I stand partially corrected.

Posted at 6:24 am under Uncategorized

Thanks to some kind people who commented and sent me emails. The content people create has to go through an approval process before it gets distributed to other users. So, I am happy to know that at least the E rating is true.

However, I have received many comments saying that the game is more like intelligent design than evolution and I must say I very much disagree after using Craigslist to find someone who would allow me to watch how the game is played.

Yes, the game allows the player to choose how the character looks. But the game guides you through the evolutionary theory.
If you create a character that functions badly, and you can not eat, or fight, or move fast. You have difficulty surviving. Thus you must through trial and error select a design that works. Which is the fundamental “survival of the fittest” theory behind evolution.

Additionally, if you choose an omnivore creature, and eat only meat. Guess what? You evolve into a Carnivore.

God did not create us through trial and error. He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept. Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try.

Thank you to all my supporters who have contacted me.
And for those who disagree, I give you equal voice and hope that one day you will find the truth.

    Are you trying to say that all of the creatures and plants on this planet right now are the same ones that were there at the creation of the planet?!? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Oh, thank you for that…

  2. ANdyon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:30 am 2

    Why is it so difficult to think God created the system and how it works? Then the fact that is works so well in the face of unbelievable odds is proof of His existence and his brilliance in design.

  3. MustangCSAon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:31 am 3

    LMAO Don’t people like this just piss you off. Evolution is proven. GOD is fiction. Go watch Zeitgeist.

  4. meon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:34 am 4

    are you trying to say that “survival of the fittest” does not happen? because everyday in nature it does, if any animal is unable to defend or feed itself it dies. no species can exist if it is unable to take care of itself. I don’t know the exact beliefs of a true “creationist” but what you are saying just doesn’t make sense.

    Um, so you’re saying it actually proves the theory of evolution?

    What is your point again?

  6. uhh moronson 10 Sep 2008 at 6:34 am 6

    ok if you don’t like the game then don’t buy it, its that simple. If you don’t want your kids to see it, then don’t buy them a computer, or game system, or a t.v., and don’t ever let them read anything. Just keep them locked up in your basement and don’t let them live. You say god created us by trial and error, he had to learn from his mistakes, then why is it so wrong to let your kids learn from there’s. Your so hell bent on not letting your kids partake in any thing you deem not holy, and the only real way you can do that is by either killing them before they can walk so that way they can’t learn anything, or locking them up in your house letting them do nothing but read the bible while you pray that you live longer than they do, so that way you can make sure they never do anything “unholy”. You all just need to grow up and realize its just a game, you don’t like it we get it, don’t buy it, problem solved. Now go whine about a real problem!

  7. piecaton 10 Sep 2008 at 6:35 am 7

    your still wrong you pegan

  8. Gerardon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:35 am 8

    If God made all of us perfect on the first try, where was the need for the great flood?

    So, that means if you believe what is written in if the Bible, you should believe that God made a mistake anyway, which just means that this “Trial and Error” process should be a-ok with you. Not to mention going by that logic, God nearly wiped out an entire species because He didn’t like it. And you think children playing a computer game is wrong.

  9. daviddavidsonon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:35 am 9

    you are a fucking idiot. if people or kids want to buy this game let them.

  10. thevillainon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:37 am 10

    Do you really think that God would have created beings that couldn’t evolve to better themselves?

  11. Gavon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:37 am 11

    “God did not create us”

    Perhaps you should have stopped there.

    Are you able to provide anything that even remotely resembles empiric evidence for the existence of this God thing you keep mentioning? You stated that you’re happy to debate but I’m yet to see a single attempt at substantiation for your position.

  12. Scottyon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:37 am 12

    Just a few comments:

    -How does a Christian explain dinosaurs? How does a Christian justify the overwhelming evidence that modern birds evolved from Raptors?

    -How does a Christian explain Neanderthals?

    -How does a Christian choose which genesis story to believe?

    -How does a Christian follow every law written in the bible?

    -How does a Christian explain why a Human and a Chimpanzee could produce offspring if they mated?

    -How does a Christian explain why humans have the same number of teeth as every other ape but has a smaller jaw? (that’s why humans get wisdom teeth problems)

    -Do Christians still believe that the stars in the sky are attached to a firmament?

    -How do Christians justify the existence of mammals in the oceans?

    Don’t worry, I’ll leave the questions at those — I’m sure that’s enough for you to mull over.

  13. Brandonon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:38 am 13

    So you basically just made up claims without reviewing all the facts. Keep up the credible journalism.

  14. Good Valueson 10 Sep 2008 at 6:41 am 14

    Hey Scotty,
    You will probably have to explain to him that the 1st and 2nd chapters of the book of Genesis are actually 2 different creation stories. I was surprised by how many christians don’t realize that…
    Oh, that’s right, we are talking about the ones that take the book literally….

    Dude, fuck off. Nobody gives a shit if you don’t like it. I played it, and it’s fun. I don’t look at it as an instructional video game on evolution, and even if it is, it doesn’t mean you have to be against it. Just ignore it and do something with your life.

  17. Hugon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:42 am 17

    This is the funny thing i have read in ages, it is a great pisstake on all the holy than now fundementalist
    thanks

  18. Sangueon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:45 am 18

    I am a bit saddened by the fact you saw fit to make a site such as this. Why would you want to bother with this? It’s a game, for pity’s sake. I cannot for the life of my figure out why Christians (not all, I do admit) feel that they have to make attempts to rip all the fun out of simple things that were made, shockingly, just for fun. I know fun is a difficult concept for hardcore Christians to understand (and I say this from nearly 20 years of experience with said hardcore religious types), but do you really have so little in your day to do that you have to attempt to destroy amusement for the rest of us? If you want to ‘fix’ this world, as so many of you seem to want to do, why don’t you leave off the video game industry and go do something productive, like helping the homeless or the abused and neglected?

    For people who seem so -set- on trying to ‘change the world’, I must admit you do a very very poor job of such.

    In closing, I really do have to thank you for adding to my list of reasons to avoid Christians and their, “you have to believe as we do or we will destroy your lives,” mindset.

    Bravo, just…bravo.

  19. agreeon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:45 am 19

    I totaly agree with you admin!
    I caught my son masturbating to a spore character that looked like the one in your previous post, and the proclaimed, “MOM I’m gonna evolve into one of these!” , i couldn’t believe it! First evolution is taught in schools, and its a real problem now that its in video games!!!! ….why is my keyboard so sticky

  20. Dustinon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:45 am 20

    God obviously made a mistake when creating you…evolution is real, this is a game. It’s unfortunate that religion has made you so blind.

    And for the record, i grew up in a very religious family, church every Sunday, Catholic School from Kindergarten through 4th grade…and then i finally realized what BS religion is, how it corrupts people, and ultimately can ruin peoples lives. If i remember correctly God spoke of forgiveness. So your hatred for homosexuals might as well be the sin that sends you to hell.

  21. Warshipon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:45 am 21

    Scotty, you do know Human and Chimpanzee are not able to produce offspring!??
    Its not even likely that Neanderthals and Humans could do that.

    Ever since the human race remembers itself, religion was all about MONEY (or property).
    People had to ‘please’ the god bringing it gifts or spend time (=money) praying for it.

    I got a question for you, you little paranoid, low self-esteem bastard, why would a “god” that supposedly created us all with his “black magic” because he “wanted to” did it? to get those said gifts? can’t ‘god’ create those gifts to himself because he can too?

    So here’s some crap to think about:
    Ancient people didn’t understand any of the world that surrounds them, so they seek to explain stuff their own way, and of course a “higher force” theory suits everyone – ask questions and die by others! why? their puny brain was unable to understand anything, and whenever someone tried to explain something true, he got burned by religious zealots like yourself (example: Galileo).

    So why people that thinks god exists still around? because everything paranormal is fascinating – everything that sounds ‘special’ as a part of our miserable and insignificant life (ever seen “Powers of Ten” ?). Why do you think stuff like ghosts and witches and the like is so popular? That’s right – because they are not real.

    Because you can’t take life to your own hands, you make up something called ‘god’ that will supposedly protect you if you give ‘it’ gifts/pray.

    Do the math moron and step OUT of your insecurity bubble.

  24. more LOLZon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:46 am 24

    i’m religous, i beleive in god/jesus, and im catholic too. i bought this game. You guys are what make us religous people look bad. Are you guys actually going to fight for one video game that no one will play in ten years? then what a waste of time. You can be doing many more useful stuff for everyone. And just to tell you, this game does imply that theres a god, it says that someone was guiding the creatures from the begining to now and it was you. so basically you were representing to be like a god. so the games basically mixing science with religion. don’t like it, don’t buy it.

  25. more LOLZon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:47 am 25

    Open Letter To Kansas School Board

    I am writing you with much concern after having read of your hearing to decide whether the alternative theory of Intelligent Design should be taught along with the theory of Evolution. I think we can all agree that it is important for students to hear multiple viewpoints so they can choose for themselves the theory that makes the most sense to them. I am concerned, however, that students will only hear one theory of Intelligent Design.

    Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him.

    It is for this reason that I’m writing you today, to formally request that this alternative theory be taught in your schools, along with the other two theories. In fact, I will go so far as to say, if you do not agree to do this, we will be forced to proceed with legal action. I’m sure you see where we are coming from. If the Intelligent Design theory is not based on faith, but instead another scientific theory, as is claimed, then you must also allow our theory to be taught, as it is also based on science, not on faith.

    Some find that hard to believe, so it may be helpful to tell you a little more about our beliefs. We have evidence that a Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. None of us, of course, were around to see it, but we have written accounts of it. We have several lengthy volumes explaining all details of His power. Also, you may be surprised to hear that there are over 10 million of us, and growing. We tend to be very secretive, as many people claim our beliefs are not substantiated by observable evidence. What these people don’t understand is that He built the world to make us think the earth is older than it really is. For example, a scientist may perform a carbon-dating process on an artifact. He finds that approximately 75% of the Carbon-14 has decayed by electron emission to Nitrogen-14, and infers that this artifact is approximately 10,000 years old, as the half-life of Carbon-14 appears to be 5,730 years. But what our scientist does not realize is that every time he makes a measurement, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is there changing the results with His Noodly Appendage. We have numerous texts that describe in detail how this can be possible and the reasons why He does this. He is of course invisible and can pass through normal matter with ease.

    I’m sure you now realize how important it is that your students are taught this alternate theory. It is absolutely imperative that they realize that observable evidence is at the discretion of a Flying Spaghetti Monster. Furthermore, it is disrespectful to teach our beliefs without wearing His chosen outfit, which of course is full pirate regalia. I cannot stress the importance of this enough, and unfortunately cannot describe in detail why this must be done as I fear this letter is already becoming too long. The concise explanation is that He becomes angry if we don’t.

    You may be interested to know that global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of Pirates since the 1800s. For your interest, I have included a graph of the approximate number of pirates versus the average global temperature over the last 200 years. As you can see, there is a statistically significant inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature.

