Nah totally disagree with you on this - he speaks the uncomfortable truth and seems a rather mild mannered family man compared to some of the religious fanatics who send him hate mail every single day.



His books are simply superb and they are bestsellers for a reason. :thumbsup:


Don't post videos at me' use your own words.
Mild mannered family man but still an egotistical narcissist.

You've missed my point. Conflict is most commonly considered to be the result of some earlier adverse action by another party, in it's basic sense, the retaliation or retribution coming about as a result of that adverse action, whatever it may be.

What I am saying is that Conflict has most often than not, certainly in written historical times, been the result of an action which 'never actually happened' which is where the propaganda comes in.

As I think the example in my OP clearly shows, 350 years of pain, misery, death and mistrust arising from an event which never actually took place, propaganda is the undisputed king of conflict in my view.


Well if you make the point properly to begin with it would help.

Propaganda works so well because people want to believe it. They want to believe the lies, for some selfish reason the lies work for them.

Religion was/ is needed to deal with the cruelty of humans.
I can't see it changing in the future because humans haven't changed that much.


What we need to happen is for more people to stand up and say. It's not religion It's your life. And when you die believe it or not. That is all you leave, your life and all it's memories. You can't help anybody anymore and you can't do anything about the things you wanted to do something about. Because you are dead. You won't have any feelings about it, you won't give a shit....And why is this??? It is because you are gone gone from your human body. That one I love so much Today... I will love you when I'm gone but you won't see it. You won't feel it. You won't hear my voice when I want to call you and tell you how important you are. All that will happen is.... That I will leave memories. The same as what you will leave. Why not make them nice ones


I really like that. :wubbers:


It's a load of bullshit propaganda.


Having lost someone dear to me, I do like the idea that we have to make things count now. I don’t think there is anything beyond death. I read what was posted there as something quite beautiful, sorry that you had a different view.


I was at a funeral last week, that post sent out some red flags for me.

Sorry, thought it was clear enough. :again?:

Smoke and mirrors.
Why not address my point about people wanting to believe the lies?
