I am watching the live speech by President Bush right now.

I noticed it opened with prayer where the soldier prayed for God to direct our leaders in this war and to protect our troops.
I KNOW the Iraqi soldiers pray to Allah for Victory.

Is God taking sides?

Is that really a question, or are you just pointing out how everyone believes God is behind them?

Of course God's not taking sides. He hasn't taken sides for two thousand years. These days, he just watches us in amusement while we kill each other. It's like a big Jerry Bruckheimer movie to him.

Ask an nontheist a stupid question, you'll get a stupid answer. ;-)

More preciesly are you trying to get people to say that god is taking sides and then call them hypocrites for assuming they know what God wants?

In any case I say he is on our side :p

He must be, we are winning, and America must be right about most things besides this war, otherwise we wouldn't be as prosperous and strong, obviously our endowment from God for being morally superior......

Do I ask a "motive" for every post you make?

I am asking for a "discussion". What you believe.

heh heh you guys make me laugh.

hitler? strong and prosperous for about five years? must have been his endowment from god for being morally superior.
saddam? strong and properous for about twenty years, must be morally superior too, until lately, he must have gotten god mad so he's going down.

Yea were winning all right. This war will have more terrorists at our throats then ever before. So say.. when your little daughter gets her arm blown off from some nut job terrorist (due to the fact that his family was killed in the Iraq war and now he is seeking revenge) look towards to heavens and say "THANK GOD!"

Actually this disguists me. God doesn't exist. And if there is a GOD, Bush is going straight to hell.

Iraq was never as prosperous as America, nor as strong, at least Hitler built a stable economy from ruins without VAST oil reserves, Saddam has done NOTHING for his people. Look you can disagree with my observations, but you can't argue with God, why else are we the sole superpower? Why does the worlds economy revolve around american markets? Why do foreigners keep using our internet?

your anti-bush feelings are obvious.

Yeah this war is going to bring MASSIVE terrorist attacks, notice how many have happened since it started alone. Are you even watching TV? Which one of the cheering, dancing, high fiving, citizens of Najaf or Kalbara is going to be the guy that blows my daughters arm off? LOL

Yea.. and everything has a beginning and a ending. Who says that were going to be the worlds sole superpower forever? Times change and countries rise and fall. America is in for a bit of a reality check.

Also.. god doesn't exist and someone should sue Bush because he just trampled on my rights as an Atheists. Hell.. if one Atheists can get the word god taken out of the Pledge of Allegiance, then I have a chance!

i cant tell if you're joking here. so you're saying that hitler was blessed by god?
you're saying god only blesses countries and not individual people? im not saying iraq has been prosperous, iim saying saddam has been properous and strong for these last twenty years. according to your reasoning, saddam must have protected by god to have lasted this long with all his riches and palaces and surviving assassination attempts.

can you go down the list of highest GDP countries and say that God has blessed the top countries the most?

It has to be lonely "thinking" that GOD doesn't exist. Wow, this is your life live it up ...this is all you have ...this is your heaven!
Well it sure beats spending eternity with Bin Laden, Falwell and Robertson.

Hmm.. I guess I should belive in a religion that has enslaved and murdered Native Americans becuse the church thought that they were doing gods work. God must be a wonderful person to let all this happen, huh? The white man said "SAVE THE SAVAGES, WERE DOING GOD'S WORK." -bullsh*t

I can show you the destruction and loss of life due to peoples belief in God.

<smelling a lock coming soon>

But...

I was raised Catholic but now feel there is no such thing as God. That 'God' is simply something created by people who lived several thousand years ago and were ignorant of science and how the world came into existence and how things worked and created a supernatural being as the answer to all.

And, yes, I am 'living it up'. I feel if I respect the land, respect the law, and respect my fellow man that I am living the way I should be. And if I have a little fun in the process...so be it.

I can't explain God's reasoning, maybe Hitler was given his time to get back at certain people for killing someones son......;)

Either way its indisputable, God is on our side, otherwise we wouldn't be where we are, the longets lasting democracy in the world, the most prosperous nation, the strongest force ever assembled. We are His chosen ones because we are better than everyone else....

I hope you can tell the joking by now....

Man.. you sure know how to push my buttons. I was enraged! Well anyway.. I'm not really an atheist, but I feel that God should be left out of the picture when Bush is addressing the nation.
