Re: Suicide is a survival strategy (for species).
AZPaul3 just relishes the idea that religious extremist minds are broken, but what he doesn't get is that woo has two sides to it.

I and It.
God and all the rest.
Principle: We are NOT God. (AA)

A suicidal bomber thinks that GO runs their head, but in reality their own demented mind causes the bomb to go BOOM.

Same with many of the Christians. (To be fair, AZ )

GOD may well think algorithmically but in equations far beyond our capacity to decipher. After all, until we surrender to Him, we are being run by IT.

Hint: Pennywise

Both sides were trying to win the war and, in the long run, save lives.

The philosophical question is complex.
1) Can there even be two sides?
(Dualism is alive and well.)

You will likely argue that the sane side is secular and scientific.

I will simply pray, claim you as one of the Lord's children, and eliminate your side.

Of course, we white folks from Europe already tried that after Constantine essentially nationalized Christianity.

Now the darn Leftists want to push the National Debt into the government so that we the people HAVE to pay it off!

My side says that we should have just punted and let the other side deal with it.

This is why they produce suicide bombers.

And FYI everybody, my blood sugar is getting better. I'm just ornery and random this morning.
