We could just steal the VIP dragon icon for an emoticon, too.

Emoticon Submission: :God:



Please evaluate.
Not to be rude, but I'd rather that be :pspeed: considering that calling him God is offensive to many religions, and how hard it will hit people (although it's not literal) is hard to tell. It even hurt me a little bit.

True.

Edit: or even ":creator:" would be accurate enough and at least keep to the spirit of the original intent.

It's a juxtaposition between Paul and Notch. They call Markus, "the creator" of Minecraft, a god. He's even been enshrined in his own game, as I'm sure you know. It isn't literal, any more than the red god is literal... But people don't take offense to Notch's godship or the religions of Game of Thrones. In fact, some reporting agencies have even taken to calling Notch "the god of indie gaming".

We really have to ask ourselves what "god" as a word actually means at this point. From a literal standpoint, the only condition for being a "god" is being an all-powerful entity... which, in context, is quite true for Paul.  From a less literal standpoint, and more of an evangelical one, we have to ask whether god is simply a title humans have used for this entity or if it is really a name. The christian and muslim deity, to my knowledge, never actually addresses itself as "god" anyway, the same way I don't address myself as "human being". The reality is, this term "god" is no more than a title we came up with, the same as Lord and Father, and He. The interesting effect of this lack of an actual name makes directly deprecating the christian and muslim deity... well, impossible. There's no real descriptor of this entity. In fact, when asked of his name, he said he is who he is, that he is existent, or simply put, he is.

"And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM"; and He said, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, `I AM has sent me to you.'""


Using "God's name in vain" is impossible using the written word, essentially... and I can't very well call someone THE god, when I don't even know that god's name.


... But Sheogorath is feeling generous today.

So we're at three emoticon candidates right now... I think at this point there isn't much left for us to scrape off of what we already have. Shame I'm terrible with pixel art.

Maybe we should try making playable race mockups for emoticons?

I'm so tempted to scale down a takwin and make that an emote.

It would be useful, too.
