Re: Am I crazy?

Well what most people do is if they don't get on in one reality is escape to another. There is a world of possibilities out there, you could lose yourself in the world of Sci fi/Comic conventions, join a communist party, get obsessed with animal rights, live an alternative lifestyle, become a Buddhi...

Re: Any Religion that Teaches Faith is a Virtue is Evil

As you say 2 + 2 = 4 in a decimal system but 10 in a base 4 system. It takes a special kind of idiot to disprove his own arguments in proof that he was using to support them in the first place. Almost as bigger idiot as someone who comes to a philosophy forum to talk crap because his lack of underst...

Re: Any Religion that Teaches Faith is a Virtue is Evil

"The only ones who think it exists"? That's an odd claim. The fact is that religious people who believe faith is a virtue have no concern for the truth. There is a saying, "To the extent faith is possible, it is irrational. To the extent faith is rational, it is impossible." Faith requires that rea...

Re: all muslims are the same

I don't give a rats ass about Israel/Palestine conflict. I just don't want to see America dragged into another was in that region.It's pretty evident how the all powerful Jewish lobby in Washington is inducing America into a war with Iran. Very difficult to get dragged in when you're already there ...

Not true, there are religions based on sex and at least one in ancient Greece based on mathematics, there was even one in the 19th century based on science.

Re: Any Religion that Teaches Faith is a Virtue is Evil

The limitation on biological research alone affects you. Cures are put on indefinite hold as we have to appease the religious in their false beliefs about a soul existing in a cluster of cells that possess no consciousness. Lines of medical research based on evolution are not always followed up on ...

Re: Any Religion that Teaches Faith is a Virtue is Evil

We know, for example, that evolution is a fact; yet, many faithful would rewrite evolution out of our science books and replace it with some "intelligent design" pseudoscience. I agree evolution should be banned in the USA and creationism taught to children as fact. It is a unique cultural heritage...

Re: what is the big deal about the dalai lama

Support for what Tibet was under Lama's is support for monarchy, feudalism, slavery and religious autocracy. However it must be remembered the support for him comes mostly from liberals and conservatives while there is considerable opposition to him on the left With Liberals it seems to be just anot...

Re: will Islam become the dominant religion?

Christianity isn't in decline, quite the opposite, it's been in growth for considerable time now. It's secularism that's in decline. All the statistics are against you. Yes, the population is increasing, but the proportion of non-christians is growing faster than christians. What statistics would t...

Re: all muslims are the same

I agree with Grendel. It is obvious that Romney would readily start a war with Iran and he continually ridicules the President's Middle East policies and in particular the abandonment of of Israel. He is a Morman and he thinks this qualifies him as a latter-day Jew in latter-day American Israel and...

Bringing in Sam Harris in support one side is about as balanced and has as much credibility of bringing Abu Hamza to support the other.

Re: all muslims are the same

That's most likely an identical response a Nazi would have made when someone criticised their country. But I offer empirical support for my claim. Just read the posts above mine, pretty much shows it's true.
