radicals..but your radicals have a way of ruling nations...sort it out guys!
Meh. Its not that I disagree that Islam does it, but it certainly is not limited to Islam. The Christians did their very best to destroy all sorts
of knowledge. And in many cases they succeeded. We will never know how much was lost in the burning of the Library at Alexandria.
Difference being, Alexandra/dark ages happened a very, very long time ago
they are destroying crap today in islam...stuck in the dark ages.
Christianity, for all their faults (and there is a list a freaking mile long) at least has gotten past the supression of knowledge...and now simply
tries to twist all knowledge and logic...
Not to mention all the scientists and philosophers after that whose work and even whose bodies were burned.
Again, dark ages verses now.
I make no apologys for christianitys epic fails, however, it seems they have learned from their mistakes (if you want to call em mistakes). I am
worried about what is happening right now, and tomorrow...for now, islam is the unruly mob
And now we have people doing the same basic thing for secular reasons with censorship, and control of information.
I disagree..most reasons are hardly secular. Censorship is the new blowing up of information for sure, and it always leads back to morality being
Actually, in considering it, Christians stopped destroying artifacts, but they have now taken on a new way of information destruction with censorship
and morality causes that eliminate information...so, they are not out of the boiling pot yet.
bah...there should be a worldwide ban on religion (one can dream)
As far as corporate censorship, well thats the religion of profit. That is perhaps the strongest power of knowledge destruction on earth
today...corporate entities manipulating facts, corrupting science, and brainwashing the people...the worst part being they do it so subtly that half
the people think the move is to ensure the freedom of information or that the other side of the coin is the lie.
its a insane world...at least when something explodes in fire, we still have enough brain capacity to know thats not good.
