^ I don't understand this attitude either. If you are an athiest or agnostic, then by all means say so. Support it even. But there is no need, no call to belittle others who have a different opinion nor to belittle the belief. At the end of the day, no one has proof one way or the other. Its all belief.

Why on earth would we, the union workers give up our rights? Follow the money. Who benefits from union-busting? Business. Who supports business? Politicians who want money from Business.

^Too bad the human mind doesn't actually work like that.

I know right. I never understood why Christians went around slaughtering an entire continent that didn't believe either. Now they have to put up with people being rude to them on the internet. It's so unfair.

When will these atheists realize that their non-belief is belief too. They're sooo arrogant.

What case? You've said nothing. Your recent posts are just arrogant pseudo-musings.

New Atheism has attracted a whole slew of young, impressionable, internet nerds. This is all quite similar to lolbertarianism; both have attracted the worse breed of idiots.

Lovely.
It really is quite true that the quality of PoFo's new users goes down during election season.

As for the poll, I voted Other. It is impossible to tell whether Jesus was a good person based upon the sources that we have, owing to the agendas of their various authors.

Oh I'm sorry did I offended the high quality posters such as yourself?
I mean what with that brilliant treatise you posted there.

What? The agenda was to impose Jesus "the sign" onto some hypopthetical historical character - who just happened to be around and not doing anything else that day? Jesus the sign is what Jesus the hypothetical man produced. This is why I call it impolite and ignorant - not because of obvious freaks like ped - everyone has some warped opinion which they aren't even very interested in. It's not like picking a favorite color, and the whole topic of a historical Jesus is beside the point. If you aren't and have never been a practicing Christian why would you think you know anything at all about it?

FTR, warfare is common to all people, regardless of religious belief, or lack thereof. Arabs, Moors, and Carthiginians raided and conquored European countires long before Christianity existed, and by the looks of things, its still on-going. Ghengis Khan, Caesar, and so on had little to do with Christianity, other than to wage war on them, sometime incidently, sometime intentionally.

Wars happen. Some are justifable, some are not. Either way, it doesn't justify acting like a four year old who isn't getting enough attention from the adults, so wets on the carpet to gain notice.

As to behaving rudely: That's your call. If you wish people to believe you were made with a broad vulgarian stripe, carry on. If you want people to think of you as self-controlled, mature and rational, then you might want to change your approach. Your call.

Normally I'm a great fan of your pithy wisdom Oswald, but I have to be honest this is one of your duller posts.
Arguing the rise of ISIS proves, removing Saddam was wrong, is like arguing, the rise of the KKK proves Lincoln was wrong to end slavery

I personally wouldn't say war is inherently embarrassing. So which war are you not a fan of ped?
