mind explaining what's so stupid about #5? If everything in my power is arguing with people, how does that make the comment stupid?

Do you dispute that?

Imabench, I'm dissapointed. Instead of endorsing Airmax, you should've done what they did in the show "The Newsroom" and supported the New York Jets!!!

Also, number 1 isn't stupid either. You do realize that Black African American =/= Black American right?

The statement goes a lot deeper then just your lack of power to change anything as I pointed out, the reason why this is at number 5 is because 1) Theres no such thing as a 'new' atheist, 2) They arent necessarily 'right' either, 3) Religion can easily be be tolerated by people of different or no religious affiliation and its been like that before, 4) It can even be argued that religion should be tolerated just to keep the peace, and number 5) was your claim that you will do everything in your power to try to stop religion's influence on the world, but your power to do so as Mirza pointed out is close to nothing.

That was number 10 not number 1, and im not saying that they are the same the reason that made the list is because entire groups of black people dont hate other entire group of black people....

Okay. After days of deep self-reflection, I decided I don't want to be on it after all.

But number 2 was seriously not stupid.

It seems episode 5 has invited some controversy in regards to the reasoning behind its selected, delegated choices. O.o

Jews are technically an ethnoreligious collective. Meaning they have qualities of being both an ethnicity and religion.

Im pretty sure that the odds that Obama is the antichrist are close to the same if not slightly more then the odds of idea that he is an ancient Pharoah is true if thats what you want to dispute

The statement goes a lot deeper then just your lack of power to change anything as I pointed out, the reason why this is at number 5 is because 1) Theres no such thing as a 'new' atheist

lmao. http://en.wikipedia.org... ..... You used to be cooler than this. I don't know where you went wrong

2) They arent necessarily 'right' either

The quote was preceded by a lengthy preamble to that conclusion...one which explained why they were right. So you pretty much took the quote away from its warrant, and now you're complaining it has no warrant....lol

3) Religion can easily be be tolerated by people of different or no religious affiliation and its been like that before

lol Um,...no,no, see that wasn't the argument. The argument was should it be tolerated, not can it be tolerated. So is your new method of argumentation to call everything you disagree with stupid?

4) It can even be argued that religion should be tolerated just to keep the peace, and number

So one counter argument that modestly supports the opposing view, makes the whole claim stupid?...in what logical world?

5) was your claim that you will do everything in your power to try to stop religion's influence on the world, but your power to do so as Mirza pointed out is close to nothing.

Nothing right now, you don't know my future. You don't know if I could make something out of myself toward that end. Never take advice from Mirza,...he's extremely antagonistic and lacks any practical sense.

False.

and Christians + Muslims + Buudists + Hindu's also arent races..... If I converted to any of these religions, then my race doesnt change.

You clearly don't understand what he saying. He wasn't saying that every follower of Judaism is a member of the Jewish race, or that every member of the Jewish race necessarily adhered to Judaism.

Do you think that the odds of Obama being the anti-Christ are so much greater than the odds of him being Akhenaten that that is actually worthy of being considered a stupid comment?

That's exactly what Daniel was saying. When one says "Jews" they could be referring to EITHER the Jewish ethnicity OR the Jewish religion. Jewry is the nation/ethnicity while Judaism is the religion. There are Jewish atheists (ethnically Jewish + religiously atheist) and there are white Jews (ethnically white + religiously Jewish).

No, I think they both have about the same odds of being true (Zero) and that for Geo to claim one is far more likely then the other and make a thread about it is what got him up to number 1 since 6 different people mailed it to me

That was number 10 not number 1, and im not saying that they are the same the reason that made the list is because entire groups of black people dont hate other entire group of black people....

Dude....the quote said "there are plenty". So yeah, you just put a quote on weekly stupid that was 100% not stupid...that makes you look stupid.

Ike seeing as how youre the biggest political hack on the site im not sure your in a position to define what is or isnt stupid, and if you have a problem with it then use some of your 'power' to start your own show

Im pretty sure that the odds that Obama is the antichrist are close to the same if not slightly more then the odds of idea that he is an ancient Pharoah is true if thats what you want to dispute

Do you think that the odds of Obama being the anti-Christ are so much greater than the odds of him being Akhenaten that that is actually worthy of being considered a stupid comment?

No, I think they both have about the same odds of being true (Zero)

Fair enough.

and that for Geo to claim one is far more likely then the other and make a thread about it is what got him up to number 1 since 6 different people mailed it to me

So? Have you refuted the evidence he provided, or are you just going to chuck it out because you deem it improbable?

Also, number 2 isn't stupid at all.

You see this is why I dont put you on the show. Ever.

Okay. After days of deep self-reflection, I decided I don't want to be on it after all.

But number 2 was seriously not stupid.

AMTY, Jews arent a race, there is no such thing as 'Jewry', and Christians + Muslims + Buudists + Hindu's also arent races..... If I converted to any of these religions, then my race doesnt change.

Jews are technically an ethnoreligious collective. Meaning they have qualities of being both an ethnicity and religion.

Nur, if I converted to Judaism, my genetic makeup and heritage doesnt automatically change and I dont get classified under 'Jewry' just because I converted. Religion and genetics are two very different things

That's exactly what Daniel was saying. When one says "Jews" they could be referring to EITHER the Jewish ethnicity OR the Jewish religion. Jewry is the nation/ethnicity while Judaism is the religion. There are Jewish atheists (ethnically Jewish + religiously atheist) and there are white Jews (ethnically white + religiously Jewish).

I like your show though.

Do you think that christian atheists also exist since you said that Jewish atheists do?
