    It`s NOT a popularity contest!

    Funny how the anti-Christian stuff gets posted, but the truth about Islam gets pulled...

    What`s funny is how, in the face of insurmountable evidence and even some out right proof, religious zealots still insist they are right. At some point "faith" crosses the line from respectful devotion to idiotic ignorance.

    He`s trying to be deep, but it didn`t work.

    I will say that atheists are exactly the same as religious people, if not worse these days, in that they sure do like to stick their ideology down our throats. Yes, we get it, atheism is so logical. You have it all figured out. Now go away.

    " atheists are exactly the same as religious people,"
    Turnabout is fair play.
    For centuries people {atheists & other religions} have had
    christianity rammed down their throats and forced on them. But a little
    equal time for atheists and the christians yell "FOUL"!!!

    LOL that`s funny!
    When you think of all the religious people trying to force their religion on others. Trying to make it law. Not just Islam, christians also want a "god fearing nation". But if you fight back against religious zealots we`re "hateful biggots".

    LOL... good one!

    Andrew, you`re right. We all learned in kindergarten that two wrongs don`t make a right. But is it the same thing really? Both can be obnoxious speakers, but religious people want to impose their faith legislatively on others, atheists don`t want to outlaw religion.

    Apples and Oranges.

    A lot of haters in this thread. It`s meant to be entertaining. If you were not entertained, then leave. Don`t argue about how incorrect it is or how your religious views are correct. No one cares. I was entertained by this post, and laughed because it was funny. Now I`m moving along.

    I agree they`re not 1:1, but the point I would like to emphasize is that I`m uncomfortable with people saying their system of belief about the origin of the universe is better than others, or when they constantly bombard people with their message.

    5Cats,

    I think the two main reasons we see lots of posts teasing christians and virtually none on Islam is that most commenters were raised christian (or at least immersed in a christian culture) and so know a lot about it. Which means it is fairly easy to make jokes about it. (I also suspect that very few people on here feel any actual impact on their day-to-day lives from Islam (global politics is another matter).

    The other reason is that it would take fewer than five comments before it`s all about bombing ragheads, which we don`t really want, do we?


    Just to check that theory out I`m submitting a post on Islam. Let`s see what happens.

    Andrew, do you object when christians say they have the `one true god`? Or is it just when athiests say they have the `only real viewpoint`?

    This isn`t anti christian, it`s an observation of monotheistic believers, muslim people and christian people are being equally discussed here.

    Andrew,

    `I`m uncomfortable with people saying their system of belief about the origin of the universe is better than others,...`

    What if one patently is better? And what if a patently wrong belief (YEC, for example) is being pushed into schools? I think you need to speak up, even if the opposition get all hurt about how mean you are being.

    The root of all evil in the world can be found in fanatisim. People of all faiths need to root out the fanatics and cast them out. Only then will there be peace. Average people would rather not russle jimmies and get shot in the face.
    Just don`t rock the damn boat of life.
    I have no bias towards anybody but all religions suck at helping the human race in ANY way. In fact they drag us down from our glory and will be our end.

    Not really, no.

    1) The Christian trinity isn`t three gods. It`s still one god. It`s an odd setup, but they`re pretty clear about it being one god.

    2) The definition of `pagan` isn`t simply `theist who believes in more than one god`. It was originally `theist who doesn`t believe in the Abrahamic god`. Now it doesn`t really have any meaning, although it implies a follower of a minority religion.

    Once again. Explain to me how that post says ANYTHING about him referring to the Christian God? He could just as easily be referring to someone of the Jewish or Islamic faith referring to their God as the one true God.

    So you come in here to b.itch about a post that is biased against Christians over Muslims when in reality it is just talking about God in general. So if every time you see "God" you only can think of the Christian God, then the only biased one is you.

    lolz! @Gerry1 you haven`t noticed yet? You cannot put quotes AND links in the same post!!

    @HolyGod: Do you FAIL to understand that the God of Christendom is LUMPED IN with all those other "gods"? When is the last time a follower of Thor or Zues asked if you believed in God (singular)? I think it`s OBVIOUS what he`s talking about...

    I love the part before the crucifixion, in the garden of Gethsemane when Jesus pleads to his father? Wait, the holy spirit? . . . I mean himself.
    Yeah, he pleads to himself, that makes perfect sense.

    Wow.
    You really know it`s bull**** when 2/3 of the christians don`t even believe it.

    5Cats,

    No, mine was a list of wierd fatwas, seems to have vanished. Maybe that means it`s under consideration or something. (The breast-feeding fatwa is a hoot.)

    BTW, the trinity was a fairly late doctrine - third century. Tertullian, a nasty piece of work whose other main contribution to christian thought was that one of the major pleasures in heaven was to watch the torments of the damned. A son in heaven could watch his pagan mother being tortured forever and relish it because he would have no knowledge that it was his mother. The mother, on the other hand, would know her son was enjoying her pain and that would add deliciously to her suffering.

    Theology, doncha love it?

    I don`t think the trinity is so hard to understand, now, although I was a long time in accepting it. We (Christians and others) often talk about God in different roles, such as creator and as judge. We also talk about him in terms of being our father. Christ was special in that he was the first and only human incarnation of God. So he was, and is, both God and human. And really, if you understand salvation and have received the Holy Spirit, then to be in the presence of a Christian is to be in the presence of God.

    ` And really, if you understand salvation ...`

    One of the stickng points for me. Don`t feel the need to be saved. Haven`t done anything nasty enough to need saving. Understand it as a doctrine, but it`s an ugly doctrine.

    Cats, don`t be a dick. When ANY Mod doesn`t approve apost it drops off the list. It`s 90% fancylad, 9% Kitteh, and <1% the rest of us. Your witch-hunt of accusing certain Mods of surreptitiously deleting content or abusing their power (which is what you`re doing here) is insulting. You did the same character assassination of Madest, to the point where he stepped down from being a Mod. Best of my knowledge, he never censored poo, despite your accusations to the contrary.

    It`s kinda insulting to us Mods to accuse us of favouritism, and insulting to me also, as one of them (at what point are you going to accuse me of censorship and favouritism? Or am I safe for now because I`m not a muslim? Or an outpsoken liberal?). We`re all professional at what we do, and your accusations of some kind of favouritism are in your head.

    Seriously, stop it.

    ehm.. Hindus have over 3.000.000 million gods, most are mentioned by name or described for what they look like or/and do.
    But anyhow, no gods will ever be as cool as Njord!
