Jesus was nothing more than a seditious charlatan. He should have been nailed to the cross much earlier in those days. He had a good run but like all cult leaders his luck ran out. It’s time to grow up America.
Uh most of the world is religious and more importantly not falling for u western twats pro zionist atheist propaganda. And how is saying there is no god when man doesn't even know more then 5% our own oceans make sense exactly?

“Living in Zambia, where the latest Demographic Health Survey (DHS) shows that 390 women die in childbirth for every 100,000 births, Mofya’s death was sad yet was nothing new.”
“In the United States alone, 16.7 childbirth deaths occur per 100,000 births.”
“Experts have attributed the rising number of American women dying in childbirth to the C-section rates”
I would like to see c-section death rates compared to c-section death rates and natural birth death rates compared to natural birth death rates. It would change the numbers a little, don’t ya think? Your crooked comparison aside, all you have to do is look at the 2005 World Health Report to see that ninety percent of women who died during child birth did so in a developing country.

It’s interesting how 90 percent of women who die during labor are from less developed countries where there’s plenty of prayer but no modern medical facilities. Science beats prayer nine times out of ten.
Hmm, interesting point. And just where do these scientists get their abilities?
US is 39th in childbirth deaths behind many developing countries.

Islam inhibits learning. So does Christianity to a lesser extent. It isn’t about race; it’s about the greatest con in history — religion.
"get wisdom, get knowledge, get understanding" ... doesn't sound like a message of remaining ignorante to me ... how about you?
" I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life" ... that pursuit (mentioned above) it to be honest ...TRUTH.
YOU and others tell YOURSELF christians are ANTI science FACT is (truth) ... the TOTAL opposite.
You encourage you own ignorance.
"the greatest con in history" ... actually is ... "did God really say?"
Amazing how you can be so right and wrong in the same breath.
Kind of like the Roman guards that put the sign over the cross of Jesus ... "King of the Jews", in mockery. Yet, it actually was the truth ... KIND OF IRONIC ...
You do not know your history. Christianity promoted science an learning and Islam did also for a time. They both established large institutions of learning. Most all the colleges come from being established by churches. There was no inhibition. There was questioning at times when it appeared that scientists were taking God out of the equation, like with Galileo and the sun centered solar system. But all these scientists during the scientific revolution were God fearing Christians. Nowadays, they all attribute their intelligence to themselves instead of where it really comes from.

That’s the difference between atheists and creationists. Unlike creationists, atheists don’t pretend to have all the answers. We don’t pretend to be the center of the universe. We completely understand that humans are beyond miniscule when compared to a universe with 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars — and that’s only our observable universe — words can’t describe how insignificant we are.
The ONLY true understanding humans have of how we got here has been obtained through science and mathematics. We atheists understand that we’ve evolved to pick coconuts and run from predators, not postulate the origins of the universe and therefore it’s no surprise to us that we can’t and don’t understand everything. But we’re not going to blindly jump on the bandwagon of some ape contrived “explanation” from thousands of years ago — before we even knew that the earth was round and orbited the sun.
Creationists are pretentious know-it-alls. And they know nothing of true marvel because their eyes are closed.

Several of those scientists, given all we’ve learned, most likely wouldn’t be believers today. Only nine percent of elite scientists in the United States believe in god; that’s near consensus.
July 22, 2013 at 5:28pm
Who says that you have to live your life in apathy because you don’t believe in god? Sixty five percent of Japan doesn’t believe in god; are they all apathetic? Just because your belief system makes you feel better, doesn’t make it true. You’ve made several untrue assertions and all you’ve managed to do is display your ignorance. Realize that those are your views perceived through your religious perspective.
All that we humans know is that we’re an ape species spinning on a rock that’s 4.5 billion years old in an obscure sub-section of an expanding universe that’s 13.8 billion years old. If a book or anyone else tells you that they know more than that, they’re lying to you. As an atheist, I can tell you that I love my family, nature, music and a good meal — no apathy here. Additionally, I feel a poetic sense of joy when I look out into the night sky and know that every atom in my body was created from stars that exploded billions of years ago; I don’t have to believe in fairy tales contrived by apes to appreciate my place in the universe. Maybe you do, but that’s your issue.

