At the risk of going off on a tangent here...I was skimming one of the other threads that went completely off topic (as usual). I noticed some of the xtian nodders blaming the Columbine shootings on either a) the teaching of TOE in public schools or b) not teaching xtianity.
This is ridiculous, and you know it: God caused Columbine.
Xtians, if you wish to assert that GOD KNOWS ALL, and GOD IS EVERYWHERE, and GOD CREATED US, then GOD ALONE CAUSED COLUMBINE. If you want to assert that your god decided to allow Columbine occur as a punishment, or a warning, fine. The end result is the same, 'god' caused this tragedy to happen.
To head off the response I know is coming: I don't personally believe god caused Columbine...but then again, I'm not caught in the usual asinine moral contradictions of a True Believer. Actually, you might be almost right, but not as you think: if the Columbine gunmen were god-fearin', Jesus lovin' religobots, they might not have acted on their murderous rage in this fashion. Unfortunately, that's not a testament to god's existence, rather it's an example of the benefits of religious mind-control.
