Uh, where exactly did we disagree?

Gah.


Reminds me of the racial profiling fallacy - whereas "racial profiling" is just basic statistics, people will have you believe that it's racist to think a Muslim is more likely to be a terrorist. The phrase itself is very poor; something like "statistical profiling" (or better yet, profiling) would be much more accurate.

Exactly. Described by some guy on Youtube as the "Pussification of America".

Everyone's too afraid to voice their opinion, for fear of offending someone. But facts don't lie, and making facts essentially "socially illegal" because someone finds a fact embarrassing is pathetic. Educating that Muslim != Bomb-vest is a million times more effective than acting butthurt about the truth, it's annoying, and their efforts could be much more beneficial if spent otherwise.

The point is though a lot of people are not and we are constantly fighting and waging wars over which religion is true and let me tell you no mater and i mean no matter what you do it will not prove your is the truly the one we just cant be doing this any more it is time to be more tolerant and spread not war or hate but peace and love.


I can see why you're upset. Unfortunately, many people who are upset with the way things going in their lives can definitely influence others in a negative manner. I personally don't believe in "world peace", as this is abstract, which makes me upset. However, let's face the facts - no person is the same religiously, ethically, morally. There will always be bad in the world, unfortunately, and it makes me upset. What you CAN do is encourage and positively influence without personal and biased opinions to others as much as you can to make smart decisions and avoid conflicts. In the end, you will be happy and not upset.
