I have a couple of questions, nuffalready. First, which god? You do know that humans have created hundreds of gods over the years. Assuming you are Christian, how do you know that your god exists but Vishnu, Allah, and so many others don't?
OK, let's take your god as the ONE. What does god "know" better than a dying individual? Maybe your god has decided that an individual ending his/her own life comports with your gods wishes? Isn't that what free will is all about?
Conversely, let's suppose suicide is against your god's "knowledge". Who pays the price for disobedience by committing suicide? Of course, it is the person who did do that. So apparently they made such a decision and are wiling to pay the price. What business is it of yours to interfere?
My position: There is no god. If I want to off myself, all you god-botherers should just get out of the way. Go pray, worship or do whatever it is that makes you happy. But leave me out of your silly cult and DON'T TELL ME HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE - OR END IT.

You're asking the wrong guy, loonpt. It's 14noscam's claim that the national parks are controlled by the UN. It's a ridiculous claim, don't you agree?

"Agenda 21, among its many other disturbing consequences, has turned our national parks from natural areas available to the public for minimal-impact recreational use, into UN-controlled bio-preserves."-- 14noscams
Your assertions are appallingly bad but this one stands out because it is so easy to refute. How many blue helmets have you seen patrolling Las Padres National Forest? None? Me neither. Grand Canyon? The national forests all along the Sierras? Nope. Your irrational fear of Agenda 21 and the UN/NWO all point to someone who is lost in the nutosphere of the right wing echo chamber.
That paranoia would be little more than humorous if it weren't for the fact that it blinds you to the FACTS of global warming. Yes, FACTS. It is an observed phenomenon, one that the DoD describes as a major threat to global stability. And they're no pinko, NWO outfit.

"And sanity can get back into the business of running this city before it is permanently ruined for everyone."-- foofighter
That's another thing that's been going on for at least 40 years. If we do this or that the city will be ruined. RUINED, I tell you. It is a meaningless whine that is nearly detached from reality.

Hey, Kelsey: "conservation" -> "conversation" The Indy editors fail yet again.
Hey, Bill: Feeling cranky today, are we? If 20% is too much, then Bertling shouldn't have signed the contract. Or he should have included a better security clause. In any case, extrapolating to "overreaching" government reveals a disconnect from reality.

Eckermann: "extinct" -> "instinct"
$200K+ seems like an awful lot of money for the size of Goleta.

pk is right. Moreover, any god that would suggest the killing of one's own son is a ******* and does not deserve worship, just disdain.
On another note, the idea of the "universality of religion" is just plain laughable. If that were true, there wouldn't be so much religious inspired violence around the world.

"Illegal aliens or their children commit 99% of this horrible behavior as well as 99% of graffiti in Santa Barbara.-- willy88
I don't believe these statistics. Got a cite? I'm 99% sure you're pulling those numbers out of your nether regions.
"Think about that and stop being PC for a minute."-- willy88
"PC" has become a worthless cliche on the right. Lacking any argument, they shout "PC" as if that has any relevance whatsoever.

If you think neutering is equivalent to lopping off your junk, you opinion is so uninformed that it deserves to be ignored.

"Does one really think that any government in that region of the world would have been much better without the "interference" of our government back then?"-- Botany
Yes. Absolutely yes.
Botany, where in the constitution does it endorse - or even allow - US involvement in foreign (Iranian, in this case) governmental affairs?
