Re: There is no YOU to die or be born.

There is no YOU to die or be born. Then YOU won't mind if people kill YOU. :wink: You missed the irony, perhaps. There is, in your view, no YOU to be killed, but also no YOU to resent someone trying. There is no YOU to have a right not to be murdered, and no murder, since no YOU was killed. There w...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

All wars were religious. Really? Nobody ever fought for any reason but religion? WW1, 2, The Vietnam War, the American, French, Cuban, Russian and Chinese Revolutions? The American Civil War, The Cambodia, Korea, the Cold War, the Punic Wars, The Opium War, The War of the Roses, The Battle of Blenh...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

You still cannot see you have deliberately and rhetorically changed and deflect the subject from atrocities [by any means, massacres] to specificaly religious-wars. Hogwash. "Atrocities" is a very vague term. But if you prefer to pretend "massacres" is better, you'll find that even more religious g...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

The ultimate authority of theistic religions is grounded on the respective holy book. However, the arguments I gave you in my message did not rely on that at all. They were just statistics and facts that anybody could find out. You have changed the subject from the original point; No. I just didn't...

Re: Can a man really turn into a woman?

What is the root cause of this disharmony and hostility ? The answer is cultural Marxism which includes Critical Theory, Radical and Socialist feminism, philosophical movements like postmodernism which have overwhelmed schools and Colleges in the US, relativist social constructivism and so on. In a...

I'm a deist. My god has issued no marching orders, so there's nuthin' for me to obey, and no deific punishment to fear.

Re: Individualism vs. Collectivism

What you are describing are physical characteristics of organisms, not the life of those organisms. I agree. But then we'd better say what we mean by "describing life." Because most scientific explanations are not what we are looking for, then. Yes! That is really my point. Because life itself is n...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

While we don't know how many people the Catholic Crusades killed, the wildest and most anti-Catholic estimates by Atheist apologists never exceed single-digit millions...that is, from 1 to 9 million at the most extreme, including all dead on any side by any cause whatever, including disaster, disea...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

If someone believes there is a God, then he/she is compelled to obey in fear of punishment. Not at all. It's not automatic that if a person believes in God, he or she is going to think "punishment" instantly. Why would that follow? One would also have to have some apprehension of one's own sin, and...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

Without relying on the basis of a personal contract with God to comply with the contracted terms in the holy books, your arguments are full of holes and cannot produce a checkmate conclusion. You've failed to notice that NONE of my arguments above relies AT ALL on anything about or from holy books....

Re: Islam Means Peace?

Both statistically and theologically untrue. Sorry. It just is. Religious wars, in total, have killed about 8% of all the war dead. Of those, half (4%) have been killed by wars generated in the name of the "Religion of Peace," Islam. Of the remaining 4%, all other religions are combined...Hinduism,...

What do you think, IC? Well, my dog is an idiot until I have a treat in my hand -- at which time, he's a Rhodes Scholar, and can calculate pi to sixteen digits.
