Atheism provides no direction. Do you understand what that means to your argument?All you gotta do is look at atheist leaders from the last century and you have your answer. Atheist leaders have killed more in the last century than religion has in the history of man.
Who said it was Minority Report?No. This isn't Minority Report. People should not be killed for a belief. Sam Harris wouldn't want to be executed for his beliefs, would he?
If you know what someone believes, if they believe you deserve to die, that is a relevant and actionable piece of information, if they're pointing a gun at you.
I don't have the rules of engagement handy, but I'm pretty sure the only requirement that needs to be met is identifying a person as Al Qaeda. They don't get a trial or inquiry.Wrong. The US is not hunting down jihadists for their beliefs, we're hunting them down for their actions.
I'll point out your dichotomous nature any time it's relevant.Except for the unneeded slander, I agree with you. Killing should be the last resort.
So you disagree with capital punishment, stand your ground laws, and killing in defense of property?
