Re: Communism Europe and the evolution indoctrination
I was going to stay out of this thread but I gotta point something out.

This kind of bullshit argument is on the same line as stating that the nazis took everyone's guns away before they made the shit hit the fan when arguing against gun control.
Pointing out an extreme example of what appears to be the other side of the debate is always bullshit.
Here is another one of these bullshit argument that is more obviously bullshit.
A sees B stuffing food down his toddler's throat because the toddler, like every other toddler, has been hardly eating anything today.
A: you know, it's not good that you're force feeding him like that.
B: if I don't feed him at all, he will starve to death.
A: well, I'm not saying we don't feed him at all. But he could choke if you force feed him like that.
B: hitler starved millions of Jews to death.
A: what the hell has that got to do with anything?
Beretta, be a good christian and stop with the bullshit. I've been seeing you make such bullshit arguments long enough.

Thanks for your opinion Taz but I just have to say that your argument makes no sense.
Let's look at another example if this concept is too hard for you to understand.
A few months ago, as an effort to argue against global warming, Buzsaw made a pathetic attempt at ridiculing global warming by saying that us liberals are hypocrites for arguing against making too much carbon dioxide emission into the atmosphere. At the time, I scratched my head and then continued reading. He went on to explain why we were hypocrits. Apparently, us liberals were suppose to be tree huggers, and since plants use carbon dioxide, he reasoned that us liberals were suppose to want as much carbon dioxide as possible in our atmosphere.
Of course this reveals Buzsaw's extreme ignorance on this front. But more importantly, it reveals that he's really got no real argument against global warming and therefore proceeded with a bullshit argument.
Here is a much more obvious example. We all need water to live, right? After all, it makes up over 70% of our body composition. If I were crazy enough to want to argue against the importance of water, I could say to you "hey, if you think water is that important why don't you live in the bottom of a lake?" The obvious answer is you'd drown, just like the obvious answer to Buzsaw's position about carbon emission is that the plants would literally drown in carbon dioxide if given too much of it.
Beretta, again, making an argument against something is one thing. Trying to warp the situation to a level of absurdity is simply bullshit at best. Let's go back to the comment that you made that made me answer.

You were using the communists as an argument against seperation of church and state. You used an extreme example for your argument, which should be clear by now is bullshit. Us wanting the freedom for everyone to worship or not to worship whatever god(s) they want has absolutely nothing to do with communism. Stop with the bullshit argument and actually come up with something good for me to read. Nobody is suggesting we try to force everyone into an atheist. And certainly nobody is suggesting we take away everyone's bible.

Re: Evolution as dogma
Do you have attention deficit disorder? There isn't a single thing in your post that is anything even close to a response to my message.
