GHX Ep. 9 Addendum: That Dragon, Cancer

with one comment

After the comments shared on Gaming History X Episode 9, particularly in regards to the That Dragon, Cancer discussion, Eric felt more needed to be said especially from a different perspective.  We feel that all perspectives should be given equal opportunity to speak up, so Fred and Eric delve into the criticisms leveled at the game, it’s religious content, and the developer’s response to its sales.  The conversation goes a bit longer than necessary, but we felt it was worthwhile to keep unedited.  Note: Unlike most episodes, this show does not contain adult language.

  1. I reject completely the idea that any “opinion” has any right whatsoever to be respected. This is a problem today. If something is wrong, and no facts support it – guess what? It’s WRONG. No opinion in the world overrides that.

    So no, we don’t have to accept or respect fantasy bullshit, any more than someone saying they believe unicorns are real, or the Moon landings were faked. Facts are facts. What was a fact in this case? The parents helped. The doctors helped. The nurses and other hospital staff helped. In tangible, real ways. Give them the credit they deserve. Don’t give it to a nice fairytale made up in ignorance of science thousands of years ago, from earlier still tales (Mithra, Horus, etc). Science helped in a real, tangible, measurable way, in this case. Those doctors and other professionals weren’t using magic and “faith”. They were using facts and science and things that are based ONE HUNDRED PERCENT in REALITY to try to prevent a thing that this fantasy god – in their own belief – has to have “allowed” to happen “because reasons”. Or “could have”. If it existed.
