Ahh, I was just thinking of the firebombing and nuking of Japan. The 300. Drone strikes. Rourkes drift. Camarón.

I guess limited examples...

Isn't the history of conflict one that doesn't reward numbers in most cases, it rewards superior intellect (better weapons) and efficiency.

Religion hasn't worked then, has it.

CWB - I am constantly surprised at you seemingly effortless ability to take the bible and convince yourself that one bit is true, another is allegorical, and yet another just doesn't apply today. You quote the bible, yet are now dismissing the premise of life after death. You contradict your self from one sentence to another: Example - you disagree with me saying that more and more people in the west are turning their back on religion, yet you follow it with a quote that says "The 2011 data also revealed a population of England and Wales that is generally better educated but less religious than it was a decade ago ". I would ask how your mind copes with holding such contradictory thoughts, but your reliance on conspiracy theories evidences that it simply doesn't.

For some bizarre reason no punishment "as an example to others" has ever stopped any perpetrator. In the old times (was it in Phoenicia?) anyone who managed to get onto a trader ship without paying/permission risked the penalty of death. Still ticketless travellers survived right until now.

Scare tactics of "example" has hardly ever worked

C. W. Bradbury says: "3. Those breaking these rules will be whipped, branded, blinded, castrated, hanged, beheaded or otherwise ill-treated, as an example to others, tempted to put self before community."

Except, of course, if those breaking the rules are the ones that do the punishing (which most of the time was exactly the case).

Heretic

One difference is the payout. Insurance companies may twist and turn to try and avoid it, but at the end they pay up. Religion on the other hand tells you about the mystical heavenly payout, but strangely enough, no one has ever been seen to get that benefit.

Dont worry CWB - you are in a steadily shrinking group. More and more people in the west are turning there backs on religion. Roll on the day that religion is banned in public and just left to those devout few who want to practice it in the privacy of their own homes. One day in the far future, even thrid world countries will achieve the level of education to work out for themselves how idiotic belief in a big hairy sky fairy really is.

Didn't see that in my insurance contract small print.

Ah yes, the church has always been there....ready with a noose, a ducking stool, or a condemnation, ready to interfere in the everyday lives of the poor peasant. When you say 'many died', you're joking, right?

That anyone would consider point 1 as a good thing just goes to highlight what is wrong with this world.

The response to point 2 is just mind boggling. Kill off all the opposition - then what? Tell your population of like minded xenophobes that they must now stop having 11 children each? As anyone with a modicum of biological understanding will tell you, homogeneous populations have a tendency to collapse when they reach a certain size, even when there are sufficient resources to feed them.

Two things stand out from this post Bradders:

1. Religion is the motivation/excuse for conquest, anhilation of less advanced natives, and deaths of anyone unlucky enough to be caught up in it. Grab the land and the money, anyone resisting can be labelled unbelieving heathens and murdered without remorse.

2. You have no understanding of what damage unchecked population growth does to this planet.

CWB, although you have not answered my question, your response would seem to indicate either that you have a well stocked bunker, or that you would like to have one. This portrays a deep seated paranoia, and explains the highly unstable psyche indicated by belief in all the conspiracy and ancient alien websites that feature so frequently.

Of course if we are going by reproduction rate / numbers then we should all bow down before our termite overlords :)

"Any society with a birth rate like that will come to dominate those around them who are less successful."

Unless, of course, they are themselves less successful than those around them. Had you thought of that one?

CWB - as a matter of interest, are you making preparations for possible nuclear bomardment, or other apocolyptic occurrences. The way you talk about you family and group survival, sounds like you might be the kind of person who would have a well stocked bunker in the woods somewhere.

This

"They are deliberate blasphemers, destructively introducing their blasphemies into the Christian Church, intent on destroying that once noble institution."

was the highlight for me. I see Bradders is still indulging his fixation with sodomy.
