I like what they’ve done with language too. For example... Taking a noble word like “martyr” - and turning it into something else entirely.
“A statement of simple fact is not bigotry”.
True, but hard to enforce.
Nonsense. He can't be forced to defend (or retract) anything. He may simply leave his comments to stand independently, and let other people do what they want.
Arabs can copy other peoples’ works and make clones of existing technology, but they do not (and never have) created NEW technology.
Just as the left needs to go back to the Crusades to discuss Christian “brutality,” they need to go back to the same time period to discuss Muslim “accomplishments.”
What an athiest scumbag! richard’s just jealous because muslims have more nobel prizes than he’ll ever get in his life, and they invented calculus when all he did was create some bogus “theory” (if i can even call it that) about animals changing. He doesn’t ever know what he’s talking about!
Where the heck has he been living? They are called "hate-facts", and they are a certain indicator of bigoty.
The phenomenon of the “good German” is like Spanish flu, which didn’t start in Spain and wasn’t limited to Spain.
We’re all susceptible to some degree.
Watch the atheist liberal talking heads defend islam from atheist Dawkins! Ain't it grand?
True enough. That's why I used the term "good German" to describe those Muslims (typically not German) who may be decent people on a personal level, but who tacitly support, enable or at least fail to oppose the horror of Muslim rule, its expansion through the use of force, and the imposition of Sharia law.
I hope I didn’t sound like I was correcting you. Just making a general observation.
Regarding the horrors of muslim rule, lately I’ve been helping a pal with a website about the Armenian genocide, which will soon be at the 100-year mark. Over a million deliberately exterminated by a muslim government. It had the hallmarks of Holocaust, the savagery, the deliberateness, the numbers. Yet the US government still avoids the subject and the Turkish government still denies it.
Dawkins is in a wheelchair? Since when?
Or did you mean Stephen Hawking?
Therefore, Islam and other religions practiced by third world people are usually exempt for reasons of political correctness (and because unlike "bigoted" white Christians, Muslims behead people and blow things up for perceived slights).
"Muslim Learning" consisted of taking the knowledge of societies they conquered. When Muslims stopped being able to conquer, their societies decayed.
Not long ago atheists were bemoaning the fact that Christian Europe didn’t get overrun by the “superior islamic civilization” during the middle ages. Atheists would lament about backward Christendom prevailing over the scientifically advanced and socially liberated islamic world.
You stated an absolute: “No Jew kills...”. You did NOT put any time limit on your claim. I stated 3 facts that disprove your statement. You agree they disprove your case, but claim that since 70 years have passed these facts don’t count. Didn’t you show Nobel Prizes dated more than 70 years ago? So, you display evidence over 70 years old that helps your argument, and you reject evidence more than 70 years old that disproves your argument. You won’t be getting a Nobel prize soon.
Finally, your blood libel that I hate the Jews. There is NOTHING in my post - not words, argument or tone - that shows even the merest whiff of hatred. I am posting FACTS to rebut a false claim.
Your reaction to FACTS you dislike is to deny their relevance when you are using the same time period, deny a proven fact, ignore the third, and then hurl an unfounded blood libel.
Truly poor form. Pleas have someone proof your arguments until you come up to speed, and have someone else craft your rebuttal. It would help your case.
Yeah, Hawkings. My baaaaad.
Those were Persians.
Once the moslem persecution of Dawkins really gets rolling, he may learn that there was a pretty good reason for Crusades after all.
Minor quibble, but I can think of at least one Muslim Nobel Prize recipient in physics: Abdus Salam (Pakistani)
I agree with about half his statement. Muslims didn't do anything noteworthy in the middle ages though. Often algebra, and 'zero' are mentioned in this context, but both these concepts were stolen from India, and were not developed by muslims. Everywhere you find acceptance of muhammed, you find ignorance, repression, and death. This has been true since the time of the pedophile forward.
Thanks Kip Russell.
