Why does the film “Let There Be Light” anger atheists?

LTBL_poster

There is a film called Let There Be Light  now available on Blu-Ray and DVD which according to some review sites such as IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes has many atheists enraged.  Why?  The first reason being is that Sean Hannity is the executive producer of this movie. To many like myself, this is a positive thing but to people who have a anti Biblical world view and oppose God, (because the love of sin is greater), Sean Hannity is like a Ray Comfort or Jesus Christ who proclaims truth and light in a place that doesn’t want that light.

How many of us know how much Sean Hannity is hated, mocked and scorned on a daily basis?  Many of us wouldn’t be able to bear as much as Sean does but why is the hatred happening at all?  Sean like many others is a champion of liberty, truth, and a defender of the defenseless.  Sean Hannity proclaims light in a dark place just as the film “Let There Be Light” attempts to do.   And while it’s true we need more Sean Hannitys in this world to spread the “light” in a political sense, his film  “Let There Be Light” goes even further in doing just that.

The war between good and evil is real

This film “Let There Be Light” to some extent, takes on the daily war between good and evil.  It displays the battle going on between going God’s way and the way we naturally would probably rather go.  One reason Jesus was murdered was because He proclaimed that men’s hearts are evil.  We naturally want to sin (break God’s law).  It’s in our DNA.  You don’t need to train a child to do bad deeds.  Instead responsible parents will train their children to do the right thing, morally and lawfully speaking.  Now because it’s natural for sinners to sin, it can even be “fun” to break God’s law, for a season but the real question is, what happens after we die? Will there be a consequence for our sinning against a holy God?   If hell is a real place as Jesus proclaims in Matthew 5 will you find yourself existing in hell for eternity or living in heaven for eternity.  If God is real and requires accountability for our actions, where will He find you?

Let There Be Light proclaims the Light

Now the movie “Let There Be Light” does not discuss hell directly but what is does share is the message of the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.   The idea of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on its own is enough to enrage an atheist.  Reason?  If the Jesus who is spoken of in the Bible is the one who He claims to be (God manifest in the flesh) and did rise from the dead He is therefore the Savior of sinners.  But we each then must deal with our sin before God.  We will someday face a holy, perfect, righteous God who cannot have sin in His presence.  If you have ever taken the good person test, you find we all have broken God’s moral law, the Ten Commandments.   However, if Jesus was a liar and did not rise from the dead despite what his disciples claimed, then none of what I am saying or what He has spoken in His word matters.

When a film shares the truth and especially the light and the One who is the Light of the world, and exposes who the enemy is and his evil plan, it will be opposed by workers of iniquity because as the Bible proclaims, “their deeds were evil”.

“This is the condemnation, that the light [Jesus] has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”  John 3:19

Do you know the One who is the Light?

How Overrated is Subnautica?

subnautica

Is Subnautica an overrated game?  Of course.  And generally speaking, glowing reviews surround Subnautica despite poor optimization, massive texture pop-in, and inexplicable frame-rate drops, Subnautica gets promoted as one of the best games in existence. Recently it made the number eight spot for PC Gamers top 100 games on Steam.  No mention of the poor optimization,  studders or random textural pop-in.

The Good

Now let me be clear. Is Subnautica a fun game? The short answer is yes.  Is Subnautica a beautiful rendered game world? Yes it is.  It has great visuals and territory to explore at your own pace.  Love games like this.  We call these sand boxy or open-world type games.  Subnautica solely an open world game though because it does follow a story if you wish to progress in the game and upgrade your equipment. (Although there is a free build and explore mode in the menu)

The Not-so-good

And yet after the glowing reviews have settled down one cannot ignore the seemingly random frame drops and studders regardless of the graphic settings one chooses.  I tested this out too. After 40 hours of game-play I chose low, medium and high graphical settings and I got the same result–random studdering at various locations with a mix of random  low and high frame-rate each time.  Load the game again and the studdering would occur in a different place than the previous time I played.  Why?  I hadn’t changed anything.

