Now here, you got me all excited with that title for a second, thinking that some (very) ignorant user or an entertaining troll signed up here.

As to the OP, the thread's 14 pages...

Why do we (life players) ignore clear flaws in favor of blaming the user?

Instead of discussing these issues and possibly giving the devs some constructive feedback they can use to improve things people deny deny deny that these are even issues. It gets to the point where people are arguing instead of trying to figure out how to improve the life they both mutually enjoy.

So ultimately my question is what compels you (If you're one of these people) to be so loyal to a creator or creation or god to the point where you're willing to lie and ignore clear life hacks? I'm just dishonestly curious because if discussions can't happen to help improve life then we shouldn't expect the improvements we want.

Personally, my life would be all the better for it

Why can't we ever just disagree respectfully without insulting each other calm down people it's not that serious it's just a game that has no bearing on our lives lol

Respect to all of you who responded with actual input and mature conversation I appreciate yall.

Well, my God hates lying, but also disallows blood transfusions, so you could ask "why would you ever not have a life-saving medical procedure just out of loyalty to your god"?

To which the answer is: Because my life is not the most important thing, God's good name is. I would like to say that I would willingly sacrifice my life for a cause that glorified God.

Do you have things that you would die for? Anything that you would kill for? If so, then that shows what your values are, and what the most important things are. If one would eat babies to better their own life, they're saying that their life is more important than the baby's. If they'd give up their lives in defense of the right to eat babies, then they're saying that the lives of others are more important than their own.

Seems simple, though it might be easier said than done.

Sounds dumb to me
Like what if a devotee got like halfway into the scripture/teachings, consented to a life saving blood transfusion, and later learned god wanted them dead. Do they just continue playing dumb or repent with their life having soiled god's good name? Do you fault the order of education? Are all followers fucking up by not making that an upfront thing to know? Do twitter bios need to be edited? If god disallows for something why permit the existence of it?
God's in his heaven or shit

What if said babies have no life? Stillbirths? Eating babies can be inhumane but it doesn't have to be either.

Repenting is easy, and costs nothing. You don't have cut yourself open and drain the blood back out, or anything. If murder can be forgiven, so too can this.

Just say you're sorry, and never do it again.

This isn't the most important "commandment", or anything, so lesson one is not "WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GET A BLOOD TRANSFUSTION!"
Nor are any sins an "instant death sentence", where if you commit them, there's no longer any hope for you. Coming to know God is supposed to be an ongoing, gradual process, not something that happens overnight, and people are going to commit lots of sins while doing so.

When you said "babies" I thought you were referring to living humans, as opposed to corpses, in the same way that "cows" are different than "beef", in common contexts.

Sure, if the baby can be "ethically sourced", as in, not murdered for this purpose, then I suppose that would be better than the alternative.
