Yes, but for many “why” should not be answered with wishful thinking, and for many “why” is irrelevant, but I don’t fault anyone for answering “why” with their own desires and wishful thoughts.
I am not too worried about it. I have been able to connect better with believers and honestly I struggle every day to create a more united world, I want those who believe to be accepting of those who disbelieve, and I want those who believe to accept those who believe. I am not worried, I would risk my life to see a more united, peaceful, understanding world, where people stop demonizing one another for having different beliefs, a world where people can come together and put aside their diffrences, a world where we can be more understanding of why violence takes place, a world where we can unite under the banner of peace and love, where people do not judge each other because of race, ethnicity, religion, political views, or anything like that, but instead we love each other based on behaviour. You can be a believer or a non-believer, I don’t care, but what I do care about is how you behave!
I’ve read the article, and I actually know the guy and find most of what he says emotion driven. Not sure what you’re trying to get at here? If you have a mind of his own feel free to share your thoughts and I can share mine, but if you want to copy and paste material on anon without even saying what your point is then you should go talk to someone else.
why would I judge you? I would recommend doing other things to alleviate what you consider problems in life, but I don’t fault people for believing in God when it is the only solution. So long as people’s belief in God does not make them feel like they need to force their beliefs on others and have their beliefs impact anything except their own inner self, and as long as believers do not feel like they are at a higher moral ground than those who do not believe then I am pretty certain almost no atheist has an issue with it.
The horrific pictures of the beheading of American reporter James Foley, the images of executions of alleged collaborators in Gaza and the bullet-ridden bodies left behind in Iraq by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant are the end of a story, not the beginning. They are the result of years, at times decades, of the random violence, brutal repression and collective humiliation the United States has inflicted on others.
Our terror is delivered to the wretched of the earth with industrial weapons. It is, to us, invisible. We do not stand over the decapitated and eviscerated bodies left behind on city and village streets by our missiles, drones and fighter jets. We do not listen to the wails and shrieks of parents embracing the shattered bodies of their children. We do not see the survivors of air attacks bury their mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters. We are not conscious of the long night of collective humiliation, repression and powerlessness that characterizes existence in Israel’s occupied territories, Iraq and Afghanistan. We do not see the boiling anger that war and injustice turn into a caldron of hate over time. We are not aware of the very natural lust for revenge against those who carry out or symbolize this oppression. We see only the final pyrotechnics of terror, the shocking moment when the rage erupts into an inchoate fury and the murder of innocents. And, willfully ignorant, we do not understand our own complicity. We self-righteously condemn the killers as subhuman savages who deserve more of the violence that created them. This is a recipe for endless terror.
I’ve watched a couple of short segments on youtube. I think such shows needs to used to create more love and unity.
depends on the man, the biggest gift you can give me is love :)
Well, seems like you had a nice day at the beach. I don’t typically observe penises that closely but yes I have been to nudist beaches and penis sizes do vary.
They will stop leaving once war and conflicts end! When economies are not so hampered and screwed over.
This is why I have been so strongly opposed to any wars in the Middle East, they keep ruining societies and countries even more and fool people into thinking something positive will come out of it.
The day that people are just left alone to build their nations I will be the first to go back to the Middle East and help in the process, though I would never give up being a Canadian, this is the country I love and grew up in. I pay my taxes here and work in every way possible to maintain this great country what it is today, which includes looking at the problems Canada has and faces and working on coming up with solutions to improve.
