    Nope, my best friend is a sox fan, so I see it often enough.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Modern warfare killed more people because of technology. The engine brought more people to the war and the bullet killed at a greater distance. If those wars had been fought with swords and bows they would have produced far less death. Korea and Vietnam were fought because our xians had too keep communism from spreading godlessness. Remember? That's why we had to put "in god we trust" on our money and and "one nation under god" in our pledge. The problems with the Monarchy (and it's religious control of government) was one of a couple reasons for the American revolution. Similarly with the French revolution.
    The Civil war was over slavery and the southern xians used the bible to justify slavery.
    WWI, here's a xian fundy talking


    Here is the original question I responded to...

    "More people have died in the name of religion(s) than anything else so spare me this crap about how more religion is better for society" - Kali

    Now please explain how any of the response you posted has anything even remotely to do with my response to him?

    Your information is also factually wrong.

    Fail

    You may also want to respond to this...

    It is believed that key concepts of Zoroastrian eschatology and demonology have had influence on the Abrahamic religions. On the other hand, Zoroastrianism itself inherited ideas from other belief systems and, like other practiced religions, accommodates some degree of syncretism.

    So I guess they all were influenced by someone at some point.
    I guess this means we are both correct to some extent?

    People dying per-se is not automatically bad. It all depends on what they were fighting for and why they died.
    I am shocked that you would defend the killing of millions of peoples. How sad

    No. On that particular piece you were correct and I was wrong. I was just pointing out even they got things from others as well.

    He was not defending the killing of people. He was saying that dying for a cause etc. is not always considered a bad thing.

    My post was not a question but rather a statement of fact.
