Topic: Liberty: One of imagination's most precious possessions.
Posted: Wednesday, October 29, 2014 5:06:15 PM
Tyranny consumes the personal liberty of the common man. Liberty as defined by the patriots who fought against tyranny during the revolutionary war was possible then, and is possible now. But alas, it may take another war to find it again.

Religion won't solve anything, it never has. It is a control system, that's all. National Socialism was a religion.


It still is.

It's time humanity waved goodbye to organised religion & moved on with our lives. We need to evolve. We are only 200,000 years old as a species. If we can't move on we are genuinely doomed.


Good idea. Now, if you really want to get your message out, try posting it in an Iranian newspaper in the form of a Muhammad cartoon.

It seems to me that one point might be that all of the politically correct liberals that tote the party line
about the Muslim religion being one of peace might want to take into account honor killings, the killing of
Christians, dhimmitude, clitoridectomy and so on. What you or I am in favor of is of little consequence in
the face of what is stark and real.

You said Geeman: ‘This thread, and many of the views expressed here, is that it is the religion that is the primary motivation, rather than the myriad other causes that are being dismissed. That just doesn’t add up.’

Yes it is a potpourri of motives that I acknowledge. For some, though, the insult to their religion it is the primary motivation. They of course have, in the main, been manipulated by others, a smaller element, who have different motives.They are the drivers of the car. The religious element are a bit like sheep… easily led and incited to a direction. The movers rely on this fanaticism, which is a common thread in man’s history. Isn’t it what political leaders have always done? They however do not use religion as the catalyst, but nationalism or patriotism... whereas religious leaders use religion and so do terrorists or idealists.

You cannot take out a major ingredient and have the same cake. The fact that many can be incited says something about them surely? You have to have base or unreasoned inclinations at the beginning for them to be kick-started into action.


You further said: But the big question is: Why does it matter? Well, it matters because if you buy into the argument that religion is the cause of this conflict then one completely misses the real causes, and have no chance of dealing with the causes of the problem and, therefore, solving them

So what then is the real cause? Is there a single cause? I doubt it. One could say it is incitement to hatred… revenge … ‘justice’… outrage. One could also bring in the fear of neighbour and what the perception would be if one did not act in protest. There are so many elements. But what is plain is that the men behind the scenes see religion as a major force with which to manipulate people. That must say something about the adherents to the said religions.


VERY well said, Percival.

Are you a Muslim Truthseeker? I ask because the following statement by you is off the wall and is just the type of comment relayed by extreme Muslims.


You said: 'Let's lend approval to murdering Americans because of their freedom of speech.'

Are you saying that freedom of speech... even if misused... justifies murder? 'Oh I can kill and maim because he hurt me or offended me with words.'

Muslims are not violent, on the whole, but a goodly section of them are undoubtedly extreme and murderous and have a warped view of what pleases Allah. The god of the extremists surely does not exist... if he does he is a blaggard.

What is this bunkum about vestigial virgins? Who in their right mind would want fifty of them in attendance? Who dreamed up that number?


If you go back and look at the post, you'll see that mine is a response to HWNN, who argues for approval. Mine was merely sarcasm. I think it's totally ridiculous to defend those who either murder or stand by and do nothing while others watch - in the name of Muhammad, or any other prophet.

Read again. Hope this clears things up a bit.

yes. Let's allow dissent and not mess with those who disagree. Let's lend approval to murdering Americans because of their freedom of speech.

As for Troll.........is that the best you can do? Surely, even with a limited vocabulary, you can use a thesaurus to find more more inflammatory words than that.

Whatever you do, never let facts get in the way of your opinions. They might change your life forever. And you don't want to do that. Let's let government pay for everything until all the wealth is gone. Then we'll all be equal - and poor. Have you seen the movie "Hunger Games"? With a little less dramatization, THAT is the America that our sitting president wants to take us to: Everyone equal - and uniformly poor - EXCEPT for those in power.
