    From wikipedia:



    Since the Irish that saved civilization were Christian, I took license with my thread title. But it's still perfectly accurate. :cool:

    indeed.. being conquered by the dogma of the romans probably IS why we have air conditioning, direct deposit and barbecue sauce.

    So that's what civilization means to you. :eusa_think:

    Well, in all fairness, I guess two out of three go a long way toward allowing you to never have to leave the comfort of your mom's basement.

    I realize that it probably scarred you when you came downstairs and I had your mom locked in some sexual contortions that a mexican wrestler would be proud of but do you have to keep bringing up relatives?


    Hell, nothing says "modern society" QUITE like a catholic doing what catholics do to non believers back in the good ole days, eh? Yes, talk about the saving grace of our modern culture.

    :rolleyes:

    No matter how much it might piss you off, it doesn't change the fact that the thread title is accurate. :rofl:

    meh.. accurate to a guy who really, REALLY wants it to be so.


    go hold a sign and picket reality at a soldiers funeral dude... You'll probably net more attention than you do here with similar stupid arguments.

    (ps, right now, this very minute, I am laughing at you for suggesting that "civilization" must be interpreted through the opinion of the european church.. I mean, you know how christian were people living in the CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION! HA! Native civilization?!? nope.. not blond haired, blue eyed "jewish" enough! HAHAHAHAHAHA!)

    I understand your reticence. Reality can be a real bitch sometimes, especially for those that spend so much time in a fantasy world.
