Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking. Full Story

Monument unveiled to Catholic priests killed in Nazi camps

Nov 4, 2006, 17:23 GMT

Berlin - Catholic priests and monks, the bulk of them Polish, who were killed by the Nazis in a concentration camp near Berlin were commemorated Saturday with the unveiling of a stone sculpture in the presence of Cardinal Jozef Glemp of Poland.

The sculpture is engraved with the names of 96 clergy who died at Sachsenhausen concentration camp on the north-west outskirts of Berlin.

Historians working for the Catholic archdiocese of Berlin have so far documented the names of 711 Catholic clergy from Poland, Germany and other European nations who were incarcerated in the camp, where inmates often died of starvation or disease or were executed.

Hundreds were later transferred to Dachau concentration camp on the outskirts of Munich and other Nazi sites, where they died.

Unveiling the monument, in which a cross has been etched in the stone, Berlin's archbishop, Cardinal Georg Sterzinsky, said the German Catholic Church was grateful that there was now a memorial to this group of Nazi victims, more than 600 of whom were Poles.

One of the surviving inmates, Kazimierz Majdanski, now 90, later went on to become Catholic bishop of Szczecin-Kamien, the Berlin archdiocese said. Glemp, who holds the title of primate of Poland, represented the Polish Catholic Church at the ceremony.

Sterzinsky appealed for continued vigilance against right-wing extremism and racism.

The Nazis opened the Sachsenhausen detention camp in 1936. Thousands more died when the Nazis forced inmates to march away as defeat loomed, but the Red Army was able to liberate 3,000 prisoners at the camp on April 22, 1945.

1. It is all from our own brains, some are clouded, some are clear. No one gets "aided by the Creator of Universe".

1A. A real god would not need prophets or messengers. That's the truth.

1B. I was just joking about calling philosophy a science. It isn't. People's feelings, hunches, hallucinations, delusions, opinions, dreams and tall tales have everything to do with religion and nothing to do with science.

3. Nothing. We evolved intelligence the same way the other animals evolved their various survival tricks. We behave like animals because we are animals. We're not "above" anything. Please tell me what you think that "higher purpose" might be. We may well be relatively rare intelligent beings in a vast cosmos. A good "higher purpose" might be to fully understand our place in the Big Picture and try to make sure we're around for a while.

I hear a lot more crying than I do laughing. Maybe you are wrong about a great many other things as well.

2.

You got a lot of nerve. One criteria we judge civilizations upon is the quality of their mercy. How's yours? Tolerant much? I doubt it. What does your version of "civilization" do to sodomites and lesbians MUQ?

I've been to strip clubs in Damascus and flown around the Middle East in planes full of Ukrainian whores, selling themselves at every stop to you holier-than-thou Arabs.

Don't try to come off cleaner than anybody else MUQ, because I know better. When 25-30 other nations decide to topple your government, maybe there's something wrong with it.

Like it or not, MUQ, we all living in a "Global Village" now ... we all one big happy "civilization". Maybe you didn't get the memo.
Ans.

So we once again go back to the "original question" can things create themselves and can things get created by "chance"

Unless you bring "scientific proofs" of these you are as much talking in thin air as you accuse us to be doing.

I think you have a magic word "evolution" as you accuse us by having "faith". You dependence of "evolution" is as illusory as our faith.

There is no "proof" that any one evolved from any one else, so it is your faith against ours.

None of them having any real proof, so why should you rate your illusion above ours?

Judging civilization:

Mercy is one criterion and doing Justice is another criterion for judging civilizations

And if some "Muslim countries" try aping some aspects of "western nations" to show that they are "More Modern" than their western counter parts, then they would not become Islamic teachings.

Yes if 25-30 Superpowers join as a "pack" and attack small countries and at the same time "close their eyes" and take no action when "another small country" is killing , torturing and acting like bully, there is some thing wrong.

You are not as much civilized as you claim to be!!

We are civilized people Muq. We do things like bathe properly, allow equal rights to all people regardless of race, nationality or beliefs, we strive for fairness and justice for all, do we always get it right?..

We don't drag women suffering from being beaten and viciously raped and then whip them bloody in the streets as your people do.

Oh but the men in your religion can hire prostitutes from all over the world to work in a harem and be blesses by your Islamic religious leaders while doing it! Some morality! Women must wear burkas unless they are a whore in the cleric's harem! What a joke!

Women in civilized societies are allowed the same opportunities as men in education, employment and even high office politics.



Richards:

Let me see if I have got this right:-
1. Anal sex is uncivilized.
2. Girl on girl is uncivilized.
3. Strippers are uncivilized.
4. Saving an invaded country is uncivilized.

But:-

1. Stoning young girls to death is civilized.
2. Female genital mutilation is civilized.
3. Thighing is civilized.
4. Flying planes into buildings is civilized.
5. Suicide bombers are civilized.

You are sick.

Lacez:

Why waste the only life we have?

If you were going to just go bomb yourself, why do you guys even bother to produce offspring? They're just going to kill themselves too.
Ans.

My "little post" on who is civilized got lot of attention on the thread and many posted their comments.

Most of the answers are rhetoric and use individual incidents to generalize on every Muslim. Here are my short comments on each of these posts:

Liberty:

I do not from where he got the idea that Prostitutes work in Haram Area. May be she (if he is "she") got personal experience, so I cannot comment anything about that.

This comment itself shows how civilized you really are.

Richards:

He has his "funny bone" ticking. Very ingenious list he has provided.

I might add "Allowing Isreal to have nukes and putting Sanctions on Iran to not have" is very uncivilized.

Lacez:

He (or she, I do not really know) has more love for life than what one should have.

He or she wants to enjoy the life as much as he can.

I wish him or her best of luck!!

Producing offspring is "our specialty".too bad you do not like them.

Do to them what you did to Red Indians, Eskimos and Aborigines!!

Evolution has tons of proof.
It is a scientific theory just as gravity is a scientific theory.

Faith is just that; faith.
Definition: the belief of or in something unproven or unknown.