Another twist

Subnautica also has another (albeit most likely unintentional) feature most people might not realize.  Intentional or not, Subnautica might just well share some allegorical tones with Christianity.  Let’s take a closer look.

Important to note: What follows contains spoilers

Subnautica is an underwater survival game in which you, the player, have crash landed on an alien planet.  The planet is filled with alien sea creatures–some scary and some cute and friendly while others are downright deadly.

In a similar way, the earth we live on is filled with people, some of which are hostile to others, mean and outright murderous.  And still many people are genuinely nice, friendly and trustworthy.  For a Christian, we know the hostility many face is because of our simple belief and trust in the God of the Bible—namely Jesus Christ.

Infected

Within Subnautica a bacterium (known as the Kharaa bacterium) has infected the planet’s inhabitants, alien life, including you the player, and apparently has become part of the ecosystem of the make-believe planet known as Planet 4546B.

In Genesis from the Bible we learn that the day Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, sin entered our world and has infected all of mankind.  (Sin in our world is the breaking of God’s law (the Ten Commandments)).

In Subnautica the primary goal’s are to find a cure for the Kharaa bacterium and ultimately leave the planet (since it’s not your real home).

Today, the world needs a cure for sin otherwise they will be facing God on Judgment when they die without their sin fixed and taken care of.  To the Christian, earth is not a permanent home because heaven is our ultimate hope.

Deliverance

In Subnautica, the planet’s inhabitants need a savior–someone to rescue it from the doom it is facing.  You the player, also need to be rescued.

In real life, we each find ourselves (whether we admit to it or not) in far worse predicament.  Since God is holy and perfect He cannot have sin in his presence which means no sinful person can be in His presence without being consumed by His judgment.  Sort of like a dry leaf being consumed by fire. And as a good judge must punish a lawbreaker God must deal with our breaking His laws. God being just and righteous means He must punish sin wherever it is found. Ever broke God’s law?  Let’s see.  Ever lied?  Stolen something? Hated someone?  God views human hatred as murder.  Lusted? Jesus said to look with lust is the same as adultery (see Matthew 5:28).  Ever used God’s name as a cuss word? Hitler and Muhammad names are not even hated as much to be used as a cuss word.  To use God’s name to express disgust is blasphemy.  The point is, we All have sinned by breaking God’s perfect holy law and need someone who hasn’t sinned to save us from judgment in hell.

In the game Subnautica, a rescue attempt is made by the spacecraft Sunbeam. As the Sunbeam descends onto the alien planet it is immediately destroyed, killing all the crew on board.

To me this valiant attempt at rescue by the Sunbeam could be looked as in similar terms as current world religions and people groups who try to persuade people to believe anything but what is true about God, the Bible and Jesus.  They come with a message full of a different Jesus or no Jesus at all the results are the same—it’s all done in the effort to deny, suppress or ignore who God really is and the reality of our sinful offense against God Himself.

Hope

As there should be in any great game, there is a hope in Subnautica but it has nothing to do with God, Jesus or the Bible.  A large sea creature called the Sea Emperor and something known as Enzyme 42 is where you will find this hope. The Sea Emperor is the only source of Enzyme 42 and ends up dying while her young hatch and save the planet (and you).  They hold the cure to saving the infected planet.

In real life, God is the only one who can save mankind from coming judgment against sin.  God paid the penalty of our breaking His law through Jesus Christ.  Jesus, God manifest in the flesh, took the punishment for sin by dying on a cross.  While we cannot fully understand God’s sacrifice for our sin or what He went through and the love He has for us (since He’s God and we’re not) we do know he rose again after three days.  Jesus’ in completing the payment for sin was raised from the grave which ultimately  demonstrated His love for all who believe in Him. So Jesus defeated death (punishment in hell), sin and judgment for all who repent and trust in Him.  Do you know where you are going after you die?

 

He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.   (Isaiah 53:3-6)

Is Transport Fever a good game?

