Dhaka Bangladesh terror attack
Twenty foreigners were killed by heavily-armed terrorists after being taken hostage at a restaurant in Dhaka Bangladesh today 2nd July 2016.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadi activity online.

Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina said

"It was an extremely heinous act. What kind of Muslims are these people? They don't have any religion,"

What do you think when you hear this? I completely disagree that these criminals do not have any religion. They are in fact obsessed by religion and carry out terrorist actions in the name of their particular form of religious belief.

I think he's trying to say that true believers in god wouldn't behave this way. Sadly, there is ~5,000 years of recorded human history that disagree with him.

Every one thinks they're the good guy.

This is the problem when books that are open to interpretation are given a platform of being the most important thing on the planet and "written by a god". This happens all the time in every religion. It's just the most clear in the Muslim states. Medieval practices being brought to light. We have two side's the "passive" Muslim and the "extremist" Muslim. Both can point to the same book and say that they're doing the work of Allah. It's a clear problem. But in the mind of the believer it's not. Because "Allah" has written the message on their hearts to be able to read the text the way they were ment to be read.

It's the No True Scotsman Fallacy.

This is getting ridiculous. When are they going to piss off enough people for much of the world to get together and rub them out? It'll happen eventually. They mess with too many different entities, they are just going to cause everyone to pull together and then - watch out.

Average?

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Which is exactly what they want.

Voilà! 2 billion people will be forced to take sides ... their traditions and families vs. their modern comforts.

You guys over there might be OK but I don't fancy my chances much.

I doubt it would amount to WW3. I think it would be more targeted than that these days. But if this keeps going on in all kinds of different countries around the world, some day the are going to have enough.

I think it's already a world war. I would say it starts roughly around the begging of the Arab spring.

Agreed. It's like saying that the Roman Catholics who pump millions of dollars annually into the Vatican coffers—but ignore crippled beggars outside its walls—have any religion.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
