sarah palin embodies everything that is wrong with america at the dawn of the 21st century. she is:

• petulant
• egotistical
• shrill
• vain
• vindictive
• greedy
• dishonest
• selfish
• unscrupulous
• and willfully and proudly ignorant

in short, she's an appallingly awful and odious woman. it's no wonder republicans venerate her as a god.

I know two things without a doubt; first never get into a land war in Asia and second, never listen to 4 and a half hours of Sarah Palin talking about anything.

Judging by the quotes there, it seems that Atheist are amazingly powerful in America.  I mean there are currently all of 0 in the house of representatives with another staggering 0 in the senate while having been able to control the executive branch all of 1 times (I count Jefferson).  With that kind of clout in Washington you can bet your bottom dollar that it is going to be open season on Christianity.  Not to mention all the other religions in power in our government like muslims with their equal number of 0.

What she either fails to understand or is intentionally obfuscating is that much of the opposition to the faux righteous crowd that promulgates this nonsense, that their are Christians out there that DO NOT AGREE with them at all and find there message to be short on theology but long on self righteous entitlement pride grounded in tribalism.

Really, think about it, what would her reaction be if some poor guy born in the projects started traveling around with a group of similarly poor people talking about how today's religious leaders were all wrong.  He was always talking about giving to the poor and sacrificing and self denial and did I mention giving to the poor.  He would do this all over and sometimes right in their face.  He physically attacked those that turned worship into a commercial enterprise, and socialized with the worst kind of people.

What would you really think Sarah Palin would have to say about that man?  My bet is he could tap dance across water, and raise the dead but it wouldn't matter because clearly he must be evil because he didn't agree with them so ... well something must be done...

Nope.

She's a dolt. Think of the high school cheerleader who gets the class geek to do her homework for her.

She got famous, and her media contacts came to her and told her she could make money by following their plan of quitting her job and striking the redneck market while the iron was hot.

in short, she's an appallingly awful and odious woman. it's no wonder republicans venerate her as a god.


Sarah Palin is a shameless self promoter that exists outside the boundaries of political partisanship. Even the most die hard crazy Ayn Rand Tea Party types I know can't stand her. The GOP cast her off years ago.  She knows she has absolutely zero hope for a future in politics, she's just in it now to sell books and craft a public image.

gunslinger_RG: Judging by the quotes there, it seems that Atheist are amazingly powerful in America.  I mean there are currently all of 0 in the house of representatives with another staggering 0 in the senate while having been able to control the executive branch all of 1 times (I count Jefferson).


Just because Jefferson's political opponents denounced him as an atheist doesn't make him one.  In fact, Jefferson was not an atheist or even a deist (though neither was he a Christian by any reasonable definition) - in modern terms, his beliefs would be better described as Unitarian Universalist.

With that kind of clout in Washington you can bet your bottom dollar that it is going to be open season on Christianity.  Not to mention all the other religions in power in our government like muslims with their equal number of 0 1.

FTFY.

She hasn't the ability to process any of the complex questions being asked, so she doesn't have the ability to formulate beliefs. She's simply spent her life trying to be popular with her small-town churches by memorizing all of the catch-phrases she's expected to know in order to move up in the social pecking order.

?? Based on what criteria? I would argue against using territorial changes and also against revolutions. France had a number of revolutions, but were still the French nation. Germany and Austria both saw major territorial changes, but remain the nations that they were before. Italy, yeah, you've got a point, especially when they're still more a collection of city states than a nation even now.

So CSB:

I knew a bunch if girls who earnestly believed in the bible when I was a kid. They all went to religious schools conservative enough that half of them didn't even believe in evolution. They were honestly amazed that I though humans had evolved from primates. They also honestly believed that sex outside of marriage got them a first class ticket to hell. All that said - based on their behavior their school could have accurately been named St Mary's School for Morally Destitute Girls.

I guess if you honestly believe you're going to hell for Second Base you may as well be in for a penny in for a pound.

Anyway, was Palin talking about the US as being one of the oldest and proudest? For a second I thought she meant China. Not only is it basically the oldest nation on Earth but mostly atheist. Not sure about the proud thing, but sure why not. But then I thought, is there "moral decline" in China?

So THAT's why modern evangelical Christianity teaches it's followers that the reason people don't follow their particular brand of religious belief is that they hate their God, and everything they stand for/how "successful" they are. AND why it's taught to children from a very small age that anyone who questions their belief is in league with the ultimate evil.

Thanks, netweavr, I never understood the hypocrisy of denouncing other religious for "attacking non-believers" until now!

