You fail to realize that religion doesn`t really have much concrete proof like science. You can`t really prove anything in religion, no one can prove God is really there. It`s all faith guys and if people choose to have it then let it be. Science can also be wrong, and so to can religion, but we learn a bit from both. Life lessons from religion and how things work from science

"...If a scientist defends a theory that happens to turn out wrong, is he a scam artist? Was Isaac Newton scamming people when he layed out his theory of mechanics?"

Ha ha, you`re actually going to mix scientific theory with theistic beliefs? Oh MAN.

Religious beliefs have no proof to back it up. So essentially the pastor is preaching something that has nothing to back it up. The stuff he preaches has a lot of influence on people as they usually get a lot of life lessons from there. I think having a little more proof and researching into things is a bit bitter. Inadvertently, yes it`s a scam.

You seem to have a little difficulty in understanding what a scientific theory is. They don`t just make something up and stick with it, (Something religion is very familiar with) a scientific theory has actual proof to back it up. You seemed to have it mixed up with philosophical theories.

"So, when a church preaches that if you do not live up to god`s expectations you get burned in eternal hellfire and tempts you with heaven and then waves a donation plate, that`s not a scam? If I went around selling snake oil, that`s not a scam?"

The difference is that a snake-oil salesman knows his snake oil is useless. A pastor believes what he`s saying is true.

If a scientist defends a theory that happens to turn out wrong, is he a scam artist? Was Isaac Newton scamming people when he layed out his theory of mechanics?

"No, I got your point. You tried to imply that religious people have some kind of tax advantage over non-religious people. I pointed out that you were wrong, religious people pay the same taxes as everybody else."
I wasn`t saying that theists don`t pay taxes, I was stating that religious ORGANISATIONS don`t. So that`s twice you missed my point. Miss again and you win a prize!

"How so? Do you think retarded people should be able to become surgeons? If not, you are discriminating. But since, by definition, its a fact that retarded people aren`t intelligent enough to perform surgery, discrimination is appropriate. Exactly as I said."
So you`re saying that discriminating against homosexuals is the same as not allowing a retarded person become a surgeon? WOW, that`s a big stretch. How is picking on someone on their sexual preference "appropriate"?

So if your neighbour discriminates, it`s okay? Sounds perfectly reasonable to me! Pointing out the flaws in organised religion and its people in is discriminating against ALL theists? Oh no! I`m sorry!

Rights do serve a function. Religion on the other hand has little to no function and brings mostly pain and suffering. Examples include Uganda, Kenya, Egypt. (Oh how nice, the article itself is about Egypt! What a coin-kee-dink!)

So you`re making the massive leap that "believing" in rights is the same as believing in a god? That`s just silly.

No, what`s silly is that both are superstitious nonsense. Yet you believe in one and condemn the other, all the while implying that you are oh so rational. You are no different than them.

Argh. My last post got cut off:

"Prove there are such things as "rights"."
So you`re making the massive leap that "believing" in rights is the same as believing in a god? That`s just silly.

My original point was that you were wrongfully berating "gbrzeatetee" that he spent his time wastefully and was no better than theists. So I just made some points that show how much time and resources having a religion around takes.

The end.

Hmm, I seemed to have found something interesting. There is discrimination against atheism in Egypt. Just in case anybody needs some proof, here`s a link: here

I`ve also read that there`s discrimination against Christianity in Egypt. So this picture doesn`t make much sense. I`m having some serious doubts.

To conclude: this article is to be taken with a massive grain of salt. Also Eygpt isn`t as lovey-dovey as people think it is.

For all the people calling Zarteck out for being a troll, I have to say he`s actually kind of right. Take a look at the comments of past religious posts, they`re filled with unjustified hatred for anyone with any form of religious belief at all, regardless of how they go about pursuing that belief.

"LOLZ J00 BELEEVE IN A FAIRYTALE SKYWIZZARD UR SO ST00P1D LAWL!!!1"

Of course, most people show a bit more intelligence in their posts, but the same sentiment is there.

And the funny thing is, a lot of those people seem to think they`re fighting the `good fight` against the intolerance and hatred of religion, while in actuality all they`re doing is adding more intolerance and hatred to the pile.

That`s why I suggested earlier we should all start focusing on the good side of each group, and maybe we`d encourage that good to flourish and spread, instead of allowing fear and hatred to grow.

True enough...but guess who ends up with power in a theocracy? It`s not the quiet, decent theists with strange but harmless beliefs *who don`t want power over other people and don`t seek it*. It`s the dangerous fundamentalist whackjobs who do want power over people and do seek it. Islam and Christianity are both power-orientated religions founded on force and demanding utter obedience, so they both lend themselves very well to use by those people.

