    Does it solve a problem? If so I am certain each place would be on the table.

    Destroying the holy sites in Mecca is a bit like unraveling Hope and Change. At first it is hard to believe that anyone could believe the lies. Then comes disillusionment. And finally comes victory.

    Who cares if they are against us? How is that any different than what we see today?

    And that is why you fail. Even though Islam has waged war against us for a very long time we have not waged war back.

    We shall have to agree to disagree. You see petty crime. I see war.

    Would destroying the Vatican "shine the light of truth" on Catholicism? If that happened, would Catholics quit believing in their religion?

    Destroying Mecca would convince a lot of Muslims that the people doing the destruction were pure evil. Moreover, they would be right.

    Perhaps Catholics would see that their god is just as much a fable.

    Nonsense. The rock that fell from the sky is in a very big circle. Think of it as an aim point.

    I think we shall have to agree to disagree. You see petty crime and will not see reality. I see that Islam is waging a war to dominate and subjugate the West. We have no common ground.

    and perhaps they would be saddened and angered that anyone would commit such a barbaric act.

    Rock that fell from the sky? What are you going to do, send an asteroid to strike Mecca to make the Muslims believe that their god is false because he couldn't protect it?

    That makes no sense at all.

    Do you see any difference between destroying a city and destroying a meteorite worshipped by the locals?

    The Kaaba is what I believe bears destruction.
    [indent]After Ibrahim had built the Kaaba, an angel brought to him the Black Stone, a celestial stone that, according to tradition, had fallen from Heaven on the nearby hill Abu Qubays.[30] According to a saying attributed to Muhammad, the Black Stone had "descended from Paradise whiter than milk but the sins of the sons of Adam had made it black".[31] The Black Stone is believed to be the only remnant of the original structure made by Ibrahim.[/quote]

    It sounds like a meteorite to me.

    Yes, it does sound like a meteorite.

    So, what does that have to do with destroying Mecca? Did you think Mecca was a meteorite?