    In conclusion, thank you for taking the time to hear our views and beliefs. I hope I was able to convey the importance of teaching this theory to your students. We will of course be able to train the teachers in this alternate theory. I am eagerly awaiting your response, and hope dearly that no legal action will need to be taken. I think we can all look forward to the time when these three theories are given equal time in our science classrooms across the country, and eventually the world; One third time for Intelligent Design, one third time for Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, and one third time for logical conjecture based on overwhelming observable evidence.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Bobby Henderson, concerned citizen.

    P.S. I have included an artistic drawing of Him creating a mountain, trees, and a midget. Remember, we are all His creatures.

    hey man, just started looking your site and this seems like as good a place to ask this as any.

    I notice you had a number of funny spor creations on your site. As long as your posting them, could you get the one where the creatures all look like the twin towers (compleat with airplanes)? If you just had more picks like that and less useless text that no-one ever realy ready anyways, you may just have yourself quite a nice little spore fansite.

    K? Thnx.

  34. Oh Wowon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:50 am 34

    Are you seriously this much of an ignorant Christfag that you protest a game on some pointless blog just to hear the resounding echo of no one giving a fuck? Please commit suicide and join whatever deity you want to suck off And make this world a better place to live.

  35. DJon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:50 am 35

    You humans are simply pathetic. What happen to your stupid religous tolerance its people like you that make other christians look bad. But don’t get the wrong idea I’m no christian infact I would rather kill your god but hey thats how I feel if you don’t like it cry and complain like the little bugs you are.
    You say the game corrupts children no your wrong because if you raised them right you would’nt see them imitating things they see in a game. It is 10X better to teach your kids about life then to hide stuff from them maybe then they will now whats wrong and right. So, you see its not a games fault, its not a movies fault its MAJORILY your fault, stop being such ignorant fools and realize that you effect how your child grows.
    And one more thing stop shoving your dry ass religion onto other people who don’t really care about it. Just because your religion says one thing doesn’t make everything else wrong. Just be happy that if your religion turns out to be real you will end up in heaven and all the “others” will be hell bound.
    Yes, I know I’m going to hell and I’m just awaiting my trip.

  36. Justinon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:51 am 36

    So essentially you’re complaining about children being indoctrinated into a certain ideology, that of evolution? What hypocrisy! You claim this as evil simply because it is supported by evidence as opposed to some magical book which is always right. Grow up and realise that you trying desperately not to allow your children to learn about something which they might start to believe, when you yourself want to keep them stamped with your own foolish beliefs.

  37. strageron 10 Sep 2008 at 6:51 am 37

    So throughout your life all the decicions you have made were perfect? You didn’t do anything wrong to learn from those mistakes and adjust your actions/life accordingly? Hmm…

    (Maybe you’re God? If so, God’s pretty fucking stupid.)

  38. Bon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:51 am 38

    Why couldn’t God have simply put the first life form on earth and let it evolve?

    Ahhh and then I remember. Apparently humans were created in Gods own imagine and we’re super special.

    Pro tip: Humans aren’t as special as you fundi Christians would like to believe.

    Also for all intents and purposes evolution is fact.

  40. Knucklesdudeon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:53 am 40

    You have a blatantly large misunderstanding of evolution by natural selection. Evolution is not a theory of chance, it is the polar opposite. Genes selfishly drive themselves to survive. Nature selects the favored genes and ones that are unfavored don’t get passed on.

  41. aquaon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:53 am 41

    People like you piss me off so much.

    Okay look, I can understand that you don’t like it when people don’t believe in your beliefs but don’t you realize how hypocritical you are sounding?Just because I don’t believe in creationism doesn’t make me wrong, and in my eyes, you’re wrong, but I’m not going to make a huge deal about it and say that you are wrong for such and such reasons, that’s childish and God obviously hasn’t allowed you to grow up past you’re first baby steps.

    Just because a book says that God made us, doesn’t make it so. Just like a how a book says that Evolution is real, doesn’t make it so. It’s all about what we believe, and saying that another person is wrong based upon there beliefs is just downright stupid.

    The worst thing about arguing with a creationist is that they have no argument. I get a good laugh from reading creationist bull shit but there’s no pleasure to be had shitting on someones beliefs and endlessly arguing about god or no god. In the end we’re dust and its not going to matter either way. Anyway, I’m off to buy Spore and make disgusting penis monsters!

  46. Kevinon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:55 am 46

    My ancestors used to fight with swords, but one day they evolved to fight with submachine guns. I think this was a large improvement. And have you ever played Super Mario Brothers? I hate that game because it teaches children that people wearing mushroom hats are your friends.

    If you didn’t attack the Episcopal Church for not hating homosexuals in another post, I’d swear this website of yours was satirical.

  47. Agustana lolon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:55 am 47

    They don’t. Christianity being a “feel good” religion, the Christians only pick the laws they’re most comfortable with, like Jesus suggested.

  52. Jon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:57 am 52

    I think sites like this are a huge waste of time. It’s just a VIDEO GAME. Why do people like you have to make things more complicated than they really are? It’s like that one woman who complained about Resident Evil 5 being racist because you play a white man whom goes around killing black people, totally neglecting to mention the actual plot of the game. People like you complicate issues and mold them to your liking so you have something to complain about, when in the end it solves nothing. It doesn’t matter what you believe in, if you believe in anything at all. Bottom line is it’s just a video game. It’s up to the parent on how they want to raise their children, not you and not the government. Unfortunately, a lot of parents fail at their job; too many rely on entertainment such as video games and television to babysit their kids.

    argument over.

  55. DynamicUnoon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:58 am 55

    You stated earlier that you’d welcome a debate. I will remain polite if you will. :) I mean the following as serious questions and I look forward to serious answers – you clearly care passionately about this topic and I’d like to understand that and help you to understand our opposing view. I believe we can achieve this.

    Your problem with the game is that it teaches evolution. Fair enough – you don’t believe in evolution. Can you tell me why?

    Can you also tell me why it is that you have a problem with EA making this game? EA is in no way a religious organization – it is instead a profit-making business with no religious goals. How does Spore violate this ethic, and what right do you have to tell them to stop?

    Finally, you say: “God did not create us through trial and error. He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept. Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try.” When you say that God made each of his concepts perfect on the first try, you are making certain assumptions that I am going to ask you to please back up. First, you are assuming that you have a complete and thorough understanding of exactly what happened in the course of creation and in God’s mind at the time – this seems fairly arrogant to my mind, for I know that I can in no way equal the mind of God. Second, you are assuming that God’s concepts have never changed – for if He made them perfect on the first try, then any deviation from that would be less than perfect. Do you truly believe that the world has in no way changed – ever?

    I am genuinely interested in your answers and am also more than happy to answer any questions you may have of your own. I consider myself a faithful Christian and do not see a contradiction between my faith and an awareness of the workings of nature.

  56. You're an idioton 10 Sep 2008 at 6:58 am 56

    You, sir, are an idiot. You’re petitioning against a computer game because you find it offensive against our religion? You’re one of the most closed minded, over protective people I’ve ever seen, and I gather this from your website. The fact that you have to relate everything to religion makes me question the logic behind what you type, and I think that you need to stop being so over protective in terms of what you believe in. You trying to stop everyone from playing a game based on evolution and intelligent design tells me you can’t tell the difference between religion and fucking video games, come on you moron. Stop trying to be all Mr. Official, and try to understand that no one cares, and that your angry, moronic rants aren’t going to change anyone’s view on this.

  57. Axlon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:58 am 57

    FYI, admin, the game tells you you need a mouth to eat, and something to attack with, etc. It doesn’t just send you on your way, hoping you get it right.

    And guess what? The whole “evolving into a carnivore” thing you mentioned? It’s based on /proven, scientific facts/. You may have your faith in your religion, but at least some of us know for certain that what we believe in is real. I’d rather not believe that my being is modeled after some other being that supposedly made everything and everyone. And for that matter, how did God come to be? (I’m sure the Bible addresses that at some point, so maybe those familiar with the Bible could enlighten me as to what it says about that particular question)

    Oh yeah, each of his concepts were absolutely perfect. So perfect that the first two humans, Adam and Eve, he ever created fell prey to the wit of a snake and were banished from God’s perfect garden. And two of the children of said humans, Cain and Abel, were so perfect that one decided to kill the other. Yeah, his concepts and creations are absolutely fantastic. >_>

    Oh, and one more thing. The truth is whatever we make of it all. If we choose to believe something different from what you believe, then that is our truth. Your own version of the truth is not a universally accepted truth, so do not treat it as such.

    Dude, I fucking love this game. Seriously, and by the way. My dad made loads of mistakes on the way. Did you know that men actually used to walk on rams legs?, yea, that sucked so he went back to the drawing board on that one. Also, you just sound stupid, ranting on like that.

  59. Fickleon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:59 am 59

    Wow, this guy has gotten so many bad comments from all his articles. There are like no supporters at all. By the way, I found this from Kotaku, anyone else?. I think that this guy should go do drugs and see the world for what it is or something. God does not exist, this goes for christians and muslims too. Praying should be illeagal, religion is a waste of life. Let me tell you this, it’s the only life there is since there can’t be an afterlife.

  61. Peteron 10 Sep 2008 at 7:00 am 61

    I think this whole website is a troll. Assuming that hundreds of people have actually posted comments attacking the admin posts on this site, I have to ask myself: “Are gamers really this gullible?” Of course, we all have become credulous to some degree because of current politics (I once had difficulty believing Bush authorized torture), but we all know that fundies don’t allow free speech. If admin was a real fundie he would heavily moderate the comments.

  62. Sanberton 10 Sep 2008 at 7:00 am 62

    I don’t know if anyone has told you yet, but SPORE is just a game.

    I don’t understand why so many religious groups are going nuts over this simple game.

    Why is it so hard for people to understand that if you don’t like something, don’t play it. No one is forcing you to play it. It’s not going to hurt you. All you’re doing by complaining about it is giving it more attention, and making yourself look like a attention seeker.

  65. JPon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:01 am 65

    What’s really funny, yet disgusting that christians overlook, is the fact that all humans supposedly descended from Adam and Eve, and that some point in time, someone committed incest in order to procreate be it Cain and his mother Eve, or Cain and a sister, or another son and daughter that Adam had fathered with Eve later on down the road. You really teach your children this? Eeew!

    So you want to tell us that survival of the fittest expands on the theory of evolution, and should be disregarded? Are you nuts? Survival of the fittest happens on this planet every single day whether it be an animal, a human, or a corporation. If you don’t study in school, you end up flipping burgers at McDonald’s while your friends that worked hard on their education become doctors. It’s not theory of evolution, it’s cold hard fact.

    You want me to believe that a cosmic Jewish zombie who was his own father can make me live forever if I symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him I accept him as my master, so he can remove an evil force from my soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree… no thanks, I’ll just play Spore.

  66. dude...on 10 Sep 2008 at 7:01 am 66

    dude, its a game

    chillax

    the only thing wrong with it is its morbidly offensive DRM, otherwise its a novel idea of a game
    also, the word game is a big qualifier, its not a petition to ban the idea alltogther, in fact, evolution seems far more plausible

  67. Justinon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:01 am 67

    To Peter: You’re probably right, but it’s always fun to have someone to rage at.

