    started a topic "Religion is the opium of the people"

    "Religion is the opium of the people"

    "Religion is the opium of the people" is one of the most frequently paraphrased statements of German philosopher and economist Karl Marx.
    what's your view about this wise said ?
    what do you think Marx wanted to say or to point ?

    you're right, that was what Karl has meant....agree with yaaa

So when you see coeliac person you hate from wheat flour... Don't look at the stupids see the good examples ...
    You didn't respond to the specific points in my post, did you boy?

    Apart from the fact that banging your head in mosque during salat induces opiate addiction to the endorphins produced in your brain as a result of banging your head, it also results in a huge deficit in reading ability due to poor reading comprehension skills...

    Ummmm no, I have no wish in joining a death cult founded by a peadphile, rapist, thief, liar and murderer named Muhammad bin Abdullah which, apart from dogma that encourages its cult membership to rape, murder, enslave and thieve from non-membership also induces self-harming behaviour such as the aforementioned banging of head against a mosque floor which induces damage to the frontotemporal lobe region of the brain and an addiction to endorphins - causing an endless cycle of headbanging an additional braindamage.

    Yes, pay attention boy! You were telling us that you had left here forever...



    Seems Nursi wrote the above drivelling shit while on an endorphin junkie high

    I wonder what sort of a opiate junkie high this headbanger is continually having....

    ?robably he was prone to drug dependence. Otherwise he would have said "Religion is the vodka of the people".

    so too do those banging their heads in mosque for an opiate rush to the brain of things like serotonin. Peadophile Muhammad's death cult of Islam and its compulsory 5 times a day headbanging in mosque for true believers is literally religion bringing opiates to the people!

    On the same veins, genetics had been developping a lot during the last decades and the genome of a bonobo is indeed about 99% the same as a standard human. Genetic is, by the way, supporting a bit more what Evolution actually says by showing the different degrees of similarities among the species. It's very helpful to classify them more properly and to understand the Evolution in a better way as it could makes radical changes in the theory.
    I actually don't believe in 6000 years old universe. This and flat earth do not stand in the face of obvious science facts. But to evolution I'm "agnostic". And science should be something more than "we can safely assume"

    It's not a problem of the theory of Evolution actually. What you say is putting out that there is a problem with the pythagorean theorem because you don't know the side AB and AC... Not knowing every processes of any species is just normal, the opposite would be quite scary actually, especially when it comes to paleoanthropology.
