The Bible Online Launches

It's Genesis day for The Bible Online, as this browser-based real-time strategy game is now open for business. Word is: "Players can meet and play the real heroes of Genesis, Abraham and his descendants. The game is designed for users to actually experience the Book of Genesis by fulfilling quests of Abraham, which is based on the true stories of the Genesis. As a MMORTS, players are to lead their tribe, build buildings, maintain resources and engage in warfare with other tribes. However, players do not stay in one place, but will go on a quest to go to the Promised Land. Players will lead Abrahamís tribe from Ur to Haran and finally to Canaan."

That being the case, it all ends up being a matter of faith. Either faith in some sort of eternal Creator, or faith that matter itself is eternal (the big bang had to come from somewhere, where did that come from, ad nauseum).

Its only a matter of faith for people who cannot accept the fact that they do not know. They cant accept an unknown, or a mystery - they have to fill that empty space with some idea (usually anthropomorphic, or based on reference to a known quantity/entity). People who simply assume their personal ideas actually explain everything are all over the place, they arent just religious people. Plenty of them are fundamentalists in the theory of general relativity, or any other field of science.

Living with mystery is uncomfortable for most people in general, its too close to being constantly reminded of the possibility of death.

Now they will know why they are afraid of the dark. Now they will learn why they fear the night.
 
Go forth, and kill!
