Why do people love conflict so much? I really don't understand why people get such high enjoyment of watching people make each other feel bad. This sucks, because humanity seems to thrive when people support and build each other up.
Who knows, with that black dude there could have been some racial shit going on underneath, where he could be disagreeing with the way religious white people control society. Let's face it, if you're the white guy in this situation, this probably would not be very fun, at all. These poor missionaries are forced into these ridiculous social situations because of what some ancient book tells them they must do in order to enter some imaginary "celestial kingdom" which nobody knows actually exists. It's a completely faith based belief, and as we well know, faith is created in the mind. The fact that this book tells them this shit is true is insane, and the fact that people actually buy into this shit is even more prepostorous. The guys who wrote these "sacred" books were men just like you and me, but 2000 years dumber.
These kinds of confrontations are silly and should never happen. I am not however saying it is bad to be religious. In fact, I think If you thoroughly believe in god and it genuinely makes you feel better about yourself and makes your life nicer than if you were athiest, then you should defininitely follow your gut and be religious. However from the eyes of an athiest such as myself, I can't ever subject myself to thinking about a spiritual entity that is a human being himself is controlling this earth and everybody's life path. In the grand scheme of things, our friends from the video are essentially arguing about which imaginary friend and its well tailored elaborate story to back it is the correct one to believe in--wrap your head around THAT. What someone does or believes in to cope with insecurities and uncertainties of this world and their own personal lives is a very deep topic that can ususally only be discussed with close friends and family. Now, for these poor mormon guys, the fact that they are forced to go around and try to persuade people into their belief system makes most people listening to their shenanigans extremely uncomfortable, which in turn probably makes them uncomfortable as well. With this video we now see that for some odd reason this exchange of weird feelings and overall bad vibrations is glorified. Our society thoroughly enjoys seeing religion on religion shitstorms.
Our country and many others alike evidently blame wars that are obviously about business purposes on religion, so that people support them so they can ultimately throw their money at it. Nobody would back our government if they blatantly told us every business transaction they made. Let's face it. We've been trying to swindle oil from arabs ever since we invented cars and industrialism. We fucking need the stuff to run this country and generate a good looking GDP, and we need it cheap.
I'm not saying this next bit actually happpened for sure, but lets theoretically say some stupid feud happened between the Afghans and GW Bush's boys at Enron. Everybody knows the Enron guys threw money at GWB to put him in office and that they were homies from Texas. The Enron fiasco happened right before 9/11. Jeff Skilling, Ken Lay and Andrew Fastow, who were the CEO, Chairman on the board of directors, and CFO were selling all their stock in Enron right before the collapse--they knew what was about to go down. Apparantly around that time they were trying to build a pipeline through afghanistan. that obviously failed and its highly possible that they could have fucked the afgans out of a lot of money. Because swindling the stock market is how Enron got so powerful, it makes perfect sense that they would go after the world trade center to retaliate. In order for us to get back at them for essentially blowing up our stock market, we started a war with them. The reason our government gave us is that they were trying to destroy our freedom and didn't like the way our country was run. BULL-SHIT. the only thing that will ever make people blow up stock market centers is a large amount of money. No amount of religious intolerance will ever be enough of a reason for someone to pull some shit like that.
This goes back to my point, that we blame a lot of extremely complicated shit on religious differences so we can get stupid people to back up our government when they fuck up. So we should stop arguing about which religion is stronger or weaker, and people should stop getting off on stupid ass videos like this.
