So many things wrong with this video.

First; It could have been that old hag who took the dog out after his husband died and carried him all the way to the church and made the story up. That would actually make more sense.

Second; The old hag mention "godsend" and she previously said that she "Can`t explain it" when asked about the electric dog collar that would have prevented the dog from escaping... so god made the dog suffer painful electric shock just so he can freeze his arse outside searching for the dead body of his master? What a god.

Last; Electric collar are for stupid people who dont have any respect for their pet.

Your in your 30`s and you call yourself the maddog and have nothing better to do then post on a website for bored teenagers about your pathetic views.
And the funny thing is I actualy agree with you and then some. Religion is ridiculous. All I was saying is that this is probably not the best place to discuss such things.
You obviously didn`t understand what I was trying to say, felt threatened and lashed out.
Gee, that sounds like something a really thick as sh*t person would do.
Hmmm?

The god`s work thing is bullpoo. It was the dog who was smart and brave enough to cross roads and miles to go and find his owner.

Pretty cool but I`d have been more impressed if the dog saved the dude from cancer. I also hate it when they say someone `lost the battle` with cancer. It makes me think of a tennis game when Cancer scores the last point and the guy gets pissed and throws a racket onto the court and cusses out the ref lol
On a side note did anyone else notice what the church sign said? "He is Risen... Indeed" It makes me think of Sherlock Holmes
*looks at the grave of Christ*
Watson: He is risen!
Sherlock: hmm... Indeed.

I worked as a nurse in a nursing home that had a resident cat that liked no one. He wouldn`t let you touch or pet him and was pretty much antisocial. I did my rotation on the hospice hall for awhile and saw some pretty strange things. This cat would hop on the bed with some people and stay with them. We came to find out it was before they died. He would start hanging out a few days before it happened and then the person would die and he would leave. It was very cool, very spooky and also very sad. Kinda like a prediction of the future.

Not at all. If I say "I belive in this" I found it on factual information, not some book that requires faith in the supernatural. I really do belive everyone is born equal and it is only our actions that set us apart. I treat people how they treat me and I find that the worst offenders in human rights (yes I am a humanitarian) are religious zealots. I`m not picking on christians but nearly all religions. Like I said, when we dont have people like the Pope saying condoms are wrong or the Ayatollah issuing a Fatwah because of a differing of opinion then I`ll listen. Till then its people being asses without anything of merit worth listening too!

I`m not equating communism with atheism. I`m equating "shut up if I don`t like what you say" with dictatorship-style governments in general.

No, I can`t back up my beliefs, at least not with evidence you`d consider valid, but that doesn`t mean I shouldn`t believe them nor does it mean I can`t talk about it, which is the actual subject of discussion. A person`s actual beliefs is irrelevant to whether he has the freedom to believe them and to declare such beliefs. If I want to believe in pink flying elephants, then I`m entitled to believe that and also talk about it. I`m even entitled to be president as long as I`m constitutionally qualified and freely elected. What I shouldn`t do, however, is attack people when they differ from my beliefs, no matter what the beliefs are, and that`s the real point of discussion.

Anyways, I`m done participating in this thread. There`s no point if you`re just purposefully misconstruing my words and throwing red herrings.

sirpsycosexy: Really..I`m dyslexic and I can still see your spelling mistakes, so dont go claiming "I cant string a sentance together".! Come back and talk in 20 years time AFTER you know what your talking about. try reading the Bible and the Koran and see what it says about us "Atheists". Once you`ve done that, tour the world and see what happens in some places to people who dont share the same religion as the relative population. Till then STFU kid!

"Sigh". ttsec, I dont hate anyone for beliving in something I dont. Everyone is diffrent and I wouldnt have it any other way. Belive whatever you want...but anyone with half a brain knows that a vast majority of worldwide politics is ruled by religious belief...and from your own comments you know zip about european history!

Belive what you want..but unless you can back up your claims and not piss anyone else who thinks diffrently off keep it to yourself!

^ So, you clearly see it`s wrong when fundamentalists do their crazy business, yet you don`t see how you`re wrong for attacking people when they declare their beliefs? Well, at least you believe the logic in my argument, even if you refuse to apply it to yourself. Hypocrisy at least shows you know what`s right even though you`re only using right as a veil for your wrong.

I like my high horse very much, so stop trying to "dictate" against my pro-horse lifestyle.

I can talk about my God as much as I want, but I don`t go hating on you for not believing it. Same way, you shouldn`t go hating on people for believing in a God, imaginary or not. Trying to suppress someone`s freedom to talk about their beliefs is intolerance.

Get off your high horse ttsec. It`s pretty obvious you dont know what tolerance is. I`m happy for ANYONE to have any religion they wish..untill they start using that as a way to dictate life to others. When I dont live in world that says, for example, wanting to die when your terminally ill and in pain is wrong because "the bible says so" along with numerous other transgresions and ideals against people as a whole, I might listen to you. Oh and when you dont have a president who constantly thinks "god" is on his side, come talk. Till then, you have no idea what your talking about. IAB isnt really the place for this dicsussion anyway..it allways turns into a flame war.