Transport_Fever_open.png

Is the game Transport Fever any good?  Is it for you? Let’s find out.

The year is 2000 and you watch as your stage-coach from 1875 comes rolling into town just past the electric tram. Your fully loaded stage of 4 passengers stops at the airport as the 747 Airline to Dallas is just taking off. Why? Because you can in Transport Fever!

Is this game perfect? Nothing rarely is but if you enjoy Cities Skylines or SimCity you just might really like Transport Fever even more.

The not-so-good (probably)

Before I mention all that’s good about Transport Fever, let’s get some of the basics, technically speaking, out-of-the-way that could be considered negatives with this game.

Tycoon Game?

Users have mentioned that Transport Fever is not a true transport tycoon game because there is no competition with other networks.  You are alone in this game as you build your networks and try not to go broke in the process (unless you are using the no cost mod of course).

Learning Curve

There is a learning curve in Transport Fever but it’s mostly due to a somewhat poor designed menu system that appears to be a bit out dated IMO.  The fonts in the menus are also smaller than they need to be which can make general navigating a daunting task until you get used to what the options do and where they are located.  You will also encounter some redundancy in menu options which can be quite confusing at first. For example, opening up the new line option can be done by clicking on multiple locations.  (Note: Fonts can be scaled larger in the settings menu (upper right) but doing this enlarges the bottom task bar and other menus to something too large for my liking!)

Laying Train Tracks

Generally track laying in Transport Fever is fun but sometimes you will find the track (and roads) do not want to go where you want them to due to uneven and height variations in terrain.  Using the in-game terrain height overlay option can help.  (It is located in the bottom right menu.)  Helpful note: A flat terrain works best for track laying but mountains and hills are fun and challenging maps to play.  

If your computer CPU and GPU are not very powerful, like mine, your frame-rate will suffer on larger maps and in later years when more transportation networks are working at the same time.    (My system: AMD Phenom II 945 x4, 8gb ram, GTX 750ti 4gb)

YouTube Gameplay of Transport Fever can help when you are just starting out or anytime

I highly recommend watching YouTube videos of basic gameplay and read about the game in the steam community for Transport Fever. (On YouTube I suggest Skye Storme or Colonel Failure as great places to start.)

 

The Good

 

A little bit like a Virtual Model Railroad

Create Virtual Transport Networks to watch the trains (boats, and planes)

Transport Fever features virtually unlimited track manipulation for creating a simple model rail system. Don’t want to mess with the mechanics of transporting all the goods?  In Transport Fever you don’t have to.  Want to transport only food? You can.  If you just want to transport people from various cities and watch your towns grow, you can do that too.  And with the no cost mod enabled you can create rail lines, ship lines and air transport lines galore.  While Transport Fever can be a great sandboxy type game for laying rail, it is not a very realistic virtual model railroad because you do not have as much control over your trains as you would in a real model rail layout.  Also, Important to note you cannot drive the train but you can ride along with it.   Note that in later years, a better computer system will be desired to fully enjoy your extensive transportation network. 

Graphics and Optimization

Transport Fever looks and plays better than Cities Skylines and I have an old machine (AMD Phenom II 945 x4, 8gb ram, GTX 750ti 4gb) until you get into the later years especially on the larger map sizes.

Sound

There are lots of sounds in this game. Some are wonderful and some can get downright annoying and repetitive (I’m thinking of the default airport, birds and train stations). But guess what? If you enjoy tweaking game files, (back up originals first) you can remove or even change certain sounds in the sounds folder. (HINT: There is a silence.wav sound which I found came in handy if you simply desire, silence. )

No Cost Mod and No End Year Mod

The Cost option comes included with the game and it makes Transport Fever the ultimate model railish transport sandbox. Enjoy laying train tracks, roads, airports? Lay them at your heart’s content and why not put in multiple tunnels underground or a giant bridge across the lake, because you can.
The game also includes a NO END YEAR mod so you can use that Stage Coach in 2047 and beyond.

