“In the Middle East there are three taboos that people don’t talk about: religion, sex and politics. In the meantime we want our society to modernize. It’s contradictory.”

    Everyone knows Religion is an obstacle to progress, I really feel for Mohammed. He’s in a retarded shithole with no light at the end of this tunnel.The answer to this problem is beyond me. The church has entirely to much power in these Muslim countries and people seem to powerless in the face of the penalties imposed by the church. This religion on crack. Good luck.

    When are you guys gona learn that:There are more questions than answers. Some questions will only be answered in the next life.

  5. Ernie Says:

    What next life is that tech? How do you know you’ll live forever? How do you know there is a part of you that will carry on after you die?

  6. Dan Says:

    No one here is denying that there are more questions than answers. It’s just that, unlike the religious, we’re not filling in the questions with made-up answers conceived by way of folk tales thousands of years ago. (Like that bit about an after-life.)

  7. Ernie Says:

    And tech it is perfectly acceptable to say you do not have the answer.

  8. Eric Says:

    No doubt, “I don’t know, that’s a good question” is the most common answer you’ll get from a scientist. Only religion is arrogant enough to poop out an answer for everything.
