#341007 Gears of War?

First of all, Not really mercs, they are a Military that is part of the 'RDA'. Either way, it was made very clear that they're a Military occupying an area, and are "destroying the land with their weapons and technology", Which, anyone could guess, is an imagining of the War in Afghanistan and Iraq. Second, thanking fate for the meal, and dancing around their food thanking it is different. My family thanks God for our meals, but we don't dance around our food, I mean, Seriously, would you? And I'm sorry, but most critics of Ben Stein's Expelled said it was a movie that didn't prove anything and was an insult to science. And then, do you let a movie critic voice your opinion? I see a movie that I think will be good, when I hear the setting. I don't look at reviews until after I see the movie. and quite often, they differ from most people i know's interpretation of the movie, Especially in films like Avatar, 2012 and The Day the Earth Stood Still, and let's not forget Super 8, the monster that killed a lot of people, and then got justification because it was "a captured poor beast that needed to be free from the Evil Government that was holding it and going to use it for experiments". right? I look at both sides. You have the Government who are harvesting the planet, and the "poor defenseless" natives here. It's highly dramatisized, where the Military is the "overpowering force" and the natives are losing so badly against a threat to their life.

Alas, My Opinion, your Opinion doesn't matter.

I refuse to rise to yor bait from here on out.

The whole reason the alien in Super 8 was killing people was because it was captured by the military and had a ton of invasive experiments done on it (it was also probably sexually assaulted, but that's just my assumption)

Seriously, how would YOU react if you were the alien, far away from home, confused, probably scared. I'm not saying it's right that it killed people, but it's not right what happened to it.

it's like George Lucas when he made Padme fall in love with Anakin instead of Obi-Wan. who is much cooler, and probably closer to her age. and later, HE GROWS A BEARD!

chicks dig beards. lol

What drugs are you on, and where can I get them?

Hey, that's a pretty good question. For the Human factions, it depends on a lot of different things... cultural background, religion, family tradition, the requests of the deceased, even profession (aerospace crewmen sometimes have their bodies shot out into space). The most common type of burial is probably cremation.

The Natives all have different ways of respecting the dead. The Mahlok still bury their dead, and all Mahlok who die are traditionally shipped back to their homeworld and sealed in one of the huge necropolis vaults there. The Slashrim always burn their dead, as a sign of their return to Helexith, the fire-god. The Sarran have various traditions of burial depending on the planet or family, much like Humans. They value the spirit more highly than the corporeal body, but the chosen method of burial is still highly respected. The Sarran find Human "archaeology" disgusting, since the dead are not meant to be disturbed. Some Sarran tombs have remained untouched for untold millennia.

For Humans, basically the same religions that exist today, assosciated with largely the same cultures as today (Victory and Xarkon probably mostly Christian, Zygbar containing the most Muslims, Yavakaro containing the most Buddhists, etc.).
Of course, the Mahlok preach the will of Helexith to the Slashrim in order to keep them under control, the Sarran believe in the one-spirit Afaelya, and the Achmer are pretty much non-religious.

Well thank you tongue.gif. I didn't put in any specifics for burial, but thanks. That's pretty interesting, I never would've figured Mahlok's buried their dead, but it does make sense.

What are the burial, or ways of respecting the dead in the different cultures?

What are the main religions, if there are any?
