Also stupid\foolish\crazy ideologies almost kill us all. Remember Nazis or Soviets? Sov. almost begin the third world war a few times and they had a lot of A-Bombs and Nazis almost made one in 1945. Bad ideologies are also bad things that still remains among us. :S
While I hate the fact bill Mahar is an avid anti vaccine advocate. He does make one good point. Mankind has developed the means for our own obliteration before we outgrew our death wish desire. Aka religion.
Heh cute rage comic but thats not what i meant Its not beliefs that kill people, people can believe or not, whatever is fine Its the separation between people - Those ideas that they should conquer rather than work together Its that - That will kill us all.
no you need to know the difference between religion and ideals verses stark raving lunatics. Most christian religions are good and decent, Westboros on the other hand take all the teachings we've learned and wipe their asses with it saying that they know shit with out how they defile their own religion
because everything is not always what it seems. a vast (and I do mean vast) majority of religions do not condougn this kind of stuff. extremeists are usually part of some cult that has some similarities to more major religions, but they are differnet and their religious practices should not be used to represent the rest of us. I mean I wouldn't use scumbag atheist to represent all atheists cause thats offensive and wrong of me and I oughtta know its wrong. Same with muslims, just because there are a few terrorists doesn't mean the whole religion blesses this, in fact they say it's blasphmous to Allah (god). These kind of superficial religious nuts are preaching lessons that their own founding religion says not to, so these guys are an afront to religion. you can say people will blow up the planet with nukes. But I take it personally when people bunch the rest of us good natured, honest religious persons with there nut cases and liers who claim to be "our" religion when in fact, they teach the very things we tell them not to teach.
I don't assume people who are religious to be extremists, but extremists to be religious. The world will see more harm in the future and whenever it happens, the person in question will be fanatically believing in something. It will be blind to the pain.
The last I checked the last country to use the atom bomb were Americans on Japan and that happened less than 75 yrs ago due to a conflict totally unrelated to religion... Not to side step the atrocities committed in the name of religion but many were done a long time ago. For all intents and purposes to fit the modern culture it would seem that power hungry countries and the destructive nature of weaponology would be the downfall of the human race.
It's not the religions that are hate-mongering violent cults. It's hate-mongering violent people that take things just a liiiiiitttle too far that are. Or else I interpreted the crusades and the spanish inquisition totally wrong. Either/or.
Yes, cause clearly those massacres happened not for any real reason but because the people involved were religious. And I'm sure these historical happenings totally prove JJ's pretentious atheist bullshit point that all people of all religions are going to destroy the world and kill everyone.
just gotta point out that anyone could destroy the world, including atheist. JJ did a bit on how north korea acts tough with dicky bombs (though they are real). North Korea is run by atheists. Don't misconstrue, not all atheists are madmen bent on world destruction, only a very small percent, the rest are just average everyday atheists who just want to go about their day and not set the world on fire. Im not defending the atrocities committed in the name of religion, I just don't like it when people assume it will be religious people, not the psychos that would do it.
so to recap don't hate atheists, just saying anyone could destroy the world for any number of reasons, its not just the religious psychos
But the joke kind of loses it's kick when you have to get specific. So let's just sit back and do what Americans do best; have a harm(less) laugh at someone else's expense.
Besides, that's just the kind of person Jollyjack is; if he's not riling everyone up into a frothing, rabid lynch mob, he's not doing his job right. It's like he subsists off of rage; it's a little alarming.
