If you read closely, you'll see that I said:
"Not to say that [they] aren't scum".
It's a double negative. Please read more closely.
And by far most Palestineans are not members of the Hamas, and I think would like to live in peace with the Israelis, who have taken most of their lands and are well on the way of taking the other lands.
The Israelis have dislocated millions of Palestineans.
They have forced some of them them to live in an area with a population density of 5046people/kmĀ², a population density around 13236% that of Israel.

Point taken. I will read more closely next time. Yes Zionism was a mistake. I said that already. The point I was making was that the people who are actually running the show and making decisions FOR the Palestinian people are Hamas members. It's a dual government with Hamas and Abbas. The Palestinians did not deserve to be displaced, but I don't believe that the Israelis are worse. The reason Zionism happened was because Jewish people were persecuted throughout the entire world. Both have committed crimes. However if you look at the motive of the governments one says "The security and prosperity of the Jewish people" and the other is "Death to the Jews". People can't just allow this to become some sort of tit for tat which one is worse scenario. It needs to be shown that MOST people in both Israel and Palestinian territories want a two state solution. If Hamas stays in power I can guarantee there will be no solution that doesn't involve killing as many Jews as possible.

I sympathize with both the Palestinian people, and the Jewish people. There are just some shit governments in power and both the Palestinians and Israel need to get off of their cycle of revenge bombings and work out a peaceful solution. It's childish behavior they are participating in.

It's a wide organization, of course different opinions come forth. However, they have stated that ''exterminating the jews'' isn't a common tenet of theirs. They do however wants to exterminate the State of Israel.

Do you really take Hamas at face value? I mean they are practically a declared terrorist organization. Also I can't take Mahmoud Abbas seriously. He can't create a government with a group with a long history of radical antisemitism and then within the next few days say that the holocaust was bad. It is slimy to do that. I don't believe that Zionism was the correct course of action to begin with, but I doubt Hamas is looking for a stable solution that doesn't involve Islamic domination and the spilling of Jewish blood.

Of course I meant Hamas when I said the "exterminate the Jews" quotation, not the Palestinians who have the rights to their land.

Given. As I said in one of my previous comments, I'm not really pushing for true or untrue. My whole point is you can't produce evidence of a god not existing and thus the comic is simply a false premise.

the rest of it is just... critical thinking I guess you could call it, about how a being such as man and a being such as god would relate to one another, or even be ABLE to relate to one another.

As to physical being, yes the ant knows the boot, but what about 100 generations of ants later when the the boot is on a shoe rack? The dog can relate to it's owner, but it can't relate to an economy, yet that economy still exists.

It's basically just all food for thought.

I'll address the first line first since that's pretty important.

NO ONE in the texts claim to know the mind of God the claim is to "carry the word of God" and "spread his message."

I don't understand you saying 'again' It's the first time I's used the ant and boot metaphor.

I used the ant and boot metaphor to make it kind of simple for you to understand and because it's a quote from popular media, It's an apt representation since the ant is incapable of conceiving everything the boot represents.

But try this: A pet and their owner. Do you think the pet is at all capable of understanding why the owner leaves for hours at a time. Do you think it can fathom the idea of a store for it's food, or that a plant right down the road (I live near a farm) is turned into that food through various complex machinations or physical and economical nature?

A pet has no ability to understand it nor the capability to even know the existence of it. And that's with only a 75% diference in our DNA. Relate that to Human and a god. It's not possible for us to understand what a god is or does, we only have our own interpretations of it in the base area we can comprehend.

No, I said in essence salvation is repenting for your sins. Basically in saying you're sorry. That salvation is then provided by god.

It's a closed circle, If you don't believe in god, you don't believe in salvation from your sins. You don't even believe in sins, just right, wrong, and making amends for past deeds, thus you don't need god nor the salvation provided.

Religious people are no more self centered than normal people. Being self centered is human. It's also scientifically the natural way for non-hive based animals. Of course it would be thought that everything would be designed for us, we're dominant on our planet and at the time believed everything that existed was on our planet. Again it's a matter of interpreting something we can't understand into means and measures we're capable of comprehending.

The difference is that the owner is a physical being. The dog knows that the owner exists, and the ant knows that this boot exists. The point is, no one knows whether a god exists or not and to assume that there is one based on old texts written by men seems a bit naive.

It doesn't matter what the boot or owner represent. It's a matter of whether the actual being exists or not, especially one that cares about who you sleep with and what foods you eat. Selectively picking information to support a pre-determined conclusion is bound to have faulty information.
