There were never 20 million Aborigines in Australia.
Some of your other numbers are absurd exaggerations as well.

And it would also be helpful if your brain could come up with its own original point of view rather than your post being a 100 percent copy-and-paste of stuff you found elsewhere on the internet.

Well, I completely agree, although I would say that colonialism existed long before Christianity.

Correct me if I am wrong (history is not my strong point) but weren't most of the seafaring western nations (France, UK, Holland, Spain, Portugal, et al) all going out and claiming lands from afar in the name of The King, and therefore by extension the Vatican? (Most monarchies were always begging the Pope for favours, forgiveness or permission at some point or other, mutual back-scratching and redistribution of treasures gained...)

Plant a flag, say some words, kill a few natives and force your language on them, kinda thing?

Absolutely true.
Which is why the issue should stand on its own merits, and not fictitious merits.

It should also be worth noting that the fim you refer to was roundly canned in Australia when it came out because although it claims to be a true story, it is mostly twisted fiction.

This doesnt change the events that happened to real people, which is why I go back to my original point that one shouldnt LIE in order to draw attention to wrongdoings.

Edit - I was actually thinking of Rabbit Proof Fence there, but much the same argument goes for Australia.

Blaming the West for all the problems in the Middle East is like blaming terrorism on Islam as well.

See ya,

Oh, I can't help myself here. With a thread like this.....

Answer: No to all of the above. They have been to busy off'ing themselves and driving their technology a century behind everyone elses because of the witches! I think it was because Islam has been too tolerant of other religions previously. Don't worry, everyone knows that they are trying to one day catch up to these atrocities. Maybe this century. _javascript:icon('

But Turkey got a million or so Armenians last century.

What does any of that regurgitated nonsense have to do with my post? It sure as hell wasn't a contradiction! If anything at all, that crap was more of an affirmation!

Get your numbers correct, and state some facts, then we'll discuss atrocities.

See ya,

The argument of the OP is flawed... and flawed for a single, simple reason.
Terrorism, as broadly defined, is not only encouraged, but mandated in the Qu'ran.
Colonialism, in any definition, is neither encouraged, nor mandated, nor even remotely discussed in the Bible... and therein lies the difference. To even begin to address the two religions, you must take them at their word, and extrapolate from there.

Islam is a political/religious system. It does not distinguish between 'church' and state, primarily because the two are seen to be facets of a single establishment that is put in place by Allah.

Christianity, on the other hand, is apolitical.
Attempts have been made by its adherents to make a political/religious system out of Christianity (Calvin's Geneva is a standout example); these attempts have always ended the same way: badly... and that, for one simple reason: Jesus Christ Himself said "my Kingdom is not of this world", and he meant it. Attempts to establish "God's Kingdom here on earth" are not only misguided, they are in fact blatantly opposed to Scripture.

so no... blaming Islam for terrorism is nothing like blaming Christianity for colonialism.

Oooh images strewn throughout the post, it must be logic and fact and none of that fancy attention seeking stuff, eh!

Hmm, 20 of millions. How many is that? Certainly more than the estimated 318,000 and 1,000,000 at the time.

Did the british have a time machine, kill every single Aborigine and then go back in time to do it another 20-40 times?

Must be.. But hey your post is full of images and fancy statements, only a fool would disagree with you.

This kiddies, is what you look like when you don't think for yourself and regurgitate ignorance in public *points at op*

It proves that facts are useless when used by simple people.

Christianity does happen to have the lion's share of blame on colonialism while Islam does not have a monopoly on terrorism. Extremely poor reasoning detracting from a valuable message.

Terrorism, as broadly defined, is not only encouraged, but mandated in the US Constitution

Terrorism, as broadly defined, is not only encouraged, but mandated in the McDonalds MOI
Terrorism, as broadly defined, is not only encouraged, but mandated in the Pythagoras Theorem
Terrorism, as broadly defined, is not only encouraged, but mandated in the 3 Laws of Robotics

I broadly define Terrorism as a tasty snack. How do you define it?

These types of articles/posts are borderline trolling. It's sad: immigrants get schooled in eurocentric lierature, then want to continue that focus on everything negative that huge group of people did over a long period of time.
The chinese have a long history of war and slavery but this is just an example of one huge hemisphere that goes ignored in the eurocentric propaganda machine. What about africa?
You will find a common arguement among marxists and conservative muslims alike: that white people need to go home. But for some reason they're allowed to be in europe or north america.
They say north america is native land and compare it to israel,.

And should be banned...

And thats my firm belief also.
