I think he's trying to point out that it doesn't look like the usual Imperial ship design. Or something. Maybe he comes in peace?
Is that a legit news site? If so I reckon the boy's trolling his dad. I know I'd do some something like that.
'There was spaghetti everywhere, tasty Bolognese too. Why?'
A perfect example would be the Islamic world at this point. They maintained the knowledge of the Romans and Greeks until some imbeciles rose to power who declared it evil witchcraft. Its less religion, but people who use power gained through religion, politics, military etc to damage science.
Government regulation would prevent the low grade stuff with god awful chemical mixtures. Of course, if it were to be legalised, it should be used in moderation as long term regular use may cause paranoia and make an individual more prone to schizophrenia. Also, rules about things like driving under the influence should be updated if it does get legalised... CLOSE DEM LOOPHOLES.

Not charging a monthly fee would be a good start.
I was trying to address it in relation to war, particularly how it propagates them rather than starting them. That does not diminish your point though. It is true after all.
(continue) Ultimately, its unfair to say Hitler was completely Christian or completely not Christian, due to his occult and pagan views influencing him in his later years. However, the Catholic church did play a role in assisting Hitler. Dissolution of the Catholic centre party at the Church's behest helped the Nazi's gain a majority in the Reichstag. The church also ordered the celebration of his birthday and the infamous Nazi/Fascist escape plan codenamed Ratlines was committed by Catholics.
Oh and, in case you think I'm a closet Nazi, my copy of Mein Kampf is purely for University study. Just a quick disclaimer.
(continue) How can our images be anti-free thinking? Allowing people to post whatever in relation to the group's topic and within the boundaries of the site's rules are about as open as you can get. Again, early images I can't account for as I stated previously.
The Hitler wasn't a Christian is an interesting point that I partially share. He was born a Roman Catholic in Austria, a trait most Austrian's shared with him. Most of the Nazi party were Catholic too. Indeed, evidence of this can be seen in Mein Kampf (Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord) and in various speeches (such as on from 1922, a bit long to post here but an excerpt should do;'As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice, and if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people').
While initially a Christian, it was not necessarily his primary reason for his disdain of Jews. The Catholic church had propagated anti-Semitism for some time. This propagation likely influenced Hitler and Catholic Nazis along with the common people, but a belief in a supreme race of Germanic people was the prime reason for this hatred of Gypsies, Slavs and Jews.
While he was a Roman Catholic in at least the early days, he did develop a sort of paganism that he integrated into some aspects of ideology. Of note is the appointment of neo-pagan Alfred Rosenberg as the official Nazi ideologist.
I can agree with you on the whole Christianity causing wars thing. Because, to be frank, while it has been used to propagate or influence war, most wars have been over territory or resources or because they just can be fought.
I haven't actually ever condemned HinduMan. I've criticised and disagreed with his methods, but I have never said 'Stop Hinduman, you're awful' or words to that effect. If I've come across that way then I apologise.
On the causing offense front, I share the opinion of Stephen Fry;
'It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so ******* what."
I see no reason to respect your religion. But mocking religion is different to mocking people. While I can't account for ALL the images on the page, due to having not always been a member and having taken a 2 or 3 year break from moddb, that is the general trend in the images.
We've survived 'The Great Troll War'. Now we should prepare for 'The Second Troll War'. Hopefully, we will resolve our issues, lest we find ourselves in 'The Cold Troll War'.
I have to say that I agree with this idea. While that is not to say the Crusaders are innocent of any wrongdoing. We generally consider the Allies to be the 'good guys' but was Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne etc. necessary? No side is fully free of guilt, rather, it is generally little bit more right on one side than the other. In this case, the Crusaders, at least at first, were fighting to help their Spanish and French brothers and aid their Orthodox cousins in Byzantium. A short look at what happened in the time afterwards can show you what the Turks tried to do and nearly achieved. After swallowing Byzantium, they pushed through Southern Europe and very nearly took Central Europe. They were stopped at Hungary only due to a coalition of Hungary, HRE, Poland and other forces.
You cannot fully absolve the Turks of guilt, just as you cannot say that the only reason radical muslims today kill people is because of the Western World.
What you call garbage is satire and comedy. We make light humour out of religion because we can and we find it funny. Unlike you, we don't post images with questions intended to incite a flame war or to discredit the character of individuals that belong to a certain group.
As for the topic, you could see the bible as pro life, but due to the lack of abortions back around the time period that the bible was written and inspired from, chances are there is no specific message as there wasn't much of a choice except for hoping that you don't die in childbirth.
Now we just need Francis in the tank.
I wasn't saying you were, I was explaining that those you claim are being 'bashed' are usually bashed because they do that. I apologise for not being clear, it wouldn't let me edit my post.
This provides basic, average and high levels of overview on the state of scientific consensus regarding global warming.
Also, the 3% are usually not bashed, just looked at with disbelief and then presented with evidence. Also, this 'bashed on' and 'absolute truth' thing. Science does this thing called weighing up the evidence. In this case the evidence points to human contribution of global warming.
If you fly in the face of all the evidence and sing 'la la la' with your fingers in your ears and your eyes closed, as the 3% generally do, then expect to be ridiculed to an extent.
Got to admit that Tesla has one glorious haircut.
God can't be dead. He doesn't even exist in the first place to be able to die.
I don't get why people don't accept it. I understand people arguing over the rate of it occurring but the principle is simple really; humans burn stuff. Burning stuff releases CO2. Sun rays enter through the atmosphere to the Earth's surface which warms the Earth. Normally most heat would be radiated away from the Earth. CO2 blocks some of this. Extra CO2 means more heat blocked and re-radiated to Earth. Thus the Earth heats up more. Of course, other gases also contribute such as; methane, nitrous oxide and CFCs.
I prefer to call it chocolate egg eating day. But have a good day as well my friend.
Funny thing is that those hats are actually closer to trilbies than fedoras.
