My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

An aide to Rick Perry is confident that the Texas Governor proved he “has what it takes to be President” with his decision on Monday to send troops somewhere for no reason.

By deploying a thousand National Guardsmen to the U.S.-Mexico border, Perry has shown that as President he would be “ready and willing” to use troops without a defined objective, mission, or exit strategy, the aide confirmed.

“Sending troops someplace with no clear idea of why they are going or what they are supposed to be doing once they get there is a key part of the Presidential skill set,” said the aide, Harland Dorrinson.“Rick Perry has just shown that he’s got that nailed down.”

Dorrinson acknowledged that the gold standard for using troops for no reason might have been set by Perry’s predecessor in Texas, George W. Bush, but added,“If anyone can beat that record, it’s Rick.”

According to the aide, Perry’s “extremely Presidential response” to the immigration crisis is already winning him the praise of G.O.P. voters.“Nothing unites Republicans more than standing up to children,” he said.

Dorrinson is a liar and an America-hater.

Nice choice for your quotations.
In what may be the most serious allegation ever made against the former Secretary of State, Fox News Channel reported today that Hillary Clinton was involved in the conspiracy to murder President Abraham Lincoln.

The latest charge against Mrs. Clinton was reported by Fox host Sean Hannity, who said that the evidence of her role in the Lincoln assassination came mainly in the form of e-mails.

According to Mr. Hannity,“If it’s true that Hillary Clinton killed Lincoln, this could have a major impact on her chances in 2016.”

The accusation against Mrs. Clinton drew a strong response from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R.—S. Carolina):“There’s been a concerted effort by Hillary Clinton to cover up her role in President Lincoln’s murder. She has said nothing about it. This is bigger than Watergate, the Cuban missile crisis, and the Second World War put together.”

Responding to the allegation, Mrs. Clinton issued a terse statement indicating that she could not have participated in Lincoln’s assassination because she was born in 1947.

“That’s what she wants us to believe,” Sen. Graham said.

Because over 75% of the people on this planet do not believe in your god?

Because 76% of young adults (18-25) in the UK have no religion at all?

Your blind belief is dying.

Statistics LOL

"Often when they do I throw out my favorite statistic:

73.6% of all statistics are made up. I say it deadpanned.

Often I’ll get some people look at me like,“really?”“It’s true. Nielsen just released the number last month.”

No. It’s irony.

Or as Mark Twain popularized the quote most attributed to the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Benjamin Disraeli,“there are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics.” The quote is meant to highlight the deceiving but persuasive power of numbers.

In the end make sure you’re suspicious of all data. Ask yourself the obvious questions:

- who did the primary research on this analysis?

- who paid them? Nobody does this stuff free. You’re either paid up front “sponsored research” or you’re paid on the back-end in terms of clients buying research reports.

- what motives might these people have had?

- who was in the sample set? how big was it? was it inclusive enough?

- and the important thing about data for me … I ingest it religiously. I use it as one source of figuring out my version of the truth. And then I triangulate. I look for more sources if I want a truer picture.

I always try to think to myself,“what would the opposing side of this data analysis use to argue its weaknesses?”

Statistics aren’t evil. They’re just a bit like the weather – hard to really predict.
And as they say about economists and weathermen – they’re the only two jobs you can keep while being wrong nearly 100% of the time "

So Hillary killed Lincoln.

Let us wait and watch.

When our Prophet started his mission 1400 years back, only ONE person was believing in his message (He alone).

In 23 years of his mission, the whole Arabia was believing in his message.

And after 1400 years, close to 1.5 Billion people believe in his message.

And Islam is always growing, so you wait and see which is winner in the end.

Wait and watch !!

PS:

Christians started 600 years before our prophet, and after 2000 years, we are neck to neck with them (if you deduct atheists from those who have Christian sounding names, Christians would be less than the Muslims).

Jews started 2000 years before Christians and they are a minor religion in the world today.

Not a fair comparison, since you have murdered so many Christians and Jews.

You had help from the predecessors of Hamas and Hezbollah - the Nazis.

Don't tell us you are neck and neck in numbers after you have been trying to exterminate the competition for 1400 years.

Majority of people used to believe earth was flat few centuries ago.Does that negate the fact that earth is not flat?Majority of people now believe marrying 6 year old girl is an act of pedophilia. Do you agree the fact that your prophet was a raging pedophile?
Your argument always has logical fallacy.Your argumentum ad populum does not hold water.

St Paul was a nobody, a minor rabbi who never even met Jesus and disagreed with his disciples yet he created the largest religion in the world!

What this proves is that truth has nothing to do with religious beliefs.

At the its begining, before Constantinus, Christianism grew peacefully, unlike Islam which spread by military conquests.
Muslim laws dont allow other religions to try and convert muslims
