I read somewhere that by putting those biblical references on the gun scopes, they're strengthening the beliefs of Islamists that they're fighting a Holy War.

Onward Christian soldiers! vomit

I never noticed them on my scope. They could put a damn cross on it for all I care, as long as it does not screw up my shooting.

Its almost microscopic see CNN link in first post.
Its generally unnoticeable but highly politically incorrect.

I thought the cross in your scope was what helped you shoot straight? wink

If we spent more time killing the enemy during a war and less time worrying about pissing them off or hurting their feelings, we might actually win one of these things. I doubt that Islamic extremists are going to become more of a threat due to an obscure, barely noticeable scripture reference. To them, this already is a Holy War - it's called Jihad.

The decision to remove these markings should not be a PC move, but a Constitutional one. That's in a perfect world, though.

I suppose a Star of David would be overkill, target-centering-wise? wink

And an OM symbol would just be damn useless! grin

Helium II is a superfluid, a quantum mechanical state of matter with strange properties .

The thermal conductivity of helium II is greater than that of any other known substance, a million times that of helium I and hundred of times that of copper. This is because heat conduction occurs via a quantum mechanism.

Second sound is a quantum mechanical phenomenon in which heat transfer occurs by wave-like motion, rather than by the usual mechanism of diffusion. Heat takes the place of pressure in normal sound waves. This leads to very high thermal conductivity. It's known as "second sound" because the wave motion of heat is similar to the propagation of sound in air.

Sound waves are fluctuations in the density of molecules in a substance; second sound waves are fluctuations in the density of phonons. Second sound can be observed in any system in which most phonon-phonon collisions conserve momentum. This occurs in superfluids and in dielectric crystals when Umklapp scattering is small.

I agree with you fully however we unfortunately share this world with many irrational beings.

The Irony is the Monothiestic god is waging a holy war on his holy war.

What an irational world we live in.

Exactly! Bravo! I completely agree with everything that you said above.

The only reason that we should remove those markings is because the U.S. should not be considered a “Christian country”. Not because we’re afraid of pissing off our enemies.

Damn. I think you just gave me an idea. Next scope I buy I'm going to have the cross-hairs be a custom-made Sigil of Baphomet! grin

Blah. Things like this are why we need separation of church and state. And Sigils of Baphomet cross-hairs.
