Regarding nuking mecca it is a bad idea. Firstly no one can destroy mecca since it is guarded by angles.

Yep. Any you would know since you have tried it oh-so-many times.
The only protective angles I know of are:
1) the steep angle - to deflect powerful blows from robots or cannon fire
2) retroreflectors - to return any laser fire, thus damaging the robot attacking you.
I don't think Mecca has either.
Why are they discussing nuking Mecca in the first place?
More Christian \"love\"?
Isn't it square? So then it is protected by 45 degree angles?

Actually, I think they're really Saxons.
No, no, BurntBush. It's obtuse angles ;)
Obtuse like the OP?
Yes, that is the reason we shouldn't NUKE PEOPLE. You have identified the only good reason. (and I lack a moral compas?)

Of course there's only one sure way to test that little theory.
And actually a box is composed of 90 degree, or right, angles.

Well, in the Quran it says that Mecca is protected by god.. There is a story of a man who attacked Mecca before, and was killed by a army of birds armed with rocks. Some claim there is historical accuracy to this, however I really can't prove it.
This guy is taking something to literally, and is just being foolish. He isn't really a Fundie, at least not just by this paragraph alone, but more of a person who goes by to literal of a translation.
You mean we spent trillions on ballistic missile defense when all we needed were some geometric shapes?
Mecca and Allah's turdrock are not protected by geometry, thank the Lord.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki could have used some. Not enough fundies around?
I think there are some Mercians too... But why bother with Angles? For protection by Dark Age Brittish tribes you want a good horde of Picts.
, pretty much the definition of fundie is their literalism. As is belief in ang
. Despite evidence to the contrary, they probably also don't believe in angles.
Yeah, they said that about the temple in Jerusalem too.

It's got a kennelful of Hounds of Tindalos, obviously.

Those sharp angles make it invisible to radar, and the exhaust is cooled to prevent heat-seeking...
"Firstly no one can destroy mecca since it is guarded by angles."
Obtuse ones, no doubt.
I have two ways to go, let's try both!
I wonder how advanced geometry gets before it protects from nukes.
Really? Let's try it! After all, it won't do anything.
Ah, so when you read about the groundbreaking work of the Caliphate's mathematicians, you know these guys were REALLY ahead of their time.
Missile defense shield!

That's what I thought of when I read it.

Trigonometry is quite handy defense against ballistic missiles, eh?
