Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Can you read?

The court held that the prosecution failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it was a forgery. As in, not guilty, but not necessarily innocent. I know that this distinction will be too hard for you to understand.

And the court did not declare it to be authentic.

Looks like evolution could have been on the fast track. A certain mind over matter aspect to force adaptation without having to wait for random mutations.
Totally. Excellent assessment.

You have no idea how emotion based your logic is.
Science has flourished under Christianity. Almost non-existent under pagan civilizations such as Rome. Explain that.
Yes, Dave, and you arrive at your conclusions via a robotic, cold logic that relies on mathematical equations and not at all on your desire to see evidence of god in everything around you.

There's no point in arguing about this idiot politician. He agrees with you, so you will back up anything he says, no matter how stupid and unacceptable.

Another double standard. Once again if a Christian responds emotionally to being called uneducated, liar, bigot, etc..
they get berated non-stop. I say equal treatment across the board. I Christians are retard for following a zombie god , then the Jews are retarded for following an even more outdated vengeful asshole of a god, and the Muslims are [email protected] braindead for killing people over a criticism of a prophet let alone their camel riding desert dwelling murderous allah. We can't forget about the Wiccans which are just fairy loven nudist tree [email protected] hippies or the Atheists and their nihilistic belief system and egocentric condescending attitudes.

<quoted text>While I agree with you somewhat , you have to know you are saying that your wearing provocative clothing , makes you guilty of being raped. NOT! Yes wearing provocative clothing is risky , but the being raped because you did wasn't your crime.
Of course I am not saying that wearing provocative clothing make you guilty of being raped, that is a stupid comment and highlights your willingness to cherry pick my posts, a typical fundy ploy that I though your usual intelligence put you several levels above. Or should I assume that you simply did not see my wording which I will re-quote - That does not excuse murder no matter what the provocation.

The girl who wore the clothing was responsible for wearing that clothing, no more, no less, after all it was her who dressed, not the rapist. The rapist commits the rape and is responsible for his actions. In the same way that the filmmaker is responsible for making the film and the murderers are responsible for murder.

Just because there were murderers out there who objected to his film does not release him from the responsibility of making the film. That’s the thing about freedom of expression, it gives you the freedom to consider consequences. It is my opinion that the consequences were considered. Let is recount, the guy is a coptic christian and known Muslim antagonist. Only after making the film was it dubbed to be deliberately offensive – notice that after? He knew that he could not ask the actress to utter such offence, it had to be dubbed afterward. What was he scared of? Could it have been something along the lines of refusal to incite hatred, which just happens to be a criminal offence in most countries in the world.

A person is responsible for his own actions, whether they or others want to excuse that responsibility based on subsequent events is mute, hindsight is a wonderful thing, it’s just a pity we don’t have foresight.

Good point.

Hey, just so you know, South Park is my favourite show. And as you know, they insult EVERYBODY - Actors, scientists, Blue collar workers, white collar fat cats, whites, blacks, latinos, jews, gays, christians, scientologists, atheists.... And Tom Cruise.

I absolutely love the show - freedom of speech, right?

This is really getting to you isn’t it?

I assume you are one who thinks everyone is responsible for his own actions except Americans

After all you have the freedom to do what the f*ck you want to any f*cker who disagrees with you and f*ck the consequences – right?

Just so long as you are not muslim and you agree 100% with you then everything is fine – right.

Honey, it’s a big world, you don’t like how a different culture in that big world lives then tough, learn to live with it

If all the guy is responible for is making a movie then what is the point of pointing it out? Is there a consequence that you think he should pay for making the movie? If so then what is the consequence of a girl dressing provacatively? If the girl that got raped for dressing provacatively is the victim the what would that make the film maker ?
