  • LOL...I always think of Jeff Dunham and his Achmed the Dead Terrorist bit when I hear anything about 72 virgins now! It's too funny! I'm going to go watch it again now!

  • This is not true...People get brain-washed with this crap thinking that if they kill themselves they will actually get this..they will not nor is it promised anywhere in any religious text...

  • amen, maiasmommy - this is a fallacy and something propagated through our media/etc to spread ignorance and bias towards people who we should really be trying to understand and respect.

  • psst....it was a joke...kay....have a shot of vodka and laugh. If it was real, then you would have to say you cannot negotiate 80 virgins because God doesn't make deals. It was just a joke and I am not sure too many people really believes there are 72 dark eyed virgins dancing at the gate for every martyr :) just a joke...go ahead and laugh :) it will feel good.
