    Today I was at the Mind Body Spirit event in Mansfield, and I noticed, on one of the stalls selling runestones, a very interesting rune. It was Algiz, the defence rune. Here it is:

    I never knew before, but this looks like the peace sign, just upside down and without a circle! D'you reckon thats one of the factors that led to the peace sign, its anti-defence?

    Just something to ponder on...

    while looking it up; i found some christian page saying how evil peace symbol is: you might want to see that; http://www.nisbett.com/symbols/peace_sign.htm
    I, personally, think it's stupid to seek evil in ANYthing. Don't kill me for that. There might be some link between those two things, who knows?

    wow... kinda sad that something that is supposed to be positive and stand for peace, is thought of by many as "evil"...

    go on User CP and then select avatar. You can upload it or just give them a link. It works either way(however, it must be under 16kb and under 70 pixels width and height).
    EDIT: here's a link http://www.hipforums.com/forums/profile.php?do=editavatar

    I think the option might only be available to HipForums Supporters (i.e. you have to donate).

    seems like you've managed to do it! Now your turn; how did you get that 'in complete harmony' thing?
    EDIT: Never mind; i've figured it out

    okay, I do not find that site credible, because a) there is no Hebre letter "van" and b) the "vulcan sign" is not satanist, it was used for the Cohen blessing (the blessing the ancient Jewish priests used)
     
  14. I was with my friend today and she was talking about how some anti-American country back however long ago made up the peace sign in order to enrage our country. They thought it would cause an uproar because people here were anti-peace. I found this interesting but I don't know if I believe it.

    it is stupid to seek out the evils of something...everything has "evil" in it to some extent probably...so for the people who own nothing but a bible and rock back and forth churning their minds everynight trying to dissect everything to the last "evil" drop...a word of advice: "GET A LIFE!!!"

    I've heard that the peace sign is supposedly a cross with broken "arms"....

  18. That's kinda weird. I don't have a problem with the peace sign. Heck, I even wear a peace necklace everyday!
