Lord-Master). I am the mawla of the Momineen. I have a clear authority over their souls, And of whomsoever I am the mawla (this) Ali is his mawla. O Allah! Love him who loves Ali, hate him who hates Ali.”

At the end of this declaration the following verse was revealed:

This day I have perfected for you, your religion, and have completed my favor on you, and have chosen for you Islam, as religion.”

(MA-IDAH: 3)

admin answers:

Hmmm yeah they might be muslim but are not momin, coz they have not followed the basic thing that is making imam ali AS as maula so the verse revealed after he was made maula doesnt apply to them coz their religion has not been fulfilled as yet coz they havent made him maula as yet! X(

so yes the person who doesnt consider imam ali As as him maula is not a momin.

But sadly a few on here even disrespect our maula :(
may Allahswt punish the nasibis!
Ilahi ameen

Mandy asks…

Christians, how do you explain my predicament?

To give you some background, I was brought up by two Christian parents. I went to church 3x a week, Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night. I went on missions trips to different countries as a teen. I really, truly and honestly believed in God. I believed in the Bible, and everything that comes with it. I prayed to God several times a day and felt close to Him, but there was a problem. I have known from a very young age, that I am gay. I have always been attracted to other men and never to women. When I was 16 I spent about a year begging and crying at the foot of my bed asking God to make me straight. I nearly attempted suicide at one point, but I was afraid I would go to Hell if I did.

At some point when I was 17, I stopped going to church and believing in the Christian view of God. I came to the conclusion that
1) God doesn’t exist
2) God exists and doesn’t love me enough to change me
or 3) God exists and loves me the way I am.

I chose to go with option 3 because I do feel that there is a God, and I can’t fathom that he wouldn’t love someone he created. Anyway, the reason I am sharing this with you is I see a lot of people saying that homosexuality is a choice…or that homosexuals just need to accept Christ and then they will magically become straight. I’ve been a Christian, I asked God to change me, and he didn’t. So why do so many Christians seem to want to condemn homosexuals and their “agenda” (the whole gay agenda thing is BS btw…My agenda is to live life and be happy.) without accepting the fact that it’s nearly impossible to change your sexual preference. Am I supposed to pretend to be attracted to women and get married—or just live my life without having any romantic relationships at all? I’m pretty happy with my life and my beliefs at this point, but I am curious as to what you would suggest a person do in that situation.

Please don’t quote the Bible to me. I want answers in your own words.
GAJulia – That is my point exactly. People say that it is a sin, and gay people should pray to change. I spent like a year of my teenage life praying to change, and I’m still the same person with the same feelings. That’s my point.
@Jolene – No, I don’t feel guilty. I am quite happy now. I was posing the question because I’m trying to pick the Christian brain and figure out how they come to these conclusions about people. It’s more of a research question than a question about myself. I just used myself as an example.

admin answers:

So in my own words, here goes > ”there is no GOD” . Just be happy.

Mary asks…

why do people claim that Hitler was a pagan, when there is so much evidence that he was christian?

There are plenty of quotes online that convey that Hitler was pagan, but there are also many that convey that he was christian (below are a host of quotes that convey he was motivated by religion) So how can you definitively state that he was definitely not Christian? The other argument made is that he was pagan and he merely used christianity to manipulate the masses, but if that was true, then wouldn’t that mean at the very least that the members and supporters of Nazis were indeed christians? Furthermore, Germany was a christian nation during the third reich, so even if you believe Hitler wasn’t a christian, how can you deny that the Nazis themselves weren’t church going citizens. Why is this argument accepted among Christians to vindicate all christians from Hitler, but Muslims on the other hand are all guilty of guilt by association?

” I am convinced that I am acting as the agent of our Creator. By fighting off the Jews, I am doing the Lord’s work.”
~ Adolf Hitler

“…God the Almighty has made our nation. By defending its existence we are defending His work…” — Adolf Hitler, as stated in a radio address on January 30, 1945

“I would like to thank Providence and the Almighty for choosing me of all people to be allowed to wage this battle for Germany.”
– Adolf Hitler

God gave the savior to the German people. We have faith, deep and unshakeable faith, that he was sent to us by God to save Germany.
–Hermann Goering, speaking of Hitler

“The Government of the Reich, who regard Christianity as the unshakable foundation of the morals and moral code of the nation, attach the greatest value to friendly relations with the Holy See and are endeavouring to develop them.”
–Adolf Hitler, in his speech to the Reichstag on 23 March 1933

“Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith …we need believing people.”
-Adolf Hitler, from a speech on April 26, 1933

“We were convinced that the people need and require this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out.”
-Adolf Hitler, from a speech on October 24, 1933

“For this, to be sure, from the child’s primer down to the last newspaper, every theater and every movie house, every advertising pillar and every billboard, must be pressed into the service of this one great mission, until the timorous prayer of our present parlor patriots: ‘Lord, make us free!’ is transformed in the brain of the smallest boy into the burning plea: ‘Almighty God, bless our arms when the time comes; be just as thou hast always been; judge now whether we be deserving of freedom; Lord, bless our battle!’”
-Adolf Hitler’s prayer, from Mein Kampf, Vol. 2, Chapter 13

Your Questions About If You Choose To Not Decide You Still Have Made A Choice Lyrics

July 20, 2012

Ruth asks…

What do these lyrics bring to you?

You can choose a ready guide
In some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide,
You still have made a choice!
You can choose from phantom fears,
and kindness that can kill,
I will choose a path that’s clear
I will choose free will!

Aside from the fact I’ve just quoted Rush, how do you feel about those lyrics? I’ll be honest, at some point in my life, that portion of the song made me choose theism, for some reason, I’ll never know.

Tell me, what are your thoughts on that portion of the song?
Vicarous cynic. Read my details. I admited I quoted Rush, therefore credit has been delivered. Thusly, there is no violation. Nor have I included the song as a free download without compensation to the artist.

admin answers:

Hi.
I like the lyrics. But they seem to be rooted in a Christian saying that has been around for years: “Not to decide is to decide.”

When you say that a portion of a song made you choose theism, it would seem that you may be swayed easily by the next good song that comes along with lyrics that may point you in a different direction.

A choice like that needs a stronger foundation than a song lyric. While I’m happy that you chose theism, vague as that may be, your lyric-based faith is likely to be easlily shaken in the midst of a trial.

Personally, I find that nature screams of a divine creator that cannot be denied by any sane person. My inner being concurs that the divine creator is indeed the God of Abraham.

I hope the foundation of your faith is a firm one, for the enemy will certainly put it to the test.

Thanks for sharing and take care!

I have a mission, if you choose to accept it?

Could somebody fetch me a picture of Brain the Dog (from the show Family Guy) dressed in a tuxedo? But that’s not all. I would also prefer that he is SMILING.

I’ve tried and failed countless times to find a picture like this, but I KNOW there’s got to be one out there. There have been several episodes of Family guy where he’s dressed in a nice suit with a smile. I would appreciate it a LOT if you helped me out.

Your mission, should you choose to accept…?

List as many examples of random acts of kindness as possible. Normally I prefer qualitative answers (ones with thought), but in this case quanitiative is all i want (eg “opening a door for another person” is all that is suffice). Best Answer will be awarded to the person who has the most sensible and original (ie not copying others) answers (HINT: if you number your answers, there’s more incentive for me to choose you!)
I’ll get you started. For bonus points you may want to provide the motivation for doing such an act.
Example:
A random act of kindness whould be to answer this question. Motivation: I get 2 points, with a possible 10 more for best answer, and I’m helping someone in need which helps them and makes me feel good about myself.

Happy sunday Christians?

Help me if you can. It’s just that this, this is not the way I’m wired. So could you please help me understand why you‘ve given in to all these reckless dark desires?

You‘re lying to yourself again; suicidal imbecile. Think about it, put it on the faultline. What’ll it take to get it through to you precious? Over this. Why do you wanna throw it away like this. Such a mess. I don’t want to watch you disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time. What’s your rush now, everyone will have his day to die.

Medicated, drama queen, picture perfect, numb belligerence, narcissistic, drama queen, craving fame and all its decadence. Lying through your teeth again. Suicidal imbecile. They were right about you. Lying to my face again. Such a mess, come to this, come to this.

If you choose to pull the trigger, should your drama prove sincere, do it somewhere far away from here.

admin answers:

Life is too precious to pull the trigger.I would not lie to you.
I don’t even know you.Fame I have none.Nor do I wish to have it.Drama I get enough from my stepfamily and some coworkers.Perfect far from it .It seems you are either having a bad day or you are just a negative person.
Medicated no.I don’t even like to take an asprin for pain.
No rush to die or even hurry it along.Just living one day at a time.
