Let's be honest, let's not rule out mental illness. This seems highly uncharacteristic of a sane person, even for a Muslim terrorist. This seems less like an act of terror and more like a mental illness, but who knows?


Eh!? The mentally ill aren't normally violent. Muslim terrorists are.


I never said the mentally ill WERE normally violent. Though the violently mentally ill people are violent. See what I did there? However, as right as you are, I think it would be foolhardy to assume without evidence.

I am an atheist. So for the most part my opinion is that every religion is nothing more than a crutch.

And if you start beating other people with your crutches, I don't think you deserve them.

Really Op ya going to blame an entire religion for the actions of one madwoman. People like you me sicken me and make me ashamed to call myself human. Geez I saw good men and women killed in the sands of the Middle East by those proclaiming Islam as their faith and I still hold Islam itself blameless.

The claiming of a creed does not mean a person automatically speaks and acts for everyone else who claims that creed. Try and grow more then two brain cells before venturing such an opinion.



I honestly don't care how I make you feel.


Clearly not. Nor do you have even the slightest working knowledge of the religion you're bashing.

What is with you atheist you attack faith far more strongly than faith attacks you. Faith is all that keeps some people sane after seeing and doings things you probably couldn't even imagine. Men and Women of actual faith are not as insulting as you atheist always are towards them.

I like this analogy.


And this case doesn't have much to do with religion, as many have mentioned. It's a mental health issue.

That being said, the Russians aren't going to take this case lightly.

I'd dare say calling religion a crutch more then qualifies.

Well, think of it like this.

Picture a 12 year old weeaboo kid who is fanatically obsessed with Naruto. Kind of cute, but mostly annoying.

Now imagine if that was a grown man / grown woman.

That is how an atheist views religion.

We can tolerate the equivalent of casual fans... but there are no casual fans of Islam.
-----------------------------

Also if you are talking to an imaginary friend to help you get through trauma, I don't think that counts at all as being sane. Maybe temporarily stable at best.

Finally what the real problem with faith is, is that it's based on some person / group's agenda, and its power completely stems from blind tradition. Why do you believe in Christianity / Islam / Judaism ? Because your parents raised you to believe in it. You were given that crutch as a young child, and you haven't learned to walk without it.

The only religion I have sympathy toward is Buddhism, I will have to look into it, but Buddhism to me seems like more of a "Yes you can!" religion than a "Listen to me!" religion.

So I guess his opinion is attacking faith now? lol

Do you always attack someone who has a different opinion than you? You should probably go see someone for your anger issues.

Really this trite and stale argument is your reasoning to attack faith. You can honestly look around the universe, at the glory and folly of it all and go meh..It was some damn accident or whatever. You can not honestly believe in something greater than your own selfish desires and wants. Even some of the greatest scientific minds of all time had no problem with faith, some were even believers themselves.

If you think humanity is all there is to existence I feel sorry for you.

I think JC has more important things to worry about then Islam like why we've turned the day of his death and resurrection into a freaking commercial holiday of chocolate and freaking egg laying bunnies.