  68. A Random Gameron 10 Sep 2008 at 7:01 am 68

    While Spore may have gotten inspiration from the theory of evolution, it is by no means an accurate depiction of it. Far from it actually. In reality, I would say Spore utilizes concepts from both ID and evolution. And even the evolution side of things is incredibly simplistic, and for the most part, not a tool for education on the subject.
    As for “evolution propaganda”, Maxis is just a game developer and their only “agenda” is to make good, fun games. There is no atheist or evolutionist conspiracy going on here. Just a fun game.
    Just a quick note about the omnivore/herbivore/carnivore part. The game will label you as “herbivore/social”, “omnivore/industrial”, and “carnivore/predator” depending on your actions in the game, but the actual characteristics of the creature (carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore among other things) are always decided by the parts you used for your creature. Only certain mouths are omnivores, as well as herbivore and carnivore, and while the game may label your creature as predator, it can still be an omnivore (or even an herbivore).
    And finally, Maxis and EA cannot be held responsible for content they did not create. Those inappropriate creatures may appear in the game, but they are made by other players, and can be banned from your copy of the game.

  72. Dr_Tesseracton 10 Sep 2008 at 7:02 am 72

    Wow. I cannot believe the ignorance so prevalent within this webpage. You are in the same league of people that put Astronomers on house arrest in ancient Greece. The sooner you accept natural selection, the better off you will be. I’m a college freshman, and even taking an elementary class in Biology, I could tell you what a fucking moron you are. Accept the fact that there is no god, and you will be better off in the 21st century, or build yourself a time machine ( unless christians dont believe in the theory of relativity either ) and go back to medieval times and hunt some witches.

    You know the scientific community did not make up evolution to turn your kids gay, it just makes sense just like you drinking some cyanide kool aid. fuck off ignorant christian trash.

  73. Fickleon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:02 am 73

    I’d also like to wish you luck with your ‘War’ on EA. This game is going to sell a fuck ton so good luck with that.

  74. Timon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:04 am 74

    your understanding of evolution is poor. The very fact that you chose anything about your creature makes it not evolution. Survival of the fittest is only a part of evolutionary theory. The other part is that random mutations happen from time to time over the course of a life. Any one of these random mutations can be passed down to a child and could be anything from a 6th finger (polydactylism) to having no wisdom teeth. Over time if a trait is both dominate genitally and a selective advantage (it is something people want in a mate) it can become the norm and the recessive trait can leave the gene pool. The fact that you guide the evolution of the creature making intelligent decisions about its destiny does in fact make it an intellegent design game.

    If this is a real website I see 2 things here. First it’s blatantly obvious you do like like EA. Every post you have is a crack at them.

    But to sit here are try to push your know it all values on people because you don’t like the fact there is a game people can create any creature they want.
    Does this game call you god? Does this game at any point try to force beliefs down your throat as you are trying to do?
    Your complaining that its offensive because it shows a form of evolution and not intelligent design, So god couldn’t have been sitting there saying “Hmm, I wonder what I want my latest creation to look like”…. No, you think he just pointed his magical finger and poof there was a person.

    Its just beyond me at how hypocritical some of you “Christians” can be about everything. You say don’t judge people, yet that’s all you do. You judge everyone if they don’t see things as you do. You judge them if they don’t act a certain way. You have your own religions so backwards that it doesn’t even make any sense anymore.

    The best part about it is,
    If all people came from adam and eve and not through evolution, that would mean that all people to this date are from some sort of inbreeding. Billions of people all starting from the same stock become stagnant. I guess that would explain a lot with what is wrong with people today.
    But you holier then thou christians base your entire lives around a book that was written thousands of years ago and rewritten by arrogant male kings throughout those years.
    Lets see…… Mormons and Scientologists also base their religions on book. Mormans were told by a book that jesus christ was born in america, and scientologists believe they are waiting for the mothership.
    But I guess yours is ok because you say so right?

    If there is a god, do you believe that somewhere in the bible its hidden that say “waste the time using my name to judge and belittle video games. Blame everything on the video games”
    It just pains me to see there are people so naive and simple minded that they cant even think for themselves.
    Also, if god created everyone in his own image as you believe, and he is supposed to be this great super intelligent being, please explain why the human race is as dumb, judgmental, arrogant and destructive? is that what he wanted?

    The point in all this is this is a video game. It gives you the choice if you want to buy it, and you have the choice if you want to play it. Noone is forcing you. And the fact that you have put so much time into complaining about a video game shows that you must have nothing better to do with your time.
    People being offended by a video game about prehistoric type creatures shows that because they think it is a stab at them or their religion they can rightfully complain. But to think every little thing that comes out like this is a stab at you shows how arrogant you actually are.

  78. Troyon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:06 am 78

    You’re not Christians, you’re idiots.

    If your logic is so damn flawed; with logic like yours, games like Halo are bad too. Any science fiction game or magic game is really about the same on the “Sin Scale” as Spore would be… I’m not going to list all the games I could. So many movies and games are similar to Spore. If you are such an expert about this game, then how come you seam to miss the entire point of it? Have you ever had fun in your life? You know Jesus wants you to live your life, not whine about petty things like a game. You know how much difference you make? You’re noting. You’re dirt; you are nothing more than gum on the bottom of the game company’s shoes, and they probably wont even hear about you and if they do, it’ll be through the hype you’re making about this.

    I think you need to take the time and get the penis in your ear, pulled out of your brain, so maybe your cerebellum can start sending waves to other parts of your body; your head seams to be messed up so why not give your legs a chance?

    I can prove you are sinning right now. Wearing any cotton? You’re a sinner according to the New Testament.

    When was the last time you read the Bible, let alone a book about evolution? You come to conclusions too fast, and don’t even take time to realize that maybe even God was behind evolution?

    You just spent time and money on a website about something any Christian would brush off when, in reality, you could have sent and used that time and money for rebuilding churches in Lithuania, helping kids in Africa, helping build houses in ghettos, reach out to those who haven’t heard the word of God. It’s people like you that make Christianity unappealing. You make me sick.

    Next time you go to Church, how about you actually listen to the Pastor, and understand the religion you are trying to serve. Dickwad. Or as those in the Bible would say “Kennite.”

    So what are you going to do with the thousands of dollars you made making this website and attracting all this free traffic. I wish I had your idea.

    With all the adds, you must have made a load of money so far. And since spore is a very popular game, you are sure to attract a lot of attention and web traffic.

    Congratulations. I’m just dissapointed I didn’t think of this idea sooner.

    I how sad is your life that a video game threatens what you believe in, if you truly had faith in god then this would be like water off a ducks back, grow up learn to relax and maybe go jerk off you need it.

  82. Joshua Con 10 Sep 2008 at 7:09 am 82

    I myself am a Christian. I am also a gamer who has played a number of games from a number of different genres for quite some time. In a sense, I see things from both sides of the fence (OK, truth be told, there are Christian gamers out there as well). I hope to offer my own constructive criticism as well as support about the views expressed on this site.

    I believe without a doubt that in six days, God had created the earth, the plants, the seas, the mountains and everything around, between, above and below. He also created man, and from man, created woman. These are truths I hold firmly according to my own beliefs, even if other individuals see this as nothing more than a pie-in-the-sky pipe dream. Although their views are different than my own, I always welcome a discussion of these matters, even if the views are different.

    With that out of the way, let’s talk about Spore. From my standpoint, I see Spore as a game, pure and simple. What messages it implies depends on who chooses to play it, see the videos and so forth. For me, it’s an interesting experiment of sorts concerning human nature and creativity.

    Let’s use Play-Doh as an example here. Kid A with a lump of it chooses to make a giraffe. Kid B, on the other hand, chooses to make a kimodo dragon (a bit of a stretch maybe, but hey, they got Animal Planet these days!). It’s still the same batch of Play-Doh, but through their nature, they choose to make different creatures and share them. And sometimes get into to talks about which one can win in a fight (I say giraffe, since no one expects it!).

    Spore uses a similar concept of sorts, taking this digitized Play-Doh and allows the users to create their own animals. Some would venture this as a God-game; I see it as a lump of Play-Doh. Call me simplistic, but that’s what I see. I’m not taking away my own beliefs in creationism because I know this is not real.

    Of course, through human nature, people tend to abuse their creativity to hurt or offend others. I’m going to go on a realistic limb to say that everyone, no matter how sensitive or insensitive you are, is going to be hurt or offended by some measure. For a guy whose played video games for a long time, I’ve played my share of different tastes from the harmless of puzzle games to the rampant violence of sandbox and shooters where the object is to maim or kill your opponents in accordance with your objectives. I’ve seen a number of different ways various objects are portrayed through popular gaming and such. Some of it offended me and disgusted me, some I’ve seen before but don’t particularly care for it, and the rest just doesn’t faze me.

    This whole “Sporn” mess with users try to get a rise out of people (particularly the sensitive types). By creating critters in a number of sexual natures, it caused a massive outcry for those who would see this sort of game as the devil’s playground. Going back to the Play-doh analogy, I really don’t see this as any different than making a space creature with a giant “third leg” with this clay. Sure, you may get a few laughs and such, but ultimately, to some, such a thing can be purely offensive and can spark an outcry.

    And so long as such outcries exist, the creators of such things will either learn the error of their ways and create things more socially or morally acceptable or just say “To hell with it!” and create more space creatures with third legs. Just because people can creature such things out of Play-doh or in games like Spore doesn’t always mean it would be generally acceptable to the general populace, whether they like it or not. It’s a fact of life in this imperfect world.

    While I personally am not an advocate of the evolution theory myself, I still look at it as another viewpoint, even if it may be contrary to my own belief in creationism. But when it comes to a game of Spore, maybe I look at it too simply. Hey, with Simcity, I enjoyed making cities, cutting or raising taxes and building new shopping malls and such. If I don’t like it, a few UFOs will do wonders to cause a little chaos and start fresh. Would I do that in real life? Not at all. Do I see myself as having a living god wielding divine powers? Certainly not. I’m just a guy at a computer pressing the “Blow Stuff Up” button. Same with Spore, really. If I don’t like my critter, I can always make another to suit my desires, like I would with Play-doh.

    But alas, this is an argument that will go back and forth for a long time. Some will se this as Will Wright’s greatest game. Some others will see this as a spawn of a digital devil. I still see this as Play-doh, but that’s just the kid in me. :-)

    Hello,
    I’m not posting here to bash you or your beliefs. But do you honesly believe you have a right to tell EA what games they are and are not allowed to produce? I’ve read very little of your blog but from what I have read, you are being very unfair in the way you bring across your arguments.

    You have a full right to not play or buy the game yourself. You also have the right to stop your children from playing. But you really have no right telling EA that they are evil because they produced it. Honestly, don’t you have something better to do? I find people who usually stir up a fuss about nothing like this are usually just bored looking for some exitement.

    See sence.

    because i think you have the right to believe what you want to without being persecuted, but you sir have gone to far.
    you are trying to stop this game because of what it ‘teaches’ but what if they made one on intelligent design?
    would we have the right to start trying to destroy the game because of what it teaches?
    no, they are free to express what they want to, so stop your bitching, its a game, if you dont like it, dont fucking buy it.

