How many times do you think they say the word hope in this game?

I'm going to go with fewer then or equal to the amount of times they get all preachy about God and salvation and all that hooplah.

They really shoved it all down our throats during this game. Regretting not grabbing the Japanese Voice DLC for free just to see if it's less preachy.



Aw, can't tolerate religious themed words?
It's not like they are even asking you to convert to anything, you still kill the god they talk about at the end of the game. So... what's so difficult to tolerate?
Also, it's not really one religion at all. It is not Christianity, because there's Etro, Bhunivelze, Lindzei and Pulse, and who knows what else. It's largely polytheism, therefore ruling out all monotheistic beliefs. Regarding savior? Don't the people who dislike Christianity always quickly mention that many religions have some idea of savior too? Also, the emphasis on reincarnation again rules out the monotheistic faiths who believe in heaven and hell and no reincarnation.

Must everything be completely sterile like a scientific test tube before you can stomach it?
And people accuse the religious types for being intolerant.


Number one, science is much less objective than you're giving it credit for. I know plenty of researchers, and they're petty, selfish, confirmation-seeking (rather than actually disinterested for the sake of knowledge), data-altering-for-the-sake-of-publication-to-keep-grant-money-flowing-in...so blah on that.

Number two, way to overreact? The poster you quoted didn't even mention Christianity in their complaint--you inserted Christianity just so you could defend it. Christianity also isn't the only religion that has annoying/violent evangelists, so it's entirely possible that the person you quoted had a different religion in mind when they typed their complaint. Like, say...Shingon Buddhism. Or Zoroastrianism. Or something. Take your own advice and let it be.

Bulls***. That's unequivocally bulls***.

The dumbest part about this claim is that it isn't even logically consistent. If we accept the premise that researchers are self-aggrandizing glory hounds, then that actually REMOVES the incentive to alter data, because since researchers are only interested in their own advancement, anybody who falsified their data would be immediately pounced upon by other researchers looking to make a name for themselves.