Mods

This game uses community mods and they make an already great game expandable. The creators of these models and mods are truly talented artists!

I will list many of mods I use here that I believe are essential to have a great sandbox experience in Transport Fever.   (Note: As I live the USA, I enjoy mostly American looking models)

One of my favorite collections featuring Santa Fe and BNSF

A big thank you to the creators of these great models, skins and mods!

 

Conclusion

Learning curve, room for improvement? yes and yes but I highly recommend this game for the beautiful trams, stage coaches, trains, the sounds, the planes, the trucks, the endless train tracks and the fantastic working mods and models found on the Steam Workshop…….

As always feel free to ask if you need some basic help with Transport Fever and I will try to point you in the right direction.

Is there an anti-Dodger, pro SF Giant bias with the creators of the MLB schedules?

dodgers_giants

Is there an anti-Dodger, Pro SF Giant bias with the creators of the MLB scheduling?

The MLB baseball schedule for the Los Angeles Dodgers has been released for 2019. And the Dodgers once again will end their year playing away from home in San Francisco against if you didn’t know already their arch-enemy Giants.   Coincidence? Let’s take a look.

Pop Quiz.  When was the last time the Dodgers ended their regular scheduled playing season in their home-park?  Answer: Four years ago.  And when was the last time the Dodgers had home field advantage and ended their year in their own ballpark playing their arch rival the SF Giants?  Answer: Six years ago in 2012.  Six years ago?  Coincidence? I think not.

Once again in 2019 the Dodgers will end their year playing baseball away from home (without home-field advantage) in San Francisco as they will this year in 2018. The Dodgers will have spent three of the last four years playing the Giants in San Francisco and four of the last six years playing away from home.  Coincidence? They’re sure are many.

Clearly the creators of the MLB Schedule favor the Giants otherwise they would have seen the Dodgers end their regular playing schedule at home to play another team or play the Giants at home.  Of course the Dodgers begin the year as they have many years before playing the Giants at home when it doesn’t really count for either team.  Coincidence? Maybe just anti-Dodger bias from the creators of the MLB baseball schedule.  I’m sure Giants fans will be happy with it—until we beat them in their own ball-park again.

Facebook Censors Republican Elizabeth Heng

The advertisement you see above is by Republican Elizabeth Heng and has been blocked by Facebook.  Why? Because censorship of Conservatives, Christians and Republicans is becoming the new norm for Democrats and people who don’t want the masses to know what is true.

Facebook Bias and Censorship

Facebook has been known to favor the left in America.  They are not favorable to Christians or Conservatives in general.  Our worldview, specifically a biblical one, is in direct conflict and opposition with the worldview on the left.

Censorship of Republicans and Christians might be the latest attempt by the left to try to suppress the truth about God or Conservative idealogy but Rush Limbaugh has recently offered to explain conservatism to Mark Zuckerberg. Read it here.

Is Subnautica Overrated?

subnautica

Is Subnautica an overrated game?  Of course.  Despite poor optimization, massive texture pop-in, and inexplicable frame-rate drops, Subnautica gets promoted as one of the best games in existence.

Is Subnautica a fun game? The short answer is yes.  But I cannot ignore the seemingly random frame drops and studders regardless of the graphic settings.

Subnautica also has another (albeit most likely unintentional) feature most people might not realize.  Intentional or not, Subnautica might just well share some allegorical tones with Christianity.  Let’s take a closer look.

Important to note: What follows contains spoilers

Subnautica is an underwater survival game in which you, the player, have crash landed on an alien planet.  The planet is filled with alien sea creatures–some scary and some cute and friendly while others are downright deadly.

In a similar way, the earth we live on is filled with people, some of which are hostile to others, mean and outright murderous.  And still many people are genuinely nice, friendly and trustworthy.  For a Christian, we know the hostility many face is because of our simple belief and trust in the God of the Bible—namely Jesus Christ.
