My deepest sympathy to all our French brothers and sisters on this night of senseless, evil carnage.

Me too, I just don't know what to say
the irony being that ad-hominen and appeal to majority are the most often used defences of the apologist.

It's the thought that counts and that thought has to be expressed some way.
"Sorry for your troubles" is often used to express a much deeper felt sympathy.

Looks like all the games being held in France have been postponed according to the EPC website. Thoughts are with those involved in the terrible atrocity in Paris.

I don't know if it's because we've been there so many times or if social media has made it more real/info more accessible but there's a sense of shock from this among my mates that I don't remember feeling for any other atrocity. Just thinking of all those times we've had great nights going for dinner/drinks in Paris and to think that that's all people went out to do last night and never came home. Can't get my head around it.

Just awful.

Still at shock and anger stage. Thankfully no one I know over there was hurt, but they are with the nation in mourning.

Disgusting atrocity.

Very long article here about ISIS and how it's different to Al Qaeda.

http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2015/03/what-isis-really-wants/384980/

Maybe a tad harsh on Islam. But the concept of apostasy(why Daesh kills innocent people) is really medieval and Islam like other religions (like christianity) needs to divorce itself from it.

That article is a clusterfuck of stupid. Don't waste your time.

I'm amazed that it gets trotted out so often.

You could say that very same thing about half the interpretations of the Quran. Any article on a religion as fluid as Islam leaves itself open.

Saw a thing somewhere which stated Islam is as old today as Christianity was during the crusades. Made for a thought-provoking read on the "maturity" of religion.