And their first targets are often people like you.

They`re "holding hands" to form a human chain to protect those who pray. Whoever equates this with homosexuality is dummer-than-drat!

ALSO: it`s awfully nice of Egyptian Christians to protect Muslims during prayer after a terror bombing of a Christian church killed so many Christinas just a couple of weeks ago... good for them!

Then you of all people should know that *modern*, Western Islam is no more like Old Testament-era brutality than modern Christianity is. Of course there are exceptions, countries in the middle east that exemplify what fearmongers see as the dangers of Islam, but on the other hand nobody`s using Turkey as a model for Christianity.

Both religions teach peace and harmony. You cannot judge an entire religion on a few evil individuals. That is like saying that Americans are all responsible for war crimes in Iraq and Afganistan. Religion is just an excuse to invade and pillage another country, if it is not religion then it is oil or diamonds. It is mankind who is evil, not religion.

No, I`m saying that if a group of people have failed repeatedly in the human rights arena you don`t promote them to run your own country.

It`s like hiring the least qualified person. We only do that in the U.S. and we usually make them president. lol

@Gerry the quote says nothing about what`s worse, it simply states that by doing nothing you allow evil to triumph.
Also, you`re saying that because a country doesn`t have a good history of human right no one should try and change that?

Yeah, `cause Arab or Muslim nations are big on human rights. The have such a good track recrod at that sort of thing.


And on a personal note, I don`t think they are praying... I think they are ducking the molitov kocktails. {ha! beat the censor-bot with Kocktail}

Well when both groups worship the same god.. why not get along..

Sad that neither group seems to realize that "God" = "Allah". They both even read the same book up to Ibrahim and his children..

So why not stand together.

I`d like to see this type of Religious post more often! Despite what the `ultra-liberals` may want you to believe, the vast majority of us are not ignorant, fundamentalist, hypocritical nutjobs who try to force our beliefs upon others, they`re just the loud minority, and by focusing primarily on that sort of religious person, you`re giving them all the attention (that they crave so much) and encouraging them to keep acting in that way.

Sure, it`s nice to have something we can bash that unites us all, but lets try to balance it out with the good side of many religious people, and there`s plenty of good out there. If the world, instead of focusing on denouncing the bad, actually tried praising the good for once, maybe we`d see more of it. And that goes for any group in my opinion, not just religious people.

@danthew I totally agree. I think a lot of people have been mocked or judged by holier-than-thou Christians, so it`s nice to see proper Christians behaving as they should. "Love thy neighbour as thyself" and all that.

That`s because, unlike you, they`re good people who aren`t hate filled monsters. You see when they, the Christians, decided to help the Muslim worshipers they weren`t thinking about politics, laws, or anything too deep. They simply saw their fellow man in need of help and like true Christians helped without question. It`s the golden rule. This is a beautiful scene and should set an example to Christians worldwide to how we treat each other.

The world isn`t fair but that doesn`t give you the right to be an ass.

@Gerry1of1 Christians protecting Muslims in the Egypt = FOOLS

It is not illegal to be Christian in Egypt, but it is illegal to convert away from Islam.

Why would anyone protect the very people that keep you downtrodden? It`d be like me saving George Bush`s sorry ass. By that I mean I wouldn`t lift a finger... well, maybe 1 finger in particular.

It`s because both all sides agree that religion has nothing to do with the riots, if there was a religious subtext we`d see the same thing that happened a month ago.

Also the Muslims protected the Christians too during Sundays. Don`t forget that crucial part. Basically they protected each other during each of their holy days.

Once people realize that deep down we`re all the same, and specifically that Jews, Christians and Muslims all worship the God of Abraham, maybe, just maybe, people could get along.

When I say it`s not 100% confirmed, Ahram news was saying so, but I can`t find a backup source, and I couldn`t tell if it was an offhand comment about "Egyptians" as a whole having each others backs Christian/Muslims alike, or if it`s two specific groups helping each other out.

Language is unclear.

Video of the ring earlier.

The reason they`re there seems to be that those are the Muslims that formed human shields around them at their Christmas in January, but that`s not 100% confirmed yet.

The picture`s source is by a girl in Egypt called Navine Zaki (Confirmed).

The exact events in that photo are not clear.
Here is how I interpret it { and this is just as likely and just as valid as the description }

Extremist Muslims take chistrian arabs prisoner and force them to their knees in preparation of beheading them.