    First of all, if you don’t believe in evolution how are you so sure that its principles are incorporated in this game as it is clear you don’t understand them. Trust me, “survival of the fittest” is not the fundamental theory behind of evolution and most biologists consider that phrase an inaccurate description of natural selection. It’s a little more complex than that but how would you know.

    How can you understand this game if you never played it. You just picked up a few details here and there and saw a guy play for a while. I wouldn’t have a full understanding of the bible if I read about it on Wikipedia or saw some guy talk about it for a few minutes. If you play games then you know there is a big difference between playing a game and watching a few minutes of it. Don’t judge a book (or game) on its cover. I doubt that the developers of the game wanted to brainwash people. I bet they just wanted to make a fun game and make some money. PLAY the game first then make an informed decision and stop trying to validate ideas you know nothing about.

  92. LaVeyon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:15 am 92

    The thing that is most embarrassing about this website is the fact that if you(Admin) care about the things that are destroying Christianity, you would NOT be creating a fucking pathetic website about a video game that absolutely DOES NOT care at all about religion nor does it teach any kind of evolutionary aspects seriously. This game is A GIFT from God because he wants you to exercise the beauty of your mind rather than close it.

    This ‘survival of the fittest’ is Social Darwinism, not the theory of evolution. It’s actually a common misconception, one that was linked to evolution by doubters. I know you don’t agree with evolution, but If you truly disagree with something, learn about it before you fire up a life’s crusade against it.

    Okay, your anger is a little ill-informed.
    YES Sproe revolves around Evolution. But it deals with it in other galaxies. The human race, and thus God, is not mentioned. So, it’s expressing the thoery, but not in our universe.
    And yes, you CAN create pornographic beings. However, you can do the same with any game with any sort of level editior, creature creator, or any other user-made-content. EA has even taken action against penis monsters, banning them from their online collections of monsters. Plus, free speach means the right to create things of a pornographic nature. To speak against this would be speaking against one of the fundmentals of the constitution.

I guess you don’t believe the dinosaurs existed? I’m all about respecting beliefs, I’m a baptized christian myself (currently agnostic) but don’t go preaching to people trying to spread the word of God and his “perfect design” thinking you know what the hell your talking about. Whoever supports you I seriously feel bad for, because their probably not pro-choice, they probably don’t believe in stem cell research and they probably will vote for John Mccain. If you can answer back to me and give me one logical non-biased argument using science to your advantage I’m converted. Gods existential existence is not outside scientists abilities to truly weigh in.

    I don’t think you understand the concept of a game.

    A game should be both fun and challenging. Sure it’s fun to make a critter in this game. If you have not tried it yourself the creature creator section of the game is free. If at the beginning of the game you were presented with a perfect creature with no flaws and a predetermined fate, there would be no challenge.

    I consider myself open-minded, if you want to make a game that is especially created based on the creationist point of view, go right ahead. Though i will tell you, it probably won’t be any fun.

    Also, gay bashing? Really?

  107. OHGODLOLon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:27 am 107

    AHAH OH WOW.

    this site made my last day, since LHC is firing down the planet.

    anyway, if you think god created us without an “adaption engine” or some chemical mechanism to try and adapt, then you’re a complete faggot.

    the game, however, is wide-minded in the late “space part”, only bad thing to report: the repetitive use of colonies and the damn pirates, attacking every 3 minutes -.-

    So you believe in a flying spaghetti monster? Interesting…..

    I’d rather believe in something science has prooven like evolution, but to each his own.

  110. yeah.... noon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:29 am 110

    You can hardly say that evolution is a failing theory. You can’t really even say it is a theory. Evolution, survival of the fittest, etc. can all be viewed and proven. The game is based loosely around a proven fact: that creatures advance. They adapt to deal with changes in their environment. Animals mutate, favorable mutations allow the animal to breed more, increasing the mutation and low and behold an animal has evolved. Saying evolution doesn’t happen is akin to denying that gravity is real. You can belive whatever you want but when you jump you still eventually come back down.

    (All of the following paragraph is assuming God exists. I’m not saying there is, I’m not saying there isn’t, the next paragraph is simply under the assumption that there is.)

    EA is not stomping on your beliefs (and neither am I). I am a Christian as well however I cannot deny a proven fact. Just because God created something by no means means it is perfect. Species have been going extinct for millions of years (fossils as well as written records prove this) meaning that they were unable to survive an as such imperfect. Creation states we were created in Gods image, not as God. We have free will to do as we please. God guides us, not controls us. The 10 commandments are much easier to ignore then they are to follow. Even the first Humans were unable to follow God’s single order. You say we are perfect, created in Gods image, however you also say “But if you ever felt like you had too much power, God would come in with a tornado or an earthquake and put you back in place.”. We are not perfect. We are not God, neither are any of his other creations.

    Above all else you have to realize: Spore is a game. Meant for entertainment. It’s not meant to make us rise against the church, to deny God or to believe in evolution (although as i said it’s not really an option to believe in a proven fact), it’s meant to entertain us. Your hypocrisy, ignorance and self righteous give all of those with faith a bad name.

    I believe in something different. In your eyes I’m wrong. In my eyes you’re wrong. Therefore your opinion carries a heavier weight.

    Believe what you want to, that is what our country was founded on. To not be persecuted if you believe in something. Acting on your opinion to force others to not be apart of your religion is persecution to its fullest meaning. I believe in your complete right to think this game is terrible, and you and your friends can sit around and find ways to raise your children according to that. But that isn’t what you’re doing. You’re trying to raise awareness of this game and get it taken off the market.

    This is the equivalent of me getting a lot of people together, trying to get all Christian songs banned from the air because of its message. I bet that sounds horrible and you couldn’t ever imagine a thing like that. That’s right, because it’s WRONG. Play as many Christian songs as you want.

    Don’t mess with my right and everyone else’s to free speech.

    “God did not create us through trial and error. He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept. Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try.”

    Let me get this straight: Miscarriages; breech positions requiring surgical intervention in the form of Caesarean sections lest both mother and child die; toddlers running high fevers because their baby teeth are literally cutting through their gums; children being susceptible to myriad illnesses, both psychological and physical; physically debilitating and incapacitating deformities, are all the hallmarks of perfect design?

    Put another way: are you actually suggesting that god’s idea of perfection is to bestow upon us the dubious honor of actually having to suffer through aforementioned ordeals?

    Funny, I would’ve though this whole time that if we were so perfect in design I wouldn’t have to stay up at night placing suppositories up my 10-month-old son’s rectum to lower his fever because god saw it fittingly “perfect” that my son should have to put up with teething pains. I would’ve thought that a much better design would have been for the teeth to appear without tearing his gums apart. I guess this is what people mean by “no pain, no gain”…

    But who am I to say otherwise? Surely god is so perfect that he views pain as part of perfection. Because we all suffer so much completely unnecessary pain thanks to his magnanimous, unyielding love towards us – that, and his perfect designs.

    “OH MY FUCKING GOD. WHY DO I HAVE TO EVOLVE IN A FUCKING CARNIVORE GOD WHY ME WHY ME. FUCK THIS GAME!! ”

    “The real reason why I am trolling a perfectly fine game, is because i recently lost my penis in my floppy drive while looking at furry pokemon porn. This great loss has made me take my anger out not only on my son (who sucks like 9000 dicks a day) but the awesomely win game Spore.”

    Yeah no. Suck my cock, you motherfucking cocksucker. Games are meant to be fun, not realistic or some shit.

    Comments like Page 6, Number 11, do nothing to support the game, the Evolutionist theory or the argument that the Admin is in any way wrong.

    It’s comments like the one above that the Admin will drawn upon to support his or her point. Not others which may hold reasonable conjecture. It’s called selective reasoning.

    The above comment doesn’t help. But, then, will anything? Really, commenting against the views of this site is like pissing in the wind. They serve no purpose, certainly not to create rational debate. More to fuel the fire of the Admin’s ill-conceived mission.

    Try to remember, everyone, that antispore.com does not reflect the entire Christian faith, all Creationists or religion in general. It’s only one person’s views displayed on a worldwide forum.

    I just wanted to say, I’m not atheist, but I believe a more loose translation of the bible. I believe in evolution, and in fact, if you read ALL THE EVIDENCE only a fool would not believe in evolution. I also believe though, that if science and religion are to ever co-exist or exist peacefully that they need to work on incorporating religion and science more. The bible wasn’t written out all at once, tons if it is bound to be altered and mistranslated. It said God created life, never how. Perhaps what seemed like seconds to him was a chain reaction sparking evolution for billions of years resulting in the final image he wanted. Do you dispute how the earth was created? and yet God said he made it himself. it took tons of time to form, and if you break it down into days, I’m sure you could account for major changes on earth with each day of the genesis.

    Well, well. This post is obviously a misunderstanding right?. Because your not stupid, or are you?. Evolution is real because this game is about probably 100% correct. I love the whole idea of “Spore”. It was brilliant, but according to some post’s ive seen that everyone here is right. Religion has made you so blind that you can’t even see the whole truth. The only thing i believe in is Evolution, Reincarnation, and maybe a little of God. Also behind the omnivore is mostly true because people who eat just only don’t eat meat can’t even eat it because they’ll just get sick after just one big, medium, or even a small bite.

    Who cares what a videogame creator pictures as an imaginary world? If you want to believe God created everything in six days, fine with me. However, I don’t know why you make a website to go against a videogame that presents a different way for things to work.

    Does Spore ever say that the way these creatures evolve is similar to the way? Seems to me that you are simply terribly afraid of the word “evolution” being used even as an imaginary, fantastic concept.

    As an atheist, i find this hilarious. As if we needed more proof that fundamentalists of any religion have a serious intelligence deficiency. Hmm… Let’s unconditionally believe everything from a very old book written by many people over thousands of years, with much of it created for political purposes, instead of some real proven science! Yay!

    Also, evolution is just a theory, it’s true… kind of like gravity.

    Finally, is this all you do with your time? Get enraged about a game which doesn’t even really affect you and make a website dedicated to it? You need to get laid, man….

    Admin guy is a moron. God doesn’t exist. Interesting how the only proof of him is in a book that says, ‘this book is true’. How awesome. What if I scribble in a copy of Da Vinci Code ‘this book is totally fact’. Does that make it so? Science has proven time and again a lot of the mysteries in the universe. In due time, the Big Bang will be fully understood as well.

    Spineless weak people use god as a crutch for their own insecurities and needing a parent figure for their life. I’d be nice and ask you to do some independent reading, but most likely you’re a stubborn mule and will always be a fucking retard.

  138. Marcuson 10 Sep 2008 at 7:54 am 138

    The fact is, you can’t prove god exists. The argument goes something like this:

    Act 1
    I have a baseball.
    Prove it.
    Here it is – (shows baseball).

    Act 2
    I have a baseball.
    Prove it.
    Prove I don’t have a baseball.

    So you see, in Act 1, it can clearly be proven that there is something, whereas in Act 2, you have to rely on faith, not proof. Yes, you may pray for my soul (Prove I don’t have a soul… lol) for my lack of faith, but show me any proof at all that God in his omnipotence exists, and I’ll be in church on Sunday.

