Argo lied. It said the UK wouldn't help, which is BS.

I'm sure Argo will be another fun bit of Hollywood floss.
I don't see why I should miss out just because Argo is inaccurate.

Morally therefore, I should pirate the movie.

As I see you are ill informated about what is going on at the UN. You think your silly arguments means anything to those who want to impose islamic law on everyone? As I said, with your myopic mind set atheists will lose the fight.
Iran wants to sue Hollywood over Argo. Ha, I hear no comments from the liberals in Hollywood who always scream islamphobia. Go ahead scream islamphobia as your rights are slowly taken away.

Both are more fiction than fact. Not unusual when packing in the audience is more important than making an accurate film.

I didn't know that Argo was supposed to be a documentary.

Does your disbelief make God no longer exist?
Conversely, all the belief in the world will not conjure a deity into existence if such deity does not exist independent of the belief. Essentially, as I tried to say in my previous post, the existence or absence of belief is not relevant to the question of whether a god exists. God either exists or does not exist, but one must look for evidence of that fact, and the existence of believers is not evidence of god's actual existence, nor is the absence of belief evidence that god does not exist. The fact of gods existence or non-existence is not subject to a referendum by humans.

Paul, the US pretty much OWNS the UN. The Un is a whimpy little do-nothing body of politics.
In over 60 years of existence, the UN has done little more than create a line of marginally attractive UNICEF greeting cards.

Yes, the US owns the UN:

http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2013...

We gave Egypt 7.5 billion dollars and they voted with the US 15% of the time.

We gave Iraq 30.3 billion dollars and they voted with the US 17% of the time.

Recent improvement in voting coincidence with the US is not do to those getting US aid ageeing with the US but the US caving on what it stands for.

What is your point? If your point is that we are dumb enough to give lots of money to countries that hate us, than I agree.

We give that much to Egypt as a bribe to get them to play nice with Israel. The promise of massive aid was the incentive for them to sign a peace treaty with Israel.

We gave that much to Iraq for the benefit of the multinational oil companies. Politically, since the formation of the new Iraqi government, Iraq has been nearly a wholly owned subsidiary of Iran. Not much improvement over Saddam, especially considering the thousands of dead and maimed troops and the billions wasted.

One point is that contrary to what you stated, the US does not own the UN. A second point is that from a Judeo-Christian-secular point of view reality concerning religions can not be objectively evaluated. From a Judeo-Christian-secular point of view all trees in the forests are pines; in other words all religions/cultures are the same and of equal value.

If the US left the UN, it would cease to exist.

Not all religions are equal and the same except that everyone thinks their religion is the only correct one. Also, those religions that worship a god, have no real evidence that that god exists.
For example, I find that based on its source, Islam is much easier to radicalize than say.... Christianity. That doesn't mean that either god is real, it's just that their doctrine could be more easily interpeted towards violence.

The reason islam can be easily radicalized is that it is based on the Law of the Jungle; survival of the fittest. It may be wrapped in religious trappings; it is however, just a product of Social Darwinism. islam is not a revealed relgion.

To me, all religon is pretty much silliness (at least those that are based on a god). You have no more proof that your god is real than any of the others. Islam is a product of the enviroment and culture at the time, just like the bible.

Islam is just as revealed as your religion.... It's not. Also, just like your religion, it is a product of the times that it was written in. Yeah, you may say that Jesus was more of a pacifist than those around him, but he wasn't the first.
The bottom line(To me at least)is that both claim that theirs is from god, and neither has any evidence to back up that claim.
