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.

<quoted text>Anyway, it is probably a good thing NATO are there now or the Taliban could have oppressed people for heaven knows how long. At least there is a chance of re-establishing an educated population in a stable country in the comparatively near future now. Women's rights now stand a chance too - a key ingredient to a stable and prosperous society.
I consider it a terrible thing!
The UN Charter specifically forbid the invasion of countries to change their government. You just cannot invade a country because you don't like its government.

In any case, the intervention in Afghanistan, under the pretexte of US national security, was pure imperialism, with absolutely not regard for the population. Al Qaeda was in Pakistan and its backers in Saudi Arabia!

Now, the stories about "establishing an educated population", "women's rights" and so on are used to gloss over and give some form of legitimacy to the invasion of a country and its regime change.

Like in the past, it is bound to fail. Once the coalition forces will withdraw, the Taliban will come back in anger, swipe aside the Karzai government and violently re-establish its authority. In fact, for many this war has given legitimacy to the Taliban as the resistance to Western occupation.

That's on the cards and it already happened when the Soviets left Afghanistan in the same circumstances.

When will Western countries understand that they cannot impose reforms in a country by invading it and bombing its population? Changes always must come from within as part of an evolution and not be brutaly imposed.

Atheism is to society what arsenic is to the human body.
Both can support it in small doses where it is even beneficial.
But if you overdose on it, it's fatal.
So any dogma, any god, huh? Just pick ourselves a god, or make one up, just as long as we have chosen something to use against you, and to condemn you with, right?

Ok, my new atheist god is Reason, no other god can stand against it. That leaves you with just one problem .... newborns. As long as they have not yet chosen a god, they are the atheists. They are your society poison now.

Is it not strange?
When I mentioned the analogy of a speeding train hitting some one standing on track with eyes closed shut, I got 6 or 7 responses.
When I mentioned about a beautiful painting found on a street, there were 4 or 5 responses.
Now I mentioned a strange case of a "professor from outer space" solving the "mystery" of "complex mode of transportation" on this earth....and there is no one commenting on it!!
Very strange phenomenon indeed!!
Maybe it's because you discount any of our comments as not what you think is the only possible reaction to your crap. A dozen zoned out religitards hearing your story would all have the reaction, you led them to have.

One hundred of us, would have one hundred different reactions, and quite likely none of them would meet with your approval, though it's probable that some of us, would have comments that were very similar to each others, but then maybe none of us would.

Or maybe it's because your postings are devolving into pure dipshittery.

Your ant-evolution post just displayed your ignorance of science. You need to study evolution and science to understand it.

In your post you said "No Transitional forms were discovered and shall never be discovered, because there is nothing like Transitional Forms in reality."

Yet since Darwin came up with his theory 150 years ago, we have since discovered many transitional fossils. As well as a rich variety of transitional fossils, other sciences have developed so there is now DNA evidence proving our evolution. We also have a better understaning of the biogeographical distribution of species, the anatomy of animals, etc. All of which points to evolution, and not to special creation.

I am surprised that you don't know that prior to Hitler (up to 1933), Germany was a democracy.
So once Hitler and his party had been defeated, Germany was able to return to its democratic institutions. They were never imposed by the allies.

In Japan, the US were quite prudent in leaving the Emperor Hiro-Hito in place as head of state, instead of judging him as war criminal. The reforms were very superficial and not imposed. Japan always had a liberal audience that came to the fore when the warlords were tried and executed. Japan was allowed to trade military power against economic power, and gain self esteem that way.

There is a lot of crazy sharia crap already being put in place in by Karzai's government in Afghanistan. Doesn't look great for women's rights.

You wouldn't like it if any country proposed to invade the US to stop the mass shooting happening in your schools, would you?
It's the pot calling the kettle black, eh?
Every country has its fanatics, and that gives no one an excuse to attack it. Well, unless you live in the White House that is. Then, you can even ignore the UN and pursue an aggressive foreign policy, of course.