    I am not here to bash your beliefs, I left my E-mail if you wanted to give me a reply. But I wanted to know, where you get off at this? In my opinion you flew off the gun too fast to judge Spore as it’s own. You took it as it if was made just to slap God in the face.

    If you believe that evolution is a theory, (and thats fine by me if you do.) but why not leave the game alone. To you the game is just a work of fiction then right? I may be a man of science and not one of religion, but you’re too quick to judge, and for that, you fail to have a solid opinion on this game. Video Games are not meant to hurt people or religions. They’re meant for fun, which is exactly what you said this game did to you. Well I must say you’re doing the opposite. Leave the game alone. There are more appropriate areas to protest than a newly-released game, for years in the making.

    “He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept. Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try.”

    Actually according to evolution, no creature is considered a mistake.
    Nor is each creature a step leading to a final concept.
    Each creature is considered perfect on the first try.

    You misunderstand evolution theory, methinks….

  147. Logical Responseon 10 Sep 2008 at 8:02 am 147

    You know you can not buy the game and not try to influence everyone that may be interested in the game. Everybody doesnt believe in god, let alone YOUR god.

  148. Adult Gameron 10 Sep 2008 at 8:03 am 148

    First off, I would like to commend you for standing up for your ideals and beliefs. However, I do feel that I need to point out a few things, out of my own ideals.

    First off, the idea of Spore is to be a creative videogame, one fueled almost entirely by the market audience. In this, all mature rated content that you have provided on the site, was made by a gamer that had his mind in the gutter. Personally, I see no reason to blame Will Wright for those creations.

    Second off, while we are all entitled to our beliefs, (Meaning I reject Creationism of my own ideals, but don’t call it impossible, just as I believe you have the right to say evolution is wrong, but would rather you not reject it entirely) this is of course the game itself that abides by a law of evolution. This in no way suggests that the same theory applies to real life.

    Thirdly, I know quite a few people that actually suggest that both exist, that God created life, while allowing Earth’s inhabitants to support themselves and create their own future through evolution. In this both parties can be correct.

    Lastly, what someone plays in a game can be different from how they feel in real life, for example gamers of the popular game “Black & White” by Lionhead Studios, who may still reject the idea of god in real life while enjoying the experience of being one within the game, a similar ideal here where you control evolution and may yet still only believe in Creationism.

    While I agree that is it disturbing that people will create creatures to resemble body parts not intended to be seen by younger audience, I hope that the game is successful as an enjoyable experience, and I’m sure in due time that the concerns over these creatures will be taken care of when possible.

    You honestly think a blog will stop a giant like EA? I am a catholic and truly embrace this game. Did you not forget the part of the bible that said “Do not judge others”? And, there’s this thing called seperation of Church and State.

    But beside that….Your blog does nothing to EA.
    I bet their employee’s are laughing at you right now as they rake in enormous amount of profits.

    But, at least you’re doing this in a polite manner. I applaud you on that.

    The catch to your above statement: “God did not create us through trial and error.” is the simple fact that you don’t play God in this game. You are not creating man, nor beast, as described in the Bible. The fact is this: If evolution is totally untrue, a mythological concept if you will, then why is it an issue when put into a video game? This is like complaining that short Italian men don’t really throw shells at flying goombas. If it’s all fictional, it really doesn’t matter, does it? Like I’ve said in previous comments, please accept this for what it is, a video game, and not a political or religious statement.

    On a side note, a link to your blog was posted on a site full of angst-filled teenagers whose only purpose would be to annoy you. I recommend you strictly filter the comments you actually approve for posting here.

    “God did not create us through trial and error. He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept. Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try.”

    Ha ha! I’m going to be laughing at the thought of this for days. Thank you so much.

    Face it, church boy!
    There are no gods.
    There is no old bearded men watching us 24/7 ( Maybe a pedophile )
    Only those who are fit can survive.
    We share a common genetical code with every species on this planet. I don’t think GOD created DNA.
    Our Knowledge is based on the tiresome work our scientist, historians and engineers develop, not a fruit of god.
    Entertainment is made by us and it’s supposed to entertain us, not to please your false gods.
    Christianism has good values but most of them are corrupted and bring profit for those who wish to spread their word, this also created wars, humans stupid enough to kill innocent people over something who doesn’t exist.
    Our sacrifice, our will, our power. We all made it, not jesus, not Alah or Buddah.
    Zealotry is dead, a new era where people will finally leave this false gods and open their minds to unit everyone into one sphere that soon will achieve his place on space.

    If all of God’s creations were perfect on the first try, why does our eyesight diminish over time, why do our ears and noses continue to grow until we die, why are most of us born with appendixes (appendices?) that can potentially kill us if infected, why can’t amputees grow their limbs back, why are some people born with deviated septums, heart defects, et cetera?

    I honestly would like to know the answers to these questions, because they truly do vex me. You seem to have an idea about God’s creations, so maybe you can answer them. Thanks for your time.

    As a Christian, I disagree with almost all of your points. How can you deny the theory of “Survival of the Fittest?” It’s been proven over and over again. Now i’m not saying we evolved from apes, because we did not. Although Darwin had the wrong idea regarding the formation of humans, he still made some good points about nature.
    “Additionally, if you choose an omnivore creature, and eat only meat. Guess what? You evolve into a Carnivore.” Um Duh. A carnivore is something that only eats meat? There are people called “Vegetarians” they do not eat meat. Haven’t they essentially evolved (To develop or achieve gradually) into a vegetarian? They certainly were not born vegetarian, they developed into one.

    Just a few comments:

    -How does a Christian explain dinosaurs? How does a Christian justify the overwhelming evidence that modern birds evolved from Raptors?

    -How does a Christian explain Neanderthals?

    -How does a Christian choose which genesis story to believe?

    -How does a Christian follow every law written in the bible?

    -How does a Christian explain why a Human and a Chimpanzee could produce offspring if they mated?

    -How does a Christian explain why humans have the same number of teeth as every other ape but has a smaller jaw? (that’s why humans get wisdom teeth problems)

    -Do Christians still believe that the stars in the sky are attached to a firmament?

    -How do Christians justify the existence of mammals in the oceans?

    Don’t worry, I’ll leave the questions at those — I’m sure that’s enough for you to mull over.

    Actually those are perfectly fine questions to ask a christian. I first need to comment about how god made it perfect the first time which he did not.

    God created dinosaurs then they were wiped out by a meteor which brought around an ice age.

    The bible is flawed because it is written by man and man lies. I would like to know of the laws that the bible say I should follow over the laws provided by the government.

    The whole question about the human and chimpanzee is a little past me. Not sure where you read that or why you are looking at that type of stuff on the net.

    They have the same number of teeth because thats how they were created.

    Survival of the fittest occurs every day and will continue for eons as that what makes life continue but where it began. I know where I stand on it and you know where you stand.

  160. Titoon 10 Sep 2008 at 8:22 am 160

    why would you find it ok to critique a game, set up a whole blog site about it and start posting what were eventually wrong statements (as per your own admission) BEFORE ever sitting down and at least getting familiar with the video game? you created this site and posted updates on a game you of which you did not know its rules and how it worked, and all it did was spread lies and get people fired up about made up facts.

    Why doesn’t the order of your actions (accuse and condemn FIRST, then look up the facts) bother you and those that support your stance? I am no avid fan of video games, and even when i do play, it has never been anything by Wright, but the sequence of your thinking makes me 1) laugh at you and 2) discredit all you have to say from here on in.

  161. Loganon 10 Sep 2008 at 8:23 am 161

    i am a Catholic, which in general terms is a Christian, and i do believe in evolution, i believe that God guided evolution along as any thing that is alive and douse not adapt to its surroundings will inevitably die, and there is overwhelming evidence to say that humans are evolving at an ever increasing rate. and from what i understand the churches current position on evolution is that it is acceptable as long as you believe that God played a major (if not, only) role. and that at some point he placed a soul in humans and gave them a conscience. *sorry about grammar and spelling*

  162. Terenon 10 Sep 2008 at 8:27 am 162

    Seriously, I think Christians shouldn’t watch tv, go the cinema or play games. They all got agaisn’t the almighty will of the bearded dude. Might as well bring the ol’ butter churner and maybe read some of them bible. At the end you can…Dig a hole?

Thanks for letting the world know what close-minded hypocrites you religious folk are. Hey and when you’re done bitching about a game as tame as spore… maybe you can focus on more important things like… oh I don’t know… loving your fellow man instead of condemning them…. Just a thought…

    If God created them, then why?

    If he didn’t…then where did they come from?

    Let me just start off by say that i am a Christian and proud of it. Second i think you ppl at anti spore .com are complete dumbasses. do you seriously have so much time on your hands that you have to bitch about a fucking video game? to me that is just stupid i mean its a video game, Will Wright didnt make it to mock Christians he made it so ppl could have fun which is what every game is designed for FUN. and if you think that makes me any less of a Christian then you have problems cause God doesnt care what kind of games we play. With that said i would to say to you……GET A LIFE!!!!!

    wait… let me get this straight… your beef with the game is that it does not adequately ascribe believable god-like powers on the player and that equates to blasphemy?

    holy crap [no pun intended]

    I don’t even know where to begin to argue with you, so I won’t bother. I have noticed that there are virtually no people reading your blog and commenting that even remotely agree with you. Do you think it may be because you’re using the preferred medium of nerdy science types [founders of the liberal left wing conspiracy] to convey your message?

    I’m guessing the science and discovery channels are not watched very often in your house… what with all the blaspheming and everything.

    i’m actually curious why religious/creationist cant believe in evolution? I mean why cant it be part of gods plan? Maybe he created the basis of life, gave it a push in the right direction (like a dad teaching his son to ride a bike). If we’re created in gods image, maybe he’s actually just a single celled organism. Since we’re made up of millions of them, it would stand to reason that he could very well just be a single celled organism.

    I don’t have anything against religion, but Jesus Christ. Nothing pisses me off more when some idiot tries to use religion to lash out at something so he can feel better about his pitiful excuse for a life. As for the “sexual content” in the creature creator… Maybe we should ban legos while we’re at it huh? After all, you can stack those bricks up on eachother to make a penis or boobs. Imagine the damage that could do to a kid.

  184. rinerdaron 10 Sep 2008 at 9:14 am 184

    I don’t understand how people can be religiously offended by this game, If it was to have a message (not saying that it does) it would be to demonstrate the possiblity that evolution can coexist with creationism where a unseen hand is guiding the development of a creatures. Creationism in it’s purist form is broken in many MANY ways anyway. For example, according to the bible, everything in existences has only been around for 6 thousand years, yet the stars in the sky are so far away, it takes millions, and billions years for the light to travel so we can see a tiny dot in the sky, something that couldn’t possibly happen if everything was only 6 thousand years old. I am not even trying to prove evolution with that argument, just debunking creationism

  185. Stat14on 10 Sep 2008 at 9:17 am 185

    You realize that the players are not God right?
    The players have to try over and over because they have to learn how to do it.
    I had pre-knowledge of how to play the game (I knew one of the developers, etc), so the instance I got the game, I made the perfect creature that managed to stay an omnivore from cell to space age.