Palin's a believer, and it did help her slide into moral decay.


One of the world's oldest nations?

Is she talking about France?


I assumed China, but I might be giving her too much credit to know how old things are.

I mean there are currently all of 0 in the house of representatives with another staggering 0 in the senate while having been able to control the executive branch all of 1 times (I count Jefferson). With that kind of clout in Washington you can bet your bottom dollar that it is going to be open season on Christianity.


don't forget about the staggering amount of atheists in the judicial branch.

Target Builder: The logical result of atheism, a result we have seen right in front of our eyes in one of the world's oldest and proudest nations, is severe moral decay.

So CSB:

I knew a bunch if girls who earnestly believed in the bible when I was a kid. They all went to religious schools conservative enough that half of them didn't even believe in evolution. They were honestly amazed that I though humans had evolved from primates. They also honestly believed that sex outside of marriage got them a first class ticket to hell. All that said - based on their behavior their school could have accurately been named St Mary's School for Morally Destitute Girls.

I guess if you honestly believe you're going to hell for Second Base you may as well be in for a penny in for a pound.


So  they where OK with being sold and or stoned, interesting

Fart_Machine: machoprogrammer: To be fair, Pol Pot was pretty brutal (and would kill anyone who was not an atheist, amongst other things). He did kill 1/3 the population of his country in about 3 years.

Pol Pot wasn't an atheist.  He was a Theravada Buddhist.


Prince Norodom Sihanouk was the former king of Cambodia from 1941 as well as Head of State from 1955 to 1970 before resigning in 1976. He once said of Pol Pot:

"Pol Pot does not believe in God but he thinks that heaven, destiny, wants him to guide Cambodia in the way he thinks it the best for Cambodia, that is to say, the worst. Pol Pot is mad, you know, like Hitler."

So since he does not believe in a God, that kind of makes him an atheist. I am atheist, too, but to say religion is what causes a human to do terrible things is a huge simplification.

People have been trying to moralize selfishness for a long time. They know they are self centered, but want us to not think negatively about them. Basically wanting to have the cake and eat it too.

By the time she opened her mouth, and they realized who she was, it was too late. Going in, she looked good - attractive, family woman, some track record, presentable as a "Real" conservative. I can see why they thought it was a good idea at the time.
But then, she opened up her mouth.
And said things.

11 million Christians were killed by other Christians during the European wars between Protestants and Catholics. 20 million died in the Taiping Rebellion because missionaries thought it would be a good idea to introduce Christianty to China and a born-again local declared himself the new Jesus. 3 million total died in the Middle East Crusades. 1 million were murdered in France during the Albigensian Crusade because they believed God was actually more loving and good than His depiction in the Bible.

Sarah Palin's understanding of Christianity extends to the last 5% of its lifespan. The other 95% would have flayed her alive, speared her like a fish, roasted her over a fire and made her watch them eat her liver while praising the true Christian faith, God Willed It.

She should be thankful Christianity became tolerant enough to let her become so ignorantly intolerant.

Technically, the USA is older than all but two countries in Europe when you take into account how shiat got changed around from WW1 to the fall of communism.

Ummm...in no particular order

Spain
Portugal
England
France
Italy
Vatican

All are older countries than USA. Some of the Nordic countries probably qualify as do the likes of Iceland and greenland. Germany/Belgium are probably in the running too.

Nope.  With the exception of England, all of those countries (I don't count the Vatican) have undergone fundamental changes in their entire system of government in recent history.


o_O

So that makes them not "countries"??? Nice try, but just because France went from a monarchy to a parliamentary system since 1787 doesn't somehow make it a "newer" country than America. They may have newer governments; but the political, economic and social entities have been firmly in place for well over a thousand years.

This is a dangerous book that should not be read by true Christians. It investigates the history of the birth of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. When Christians are done reading it, it could lead them to read other books about the history of Christmas. That is when they could be lead down a dark path filled with feasts, dancing, and paganism. My advice is to stay away from this gateway book. Zero stars.

jigger:Anyway, was Palin talking about the US as being one of the oldest and proudest? For a second I thought she meant China. Not only is it basically the oldest nation on Earth

The PRC is less than a century old.  The US is ancient compared to China.

Yes, they have really old buildings... so does the US, in New Mexico.  Not the same thing as the culture being old.  China murdered the living shiat out of everyone contributing to the old culture during their revolution, that's why they have no noticeable academic community even today.

I hate to legitimize anything Sarah Palin has to say by responding to it, but here's the thing:

When the religious talk about all the people atheism has killed, they are talking about all the people who are atheists and who have killed.

