43. People die for stupid reasons all the time
Edited on Thu Jun-22-06 03:23 AM by Evoman
Just because a lot of people die for an idea, doesn't make that idea any more true, nor does it make their deaths any less sad. Look at Iraq...the senseless deaths caused by religion and ignorance are a waste of human potential. Historically, the Iraqi people have been shown to be extremely intelligent....imagine that there was no war, nor regressive religion in that region. Imagine the potential for great scientists and thinkers among the people of Iraq and the surrounding areas. There could be the next Einstein or Darwin in that crowd, but their too busy being oppressed by insane religioius rulers to harness that potential.

It is a waste, pure and simple. Every death for religous purposes is a shame.

But the other poster was right....this is another debate.