    The same applies to God. Did He make creatures that were unfit and then manually support them throughout their lives? No He did not, his creatures were perfect and thus did not need help. Players are not God, the do not instinctively know what to make. These are HUMANs playing the game. You can not expect them to be God. I can promise you if the creator of this game decided to play it in public, his creature would be perfect right off the bat and wouldn’t evolve into something he didn’t originally intend.

    Essentially what I’m saying is, God made Earth and all that we know… Thus is an instant expert at this.
    Take this and pretend now that Spore = Earth and all that we know, and Will is “God” of Spore. He created Spore and thus is an instant expert at the game.

    However normal humans/gamers did NOT create Spore and are not instant experts at it, so their creatures undergo what appears to be evolution… but is really Intelligent Design in the hands of, quite simply put, an unintelligent creator.

    Lol. Seriously god did not create this video game we did. So we can make it however we want to make it. Even if it is using the theory of evolution which I believe is right. And I also believe god did create everything from the beginning but from then on the went through evolution which was changed by the earths atmosphere becoming more durable to contain life and the air started to get stronger. And seriously why even bother making this website. Its just a video game. A video game does not have to be the same thing as god created the earth. A video game is something creative it makes it so we can create our own virtual world without interfering with gods creations.

  188. Sedushion 10 Sep 2008 at 9:28 am 188

    Oh and I forgot to include in my first post im LDS so its not as rule strict as Christianity is. Like if you don’t read the bible you will go to heck. In LDS you don’t have to read the bible to go to heaven you just have to spiritually clean.

  189. kiranon 10 Sep 2008 at 9:52 am 189

    The particular form of evolution you mention in this post (for example an omnivore turning into a carnivore) is not at all disputed. This can be seen simply by observing how human diets around the world differ greatly. Skin colors, facial shapes, all of these vary from country to country because of what people call “evolution”. We can even see new variations come about. Take a look at the children of mixed couples.

    This idea you have about god making perfect creatures the first time is completely misguided when denying evolution. Part of being a perfect species is having the ability to undergo evolution and change based on the environment. I don’t have the energy to debate the existence of a creator, but if he/she did create the perfect creature, evolution was definitely part of the design.

    “God did not create us through trial and error. He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept.”

    You have seen the platypus before, haven’t you? There has been life on this planet for over 400 million years. Obviously if their is a God he created a few different models of life in his day. What I find utterly ridiculous is the fact that you think you’re qualified to preach what God intended. Did God talk to you? Did you two have tea and discussed the relaxing days of old in the garden?

    Also whats up with all the advertising and banners on this site? For someone that is supposed to be spreading the word of God you seem awfully in a hurry to make a quick buck or two. God doesn’t like you making money off his name, true story.

    “If you create a character that functions badly, and you can not eat, or fight, or move fast. You have difficulty surviving. Thus you must through trial and error select a design that works. Which is the fundamental “survival of the fittest” theory behind evolution.”

    And? Your point being? That’s the way the game was designed. And ironically, that seems to be the way it is in real life, too. If a creature is unfit for it’s environment, then it dies. What is so evil about that?
    If you believe that your God created the universe, and whatever is in it, then he also created the rules that its inhabitants play by. Survival of the fittest still applies, whether or not you believe it actually played a part in evolution. Go look at your speckled moth theories that creationists love to throw up. Industrial era, yada yada, too tired to look it up. But basically, speckled moths that didn’t fit into their environment died out, the moths that did, thrived. Guess what that’s called? Survival of the fittest. Where is the evil in that?
    If you don’t like the penis creatures, etc, then fine, I can understand that. But don’t go accusing a game of corrupting children simply because it uses basic mechanics of the universe.

  200. nicesockson 10 Sep 2008 at 12:01 pm 200

    hello,

    let’s say i was a little patch of grass growing in a meadow within a valley. it’s taken a few million years for me to come about, flowering plants only came around in the cretaceous after all, but me and my fellow grass patches are well suited to this valley.
    there’s a stream that runs through here. we get sun most of the day, not a lot of those pesky trees absorbing all that light. the soil has the right kind of nutrients for our roots to nestle in. all in all, we like it here.
    but oh no! a flood happens in this valley! some beavers down stream damned up the water flow, and upstream filled into a lake.
    luckily some of my offspring did alright. they grew along the water way, and were adapted to that environment. and in this new flooded over environment, it is their offspring that survives and replenishes the area. phew.

    that is evolution. creationists will claim that is “microevolution.” i find it funny that the spell checker for this site doesn’t recognize that word.

    let’s presume that happens over millions of years. suddenly the rose bush looks more like an apple tree, or a strawberry plant. all three are in the rose family. they all have a similar leaf, and flower structure. they just work a little different due to evolving in different habitats. trees are more hardy, but require more energy to grow than a vine does.

    likewise, perhaps i was a little shrew-like mammal in the cretaceous. very easily i could be the parent of what would become primates (monkeys, apes, humans) or perissodactyls (odd-toed ungulates; horses, rhinos). because when the giant dinosaurs died off, the biosphere was open. the ancestors of dinosaurs, birds, did there thing. and the ancestors of the small mammals did theres.

    want some proof? let’s say you were a mammal that lived in the jurassic. you survive by your nocturnal nature. you have a warm-blooded system, and you can hunt at night. but color vision doesn’t really help when you are hunting on those new moon nights. how does the ability to see red or green help you in catching a sleeping insect? blue vision permits contrast best; dark blues will look black, light blues will look white. and this monochromatic color-scheme will assist your nocturnal hunts. but, because you share the ancestry with reptiles and birds (some of which have a tetrachromatic eye; four colors) your genes still keep the code to toggle those red and green alleles.
    which leads to us. humans are trichromatic. we can see three colors: red, green, and blue. the ability to see blue is on our 13 chromosome, if i recall right. if this allele wasn’t toggled on in our genetic construction, we wouldn’t be able to see blue. this is referred to as tritanopia, and is very rare.
    green and red alleles are found on our X chromosome. we can consider ourselves lucky, in the past some virus decided to permit both red and green to appear on the same X. not even all of our primate cousins share this trait, but the few very close to us (chimps, bonobos) however, due to genetic diversity, and there are “red-only Xes” and “green-only Xes,” for lack of better terms. so a woman could have two “green only Xes” and be red-color blind. or, more likely, a woman has a red/green X and a green-only X, and only passes the green-only X to her son. she has full color sight, but her son with a green only X and a Y that’s not helping in this situation at all, will have protanopia.
    this helps to explain why color-blindedness is more likely to affect males, because females who carry a color-blind X still have a second X that could cover that issue.

    “science; it works, bitches.” -xkcd

    you do realize that evolution doesn’t negate your god at all. it’s evolution that negates your bronze age mysticism. you still can have you god, just drop the old testament and you’re fine. jesus rehashes the old testament in the new testament anyway. co-opting of other religions, cultures and memes is nothing new to christianity. so why not co-opt evolution?

Please take down this site because its doing more harm than it is good, as much as you would like to think otherwise. Like its turning me off from christianity, and I am a christian!

    If you dont want to play it or your kids to play it, then go ahead and do whatever it takes to stop it. But dont try and censor other peoples products just because you think its wrong. Youre worse than the street corner preachers condeming everyone to hell.

    Youre the type of christians who take everything to the extreme and give us a bad name! Its people like you who started the crusades!

    My father told me to tell all of you to stop mocking a game about evolution.

  207. Jesus Luvs u all this much!on 10 Sep 2008 at 12:32 pm 207

    Anyone who doesn’t believe in evolution also doesn’t believe in climate change or gravity.

    I’m always inspired to hysterical fits of laughter when people try to talk about God. Do you have ANY idea what omnipotence would do to a being? Do you have ANY idea how INCONCIEVABLE such a being would be? Do you have ANY idea how INSIGNIFICANT we would be to such a being. Do you have any idea how irrelevant, not only our entire history, but everything any person ever concieved would be? Air is invisible because it’s refractive index is so low that light seems to pass through it, despite air actually existing. We would be as AIR to such a being.

    Ironically, if God did exist then it would simply be the universe. The reason being that everything would thus be a part of that God. So, when you masturbate to spore creatures stupidly designed to look like a pair of spider monkeys having sex, God can see you, but God is also a part of you. From the spunk on your jeans to the electrons on the computer screen, you’re just a miniscule part of the same impersonal being/object.

    “God did not create us through trial and error. He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept. Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try.”

    Right, I beg to differ. If god exists, he’s made billions of mistakes. You, my friend, are one of them.

    I’d now like to quote south park: “Can’t evolution be the answer to how, and not why?” Is it really that hard to believe that perhaps seven days (in god’s eyes) were really billions of years? Do you really think that his concept of time is the same as yours?

  209. Thomason 10 Sep 2008 at 12:57 pm 209

    I’m sure god everything perfect on the first try, so why are humans so imperfect?

    Two points here:

    (1) You say EA is trying to promote the theory of evolution. You are trying to promote the theory of God. What is the difference??

    (2) Say God DID make everything, why could he not have made it via evolution?

  211. Alastairon 10 Sep 2008 at 1:19 pm 211

    THis kind of website makes my blood boil with anger, so I am going to try my best and be civil.
    Especially when people are so vigilant in destroying a kids minds by “teaching” them what to think instead of how to think. In my opinion that is true evil, the spreading of ignorance in children’s minds, killing their consciousness before they even had a chance to think, like what this website portrays.

    If you want to be a band of herbivore space cows communicating and spreading peace throughout the galaxy you CAN. You can even become religious and you can roll play spreading christ to all the heathen aliens if thats what floats your boat.

    You can be a trader and take spice to outposts that desperately need supplies and be the good Samaritan, IF you want.
    Or you can become the “demon alien” and blow everything up.

    The game is incredibly balanced and you can play it any way you want. NO path is punished for choosing one over the other .

    Pointing out vaginasaures and penis monsters on youtube just shows your ignorance as EA have filters and are constantly removing these creatures.

    As it comes to teaching kids evolution? Hardly, but if it gets them interested in science and wonder of the universe then I am all for it. Especially since there are people like those who run this website so ardently trying to destroy human knowledge and bring up a generation of ignorant children. We need kids asking questions and falling in love with nature, knowing they are part of it. Not asserting that we are above nature, becasue we are made in gods image. That leads to raping of this planets ecosystem and an ego that is way out of proportion to the order of things.

    I know as a Christians you are only interested in finding sin and the bad things in life. Never concentrating on the good in life unless it was the result of “cleansing of sin”. Applying that warped filter to “Spore” jsut shows how sick and soul draining such lifestyle is, one that celebrates in finding, inventing and removing the bad aspects of our humanity. Instead of celebrating the good traits and kind potential we have inside of us, that science and reason shows us.

    Peace

  212. Pleaseon 10 Sep 2008 at 1:23 pm 212

    “after using Craigslist to find someone who would allow me to watch how the game is played”

    You did not even try the game yourself? You made a website based completely on hearsay? It’s like talking about a book you haven’t read. You can therefore not be taken seriously no matter how valid your point may be.