You can tell people to take responsibility for their actions until your blue in the face but it’s not going to change genetics or the environment in which people are raised — it’s just not — it’s been tried. Any person, whilst relaxing in their cushy arm chair, could dream up the perfect world but unfortunately, it’s not that simple and humanity is not that black and white. Until earth is inhabited only by perfect humans who can perfectly control themselves, abortion is necessary.
July 15, 2013 at 9:57am
You don’t have to support abortion in a political sense to understand that they’re necessary. Murder, war, famine, plague, abortion — all things I don’t particularly like, however, biologically, they’re all necessary to stymie population growth and help maintain the overall health of our species.

You don’t have to like it but abortion is necessary.
Have at it JACK! Like it or not, the pushback comes when you expect as well as legislate that I pay for your, "necessities"!!!!!
I cannot BELIEVE you just said that. I thought I could not be shocked by ANYTHING coming from the pro-abortion side, but congratulations. You won the prize. UNBELIEVABLE. Killing babies is necessary?? Really? May God have mercy on our country.
647,156.3 Abortions tis yr
34,299.3 Abortions after 16 weeks
6,277.4 Abortions from Rape/Incest
Do not tell me it is necessary to take a Babies life for ANY reason.

Apple- or or here me out here because I know it's revolutionary... But what if we don't murder babies and take responsibility for our actions! Gasp* I know shocker!

Applejack - Abortion is NOT necessary. It's just convenient for irresponsible sluts. Why should they have an easy and convenient life when they chose to be irresponsible?

She has been a great judge. She hasn’t allowed the defense to railroad her — tough and fair — great job.
She the one doing the railroading. The precedent of this farce of a race baiting political trial is nothing but black appeasement and white guilt on display. Whenever a Democrat says "I am fair."
She's not objective and is not professional. She's a affirmative action queen bee.
A bad judge and all her cases should be up for review whether Zimm is convicted or not. Same goes for the prosecutors who withheld evidence and info from the defense since January 2012.
Did you not catch the third bullet point?
“She will make certain rulings that may be more favorable to the prosecution,” Kimberly Priest Johnson, a Dallas-based federal criminal defense lawyer, told WTSP-TV.
Yeah, that's really fair, ain't it?
People who consider themselves "fair" or " honest" usually don't go around announcing it, as if they have to prove it.
George Beard must have had this judge in mind when he stated, "Those who the gods will destroy they first make mad with power." There is no excuse for her rude, pompous, and arrogant behavior. I do hope I am around when "the gods" deliver the karma to the Judge Judy wantabe.
I'm fair....really I am....I promise....Why won't you believe me?!!!
A Kangaroo judge running a kangaroo court. What a joke.
I am not sure what trial you are watching but it can't be the Zimmerman trial. Railroaded by the defense?
applejack, one thing I have noticed over the last few weeks is that Martin's supporters are a fun combination of insane and stupid.
one thing I have noticed over the last few weeks is that Martin’s supporters are a fun combination of insane and stupid.
Martin is dead, so he doesn't have "supporters." A few of us are defending a teen who got into a verbal confrontation with a thug, threw a punch at him and ended up dead. Most on both sides of the aisle have politicized this case. There's nothing "fun" about this situation. Make no mistake: no matter the outcome of this trial, we conservatives will have hell to pay.
"A few of us are defending a teen who got into a verbal confrontation with a thug, threw a punch at him and ended up dead"
Really? You admit the kid threw a punch, but still call Zimmerman a "thug?" How is Zimmerman a thug for defending himself? As enabled to gun carriers by Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law, when Zimmerman felt his life was in danger, he shot Trayvon to protect himself.
You admit the kid threw a punch, but still call Zimmerman a “thug?”
Well, it's quite obvious he broke Zimm's nose, isn't it?
This shooting happened about a year and a half ago, and I've laid out my case in great detail. You'd have to go back and check what I've said. :)
I call Zimm a thug and give Martin a pass for two reasons: the difference in age, and how a responsible man responds to a perceived threat. First, I don't expect a teen to behave the same way as an adult. Even a kid who has gotten himself into trouble in the past deserves a chance in life. He was too young to measure the consequences of his punch, regardless of whether Zimm deserved it or not. After all, Zimm has a rap sheet too -- which most conservatives gloss over -- including physically assaulting a LEO. The only reason Zimm didn't end up in jail before was because his dad was a magistrate judge.
Second, any gun owner knows you don't wait until the other guy knocks you to the ground to pull out your gun. Zimm claims he saw the "punk" coming at him, but instead of shouting a strong verbal warning, (or even drawing his gun), he reached for his cell phone. That's a truckload of BS, and you know it.
If Obama were not in the picture, I doubt cons would be rallying around Zimm. Now we've painted ourselves into a corner because of a lying Dim. How stupid is that?

