Quote# 53390

The arguments of Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett and Michel Onfray are all methodically exposed and discredited as Day provides extensive evidence proving, among other things, that:

- More than 93 percent of all the wars in human history had no relation to religion
- The Spanish Inquisition had no jurisdiction over professed Jews, Muslims or atheists, and executed fewer people on an annual basis than the state of Texas
- Atheists are 3.84 times more likely to be imprisoned than Christians
- "Red" state crime is primarily committed in "Blue" counties
- <b>Sexually abused girls are 55 times more likely to commit suicide than girls raised Catholic</b>
- In the twentieth century, atheistic regimes killed three times more people in peacetime than those killed in all the wars and individual crimes combined

87.5% of statistics are made up on the spot.

I'm almost tempted to buy this, just to see his "extensive" evidence.

a mind far far away

Wow, those are some nice, shit-covered stats. How far up your ass did you have to dig to pull those out? It looks like it might have torn something, you might want to see a proctologist.

4 No
5 Catholic girls has an equal chance to get raped, perhaps even more due to their miniskirt
6 And what countries would that be?

Mr. Vorhias

What are you saying that there are no Catholic girls that get sexually abused?

-"No relation", not true. However, only a very few wars were actually over religion (the Wars of Religion in Europe are the best example, and the conquest/Reconquista/Crusades are another.) Even those usually had territory as a major motivation.

-Hey, this is actually at least partially accurate! The Inquisition only had jurisdiction over heretics and apostates, both of which require one to claim Christianity. I'm not 100% sure about the execution rate, but it's probably right.

-WRONG WRONG WRONG.

-No idea but probably false.

-That's like comparing ... apples to space shuttles or something. WTF?

-The Soviet Union, N. Korea, Cuba, and all other communist regimes killed lots of people - but not 3x the death toll of the two World Wars!

Person posting the long Bible tract- please go away. And did you even read that before you copied and pasted it?

The long copypasta comes to you courtesy of well-known troll and basement dwelling mommys boy Troy Brooks. It has been found that the best defence is to ignore him and, denied the oxygen of social intercourse, he will depart for more productive shores elsewhere.

That and all atheists and followers of other religions sexually abuse there children.

- Sexually abused girls are 55 times more likely to commit suicide than girls raised Catholic

And sexually abused girls are 55 times more likely to commit suicide than girls raised Buddhistic aren't they?

<b>Sexually abused girls are 55 times more likely to commit suicide than girls raised Catholic</b>

You do realize that this statement makes absolutely no sense, right?

- More than 93 percent of all the wars in human history had no relation to religion
Please show your working.

- The Spanish Inquisition had no jurisdiction over professed Jews, Muslims or atheists, and executed fewer people on an annual basis than the state of Texas
This probably says more about the state of Texas than it does about the Inquisition.

- Atheists are 3.84 times more likely to be imprisoned than Christians
Please show your working.

- "Red" state crime is primarily committed in "Blue" counties
Citation needed.

- <b>Sexually abused girls are 55 times more likely to commit suicide than girls raised Catholic</b>
Please show... hang on a minute, you're saying Catholics don't get abused? Really? Do you really want to go there?

- In the twentieth century, atheistic regimes killed three times more people in peacetime than those killed in all the wars and individual crimes combined
Please show your working.

Disreg

1) Probably amounts to "I found some additional possible motive". Well done.

2) Yes true, except for the athiest bit. There were no atheists in medieval Europe, just 'heretics'.

3) Utter bullshit. Likely consists of "Well he couldn't be a Christian if he raped someone!".

4) True but blue counties = urban = crime.

5) Non-sequitur.

6) Tired rehashed argument.

12/6/2008 1:31:08 AM



1) Lie.
2) Lie, and is that number supposed to make me feel better?! Texas is our second largest state!!
3) Lie.
4) Don't know for sure, but guessing its a lie.
5) Faulty relationship, no valid comparison.
6) Lie.

"-Hey, this is actually at least partially accurate! The Inquisition only had jurisdiction over heretics and apostates, both of which require one to claim Christianity. I'm not 100% sure about the execution rate, but it's probably right."

No, they require you to be legally christian, and in medival spain that meant having been baptised. So sop was to forcfully baptise the jews and muslims and then persecute them for apostacy if they continued to practice their religion

He's probably right about the wars. Religion has been at most an exacerbating influence, not a root cause. Even the Crusades had more to do with other politics than religious zealotry.

And at Bluefinger, this is a review of a book, in which (one hopes) a citation might be provided - it does say that the book sets out to prove these things, after all.

Having said which, I'd still like to know how he goes from atheists being drastically underrepresented in prisons to being much more likely to be imprisoned. That's gonna call for some serious number juggling.

Oh, and the Spanish Inquisition indeed had no jurisdiction over the Jews... BECAUSE THEY EXPELLED THEM ALL FROM SPAIN! And the Inquisition repressed Freemasonry because "It could lead to atheism", among other things, and in 1815 being a Freemason became an arrestable offence.

"Atheists are 3.84 times more likely to be imprisoned than Christians"

Surely you mean Atheists are 3.84 times more likely to be imprisoned by Christians?

And if you look here children you'll see LIES AFTER LIES.

I think the only thing that might be true is number five.

What colour is the sky in your dimension? But then, not for nothing is your site referred to as 'Whirled Nut Daily'.

Where there's even more nuts than in a Snickers/Marathon bar. Even the "Weekly World News" has far more credibility. One word: Batboy.

- More than 93 percent of all the wars in human history had no relation to religion

Even if that were true, it cuts both ways - name any of those wars that a major religion made any serious effort to prevent or stop.
