The Islamic, the Jewish and the Christian Allah is the sameAllah, do not argue on this. Allah will reward each group according to their deeds.
Contradiction: 9:30 says Jews and Christians are idolaters.
Contradiction: 3:118, 5:51, 5:57, 58:14 and 60:13 say not to be friendly with unbelievers, including Jews and the Christians.
2:148
Every nation has a qibla; Allah has given each group of people a law and a way of life.
Contradiction: 25:51 says if willed Allah could have sent messengers to every nation to instill fear; but He didn’t.
2:167
Those who plead for another chance, Allah will disown them and send them to hell to dwell there forever.
Contradiction: 6:128 says as long as Allah wishes, not forever.
2:185
As a guide to mankind, Allah sent the Qur’an in the month of Ramadan (the ENTIRE Qur’an.)
Contradiction: 17:106, 25:32 say Allah sent the Qur’an in stages.
2:219
Wines and gambling are Satan’s handiwork—there are some good but great sins.
Contradiction: 47:15 and 83:25 say Allah will serve Satan’s handiwork, wine, in Islamic Paradise.
2:221
Do not marry idolatresses until they believe. A believing slave woman is better than a non-believing free woman; do not get your girls married to unbelievers until they (the unbelievers) convert to Islam.
Contradiction: 9:30 says the Jews and the Christians are idolaters, but Allah allows Muslim men to marry their women without converting to Islam. According to ibn Abbas,‘I do not know of a bigger Shirk than her saying that Jesus is her Lord!’ This means that the Christian women are idolaters.
There is much more of this shit just showing who the asshole arabs follow and made into a God.
Great.

I get my Talmud lessons from a skinhead in Virginia and now I get my Quran lessons from an Israeli Jew.

This has to be one of those "what is wrong with this picture?" pictures.

Those Jews wrote their Book with their own hands, and faked that as the Book from Allah, Allah curses them.
Contradiction: 6:34, 6:115 say none has the power to change the words of Allah.
2:106
Whatever verses Allah abrogates or causes Muhammad to forget, He replaces them with similar or better verses (Muhammad did forget some Qur’anic verses—Walker, p. 166).
Contradiction: 6:34, 6:115 say none can change the words in the Qur'an.
2:107
The dominion of the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah; there is no protector besides Him.
Contradiction: In 13:11, 41:31, 50:17‑18, and 82:10 Allah says angels are our protectors and guards.
Contradiction: 5:55 says Allah’s messengers are our protectors.
2:116
The Christians belief that Allah had begotten a son is untrue; Allah possesses everything in heavens and on earth, everything worships Him.
Contradiction: 3:180, 15:23, 19:40, 19:79‑80, 21:89, 28:58 say Allah inherits from infidels/other creatures.

Contradiction: 7:54, 10:3, 11:7 and 25:59 say six days of creation.
Contradiction: 41:9–12 say eight days of creation.
Contradiction: 6:101 says Allah could not create a son for himself because He does not have a consort (a wife or a concubine).

Contradiction: 7:143 says Moses was the first Muslim.
Contradiction: 26:51 says some Egyptians were the first Muslims.
WOW these "contradictions" are so stupid. And all of them were taken out of context. Even someone who isn't even remotely interested in religion can tell how stupid these arguments are.

Santa's gone a little blue.

I had my arm on the window sill, doing about 65 mph and thinking how nice it finally feels outside, wondering if Faith can still get out her driveway when the Paragon calls. She wanted to see if I can stop to pick up some spuds for the you-know-whats. Well, when I got to the store I decided I'd better make sure I didn't forget anything else that may be important so I watched Part 1 again just to get the ingredient list.(good thing too...I needed juevos)

As a Berkeley liberal transexual, you DO know that the use of the "r" word is considered politically incorrect? Stupid's good.

It's going to be awhile before we put the elbow on the sill, but, the 85 Mile ride to Foxwoods was still nice. And, the place was packed. So much for the fiscal cliff. Spuds for the you-know-whats, has me at a loss. Tail pipe Qassams?

I'm sure there's a perfectly logical explanation for the multiple glaring contradictions which can easily be blown off in context. Unfortunately, calling him an idiot doesn't change the context or explain the contradictions, it just makes you look weak.

I don't know why you and TRD get the impression that I'm a liberal all of a sudden.
The only thing I care about in US politics is foreign policy. Gay marriage, abortion, immigration... that's none of my concern. You guys can marry your dogs for all I care.

Sorry. Although I was very interested in religion at one point in my life, it's no longer my cup of tea.
I'm not going to waste hours just explaining religious stuff to a bunch of people who are going to hate my religion regardless.

You used to define yourself by your faith, now it's not your cup of tea. That neither changes the context or explains the contradictions but hey, if that's your best move...

I mean weak in terms of weakness...the opposite of strength. Their best and only move is death for the cause. That is strengthless.

<quoted text>What's happening in Egypt right now proved who's the savage and who's the civilized. Liberals, even after losing the elections, want to impose their views on the majority of Egyptians who elected Morsi and the Brotherhood. The judicial system, which is rotten to the core, would have had their heads cut off by Mubarak had they dared to publicly oppose him. But now they're taking advantage of Morsi's lenience to start an uprising against him and go back to being the corrupt f**ks that they are. Not to mention the conspiracy that's being plotted by leftist leaders like Baradei and others who were serving under Mubarak, all with the help of the US.
All this chaos you see right now is caused by Liberals. The Islamists haven't even stepped in because they know it might risk dividing the country.
But no matter what happens, Morsi will remain president. And if by some miracle he's killed or overthrown, then liberals can kiss their democracy goodbye, because then it will be a pure Islamic Revolution that will rise on the skulls of leftists. I would hate for that to happen, but I'd rather have an Islamic Egypt that fights corruption and sides with Palestinians, than a corrupt liberal Egypt that serves as another base for Israel and the US.
" but I'd rather have an Islamic Egypt that fights corruption and sides with Palestinians, than a corrupt liberal Egypt that serves as another base for Israel and the US."
exactly. and it certainly is a perverted use of the word "liberal" to tie "liberal" with serving the needs of israel. but of course, that perversion has happened in US politics

Of course not. That wasn't what I meant. Every major leftist party in the world, except the US Democrats, has exhibited support for Palestinians. Though within the base of the Democratic party there is a growing support for Palestine.

Unfortunately, Egypt liberals are being supported by the US. This support isn't free and Palestinians will end up footing the bill.
