Interesting read, nothing about numbers but.....

"On April 10, at the Turkish parliament in Ankara, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan did something unusual during his usual weekly address to the deputies of his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). He suddenly paused during his address and called the national education minister, Ismet Yilmaz, to the podium. The two men then murmured for about half a minute in front of the huge audience. Muted microphones did not catch the whole conversation, but the minister was heard speaking about "the report on deism" and “the thoughts of our youth about this.” “No,” Erdogan was heard saying in a definitive tone. “That is wrong.”......."

Blame the internet........


Most religious zealot's are finding out through the internet that all that crazy shit their religion wants them to "believe" in is pure bullshit.

And the sickest/most crazy right now is islam.

It's really time for the U.S. to recognize the Turkish threat and tensions they're escalating in the Meditoranian and Syria. Turkey will voluntarily leave NATO before NATO kicks them out. By then they will have solidified their alliance with Russia.
