    I did, and what you said doesn't negate my point. There are new terrorists born every day. There is no way in hell we would ever be able to rid the world of them entirely.

    How many terrorist are born every day compared to those who would fight against them to remain free?

    What are you suggesting with your claim that there are new terrorist born every day and that we cannot rid the world of them entirely? Is it just an observation?

    The fact is that throughout the history of mankind there has always been one group seeking dominance over the other. The Nazis tried it, the Communists, the Fascists and now the Islamists. If the Islamists are defeated there will be someone to take their place.

    no one is born a terrorist.

    people can only be motivated into committing acts of terror.

    have you ever tried catching smoke with a net? terrorism is not something you can pin down.

    it operates regardless of borders, regardless of nationality, and regardless of culture.

    But, right now, not regardless of religion.

    Islam is the worlds second largest religion after Christianity. are you implying that every practitioner of Islam is a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer?

    No, actually, that's not really the case. We know from prison intake statistics that more criminals claim to be religious than their percentage in the outside world, that means the religious commit crimes at a rate greater than their statistical presence in non-criminal society. Atheists, on the other hand, are much less represented among the prison population than their outside numbers. Keep in mind that these are entry statistics, these are the beliefs claimed by convicted criminals before they've even stepped foot in prison.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
