An alternate theory opposite the governments theory is not crazy if it is based on facts.

No need to lash out at me just because you are uneducated regarding the finest coffees

http://most-expensive.net/coffee-in-world

The most expensive coffee in the world does not hail from Jamaica or Hawaii, but instead from Indonesia.

Kopi Luwak the most expensive coffee in the world does exist, and those who drink the expensive coffee insist that it is made from coffee beans eaten, partly digested and then excreted by the Common palm civet, a weasel-like animal.

explain your words. "only if you make that special type of coffee FR loves - the one that MIXES with poop"

Again take your medication and explain your words i.e.
"FR loves - the one that MIXES with poop"

The lashing out that you speak of is a reflection that you are delusional and are in need of your medication urgently and of course your words that need explaining also underscores the need.

It turns out that someone has already coined this term

EVOLIVING [é-vo-li-ving] is the vision of sustainability, the key to an improved quality of life that is distinctly NUVALI. Beginning with a revolution in our way of thinking, this vision is not just for today but for the years to come—a forward-looking mindset that embraces sustainability towards shaping our future.
NUVALI Evoliving
It all begins with a revolution in our way of thinking, a vision not just for today but for the years to come. A forward-looking mindset that embraces sustainability as key towards shaping our future. Nurturing the welfare of our environment is steadfastly linked to assuring a solid future for generations to come. Ultimately, it’s about what really matters to us—clean, fresh air, abundant greenery, safety and security, education, a good job, sound health. NUVALI seamlessly integrates family, work, and leisure, generating a diversity of spaces, activities, and communities—allowing people the means to live their full potential. A vibrant landscape springs forth, freely shared by all.
Converging nature, people, and technology in NUVALI, sustainability cultivates the dynamic relationship among the ecological, social, and economic webs of life.
Evoliving is the seamless weaving of life, nature and technology to secure a vibrant future, an observance of responsibility, harmony and diversity, enabling people to live the way they choose.
Reads like the unattainable goals the WHO once set.
Everybody is entitled but it remains elusive.

Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-39

Enemies of Islam represent our prophet as a very cruel and blood thirsty man, who would kill his “opponents, enemies and any one who disagreed with him” at “the drop of hat” and all his adversaries would be “terrified” at the mere sight of him.

The picture is far from true, let us look at some incidents from the life of prophet, as what was “this sword which killed the enmity for ever”

The Case of : HABBAR BIN ASWAD

HABBAR was a resident of Makkah and he was one of the bitterest enemies of Islam. He remained enemy of prophet and Muslims during their 13 years mission in Makkah.

When prophet migrated to Madina and wanted to bring her daughters ZAINAB and Others (FATIMA, & UMME KULTHOOM) to Madina. He sent his adopted son ZAID with camels to bring them back. ZAID took Fatima and UMM KULTHOOM, and wanted to take ZAINAB also.

ZAINAB was already married to ABU AL AAS and she was in advanced stage of pregnancy. When she had boarded the camel. Family members of ABU AL AAS, came and said that we will not allow Prophet’s daughter to be taken out of Makkah in broad day light.

During the discussion, this stone hearted HABBAR hit the camel on whom ZAINAB was sitting and she fell from the camel and had miscarriage. She suffered internal bleeding and never recovered from that injury and it lead to her death a few years later.

Prophet was extremely sad and unhappy when he learned of the accident, on the other hand this HABBAR remained unrepentant of the criminal act he had done.

When prophet conquered Makkah in year 8 H, he gave general amnesty to all people of Makkah, except 8 or 10 people. HABBAR ‘ name was in those eight or ten people for the crime he had done to prophet’ daughter.

HABBAR was afraid of his life and he hid himself in fear….but after some days, he was told that prophet does not kill those who declare Islam to him.

Accordingly he went to prophet and declared his Islam and asked for pardon for all his previous mistakes and crimes.

Prophet had him in his total control and if he would have been like any of those Earthly kings and rulers or cruel as our “Experts” would led us to believe, executing such a personal enemy would have been for him a moment’s decision.

But he was sent as a “mercy to the Universe”, so even in this condition, he took “His Sword of Mercy” and pardoned HABBAR thereby setting an example which is hard to be broken in the annals of this world!

