    Preacher is in the final lap of his thesis, or dissertation, or whatever the hell you call it in Divinity. Or at least that's what I understood.

    Wow. I'm glad to see that we've resolved all of these issues once and for all, and that no one has had to post anymore on the topic. On to the economy now...

    Re: God, Theology, Dogma....

    Why is that the main question? Because it is way too convenient to just say "These Muslims hate us because of their religion." "They hate our freedoms." "They will convert us or kill us," and so on...

    Re: God, Theology, Dogma....

    Your assumption appears to be that being Muslim is a definitive trait. The perpetrators of the 9/11 massacre were boozing and whoring it up before the attacks, and citing US military presence in...

    This is a "God, Theology and Dogma" thread. To that end, we are discussing - among other things - the atrocities committed in the name of the various religions. The claim is being made that Islam is...

    Re: God, Theology, Dogma....

    MCHammer, the quotes of quotes of quotes are getting a tad too unruly for me, so I'm going to respond to one or two at a time.

    Firstly, it doesn't really matter if Bush actually believes in the...

    Because George Bush, the US president who launched the war, said point blank that God told him to do it. He also repeatedly referred to both of our current wars as Crusades. I take him at his word....

    The Crusades had little interest in "spreading the faith". Recapturing the Holy Land was an attempt on the part of the Western Church in Rome to score points within the Eastern Church, who had...

    I happen to think that Islam is a worthless crock of ****, just like Christianity. Being a non-believer, I will be first against the wall no matter which group of wackos takes over in the future. I...

    Where to begin, indeed. If you're not comfortable with starting in 1948 with the creation of Israel within Palestine by Western powers, then I would suggest beginning instead with Operation Ajax in...

    And yet they are not occupying our "Christian" nation - we are occupying theirs. I believe there is something in the New Testament about "you will know them by their deeds." You can call Islam all...

    Not new universes... which would be quite spectacular, I'm sure. The article says that they are capable of creating their own host galaxies. That's a little different, wouldn't you say?

    I'm not sure how it relates to our previous debate, but it is, if nothing else, new information (or perhaps just a reinterpretation.)

    Fair enough. But, you know, I do live in the United States of America in the early 21st Century. If I haven't figured out how to get along with Christians by now I never will.

    I simply quoted Russell. If you feel he has misunderstood that bit of scripture, you can take it up with him in the next life. :wink:

    Re: God, Theology, Dogma....

    You come to us from an evangelical religion (Christianity) and you ask us why there is a need to show others how you feel? That sounds like a bad faith argument to me.
