Ah, the sound of crickets... nothing dumb to disturb the tranquility of a board unperturbed by assh*les.

I would like to invite Charles to visit the fine English city of Coventry and trust that he enjoys his stay.

Welcome to Coventry

While the rest of us enjoy a normal, peaceful and productive service.

Hi Charles,

So basically you don't like religious people because many followers of religion kill in the name of religion. 

To put things on perspective. There are about 2,500,000,000(2 point 5 billion) religious Christians and Muslims in the world combined. What percentage of those people would you say go around the place murdering others?

Comment by leveni on January 6, 2012 at 5:37pm

Hi Alecks,

The only thing I despise more than intolerant religious people is intolerant non-religious people, usually because they feel more entitled to themselves.

Sounds like something Oscar Wilde would say.

Chimpanzees seem to know what's on other chimps' minds.

Sorry. I cannot seem to figure out how to post the link, so I just copied and pasted the url. I found this to be an interesting article about how chimps may be able to know what is on other chimp's minds. Could they possess theory of mind?

You can turn off those notifications, but it's an all or nothing proposition.

*SIGH*

The worst part is, the I can't even disable email notifications! I always end up with a flooded email inbox from silly things like this.

Good point.

I am officially done with the discussion.

This topic would prob. be better served in another group.

I do apologize. I got wrapped up and lost focus.

Comment by Kyu on January 6, 2012 at 1:54pm
In all fairness, Patricia, this is the first time I've seen a person of Charles's nature here on A/N. He is not indicative of the quality people I've found here.

My princilples are the armor that protect me from falling prey to the hate you espose.

To answer your question: Education.

Education is the best weapon against ignorance. Our reason and believe in science and what we can prove is what brought us here. To give that up due to monsters of this planet only allow them victory.
