Look back at who brought the religion and 9/11 into this this thread. You
wrongly suggests that I'm being confrontational on this. I merely have an
argument -- an /open/ argument -- which deals with the knowns and unknowns. I
don't censor opposing opinions on those subjects. I am actually a lot more
forthcoming than most. Regarding your comparison to homosexuals, this is
different for two reasons: 1) these issues are evidence based (can be proven and
disproven empirically) and 2) I do not insult homosexuals, nor do I insult
religious people or homophobic people. I challenge what they are claiming, which
is not the same as insulting.
Let me clarify that my stance on religion is that it affects the daily lives of
everyone, especially in more religious countries like the United States. So it
matters when policies are made based on one's faith (invasions can be genocidal)
and bringing to question claims is only reasonable. I am not _at all_ suggesting
bursting someone's bubble on his/her deathbed. Please don't use this red
I could say a lot more, but it's OT for this forum.
