My virtual life is better than my real life (Sword Art Online analysis)

This is a short one, but here it goes.
The most common use of technology and the one that’s been told a thousand times in entertainment is the use of virtual reality; a world more immersive then the world we live in now and if we die in the virtual world, we die in real life. Big stuff. For psychological reasons, many of us want to escape. We do it every time when we return home from work, from a date, from a scary hospital and we want to look at kittens for relief. It’s popular, but it’s a suicide at large if you think about it. Whether you liked Sword Art Online or not and how it’s gaming references and love story experiments such a gathering, elements in the show portray a double jeopardy into how we see ourselves as different people and how we wish to spend the rest of our days.
The individual’s life serving in an alternate reality increases when they break limitations they never thought they could do before, gaining skills, dressing up, traveling anywhere, and fighting monsters. Using a helmet and connecting the consciousness into a video game where millions of others can meet up is a growing trend, but it also serves as a means of going to a world after death through means of killing the player (if the player has no desire to live in the real world and wishes to have more time to be in a world that's meaningful). Hence the story of SAO when the creator traps players in the game with no way of turning off the game or they’ll die. Many of the main characters and other players in the game, some of them are carefree of the idea, most of them question their lives of how they will adapt in a video game while their bodies in the real world decay slowly. Addiction, confusion, low esteem, anxiety, and physical and sexual behavior are signs of playing so much and the characters show these. Kirito is a loner in the real world and the virtual world and is scared easily when players ask him to join a guild and flirts with some of the women. Other players are at risk because higher leveled creatures and players roam around twenty four hours a day. Their personal heaven. And I don’t even want to imagine what happens to their blander and bowels in the game.
But even when the desperation sets in, Kirito and company still help players and not want any of them, who are weak to carry out their own lives while playing a game, to feel like they're scared. Kirito shows these signs very consistently, and he himself is someone who has had a troubled past and his two year coma is a way of going out. At least until he wakes up.

Would You Rather: Be A Polyglot Master Or Musical God?
It's time for the Funny Community's 'Would You Rather?' game! At the end of every week, I ask you guys to decide between two very strange things. Last week, I asked you to choose between telepathy and telekinesis, and out of 72 votes, the winner was... TELEKINESIS! This week, I want to know: Would you rather know how to speak all the languages of the world or know how to play every musical instrument? If you know all the languages, you'll be able to speak to whoever you want to - and probably land some pretty cool jobs! But if you knew all the musical instruments, you could probably start your very own one-man band! So which rare ability would YOU rather have? Comment below with your answer, debate among your Vingle friends, and I'll share the results next week! @malibella @Priscillasdoor @WiviDemol @JunieRose @JessicaChaney @ButterflyBlu @OGPanda @GinTenma @JaxomB @BeckyNewman @TerrecaRiley @MengNoZhang @VixenViVi @DannyMoses @ChosenKnight @AnnaArai @GreyStorm84 @Kuramariin @AshelyJewell @Animefoxgirl97 @deilig @chris98vamg @kimleekwonshin @shantalcamara @KpopLuver13 @Astrohelix @NerukaWong @reesesrisa @BluBear07 @SarahVanDorn @Danse @InPlainSight @matildajgarrett @JPBenedetto @MissB82 @SiobhanMartin @LAVONYORK @Jolzz @InPlainSight @KellyOConnor @JPBenedetto @Luci546 @Kaidra @buddyesd @SarahRoot @cthulu @EmilianoMacias @Aripendragon @DipDopOfTheDip @Beccachu @supbroscene @AndreaFuller @React10K1ng @punkpandabear @Karthikkrazzy1 @JessicaPeters @EstefanOlivares @LenaBlackRose @peahyr @MelissaMae @BlackDragon88 @Showta365 @humairaa @petname83 @destiny1419 @drummergirl691 @Fledgling @SheannaWilliams @addri @Mysticinumiko @jazminramirez9 @IAmSasha @MajahnNelson @BlackXShield @LaceChic1 @Melodicballoon @FlyingAway @shellyfuentes70 @TheDumDumTroll @MissT615 @in4mtoxic006 @animerg13 @AlisonGrace @DavidPap @Emmeronsage @Vega1240 @ZombieDragon @LittleHorn @Meeshell @HeatherWright @kawaiiporpoise @MarvelTrashcan @DenieceSuit @ShinigamiSan @EasternShell @BT2581 @AnneH @KarleyFrance @DaiGakuSei @reyestiny93 @AnimeLove300 @Jarod @justme29 @ShatrdGalaxies @Vocaloid @JamiMilsap @DorianBell @PeteTehCat @MaggieCokeley @clobbersaurus @gabbycalzada @JessicaFerrier @brandontearss @m3179035411 @TheSuperior @Beeplzzz @Romana @sbeh @AnasiaLaureano @ChrisLyons @dimplequeen @ssjleek @classydownhillr @ultimatefangurl @KaylaJZ @MzDawson31508 @LiliRamos @Xiuyeolhyun @carmaa10 @Sara3 @MoisEsGaray @Alletaire @dropuentex @hhead232 @thiree @nberry1620 @atmi @KennedyCasey @TiffanyWallace @PassTheSuga @arnelli @FalseLove @jmartinez230304 @kneelb4zod @Baoyi @a514girl98 @DwaynGrant @mymi @ChienWeiHuang @KennyMcCormick @Captpeter @DianaBell @Zara0uk @seika469 @TBird @jlee37 @Animaniafreak @ThyaremyCreator @fatimajj23 @MichaeOgg @jonathan11 @BatataKnight @Ritu @culversyanne @LadyLuna @SarahRegulski @LiviBelle @TinaDang