    How can someone “know” that god didnt make mistakes? Are you been there as he was working at this little universe? Have you been sitting on his shoulder? Maybe we are his 2322nd try (and not the last, because we arent working as intended)? And people which are telling such “thesis” (or myth) as truth are at least completely untustworthy, if not sick in the head in a state which isnt treatable. This is not christian behaviour, its just stupid and irresponsible.

  215. Monkeyon 10 Sep 2008 at 2:50 pm 215

    You can make a Spore creature that works perfectly first time.
    The reason people fail at this is that they are NOT God!

    I’m sure if God played Spore he would create the perfect Spore creature the first time too!

    Guys, OPEN YOUR EYES !

    Do you still believe we were created from “God”?

    What about the proofs, that scientist keep giving to us?

    This is a game, a “cute” game, if i were you i would be more concerned about games like GTA IV that envolves SEX, DRUGS, SERIAL KILLERS !

    GAMES ARE NOT THE PROBLEM, PEOPLE ARE !

    I FULLY SUPPORT ADAM !

    About that person that found out his son masturbating, come on OPEN YOUR EYES !

    ITS JUST ANOTHER GAME !

    In what century you LIVE? People need to open their Minds ! And the reason why the World doesnt advance is because of Christianism, when we born we dont have the right to decide to be Baptism or have we? We are forced to believe in what you want ! Im not ANTI-CRIST or SATAN but i keep my mind open, i believe in science and some stories from Christianism and got nothing agains them. But look why in Iraq people die and kill everyday? BECAUSE RELIGION ! Another thing stupid is WHY PRIEST CANT MARRY or Have Sex like normal people? WHY EVERYTIME THE WORLD DISCOVER A NETWORK OF PEDOPHILES IT HAVE ALWAYS PRIEST envolved??

    Sorry for my Bad English.

    But serious this is ridiculus.

  218. XeroSumon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:27 am 218

    its a GAME, no ones trying to teach anyone anything about any way of thinking or beliefs, if anyone is pushing their beliefs on people its YOU, who are YOU to say something is right or wrong?

    your ignorance is astounding!

  219. jan-barton 10 Sep 2008 at 6:29 am 219

    if you think everything god made is perfect, then humans are also perfect. And for this reason this game is also perfect.

  220. TommyVDon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:46 am 220

    So you’re saying you didn’t even play the game yourself, you let someone show you how it plays out? That’s not the same. Ever heard of the Fox scandal around the game Mass Effect? Turns out their ‘expert’ hadn’t even played the game and yet they claimed it was the most corrupting game in existence.

    I respect people when they say they are creationists even if I personally think we came to be through evolution and Darwinism. Respect the opinions of non creationists and Will Wright’s opinion. After all it’s just a game. Let people play it and make up their own mind. People need to make their own choices, not let others make them for them.

    More than that, instead of trying to decide how we came into existence, try to live in the present and enjoy life as it is no matter how we came to be. Life’s to short to worry about these things.

  221. Timmeyon 10 Sep 2008 at 6:55 am 221

    If you don’t want to see evolution don’t play the game! Stop being so ridicule! I do not attack everything that shows me any religious belief so please show some respect to non-believers. You want to keep the world away from this game because it does not fit your point of view. It fits mine so it should stay. Religion does not fit my point of view, you dont see me starting the website antireligion.com.
    Show some respect to your fellow humans, i do believe all religions preach that you have to be good to everyone but it is the most forgotten by believers, they rather read be good to your fellow believers.

    If god’s concepts were perfect on the first try, how come there are more species extinct than alive? or did he just create fossils to help archeologists keep their job?

    Religion is based on stories, not on facts.

  222. freekdemanon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:01 am 222

    Ehm, did you read the bible? And if you did what version? Lilith was god`s creation, because she wouldn`t listen to Adam she was banished. After that God told Adam to create Eva from his own rib.

    So you see, god creates through trail and error, if you believe in God that is.

  223. seekeron 10 Sep 2008 at 7:07 am 223

    So what are we gonna do to prevent children from seeing and touching their own genitals? We can hardly bindfold and cuff them them in dark boxes until they understand the rules created by fundamentalist church engineers.

    If God created us the way we are, I will ask when we get to meet eventually “what purpose serve the hairs around my anus?”
    Now that is something that has bothered me for quite a while now. No ape has hairs at this place, why do we?
    Then again, some women do not have hairs around the anus, while most do have at least some (according to my own statistic).
    I like to believe believe there is a God, he/she/it is the Universe, God is everything including evolution, penises and hairs at weird places.
    I could be wrong though and will vanish into nothingness in a few years. A shame I did not play Spore yet.

    How the hell would you know ?

  225. Sethon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:25 am 225

    This site confuses me. I’m a church going christian (at least 2x a week) and I see no problem with this game. I also believe in God, evolution and I fully endorse a secular government. Does this somehow make me less christian? I guess it all depends on what qualities you consider to be real christianity. To me it’s decency, helping those who need aid and loving God. If not for the securom I would have already purchased this game.

  226. Sporemanon 10 Sep 2008 at 7:26 am 226

    Spore does not promote Evolution. It puts you in the role of god. creating creatures and helping them to be better.

    Actually, we’re far from perfect — see wisdom teeth, male nipples, the appendix, and more. So either God exists and made a slightly botched job of us, or these imperfections are yet to be ironed out by evolution. With respect to your views, I’m an atheist, so obviously believe the latter.

  229. The Watcheron 10 Sep 2008 at 8:47 am 229

  232. Benderon 10 Sep 2008 at 10:18 am 232

    First of all let me say that i’m impressed that you take the time to voice your opinion.. even though lots of people dont comply.

    Second i would like to ask you to re-evaluate your views, maybe learn hebrew and try to read the holy scriptures yourself ( and possibly from an objective view ). Doing so will make you reallize that the bible does describe evolution.

    Further more god didnt succeed in creating a creature in one try…. it took millions like many spore players will need… ( there is a difference between adam & noah )

    Good luck!

  233. Benon 10 Sep 2008 at 11:12 am 233

    “If you create a character that functions badly, and you can not eat, or fight, or move fast. You have difficulty surviving.”

    I’m sorry but that part is not a theory, it’s common fucking sense and cold logic. If an animals ability to eat, defend from predators or move is impaired or is gone entirely, it will not survive without outside intervention.

    You’re either very very stupid, completely batshit crazy or having a massive laugh. There are no other options.

  234. John Sporemanon 10 Sep 2008 at 11:19 am 234

  237. WillJon 10 Sep 2008 at 12:48 pm 237

    If you look at humans from an intelligent perspective viewpoint and consider that the human backbone still suffers from standing upright or that eagles have far better eyesight than God’s children then what exactly is the problem of creating creatures in a way where they don’t operate 100% efficiently? Animals don’t do it, so why should Spore?
    There’s mountains of evidence for evolution that has been while creationism follows one specific book from one specific desert region of the planet that can be shown to have been written at a much later date that creationists will admit. Jerusalem was barely a hamlet when it was meant to have great David’s city, for example. And the 10 commandments were blatantly written hundreds of years after any supposed exodus (that the Egyptians didn’t record ). The NT can also be easily seen as being written to curry favour with the Roman empire too, rather than being historical. Pilate would have executed Jesus without a second thought, and by shifting blame to the Jews you have a book that justifies the holocaust. I doubt Jehovah had that in mind when he told Abraham to not burn his son. If anything is against the God, then I’d say it’s the pieced together collection of writings that forms your bible.

    Of course you can just say that God had the book made to be so, just to test us. He made us, so why the need to test unless his creations aren’t as perfect as you suggest or ‘he’ could muster?

    You really don’t have to worry about Spore warping the minds of the young. Scientific inquiry will do that for them, once you let them free to view the world with their own eyes and stop holding up an iron age document as proof of anything other than the desert’s ability to preserve documents.

  238. Karaon 10 Sep 2008 at 1:48 pm 238

    How can you possibly make all these claims about Spore without playing it yourself??? Wow, you had to find someone on Craigslist to let you watch them play it? That’s so lame! What, are you afraid you’ll believe in evolution just by buying the game? Seriously, grow some guts and play Spore. If you don’t want to support EA by paying for it, then pirate it. But then you’d be stealing, so….

  239. Jeffon 10 Sep 2008 at 3:11 pm 239

    “However, I have received many comments saying that the game is more like intelligent design than evolution and I must say I very much disagree after using Craigslist to find someone who would allow me to watch how the game is played.”

    I am, at least according to most of you, what you would call a child. I am fifteen years old, and quite a bit smarter than most of my peers. I’m not going to be immature and rant about “NO GOD!” or “YOU’RE AN IDIOT!” And the main reason for that is I’d like to be taken seriously. You’re a man with a child, it’s understandable that you care about the beiefs that you, as well as your church, have taught him. It’s perfectly understandable why you don’t want your child playing this game. My only question is, why shouldn’t anyone else be able to? If you’re worried about the games your child is playing, maybe you should research them beforehand. You have obviously done plenty of research on it in order to make these remarks. All I’m saying is, this country was founded on freedom of religion. Just because something interferes with the things you think, doesn’t mean that no one should be able to play it. And I was also very disappointed about the comment you made about homosexuals. It’s sad to believe in the twenty-first century, people still exist with close minded ideals such as these.

  244. dwillison 10 Sep 2008 at 7:30 pm 244

    I’m really glad that you think that god was able to create everything perfect the first time, but here’s an idea, keep your beliefs to yourself, why is it that religious people always want to shove their ideas down everyone’s throats? You say that millions of trial-and-errors didn’t take place as a result of evolution also? then I guess all the proof of how old the earth is compared to what the bible says must be thrown out the window as well, because during the earth’s existence there has been plenty of time for evolution to take place… so something is wrong, which is it? analyzable data or the bible? I have made my choice between the two.

  245. Philon 10 Sep 2008 at 8:58 pm 245

    You’re very narrow-minded. You probably protested the lack of creationism in schools. You probably got fired up about the removal of the ten commandments outside of that public building. You probably would pull your kid out of class once you found out the school is teaching your kid about the australopithecus.
    If God didn’t want us to think about intelligent design and evolution, why would God allow us to study it, investigate it, and create games that use it as an influence?
    Or is this just a “test” to see who’s faithful? You know, you really need to open up a little bit. The game is incredibly fun and allows you to do whatever you want. It lets you make improvements to creatures you create.
    I’m surprised you’re just doing antispore ranting. What about Black and White? Darwinia? Populous?

    If you’re going to whine about blasphemous games that should offend everyone, then you need to be fair and expose all these other “evil” games.

    Because, you know, this is more important than other things in the world like paying attention to your kids, career, etc.

  250. Jaimyon 11 Sep 2008 at 1:53 am 250

    For someone that takes religion so seriously, you’re forgetting that one little thing that people call “Respect”. If you actually read the bible while making the assumptions that this game is evil for ‘teaching’ a different way of what you believe in, you’re also forgetting that:

    A) It’s just a game.
    B) Even if it’s wrong, it’s still made solely for entertainment and not educational purposes.

    Before you bash on anyone and their ‘evil ways’, you’re suposed to respect every individual before asuming they’re evil and wrong and trying to ban things that entertain them.

