Review: "Pyramids 2" - Nintendo 3DS

Reviewed by Luke for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 72/100

Like everyone else affiliated with Family Friendly Gaming I am big into the physical copy movement. I love cartridges and discs. Cartridges are usually better than discs because they almost always load faster. With that out of the way, I like Pyramids 2.

 

Interview: Beth Wiseman, Author of "The Promise"

Most authors draw from life experience when writing a book. However, for bestselling author Beth Wiseman, the inspiration for The Promise (Thomas Nelson/ September 30, 2014/ISBN 978-1401685959 /$15.99) came from encounters most readers could never imagine happening in their own lives.

The Promise introduces readers to Mallory Hammond, a young woman who takes a dangerous journey to Pakistan, fueled by her adventurous spirit and her desire to save a life. Instead, promises are broken, her life is put at risk, and all she can do is pray she'll make it out alive. Mallory's character was closely modeled after someone close to the author, and Wiseman herself was actively involved with bringing her safely home.

 

"Creation is not scientific because it is ‘religious’"

Arguments Evolutionists should not make!

Intelligent design or creation are not scientific because they are ‘religious’. All views of origins have religious implications and religious (or philosophical, if you like) presuppositions of one form or another are at their core. ‘Nature is all there is, no matter what the evidence’ (naturalism) is just as much a religious position as believing that there is a super-natural realm as well. A leading anti-creationist philosopher admitted that evolution is a religion. Indeed, naturalistic philosophy constrains our origins to only material causes, whereas the Christian approach allows for both natural causes and supernatural causes, according to the evidence. The former must therefore be the narrow-minded, blinkered, approach. As the ‘rules’ of science are now defined, creation is forbidden as a conclusion—even if true. And here is an amazing admission that no matter what the evidence, only materialistic explanations are allowed.

I loved Poptropica Forgotten Islands on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. It was so much fun, and it has received updates. Ubisoft has now ported Poptropica Forgotten Islands over to the Nintendo 3DS, and give us 3D. Unless you play it on the Nintendo 2DS. There is no 3D allowed on that hand held.

From humble beginnings in the Land Down Under, Planetshakers Band has grown in scale and scope to reach a generation spanning countries and continents, and they’re on a mission to inspire that generation to do the same.

Most people obsess over the home console versions of Skylanders. While I find the home console versions fun, the hand held version on the Nintendo 3DS is where I prefer to spend my time. Why? The storyline is different, and the included Skylanders are different.

Leaving Limbo is a surprisingly fabulous movie! The story line looked mildly interesting in the trailer, but when I watched the actual film, I couldn’t walk away from it. This movie has all the elements of a good romantic comedy and a thought-provoking drama tucked neatly inside a unique plot premise.

The film “Do You Believe?” comes from the same people behind “God’s Not Dead,” one of the highest ranking Christian movies of all time that hit theaters earlier this year.

"23 Blast": Blind Faith

by Melinda Ledman, Contributing Writer for ChristianCinema.com

Honestly, I didn’t expect much from 23 Blast. “Just another football movie,” I thought. And it’s probably badly done like most sports movies (even the big Hollywood studio ones). There have only been a handful of really great football flicks in my book: Remember the Titans, Friday Night Lights, Any Given Sunday, and an honorable mention to The Longest Yard. Though 23 Blast doesn’t add a fourth football to my Mount “Rush”more of great sports films, it comes very, very close.

The epiglottis is the flap of cartilage that closes as you swallow preventing food from entering the trachea ("wind pipe"). After the food passes into your esophagus the epiglottis opens again. When you talk or laugh while eating the epiglottis may stay open letting some food in and causing you to cough or choke.

How many "ape-men" died before getting this right? There was no room for trial and error. Evolution makes NO logical sense whatsoever..
