    I 100% agree with you. Extremists went for the capital (sorry, I'm in a political debate right now and it isn't easy to just stop talking about it), WW2 was against extremists, the Cold War was about showing extremists that we were better, etc.

    Yeah those all violent events and war were directly or indirectly caused by extreme views. 

    I get annoyed by religious extremists most.

    However, do you think that extremist also have their own reasons for their extreme views which can be justified?

    I think they find solace in their beliefs by knowing people are with them and agree with whatever they say, *cough cough* Westboro Baptist Church *cough cough*.
  • ThorThor 255 Pts   -  
    @Luigi7255

    Yes they do find solace in their views, which makes them incapable of seeing the same thing by different perspective, and in religion too extreme views would be harmful to oneself and others and it would leave no chance of comparative religion studies.

    And also, if they are too far into the religious hole, they attempt to invade others' right to religion and attempt to convert them through many different methods, like cyberbullying.

    Well, I am also a theist Hindu. It’s necessary to have knowledge of what your religion says and I had been to Church, Mosques but like I would oppose the extreme views which would say my religion is best and yours is worse.

    Btw, as you can probably tell, I'm an Atheist, and I agree, there are extreme Atheists, I think we know who I'm talking about here. I still want knowledge of other religions, in fact, I've been interested in Judaism for the past few days. Also, I respect that you're a Hindu.

    @Luigi7255

    Yes extreme atheists view are same as religious extremism. Yeah it’s advantageous to gain knowledge. Yes comparative religious studies is considered to very useful who wants to know about faiths and want to implement in their life, in which they are compared with one another. It also includes how eastern and western views vary. Oh great. I too respect you are atheist. 

    Well, what’s ur opinion on Israel-Gaza then?

    Okay, how does Hinduism operate in terms of gods/goddesses, followers, etc?
  • ThorThor 255 Pts   -  
    @Luigi7255

    It does not operate, it is neither an organised religion.

    Hinduism is not a religion it is a way of life but several invasions in India changed it meaning to consider it as a religion.

    We have many gods. But our three main god is Brahma(creator), Vishnu(preserver) and Shiva(Destroyer). And also some believe in Shakti. Our vedas is based on Henotheistic approach. 

    I believe in Shiva. Our main source of knowledge is Vedas. But to simplify it God Vishnu In the form of Krishna gave knowledge through Bhagwad Gita.

    @Thor

    So to summarize to me who doesn't really know it, The Preserver wrote a scripture in another form to give knowledge to followers. Is that right?
  • ThorThor 255 Pts   -  
    @Luigi7255

    No, preserver didn’t wrote it. He took incarnation on Earth in the form of Shree Krishna to protect Truth. 

    So in the war of Truth which is known as Mahabharata, he spoked it vocally to Arjun(his friend) and it was then written.

    So it is considered as simplest form of Vedas.

    Argument Topic: I agree and Disagree, here's why:

    @Thor
    You are right about mass destruction, and increasing the chance of violence. You are also right about these views being harmful and are a threat to peace and humanity. With this I agree with you. What we have to also realize is that sometimes we need times where peace is threatened to progress. The founders of America had to threaten the peace of Great Britain - where a lot of violence and destruction was caused, so that independence would  be gained. Women threatened peace, and went against the status quo when standing up for equality. Black South Africans ended up resorting to extreme measures (views and violence included) when their peaceful protests were not being listened to by a racially oppressive government. So yes, extreme views are not ideal, but they definitely do help a society and it's people find a middle ground that is accepted by most.

    What I don't agree with is the assumption that these views should be wiped out from the face of the earth and all will be well with humanity. As much as I do not agree with the harm and destruction caused by extreme views, people hold them because of some kind of perceived or real oppression that is happening to them, and they are not being heard by the rest of society - there are many other reasons, but this one seems to be the common  factor. What do I mean?
    When people's well being is threatened in some way, and they feel nobody is listening or trying to help for a prolonged period of time, then they resort to what the rest of society perceive as extreme views.

    @Thor
    Swolliw is actually over obsessed with his views. 

    For example???? I'll answer that for you to save the agony of actually researching every post I have made. No, Swolliw is not over-obsessed with his views and there is not one shred of evidence to indicate otherwise.


  • SwolliwSwolliw 1037 Pts   -  
    @Luigi7255
    Swolliw goes overboard,
    There is not one example that you can quote that "Swolliw goes overboard"

     Atheists can be indifferent on religious issues, and this.

    For example?

    I don't think you have a clue as to what you are talking about.
