  • Has Barrack Obama really been that bad a president?

    I'm from the UK so don't have a thorough grasp of what's gone on, but I kind of like the guy.

    I'm from the UK so don't have a thorough grasp of what's gone on, but I kind of like the guy. He's pushed through some difficult but honourable bills (e.g. Obamacare), has mostly fostered peace (if you don't count drone strikes I guess), and has led North America through a very difficult recession which any leader would have struggled with. Is what I perceive as a rise in opposition to him because he hasn't gone far enough for democrats, or because he's pushed the boat too far out for republicans and centrists to follow him? OK, I'm getting a general consensus here. He's been dreadful and I don't know what the heck I'm talking about (I already knew that last bit to be honest). @Dinamuk Roberts: Lol, nice comment. Indeed we do have politics here in Britain if you can call it that. Our version of democrats are just as neo-conservative as our version of republicans though, so it doesn't make a huge difference who's in power (ever see the South Park episode about a sandwich and a douche? It's relevant) @StopBlamingBush: I apologise for any offence taken. I wasn't meaning to meddle in your affairs merely to inquire about them, I didn't think for a minute you would want to be like the UK (heck, most of the UK doesn't), and I'm pretty confident we are a fair way off from needing a bail out from Germany. In fact since we are not in the euro-zone and refused to join the central European currency system, I think Germany wouldn't be under any obligation at all to help @Victor: This sounds familiar to my own county's system. Labour (democrat kind of) got rid of free university education so now the poorest are largely excluded, lowered taxes on the rich, privatised the railway system, and basically did many things that were antithetical to their previous ideological stand-point. We are also told that they were extending education to all and helping the less well off. They weren't. Our current Tory (republican) government seems almost identical on the left to right scale. @Mittens: Thank you for that answer. Our government copies yours in many ways. Blair copied Clinton for example, using focus groups and centrist politics to gain widespread support. The new administration under Cameron and Clegg is also centrist, so much so that it's sometimes hard to see the difference between the two government's ideologies at all.

  • Question for Theists and Atheists?

    What do you believe is the real probability of a infinity knowledgeable, infinitely powerful and infinitely loving human-like creature that creates universes? Just to make this clear to Theists; I am not talking about god here. I'm merely questioning whether this is an acceptable premise, and whether it has any real credibility? Please... show more
    What do you believe is the real probability of a infinity knowledgeable, infinitely powerful and infinitely loving human-like creature that creates universes? Just to make this clear to Theists; I am not talking about god here. I'm merely questioning whether this is an acceptable premise, and whether it has any real credibility? Please answer honestly if it tickles your fancies. @Foghorn - I mainly just wanted to try and make it so Theists wouldn't take it that I was suggesting their god doesn't exist, purely so I didn't get flooded with Fireball answers defending multiple religions Also, for people that are saying that God isn't infinitely knowledgeable etc. need to re-read my question. I actually made it extremely clear I was not talking about your god; though in my experience many Theists do suggest that their God(s) are infinitely loving, powerful and knowledgeable.

  • I Am An American Muslim & i don't support the church in Florida,to host a "Burn a QURAN Day"! Do You?:)?

I Do believe the act of 9/11 was a horrible horrible act and the people behind it should pay! But they are not true muslims! If they where they wouldn't of killed a human. That is not our religion, it is not a violent one. Besides Some American scientist believe the american government were behind this since they are the ones who benefited most from the attack. With the right they received after it. Although I love america and many americans at that, I don't believe burning our holy quran is the right thing to do! We are not terrorist! Please Please help protest :( And write your opinion below. This is not me hating on America or americans ,this is me exposing the truth and asking for your help ,please people from all places. You wouldn't like someone burning your holy book. Thank You, and I'm sorry this is a long rant. Islam is translated into english. The english version may have said we support killing. But the original Version is against it and supports love,compassion etc! So don't believe everything you hear please And thank you all for your support,understanding and opinion .. :) Have a good day

  • If there was a test to prove whether a baby would be homosexual, would Christians be getting more abortions?

    I hope I didn't accidentally offend anybody, and both Christian and Atheist perspectives are welcome. Quit it with the APA talk, this is a hypothetical. I thought this question would get more STARZ.... So tempted to block everyone who decided to preach to me because they're afraid to answer a hypothetical.....

  • Have you noticed how pretty much everyone with an animal avatar accepts evolution?

    My (psychological) hypothesis: The fact a person would choose an animal avatar is a sign these people appreciate and enjoy life in all its forms on this planet. They therefore tend to seek to understand it. You don't get far learning about the animal world without also learning about evolution. Reverend Soleil: Good point, but we already have... show more

Reverend Soleil: Good point, but we already have intimate knowledge of that species from birth (for obvious reasons). Learning about other species takes a bit more curiosity.

If you actually do have a thumbs down it wasn't me. :)

  • Why am I doubting that God exists all of a sudden?

    I used to be positively sure he existed, now I'm not so sure...how do I finally decide? Don't tell me to pray, because if he is there, doesn't the bible say something about he won't listen if you doubt or something? Cause the whole time I'd be praying I'd be like "soo, if you are listening, blah blah blah" Ya know? show more