None of you have any proof that any war since WW2 has had any effect in keeping the united states and its freedoms safe — 0. So, I’m not jumping on the nationalist band wagon, thanking every service member for my freedom because quite frankly most of the vets who actually are responsible for my freedom are dead. If you want to know the truth, I pity service members and I certainly don’t hold them in higher regard than doctors or scientists or engineers.
July 11, 2013 at 11:02am
Who cares if he’s a vet. The article should read “The graphic death of a homeless person” instead. Nobody would write “The graphic death of an ex-carpenter.”
Since when does a carpenter or any other profession put his life on the line and make the personal sacrifices of his freedoms for the freedoms of others? You obviously have no idea what it requires to be in the military and are clueless about the value it brings to others. Without a strong military there is nothing, you money is worthless, your material world is gone, your freedoms end, your food is taken. Idiot
I care that he's a Vet. Although America's carpenters over the years (no, not the illegal ones) have made their bones and are to be respected for the tough work they perform... I think this brings attention to the plight of homeless Vets across America. And they deserve to be highlighted in a special way.
we got your reference to Jesus Christ.
Since only 0.45% of Americans actually raise thier hand serve in the US military, it can stay. By the way, you are welcome for the blanket of freedom that all vets provide for you. Next time just say thank-you.
An ex-carpenter hasn't served for his country, and if he has then he would be given the title ex-vet, How stupid a comment over a man who was brutally killed WHO HAD SERVED to protect us all and was given a final title of ex-vet. You obviously have not served your country. Shame is in your corner whether you feel it or not,
None of you have any proof that any war since WW2 has had any effect in keeping the united states and its freedoms safe -- 0.

If you want to know the truth, I pity service members and I certainly don't hold them in higher regard than doctors or scientists or engineers.
With great respect to military veterans, carpentry can be pretty dangerous work. And there are a lot of military jobs that don't involve any contact with an enemy and are less dangerous than framing houses. And none of the military branches protects "freedom", they protect the Constitution. It's up to you to protect your freedom, and you don't get to subcontract it to somebody in uniform.
It would be nice if articles like this would specify whether someone is a combat vet or not. Mr. Hallowell isn't to blame; there does not seem to be any reporting on Mr. Mohr other than that he was a "homeless veteran". Sad, this man was labeled and cast aside by society in life (homeless vet), killed, and even after death we know him by his label and not as a human being. Maybe if we treated people like humans rather than labels we could prevent this kind of tragedy.
So Applejack, by your reasoning our military could have disbanded in 1945 and America would still be around in 2013? Keep believing that fantasy, I bet you believe in solar power, electric cars, government can create jobs, and welfare is just temporary assistance.
@Applejack: Why don't you jump back into a cereal bowl and drown yourself in milk! You are a first class, no brain, no heart idiot!
Careful, Applejack. There's a large contingency of Americans who blindly believe every soldier is a heroic freedom fighter. They'll hack you to death for impugning their un-Christian culture.

First off, the man is a buddhist so he doesn’t believe in god — why would he say under god if he doesn’t believe in god? Secondly, how did he wipe his rear with the flag when he just pledged allegiance to it? Too tolerant? What then would america be protecting? It certainly wouldn’t be his freedom of speech.
The country that was “protecting” him placed he and his family in an internment camp in 1942 — and he still loves his country, the country he was born in — that speaks volumes.
Soooo, why is he a punk? Because he doesn’t believe in god? Get over yourself.

It’s ironic how critical the right wing media is of the “main stream media” for “race baiting” whilst their publishing the same garbage on their own websites. They know very well that their white and/or racist readers are going to racially react to this story. It’s pathetic.
