Who's to say this isn't how the American Empire ends up; An intellectual and technological backwater, run a by a wealthy elite who cynically exploit the religious fears and prejudices of its masses to pit one group of economically struggling citizens against another group of economically struggling citizens.

What exactly do fundamentalists propose people do when they are incapable of believing something that is so obviously a load of shiat?

They pretty much have. Remember kids: it's not intolerant to want to keep rights out of the hands of the Godless and the homos--it IS intolerant to point out it out when they actually say it though-- it's a danger to have freedom of religion if that religion isn't based on Judeo-Christian principles, and the separation of Church and State was just a goof that the Framers had in mind after the fiasco of the Articles of Confederation and the official faiths that each state incorporated and the deaths and damage that the brawl over said faiths resulted in was just "rough housing"...

Well, even back then, the Islamic centers of learning were always around the Mediterranean, the Fertile Crescent, or Central Asia (i.e. where they interacted with other cultures), not the Arabian peninsula.

MyRandomName: MythDragon: I used to think they still lived in the middle ages. It's nice to see they are now up to the year 1984.

What is with liberals and this myth about the dark ages. The dark ages and middle ages actually had a lot of advancement in science and technology. I know liberals love to equate religion with stupidity, but the only stupid ones are those perpetuating the myth.

I can find just as many retarded atheists as you can religious.


I was refering to them *still* cutting off hands, stoning women to death for being raped, and fanatical intolerance to others (Of course Christians were all about killing in the name of Christ back then too, but they grew out of it. Mostly), and not their wonderful contributions to the advancement of science and mathmatics. And I have been accused of being many things over the years. Dog-napper, brownie thief, porn hider....but never a liberal.

Not sure if trolling or not, so not obvious.  Truth is, there are a lot of governments out there that do think like this.  They find skeptics to be quite scary, and dangerous.

and to answer you.... NO ONE "SIDES" with radical muslims in this country unless they themselves are radical.  Not on the left, not on the right, not in the middle.

Because despite what fox news has told the people who consider "leftie" a dirty word,

the radical muslims aren't here in the usa trying to impose sharia law.  the radical christians, however, are all over this nation and are a real threat to the separation of church and state.

Really? No muslims here in the USA trying to convert us and impose Sharia? None?
