Are "American Values" based in the Bible?

Khaz

In what way, if at all, are the fundamental principles of the US based in the Bible? My position is that the Bible doesn't really form the basis of American laws, but I'm willing to reconsider. The contender can use the first round to make his or her case, and in that way have both the first and the last word on the topic. I look forward to a friendly debate. ...

While this may be premature, I'd still like to test whether this is true or whether I'm just not competent enough to see the val...

Team Fortress 2 is better than and other FPS

NotMyActualName.exe

Honestly, Team Fortress 2 (from now, I will call it TF2) is better than Call of Duty, Halo, any other generic FPS game. It's different, unique, and fun. It's team-based, with classes that have a personality of their own. And I can see why COD players hate it. It's a general rule that if your good at one FPS, your skill would most likely transfer well another. Not on TF2. Not even close. And this is because of weaknesses. Each class has them, and COD players hate them. And I hate this fact so muc...
