Alex Jone: The brain behind Infowars

Even Glenn Back says he's a nutcase

__________

Piers Morgan said on Tuesday that his infamous encounter with radio host Alex Jones would only help his gun control crusade.

The radio host more than lost his temper with Morgan on Monday, going on a monumental rant about guns. He then speculated that he might be murdered by undercover police officers.

"I can't think of a better advertisement for gun control than Alex Jones' interview last night," Morgan told CNN on Tuesday. "It was startling, it was terrifying in parts, it was completely deluded. It was based on a premise of making Americans so fearful that they all rush out to buy even more guns ... the kind of twisted way that he turned everything into this assault on the Second Amendment is exactly what the gun rights lobby people do."

At least one person agreed that Jones was a terrible spokesman for gun rights: Glenn Beck. Speaking on his radio show Tuesday, he said that Morgan had chosen well if his intention was to discredit the pro-gun movement.

"Piers Morgan is trying to have gun control," Beck said. "He is trying to make everybody who has guns and who believes the Second Amendment to be a deterrent to an out of control government look like a madman. So now he immediately books the madman and makes him look like a conservative."

So you're saying that people have seen people evolve from rocks?
How can one statement be so wrong in so many different ways. Let me count the ways...

1. To the best of my knowledge, no evolutionary scientist has ever said that people evolved from rocks. If you have citations supporting that statement, now would be a good time to provide them.

2. If you are referring to life arising from non-living organic material, then you are talking about abiogenesis, which is a different branch of science than evolutionary biology. Abiogenesis deals with the origins of life. Evolutionary biology deals with how living things evolve over time via a process known as natural selection. Two completely different topics.

3. You don't have to witness evolution first hand to be able to review and understand the evidence that it leaves behind. Your entire argument is based on a a logical fallacy known as "Argument from Incredulity". You believe in a god of the gaps. You use the concept of god to fill in the gaps in your knowledge.

So then why do you fight science. Evolution is as close to a fact as you are going to find in science. Stop being so thick headed.

Very different. Science deals in facts. Believing a man walked on water deals with heresay and faith, which is nothing more than belief without evidence.

Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-38

Enemies of Islam represent our prophet as a very cruel and blood thirsty man, who would kill his “opponents, enemies and any one who disagreed with him” at “the drop of hat” and all his adversaries would be “terrified” at the mere sight of him.

The picture is far from true, let us look at some incidents from the life of prophet, as what was “this sword which killed the enmity for ever”

The Case of : TUFAIL BIN ‘AMR DOSSI

TUFAIL was well respected chief of DOSS clan, that lived near Yemen. Once he came to Makkah for UMRAH, that was the period when prophet had declared his mission and Makkan people had decided to warn any newcomer of the “dangers” he posed to innocent and unsuspecting foreign visitors to Makkah!

On the outskirts of Makkah TUFAIL met some Makkah people, who asked him from where he came, he introduced himself, and they warned to be careful of a “possessed man” who causes separation between husbands and wives and between fathers and sons. So much so that he put cotton in his ears, so as to not even listen the words of Prophet!

When TUFAIL entered Kaaba, he found prophet standing in one corner in prayers and reciting from Quran. TUFAIL went near and he heard some words of what prophet was reciting, but due to cotton in his ears, he was unable to hear properly.

“Oh what a fool I am” thought TUFAIL , what harm can mere words do, I will listen and decide myself, if they are good or evil. So he removed cotton from his ears and listened attentively to Quran. After finishing prayers prophet left for his home and TUFAIL followed him.

He talked to prophet and learned about the message of Islam and became his follower. Then he went to his own town and due to his efforts, his father, his wife and some of his friends. But most people of his tribe did not accept Islam. TUFAIL came to prophet and complained about their behavior and asked prophet to curse these people.

Prophet raised his hands in prayer,“Now bad time has come on DOSS Tribe” though TUFAIL. But Prophet said “O Allah guide DOSS” Two or three times. Then he asked TUFAIL to go back and invite his people to Islam in softly and with wisdom. This time most people of DOSS tribe became Muslim.

This was the “Sword of Quran” Most Potent of all Swords which people used on TUFAIL to enslave him for ever!!

Which noone has seen evolution. You can breed two animals, "pink one and a blue one " of THE SAME KIND, and get a variation of the animal. Plus humans do this "black man -white girl -you get a mixed human, but you can't breed a fish with a bird.
It does take faith, to believe in God, that's how He set it up.

I reiterate, why did God not reveal Himself to the American Indians (America being the new world)? There were also many others who didn't get the memo. Why? Why theJews? Why the Arabs? Why the Romans?
But there WAS Divine revelation to all of those groups. Oh, not all heard the same God, but then why would they? They all had their own Deities.

As usual, you have created a caricature of what evolution actually says and pretend that you have shown it false. Sadly, all that you really do in such circumstances is demonstrate you ignorance of science.

The saddest part is that evolution and believe in a Deity are not mutually exclusive. The only thing that evolution proves is that a literal belief in the creation myths of Genesis are no longer realistic.

This forum is like a swingers party. Instead of sex, we have "intellectual" exchanges. Single partners, multiple partners, even if you dont like your partner you are likely back for more after other experiences.
Hows that for unflattering imagery?
I figured that a captive audience was the main reason. Yeah, especially in this geographic area. Not too many people are interested in much. A swinger's party. Now you have brought the conversation down to my level. Hehehheh. Really, how do you know about swinger's parties?

Obama is not interested in suspending your 2nd amendment rights. He is too dependent on the amount of taxes that he collects from gun sales. The hype around the second amendment and obama making an executive order is nothing more than a good marketing ploy to get people to buy more guns. The threat alone has had a serious impact on prices. People are paying top dollar for guns right now, so if you got a pile, make some money. Obama isn't taking anything. He makes way too much money off the taxes. They may use these unfortunate incidents as excuses to raise taxes on gun sales. Anything to raise more tax money.

I truly don't care how stupid you think I am, in which I will agree that I'm not very smart on evolution, but I know enough to know, that evolution as most know it, and is taught in school, is about long ago and far far away, this and that happened, and folks like you believe it. Yet as far fetched as that is, you refuse to believe God created all things. He even created man (which creates all that is seen) nothing has ever been seen evolving. Not one monkey has turned into a man.

Evolution has not showed the creation story to be false at all.
Maybe you would like to explain where we all started and how we became who we are?

We have a soul
We are physical -spirit -soul.

People want to build their own god, and many have gave into the evolution theory, and tried to make the bible "fit " what it says.

Even when I was lost and thought God was a myth, I still never bought the millions or billions of years story.

It is kinda amazing what has took place in just the last 100 years or so.
It must have took billions of years, before we kicked in?

The smart scientist were concerned about the moon landing in the 60's.
the had fiquered maybe 6 feet of moon dust, after the fiquered how old the moon was. This is why He took such a "LEAP " off the ladder. Turns out, there was only a couple inches of dust.
Kinda like a moon that was only a few thousand years old.

Yet, when people tell you this, you will find a way to explain it away, in your evolutionary puzzle.

It's no wonder soo many people act like animals, since they're being taught that they are one.
