    And then there's Occam's Razor. "All else being equal" (which appears to be what you're arguing with your equivalency of all religions), "the explanation with the fewest prerequisites is most probably the correct one." Religion/god is always an additional prerequisite for any religious equivalency argument, hence, probably wrong. If it's natural entropy vs natural entropy... because god wants it that way... Straight up natural entropy with no god wins.

    So?

    "The White man" was doing a fine job of killing each other long before he came over too. What's your point?

    Let's go over to that "open carry is a bad idea" forum and see if NavyLCDR has shown up yet. They were going to make some popcorn.

    There is only one truth, and everything subject to that truth is equally true. The exciting part is that one second after death we will all know what that one truth is, and be subject to it's truth...forever.

    Why is it that what you changed from "redneck" always seem to assume that descended-from-British are the only valid Americans?

    In many parts of the country, German was the primary language until World War 2.

    I don't say you're not a "true American" because you don't believe what I believe. I thought that the point of America was FREEDOM of beliefs. If you life here, regardless of your beliefs, if you consider yourself a "True American", you are.


    Edit: I do agree the national anthem should be sung in English, though. Since it was written in English. I've never heard of anyone trying to insist people sing it in any other language...
    So instead we just Worship The Democrats.

    Just so happens the Indians were not smart enough to become civilized….sorry to mess up your utopia.

    The sheepdogs ate all of the popcorn.
