Do the vociferous and hot under the collar Christian baiters here treat the other religions too with same contempt? Just wondering.....
Definately. With the exception of those so-called religions that just help to show a 'way' of better living. Any bunch of loonies who think the earth is flat and subscribe to a stone age dogma that is about exterminating its religious rivals and consigning the rest of us to some imaginary hell deserves only contempt.
A very superficial assessment. What about Hinduism which is so knowledgeable that they knew about atoms and molecules, how to make airplanes, and yes, always said the Earth was a sphere? Just one example
These same claims are made by religionists for both the bible and quoran too.
I wasn't aware that Hinduism works at exterminating its rivals? And claiming that a society's achievements are the work of its religion is breathtaking in its pointlessness.
Not society. read Hindu scriptures.
It is all there
@china man you are right..hinduism never works at exterminating its rivals and come to what thirdmillenium says it is not religion about what he is talking about..yes India has had long history in which many scientific development took place or theories were formed..but it is work of humans..India is one of oldest civilizations in the world..and so is china ..so obviously it would have some or other developments occuring as far as science goes..ayurveda , yoga are examples...aryabhatt calculated distance between moon and earth..now he was not prophet but scientist..
Have a look at partition of India, 1948, I think you will find that the Hindu's have a capacity for killing, come to that India today could wipe out any Muslim state if it desired to do so.
Fortunately India is mainly peaceable.
"After the war, the last British viceroy, Lord Mountbatten, managed to negotiate a deal whereby northwestern and the far eastern sections of India became a Muslim state – Pakistan – and the remaining territory a Hindu one. Independence day for Pakistan came on August 14, 1947, and for India August 15, the day after.
This decisive action to end the controversy threw the area into turmoil. Millions of Muslims and Hindus living on the wrong side of the newly drawn border fled their homes. Violence caused by extreme nationalists from both side was fierce and took thousands of lives. One of the victims was Mohandas Gandhi, assassinated on January 30, 1948, by a Hindu militant who opposed Gandhi’s campaign for peace and reconciliation."

Like thirdmillenium you can't claim that the actions of a whole people are down to their religion - in this instance two distinct competitive cultures were forcibly divided. each culture had its won religion - this does not mean that it was a religious war in the same sense as the current christian pressure for a war on Islam.
" this does not mean that it was a religious war in the same sense as the current christian pressure for a war on Islam."
Actually I believe we (as non Islamic infidels)already are at war with Islam, it's just that nobody in power wants to call it a war against a religion.
Calls for a war against Islam are NOT made by Christians... nowhere in the NT will you find any suggestion that Christ commands us to kill anybody.
Anybody saying they are killing for Christ is a liar.
Current world 'Christian' leaders are not Christians in reality, as they do condone war against Islam, even if they dress it up as a war against terror, when in truth it's a war for oil and resources.
yes Hindus have capacity to kill ..that is human capacity coming from where we actually belonged to and that is jungle..but Hinduism is much more less likely to kill than abrahamic religion and there are number of reasons for that...no1 is hindusim doesnot belief in my god is only god theme...secondly there is no one book which can motivate anyone to terminate other religions...
I take bating very seriously..
...took me years to master it.
I heard you are afraid of worms ? so what about this baiting ?
I was waiting for this word play! I should have figured it would come from you, Ron. lol
You could master it the first time without bating an eyelid
Christian baiters? I am not a baiter.
Religious baiters? I am not a baiter.
I properly wait patiently for a Christian or Religious individual to open said mouth.
Then, I only help guide them to stick their own foot into their own mouth. If it fits up to the knee, then even better.
I will not bait one. I have no need or requirement to bait such a person. They'll do the baiting all on their own, then accuse those who response in disagreement as wrong, liars, misunderstood, foolish, deviant, dumb, stupid, and because their imaginary god told them to say it- "you'll burn in hell for not believing".
I don't need to do anything, they'll begin the entire process with no help from me.
The Ashoka Chakra means the 'wheel of the law'. It is derived from the Sanskrit word Dharma Chakra, which means wheel. It has 24 spokes.
The most prominent Indian Mauryan emperor, called Ashoka the Great, built the Ashoka Chakra during the 3rd century BC. The Ashoka Chakra is inscribed widely among the Lion Capital of Sarnath and the Ashoka Pillar. The Ashoka Chakra is placed in the center of the National Flag of the Republic of India. It was adopted on 22 July, 1947. It is rendered in a navy blue colour on a white background. In order to add historical 'depth' and separate the National Flag from that of the Indian National Congress (INC) Gandhian spinning wheel is replaced with the Spokes of Ashoka Chakra in the center of the Flag.
Ashoka Chakra can also be seen on the base of Lion Capital of Ashoka which has been adopted as the National Emblem of India. The Chakra signifies that there is a life in 'Movement' and 'Death' in stagnation. The process of the wheel stands for cycle or the self repeating process with the changing of time in our life. The Horse on the Right hand symbolizing accuracy and speed. The Bull on the Left hand stands for hard work.
Wonderful Qualities of Twenty Four Spokes:
23.The fear of God
24.Faith or Believe or Hope
Ashoka Chakra represent the 24 Hours of the nation. Thus it governs all.
More like God baiters, the cabal that operates in the forums will always rise to any mention of God and seek to divert the topic, or if that's not working, engage in mindless drivel about anything to stop discussion.
Still, it keeps believers on their toes, and keeps the trolls occupied.
Ashoka Chakra, in my opinion, is in memory of the brutal force used by Ashoka then a Hindu, to annex Kalinga into his dynasty.
Ashoka had seen the bloodshed with his own eyes. He felt that he was the cause of the destruction. The whole of Kalinga was plundered and destroyed. Ashoka's later edicts state that about 100,000 people were killed on the Kalinga side and 100,000 from Ashoka's army. Thousands of men and women were deported.
The Kalinga War (Sanskrit: कलिन्ग युध्धम्) was a war fought between the Mauryan Empire under Ashoka the Great and the state of Kalinga, a feudal republic located on the coast of the present-day Indian state of Orissa. The Kalinga war is one of the major battles in the History of India. Kalinga put up a stiff resistance, but they were no match for Ashoka's brutal strength. The bloodshed of this war is said to have prompted Ashoka to adopt Buddhism.
well ashoka was not expanding because he was hindu..he was expanding because he was king like islamic regimes didnt expand because they were muslims but expanded because they got power hungry..did ashoka convert anyone in the process?...answer is NO..so ashoka's expansion was never to do with religion...talking about brutality subcontinent has had many brutal forces before ashoka and after ashoka too...if we want to see religion we have to see whether it preaches my god only god and hell or death to non believers and reward to those who die or kill others for religion?...if yes that religion would have more motivation to kill than others...ashoka's buddism quest was truely peacful...
