    When I proposed that it would be interesting to see what the world would look like if there was no religion I didn't say it is clear that there would be no war. I just said that there would be less fervor towards war. As I said it isn't clear to me exactly why he thinks this war is a good one. You must admit there is more evidence of religious wars throughout the ages by people who believed enough to kill for it, there would have to be a different compelling reason to get an atheist to war. In the case of Hitchens I am not sure what that is but it certainly has nothing to do with his atheism

    Interesting. I'll definitely check that one out.

    One of my favorite films by one of my favorite directors, Werner Herzog: Land of Silence and Darkness (1971). It's not available online, but you can easily find it on a torrent site or rent it. I'm gonna be lazy and provide the wikipedia synopsis:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_of_Silence_and_Darkness

    Herzog presents these individuals in an extraordinarily compelling fashion, and makes no shameful effort to evoke "sympathy" or "pity": their uniqueness, while perhaps not enviable, is certainly admirable.

    I've seen Taxi to the dark side, its a good documentary about how ineffective and stupid these wide sweeps were during the Bush administration.

    Islam: What the West needs to Know.

    This documentary explains though a diverse panel suicide bombers, terrorism and Islam. I would be very interested to know what you think of it Sam, as this is meant to dispel the naive understanding of liberal westerners.

    That's not quite how you critique a documentary. Its best to watch it fully and then have something to say about it.

    Just think Fox News meets Zionism. Haven't you read anything by these people?

    Although I hate to provide advertising to this guy, you can start with Jihad watch, move on to Faith freedom and then go onto apostates from Islam and finish with religion of peace.

    No way. Its much more intelligent that that. Care to watch it and critique it from the basis of its content? Spencer is only one of many people speaking of Islam in this piece. What about the Palestinian? What do you think of what he has to say? Or the other non-white middle eastern people who share their ideas.

    And the rest are all his "friends", they occasionally meet at conferences in the US and have discussions on how to save the world from Muslims. You can investigate what they have written if you're interested, I have no interest in wasting my time with crap like that.

    Sam you are not critiquing the documentary. If you don't deal with the information at hand I will only think you are like the people who try and discredit Chomsky by trying to discredit the man without ever dealing with the ideas and information he puts forth.

    Personally I find it compelling. Especially when they speak in terms of 'tolerance'. I understand you are biased when it comes to all things non muslim so I guess I understand your reaction.

    For all other members out there its worth viewing. Its nothing like Fitna which is a simple propaganda piece that doesn't back up any of their statements.

    Sorry, I have no interest in watching Spencer and company. They give me a headache. And no, I haven't watched the documentary so I am obviously not critiquing it. I don't need to watch a new show of Rush Limbaugh to know how compelling it will be. There are some things its not worth wasting your time on.

    Then why come here and put in your two cents if you have no interest? This is for people who either want to offer a documentary or discuss one they have seen. Go and find something useful to do and stop wasting everyones time with your blather concerning things you don't want to waste time having an intelligent discussion about.

    You continue to speak of Spencer when there are middle eastern and even a palestinian giving their thoughts on the subject. This has nothing to do with Rush Limbaugh you are simply trying to distract from what is an interesting documentary. As usual you go about hacking in a dishonest and destructive manner. Get lost and stop trolling.

    Anyone seen Stevie? I felt really uncomfortable when it was over because I felt bad for the guy and he had been charged with molesting a young girl. But the life he had led as a young child and his mental disability...
    Its like the foster care system creates damaged people and then punishes them for doing what they have learned.

    I responded because you mentioned me by name. I looked it up because you recommended it. Once I saw the usual jingoists I lost interest.

    You seem to be spoiling for a fight, well go on spoiling, because this is the last time I will respond to your posts. I'm putting you on ignore for your own good, hows that?

    I mentioned for you to watch it and address it in the some intelligent manner which you did not do.

    You know I actually watched 'Root of all Evil' before I commented on the documentary and I raised issues that were brought up in the documentary.

    Ignore? Of course you will. You dislike being shown a liar

    If you were honest with your approach towards the documentary, one you have already admitted you did not watch, you would have watched it and shown were the fault or propaganda lies but you didn't or couldn't do that.
