catbarf, thats not how i have it here. In mine it says "When you lie down, you need not be afraid, when you rest, your sleep will be sweet."

Proverbs 3 is The Value of Wisdom. All of this relies with serving the Lord with confidence and understanding. It does not mean all your actions will be protected but rather you should be sure of yourself.


And Jerm Leather, if you honestly believe in it, then you shouldn`t have a problem putting all your eggs in one basket. You in a sense have also put your eggs in the basket of theism instead of agnostic. Organized religions just take another step

Jerm Leather, that is the most profoundly wise thing i`ve ever heard about organized religion. I totally agree, speaking from experience.

Not to be yet another Christianity basher (mostly because I think that most organized religion has a higher chance of oppressing it`s followers then helping them), but am I the only one that sort of sees this as a metaphor for Christianity?

I mean, you place all your trust and hope in one basket and then when all is said and done you continue to suffer and befall evils even though you reserve your faith for this one perspective.

For the record, I am Not an Athiest. I believe that Something out there is holding all of this madness together somehow. Still, it can only do so much to sway the hearts and minds of mortal men.

p.s. why doesn`t the spell check require me to capitalize Athiest? That`s a bit prejudiced in itself, isn`t it?

"maybe you should learn a little about christianity before you go around bashing it and making a fool of yourself with your lack of knowledge."

No theist, who by the definition of the word believes in something for no reason other than having read it in a book and because it makes them feel good, is in any position to call anyone else a fool.

"I need a quote to prove this. Where does it say he protects you from all harm."

Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Proverbs 3:23-24

Rock is the DEVIL`S music, not for the Lord, but for Lucifer himself. You practice rock, Lucifer will take you. Something Tipper Gore would say.

But seriously uncool. Kinda funny. But uncool.

Ladies and Gentlemen...Schadenfreude at work...simple as that. Everyone (no matter how much they claim they don`t) secretly enjoys seeing bad things happen to people they don`t know because it reminds them to be happy it`s not them. This is why America`s Funniest Home Videos and almost ALL reality TV is so popular.
And Megan, I`ll be the first here to willingly bash the Bible. Mostly because I have read it. I find it to be a wonderful piece of historical fiction. But to take it literally and as fact is ignorant and simply unintelligent. There is little difference between the Bible and Ovid`s Metamorphoses (a collection of ancient Roman myths). Basing all of your ideals on one book is not intelligence, it is ignorance. One must explore all of the realms of possibility and then, after gaining knowledge of each, choose their own path.

"have you ever read the bible?
because i think you have it mixed up with your childhood fairy tale books."

Please tell me how I`m wrong. I have read the Bible cover-to-cover three times, and am quite willing to cite it.

"Hands up who agrees with me! anyone?"

Anon is cruel and callous. Anything painful on the Internet will elicit mocking, cruel laughter.

Christians believe some stupid things, and I don`t think thats an opinion that should be politely tucked away by those who hold it. However, in this case, lets feel sorry for the people who got hurt, yes? Why spit on them while they`re lying there bleeding internaly? They have clearly had a bad enough day and won`t give a damn about the 12 year old standard philosophy being preached here.

Actually, MeganS, some atheists/agnostics have read into the bible and thought it was simply silly. The good ones, anyhow. There are some who simply do it to be non-conformists.
Either way, it`s pointless to try to argue. :[ people can be ignorant either way!

there`s a difference?

In all seriousness- the idea of it is funny, but the actual happening is not. Hurt, no matter what religion, race, or anything, is never funny. Not like this.
However, if they`re doing something retarded and getting `pwnt`, they deserved it. All these people were doing was just enjoying their taste in music.

funny how Christians get ripped apart for believing that other religions are wrong, since "they just don`t understand them."

yet nonchristians who know absolutely nothing about the bible can act like they do and make fun of it.

this comment board is kind of sad...
if the floor had collapsed at a non christian concert, it wouldn`t have been a huge deal. but since it`s a Christian concert, they get made fun of because of their religion.

sometimes i think that Christians aren`t the judgmental ones...

Where was your God? This Proves God Hates Xian Rock bands and All Of The Fans. No One Ever Died At A Frank Zappa Or A Ween Concert. And guys, really, can all of you be that stupid? Lets raise the bar for comments here. I daily read some of the dumbest doo-doo on IAB comments. Jokes and funny are great, but the majority of you are "firstposters" or just love calling people names, which would be fine, if it were funny and relevant. While we are at it, lets remain open-minded and not sling slurs and hate speech. Except for that 7 yr old kid driving his grandmas truck, he`s a no-good-N!993r.
So lets all make a push to Raise the standard, and laugh at something that is funny, not a pre-pubescent douche bag who bullies people behind the cloak of the internet. I know who`s a punk, we all do. I love IAB, but the comments are atrocious. The comments should elevate the post and site as a whole, contribute, not detract. Thanks for reading this whole thing. Peace!

Remember to always stand for what is right, even if you stand alone. And in this world, you will find yourself standing alone many, many times. But at least you know in your heart that you are standing for the truth...

Thanks for having a heart. I really don`t understand what was funny about this. I know this was posted just so people can poke more humor at Christianity.

No, you can`t force anyone to be good. It seems easier to persuade them to drink, do drugs, have sex, and degrade themselves in several forms, but you can`t as easily persuade them to do good. Sadly, there are many things in life that are not normal or okay, but the media/society has brainwashed most humans into thinking that such negative things are `normal`.

It`s really sad. It`s sad to sit back and see such ignorance. The only thing I can do is keep standing for what is right, alongside my family, my husband, and my little daughter.

People need to realize that when building inspectors set the occupation limit for a building they are not expecting a capacity crowd to be jumping up and down in unison. If you figure 200 people at an average of 100 pounds each, thats like having a 20,000 pound pile driver pounding on the floor.

"There were hundreds injured, children young as 9! The hospitals issued a code orange for all the local hospitals as the emergency rooms couldn`t handle the number of injured children. Some children were severely injured with internal bleeding, head tramas, broken bones. They were crushed by other people and the metal light supports. To see the shock and horror on the childrens families faces was unberable.
This is a huge tragety! Not something that should be posted on the internet for some losers to laugh and make fun of.
I saw so many hurt children with injuries that this will forever last in my memory. The victims families should sue this site to have this video removed."

lol! lol! lol! Injured children!!! LOL! LOL! LOL! Broken bones!!! lololololol destroyed families lol! lol! lol!

hmmm. Didn`t the floor split in half right down the middle? That`s what it looked like. I think it`s a metaphoric prophecy from the gods...

Nope, can`t sue, can`t anything. Can only try to help people see how much of a jackass they can be. If I were being a real jackass, I`d want to know. Something about being a good person.

BUT, you can`t force people to be good.

What grounds ravenmoon_29. Under what grounds should IAB be open to a legal assault by jackasses like Jack Thompson and other ambulance chasers?

This was a "tragety" and I hope that no one will have permanent damage to their bodies.

I would also hope that this will show people that just because you are under the limit for number of people, doesn`t mean if you concentrate them in one area (like in a mosh pit), the floor won`t collapse.

its called freedom of speech, and some people have a morbidly sence of humor.

and what are they going to sue them? its a news video, they probably have rights to post this video on IAB and people live in a country where they can speak there mind can express how they feel. i dont know about the canadian laws but i think that is a stupid reason to sue someone.

sorry for the multiposts, but what happened, as far as I know, was:

Tey were on the main floor of a building, the floor was proper and the building was only 20 years old, and one side of the floor that fell in kind of gave out first and slide down, then the other side gave way. It all fell 10 feet to the basement.
