    Ok, i guess everyone read my comment and alot of u guys agreed with it. The thing is that i did not make it up so i will not take any credit, the real man is Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. (AKA Mahtma Gandhi, AKA the Great Soul) Iam Indian myslef and when we had to do an assignment on someone who had an impact on the world, i chose Gandhi. His story is the most inspirational, im telling u, if u ever have free time read his life. If you read about him u will come across many interesting sayings and very valid information on different religions. I will write more about him, i might even make a thread on him because his story is one that in my opinion, needs to be heard.

    i just as it happens to be written an essay on this very subject but to think that this will come up on a gaming forum especially a wii fourum were it is based around a game console aimed to bring people together so i think this is a subject that should be left alone that are darkprinnys view you may not like them i odnt like them but you are as bad as him if you go against him because of his beliefs so i think this isnt a topic that should be brought up in this forum yes you hva eht eright to free speech but also you need to draw the line there is no place for the conversation on this forum if you want to start up a religon forum go for it but there isnt a place for this in the forum even in the lounge so just drop and yes i know it seems im going on about not gping and im being hipercritical but i just want to finish this once and for all

    See I made it my own! RELIGION *whoosh* wow a 50 page thread bout how there beliefs are right and you are all wrong wow. Oh do want to be different rep! even if I don't help it seems to happen a lot here

    Fine i wont start a thread about gandhi, but i never said dark prinny's beleifs are wrong, i just like u do not like them but i never wrote that. But i still stand by the fact that everyone should read gandhis story, not everything had to do with religion. He started satyagraha, figthing with no violence. He would get thousands of people to go up to the government and they would smash them up, but no one retaliated at all, they just stood their and took the beating... Yes, im basically telling his story now so sorry, i wont mention gandhi again. Once again i will say that i was never taking sides against or with darkprinny ok? Just wanted to make that clear, i just have different views and just because people have differnt views, it doesnt mean that they do not have to get along. End - story

    If you look throughout history you'll see the greatest mass-murderers and tyrants, such as Osama bin Laden, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, were people who could not tolerate other cultures and religions. I just hope society can learn to accept different people and not make the same mistakes again.
    thanks for bringing this up, this is exactly my point and thanks to everyone else as well

    Fundamentally all religions are the same. Its the interpretations that confuse people and cause them to alienate themselves from other 'religious' people of different perspective.

    Darkprinny - I've known alot of muslim people at my uni and they're all nice people. The ones you are concerned about are the extremist muslims not muslims in general.
    yes this is also what im trying to get at thanks for helping me prove my point

    Exactly, this is what I tried to explain to Prinny. I, myself, am not Muslim but I know what it takes to respect a religion, even if it's not your own.

    There are fanatics in EVERY group of people. EVERY SINGLE ONE. You will always find those few people who ruin it for everyone else, it's inevitable. It's up to us to make the decision of building up hatred for the entire organization or just the ones who messed it up.

    I gave the example of race. Let's say a white man commits a crime against someone else, does that mean all white men are evil and should die? No. There are many more examples I could say but I'm getting ready for work and don't have the time.

    My point is that there are millions of Muslims in this world (Yes, Muslim Americans) and even non-Muslim Americans but still evenly as wonderful. There are tons of Muslims in the middle east who are good people that would help you out even if you wouldn't help them. What I'm saying is that just because some people from this group (Who claim to be Muslim) decide to go nuts, it does not mean all Muslims are crazy.


    People, if you believe that all Muslims are evil just because a group of them went mad, then I am sorry to tell you but you are thinking the way Hitler did before he started the Holocaust and that makes you no different from him because that's always where it starts, it starts with hate, hate turns to violence, violence turns to death and death turns to tears.

    For those who are in the process of this thinking, you will one day see what it feels like to be hated for something you have not done. Wheather it be a nut from your religion killing people, a criminal from your race rampaging or even a member from your culture discriminating, people will turn on you just the same as you have turned on them if you do not change your ways. It's a vicious cycle and one day when someone has done something to slander your name, you will be hated by the same people you once hated. Thus, causing more war and hate in this world and I think we can all agree that the last thing this world needs is that.

    It needs love.


    Be part of the solution, not the problem.


    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Thanks so much for this comment, it really proves a lot to people and ultimately sums up the point i was trying to make! i like your statement a lot and fully agree with it; at least there r people who understand reality and choose not to be ignorant and not to judge others based on little or not even factual information...again, thanks a lot for the comment

    Oh and BTW, there r approximately 1.2 billion Muslims in the world just thought i should add that in
