2 problems:

1) There are plenty of atheists lacking in the sense department.

2) You will find that "common sense" is usually not all that common, and sometimes not all that sensible. :lol:

I really don't appreciate it when people go out of there way to throw thinly veiled insults at those who follow a particular religion. I don't go around throwing bible quotes down your throat, so man up and stop insulting my intelligence and maturity. Thankyou.

Oh, and P!E.

With respect, that's because they already did their massacres, intra- and inter-denominational civil wars, purges, and religious clensings centuries ago. The 'northern european' roots that I believe you're referring to are largely imports. Even in the history of the UK, it's not like there wasn't suppression of culture and religion even on the island against the Welsh, Cornish, Scottish, ect. So I'm not really sure what you're getting at here.

We aren't talking about things that happened "centuries ago." We're talking about things happening now, so I'm not really sure what you're getting at here. Besides, you're two pages late.

That is the point exactly, most religous types and groups have advanced since the dark ages, we dont do crusades or inquisisions or fatwahs etc, but Islam still does, as the poor buggers in the Marriot hotel in Pakistan just found out.

I for one simply can not see what purpose religion serves in the 21st century, it belongs in a time long since past when fear and superstition ruled, not enlightened education and science, religion.
Still if folks feel the need to worship some diety then fine, so long as they keep their faith private and within their homes it does no harm. But I saw first hand in Ulster the effects of one groups following the teaching of one version of a book, while their neighbours followed another version and they have spent decades killing each other over a book designed as a commercial venture by the vatican. No religion is worth killing for.

7.) No debating of politics or religion.
To help discourage any of the above rules from being broken, we make a point to avoid these types of debates. It makes it a lot easier for us to all get along and helps us stay focused on our root topics--survival and zombies. There are lots of other great forums out there dedicated to debating politics and religion if you wish to do so.
I'm going to lock this down. It's been fairly civil so far but it has crossed the line and I don't want arguments. I have a headache and you guys use caps lock way to much. :D
