Snad,
Well said, its because they want to believe it was anything else other than a terrorist Bombing campaign.

most wars have been fought in god's name, which is stupidly ironic. god is love and yet we kill over it

As an Ex Soldier with 23 years service this is one thing I could never square away, so never had anything to do with religious groups of any kind.

Eliko , I have posted my views on religion many times on this forum. There was a time in my life when I was asked while in Sri Lanka , visiting a Temple full of people praying , If I had the power to switch off religion from these people by clicking a switch would I do it. I looked around and caught sight of the devotees and answered my friend ABSOLUTELY NOT ! That was in 1981 I was 35 years old then. I'm now 60 , much wiser much firmer in my absolute belief in the non existence of a creator. The same question posed to me today would receive an
ABSOLUTELY YES answer. As posted earlier I consider religion to be a mental rape that we all endured as children , indoctrinated and brainwashed by our parents and the system , just as our parents and their parents and so forth and so forth. What you must understand is that it is religion that is the driving force behind most wars . What divides people and tells them that they are better than others because of their religious beliefs is the poison of religion. What right does anyone have to impose what his or her parents imposed on them. They put the fear of God to the extend that there are religious bigots who think that unless they grow a beard they will not enter paradise. What absolute nonsense. There is is not one iota of evidence of a creator , on the contrary there are billions of reasons as why there is not. As far your comments about my comments insulting religious people well that is tough. I have a perfect right living in the Western world to have such views just as religious people have the right to carry on with their idolatry.
Further more let me tell you I have had my fair share of life's troubles and tribulations and still have them right now .My faith has kept me going. I never once turned to Father Xmas for guidance neither to Zeus , Athena , Apollo or Jesus.
Another comment that you made about immigrants searching for a better life in the West . I was one of them way back in 1961 . But my dear when at the age of 15 I arrived on my own at Victoria station in London I knew instantly that the nation I was in was ENGLAND not a part of Cyprus , Turkey , Bangladesh , Pakistan or any other nation. I came here on my own free will to search for a better life. People today arrive mostly by default ie asylum seekers , illegal immigrants etc etc. They bring with them a culture and a set of ideas that are more suited to medieval times , ie forced marriages , honour killings -Yes in the UK - a code of dress that makes them stick out like a soar thump. No effort at all to integrate and become part of this nation. These are the people I call peasants

By the sound of the second link, I figured we'd see film of King Kong beating up the towers with Bush's face edited in. What more proof would we need?

Gangsta rap. I'm disappointed! When I haven't got anything better to do, maybe I'll try to make the vid I was hoping for. Don't hold your breath, though. :lol:

Superman was also seen by thousands hovering above the WTC minutes before the first plane flown by none other that the Joker crushed onto the building. What I want to know why did Superman not intervene or on a serious note why not the Creator , is that too much to ask .
