Hello

Postby nampigai » 21 Oct 2009 13:17

I only just found this forum today - stumbling over it as I was googling for some art work (LSF's).

I'm 28, male and from Denmark. Dune fan offcourse and sci-fi-fan in general. I've read the books several (the ones by Frank Herbert, mind you - I loathe the money hungry two rapists that are raping his name), seen the movies and the series, played the games (the first Dune game for Amiga was what snarred me into the Duniverse).

I've just started on GEoD again.

nothing much left - see you around.

Hi nampigai, welcome.
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.

thank you all - I'm eating my way through some of the older posts and threads - very good reading - and a nice way to kill time when the wife is watching horses running and jumping around ;-)

Seen one or two of those type of threads before. They give me a headache as well (and I do believe in God). :)

I'm an agnostic myself - and I believe people should believe in what ever they want to believe. As long as they don't force their believes on to others.

I'll remember that, I have a Ghola in the Axlotl tank as we speak ;-)

*edit
I'll let my children now that it's the will of Shai-Hulud instead. At times I've caught my self thinking about in how many ways, you could fuck up the mind of your kids. Well it goes for some adults as well.

That, and how well we adjust to it as adults, is who we are.

When discussing religion or political idealism I normally only discuss for the sake of the discussion. I know they won't convince me, just like I (probably) can't convince them.

Do you remember the days when Emprworm was around? that was fun times ^^

Mahdi just closed the thread ;-)