When atheists talk about all the people religion has killed, they're talking about the the people who are religious, and who have killed other people for believing in the wrong religion or no religion.

That's the difference.  Sure, history's worst Communist dictators were atheists and killed people, sometimes because those people had religion, but mostly because they failed to live up to the communist ideal, generally. If we held religious authorities to the same standard, then maybe 98% of all the murders in history could be blamed on religion because they were committed by someone who believed in some god.  Atheists usually don't paint with so broad of a brush.  It's enough that religious authorities have killed, and continue to kill, countless individuals based solely on differences in religious faith.  That's special.  That's scary.

The thing that makes my ears twist here is that the notion of modern moral decay is pretty much constant. Everyone is convinced that right now things are much worse than they were back then. This is a woman who, unconsciously or otherwise, thinks the country had a better moral center when blacks couldn't vote.

According to Matthew White, there have been a total of 455 million people killed through wars, oppression, ethnic strife and or war-caused famine/disease. Of those, 47 million are the result of religious causes (holy wars, ritual killings, heretical persecution, etc.). Communist-led governments are responsible for 67 million deaths.

Communism isn't a religion.




Bertrand Russell, life long socialist, and strong believer in the Russian revolution (until he actually visited the country in 1920), disagreed.

Bolshevism is not merely a political doctrine; it is also a religion, with elaborate dogmas and inspired scriptures. When Lenin wishes to prove some proposition, he does so, if possible, by quoting texts from Marx and Engels. A full-fledged Communist is not merely a man who believes that land and capital should be held in common, and their produce distributed as nearly equally as possible. He is a man who entertains a number of elaborate and dogmatic beliefs-such as philosophic materialism, for example-which may be true, but are not, to a scientific temper, capable of being known to be true with any certainty. This habit, of militant certainty about objectively doubtful matters, is one from which, since the Renaissance, the world has been gradually emerging, into that temper of constructive and fruitful scepticism which constitutes the scientific outlook. I believe the scientific outlook to be immeasurably important to the human race.

It's the free thinkers versus the dogmatists, and it always has been. Look at the old eastern bloc; freedom of speech either very restricted to outright non existent, homosexuality condemned as "deviant", parallel after parallel with the religious right in this country (both then and now). Communists, Taliban, Inquisitors, all used the same methods, all were utterly certain of being correct. Authoritarian types cannot abide the uncertainty of non dogmatic thinking, and they will find some cause to rally around. The actual dogma itself almost seems unimportant - look at how many people in this country right now will defend the bible as "sacred", even though they've read little to none of it.

I know you're just joking, but don't.  Just. Don't.  It can irreversably fark up your brain in a way that you lose connection with reality, see and hear farked up shiat, believe in all sorts of weird conspiracies, and altogether just aren't there any more.  A lot of people come back, seemingly fine.  Maybe even the majority.  But some don't.  I lost a few friends to it, who were once smart and funny, but now walk around like zombies, as if the very essence of humanity had been violently ripped from them, leaving an empty shell.  One now requires 24/7 supervision in a mental institution. This is why, when the topic comes up, I try to discourage anyone from trying Sarah Palin for the first time.

Palin's a believer, and it did help her slide into moral decay.

Technically, the USA is older than all but two countries in Europe when you take into account how shiat got changed around from WW1 to the fall of communism.

Ummm...in no particular order

Spain
Portugal
England
France
Italy
Vatican

All are older countries than USA. Some of the Nordic countries probably qualify as do the likes of Iceland and greenland. Germany/Belgium are probably in the running too.

Nope.  With the exception of England, all of those countries (I don't count the Vatican) have undergone fundamental changes in their entire system of government in recent history.

o_O

So that makes them not "countries"??? Nice try, but just because France went from a monarchy to a parliamentary system since 1787 doesn't somehow make it a "newer" country than America. They may have newer governments; but the political, economic and social entities have been firmly in place for well over a thousand years.

Given that European countries try to invoke the supposed youth of the USA when arguing politics, the duration of a stable system of government is quite relevant.

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard you say.

Since it's you making that statement, I'll take that as a compliment.


So according to your brilliant logic I would say that the USA has only existed since 1865.

There's a difference between a civil war resulting in a regime change and a revolution of significant magnitude to hit the reset button on the vast majority of what makes a culture a culture.

For instance, Great Britain's transition from real monarchy to modern democracy was a series of bloody civil wars that gradually shifted it all the way around, but each transition kept most of the industry, customs, etc.  France's revolutions going from monarchy to democracy involved tearing the country and all of its traditions and standards down to nothing and starting over completely from scratch.

