Didn't mention Armegeddon once. But a world wide conflagration of religiously fueled hate is enough to send me looking for a place to hide. Oh smack! This is the only place! (unlike theists I don't believe in an afterlife). We can not allow these theocrats (Islamic, Xian, Judeo political leaders) to continually take control of the conversation with outmoded ideas of religious honor and revelational ethics. (As a side note; Putins religion is POWER. The Chinese worship the state.and it's all powerful also(Read the Analects from Confucious, Hobbes would be jealous. Communism/Socialism is not a modern idea.) As an atheist I simply think that even when we discuss world politics our arguments must always be put forth in the most Naturalistic terms possible. Atheists, secularists, freethinkers, whatever, should strive to place all of their arguments in the context of a single earth theory as we aren't sophisticated enough (or "Enlightened" enough for that matter) to be able to even conceive of a better place to live. Nuking anybody at any time is not something a rational person would think of as a solution to anything. The only solution is science.

Or, build  second, third and fourth floor to Israel so every square foot has four storys, then each acre is assigned to a stupid religion alternating floors. the top floor would be for solar energy only. The bottom floor would be made off limits so you could not be certain whats below you.

There is only one solution to the middle east problem. Give them 30 days notice that everything must be removed from within 25 miles of Jerusalem and then Nuke the place so well no one can argue about it for 200 years.

I am not nervous about Armageddon, but I am nervous about war with Iran...didn't we just end this same movie with Iraq?  You are correct about Russia and China not following suit this time.  I would say that makes direct American involvement less likely.  I am nervous about it though, I really don't want another war.  As to the Republican Party---they terrify me, they want to take our country back to the 19th century or further!

Well, I'm more nervous about overpopulation, global warming, and food supply or lack thereof.  The perfect storm for Armageddon (well, to me) is a religious fear, not a rational one.