    You’re a horrible hypocrit, and at this rate, hun, you’re going to hell.

    ps. “Additionally, if you choose an omnivore creature, and eat only meat. Guess what? You evolve into a Carnivore.”

    Guess what? Do you even know what Carnivore means? Carnivore stands for “ONLY EATS MEAT.” If you “ONLY EAT MEAT”, what does that make you? Oh, right.

    You are correct. but i am not God. of course i will make mistakes in finding my perfect design for my creature – also, this is a game. not real btw. I own it too.

    I am a Christian. I have believed in God all my life. Your entire website saddens me.

    Do i believe in evolution? Not how it is generally accepted.

    Can i accept that something so wonderful and amazing as the concept, something changing over time, refining, could come from our God, who is most definately capable of wonderful and amazing things? perhaps.

    I have no answers, I dont pretend to. But i have all faith that God is in command, that he is watching, and that he is pretty proud of what we Humans can accomplish with the creativity he gave us.

    “If you create a character that functions badly, and you can not eat, or fight, or move fast. You have difficulty surviving. Thus you must through trial and error select a design that works. Which is the fundamental “survival of the fittest” theory behind evolution.”
    That theory can pretty much be proven very easily. And every online videogame has that mindset, if you’re the best you normally live longer.

  261. JORIon 14 Sep 2008 at 5:55 am 261

    You say that god did not create man by trial and error.
    Yet if you believe the BIBLE fully, and that the 1st people were ADAM and EVE.
    With ADAM he got it right 1st time, but EVE was the I believe the 3rd Woman he created as the other 2 revolted ADAM so much. 1 of those PRE- WOMAN was LILITH who ended up becoming the mother of demons- had sex with so many , she birthed demons for 1000 days.
    So if god did not create by trial and error how do you explain those PRE- EVE women ???
    BTW : I am a MODIE , I have no belief in any belief system, but I have to belive in others belief in their belief systems.

    If god created everything perfectly the first time then why do species go extinct? If man was perfect the first time then why the floods? Was it not because we were to wicked?

    If you are an omnivore, you can eat whatever you want, you’ll still be an omnivore when you evolve to the next phase. What you become is aggresive, friendly or diligent, according to how your relations with other creatures were.

    Watch better next time, or even better, realize you cannot be the judge of subjects you obviously dont know, like game mechanics, or this game in particular.

    Even better, go back to the caves and try to have some evolution yourself. You need it badly.

    God did not create us through trial and error. He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept. Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try

    Where is your proof of this statement? And do not say “it’s in the bible.” Thats a man made construct. easily corrupted and mistranslated ( And OH the corruption that is the king james bible, so very far from the original)

    No proof?

    Then do not make such statements.

    I don’t go around stating that I can shoot laser beams out of my nipples, because I could never proove such an inane thing.

    If god made us so perfect why do people need to find cures for AIDS and Cancer?If we are so perfect we should be immune to every disease…
    And why do humans cause wars?If we are perfect we shouldn’t have wars…
    Now look at a wild wolf for example.He doesn’t need wars to live.He doesn’t hate or like spore.He exists for helping his family and himself.That makes the wolf perfect.Now look at a human.He hunts wolfs for fun, and he is proud of is act.Do you think that’s perfection?I don’t think so.Every human must reach perfection for himself.
    If you don’t like this game don’t buy it and simply shut up.

    “Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try.”

    you disprove that fact

    Scotty be stupid. And I quote:
    “Just a few comments:

    -How does a Christian explain dinosaurs? How does a Christian justify the overwhelming evidence that modern birds evolved from Raptors?

    -How does a Christian explain Neanderthals?

    -How does a Christian choose which genesis story to believe?

    -How does a Christian follow every law written in the bible?

    -How does a Christian explain why a Human and a Chimpanzee could produce offspring if they mated?

    -How does a Christian explain why humans have the same number of teeth as every other ape but has a smaller jaw? (that’s why humans get wisdom teeth problems)

    -Do Christians still believe that the stars in the sky are attached to a firmament?

    -How do Christians justify the existence of mammals in the oceans?

    Don’t worry, I’ll leave the questions at those — I’m sure that’s enough for you to mull over.”

    First of all, dinosaurs were created by God, they did not evolve from anything. There is not very much evidence to support the theory that birds evolved from dinos. Raptors may in fact be giant flightless birds.

    Second, Neanderthals are merely a race of people that lived several thousand years ago. You may scoff, but several modern people groups have many characteristics that evolutionists use to classify Neanderthals as “less than human”.

    Third, there are NOT 2 different creation stories in Genesis. The first is the creation of the entire universe, whilst the second focuses on the creation of man. (Have you even bothered to read up on the arguments you posted?)

    Fourth, people are not perfect. There is no way we can follow every law and not sin, because we are all born with sin in our natures. However, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t TRY.

    Fifth, If a human and chimpanzee mated, they would NOT produce offspring. I know this because they already tryed that in the Soviet Union (apparently to create armies of Ape men). The result? None of the insimination techniques worked.

    Sixth, perhaps we have smaller jaws because we have softer processed foods. Peoples in africa and other such places usually have much stronger jaws than people in developed countries because they chew up much harder, grittier foods.

    Seventh, No christians do not still beleive that the stars are in a solid firmament. In fact, the bible tells that the earth is both round and that it is suspended in nothing in space.

    Eighth, They were created by God in the oceans, simple as that.

    Finally, to the admin of this multi post thingy, I know that spore is not exactly creationism, but neither is it demon spouting evilutionism. It’s just a game, your’e not going to hell if you play it (As long as you remember it’s JUST a game, You’ll be fine).

    And that’s the end of that.

    u’re comparing your God similar level with a game that human created? obviously u’re insulting your God.. im so sorry that u’re misguided.. i hope that u can find peace.. and get minor punishiment from God

  270. [...] expect, anti-it. This mom is afraid of the damage of allowing children play an evolution game. In one entry she talks about how the game actually proves creation in how the player “creates” their [...]

    To the admin, I hope you read this. Before you wonder, I have not played the game myself and I have had little intention to before reading all of this wonderful discussion to do with the game. Ironic, then, that your website which is specifically here to discredit this game, has intrigued someone enough to go out and play it, even though they otherwise would not have.

    In any case, I am not saying what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’; I merely wish to properly inform you of the actual concepts of ‘creationism’ and ‘evolution’. My grandfather was and still is mislead as to the definition of ‘evolution’. Upon hearing my explanation, all he said was “There are still a great many things which it just cannot explain. Darwin said so himself.” I do not know whether or not Darwin discredited his own theory, or if it was just misinterpereted by my grandfather; but upon hearing my explanation, he simply said I was wrong not because the concept I explained to him was flawed, but because it disproved his belief that a ‘greater force than you or me’ created the living creatures on Earth. I am not here to discredit religion in any way shape or form; I am just explaining what the actual concept of evolution is. [N.B.:Perhaps you could have saved me the time by looking it up yourself?]

    The theory of creation is that god created/creates everything. The theory of evolution is that we are a fluke, the result of billions of years of:
    [
    something
    ==> replicates, but mutated in a tiny and seemedly insignificant way
    ==> the bad mutations die + good ones survive
    ]

    Evolution is NOT “tiny creature is about to get eaten and ‘evolves’ a horn with which to kill the predators due to necessity”. It is also NOT “creatures are being eaten, they reproduce and their kids have a horn with which to defend themselves due to necessity”. The concept of evolution is that when something reproduces, it is NOT an exact copy of the original (or a direct copy of parts of the mother and father, etc). The offspring is definitely similar to the parent(s), but there are tiny ‘insignificant’ differences.

    These differences over time add up. The children have children, who have children, who have children, who have children, etc. Some of these differences will add up to something benficial, others will add up to something unbeneficial; ie a creature living in an incredibly cold environment has kids who have kids who have kids etc and after a while the fur coat of one is one centimeter longer than the original(s). There are also others whose coat is one centimeter shorter. If one day, the weather happens to be few degrees colder than it has ever been there, causing the shorter haired ones to die off, the longer hair ones continue to live.

    If you’ve ever studied the way way bacteria can evolve in a laboratory petri dish, given slight changes (over time there’s a large change), then perhaps you would see proof of this, this theory which is ‘incorrect’. Bacteria are a good choice with which to see evolution because they reproduce incredibly quickly, and their size allows for an incredbly large number of them to be contained and observed in a relatively small space.

    Another example of evolution would be to breed flies and mix up an incredibly weak poison and spray them all with it, some will live, allow those to reproduce, build up the population and spray them all again and again and eventually they will almost all (if not all) live. Another possibility is to increase the strength of the poison by a tiny amount each time, or to increase by a fraction of a degree each week the heat of the enclosure. The ones which have the grave misfortune to have had a bad mutation will die and the ones which have the good fortune to have mutated for the better will live. The death of the ‘weak’ ones means an end to their ‘genetic pollution’ of the gene pool.

    Well, that was the concept of evolution. Now for creationism. This is a much simpler idea. Creationism is basically where someone or something just makes a creature. What happens to that creature after it was created is irrelevant. Another example of creationism is to directly alter a creature in such a way that it’s children will have that alteration as well. Is it not ironic that creating a brand new creature in a laboratory is ‘playing God and therefore blasphemous and bad’, even though it is proof of the idea of creationism?

    I have no intention of telling you what to think. You have my email address now, feel to drop me a line. But I will say that I am rather fond of not only the notion of ‘natural selection’, but also ‘natural attrition’. Natural selection can be summarized as the ‘strong’ survive and the ‘weak’ die off. Natural attrition is where the stupid kill themselves ie, cutting a branch off while sitting on it. I bid you farewell, and await ‘nature’ to take it’s course :)

    Let me dumb this down for all of y’all. Christianity, SOME good morals but mainly just hypocritical, all bull shit, christians, nice people but they have all been decieved, finatical creationalists and people who take every word of the bible literally, annoying, whiney ignorent, lying, hypercrital, kiddy fiddlers.

    LOL
    ok that might not be all true but then again no one is perfect, oh look just one more argument AGAINST creationaism.

    Me:knock knock
    You:who’s there?
    Me:doctor
    You:doctor who?
    Me:FUCKING SHUCK YOUR MOUTH ARSEFUCKING BASTARD!

    [quote=you]God did not create us through trial and error. He did not make millions of mistakes until deciding on the final concept. Each of his concepts were perfect on the first try.[/quote]

    But we are not gods, we do not know what is the perfect form to create before creating it.

    So I guess you this goes even further to show that for us to have created man we would have needed evolution, and without a belief in God there is no alternative.

    But as you already beleive in God this shouldn’t be a problem at all.

    Please admit that Evolution is the best explaination for the existance of life on earth unless you assume the existance of God.

    why had god created spore? he? do you have the answer!???!!!

  275. :Don 04 Nov 2010 at 12:11 pm 275

    spore is the best game ever!

  276. Anonymouson 03 Jan 2011 at 4:55 pm 276

    Everyone I know on Spore is basically just trying to show off their imagination and creativity. They try to impress people with bizarre creations. That’s their purpose. God created us to live life and enjoy it. People have many different ways of enjoying life, and I agree, some of them might not be the most appropriate. People enjoy playing Spore, so why stop them?
