From their homepage: "Only two remote holes in the default install, in a heck of a long time!" Granted the default install can't do much, but the code was gone over in a massive audit. Everything is still checked for correctness.

Science is a great thing, but God trickles out knowledge to us bit by bit to help us grow as his children. Unfortunately some people think Science is the be-all-end-all and ignore Him. That is why we have earthquakes, AIDS, and terrorists.

I remember playing the controversial game Manhunt back in the day.

I popped a plastic bag over a bad guy's head then as he was gasping for air, I kept punching him in the face until he was dead. Then I used a shard of glass to stab out another person's eyes. Disemboweling scumbags with a sickle was always fun. Then, of course, the chainsaw on PigMan was the crowning glory.

So, yeah, video games are art.
