"free" weapons. I don't think I've heard about that one before. I'd say First, Sixth and Fifth aren't all that common.

I don't belong to any Relgion or faith, I rely on cold-hard logic and sciences. But I'm pretty certain only a small minority of children that have been sexually abused. I think the number is around 4,500 total cases, or something like that.

for the Fifth. "free weapons" is kind of ambiguous. Unless stolen, weapons aren't free. They're actually pretty expensive, depending on the make and model. Gang members probably purchase them too, probably for much less, but still paying for them as well. Then there is the second term of free as in "freedom of" which Is still bullshit as there are many federal and state restrictions on firearms. and lastly the picture shows a member of a gang and a child. Which is further bullshit and gang members almost never actually harm children, but rival fued members. Children by death of "free guns" are again a minority.

Sixth is bullshit as Fast food isn't the sole cause of obesity. Even in children. It's moderation and parental neglect. That's like blaming it on your forks and spoons that you're fat. Fast food purchases aren't the healthiest option, sure, but EVERYONE knows that. So the ones that are still going obviously don't care.

To be honest I'd rather live a short life eating whatever I want, then a long one where I must look after my health at all times.

I don't disagree with any of your points, but eating whatever you want doesn't lead to a clean and simple short life. It leads to a moderately long (40-50s) and a very complicated (health issues) life. What you eat has a very clear impact on your well being and state of existence. It can just take several years for health issues to show up. It also effects your brain chemistry and many other things.

So... I'm confused. From the information I see, I can't tell what this thread is about. The title suggests we should be talking about the impact of a religious figure, the opening post suggests we should be talking about a picture using a symbol often attributed to a religious figure, and the posts following the opening post suggest we should be talking about a religious figure's impact on a symbol used in a picture using a symbol often attributed to a religious figure. Since "Jesus, his impact" could be referring to "Jesus' impact on the symbol used in the picture," and the picture does indeed contain that symbol, it would seem that the third option "we should be talking about a religious figure's impact on a symbol used in a picture using a symbol often attributed to a religious figure" fits the bill -- it covers all three possibilities. The picture is obviously, in the context of the thread, just a demonstration of what a crucifixion looks like.

Alright then. So what do I think about Jesus's impact on the symbol of crucifixion? I had always thought that, as far as symbols go, crucifixion had more of a negative connotation associated with criminals. But today, crucifixion is used more as a symbol of a particular religion, or even as a source of hope for some people. Seeing as this was probably not possible without Jesus, one might be tempted to say that that righteous dude is responsible for the popularity of the crucifix as a symbol. However, he couldn't have done it without the church, and since really, Jesus has been almost completely absent from the process of spreading news about his death (with exception to some nice chats he had with his buddies when he came back), I'd say that the church that was made after him is more responsible, and really, it seems like the crucifix is more symbolic of the religion itself then the actual "being" we call Jesus. So, I think his impact was minimal. He only needed to die -- the church did all the heavy lifting with regards to advertising.

I wanted to talk about what I thought about the picture and it's meaning, but I don't really want to stray off topic here, so I'll leave it at that.

Personally, older than 60 you start getting all sorts of problems anyways. Lucky ones scrape away with hardly any diseases. Some, maybe only Alzheimers. But let's be honest, how many elderly are truly happy and healthy? Health deteriorates in everyone. Jeanne Calment died after 122 years and 164 days. and Calment smoked from the age of 21 (1896) to 117 (1992). And she died of natural causes. Not even cancer. So It all depends one one thing. Happiness or Health.

“Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination.”

The only thing that's annoying about this thread is the OP. I'm sure we can all agree.

Heh, I'm not really debating philosophical points. I'm simply stating that you need to eat your fruits and vegetables or you will get health problems even as early as 20's and 30's. I'm not talking about random chance, disease or genetics. I'm talking about simple nutrition. It's not a philosophical point of whether or not eating poorly can cause depression, we know it can. I just wanted to mention that in case any younger people are reading because people don't need to be encouraged into a false sense of philosophical comfort to support their poor eating habits.

What you put in your body becomes a part of you and if you're malnourished and overfed (as a lot of Americans are) you can find yourself very miserable and unhealthy in as early as your mid 20's. Even some teenagers are suffering from symptoms of poor diet, but don't understand why.

I know, right?

Comparing the right to bear arms and the fast food industry, which admittedly have unintended negative consequences, to willfull acts of exploitation, abuse and murder is ridiculous.

Exploiting the religious beliefs of 2 billion people to make the point is vulgar and insensitive.

Ok. this makes me . Why, you might ask. All of these are consiquenses of human ignorance and misuse of power. God has nothing to do with greed, murder, how sick your mind is, how ignorant people are, or how simply inhuman people can be when someone has no power to appose them. God gives free will of choise, action and thought. That is why the Bible says in Mark 10:21 "Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me." This rich man here was perfect acourding to the ten comandments but he hadn't given away his free will to God . The free will of people is why these things happen to children. Except the fast food thing then that falls on parent ignorance and americas inability to raise children to respect authority.
This was ritten in anger so forgive my last remark. There are lots of fine parents out there.

What does this have to do with Jesus? :/ crucifixes were used before Jesus

The art is clever though, I'll give them that.
