“Countries with a high percentage of nonbelievers are among the freest, most stable, best-educated, and healthiest nations on earth. When nations are ranked according to a human-development index, which measures such factors as life expectancy, literacy rates, and educational attainment, the five highest-ranked countries -- Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands -- all have high degrees of nonbelief. Of the fifty countires at the bottom of the index, all are intensly religious. The nations with the highest homicide rates tend to be more religious; those with the greatest levels of gender equality are the least religious. These associations say nothing about whether atheism leads to positive social indicators or the other way around. But the idea that atheists are somehow less moral, honest, or trustworthy have been disproven by study after study.”-Greg Graffin

Number of people in the American military: 1.43 million (google search)

Number of muslims in the US: 3.45 million (pew research center)

Again, if a significant percentage of them were plotting your destruction, there would be far more impact on your life than watching over-sensationalized media broadcasts about it happening every few months in the US.

Yes, Islam is a popular excuse for violent people to commit violent acts in this day and age; people would likely find another excuse if Islam did not appeal to them. Yes, we need to have a serious talk about radical Islam and what we can do to counter it. No, I don't have all the answers to that, but the answer is NOT to harass people who are muslim and not hurting anybody. This is America, and we have a thing called the First Amendment, which- surprise!- guarantees that anyone can worship any god they please, or none, and not just yours, as long as they are following the remaining laws of the land (like not murdering people. Which is something well over 99% of muslims abide by.) There is no fundamental difference between punishing all muslims for the violence of a few, and punishing all gun owners because some wacko shot up a school or a church.

All of them. A religion by itself doesn't make you a crazy fuck, being a crazy fuck and having a religion gives you an excuse to go do violent shit. And there are those in every religion.

Can you prove that Zeus doesn't exist? Or unicorns? Or a teapot floating around the asteroid belt, inhabited by a tiny alien that's hijacking my Netflix account? Of course not. To assert the existence of something, to make a claim beyond our immediate observations, places the burden of proof on the person making the claim. And since there seems to be no evidence to support the claim presented- in this case, that the universe is a simulation- then there is no reason to believe in it.

Not to say that it isn't a more viable concept than some beliefs. As far as I know, the idea doesn't directly conflict with reality, but I've not observed anything tangible to support the idea either.

Jesus child-raping christ on a rocket scooter. One fucking person on this site comes out as muslim and assholes come out of the woodwork to make debate after debate, all to just say 'Fuck Islam'. Do you seriously not have anything better to do, or more intelligent to talk about?

Fine. Here you go. Yes, radical Islam is a problem, one we need to take seriously. People are going to use whatever excuse they can come up with if they are wanting to commit violence, but unfortunately, Islam is a popular choice these days. At the same time, there's 1.8 billion muslims in the world. Most of them just want to get to work in the morning and take care of their own business, and there's no reason to give them shit just because they worship a brown god that's also worshiped by a bunch of fucking lunatics. If 1.8 billion people wanted you dead, you'd fucking know it. If one percent of 1.8 billion people wanted you dead, you'd fucking know it. Or you'd be dead already. Now can we please find something more interesting to talk about?

OK. We haven't been back to the moon, and yes, that's bullshit. We need to get back to the moon and then get our asses on Mars. But that's another debate.

As far as the telephone: Do you really think that a telephone can't be wired to a radio transmitter and broadcast? Come on, that was probably the easiest bit of electrical engineering involved in that mission.

Here's a little food for thought: if we faked the moon landing, the Russians had EVERY reason to call us out on it. Shit, they would have jumped at the opportunity to so thoroughly embarrass the US, and they would have done it gleefully. They'd still be laughing about it to this day. So why didn't they call us out? You mean to tell me that our government constructed a conspiracy involving thousands of NASA workers, especially during a time when infiltration of NASA was a Soviet priority, and constructed such an elaborate, perfect lie about a scientific milestone so profound and iconic, that we fooled the USSR?

You give our government way too much credit. It would have been easier for them to just put a man on the moon.

If someone marries themselves, are they hurting anyone? No.

Do all parties involved (one) consent? Presumably.

Are all parties (again, one) capable of consent? No reason to assume not.

Does it in any way affect anyone else in their day-to-day life? No.

The way I see it, there's no victim, therefore there's no crime. I don't know why you would want to marry yourself, but people do it, and it's not my business. Let them live their lives. As far as who gets the remote... Now I guess we're wandering into the realm of split personality disorder, and I guess the one in charge when they sit down in front of the TV picks a channel. At least you don't have to worry about domestic violence.

Sadly, the US government will never allow it. Put the money toward suing Cali for infringement on constitutional law, and you might have a chance.

Also, I don't know why this comment is bold and italicized. Just ignore that.

Pass the popcorn. This three-year-long train wreck has been better than Netflix.
