"Anecdotal evidence is useless..."
Hey! My friend's mother's hairdresser used anecdotal evidence to prove something once and she turned out to be totally right!

... Dammit, change your name to Doombot already. The real Doctor Doom isn't nearly this stupid.
4/26/2012 8:49:17 AM
the cold, hard, indisputable fact is that the vast majority of terrorism in NYC on 9/11/2001 was carried out by Muslim extremists.
Fixed it for you.

Looks like all the old gang from FreeRepublic have found another cesspool of stupidity to post from.
DoctorDoom is is usual bastion of fail.
No Christian terrorists? Try the IRA, the Ulster Front, any rabid anti-abortion organization defending clinic bombers and the murderers of doctors.
No Jewish terrorists? You might do some research into the history of Israel and you will find tons who later became prominent Israeli citizens, but let's stick to that dirtbag settler, Baruch Goldstein, who gunned down Muslims at prayer in their mosque, killing 29 and wounding 125.
As usual Doc, your'e talking out of your arse.

Ah, DoctorDoom. Welcome home, fuckwit.

Inquisitions, Witchhunts, The Crusades...
As much as Jesus Of Nazareth taught otherwise, with his 'love thy neighbor' & 'turn the other cheek'...people who profess Christianity have warred, murdered, raped, butchered & tortured FOR AGES!

"There are no Christian terrorists or Jewish terrorists or Buddhist terrorists or Hindu terrorists or Confucian terrorists. Why is that, little boy?"
Because you're too chicken, They're willing to die for their god you're not. You're all mouth.

"Anecdotal evidence is useless except to liberals, who rely on it because they have zero acquaintance with facts and empirical evidence."
I guess that makes you a stinkin' liberal if you believe in the parables, prophesy, and scriptures in your holy book.
"DoctorDerp" gets my vote.

Speaking of Breivik, why the hell is his trial not being covered by the news? That man's (and I use that term loosely) horrific attitude in court should be a news topic in and of itself!

Has this moron not heard of Northern Ireland?
Has this moron not heard of India and its Hindu/Sikh/Muslim issues?
4/26/2012 11:45:41 AM
Well in his mind he's right....the IRA aren't Christiab, they're Catholic and abortion clinic bombers are simply doing God's will.
Still doesn't change the fact he's wrong and extremely deluded

"There are no Christian terrorists or Jewish terrorists or Buddhist terrorists or Hindu terrorists or Confucian terrorists."
Uh, bullshit, bullshit, never heard of any but they probably exist, bullshit, Confucianism is not a religion. To be fair, most fun dies that mention Buddhism and Hinduism list them off as evil false religions, so you get a point for listing them alongside yours. Even so, you are wrong.
"Why is that, little boy? Could it be because Christianity and Judaism and Buddhism and Hinduism and Confucianism don't have violence, torture and murder as central tenets of their doctrines?"
Neither does Islam by your standard. The Koran and the Old Testament (which is part of Jewish and Christian scripture) both contain some pretty murderous things, and even the New Testament has some of that crap too. While I don't know about Hindu scripture, I do know that in India before Pakistan was created, Hindus and Muslims had a lot of religious conflict against each other, so that probably counts. Buddhism has the best track record of nonviolence, probably because the Buddha advocated nonviolence and Buddhists focus on the actual moral messages of their main figure's teachings, rather than the figure himself as a deity. (Take notes, Christians) Buddhism (and Hinduism and Judaism I guess) also have the advantage of not being as popular a religion as Christianity and Islam. Less followers = less potential for violence. Though there are probably a couple oddballs, and it was either them or the Shintos who oppressed Japanese Christians. (probably both) Again, Confucianism is not a religion so I cannot count it.

So I guess the IRA don't count?

Reminds me of George Carling, Bless his little heart.
"Muslim fundamentalists, Jewish fundamentalists, Christian fundamentalists, and just plain guys from Montana, are going to make life in this country very interesting for a very long time... Angry men in combat fatigues talking to God on a two way radio..."

What about if the vast majority of Muslims haven't killed infidels? As is in fact the case.
As for "the vast majority of terrorism", depends how you define it. Actually, state terrorism is a much more serious problem, and tends to produce much more casualties.
I don't understand this blind spot some people have for seeing the similarities between the Abrahamic religions, and not noticing how criticism of one also applies to the others, to a greater or lesser extent. Where else does Islam get its violence and misogyny than from the same Abrahamic root as Judaism and Christianity? @Hasher etc: Bit of a disingenuous point. These groups weren't committing violence in the name of, or because of, religion, but in the name of nationalism. They just happened to be a particular religion, and in fact, the IRA for example definitely included atheists and secularists.
It's a bit like the obverse of the bogus Bill O'Reilly argument that because Stalin was an atheist, his atheism necessarily affected his use of violence.

WE use anecdotal evidence? Have you ever seen a Christian evangelize to people? It's nothing BUT anecdotal evidence i.e. "I saw God", "God cured my mom of cancer", "God landed a plane that was going to crash", etc. Even with regard to Muslims, you use a few extreme cases and claim that all of them are terrorists, which doesn't even make sense because if all 1 billion of them (or close to it) were terrorists they'd have taken over the world centuries ago. Nothing on Earth can stop a dedicated army 1 billion strong.

No Christian terrorists except for the IRA bastards who would have killed my Muslim Palestian girlfriend with their bomb if she had walked to her flat ten minutes earlier.
No Hindu terrorists except for the Tamil Tigers who invented suicide bombing.
4/26/2012 2:05:25 PM
And no Jewish terrorists?
King David Hotel. Hebron. Deir Yassin.
4/26/2012 2:11:18 PM
@Leighton Buzzard: Jain terrorists get the magnifying glass and start to focus it on ants and then stop with paroxysms of guilt.
Why us Ctholics and Jews get on so well wth them.
4/26/2012 2:16:03 PM
My comment was pointless. From this guy's point of view, Muslim Palestinians should be killed. Because he does not think of people like Jinanne as human.
4/26/2012 2:22:09 PM
Christian terrorists: Hutaree, Anders Breivik, the Klan, IRA.
Jewish terrorists: Bat Ayin Underground, Kingdom of Israel Group.
Buddhist terrorists: Fair enough, can't find any examples of that one.
Hindu terrorists: Abhinav Bharat, Tamil Tigers.
Confucian terrorists: A quick Google couldn't find examples of that one so we'll call it two.
Now, none of these groups stand as shining examples of their faith and one could easily argue that all of them are perverting the teachings of their faith. And that maybe true. But you are unwilling to allow Muslims the same defence, purely because you don't like them.
You sully the proud name of Doom.

Fawful has seen God has a vagina on top of his penis
"Pancho Villa's gang?"
Um... You may want to call that "the Northern Division"... I mean, there's a reason it was called like that...

"Anecdotal evidence is useless"..
I agreed with you up until here. Then you fell down a slippery slope of retarded madness.
4/26/2012 3:52:42 PM
Right, because liberals are the ones who accuse scientists of being part of a huge conspiracy to undermine capitalism and Christianity.
4/26/2012 4:37:10 PM
Do you even know what terrorism even is?