What If We Taught Students That Religion is Absurd?
We need to educate our children and teenagers to the point where they can think critically for themselves and can easily see and understand the absurdity of religion. The good news is that once someone’s brain is at this level of comprehension, a great many positive side effects occur. Life would be much better for everyone if everyone in our society is educated to the level where they understand that religion is absurd. The religiosity of America fascinates me. I am intrigued by the idea of millions of people in an advanced nation believing that they have a “relationship” with an imaginary friend and believing that this imaginary friend is answering their prayers.  In the United States, something like 76% of the population believes in God, and seventy percent of the population identifies as Christian. Three-quarters of the U.S. population believes that the Bible was at least inspired by God, and 28% (more than 89 million people) believe the stories in it are literally true. Why would anyone today believe that the Christian god is real or that the story of Noah’s ark is true? My goal here is to advocate that we, as a society, start an active campaign to make religion irrelevant to human civilization. In the same way that there have been active campaigns to eliminate diseases like smallpox and polio, we should start a similar campaign against religion.  The tool I propose for religion’s elimination is across-the-board education in critical thinking. But first, let’s step back for a moment and ask, How do we find ourselves in this position as a species? There are many interesting things that human beings do. Music, math, tools, cooking, science, engineering, art, and language all come to mind. But religion ranks up there as perhaps the most interesting.  Religion stands out because it is so irrational and bizarre. Billions of people on this planet believe in their various imaginary beings so firmly that disagreements about religion often escalate to violence and warfare.  Read the full story: https://www.fadewblogs.eu.org/2021/11/teaching-about-religion-in-school.html

Jesus: Prophet of Peace and Love or Purveyor of Fear and Hate?
Multitudes of Christian commentators over the past two millennia have proclaimed the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth to be unsurpassed tenets of spiritual wisdom and unexcelled guidelines for living a morally responsible life.  Hundreds of millions of devout believers are absolutely convinced that they will conquer death and attain everlasting life because God sacrificed his son for their sins. They are also convinced that Jesus didn’t really die. He was restored to life and subsequently ascended to heaven to spend eternity with his father, and soon Jesus will return to Earth to judge the wicked and rapture righteous believers up to heaven with him. Countless books have been written extolling the allegedly commendable features of the “Christian worldview” and the “Christ-centered life,” but, by contrast, few authors have examined the unsavory side of Jesus’ personality and his less than-meritorious behavior and opinions. For this presentation, I’ve formulated, in a balanced fashion, two sets of ten principles based on Jesus’ pronouncements. Although his directives come from the canonical gospels (the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), additional documentation is abundant elsewhere in the New Testament epistles and letters. The twenty precepts are listed along with the supporting Bible verses from which they derive. The cited verses and passages appear in this separate article. This scriptural evidence will enable readers to answer for themselves the binary question that is the title of this article. NB: This article is not made assuming Jesus literally indeed existed, but an evaluation of the character of the Abrahamic religious texts.
