He'd barely said that Akio had valid worries and they needed to address the situation as soon as possible before informing him that the Royal Court Representative was also from the future.Familiar Faces Ch 205 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"This guy destroys everything in the future, and he's after me?" Ichigo asked, looking more than a little shocked. "Is it 'cause I got rid of that one bad guy way back during the war you guys are always telling me about?"
"We don't know why," Urahara said, bending down and grinning one of his rare reassuring smiles at Ichigo. "But that's our best guess."
"Wait," Rukia-taichou spoke up, and glaring warily over at Akio, "If you're from the future, why can't you remember anything?"
Urahara spoke up before the future soul could. "It has to do with how he traveled into the past."

Okay, so I will now write about religion. The religion I am most familiar with (and the one everyone shoves down my throat) is Christianity. I am NOT against Christianity, actually. I am completely okay with talking and being friends with people who are Christians. However, it seems that once you tell them you are an atheist, some of them think you are a horrible Satan-worshipper and they try to 'fix' you. I realize that not all Christians are like that. I have some Christian friends that are fine with people not believing in a deity. These are things that Christians have said (the ones that push religion down your throat). I am writing this from an atheist's point of view.

Chronicles of Hyrule: The Hero and the Princess
Three years have passed since Hyrule Castle was destroyed. To this day, very few know what truly went on in Hyrule at that time. What is known among the people is this:
The world was covered with an evil spawned by Ganondorf. Monsters engulfed Hyrule. The Hero came again, as he had throughout the ages, and defeated the evil. Hyrule Castle was consumed by that darkness until the Hero came to free it. In the process, the darkness was destroyed once more. In the last great battle, the castle itself was destroyed by a powerful clash of magic, but the Hero and the Princess Zelda were victorious.
In the years that followed, the castle was rebuilt. The Hero, who had returned to his homeland in Ordon

For man's but an abuser; decadent.
The things you've done with her defy our Lord;
Avowed romance may not be your excuse.
So now we'll take that which you've most adored
And wrap around your neck a final noose.
To us, she's just a thoughtless, feeling thing;
We pay no heed, however long she screams.

We're sure you've wronged her; who cares how it seems?
And watch this, as you gasp your final breath:

Okay here goes, should be somewhat simple as I am use to speaking about my views on these issues. This may or may not be updated, and fixed at a later date because my mind is all jumbled so I will write it and then if needed edit at a later date . It more than likely will be long but we shall see.
I will start with religions.
Since this particularly person did not clarify what type of religion or belief they were referring to, I will discuss them in parts.
First I will speak of my views on the Abrahamic Faiths, which include Islam, Christianity and Judaism. I personally have no favorable view of these particular faiths; with all of the false moralities of a corrupted people. Each of their books speak of killing all who do not believe as they do, each of their books speaking of killing for a myriad of reasons that people do daily.
