What medium would Saddam use ..??...The Euro , Europe is much too unstable no one would use it ....the Yuan , as if the Chinese would ever allow their currency to be put on the worlds market , they would lose total control of its price ...
Saddam a tin pot dictator ...was all bluster , and you know it . There's no way he could made the smallest dent in the way the world trades in petrodollars ..
The Gulf War began when Iraq moved its armor towards the Saudi oil fields ...and , for no other reason ...
Iraq at the time had the second largest known amount of oil reserves , and is still considered this to some extent. Second to Saudi Arabia
Although it is now thought to be the or fifth largest total oil reserves due to the newest discoveries And Venezuela has pushed the Saudi fields to second place.
But in 1991 and 2000, this amount of money traded in euros infuriated both the UN and Washington. Make no mistake his move to cripple the dollar was the straw that broke the camels back. This same thing is what Iran is trying to do, forced to do so from the sanctions.
And now Russia, but there is yet another war over the dollar concerning oil trade, it's inevitable.

<quoted text>Wrong, I wasn't exposed to religions.

I paid little attention to them until 9/11.

Who cares what anyone thinks about creators?
I certainly don't I have better things to do!

Based on this forum title - this was my first comment.

The position of the atheist is that the theist has not successfully met his or her burden of proof.

Proof, with regard to gods rests solely with the side claiming their existence.

When phrased to focus on faith, the claim typically centers on a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning of atheism.

They have erroneously convinced themselves that atheism means absolute certainty that no gods exist.

They reason that to be absolutely certain without proof is a form of faith.

Atheism is not about certainty at all; it is about doubt.
Look how much you don't care.....

And accomplished their land grab without violence and the support of the crimean people.

Have you forgotten the USA's landgrab of all Native American lands? And the near extermination of the tribes?

The only reason the US government is sitting on its hands is because its owners on Wall Street haven't allotted enough funds for a massive war yet.

Let's see how much the rest of the world is willing to cooperate with another US war.

When do they start asking Britain and France to support them?

NATO is as useless as an kewpie doll on a Harley Davidson.

“we the people” must take back our government by peaceful revolution because it will never be given back voluntarily.

Remember what President John F. Kennedy said: "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

For a person that claims to not care about God or Christians very much, you sure do talk about God and Christians an awful lot.

I absolutely agree , Atheists can not prove God does not exist ..nor...can Theists give empirical proof that He does ....but , we can surmise .
Like all things , nothing is that simple a strong Atheist adamantly insists there is no God ..a weak Atheist doesn't believe in God either , but is too afraid to accept the burden of proof ..

DATELINE
13/04/2014

A 2000 member church is invaded by two hooded armed gunmen

They fire their AK-47s into the chapel ceiling and shout "who present is willing to take a bullet for Jesus"?

The choir leaves
The deacons leave
The pastor and 11 people remain in the church.

The gunman pull off their hoods and turn to the pastor and say...

"You may begin your service now... we've got rid of the hypocrites for you."

That will be $666.66

Israel traditionally defines god as a male deity, who in the early stages had a wife.
But his wife was ostracized into obscurity and the worship of Asherah was forgotten.
Also the god of Israel and the god of Muslims are two different deities, this has become known through archeology , as archeology reveals all truths swept under the rug. These two different gods melded into the one god you know of today. But curiously your one god is actually three
and you think I'm confused? Yes I'm confused as to how you can by into it , lock stock and barrel ...... when it's all a pack of lies.

The ancient Israelites ..tended towards Henotheism , but I doubt any of them believe Yahweh has genitalia ..

As , for Allah and Yahweh ....I believe Mohammad picked pieces of the many pervasive religion of the time ..

ah , the Holy Trinity ...We , can't even wrap our minds around that one ..!..but , consider according to Genesis we were created in His image , and how does Freud describe our own psyche Id , ego and superego ...yet, we aren't 3 people ..

a pack of lies ....hmmm....Things that are found beneficial and worthy , tend to be passed on to our progeny the writings of Plato ,Socrates ,Shakespeare ,Beethoven ...why , would our ancestors translate this book and make so widespread and available ....?..if not for our benefit ...

Lots of unmarked graves on Amish farms, too.
Indeed, I have no doubts of that whatsoever.

Anything based on the bible or the equally evil, quoran, is going to be malicious as it's fundamental base.

This is because either book is also maliciously evil.

The proof is all over Topix: pick a random Godbot, and read their hate-filled posts.

Pure speculation.
Dismissed as such.
Nope.

Actual studies/surveys of people over the past 10 years or so, shows a **sharp** correlation between belief (or lack thereof) and higher education.

And YOU are PROOF of that! You have virtually NO education of any merit.

And YOU are just another stupid and malicious god-robot.

Fair enough I can see your confusion
I have more interest in political issues than superstition.

Religion is so immersed in the national psyche and there so many religious nuts in office it's only natural that comments about religion would surface.

A higher percentage the people in Afghanistan voted than did in the last US election what does that indicate to you?

Number one question is Edward Snowden (malware distributor extraordinaire ) a traitor or did he reveal something very sinister and ugly?

Only Vladimir knows for sure!
