President Obama has declared climate change as the greatest threat. ISIS has grown in recent years have engaged in a global jihad on innocent people around the globe. Ebola and other bio agents are causing death and outbreaks around the world. Iran is working diligently towards a nuclear weapon that may be used to start World War III. Our sun has periodic out burst of high energy flares that may affect our communication satellites and our energy grid. What do you think is the greatest threat to our earth this year in 2016? You can pick from above or name something else.

Any religion or certain religion? Don't make the mistake that all religion are equal.
All religions. In my experience, the more religious someone professes to be, the more hateful, bigoted, and exclusionary they are. I've come across a very few who are not. Whether you believe in a supreme being or not, all religions are man made.
Bill, your views on religion are more extreme than most. Do you think Hitler or Mao are better than religious zealots? Do you believe in the existence of evil or it is all survival of the fitest?
Studies show that atheists are more tolerant than Christians. http://www.alternet.org/belief/atheists-tend-be-mo...
Whatever study that is is BS to the highest degree.
To begin with that link cannot be considered a real "study" it only addresses atheist's tolerance of Muslims. Not surprised at all atheists would be tolerant of Muslims or any other religion that promotes sinful activity which Islam does.
You guys are funny. From my own experience, religious people are the least tolerant and most judgemental. People who call themselves Christians are the least Christ-like.
Bill, I wish you would lump all Christians in one basket. In any group, you will find some extremists. Most Christians that I know are very tolerant and believes in live and let live philosophy. They do not judge for they would be judged...
"Your belief system is not any better than your neighbor's." LMAO, so go ISIS, our belief systems aren't any better than yours, here's my head on a platter if that pleases you.The only thing nuttier than ISIS is lisa's world view.
Lisa, with due respect, you don't mean there are no right and wrong and no good or evil? No standards of behavior? Your world view will get all of us killed worse than what we have today. Don't forget Hitler, Mao and Stalin has killed more humans...
You're only illustrating my point. You so arrogantly ram your beliefs, and your way of life, down everyone's throat, and, when threatened, use the vilest examples to make your point. You MUST be right. Everyone MUST live your way. Arrogance.
Lisa, you are confusing beliefs with reality. You can choose to believe in the existence of God or not, the fact is the atrocities I referred to happened and it is our history and our reality. What does that have to do with a belief system?
And you're confusing belief system with religion. Hitler was a fascist. Mao and Stalin were communists. These are ideological belief systems that these leaders attempted to inflict on as much of the world as they could conquer. All failed. Arrogance.
So in your mind religios beliefs have nothing to do with reality &therefore everyone's belief is a fantasy and so anyone and everyone should respect every other one's fantasy.But an"ideologicalbeliefsystem" your word,shouldn't be respected.NUTS
As usual, you're hijacking the comments on what I wrote, which you clearly haven't read, and putting your vile spin on it to promote your same old religious agenda. Be gone, before someone drops a house on you, too.
How does one spin insane ranting,how do u spin"we are effectively burning our own home to the ground&roasting marshmallows in the flames."? Our home will be here virtually unchanged long after you've died&gone to wherever u believe,u hope
Just heard from Bernie Sanders that ISIL is down to about 1/3 of the "strength" it had two years ago. They are definitely on the defensive. We are tons bigger and stronger than they are.
Belgium just reported a stolen nuclear guard's badge???
You can't believe everything you hear. Obama told us ISIS was contained, remember? They clearly aren't. I still don't think we should underestimate them.
Belgian prosecutor’s office denies terrorist track in murder of guard at nuclear center https://www.rt.com/news/337276-belgium-nuclear-gua... Please don't reference rumors and spread fear.
Not a rumor. Obama really said that in one of his addresses.
Iran's mullahs are trying to build nukes, and they are calling to wipe Israel off the map AND want Armageddon to bring back the last madhi. That's assuming, though, that the India-Pakistan conflict doesn't go nuclear as it almost did in the 1990s.
What specific threat are you claiming? Hate has been around since the beginning. Why is 2016 any different?
Or they are a professional scientist who has spent their life studying the topic. But hey, why listen to experts. Let ignorance reign.
Personally, I am more afraid of being blown up or suffering mass radiation poisoning than dealing with hotter weather and less land.
Not all experts know what they are talking about. Remember Y2K?
You are 630 TIMES more likely to die from our own police than from a terrorist action. You are FAR MORE likely to die from a car accident than a terrorist. You are afraid of all the wrong things.
The ? asks about the biggest threat to the planet. Car accidents are not a threat to the planet. You don't have to worry about the police if you obey the law.
What can wipe out a third of the world population? That is the one item we fear most. All other threats are minuscule in comparison.
It was warmer in the 1000-1200 AD period than today. When the dinosaurs were around, no ice at the poles - and life was fine.
