The Local _ International affairs _ Another terrorist attack in Finsbury park

Posted by: NoworNever 19.Jun.2017, 10:20 AM

I am wondering why the Islamophobic mainstream media such as BBC (Bullshit Broadcasting Corporation) and their deaf n dumb followers are reluctant to post the recent terrorist attack done by a Islamophobe.

Senseless violence which will just inspire more of the same.

It doesn't matter who or what you call them, it was/is bound to happen and there will be more...It's not pretty but it's a reactive situation...

According to Wikipedia region is “Religion is any cultural system of designated behaviors and practices, world views, texts, sanctified places, ethics, or organizations, that relate humanity to the supernatural or transcendental”. It also states that region goes back some 40,000 years. In other words utter BS.
Region is the root of all evil and sooner people abandon it the better, only then can we exist together.

These attacks are more about hate...which is the medium on which evil exists. And, GH, payback (or in other words an eye for an eye) just results in everyone ending up blind.

Uncle, I have heard people express this before. Let me take a counter point. I believe there is a God and He/She created the universe. Certainly this view is no more "out there" than believing in some big bang theory. Now if there is a God,as I believe, and He was able to create the universe out of nothing, then He is far beyond our human comprehension. Religion, therefore is man's feeble attempt to explain the unexplainable and pay homage to something that is far, far beyond our understanding.

Because religion is inspired by God, some parts of religion gets it right, for example when it speaks about loving our neighbors and following basic laws so as to be able to exist together in a harmonious way. However, because religion is created by man, some if it is faulty or has been twisted to help those in power stay in power. This is not the work of God, but of man.

In reality most religions inspire people to be peaceful. When is the last time you heard of a Buddhist terrorist? There is to my knowledge only one major religion that inspires hateful acts against other humans and there is a reason for that. When the historical Muhammad was formulating his religion, at first it was a peaceful time and his musings reflect that in the early parts of the Koran. However, as Muhammad grew older and moved from Mecca, things became more violent and so did his writings. Some Muslims draw from the peaceful parts of the Koran and are kind and loving people. Others are inspired by the later, more hateful passages.

I will say this about the Jihadists who think that killing people in the name of Allah is holy...I say bullsnack! God does not want us killing one another. Furthermore if you think you will be rewarded in heaven with a bunch of virgins...you have missed the message. Besides that, heaven is a place for our soul and I don't think the penis is part of that deal. So what good is a bunch of virgins if you don't have any equipment? And even if you did, a virgin is a lot like a new car, once you drive it off the showroom floor, it is no longer a virgin.

My point was payback can be expected, I did not condone it, and it will happen again...

If you believe in god then that is your entitlement, however one word is going to give you a problem, as you say "if".

And your beliefs are your entitlement. Note: my beliefs do not entitle me to kill you because of your beliefs.

"But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion"

Belief seems to certainty entitle others to kill others and those people who think their entitled are religious people.
So where does that lead us.

Precisely, that's why religion is the root of all evil.
