Now on the other hand if the proceeds from the albums were going to some charitable fund for victims of 911 Like the other saying "We'll be rich, rich as a fireman's widow!" (not sure how widespread that one is yet, since as far as I know, I originated it as a spoof of the Simpsons' quote "We'll be...

What test? With our current level of perception, science can never disprove divinity. The only victory I can picture is a world where people are able to find meaning in their lives and able to do the right thing without images of heaven and hell to push them. once the need to religion goes away, it ...

He managed to become dictator in a legal, disregarding some mad intimidation and some assasinations, and democratic way. Alot of people forgot about this. We have a saying in the US... "It is really ridiculous to compare Bush with Hitler... Hitler was elected." WW2 genocide wasn't solely about the ...

You know .... That's true ... And so would any country that's about to be overrun and destroyed if they wouldn't want to cooperate with an far stronger oppressor ... People do far worse things when they look into the barrel of a gun. It is remarkable how much of that history has been scrubbed clean...

We seem to forget about a lot ... But we never forget the Jews ... Weird. And that's all I'm saying. You know what else gets forgotten? How much the rest of Europe hated the Jews. About how the SS documented how efficiently France, Belgium, and Poland helped them gather up the Jews. You know what i...

Catch before you get too tied up with your dislike/hatred of the Jews.. *sigh* I hate how if you are honest about anything relating to anything bad involving the Jews or Israel, suddenly you must hate them. The facts are, the genocide of the Jews at the hands on the Nazis gets extensive educational...

Nobody should shut up about it period, why do you think history keeps repeating itself?...short memories... but so much attention is paid to one point, that other issues (like the Reichstag fire or the US allowing Pearl harbor to happen) or forgotten. Those issues are far more important since you d...

The only reason the swastika is such a hated symbol is because the jews control most of the american media and they won't shut up about it. Think I'm just being racist? Why is it that most Americans know all about the atrocities of the Nazis (which pretty much didn't effect Americans at all) yet hav...

Remember though... evolution is more omplicated than what is good for the individual. Smart people tend to question the validity of things like capitalism, materialism, social segregation and so on. Too many smart people and civilization will break down, partly because you need people to tke out the...

If evolution was fact, the gene pool would be improving with each successive generation, not deteriorating. I see christians utilize this bit of bad science a lot, another one is that evolution only adds and never takes away. First off... "improving", what does that mean? Better obviously, but with...

I am a fan of the economy principle (Ockham's razor). I guess I see it the other way - rather than using 'evidence' to conclude a gods existence or not, what about the opposite? Acknowledging there is a higher power actually simplifies existence. What do you think? I think a higher power implies int...

Again this really only ends up a belief. I don't want to turn this into a "we can't know anything" argument, but so often people use this kind of logic to dismiss any sort of belief. I believe that if a given belief allows me to make more accurate predictions, that it is probably correct. However, ...

the only reason we fall apart is the damage to cells from free radicals, where the bodies abilty to repair itself is unable to keep up with the damage being done by said radicals Not exactly true... the body actually oxidizes.