How can you compare a "non Doer" with someone who "does things" (pardon me for using these words, because in Islam we do not pit one prophet against another and start rating them).
Jesus' mission was totally different from our Prophet's mission.
If you want to compare our prophet, then compare it against the life of Moses or David or some prophet, who got things done.
It is "very easy" to simply preach and go away....many "saints" do that....but to change the working system of world , you need people who look other people in the eyes and transform the things.
Our prophet did not only preach, he showed how these are to be implemented.
And that is WHY you people are so jealous of his achievements and try to quench the fire of jealousy and hatred by maligning his personality and character in any way you can.
But that will not change the FACTS. Our prophet has admirers amongst the very bests. In Encyclopaedia Britannica he is called as "Most Successful of all religious personalities"
Thomas Carlyle Chose our prophet as his "hero prophet" and not Jesus or Moses.
Michel H hart selected our prophet as # 1 in the list of "most influential persons that lived in history" and not Jesus or Moses.
I should take their words or words of some uncouth, bad smelling and black hearted person like you?
awww, struck a chord, did I? The Encyclepedia Britainica calls your Prophet a hero of some sort? That is your validation? A man who married and sexually molested an 8-year old child. Muq, you are falling to pieces. You are doing that because you know good and well that your position is untenable. I never put my Prophet up against your's, you don't have one. You have a usurper, and you know it. Good luck on your journey, Muq, wherever it takes you.

Religion may not survive the Internet
http://www.salon.com/2013/01/16/religion_may_...
....A traditional religion, one built on “right belief,” requires a closed information system. That is why the Catholic Church put an official seal of approval on some ancient texts and banned or burned others. It is why some Bible-believing Christians are forbidden to marry nonbelievers. It is why Quiverfull moms home school their kids from carefully screened text books. It is why, when you get sucked into conversations with your fundamentalist uncle George from Florida, you sometimes wonder if he has some superpower that allows him to magically close down all avenues into his mind.(He does!)
Religions have spent eons honing defenses that keep outside information away from insiders. The innermost ring wall is a set of certainties and associated emotions like anxiety and disgust and righteous indignation that block curiosity. The outer wall is a set of behaviors aimed at insulating believers from contradictory evidence and from heretics who are potential transmitters of dangerous ideas. These behaviors range from memorizing sacred texts to wearing distinctive undergarments to killing infidels. Such defenses worked beautifully during humanity’s infancy. But they weren’t really designed for the current information age.
Tech-savvy mega-churches may have twitter missionaries, and Calvinist cuties may make viral videos about how Jesus worship isn’t a religion, it’s a relationship, but that doesn’t change the facts: the free flow of information is really, really bad for the product they are selling.....
----------
I disagree - but the article is an interesting read, regardless.
Well, it is right that most religions are taught to the people who are in them.
For instance many many christians can quote lots of scripture, but if ask what the hope is within them, they will say something like, when they were baptized, or how many good things they have done,or usually how long and what church they attend.
Many know alot "about " a God they do not know.

If a person would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that atleaat once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
Writes someone else, not me clearly, but it is true.

I truly believe with all that is within me, that God created the earth and all we can see, and much more we can't.

I'm not smart enough to debate evolution, and don't have to be. A person can tangle up anyone in his own backyard, for sure when one is very common, and the other very knowledgable about a subject.
Plus evolution has many many different paths, and many 50 and 100 dollar words, but when it is all said and done it is just a theory, and not solid evidence of anything.

Many times people see what they want to see, and don't look at other ideas.
I have no problem seeing any other material or any other religious ideas.

I am solid on what I believe to be truth,but I do have a personal relationship with God, and not just something my mom told me, or raised me in.-

There are some pretty far out there ideas, like there is no objects in the world, only vibrations of energy and relationships. But saying there is a God and heaven is also far out there.

I believe God and science goes hand in hand, but I don't have to make God fit into the science "box " either. Yet true science fits perfect in Gods box.
All other science is based on beliefs, not fact about what happened billions of years ago, but what is believed happened,and most of the evolutionary stuff, that people must take by faith, is pretty much farther put then just.about any crazy religous stuff.
