Dear Funeralxempire, your signature is superb. Simply superb. :mrgreen: Thank you. If only it was original. :P Muhammad and Jesus both taught that only one god exists. But Muhammad openly rejected the God of Christians (Trinity) and even today Moslems regularly trample each other to death in their ...

Yes christians and conservatives do not do anything to perpetuate the image, or give the impression there is a lot of bigotry among them....its all just liberal lies and deceit :roll: Conservative misbehaviour is really part of a liberal conspiracy to make conservatives look bad. It's never the con...

Atheism (yes when included it's in first place to me) Governments run by them are responsible for the deaths of many tens of millions since the beginning of the 20th century with a massive slew of human rights violations. As a Floridian I don't live far from a living example of it. In second place ...

I think that decreasing the voting age to underage kids would be like enabling people who happen to be parents to vote twice or more. That's kind of like saying 'letting women vote is like enabling married men to vote twice'. While it may be true in some cases, an uninformed child (or spouse) may v...

Disputing with and criticizing others for expressing bigoted opinions doesn't deny them their right to express said opinions. Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from your speech being criticized and condemned by others using their freedom of speech. How do you feel about cases like Brendan Eich...

There's nothing ironic about not accepting other's intolerance. Refusing to challenge intolerance is effectively condoning it. No liberty for the enemies of liberty, eh? How does not accepting someones intolerance opposed to liberty exactly? I don't see how you got that out of it. I guess people th...

There are Christian groups that are somewhat equal to ISIS, mainly the ones in Uganda who push their homophobic views onto everyone and execute people who are gay, lesbian or transgender. Not to mention this started when evangelical Christians in the United States wanted to pass similar laws but we...

Do you have any sources?


They didn't.
I posted several though, if you look.

To the contrary, I think voting should be compulsory. If you'd like to do that, you best make sure 'None of the above' is an option on the ballot. No, not unless we also change the rules so that a candidate MUST take 51% of the vote to win. If we do that, alright. I'm not sure where I stand on that...

No. If you're old enough to fight and die for your country, you're old enough to vote. Instead, require people to pass a battery of IQ, science, history, economics, civics, math, and language tests in order to vote. Also, bar religious nuts from voting or even running for office as their beliefs ar...

Islam is the most damaging, no doubt about it. It is more of a threat than Christianity, but that's like saying that a tiger is more dangerous than a shark. Continuing this analogy... Tthe tiger is more dangerous (overall) than the shark, but most of the western, liberal, secular humanist-leaning f...

I can no more will myself to believe in a deity, or anything else mystical, than I can will myself to believe that two plus two makes five. If I find myself in some kind of theocracy, where the irreligious are punished, I will feign whatever belief will keep me from being murdered. But I will be jo...

Even the Buddhists in Burma and Sri Lanka hate Islam. So much so they engage in pogroms against the Muslims. Damn Muslims, always causing problems, even when they're the victims. How in the holy hell would Buddhism bring problems to the world? The notion that it even could baffles me. http://en.wik...
