    Well it is to me and I don't like being in the dark. There's spooks out in that darkness.

    Don't worry, it wasn't that interesting or exciting.

    Didn't Japan have a terrorism event with sarin gas a while back, even before the Trade Tower attacks?

    In my opinion there has always been a group like this and always will be. Their leader is satan and they are fallen angels and human beings who have decided to do it satan's way too. But according to the the version of the story I believe...even though it seems they win and there will be an One World Order, Government, and Religion someday led by a person called the Antichrist...their victory is only for a short time.

    When did this turn into a religious thread?

    I mentioned the sarin gas attacks in Japan, which was a direct reference to the opening post - but those attacks did have a religious nature.

    Well you are definitely entitled to your opinion. And so am I and my opinion was given on a direct reference to Martin's opening post.

    I don't think Martin referenced religion in his original post.

    Obviously, that's true. To me, it just sounds like she's acknowledging where her opinion comes from. As someone who grew up in a Northern climate and is currently living in a Northern state, that might effect my opinion on a variety of subject, including weather, gardening, accents, clothing, and some other things. Because my place of birth and current residence effects an opinion I may have, my comments don't have to be restricted to a geography forum.

    We are all influenced by our circumstances, our geography, our traditions, cultures, languages and yes, even religions. Sometimes we know where our opinions and ideas come from, while at other times they are simply part of who we are. Faith is a significant part of a person's life, if that person is one of faith, and it apparently seems important even to those without faith, so a person's faith is not relegated to the religious section.

    When a topic evolves into a religious topic, I will split it off and move that part of it to the religious forum. But to say, "As a Christian, I think..." that doesn't change the topic of a thread, particularly when the rest of the sentence is on-topic. Some of my opinions are based on the fact that I am a Christian, while others are based on things that I have learned or experienced, or simply because they seem right to me.

    To refresh everyone's memory, this topic is about immigration and the idea that some of the adverse effects may relate to IQ, which is not something that I necessary ascribe to, but it's certainly an allowable topic.
