Re: CHAOS in Norway

Turns out that instead of some crazed muslims, the suspect they arrested is a white, bona fide Norwegian (I was surprised by this and so were you) Anders Behring Breivik Surprised, why? Because the alleged attacker was as lily-white and non-muslimy as Petri Gerdt? Islamic terrorism accounts for les...

Re: Metal Legends Accept reunite without Udo Dirkschneider!

Funny that they got Schwarzmann, UDO's old drummer (Stefan Kaufmann, the drummer from the classic line-up, switched to guitar after a back injury and has been in Dirkschneider's band for more than a decade). Sounds like a cash grab to me, but if they produce something good, I'll check it out...

Re: Recently seen movies

9 Rota wasn't particularly much worse than much of the stuff that comes out of Hollywood (now, there's a ringing endorsement! ;-)). Though, as far as Afghan war movies go, I thought Afganskiy izlom was better (which, if I'm not mistaken, shares a director with Taras Bulba).

Anyone into these guys? Very good Finnish melodic death band. Their second-to-latest album, "Deadlight", is absolutely awesome. The single off that album, "Deadsong", even received quite a bit of airplay on radio. As you might have guessed from the titles, the lyrics are mainly about sunshine, puppi...

"Whistling through the graveyard" was originally a Churchillian expression that was used to describe Stalin's refusal to accept the reality that war was coming between Germany and the Soviet Union.

Re: What would happen if it were PROVED there is No God?

"Whistling through the graveyard" is apparently a favorite pastime in many parts of the world these days, particularly in Europe. Stalin did this even as he signed off on the Nazi-Soviet pact, and only to be engaged in ferocious combat not long thereafter. I have no idea what you're saying here. Th...

Re: What would happen if it were PROVED there is No God?

I whole-heartedly agree with NeonVomit. The teachings of Jesus, to be kind and loving to one another, to be humble and recognise one's own imperfections and to be charitable, does not require the existence of a God to be true. The Buddhists have a notion that everyone, regardless of religion, are cl...

Why tell only Christians that God does not exist? Why not buy a billboard and declare God's passing at the neighborhood mosque? Jesus was a fairy tale, and Mohammed was not?

Excellent band. They hit their peak with The Dark Saga and Something Wicked..., but the other releases aren't too shabby either. Ripper does quite well for himself on The Glorious Burden. He's no Matt Barlow (or Rob Halford), true, but then again, not many singers are.

Unfortunately, it seems that the mere mention of God's name causes the smug factor to go through the roof with some atheists. Not to mention with some Christians. Atheists typically "evangelize" that Christianity itself is "based on fear and control", which in and of itself, shows a remarkable lack...

Re: What would happen if it were PROVED there is No God?

I agree somewhat with Stealth, in that if someone claims there is a god, the burden of proof would be on that person making that claim, not the other way round. Faith is by definition irrational. If we had evidence there is a god, it would be called knowledge, not faith. That said, how exactly would...