So saying the the UK is a continuation of the same nation that sent knights to the Crusades is sort of reasonable, but saying that about France is like saying that modern Mexico is a continuation of the Incan Empire or that Alabama is just the new name for the Cherokee nation.

Same deal for China.  They very intentionally destroyed or discarded everything about China from before the revolution, then started from scratch.  It wasn't just a case of new farkers in charge.

hardinparamedic: Sure they are. You just seem incapable of understanding the concept of State as Religion


That is some weird concept you have there. It is not unheard of, but it is not supported by any modern scholars. But since we deal with facts here, let me give you a counter example (Hopefully you will understand)

State atheism which is totally different from the secular state, is the official promotion of atheism. In none of the cases I mentioned, was State a Religion (which is a very schizophrenic construct if you ask me and is weak position to defend). On the contrary: The Soviet Union had a long history of state atheism, in which social success largely required individuals to profess atheism and stay away from houses of worship; this attitude was especially militant during the middle Stalinist era from 1929-1939. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/League_of_Militant_Atheists ). Moreover, Albania, China, Cuba (especially Albania) actively promoted atheism.

Nowhere in modern literature is the concept of State as a Religion to be found. By modern literature I do not mean Dawkins (I think he came up with this concept and it slowly took off).

Thank you.

Unless there is some reason that communists couldn't have been as brutal as they were unless they were atheists, it's irrelevant.
Neither atheism nor religion are necessary components in human brutality - so the only discussion possible seems to be a childish "Well, you guys are bad TOO!" type of argument. OK if that gets you off, I guess.

Fair enough. My point is that one facet or dimension, if you will, of communism (as a larger construct) is atheistic thought. Communism is not an aggregate variable, it is more a latent one (the sum of its parts is greater - because of all the interactions in this political system) and has an underlying them,e (much like the g factor in intelligence research).

Since atheistic thought is a requirement (for all good Marxists out there who don't know any better :) communism cannot be less brutal in the absence of atheism because then it would not be communism.

I know of no communist state who doesn't have in its fundamental core the promotion of state atheism (as always the degrees vary and some other have eased up on this requirement but never in their beginnings and never fully).

That would be my point :) TY
And for the record : I am all for a secular state. I also think there is no right not to be offended :) For me personally crosses in schools are ok, if the majority wants them. It sounds cruel, but that is how we elected Obama :))))

She also encourages readers to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our religious convictions and ignore the politically correct Scrooges seeking to take Christ out of Christmas.

*rolls eyes* How about a book about Christ, good works that could be done on the holidays, visiting the elderly, ideas for goodwill and some nice hymns?
Nope...instead she provides a negative book filled with trite and political rhetoric that she claims is "Christ focused." Ugh.

Honestly, she's right.  Guilty as charged.  Even though I'm not an atheist, I get an absolute thrill from wishing everyone "Happy Holidays!" or "Seasons Greetings!", just so I can see who it drives nuts.  A normal or rational person simply smiles, maybe waves, and sometimes returns the sentiment.  But when you hit on a conservative, especially a "born-again" or evangelical, it's comedy gold.  At the very minimum, you'll get a flat smile, a quivering lip, or a twitchy eye.  If you're really lucky, they'll come unglued and go full retard on the spot.  It's a priceless gift that only comes once a year; a perfectly polite, wholesome, and friendly phrase that at the same time causes those who have been driving you nuts all year long to have a stroke.  So, Sarah, from the bottom of my heart: "Seasons Greetings!", "Happy Holidays!", "Happy New Year!",  and, "All the Best in the Coming Year!"

Leave it to Sarah Palin to criticize atheism by reminding us of an era when Christianity officially and openly persecuted, tortured (in ways that made Abu Ghraib seem like a children's party) and murdered on a huge scale in the name of Jesus.

In her defense, she is such an empty-headed nitwit that it is unlikely she has any idea of what the Inquisition was.  Her home-school textbook probably says something like:

The Inquisition: An era when atheists and socialists tricked a small number of honest Christians into mildly persecuting some other Christians, until they finally got wise to the cunning plans of atheist socialists.  Scientists agree that if the atheists had been burned instead, Jesus would have come back by now.

VOCABULARY REVIEW

persecuting: Making good people feel bad (see "lamestream media")
cunning: Smart in a bad way (see "science")

Candy Colored Clown: People have been trying to moralize selfishness for a long time. They know they are self centered, but want us to not think negatively about them. Basically wanting to have the cake and eat it too. This will always lead to failure as we are are socialized animals, and the very concept goes against our nature.  Yet, it wont stop sociopaths from trying.



