Must have been a lot of warring of late if that's the best candidate about...

Still, it has done a pretty good job with the whole "Keynesian idea of economic integration preventing the ability to make" war thing.

>We need to create a housing bubble to replace the collapse of the NASDAQ bubble!
>Oh look the housing bubble collapsed, we better create a new bubble to replace the housing bubble!

Keynesianism in a nutshell.

It's the equivalent of pumping someone full of energy drinks when they're tired.

Okay, maybe it's dull to argue about it, but only if one or both of the parties aren't willing to actually discuss the issues and just want to dogmatically spew rhetoric at each other. Politics is fascinating.

Oh, it is, but I've taken a vow to only argue when it actually affects anything. I've spent far too much of my life meaninglessly throwing my opinions at things with no consequence.

And once again, my country's news is swamped with another story of a retard of a teenager who killed themselves because of cyber-bullying.

>People find out.
>Kill self.

I heard she only flashed them on chatroullette and some perv screenshotted it and then photoshopped it spreading it about all her friends.

True, however, it's a picture of a pair of tits, on the internet where there are hundred of thousands of pictures of tits.

Hardly worth killing yourself over.

Oh no definitely. That's not in question. But still to have your naked self paraded around in school doesn't really sound like much fun. I genuinely feel sorry for the girl.

I don't.

I feel bad for her family, having to go through that mess, but as far as I'm concerned, the girl is a selfish bitch who didn't give a fuck about anyone but herself and killed herself because 'people I know saw my tits!'

Dudes, come on, what the fuck. She coped with it badly. She was like 15, what a fucking surprise. Have some empathy for christ's sake. Neither of you have been depressed before? I happen to know that's not true.
The girl was harassed from school to school by spiteful sociopaths on the internet and it's disgraceful. Very few people her age can deal with that.

Any cause or belief can and has had have violence perpetrated in the name of it, even Atheism.

Religion gets the most notice because it's by far the majority belief and has been for most of history.

Its probably pretty safe to say that he didn't come at it from an open-minded perspective.

I'm no defender of Islam though and I should check out the studies/surveys he linked before I comment further.

I like Islam in terms of its art, music, calligraphy (EHMEGERD THE CALLIGRAPHY) and buildings.

Given that the most beautiful Christian buildings come from a period when the churches were powerful and often tyrannical it's safe to say that being beautiful is not the same as being a good thing to have around, however.

The same could be said for Islam.

Except today, it's still as backward, oppressive and violent as the Catholic church was 1000 years ago.

Except today, it's still as backward, oppressive and violent as the Catholic church was 1000 years ago.

It's a bit balanced out by the fact that Islam was pretty forward thinking at that point in time, though. I honestly think this is a phase monotheistic religions tend to go through -- I mean, when Christianity was as old as Islam is now, it was neck deep in the crusades. Those weren't exactly started by the Muslims.

Edit: Actually, no, not the crusades. Islam was that old about 500 years ago. I meant to put "the inquisition," but I put in the wrong event and then my brain filled in the details of the event I had written down. Curse you, social science degree!

Given that the most beautiful Christian buildings come from a period when the churches were powerful and often tyrannical it's safe to say that being beautiful is not the same as being a good thing to have around, however.
The same could be said for Islam.

Except today, it's still as backward, oppressive and violent as the Catholic church was 1000 years ago.
I mean, when Christianity was as old as Islam is now, it was neck deep in the crusades. Those weren't exactly started by the Muslims.
Except that for 300-400 years before the first crusade, Muslims were overthrowing Christian kingdoms in the middle east, invading the Byzantine empire constantly and attempting to conquer chunks of mainland Europe.

Islam has been since it's inception a violent religion that seeks to try and conquer everything before it.

What world are you living in!?

I'm pretty sure modern Islam isn't all that violent and I am yet to meet a Muslim who believes in conquering anything. Honestly, violence?!? The closest any of them will come to that is campaigning for the liberation of Palestine.
