If the mind constructs hell, does it exist? If the mind constructs ANYTHING, does it exist? Your 'reasoning' is disigenuous. And deceptive.  (Nov 23, 2010 | post #37184)

You are joking, right? Language exists; Religion is still a construct of the mind. Language can be exchanged, written, and recorded as factual phenomena... Religion is reaching, supposing, and acquiescing... Sorry 'dude'... Looks as if YOUR religion exists for everyone... like sheep... As you.  (Nov 23, 2010 | post #37181)

Most humans'? Do 'most humans' subscribe to your particular brand of idiocy? My definition of religion is--- 'Fools abound.'  (Nov 23, 2010 | post #37169)

You see no flaw?!? Light travels as sound does... And you see no flaw... Proof for sound is dependent on humanity? Please. Stick to the irrational view of your incomprehensible religion...  (Nov 23, 2010 | post #37168)

Soo... Your church is 'truth'? Handy! Your 'church' could no more prove that religion exists than a story could prove that the story's characters' exist... Your 'proof' is weak and immaterial, sad and impotent...  (Nov 23, 2010 | post #37163)

Nope. I asked to be given PROOF of religion... But that is the thing... you don't 'ask' if someone wants to be indoctrinated... THAT is the insidiousness of religion.  (Nov 23, 2010 | post #37161)

The point of philosophy is to disagree... Religion asks no questions. Philosophy asks all questions. Reality is for all, and within all-- There is no separation of ideals. Only questioning and non-questioning...  (Nov 23, 2010 | post #37151)

Slavery, settlers, and tribute During the second voyage, Columbus sent a letter to the monarchs proposing to enslave some of the Americas people, specifically from the Carib tribe, on the grounds of their independence minded aggressiveness and their status as enemies of the Taíno tribe. Although his petition was refused by the Crown, in February 1495 Columbus disobeyed the Queen and took 1,600 people from the Arawak tribe, who were taken by the Carib as captives and slaves. There was no room for about 400 of the kidnapped and they were released, leaving 1,200 people forcibly taken from their homeland. This began Europeans practicing Slavery in the Spanish New World. The many voyages of discovery did not pay for themselves, and there was no funding for pure science in the Renaissance. Columbus had planned, for Queen Isabella, to set up trading posts with the cities of the Far East made famous by Marco Polo, but whose Silk Road and eastern maritime routes had been blockaded to her crown's trade. Of course, Columbus would never find Cathay (China) or Zipangu (Japan), and there was no longer any Great Khan for trade treaties. Slavery was practiced widely at that time, amongst many peoples of the world, including some Indians. For the Portuguese — from whom Columbus received most of his maritime training — the profits from enslaving people had resulted in the first 'financial return' on a 75-year investment in Africa. Columbus enslaved five hundred and sixty people. The slaves were shipped to Spain, 200 died during the route back to Spain, and half of the remainder were ill when they arrived. After legal proceedings in the Cortes, some survivors were ordered released and to be returned to their las Americas homeland, others were used by Queen Isabella as galley slaves. Columbus, desperate to repay his investors, failed to realize that Isabella and Ferdinand did not plan to follow or allow Portuguese slavery policy in this respect. Rounding up the slaves led to the first major battle between the Spanish and the free indigenous people in their old homeland, called by those invading it 'the New World.' Columbus was anxious to pay back dividends to those who had invested in his promise to fill his ships with gold. And since so many of the slaves died in captivity, he developed a plan while in the Province of Cicao on Hispaniola. Columbus imposed a tribute system, similar to that of the still unknown Aztec Empire tribute on the mainland. All Cicaoan indigenous residents above 14 years of age were required to find and deliver a specific quota of gold every three months. Upon their doing so, they would receive copper tokens that they wore around their necks. Any Indian found without a copper token had their hands cut off and subsequently bled to death. Despite or because of such extreme enforcement, Columbus did not obtain much gold and many new foreign "settlers " were unhappy with the climate and disillusioned about their chances of getting rich quick. A classic gold rush had been set off that would have tragic consequences for the Caribbean's indigenous people and cultures. Anthropologists have shown there was more intermarriage and assimilation than previously believed (see the Black Legend).[citation needed] Columbus allowed settlers to return to their homeland with any Indian women with whom they had started families with, or to Queen Isabella's fury, had kidnapped and owned as slaves  (Nov 23, 2010 | post #14727)
