Ok.This is what you're doing:
In any case... The argument whether there is a god or not is a purely intellectual one. That can be answered farely simply. It's not any stranger than whether there are dinosaurs on the moon or whatever (i mean, have you actually seen the back of it? You don't know!) But the trying to convince others this is the correct way to think and actively trying to convince other people who are not interested in hearing your arguments make you rather obnoxious. I'm not saying it's even a bad thing, necessarily. But there are much more interesting things to do in my opinion. The whole "let's bash some christians because they're dumb" gets out of hand in many cases.
And the "more death than anything in human history" was actually perpetrated by whom? The gubmints. Don't see you complaining about them? Elementary, selective logic. Angry at the tool, willful ignorance toward the hand that wields it.
Sorry, hadn't read ahead, at the time of posting, to see you get absolutely schooled by multiple people.
Haha! I'm so educated now. Of all the comments in this thread, of all 'the wilful ignorance' on display, all the more complex arguments made for and against, and all the partisan points expressed you felt the need to turn up after the event and take 'pop' at me with this little conceit.
Most governments until the last 100 years or so were religious in nature and their leaders claimed divine right from their god or claimed to be gods themselves to justify their rule and behaviour, so your argument really justs supports Aly's premise.
Videos like the one OP posted make me very angry at the world in general. We live in a world so improbably to exist that its the only one we know of despite our best efforts. Why cant we just see the beauty in that and accept that the universe is an awesome place. People have to keep finding excuses for things like that and turn a blind eye/deaf ear to things contradicting their views. People take way too much time to push their views onto other people, they need new hobbies.
I gotta admit, I stopped watching after the christian preacher woman said that slavery she wouldnt classify as immoral. And that homosexuality was worse than slavery. People like that fail the humanity test.
I am happy to exist. Period.