As I have said many times, Ayn Rand's Objectivism and Communism are at opposite ends of the political spectrum.  But both are devastating to society.   I once said this to a Navy CDR who was in uniform and he clinched his fist as if he was going to punch me, then he walked away.

Objectivism would collapse any society.   When everyone's motivation is personal gain in every situation, then society ends.
I know two people who became obsessed with the concept of Objectivism.  In each case they were divorced after embracing the philosophy.  Who would want to live with someone who will do nothing if it doesn't personally benefit them?

Evidently this 5th grader struck a nerve. You do understand the difference between believing in poorcku's particular god and exhibiting religious behavior, yes?

My premise still stands. In order to do what they did, the true monsters of history had to use the same behaviors that we usually call religion, they just used "The State" or "The Revolution" as the ideal rather than Allah or Yaweh. It's fashionable for people to say "well, they stomped on existing religions and therefore were atheists!" when in reality they just changed the name of the god.

If there is anything inaccurate in my chart, I'd be happy to hear you point it out.

I love how you talk about social sciences in one breath, and then devolve into flaming derp and insults in the next one when your positions are questioned. I also love how disingenuously you're comparing "Marxist Leninist Atheism"  with Secular Humanism, and then trying to pretend it's some kind of intellectual checkmate with no further discussion to be had.

If we're going with this, we're totally going to assign the holocaust to the Christians, since the churches were mostly compliant, right?

You might look up "Civil Religion in America" by Robert N. Bellah; it dates from the late 1960s, but the work remains widely accepted these days -- Google Scholar turns up over 500 publications citing it since 2008.

That's a bit of a poor argument. The Soviet Union's leadership very clearly were atheists - however, the bulk of what they actually did was unrelated to atheism. The harshest persecution and purges that they carried out were against fellow Communists and atheists (like the Trotskyites) for the crime of having a slightly different political philosophy, and they were quite content to spare and co-opt religious institutions (like the Russian orthodox church) if they were politically subservient.

The main problem here is that some people are under the impression that a substantial proportion of the deaths attributed to the Soviet Union consisted of them hunting religious people and killing them for no other reason than being religious, even though this wasn't even remotely the case.

3) Societal impact on individual mindsets

4) When the "Christmas season" became a thing in this country

I never saw the fun in that.  In my retail days, if someone replied to my "happy holidays" with some mean spirited political garbage, i would just say, "No.  I said 'happy holidays' because there is more than one holiday coming up, and I am hoping that I never have to speak to you again."

The whole farking conservative political philosophy is basically social Darwinism and survival of the fittest. Why does she have a problem with this?

Too many morons confusing is with ought. Just because nature is survival of the fittest* doesn't mean we have to live that way. Also, since when does a truth being unpleasant cause it to not be true anymore. I was unaware that I could make ugly truths go away like that.

*fittest in this case = able to produce the most offspring, not necessarily strongest.

Is there anything your god could command of you that you would refuse to do because it was cruel or evil?

1) If you answered no, then this is not morality, this is merely might makes right. Also, stay the fark away from me, psycho!
2) If you answered yes, then you have some other, non-god, standard of what is right and wrong
3) If you answered "my God would never ask me to do something so horrible, see #2

You get your moral values from a book that explicitly endorses slavery, outright commands the execution by stoning of children for being stubbornly disobedient (Deuteronomy 21:18−21), and the nearest equivalent available in the technology of the day of nuking entire cities, following up with conventional weapons to make sure every living thing in them is slain, and wiping the city off the map forever if apostates preach there and the people listen (Deuteronomy Chapter 13 ― towards the end, but do read the whole chapter).

One of the first things you do if you want your ideology to be ascendant is to demonize any competing philosophies. Some of us 16-year-old 5th graders remember how the proto-teabaggies (aka The John Birch Society) shouted that John F. Kennedy was getting his marching orders from the Vatican.

Stalin stomped on existing religions for the same reason existing religions stomp on other, competing existing religions. To take out the competition.

To expand on what I've said...

A large percentage of say... China has animist or shamanistic faith. No one in Beijing is losing sleep over some random hill country tribe believing this or that, they're willing to take the Roman approach there. However, things like Tibetan Buddhism or Falun Gong, that needs to be met with tanks and propaganda campaigns because it's a coordinated challenge to the philosophy they want in control.

Again, it's a matter of "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Even if that god is named "international communism."