Dont bleat on about some imaginary skygod if you cant prove it!

To "The Maddog". Stop it. what you are doing is wrong. People nowadays have freedom of thaught so we are capable of choosing whichever belief system we like for the first time in history, and this has naturaly sparked debate, fear and hatred. But for the love of all that is good, this is a goddamn story about a cute dog who missed his dear departed owner, its CUTE! not a basis for a "lets smash religion" argument.
You make me ashamed to call myself atheist, We`re supposed to be followers of science and logic, and you can barely string a sentence together.

i think it`s prty funny that the lady was all "My dag running away was god sent" REALLY? You sure? cuz if on the day my wife died if my dog ran away I`d be pretty convinced that if this was a god thing then God is kind of a prick. Maybe that`s just me. Anyways this really isn`t that amazing.

I got a puppy a few weeks ago and was golfing with it 2 or three miles from our house, I`d attached its leash to the golf cart, anyway long story short it got loose and 4 hours later was sitting on my front porch. The weird thing, the dog has no idea how to get to the front of teh house, only how to get to the back door and it had only seen the place where i lived from the outside 2 or three times. So either my house smells like poo and my dog could smell it from miles away or she`s a genius

The_Maddog, haha, some media person, politician, or people in school talking about God somehow controls your life? Wow, you must be gullible or something or have no mind of your own.

Seeing as how people`s declaration of their beliefs doesn`t infringe on your rights and freedoms, you shouldn`t show intolerance, which is what you`re doing.

People should have the freedom to express their beliefs, whether they be politicians, media, or teachers. They should be free to express both theistic or atheistic beliefs. If you want to infringe on that, then you`re being intolerant.

If the president wants to be Muslim, then let him be Muslim. If he wants to be Christian, then let him be Christian. If he wants to be atheist, then let him be atheist. As long as he`s upholding the constitution and is freely elected by the people, then it`s what the people want.

You wouldn`t know tolerance if it hit you in the face.

sirpsycosexy:
Take your head out of ass. That woman is as dumb as it gets. She can "thank god" for sending her dog to church but what about her husband horrible cancer death? Same thing! She`s not thanking him for taking her husband.
ttsec. Your as clueless as ever. We Athesist DO have tolerance for religion. What we dont have tolerance for is our way of life being dictated by people constantly pushing "their" religion on us, something that happens constantly. When it`s kept out of politics, the classroom and my choices on how I live my life then and only then will it stop. Europe isnt religion free..but religion is certainly losing its grip here!

Perhaps, by transforming into a continent of Atheists, Europeans are trying to escape the causes of such wars to begin with, yet, because of their fervor towards atheism, at the end, they are no different than the intolerant people they once were. By trying to escape spirituality, instead of avoiding spiritual indignation and it`s consequences, Europeans have merely replaced the source of such indignation with something else, namely atheism, and the indignation is still just as fiery.

Hopefully, after WWIII, humanity will be erased from this planet and there will be peace at last.

"Dont believe it. A CAT walking 30 miles?"
actually cats are more known to walk back to their homes if they are taken somewhere new or abandoned somewhere. Dogs are more likely to get lost. Just cause they spend the majority of their time sleeping dosent mean sh*t

Thios dosent choke me up simply cause ive heard stories like this over and over again. im an animal person xD. although the fact that its a weiner dog is amazing cause it has tiny little legs xDDDD

Considering how many religious wars Europeans have suffered, shouldn`t Europeans have learned tolerance by now? Yet, the amount of anger coming from Europeans on this forum when spiritual things are mentioned shows otherwise. Whenever someone on IAB mentions their spiritual convictions, it is mostly the Europeans who swarm to pounce on them with the greatest energy. No wonder Europe had so many religious wars in the first place.

In the olden days, it was the religious people hating on the atheists. The atheists cried foul and demanded tolerance, and once they have their wish, they turn the tables and hate on the religious people. Nowadays, religious people who hate others of differing beliefs are considered extreme and horrible, yet when atheists do it, it`s much more accepted. The hypocrisy and double standard is appalling. Can`t we all just get along? If you (both believers and non-believers) want tolerance, than you should practice it yourselves too.

Getting mad over someone else`s differing beliefs and expressing and acting upon that madness is just moronic, at least when the differing belief doesn`t infringe on the freedom and rights of others. If you don`t want to be persecuted yourself, then why do you persecute others?

this has been publicized several different times. in some cases if an owner is close enough to his pet, it`s like the pet senses what`s wrong. it`s thought to be kind of like what twins have. there have been cases where the moment someone died, their dog would howl, or bark uncontrollably, or faint. pretty amazing sutff
