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.

An analysis of more than 350,000 interviews conducted by Gallup in 2008 finds Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Arkansas to be the most religious states in the nation.

Anyone know which states are the lowest in education?

#34 Alabama
#44 Tennessee
#45 Arkansas
#48 Mississippi
#49 Louisiana
#50 South Carolina

Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts are the least religious states.

#14 Maine
# 4 New Hampshire
# 3 Vermont
# 1 Massachusetts

Honorable mention: Pennsylvania at #5.

You don't have to be stupid to believe in god, but it sure helps!

<quoted text>It's actually your God that is responsible for this tragedy. He turned a blind eye to what he KNEW was going to happen. Your God is ALL KNOWING, ALL POWERFUL, Can see the future, knew well inn advance what was going to happen, yet he sat with arms folded and watched this terror unfold. I'll bet he even had a smile on his face. Why aren't you ashamed of this demon God you worship? A demon God who could have, but did nothing to prevent this terrible incident.
because just like the footsoldier of a kingpin, each believer thinks they have a "deal" with this devil god - the selfish desire to "save" their own soul & f*ck everyone else in the process...

The Four Horsemen encourage their acolytes to do this continuously. If it walks like duck......
Your bible calls all atheists fools. If it reads in black & white like a duck...and was never corrected...

Yep, you're in a cult.

What counts as violent crime?

Could somebody have caused this kind of carnage without a gun?

Without a high capacity, semi automatic gun?

Punching somebody in the face is a violent crime.

So is shooting 26 people to death.

The two can hardly be compared.

It's not the gun or the bomb. It's the thought behind it. Is there a difference between shooting 20 children and dropping a bomb on 2000? Most pilots don't kill themselves among the carnage. Maybe that's the difference.

.....While BobLoblah is Not up-to-scratch on what happened to the US of A in the past, one thing for sure that the WholeWideWorld knows is that the 'whiteMan' arrived in America in 1492, and from that point on....he kicked the Native Indians arseHoles around. They fought many, many battles and in the end.....the Natives LOST. Obviously, you just cannot accept that.

....BobLoblah believes that you are an unfortunate individual who is 50% Native and 50% Black. What a way to live. Clowns to the Left of BobLoblah, Jokers to the Right of BobLoblah and here Bobloblah is....stuck in da middle vit you.

Reviewing the crime statistics on Nationmaster, I can't see any correlation between gun ownership and crime one way or the other. I suspect that levels of political , economic, and social stability affect crime rates more than gun ownership or religiosity.

.....BobLoblah believes dat 'social instability' affected the crime dat happened at Sandy Hook school in Connecticut, US of A....committed by a hateful, hypocritical, hAtheist. He was NO Christian.

Ps:.....Just you wait and see: It will come out dat the hateful, hypocritical, hAtheist dat did the shootings (while coming from a mediumStatus family) was a dropOut. For a year or two, he got by with his $7.00 an hr. jobs from WalMart, McDonalds, BarfBurger, UpChuckys, and da like. Meanwhile, his mommy kept him in gas and cellPhones while on his back about 'gettin' a hairCut and get a REAL job which meant for him to go back to school. This eeejit was also into drugs and da first one at the 'beer parties' dat were held every udder night. Oh yes, he knew all about how to 'fireUP' a beerParty...you can betCher sweet biffy on dat von.
While he knew how to dismantle, maintain, operate various models of guns.....it was very unlikely that he knew how to do multipication Math beyound 9 X tables. He also, probably knew very, berry little about History, Geography, Religion, and World Affairs. He probably did NOT know the names of 10 countries in the WholeWideWorld and could only converse in 'computerGames'.....being educated in some hole in the houseBasement.

....and dat's da Truth.

Remember vere you hurd it first.
