Which probably has a lot to do with why America is one of the last modern countries with a population over 50% who believe in a god. A lot of the rest of the "modern" world is down in the 20%, 30% or maybe 40% range, where as America is a ridiculous 85%+. I like to think a lot of that are just people who don't really care and just label themselves Christian because that is what they were raised as.

PS, Matt Dillahunty is a really brilliant, well spoken guy. Very sharp intellect, and very informed on many things.
You say that like only people of faith are uninformed. You can have people call in on ANY topic, and you will get the same results, most people that call in will be full retard. There are just as many stupid atheists as there are stupid religious people.

About your thing with America being the only modern country with high religious concentration my searching showed the UK between 50-80%, US at 80% and Canada around 80% of the people considered themselves affiliated to some religious system.

You are absolutely right, every topic will have people who are uninformed... but most topics aren't as polarizing and important in changing a persons world view as religion. So you would think people would want to know what the hell they are talking about in a subject so important. If not, don't call in to a radio/web show and make an *** out of yourself.

I said "one of the last" countries with that high of a percentage. The UK in my research is closer to 50%, certainly not as high as 80%. Canada, I don't know. Aren't they just an American colony, anyway...?

Religion can't be discussed seriously in this country. It's wrong to question or discuss it... baby Jesus would cry.

I laugh every time you guys point out that the religion thread got closed.

"Damn! Our religion thread got closed. Wonder why? Oh well, I'll just take that content to the Random Pic thread, I'm sure that'll go over well."

Obviously, Brainy's side is right, and the other side is wrong.

Joe, on this site, if you just post:

the video will display like this:



So if you click share, and then select "long link" or copy the address, you're in business.

i mean, it's pretty obvious my side is right, but the discussion is pointless.

Yeah, but I don't like the way those come out. The window is too small and it doesn't seem like as seamless of an embed.

Real Men use [YT] [/YT].

Sorry, I left off an important step. Take "http://youtu.be/Lspi5sWaZFc" and remove the "http://youtu.be/" and enclose what remains with the yt brackets.

How this whole YT video embedding was ever hard in the first place always has me stumped. I mean holy ----, if you cant do that.....what can you do? Its been posted time and time again, its not that hard to understand nor to do. So why is this a problem??

P.S. I have NO IDEA who was even having an issue. Didn't care enough to look into it. I just had to ask in general, WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND???
