you_idiot: *sigh* Why are atheists such massive dickbags?


Same reason everybody else is. Only difference is, they don't think the creator of the universe endorses their dickbaggishness.

Hagenhatesyouall: Not much different than the "quacks" they so vehemently condemn IMO.


Meh. When an atheist shows up at my house with his wife & kid in tow and wants to waste my Sunday lecturing me on ancient works of fiction, I'll buy the both sides are bad argument. Until then:

Religion is just like a penis:
It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But don't go whipping it out in public all the time.
And FFS don't try to shove it down my throat.

Most Born-Again types are just one step away from primitive tribesmen who blame everything on evil spirits. One step ahead or one step backwards is open to debate.

Where was your outrage when half of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon were destroyed to make way for a military base?

WTF Dude? You got a citation on that?


Really? Google isn't working for you?

We destroyed half of Bablyon to create Camp Alpha. We blew chunks off of the Ishtar Gate. Hundreds of soldiers left graffiti, some actually carved into the stone, on millennia-old historical sites.

And not just sites were damaged. Millions of dollars in artifacts were either destroyed or stolen because coalition forces refused to secure them even as they invaded, despite pleas from both local and worldwide scientists. Some of what was lost was both unique and irreplaceable. Years later, we issued a weak mea culpa, but even now, the State Department's dragging its heels about compensation for damage and repatriation of items seized after the sacking of Baghdad in 2003.

We quite actually destroyed a small portion of human history, just as Islamist fundamentalists are doing in Timbuktu - except we didn't even bother with the flimsy rationalization currently provided ("these sites violate our fundamentalist view of the religion to which they belong, so we're 'purifying' them, not destroying them".) We just didn't bother thinking about it, because the Bush administration had a huge war-on - this stuff was just in the way, that's all.

Well we've obviously progressed to the point in our civilization that the +10 food and +3 happiness are of less benefit than the +12 combat and +25 HP bonuses that military base brings in.

Because gods have small penises. They use magic to make sure all their followers have small penises. Since we have no tiny dick gods, our dickbags need to be massive.

To you, maybe. But that's okay, because your retardation is mostly harmless and immensely entertaining.

/now tell us how Pat Robertson is responsible for burning ancient manuscripts in Timbuktu
//they were burned by someone who called them blasphemous, some Christian must be responsible


We were too busy grinding up archaeological sites in Iraq for aggregate, manufacturing the stones you're now throwing at Islamists for destroying historical sites in Timbuktu. Where was your outrage when half of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon were destroyed to make way for a military base?

Religious extremists, in all forms, are repugnant. Eventually, we'll grow out of religion - and religious extremism is helping.

I'm confused. Who's the anti-scorer group? The militant group seeking revenge against rogue witch doctors? Or the cannibal cult? Or are they one in the same? Also, doesn't making a soup out of someone's penis so you can become bulletproof pretty much make you a scorer?

The anti-sorcerer group, which is believed to have as many as 1,000 active participants, was organized after witch doctors, who traditionally charge 1000 kina ($472), a pig, and a bag of rice to determine a cause of death or ward off evil spirits, began demanding sex as well.

I can't fault them for this.
