The issue here seems to be that the game makes mention of Greek mythology and therefore idiology. Apparently his mom feels that by playing that game he'll be "led down the wrong path." It's because of things like that that I happen to be against organized religion on general principle, but that's an entirely different discussion. But as I said in my other post on this subject you just can't get through to some people because they see themselves and their views as being right and anyone who even slightly deviates from their viewpoint is "wrong." It's truly sad that we can be so unbending even towards members of our own family, especially over something so commonplace as a computer game, but it's unfortunately true.
I want you...to go upstairs...and kill that boy!

Hello, Nicol. That is not very great. It's only a game, so you shouldn't have to be punished just for playing games like this. My parents let me play whatever games I want as long as it doesn't have swearing in it. ----- Original Message ----- From: "nicol" <0722001...@vodamail.co.za>

Subject: [Audyssey] mota


Hi tom and  all
I'm desperately needing advice. my mom got a fit when she saw me reading an e-mail with regards to mota. I assured her that I will not play games on her computer which is against her principles. you see I belong to the religion:
jehovah's witnesses.
they believe that playing certain games like games containing violence or
the supernatural is sin.they refuse to accept it that a game is only a game.
when my mom saw the word tomb hunter she immediately asked me: what is a
tomb son?
its where dead people is.
so she assumes mota has to do with the dead and therefore its a sin to play
mota.
I told her what tom had told us, that mota is based on greek myths and
legends.
so my mom replied: exactly, so this game you want to play has something to
do with idolatry.
how on earth can I explain to my mom that mota is not a harmfull game.
she doesn't want me to play the game on my pc as well.
of course its my pc and I'm adult and she can't decide for me but she will continuously nag or put the elders on me until I listen to them and I like
mota, I'm not going to listen to them.
I'm going to purchase mota.
in the past elders confiscated music on my computer violently by pulling me away from my computer. my mom hates sod just as much, she feels sod is also
a sin to play.
but tom I would like your 2 cents view on this matter.
can you or others tell me why the jehovah witnesses view games like mota as
a sin and is mota really sin to play?
thanks
