I'd say this guy was trolling but you'd need balls of strawberry floating steel to do that in the middle of a violent mob.

So, this is rather alarming.

Do these people not see the irony in the way they are handling the offence caused by a video condemning muslims as violent and hatful?

Hopefully other countries will follow France's lead and show the world will not walk on eggshells, scared to fart incase we somehow insult muslims.

I'm staring to love full of piss and vinegar Silva again. :wub:

The french magazine should be lauded for their stance on this issue. The sensitivity of some Muslims to anything other than reverence for their prophet and religion is very scary at times.

The example of the crusades is a curious one as that what Christians claiming back our Holy land from the muslims claiming it was their Holy land with the Jews still claiming it was their holy land in the first place. Jerusalem has been deliberately placed at the centre of that struggle - not because of it's natural beauty or resources. Solely because relgion demanded that it be and relgion has always been about seizing the place of power and appropriating it's importance and allure for your own little sect.

Look at the superb stich up job that Christianity did to paganism in this aspect - burial sites/festivals etc all appropriated for the faith.

Chicken and Egg all the time with Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Fighting over the same old gooseberry fool for centuries and will continue to do so for centuries more. Million of lives lost and will continue to be so.

All for a contest on who has the best invisible friend or who's prophet (or schizophrenic) has the best stories.
None of us can ever really dismiss the idea of God's existence as you can never fully prove he doesn't exist (religions best ever parlour trick and one that still has plenty of mileage) so we're stuck with this farce for the forseeable.

I'm an atheist.

However, when I'm feeling mischievous like to think that there was a God and if we could speak to him his rationale would be somehting like this:
Yep - made the whole lot for you - evolution was my idea - i thought i'd kick things off and see what happened. Then when man came along (alright i gave it a nudge told em to get off their arses and use their hands! my Bad! :oops:) i thought - here we go - enlightenment, knowledge understanding - the world's in safe hands - i'll leave em to it.
Comes back several millenia later

Why is the film not listed on IMDB? Is it too small to be listed or is it being censored?

I actually want to watch it just to see what it says.

I don't think IMDB lists every shitty short people post up on the internet.

Anyway, that Pakistani minister is now guaranteed himself a criminal charge. I doubt his government is going to be very sympathetic. Not every smart.

Dude, if there is ANY god out there, this would be his rationale

And that's it.

What kind of a prick god would create a whole universe for the sole purpose of sucking his dick? What an ego that would be.

I was thinking, some of the implications of the main religious texts are pretty disturbing. I mean, out of all the billions of people who have ever lived, God has apparently only seen fit to talk to men most of the time. There are a handful of women but not very important and never as prophets. This would imply that the creator of humanity views the female gender as inherently unworthy and that's even before you get to the gooseberry fool actually written about gender roles in thins like the Bible and Quaran.

He also only saw fit to talk to people in a certain religion, which happened to be one of the least civilised and thuggish at the time (compared to Asia, which was already quite advanced in literature and art). You'd think he'd have sent his message to everyone everywhere. Unless he deliberately chose the most backward party of civilisation because he thought they needed it most? I don't know.

To be fair, the Universe is pretty impressive.

They're strawberry floating stories from the olden days which reflect their culture :lol:

Killing people over fairy tales and gooseberry fool, goddamn.

Bronze Age and later fables can certainly have their charms if they are treated as myths in the same manner as Greco-Roman, Norse and Native American mythology is, I must admit. Most if not all of them will undoubtedly have some kernel of truth at their hearts, some basis in real events, too... but I'll be strawberry floated if I'm ever going to believe that they happened as they're told today. Millenniums of embellishments and poor translations from language to language make them the longest running games of Chinese Whispers in human history and little more.

Funnily enough, the only places mentioned in the Bible/Quran are the ones known to the Jews/Arabs, no mention of the Americas or the Han Dynasty :fp:

Also wouldn't you think God would've sent his message to the Indians or Chinese rather than some illiterates in the arse-end of nowhere.

Agreed, no religion certainly is better than Islam.

It annoys me how some religious people from other countries in the east assume all people in the uk or America are Christian or Jewish. All this week there's been Muslims on the radio talking about how they don't make fun of Jesus or Moses so why are Americans doing it to Mohammed. Shows how culturally unaware they are that they think entire countries are or should be governed by one religion.

Also getting sick of Pakistan now. I know it appears to be a minority protesting, but the fact a minister has offered money for the film creator's murder and yet still keeps his job is baffling. If a minister did that here he'd be thrown in jail.

Feel sorry for some of the Muslims in this country who do practice their faith peacefully and are nice people. At the same time I'm all for these cartoons, certainly as long as threats of violence and murder continue.

Well over half the people in America classify themselves as Christians, the idea that the West is Christian is a pretty old world view though.

So basically, religious people are a bit dim.

That first picture could mean anything without something to tell us what the colored 0-75 scale means.
